Too Close To Home

Spent  Mother's Day reading a new novel called "Too Close To Home" by Lynette Eason.  I woke up rather sore from yesterday's adventure, so I pampered myself most of the day by sitting in my favorite chair with my new book.  Loved it!  If you enjoy suspense filled thrillers, this is a wonderful book.  What makes it even more enjoyable is that it is Christian fiction and so there was not one foul word or scene that left nothing to the imagination! The two books I previously tried reading, were both put down at the halfway point or sooner with, "Why am I reading this?".  It's not that I live in a bubble, but seriously, how many people use the "f" word or "gd" throughout their everyday conversations...get a better vocabulary!  Back to the book though, there was just enough of the romance angle to make you go "ahh..." at the end, but not enough to say, "Really, seriously now."  There's a serial killer on the loose, and as the title describes, they're hitting a little "too close to home".  Needless to say, I'll have the next one as soon as it's October debut gets here!

I have to say though, this morning when I walked into the kitchen, looked out my back window, an immediate smile took over...all my lovely little succulents were right there in plain view!  It was definitely worth the discomfort.


  1. Oh, I surely know what you are saying about seeing your wall out the window! I see my food garden out my kitchen window all day long and it brings me so much happiness! I can see my sux out in the screenroom, buit it needs rearranging and cleaning! I need to get it done before it is absolutely TOO HOT here! I am so happy you can see your wall and have all that happiness...small things make huge differences!!!

    I love Christian fiction. It is so nice to read without all that crap in there. You know I have had this FOOT on my mind, since I found this young womans blog (she has succulents also), and she got a tattoo on the top of her foot. It is awesome, and I have never been big on tattoos, but this one about brought tears to my eyes. If you want to check it out, go HERE, at Ali Rockwell's blog!

  2. I came back here and found my link to Ali Rockwells blog was broken. I think you found her though, since I see her in your blog list! Did you see the tattoo???
