Upcoming Books: The Cottage n Juniper Ridge : Next installment in Icicle Falls Series

Release date: Feb 25,2014
How to Change Your Life… 
Can a book change your life? Yes, when it's Simplicity, Muriel Sterling's guide to plain living. In fact, it inspires Jen Heath to leave her stressful, overcommitted life in Seattle and move to Icicle Falls, where she rents a lovely little cottage on Juniper Ridge. And where she can enjoy simple pleasures—like joining the local book club—and complicated ones, like falling in love with her sexy landlord, Garrett Armstrong. 
Her sister Toni is ready for a change, too. She's got a teenage daughter who's constantly texting her friends, a husband who's more involved with his computer than he is with her, and a son who's consumed by video games. Toni wants her family to grow closer—to return to a simpler way of life. 
Other women in town, like Stacy Thomas, are also inspired to unload their excess stuff and some of the extra responsibilities they've taken on. 
But as they all discover, sometimes life simply happens. It doesn't always happen simply!

New to my bookshelf : More Oldies

I found these oldies to add to my book shelf
Beautiful Nicole Duchard was stunned when imperial envoy Dimitri Denisov whisked her from her humble Boston home to establish her as Princess Natasha Steanova. It didn't take long for Dimitri to discover in the eyes of this Yankee Princess a wild spirit to match his own, and in the loveliness of her body a fire that betrayed her passion. But as a long-lost, secret royal love child, Nicole's lineage threatened the throne of Catherine the Great and she became victim to rapacious palace intrigues. 

Forced to suffer the degradations and ravages of an auction-block marriage... a bloody serf uprising...a cruel Siberian exile, she followed her still tender heart along a treacherous path to freedom and fulfillment -- and into the arms of the one audacious gentleman who intoxicated her with love's irresistible promise...
This is Liliane -- a beautiful woman swept by the storms of history from the embattled France of Napoleon to Virginia where violence simmered beneath the surface of slavery-dependent plantation life.
Warm, passionate -- a woman alone -- she sought refuge, but found instead turmoil, with two handsome, powerful brothers vying for her. One tantalized her with desire but would not marry her. The other proposed marriage, but concealed a dark secret that tinged his love with terror.
As a fourteen-year-old Catherine de Medici rode into France. Behind her and before her rode the nobility of Italy. She was to marry Henry of Orleans, second son of the King.
Amid the glittering fetes, masques, jousts and banquets of the immoral court in 16th century Europe, the reluctant bride became a passionate but unwanted wife.
Angry, humiliated and tortured by jealousy as she secretly spied on Henry's lovemaking, Catherine began to plan her revenge.

Rediscovering V.C.Andrews

Last night on Skype my younger Brother an I were discussing our passion for V.C. Andrews books.
Since Andrews death the books have just not been the same but every once in awhile you find one or two that grab your interest.  I still find my self collecting them in hope to one day have them all.  If i am at a yard sale or thrift store these are the books I always grab when I see them.
During our discussion my brother and I discovered that we both own  at 2 books from the same series . The series being  the Gemini Series I own the first and the third book he had the first and the second.
He sent me the E book of the second  and he  purchased the E book  of the third book. We have decided to read this series together and compare notes and then write a review and share each other's review on each other's blog. This is a fun idea and in away it is sort of like small book club . I am very excited to get back in to the world of V.C. Andrews  and hopefully tackle these books I have been collecting over the years and finish some of the newer series.  The first book we are reading together is  
We hope to be done with this book by the end of the month  if not sooner and then post  our reviews.
