The picture (from Pixabay) above has lots of the fruits you can find in my refrigerator right now!! I love apricots, manderin oranges, strawberries, blueberries and I simply can not resist the sweet taste of red raspberries!! Let's not forget greem seedless grapes!! An occasional kiwi will join all the others. Because I am single I end up buying them individually--I even buy mixed fruit already cut up. Oh I love Honeydew and Cantelope as long as they are ripe!!

I could make fruit baskets as gifts--there are lots of lovely baskets out there. How about this one-- Peohud Wicker Picnic Basket with Double Folding Handles

Book Review-The Last Lady of Thornhill Manor-Patricia Haverton



Lady Amalia Gallagher is under a lot of pressure to get married. Her father is ill and he is worried about her future--all she is worried about is him!! She simply refuses to marry just anyone--luckily her father is in agreement with that decision. Her brother has recently died. He had a couple of friends who all used to hang out and have fun together--Amalia used to join them. One of those friends is totally in love with her--but thinks she thinks of him as only a true and trusted friend.

Her cousin, Patrick, brings one of his friends to dinner. This guy will not take no for an answer and as you will read ultimately goes to extraordinary lengths to get her to marry him. Luckily for Amelia she is strong willed and also knows that Reginald will always be there to protect her. Meanwhile her Father keeps having relapses--the physicians can not figure out what is wrong.

There is a shocker at the end when all is revealed---but also a very happy ending!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Lady Amalia Gallagher, daughter of the Duke of Thornhill, is terrified.

Having already lost her only brother to illness, and with her ailing father knocking on death’s door, she finds herself under tremendous pressure to find a suitable husband. When a new suitor appears asking for her hand in marriage, she realizes that as her time runs out, so do her choices.

Reginald Davidson, Marquess of Lyonhall, has made a vow to protect Amalia at all costs, even if it means never confessing his true feelings for her.

But bad things come in threes. As her father’s health grows worse by the second, Reginald suddenly goes missing, and in the manor's study, there’s a pistol with her name on it…

About the Author: (from Amazon)


Born the oldest of three children, Patricia Haverton grew up believing that she'd follow in her father's footsteps and pursue a career in science. However, her worldview changed when she decided to explore her British mother's roots. The trip to her ancestral lands solidified her conviction that she had found her true calling in the romanticism of the Era of Kings and Queens.

A hopeless romantic and a firm believer in the idea of soulmates, Patricia changed the course of her life and decided to get her degree in Creative Writing and Psychology. As she jokingly says ever so often, "she lives in the past now, where love shows the way and Dukes save the day!"

When she's not weaving tales of love that prevails, Patricia enjoys spending time with her husband, roaming the British countryside, where they have been living in for the past decade.

Now would be the time to let yourself go and experience the true magic of the Regency Era! Let your imagination run wild, live amazing adventures through the eyes of brave heroes! Like the legendary wise wizard, Patricia will be your guide!

Book Review-The Gift-A Novella-Lolli Powell

Tuesday, August 9, 2022



What a wonderful story that has such a happy ending!! Life can be strange and what happened to Elizabeth Mitchell was really strange--she told the tale to her daughter, son and grandchildren to give them hope that sometimes things turn out okay and that there really are such things as guardian angels!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The greatest gifts of all are love and hope.

Elizabeth Mitchell is spending Christmas with her children and grandchildren, but the recent death of Elizabeth’s ailing husband and the absence of her son-in-law, missing in Afghanistan, hang like a shroud over the family gathering. Then Elizabeth begins to tell the story of the miracle that happened to her one Christmas when she was young and wanted to die, and the shroud begins to lift.
