Book Description
Publication Date: August 26, 2014
A sassy redhead with an axe to grind…

After catching her husband kissing another woman in the barn, Loretta Sullivan Bailey left Lonesome Canyon Ranch and swore she’d never come back. But when her daughter threatens to drop out of college to become a rancher’s wife, Loretta refuses to let her baby make the same mistake she did. She returns to the ranch, determined to get her daughter back in school by the summer’s end…and resolute on ignoring her feelings for her ex-husband.

A bullheaded but oh so sexy cowboy…

A cowboy from his hat to his boots, ruggedly handsome rancher Jackson Bailey is none too pleased that his feisty—and gorgeous—ex-wife has suddenly shown up seventeen years after their divorce. But despite all their fighting and fussing, the two stubborn former lovers soon discover that old flames burn the hottest. Can they finally put aside their differences and find happiness together…forever?

I WAS GIVEN A COPY OF THIS BOOK BY NETGALLEY FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.

This was a great fun read, with one sexy cowboy and a bull-headed woman. The characters and storyline was well-developed and had me laughing out loud in certain spots.  When Loretta’s daughter decided to not go back to college, but is staying  on the ranch that she loves  with her dad. Loretta heads off to Lonesome Canyon Ranch to try and talk her into going back. This is when the sparks start to fly between Jackson and Loretta. The more they are in each other’s company, the more they realize that they still love each other. LONG, HOT TEXAS SUMMER is a great read. CAROLYN BROWN  has another hit with this book. I recommend that you read it, and I give it 5/5stars.

BOOK REVIEW FOR “RIDING HOME” BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

Book Description

Perfect is good.

Imperfect is even better…

City-slicker lawyer Jeannette Trenton is about as welcome at the Last Chance Ranch as a rattlesnake at a square dance. She’s there to atone for one major mistake. But Jeannette’s pretty sure righting her big wrong does not include thinking lustful thoughts about the ranch’s new cowhand….

Zach Powell knows Jeannette’s type—a wound-up-tight perfectionist with one eye on her email at all times. Heck, that used to be him. She needs to shake it loose, face her imperfections and allow herself to make mistakes. There’s definitely no mistake about the wickedly sexy vibe between them. This gal is gonna have to “cowboy up”…or miss the ride of her life!

Vicki Lewis Thompson is a great writer and I always enjoy her books, but  RIDING HOME  did not keep my interest like the previous books. I still enjoyed it, but it took me a lot longer to finish. I seems like the writer is running out of ideas for this series.  Zach Powell has left Los Angeles for the quiet life. He had gotten tired of the jaded life and quite being a contract lawyer. He does not want to practice law again so he does not fall into bad habits again. When he meets Jeannette he feels that instant attraction with her, but will their relation go anywhere?   She is a lawyer and he does not want anything to do with being a lawyer. The characters are well-developed, so I give RIDING HOME 3/5 STARS. It just did not capture my attention like the others did.

CHARLIE HERE.

I have been having too much fun to write. Yesterday I chased off three cats who were in the backyard. That sure was fun watching them scatter. The squirrel has been pestering Cissy and me here lately. I went outside the other day to do my business and I was dive bombed by a crow and that blasted squirrel. I would have had both of them if I was not chained up, because I like to go exploring out of the yard. The squirrel likes to tease me by walking on the fence or hiding in the tree. If it would just stand still and let me play with it we would have so much fun. the squirrel always runs away.

Also when they let me back in the house they still will not share their food with me. Like the other day they had pizza and I wanted some and they would not let me have it. I begged and pleaded, and even tried talking earnestly with my master but she still would not let me have any. I also tried to see what she was drinking in her cup the other day and licked her straw and her sister caught me. They then started calling me a freak because I like to lick their straws. I have been having so much fun. I also was taken to the pet store to pick out some cookies, because we ran out. I don’t know who is eating them all but they have to quite. I have been terrorizing Cissy and it has been great. I constantly hide her toys and when she is not looking I steal her treats. Heh… Hehh.

Well it is time to go to bed and I just thought I would try to catch you up on some things. I will talk with you tomorrow. Charlie out.

GRANDMA IS BEING MOVED TO A FACILITY IN STANTON.

grandma

Today Grandma had a busy day. My Aunt made arrangements to have the lady who usually cuts my grandma’s hair to come to her room at the west campus in Midland. My Grandmother was so excited to get her hair cut. She is doing better and better every day, Now that she is out of that place she was at. II don’t know when, it could be tomorrow. She is being transferred to Stanton at a Rehabilitation facility there. She has been having more spasticity in her arm and leg. They have her on muscle relaxers so it won’t be so painful for her.

With all the setbacks that she has had,  infections, dehydration, pneumonia, and abuse, she has not had a lot of therapy on left her arm, and leg. Since she has been at the west campus, she has done a lot better. She has had the feeding tube removed from her stomach, and is eating solid food. It is either cut real small or is soft enough so that she can chew or swallow it easily without getting choked. Her left arm has moved on it’ own twice. This is good news. It means that the brain is trying to wakeup or make new pathways. This means that one day that she could suddenly just move her arm. That is why she needs the therapy to keep the muscles from becoming stiff and atrophy, so when it does happen she can move her arm.

If you set limits on yourself, you will never go beyond those limits and get better. If you tell yourself hat you will walk and move your arm one day. YOU WILL DO IT. You will have set backs along the way, that is only expected. The brain an heal itself  if given the right tools to do it with, Nutrition, vitamins and  minerals, exercise. There is still a lot we don’t know about the brain, or how it can heal itself. All I know right now is that I am happy that I still have my Grandmother still with us. So anyone in the family who reads this would like to visit her when she does get moved to the Stanton facility, It is called Stanton Nursing and Rehabilitation.
