As I've said in a previous post, Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, and this was a great little read by her. I recommend this book for any bride-to-be, bride wannabe, or anyone with a romantic streak. The series centers around four women who are best friends and business partners, and they run a wedding planning business called Vows. Each book centers on one of the four women, and each finds her perfect man. "Vision in White" features McKenzie Elliott who meets Carter McGuire, an English teacher who has had a crush on Mac for years. They fall in love, but Mac nearly blows it because of her fear of commitment due to the actions of her dysfunctional parents. By the way, her mother is a real piece of work. The character of Linda Elliott will have you shaking your head and wanting to pull your hair out. I, as the reader, could feel Mac's frustration with her mother. Anyway, Nora Roberts's wit and humor shine in this book along with her flair for vivid descriptions and lovely romance.
Now, on to "Before I Go To Sleep." Here is the descripton from Amazon.com's website:
Every day Christine wakes up not knowing where she is. Her memories disappear every time she falls asleep. Her husband, Ben, is a stranger to her, and he's obligated to explain their life together on a daily basis--all the result of a mysterious accident that made Christine an amnesiac. With the encouragement of her doctor, Christine starts a journal to help jog her memory every day. One morning, she opens it and sees that she's written three unexpected and terrifying words: "Don't trust Ben." Suddenly everything her husband has told her falls under suspicion. What kind of accident caused her condition? Who can she trust? Why is Ben lying to her?
Being the Audible.com junkie that I am, I snapped it up and stuck it on my Ipod and will be starting that this afternoon.
Speaking of Audible.com, you can now link your account with your Amazon.com account. You still have access to your library and credits, and the site still works the same. Very cool if you do a lot of shopping in both venues.
Still loving my Kindle, by the way. Also loving the Kindle app for my Ipad 2. In the future, I'll probably do a post on my reading expereinces with both devices. They're very different and both have their pros and cons.
If anyone has favorite books they'd like to share with me, feel free to leave a comment with your recommendations. I like most anything fictionwise and some nonfiction, mostly biographies.
Off to indulge in my new find. Have a great weekend, everyone, and happy reading.
