Free Book Friday: The Seer Has Spoken


Are these icicles cool or what?

According to Punxsutawney Phil, who didn’t see his shadow today, spring is right around the corner! Unfortunately, word is that PP is only right 39 percent of the time….. I should probably leave my trowel in the shed for awhile longer….

It’s supposed to snow all weekend here. I’m putting chili in the crockpot and I’ve got corn muffins to go with. I’m going to snuggle up in front of the fire with my laptop and my favorite judge shows and dream of spring. It’s good reading time, too. I’ve been reading a January Silhouette Romantic Suspense, High Risk Affair, by RaeAnne Thayne (one of my favorite authors). And I’ve got Gone by Lisa Gardner next in my to-be-read pile. What are you reading? Anything good? Share, and be in the running for this weekend’s Free Book Friday autographed book pick!

    I saw PP on TV this morning. 😯 I can’t believe he didn’t see his shadow. I thought for sure he would. We got snow today and it’s supposed to turn to rain and then snow again. It’s beautiful outside! :weather:

    I’m reading JINXED by Jill Shalvis, Jacquie D’Alessandro and Crystal Green. :thumbsup:

    I am reading Inferno by Karen Harper and have Bad Attitude by Sherrilyn Kenyon waiting. Hey,all the groundhogs say the same thing this year, an early spring.:shimmy: Could all of them be wrong? I hope not cause I am tired of this cold weather.:cold: It snowed here yesterday and it’s melting a little today. Have a warm and safe week-end and hugs to all.:wave:

  4. Angie T says:

    I just finished reading Deborah Smith’s “Crossroads Cafe”…awesome book, but I love everything she writes. This one is set in the NC mountains. You really need to read it.

    I am re-reading Jennifer Crusie’s “Bet Me” right now. Then Jo Leigh’s Relentless or
    maybe Roxanne St. Clair’s “Kill Me Twice”. Decisions, decisions!

    Sure hope Phil is right – going to be 6 as our high next week.

  26. Jessica Raymond says:

    At the moment I’m reading Daphne du Maurier’s “The House on the Strand”. I only read “Rebecca” for the first time last summer and I loved it. I’m not sure I like “THOTS” as much, but it’s still intriguing.
