Goodness me, Mondays roll around very quickly at the moment, don’t they? It’s been another busy week for me and I’ve been indulging in some book purchases to aid in my rest and relaxation (or that’s what I tell myself anyway)!
I had recently ordered some books I wanted but couldn’t find in any stores. I’m really happy to see these books because I’ve been looking for each one of them for at least a year! None as available to me as eBooks either. They are Peyton Place by Grace Metalious, Monday Mornings by Sanjay Gupta and The Red Leather Diary by Lily Koppel. They involve town scandal, secret lives of surgeons and the history of a discarded diary in New York respectively.
I also had a lovely parcel arrive from Harlequin Australia, containing two books – Too Hot to Handle by Victoria Dahl (a light romance, I really enjoyed Close Enough to Touch) and What Tears Us Apart by Deborah Cloyed about an heiress who volunteers in Kenya with unexpected results.
