I still can't believe it, yet it's true!
I've pinched myself and thought it may be a dream but apparently it's the real deal!
Well, voting closes on September 9th, so if you haven't voted yet but you would like to vote for me....time is nearly up, so please take a moment and pop over and do so!

And if you do....I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Meanwhile, in other news.....I have a renewed zest for reading these days as I have found not one but TWO books in a row that I have been unable to put down!
You know the kind....you stay up as late as you can possibly manage to keep your eyes open, just to read one more paragraph, one more page, one more chapter. And in the morning you open up to where you left off to read just a little bit more with your morning coffee.
Because what a great way to start the day!
Before you know it, an hour has flown by, maybe two!
Well, the book that started me off on this rekindled passion for reading was the one I just finished....in only two days!
I can't remember the last time I got through a book in two days - it's been years, honestly.
|The New Neighbor|
How much can you really know about the woman next door?
Ninety-year-old Margaret Riley is content hiding from the world. Stoic and independent, she rarely leaves the Tennessee mountaintop where she lives, finding comfort in the mystery novels that keep her company—until she spots a woman who’s moved into the long-empty house across the pond.
Her neighbor, Jennifer Young, is also looking to hide. On the run from her old life, she and her four-year-old son, Milo, have moved to a quiet town where no one from her past can find her.
In Jennifer, Margaret sees both a potential companion for her loneliness and a mystery to be solved. She thinks if she says the right thing, tells the right story, Jennifer will open up, but Jennifer refuses to talk about herself, her son, his missing father, or her past. Frustrated, Margaret crosses more and more boundaries in pursuit of the truth, threatening to unravel the new life Jennifer has so painstakingly created—and reveal some secrets of her own…
I'm telling you, I was hooked from the very first page!
As soon as I finished that amazing book, I launched right into another that's been sitting in my kindle waiting for me:
|The Girl On The Train|
Amazon describes it as follows:
EVERY DAY THE SAME
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
I'm about 75% done with this book and it's all I can do to put it down in the mornings to get ready for work!
Because I am so incredibly excited about these two books I have decided that one lucky reader is going to get a copy of not one but BOTH of these books!
But....like the Amara voting....the giveaway for these books also ends September 9th.
Enter now! A winner will be chosen at random and will be announced on Saturday morning!
Good luck and happy reading...and voting! :) a Rafflecopter giveaway
