Weekly Book Haul....August 6, 2017

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly book meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews, The Sunday Post is another great site hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  The Sunday Salon is a Facebook page where great readers share what they've read this week and Mailbox Monday is a weekly roundup of the new books people have received.

It's August.  My birthday month and a month that never seems to really understand it's own identity.  It's still super hot, I'm still swimming every weekend, but all I'm hearing are complaints about school supplies and all I'm seeing is first day of school pics all over my Facebook feed.

It's a 106 degrees, I have my air conditioning running non-stop, and the whole house smells like pumpkin spice, thanks to the plug ins I bought yesterday.  I do love all things fall, but I'm going to try to hang on to summer for at least another month.

For the last week, I've been sucked into the Archy McNally series by Lawrence Sanders.  I read Volume One of the series, which is the first three books.  They were just as good as I remembered - just fun, lighthearted mysteries.  It made me want to keep going through the series again.  Sanders really was a great writer - and I'm not sure if it was harder or easier to be a best selling writer back then.  If you've never read these books, take a look, I think you'll enjoy them!

Here's what I added to my TBR shelf this week.

Left to Chance by Amy Sue Nathan.....No one knows why Teddi Lerner left

her hometown, but everyone knows why she’s back.
Twelve-year-old Shayna— talented, persistent, and adorable—persuaded "Aunt Tee" to return to Chance, Ohio, to photograph her father’s wedding. Even though it's been six years since Shay's mother, Celia, died, Teddi can hardly bear the thought of her best friend's husband marrying someone else. But Teddi’s bond with Shay is stronger than the hurt.
Teddi knows it’s time to face the consequences of her hasty retreat from family, friends, and, her old flame, but when she looks through her viewfinder, nothing in her small town looks the same. That’s when she truly sees the hurt she's caused and—maybe—how to fix it. 
After the man she once loved accuses Teddi of forgetting Celia, Teddi finally admits why she ran away, and the guilt she’s carried with her. As Teddi relinquishes the distance that kept her safe, she’ll discover surprising truths about the people she left behind, and herself. And she'll finally see what she overlooked all along.
