Vince at Philosophy of Romance said "Alice Audrey’s voice is fresh, feisty, full of surprises and always fun. The author also deals with real people having real problems and she does it in a very insightful way."
Nessa at Chrysalis Stage said "If you like sweet, fast-paced romance with a hot hero and all of the misunderstandings that two people can throw at each other, then you will love this story."
Night Owl Reviews didn't have anything nice to say about it. Hey, you can't win them all.
By Guta Bauer at Murphy's Library did it twice! Once in English and once in Portuguese. I'm assuming they both say, "Life goes on, choices need to be made and we can never let our past deny us of our future. That’s just some of the things we learn from this story. "

I’m a guest blogger! Actually, I did a bunch of guest blogs when Moving In first came out, but I haven’t been real active since. This time I’m talking about Icarus, his accident, and his accidents, if you know what I mean. You can read all about him and see a new picture of him or two at Underneath The Shell.
In other news, I’ve once again gone from green grass to snow. Sigh. I don’t think this is quite what they meant by April showers.
Galen has been sick for three weeks now. I don’t know what happened, but it involves many antibiotics and a hospital stay. I went ahead and did Fiction Friday 55s the last two weeks, but I just don’t have it in me this week. I’m hoping for his full recovery soon.
We actually hit 80 degrees yesterday (Sunday). For weeks now we’ve been getting rain and highs in the 60′s. I’ve had to run the furnace as recently as Saturday. It’s so nice to warm up a bit.
I’m sorry I missed a couple of days posting. I’ve been busy painting a house. I’ve got paint splatters on my hands and arms. My arms are so tired they are shaky. Still have one room to do the primer on, then we can start in on the top coats. I’m so glad I don’t have to do it alone.
Last week I talked about steps involved in buying a house. Some of the comments inspired me to tell a few stories about buying, owning, and renting.
1. The first place I lived once I moved out on my own was the dorms. I was a transfer student, had just spent a month in China, and chose the dorms because it saved me the hassle of looking for a place from hundreds of miles away when I was short on time. I lasted two whole terms before I got fed up with not being able to eat when I pleased, simi-public bathrooms, and curfews.
2. Over the next five years I moved ten times, culminating in my first home purchase.
3. Renting a place that was already furnished turned out to be easy.
4. Renting one once I got a cat became hard, and forced me into more unfurnished places.
5. The worst of the lot was the landlord who was trying to sell the building. They were supposed to give me 24 hours notice before showings, but typically pinned a note to my door the night before. “Hilarity” ensued.
6. Landlords might talk a hard line, but I never had my deposit deducted for painting a place, even when I picked ghastly colors, and none ever noticed the nail holes I added. I didn’t even have to pay for the scorch marks, though the manager and I had a long talk about fire extinguishers and how to get all the dust from one out. But go more than a month without paying the rent and you’re in serious trouble.
7. Every house I have purchased has been a fixer-upper older than the house my great grandfather built.
8. My first house had a leaky roof. We’re talking the kind that requires the pulling out of buckets to catch the water. It took $10,000 to get it squared away, but we took the opportunity to put in a dormer that increased the houses overall size by 400 square feet. It was worth it.
9. I sold that house in a yard sale. Well, almost. I had a For Sale By Owner sign on the porch and was running a yard sale, and the people who eventually bought it asked if the house was part of the yard sale. We showed it to them right then. Took about three months for the resulting paperwork to complete.
10. It was almost better before we started buying our homes. Then I could get Mr. Al to prune some of his pack-rat additions with each move.
11. Our first move as a couple involved traveling from Montana to Wisconsin. Everything fit into the back of a Toyota pickup.
12. Thirteen years later we moved from Wisconsin to Montana. We literally had eleven tons of belongings packed into a Ryder truck (the biggest they had) towing a trailer. There were boxes in the car on the trailer.
13. The longest, hairiest, most paperwork intensive purchase I’ve ever endured is the one I’m trying to do now.
is running late. Sorry, but I’m at one of those points where I have half a dozen choices for where to go from last week, and I can’t seem to decide. So, I’ll figure it out in the morning (it’s 12:14 am as I write this. but I still count that as night). Hopefully I’ll have it posted by noon.
They would be even more powerful if that pox epidemic hadn’t flattened their birthrate and made them so desperate for a new gene pool and breeders. Maybe they are militaristic, overly programmed, and somewhat lacking in a sense of humor.
I got totally sucked in to the first two books, but it’s taking me a little longer to get into this one. Probably it’s just that it took me too long to get the copy. I AM enjoying it, even if I’m also reading a couple of other books at the same time.
