Another *Books* post!!

I read some books again!!  I may have to make this a habit!!

Of course - with 4 people vying for the Wifi in the Middle of Nowhere.... Books are much easier to get my hands on than a show to binge watch.... 

The first one I read:
The Country Guesthouse.  
I didn't think I liked it, and was ready to put it down, when there was a twist that kept me reading. But the start was a little Cliche for me... but then there was a little mystery and that made my mind go all over the place - and if I was a writer... Inow have about 15 plotlines this could follow haha!

This one I really liked - it is not a hard read, but the story starts from two different perspectives. and the decisions that the characters make come out as the book goes along, and you sympathize.... and look over your shoulder.... just in case ;-)

This book intrigues me, only because Cleo is a single mom who was pregnant in her senior year of college, she goes to Law school with a young child and is a Senator at 37.... well then her life comes into focus for us.

BUT!! I have a kid who just graduated law school, and he is in the middle of prepping for the Bar ( or maybe he will have taken it by now) and being a mom myself - I just wonder where in the heck she could do all this without boatloads of help --- 

That aside - its actually a good book about Women and realizing we need our other women

I am on the wait list at the library for the The Country Guesthouse thanks for mentioning it I had read the previous books in that series and the second one you mention was a kindle unlimited so I got that one to read - I'm set now for a little bit!

I've downloaded "Cleo McDougal Regrets Nothing" but haven't started reading it yet. It's good to hear from someone who liked it.

Nothing like a couple of good books to simmer in your mind each summer!
