Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Temptation under the mistletoe 
Specialist Juliet Turner flies halfway across the world to England with her young daughter, Bea, to perform lifesaving in utero surgery. But her first white Christmas is complicated by the feelings awakened by ob-gyn Dr. Charlie Warren! 

Juliet has protected her heart for years, but she soon finds there's so much more to this closed-off widower than meets the eye. Perhaps it's time for them both to let go of the past, surrender to their burning chemistry and make this a Christmas to remember!

Throw together a cute four year old, holidays, and a sad widower and you've hooked me. I've always loved the Mills & Boon format of Australia/UK romances and  WHITE CHRISTMAS FOR THE SINGLE MOM  is one of the best most recent Harlequin Medical Holiday reads I've enjoyed this year. Charlie is a sad stubborn OBGYN who gives Juliet a hard time with her more modern "ideas" of utero surgery. He thinks she's impulsive and as he believes his late wife's death was a result of impulsiveness, it takes a while for Juliet to convince him that the surgery was not a modern impulse but a well thought out method to save the quads. Both Juliet and Charlie are somewhat broken by past romances and Bea does a lot to help them open up to new possibilities. 
A quick read that I know you'll enjoy this holiday season.

Married to the man she met at eighteen, Susanne is the mother of two adult daughters, Orianthi and Tina. Her varied career titles have included dental nurse, personal assistant, contract manager and now Medical Romance author. The family also extends to a maltese shih-tzu, a poodle, three ducks and four hens. Susanne has always read romance novels and says, ‘I love a happy ever after so writing for Mills & Boon is a dream come true.’
