My Reads in 2015

Year Round Up. What does that mean? Well, I want share some awesome authors I have found this year. There are links to my blog posts. A video below to give even more info. If you want to really know why I loved any of these books, with a chance of revealing way too many details ...I would love to do that? These authors are in no particular order. Just men 1st & then ladies at the end. I figure ladies always go 1st.

Robert Dugoni - "Tracy Crosswhite Series", "In the Clearing" (The Tracy Crosswhite Series) will be coming out May 17th, 2016 ...I have already preordered it & I am super excited. OH YEAH!

The Mistletoe Promise by: Richard Paul Evans

"The Mistletoe Promise" by: Richard Paul Evans
Amazon says: "Elise Dutton dreads the arrival of another holiday season. Three years earlier, her husband cheated on her with her best friend, resulting in a bitter divorce that left her alone, broken, and distrustful.
Then, one November day, a stranger approaches Elise in the mall food court. Though she recognizes the man from her building, Elise has never formally met him. Tired of spending the holidays alone, the man offers her a proposition. For the next eight weeks—until the evening of December 24—he suggests that they pretend to be a couple. He draws up a contract with four rules:

1. No deep, probing personal questions
2. No drama
3. No telling anyone the truth about the relationship 
4. The contract is void on Christmas Day

The lonely Elise surprises herself by agreeing to the idea. As the charade progresses, the safety of her fake relationship begins to mend her badly broken heart. But just as she begins to find joy again…

The Mistletoe Inn by: Richard Paul Evans

"The Mistletoe Inn" by: Richard Paul Evan "Amazon" says: "At thirty-two Kimberly Rossi, a finance officer at a Lexus car dealership, has had her heart broken more times than she wants to remember. With two failed engagements, a divorce and again alone with no prospects, she hardly seems the type to dream of being a published romance author. Dreading another holiday alone, she signs up for The Mistletoe Retreat, a nine-day writing retreat in Burlington, VT. Deep inside Kimberly knows she’s at a junction in her life and it’s time to either fulfill her dream or let it go. The other reason she decides to attend the conference is because famed romance writer, H.T. Cowell, once the best selling romance writer in America, and the author whose books instilled in her the desire to be a writer, will be speaking in public for the first time in more than a decade.
In one of her breakout sessions Kimberly meets another aspiring writer, and one of the few men at the conferenc…

I have always been the one to pick our scents. I go 2 Sephora &/or Ulta, just depends? I get to sniffing & usually come out with one for me & one for him. There are always great sales. I am such a fan of Marc Jacobs. If you enjoy clean, fresh & a hint of floral his scents are for you. Rosabotanica is not one I would normally go for, that is why I LOVE IT, it is spicy, sexy & perfect to add to my perfume collection. I think the Burberry is classic, very lady like, another one that is not my normal scent, loving it!!!
In the future I know that anything John Varvatos will probably be perfect for my man. If you like a scent that i…
