Preview: The Bridge ~ Karen Kingsbury

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Book Blurb: Molly Allen lives alone in Portland, but she left her heart back in Tennessee with a man she walked away from five years ago. They had a rare sort of love she hasn’t found since. Ryan Kelly lives in Nashville after a broken engagement and several years on the road touring with a country music duo. He can still hear Molly’s voice encouraging him to follow his dreams; Molly, whose memory stays with him. At least he can visit The Bridge—the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin—and remember the hours he and Molly once spent there. For thirty years, Charlie and Donna Barton have run The Bridge, providing the people of middle Tennessee with coffee, conversation, and shelves of good books—even through dismal book sales and the rise of digital books. Then in May, the hundred-year flood swept through Franklin and destroyed nearly every book in the store. Now the bank is pulling the lease on The Bridge. Despondent and without answers, Charlie considers the unthinkable. Then tragedy strikes, and suddenly, everything changes. In the face of desperate brokenness and lost opportunities, could the miracle of a second chance actually unfold? The Bridge is a love story set against the struggle of the American bookstore, a love story you will never forget. My Thoughts: My copy from Howard books has not arrived yet so I haven't had a chance to read it. Once I receive it I will post a full review. Enjoy the preview.

A Ghost of Christmas Present - Preview

Book Blurb:

 It’s the fourth Wednesday of November, and Patrick Guthrie is giving thanks. He’s giving thanks that his eight-year-old son, Braden, will finally have a procedure on his heart that will cure him of the same life-threatening condition that took Patrick’s wife several years earlier. But when Patrick suddenly loses his job teaching drama at a New York City high school, his already desperate financial situation becomes dire. Rebecca Brody, a social worker, shows up at his door with a judge’s order for him to appear before the city’s family court to determine if Patrick is financially fit, and Patrick realizes he is in danger of losing his son. Patrick knows that he must somehow make it through the holiday season to a new job waiting for him in the new year. He also knows that Ted Cake, his former father-in-law, blames Patrick so much for the death of his daughter that he, a rich and disagreeable man, is the one pushing the city to call the custody hearing and give the boy over to him. Now Patrick has only three weeks before Christmas to somehow make enough money to pay his bills, present himself to the family court as a fit father, and keep Braden in his life.

My Thoughts: I just received this book so I wasn't able to review it in time. I will post my review once I read it.

Magic Mike . . . Reviewed

My husband and I talked about this and we agreed that I could watch it, so last Thursday night there was nothing on so I ordered it from DTV, I couldn't get past 30 minutes if that!
I was disgusted with both Channing Tatum and Matthew Mcconaughey. These two men are not only gorgeous men, they have both acted in great movies, that have made them famous. In Magic Mike, they used the F word every other word and it was ridiculous.
Matthew has been in great movies like A Time to Kill, Lincoln Lawyer, and How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days, he didn't need to lower himself to make this movie.
Channing blew onto the screen in Step Up, yet showed his softer side in Dear John, and the Vow.
While the ladies will of course cheer with the dancing . . . the language is just ridiculous.

I can't even recommend this!
