I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: Love Lettering & The Lookalike

We may have been given complimentary copies of one or more of the books mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Books: Love Lettering and The Lookalike

See the source image

Mom - Today I am recommending two books. The first book I am recommending is Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn. Meg is good at picking up signs and she often hides messages in the custom lettered designs she prepares in her job. When she hides the word "mistake" in Reid's wedding invitations, he tracks her down to find out how she knew his marriage wasn't going to work out. She convinces him to go out looking for signs with her, and they begin to develop a friendship and maybe even more. However, there are still things about Reid that Meg doesn't know. Things that could destroy both their lives. This is a charming and delightful story. The relationship between Meg and Reid is so sweet and touching. It is so believable the way their relationship slowly builds. It is much more realistic than the love at first sight or hate at first site that happens so often in fiction, but less often in real life. These characters will stay in your heart even after you have finished reading this book.

Mom - The second book I am recommending is The Look-Alike by Erica Spindler. Coming home from her college library one night, Sienna discovered a murdered girl dressed in the exact same coat she was wearing. Shortly after she was sent to London allegedly to get away from her  mentally ill mother's delusions.Years later, Sienna returns home, she finds that she may have been the intended murder victim and her life may still be in danger. This hair-raising book has a lot of twists and turns. Every time, you think you've figured out exactly what is going on, it takes a spin and veers off in another direction. Although the ending is not a complete surprise, it is not completely predictable either. There are a lot of different ways the story could go, and you will not be sure exactly which path it will take until you get there.

And that's Mom's view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
