The dry summer weather continues - I think this is our driest summer since early 1900's.  Not good for the garden!

    1. Just a little ahead Martha. Loved this one because it took Roarke's story a little further - I got all weepy!!

  7. You could have done with a little of that recent rain we got in QLD. Well done on the step goals, 99% is awesome!

    And you are killing it with reading and reviewing ... I'm glad to hear you liked the Jennifer Ashley one better, 2nd time around. Can you get straight on to the 2nd one? lol if you enjoy it, it'll be just the kick I need to pick it up ;) hope you enjoy The Road to Hope, it wasn't my favourite of hers but I still really liked it. Have a great week and happy reading :)

    1. Yes heard about the QLD rain. We have had rain in NZ in last couple days and completely passed my region by. Yes should read the 2nd Jennifer Ashley now while I am in the frame of mind! I think its at the library actually. The Road to Hope - yes only 45% through it and have to say same as you. Just hasn't grabbed me like Jilted did.

  8. I read Baltimore Blues a while ago and have every intention of going back and catching up on that series, too! Just haven't gotten around to it. I did enjoy it though! I also just finished reading The Girls of Mischief Bay - I enjoyed it - thought it was a good 1st book to a new series and am curious to see what direction this series will take. I have One Wish and First Time in Forever in my stacks to read soon. I love that we have similar reading tastes!!!

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

  12. Looks like you had a great exercise week! I've been wanting to read Nora Robert's The Witness for a long time, but haven't taken the time. I'm glad you enjoyed the two of her's you mentioned. I will look forward to your reviews.

    1. The Witness I did enjoy too Pat. I listened to the audio which was good and I usually find the audio sends the book to a higher level if the narration is good.

  15. We've had a couple of days of drizzling rain due to the cyclone that passed over QLD but it's the humidity that is killing me!
