I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Thoughts on...The Unlikely Wife by Debra Ullrick

My first impressions are here

Pleasant words, "courting my wife."

Painful words, "I can't do this. I'm leaving."

Reading a book that makes me cry is not a good idea when I have a cold. Plus, I can't tell you it's a "four hankie" book ;-)

I am so glad that all the Harlequin books I've read have been Happy-Ever-After books instead of Happy-for-Now books. I don't think I would have made it through those painful words. Then the best-friend (the letter writer) comes to visit? Yikes!

Final Grade? C+ (eventually, I'll hand it off but I'm hoping there are related books)

Product Description:
The arrival of Michael Bowen's bride, married sight unseen by proxy, sends the rancher reeling. With her trousers, cowboy hat and rifle, she looks like a female outlaw—not the genteel lady he corresponded with for months. He's been hoodwinked into marriage with the wrong woman!

Selina Farleigh Bowen loved Michael's letters, even if she couldn't read them herself. A friend read them to her, and wrote her replies—but apparently that "friend" left things out, like Michael's dream of a wife who was nothing like her. Selina won't change who she is, not even for the man she loves. Yet time might show Michael the true value of his unlikely wife.
