It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

A month-long posting challenge that showcases authors and their works. We start on June 1 and post daily (except Sundays), with each day having a letter of the alphabet. The point of this:

E? Kathleen Eagle comes to mind, let's see who else is in my LibraryThing library...

The Christmas List
by Richard Paul Evans, website

James Kier looked back and forth between the newspaper headline and the photograph of himself, not sure if he should laugh or call his attorney. It was the same photograph the Tribune had used a couple of years earlier when they featured him on the front page of the business section. While the photograph was the same, the headline could not have been more different. Not many people get to read their own obituary.

Local real estate mogul dies in automobile crash

Utah real estate develop James Kier was pronounced dead after his car collided with a concrete pylon on southbound I-80. Authorities believe Kier may have had a heart attack prior to swerving off the road.

Kier put the paper down. He had no idea what the article was about to set in motion.



Mistletoe Bay
by Marcia Evanick, info at Fantastic Fiction

Nestled beside the coastal town of Misty Harbor, Maine, lies the picturesque village of Mistletoe Bay. There, overlooking the clear blue sea, is a charming old house that's the perfect place to gather for the holidays and give thanks for family, good friends, and bright new beginnings... When Cooper Armstrong left California to return to Maine, he also left a cheating ex and all his plans for settling down. Now Coop concentrates on taking care of his ailing father and learning his route as the area's new UPS man. It's not just Coop's parents who need assistance-Jenni Wright, whose blossoming new business has him making daily deliveries to her property, could clearly use some help. With three young sons, her mother-in-law, and a teenage niece all sharing a rickety house that seems to be held together with duct tape, Jenni has her hands full. To Jenni, Coop is their UPS guy, handyman, and her boys' guardian angel all in one gorgeous package. She's sure he'd run a mile before getting involved in the chaos of her life. But as Thanksgiving gives way to Christmas, the lovely, resilient Jenni turns Coop's expectations of a cold, lonely winter upside-down, revealing the promise of warmth, love, and a lifetime of happy memories.

Scones and Sensibility
by Lindsay Eland, website

Twelve-year-old Polly Madassa is convinced she was born for a more romantic age. A time when Elizabeth Bennet walked along the stone halls of Pemberley, arm in arm with her one true love, Mr. Darcy. A time with Anne Shirley gazed out at the wild seas off Prince Edward Island with her bosom friend, Diana, beside her. A time when a distinguished gentleman called upon a lady of quality, and true love was born in the locked eyes of two young lovers.

But alas…Polly was born in twenty-first century New Jersey.

This however, does not hinder our young heroine from finding romance wherever she can conjure it up. So while Polly is burdened with the summer job of delivering baked goods from her parents’ bakery to the people in her small beach town (how delightfully quaint!), she finds a way to force…um…encourage romance to blossom. Indeed, Polly is determined to bring lovers, young and old, together…whether they want to be or not.
