"So what now, Ana?" José shouts at me over the noise.
"Kate and I are moving to Seattle. Kate's parents have bought a condo there for her."
"Dios mio, how the other half live. But you'll be back for my show?"
"Of course, José, I wouldn't miss it for the world." I smile, and he puts his arm around my waist and pulls me close.


  1. I haven't decided whether or not I want to read FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY. Reviews seem to be mixed. But I did enjoy your excerpt.

  2. Fifty Shades of Grey is one I have not read - I have deliberately avoided it but I don't really know why. No doubt curiosity will get the better of me and I will read it because EVERYONE else I know has! lol :)

  3. Interesting. I'm looking forward to your review on this one.

  4. I have nooo idea the guy, I assume, he's the main character, was Spanish like me. Mmmm now I'm curious and I want to know more.

    Thanks for sharing and creating The Friday 56 :)

  5. hmmm...that doesn't sound controversial lol.

    i still don't know if i want to read this Trilogy or not. something to think about though. thanks for sharing Freda!

  6. Popular title, and similar lyrics by Billy Joel and the Monkees as well. I've always liked the expression, shades of gray. I'm glad Ana isn't going to miss his show! lol

  7. Oh, my, now what? lol

    I hope you're enjoying this one....

  8. Sometimes I really wish I could have a friend like Kate who's parents have amazing real estate for me to live in!

  9. Interesting enough snippet, but I'll probably not be reading these books. I don't think I'd enjoy them that much really. Hope you enjoy them, though.

  10. like others here mention, I am not sure still if I want to read this or not.. but everytime I go to amazon, there it is at the top of the lists..

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
