All, TBR Pile

My TBR Pile – Week of 9/28/15

Believe it or not I did really well with my TBR pile last week. I read 3 of the 4 books I had listed. This week, I’m sharing 4 books that I hope to read this week.


1. Betsy St. Amant ​All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes
I absolutely LOVE this cover.​ A trip to my local library landed this book in my bag and on my TBR pile.

Here’s a snippet from the blurb: “Kat Varland has had enough of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.At twenty-six years old, Kat is still living in the shadows of her family in Bayou Bend, Louisiana. Still working shifts at her Aunt Maggie’s bakery. Still wondering what to do with her passion for baking and her business degree. And still single.But when Lucas Brannen, Kat’s best friend, signs her up for a reality TV bake-off on Cupcake Combat, everything Kat ever wanted is suddenly dangled in front of her: creative license as a baker, recognition as a visionary . . . and a job at a famous bakery in New York.”

2. Nicole Deese’s ​All She Wanted
​This is the second book in the Letting Go series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one so I grabbed the chance to read book two.

Here’s a snippet from the blurb: “Choices.
They determine how we live, who we are, and what we want.
Some choices are made for us. Others we must make for ourselves.
Charlie Lexington is a living consequence of both.
Everything about the feisty redhead represents a second chance—even her name. Though she was rescued at the age of five, her past is a lingering reminder of what she longs for most.
And the one thing she has spent a lifetime trying to find.”

3. Kristi Ann Hunter’s ​A Lady of Esteem
​This will be my first read of Ms. Hunter’s but I’m looking forward to it. I am trying to read more historical fiction so I chose her because I love the cover! (What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good cover).

Here’s a snippet from the blurb: “Miss Amelia Stalwood may live in London at her absent guardian’s townhouse, but she’s never actually met any nobility, and instead of aristocrats, her closest friends are servants. Quite by happenstance, she’s introduced to the Hawthorne family and their close family friend, Anthony, the reformed marquis of Raeburn. They welcome her into their world, but just as she’s beginning to gain some confidence and even suspect she may have caught Anthony’s eye, she’s blindsided by an unexpected twist in her situation accompanied by nasty rumors.”

4. Pat Simmons’ ​Guilty of Love
​I picked this up free on Kindle after hearing good things about the author. I’m looking forward in hopes I have a new favorite to add to my list.

Here’s a portion of the blurb: “When do you know the most important decision of your life is the right one?
Reaping the seeds from what she’s sown; Cheney Reynolds moves into a historic neighborhood in Ferguson, Missouri, and becomes a reclusive.
Her first neighbor, the incomparable Mrs. Beatrice Tilley Beacon aka Grandma BB, is an opinionated childless widow. Grandma BB is a self-proclaimed expert on topics Cheney isn’t seeking advice—everything from landscaping to hip-hop dancing to romance.”
