Forget it. He'd get a safety deposit box. Then he'd have plenty of time to figure out what to do next.

Chapter 1
SCAM

"More coffee?"
Ethan jumped. It'd been a long night. "Okay."
The waitress wasn't listening, the coffee pot dripping toward Ethan's cup. Which was fine. The coffee was crap and he was already wired, but it gave him an excuse to keep sitting there.

  9. I have this one somewhere on TBR mountain. I should dig it out and put it on my summer reading stack. My YA book this week is The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May. Happy reading!

  16. I love this Freda and even more so that it's on Instagram! I don't have much blog space to post a lot of memes, so looking forward to taking part in this one too. I have Zeroes on my shelf but haven't had time to pick it up as yet. Really looking forward to it. Thanks so much for sharing.

Dr. Suess' The Grinch (With #Giveaway)

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Giveaway: A Touch Of Scandal

Book description:
The last thing Garrett, Duke of Calton, expects to find while tracking his sworn enemy is the delectable, mysterious Kate. This beautiful servant girl rouses a longing the battle-scarred ex-soldier had never
hoped to feel again. But when she turns out to be the sister of the man
he seeks, he's convinced he's been betrayed.
Kate knows her duty to her family, yet how can she ignore Garrett's powerful pull on
her heart? Or the heady temptation of his stolen-and sizzling-kisses?
