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?

Harriet Hensley usually enjoys the work that comes with being an attorney for Bourbon Springs’ most important business, Old Garnet Bourbon Distillery. But when the owners ask her to work on a crucial project, Harriet is far from excited. 
It's because of the guy with whom she’s going to have to work.
Goose Davenport, the owners' cousin and an important employee at Old Garnet, has been known for years as the local hothead. And a few years earlier, Harriet, the local Little-Miss-Perfect, had a secret taste of that wild side of the man—and found she liked it quite a bit. But despite their mutual attraction, fate denied them the chance to see what happened next, and they kept the fact of their encounter—and feelings—to themselves.
Yet working together causes long-hidden emotions to boil to the surface. He’s enchanted by the woman he never thought he’d attain, and she’s delighted to discover Goose’s softer side—as well as his deep knowledge and love of Old Garnet.
Yet within that knowledge is buried a deep vein of resentment that stretches back nearly a hundred years, far back into the history of the brand, the family, and the bourbon industry. This lingering bitterness threatens not only Harriet and Goose’s new love, but Old Garnet and Bourbon Springs itself.

Cedar and Cinnamon is the fifth book in the Bourbon Springs Series.

I love books that are second chance love stories. The characters, Harriet and Goose, were very likeable. I loved the peek at the inside workings of a distillery. Though I haven't read the other books in this series, I now have added them to my TBR pile.

Jennifer Bramseth is the author of the Bourbon Springs Series, a nine-book contemporary romance/saga series set in the Land of Bourbon and Bluegrass. She is an attorney, a Kentucky native, and lifelong resident who lives next to a horse farm and within minutes of several bourbon distilleries.
Her new series, Bourbonland, kicked off with SINGLE BARREL, a novella, released on December 13, 2016, with books to follow in 2017.
