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?

The heartbreak of their childhood drove the Morgan brothers far from their family's California ranch—and one another. But as they face the wounds of the past, each feels the land calling him home . . .
Blue Morgan never thought he'd crave long days on horseback, working the cattle ranch where he grew up. But after a decade of getting shouted and shot at in the Marines, fresh air and hard work are just what he needs to settle his restless energy. Except no matter how hard he tries to focus, his mind wanders to the pretty, prickly new veterinarian instead.
There's no denying the spark between Jenna McDonald and Blue. But with her job at risk and her own family's expectations to wrangle, Jenna isn't looking for another sparring partner. Blue needs her expertise on horses. And if she can help solve his mother's disappearance, she's willing to pitch in. But she'll leave his ideas about how love should be scheduled to him. Jenna is tired of being told what she can't have—and ready to reach for what she wants . . .

“If you love cowboys—and who doesn't—you'll love the Morgans!” —Cora Seton, New York Times bestselling author on The Reluctant Cowboy

Another winning cowboy read for these cold winter nights. I love me some hot sexy cowboy reads! Toss in a bit of a mystery and you've got that perfect read for a weekend piled up next to the woodstove.  The characters in this story were right on the spot, Blue or BB (won't tell you what the second B is for) and Jenna set off sparks right from the beginning. There is a big family of Morgans (another thing I love in these stories) from Grandma Ruth to the hired help. 
Jenna's family pops in and out of the story and it's so easy to see that though they love her unconditionally, their ability to show that love in a helpful manner is so opposite from the Morgans. It's easy and sad to see what has caused her to be a bit standoffish.
I love seeing that Blue, a cowboy through and through, has lived a lot of his maturing years as a Marine. It's interesting seeing him adjust back into the mainstream of life as a cowboy and brother.  
Tickled pink to see book three "The Last Good Cowboy" is due out late April but puzzled as there is one brother unaccounted for. Hopefully, there will be at least one more book to give us closure on this series.
**Got a note from Ms Pearce who let me know she had just finished HW's book and it would be available late in 2017. Yeah! I love knowing that he's going to get his book even if I haven't met him yet.😂
