The Spirit of '76: From Politics to Technology, the Year America Went Rock & Roll (Kindle Single) - David Browne

Today is the first full day of summer vacation for my kids. Don't know how much reading I will be getting done while they are home, but I hope to finish Wishing Lake and at least get started on One in a Million this weekend. Keeping on the contemporary romance track, I hope to get Café Au Lait and Welcome to Last Chance done next week. On the non-fiction side, I want to get The Spirit of '76 read.

 

I am hoping that Storm Hector brings relief from my allergies. Happy reading!

Harmony Cabins (Finding Home #2) by Regina Hart
Harmony Cabins (Finding Home Series Book 2) - Regina Hart

Another good installment in the small town contemporary series. This time we find Jackson Sansbury, the last living member of Trinity Falls, OH founding family, owning and running a cabin resort at the edge of town. Jackson has had a rough couple of years; his wife cheated on him while he was at the hospital with their daughter who was fighting (and ultimately lost her battle with) cancer. With the towns 150th birthday celebration just weeks away, the citizens of Trinity Falls hope that he can come around to celebrating with them; but for now he is just dealing with his grief in his own way by being a grumpy recluse.

 

Until Audra "Penny" Lane comes to spend a summer in the one renovated cabin at the resort. Her manager is a native of Trinity Falls and thinks that getting Audra away from the pressure cooker that is Los Angeles will help her get over her writer's block (Audra is a songwriter who just won a Grammy) and help with her insomnia. She finds the small town life very liberating and begins to find her muse again. 

 

Jackson and Audra make a sweet, wonderful couple and both their exes can die in a fiery mosh pit. Doreen amps up her mayoral campaign and gets caught in a sort of love triangle (but let's face it, anyone is better than that asshole Coach Leo). I kind of knew what secret woman Darius was seeing in the next town over and was proven right. The secret coming to light was a nice bit of fireworks to end Trinity Falls celebration.

 

Plot wise, this book moves slow in the first half and then layer upon layer of revelations begin to emerge and makes the story so engrossing. There are other plotlines that are a continuation from the previous book and are left hanging somewhat to be continued in the next book, but these plotlines give the reader a fuller sense of the world building and help set up the next book. Darius really shines in this book and I can't wait to read his story.

Lineage A Supernatural Thriller By: Joe Hart
Lineage: A Supernatural Thriller - Joe Hart

My husband and I listened to this book on our way home from vacation, both of us were so engrossed we barely talked for the 12 hours it played. The prologue is a little weird but it does make sense latter in the book. The book was very chilling. I am glad we listened to this on a long trip instead of a few hours at a time. It made the miles seem to pass faster as well. Neil Hellegers did an amazing job with the narration of this story. He fully kept us engrossed and made the story come alive.

Obscura by Joe Hart
Obscura - Joe Hart

 A new form of dementia, called Losian, has taken Dr. Gillian Flynn's husband, and it is a race against time to find the cause and hopefully a cure, as now her young daughter suffers from it. As her funding dries out, NASA steps in, asking her for her help on a secret mission where the crew are suffering symptoms eerily similar to Losians. Will she find her answer there, or will she be coming up against something more insidious?

 

I loved the premise of this book, and it kept me engaged all the way throughout. It has, of course, the sci-fi element, but it was also a psychological thriller. The main character deals with an addiction to opioids, which to tell you the truth, was the one thing that threw me off, as I do not see how anyone with that kind of addiction would have been approved for space travel, no matter how good you are at your job. But, this is fiction after all, and the rest of the tale was wickedly good. 

 

I have read several of Joe Hart's books, and this one is definitely at the top of my list.

5 stars and definitely recommended!

The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 - Christopher Clark
Winds of Salem - Melissa de la Cruz
One in a Million - Jill Shalvis
Wishing Lake (A Finding Home Novel) - Regina Hart
When Summer Comes - Brenda Novak

Spent the day after Memorial Day at the doctor's, as my son came down with Strep Throat (must be his yearly need for amoxicillian, lol). Counting down to summer vacation (son has 8.5 days left and daughter has 4 days) and the reading for our library's Summer Reading Program started today. I wish I could read faster, but my seasonal allergies are a doozy this year and I am either in a sneezing fit, sinus pain, or blacked out due to allergy medications. 

 

I ended up finishing the Ann Rule book yesterday; luckily, I picked up the last book in the Beauchamp Family series, so I am reading Winds of Salem first. I am also going to buckle down and read The Sleepwalkers, even if it is just 50 pages at a time every day. For next week, I plan on reading One in a Million (last book in the last trilogy that forms the Lucky Harbor series), When Summer Comes (third book in the Whiskey Creek series) and Wishing Lake (third book in the Finding Home series).

 

Happy June and the beginnings of summer (which means daylight from 4 am to 11 pm here in England) or winter depending on which side of the equator you live on.
