All, TBR Pile

My TBR Pile – 11/23/15

It’s Monday and for once, I don’t mind because it’s Thanksgiving week! Do you have any special plans? I’m hoping to be able to relax and read since I have no travel plans. So here’s what’s on my TBR pile for the week.

*Side not: I had someone state my other font color was too light. What do you think of this color choice? 


Jennifer Slattery’s ​Intertwined
​I won this book in a giveaway and I’m so excited because I’ve heard great things about it.

Check out the back cover blurb: “Abandoned by hubby for another woman, Tammy Kuhn, an organ procurement coordinator finds herself in an altercation with a doctor. Now she is fighting to keep her job and her sanity when one late night she encounters an old flame facing an unthinkable tragedy. Because they both find eternal purposes in every event and encounter, they soon discover their lives are intertwined but the ICU is no place for romance…or is it? Could this be where life begins again?”

You can follow Ms. Slattery on her ​Website and purchase the novel on   Amazon.​


Susie Finkbeiner’s A Cup of Dust
​Here’s another novel I’ve seen lauded over social media. So when I heard it was free, I couldn’t resist. (Have I mentioned I have this compulsion to buy copious amounts of books? I cannot wait for Christmas time.)

Here’s the back cover blurb: “Where you come from isn’t who you are. Ten-year-old Pearl Spence is a daydreamer, playing make-believe to ​escape life in Oklahoma’s Dust Bowl in 1935. The Spences have their share of misfortune, but as the sheriff’s family, they’ve got more than most in this dry, desolate place. They’re who the town turns to when there’s a crisis or a need–and during these desperate times, there are plenty of both, even if half the town stands empty as people have packed up and moved on.

Pearl is proud of her loving, strong family, though she often wearies of ​tracking down her mentally impaired older sister or wrestling with her grandmother’s unshakable belief in a God who Pearl just isn’t sure she likes. 

Then a mysterious man bent on revenge tramps into her town of Red River. Eddie is dangerous and he seems fixated on Pearl. When he reveals why he’s really there and shares a shocking secret involving the whole town, dust won’t be the only thing darkening Pearl’s world.​”

Jackie Zack’s A Chance Mistake
I tell you, social media is powerful. I can’t remember how many times I’ve seen this floating on Facebook. It’s been enough times that I figured I must read it. Because aren’t new finds wonderful?!​

Here’s the back cover blurb: “A Vacation Takes a Funny Turn –

​By the flip of a coin, famous novelist, Kory Slate travels to Wales intent on finding rest and relaxation. His latest best seller has left him freaked out, and he begins to suspect that he’s being followed. Is he the target of a nefarious scheme? Has his money-making imagination veered out of control?

​An array of Kory’s books in a Welsh bookstore window pulls him into the shop to browse. He is astonished to meet Dafina Perry, the living image of a female character in his last book. As his vacation progresses down its unusual track, he finds himself inexplicably and somewhat humorously entangled in her family drama.

Dafina, struggling with betrayal and potential loss, worries about the welfare of the handsome, brilliant novelist. Will helping him bring unexpected love and happiness to her life? Or will her good intentions invoke destruction for them both?”​

You can purchase the novel on Amazon.​​​
