I had a funny sort of day on Monday. One where it set off looking as though I wasn't going to achieve much. However it all turned around and I got all sorts done including sorting out my Christmas cards. I have a folder on Excel, where I list who we received Christmas cards from. I also note if we got photos, letters or a note written in the card. Must say only two people sent letters this year. I am beginning to think Christmas cards will be things of the past very shortly. I did a post way back when about recycling Christmas cards, here
Do you do anything with your Christmas cards?
"The Rose of Winslow Street," by Elizabeth Camden
In the small town of Colden, Massachusetts, Libby Sawyer leads a quiet, predictable life. Yet beneath the surface, she is haunted by a secret.
Newly arrived on American shores, Michael Dobrescu is far from predictable, and his arrival in Colden is anything but quiet. Michael's shocking claim to be the rightful owner of Libby's father's house immediately alienates him from the appalled citizens of Colden.
Despite her own outrage, Libby is unwittingly fascinated by this enigmatic man who seems equally intrigued by her. As the court's decision about the house looms and the layers of mystery surrounding Michael's past are unveiled, Libby's loyalties are tested in ways she never imagined.
Must say I wasn't too sure when I started this book, however by the second chapter, I was sucked right in. Loved the main character Libby and you can't help but love the description of Michael, a typical hero in a romance novel!!!
There is enough mystery and intrigue that keeps you wanting to read what happens next. I didn't guess the mystery of the house and thought the story was going one way, but then it veered off into another direction. That made the story even more interesting to my mind.
Stars out of 5 : 4.5 The start was a little weak, but once the story got going it hooked you. One that is definitely worth the read.
