1. Who Rescued Who-Victoria Schade
Elizabeth loses her high-powered job but discovers family and gains a dog and a new career and life in the English countryside.
2. The Big Finish-Brooke Fossey
Duffy Sinclair lives in an assisted living facility. Life is predictable. Until his roommate’s granddaughter crawls in through their bedroom window one night and everyone’s lives change.
3. Separation Anxiety-Laura Zigman
A once successful author learns to deal with her own feelings and her dysfunctional family. This book was listed as funny, but I only found it to be sad and painful. I finished it but wish I had stopped when I thought about it.
4. The Banty House-Carolyn Brown
Three senior ladies living in Rooster, Texas take in a teen expecting a baby. They develop friendships and become a family.
5. Howloween Murder-Laurien Berenson
Melanie Travis and her standard poodle Faith search for who has poisoned the Halloween treats, causing the murder to look like it was committed by their friend.
6. A Walk Along the Beach-Debbie Macomber
A book about the Lakey sisters, their family, and love interests. A bit heart wrenching for a Debbie Macomber novel, but a good read.
7. The Geometry of Holding Hands-Alexander McCall Smith
Read about 100 pages and decided to give it up. Found myself wondering what I would read next every time I picked it up. Just not in the mood for it.
Several of these books were excellent but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be Who Rescued Who. It made me wish that I lived in the English countryside.
