Weekly Book Haul......September 4, 2016

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.

I'm in the middle of a long weekend, although I'm on call for work, so it's not really like I can completely disconnect.  But I am enjoying a lot of pool time because this really will probably be the last weekend where the pool temperature feels just right.  As the temps drop to 72 overnight, the pool cools down fast.  And I don't have a heater, so once the water temp goes under 80, I'm done.

I've had some good reads this week.  I read Night Shift by Charlaine Harris and The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman.  I don't feel obligated to do reviews on either, since they weren't given to me as ARC's.  I guess that's the power of paying for them yourself!  So I'll just say Night Shift was great and I did not care for The Light Between Oceans at all - gave it two stars on Goodreads.  And reading it destroyed any desire to see the movie. 

Christmas Under a Cranberry Sky by Holly Martin....This year spend a
wonderful Christmas on Juniper Island, where love can melt even the iciest of hearts… 

Piper Chesterfield lives a glamorous life travelling the world and reviewing the finest hotels. She calls nowhere home, she works alone and that’s how she likes it. For long ago Piper decided that to protect her heart she should lock it away. 
So when Piper’s next assignment brings her to the newly opened Stardust Lake Hotel for the festive season, the last person she expects to face is Gabe Whitaker, the man who broke her heart so completely she could never love again. 

But Piper isn’t the only one who has been frozen in time by heartbreak. Gabe hasn’t forgotten the golden-eyed girl who disappeared from his world without a trace. 

Now fate has reunited them on Juniper island, can the magic of Christmas heal old wounds? And can this enchanting town be the one place Piper can finally call home? 

Curl up with this gorgeously romantic tale and let the glistening snow and the roaring fires of Stardust Lake Hotel get you in the festive spirit this Christmas. 

Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner......For twenty-eight years, things have been
tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for 
The Philadelphia Examiner. She’s even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body.

But the day she opens up a national women’s magazine and sees the words “Loving a Larger Woman” above her ex-boyfriend’s byline, Cannie is plunged into misery…and the most amazing year of her life. From Philadelphia to Hollywood and back home again, she charts a new course for herself: mourning her losses, facing her past, and figuring out who she is and who she can become.
