This summer I discovered a new to me author, Robyn Carr. My friend Brenda lent me the first book of the Virgin River series. It had the charm of Debbie Macomber books and Jan Karon books. I've spent the summer reading the entire Virgin River series, about 10 books. I've just started the second book in the Grace Valley series. Ms. Carr's books are a great summer read! Her books containe lots of characters. Characters who are forced to grow to achieve happiness.
In late July, DH and I made a long, quick road trip to Louisiana and back. The book that I brought with me to read in the car was not holding my attention. It was one that I had to read for my book club (Mennonite in a Little Black Dress). On one of our refueling for gas/bathroom breaks, I ran to the Walmart next door. I was frantic for something to help pass the endless hours in the car. I purchased Summer in Sonama by Robyn Carr. My problems were solved. I was totally immersed in the book and happily made it home.
Several bloggers are paying it forward and re-gifting books that they have won from other blogs. My problem is I haven't finished the books that I won. My solution is to share Summer in Sonoma. Leave a comment on the post for a chance to win. I'll pull a name next Wednesday, August 25th. I'd love if you left me a title of a book that you enjoyed in the comments. I'm always on the look-out for something good to read:)
