Summer Pasta, Family Time & Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf

Thanks to Harlequin for sponsoring today’s book recommendation and giveaway. It’s Recipe & A Book Recommendation and today we have a delicious summer pasta salad and Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf. Little Mercies released on June 24, 2014. It is a powerful, riveting read and I will share my thoughts with you in October. It reminds us to value the ones we hold dear and the importance of “family time.” When my children were small we began a tradition on Friday evenings that we all have fond memories of. Today I will share ours with you, and maybe you can create nights like this with your family.

Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp

Through His Eyes by Deborah Camp was a fun paranormal murder mystery with a side dish of romance.

Fast paced with a snarky protagonist and drop dead gorgeous television psychic I quickly consumed Through His Eyes.

Caffeinated Confession -Do we demand more from our books than reality?
