I'm a mom and work full-time. How I find time to read I'm not sure but I do. I have been reading ever since I can remember. I always find that if I'm not reading something, I feel empty. I recently bought an eReader so that I can ALWAYS have my library with me :-) Since I have been introduced to a number of different books since I bought my eReader, I thought it made sense to start a blog to share not only my love for reading with others, but also new and interesting reading material.

When I first started reading Hacienda Moon, I wasn't sure if I would be able to finish it. As a mom of a child Breena's age, I threw myself into the prologue imagining the emotions of Tandie. Once I held my emotions under control, I was able to continue reading this story and I am so glad I did. The story behind Chelby House and Eric's family; Eric and Tandie's love story and all that was unveiled throughout the book was both intriguing and enthralling. The book was a definite page turner and I am awaiting the second in the series.
