What to expect when visitng my blog...
I would like to take a minute and share with you what to expect when looking over my blog. This page is an opportunity to share with others what I like to do in my spare time. These activities range from reading, which I need to do more of (have a mountain of books to conquer and I still buy more =)...) making my own greeting cards, ornaments and more.

Title: The Season
Author: Sarah MacLean
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Okay before I share my review I must admit I was a little hesitant to read this book. The whole regency era thing not my speed but a friend of mine kept telling me how much I would love this book because she did. (we don't always see eye to eye on books) So to get my friend Gail (also known as Irish) off my back I bought the book. I began reading the book and at first was like okay it isn't that bad I can probably finish it but as the book went on I become more engulfed in Alexandra's adventures with her two friends.
The book starts off with Alexandra (called Alex by her friends) totally not wanting to join in her season. She doesn't want to be married off to the highest bider. Alex wants to marry for love but her mother makes her attend the balls and shows her off to the eligible men. While attending one of the balls a mystery begins that involves her, her friends and her childhood friend Gavin. Let me just interject here I love Gavin. In my opinion he helped push the story along.
Others that help make the story fun are Alex's brothers. they taunt her but also have to take the same punishment as she does. Her mother feels in some cases that her brothers need to watch out for her. The dialogue between brothers and sister at times is hysterical and make you laugh out loud.
The Season is a wonderful love story with a mystery twist. I highly recommend it be read.
