Leave The Lights On

But it’s true too. ūüėČ I kept thinking how sweet this romance was and then there were moments when I’d sigh and want to hug the main characters hurts away.

Interview with Karen Stivali

Holding OnI am having so much fun in my own little teeny corner of the web <g> I have been introduced to some really good books that I might otherwise have missed and then I can spaz out about them here in the comfort of my own virtual living room and chat about one of my favorite things in the world. Good Books!

Karen Stivali approached me in September and told me about Holding On and it’s¬†book birthday November 25th¬†and asked if I would like to read it. The synopsis grabbed me and I am delighted to say I loved this story! I might not have picked it up on my own and that would have been a shame. Karen is on my radar now ūüėõ And I’ll be watching for what she does next.
