Book Swap


It's Monday and I'm in Texas! 
Which I could not be happier about.
We spent the weekend with my grandmother in New Mexico and watched my cousin get married.

Then the rest of the cousins and I went to see The Dark Knight Rises.
Which was amazing.
See it, it's good!

So on this fine Monday evening I'm sharing the two books I was sent for the 3rd round of the Book Swap:


I was partnered with one of the co-hosts:  Katie from The Nerdy Katie.

She was so sweet!
She sent me not just 1 but 2 books via my Nook.
It was so easy!

Here is what she sent me:

Book number 1:


Here is the synopsis from Barnes and Noble:

She's 33, unmarried, and stuffed into a Bubble Yum pink bridesmaid dress. And the whole town wants to fix her up with anyone with a dental plan . . .
Who's going to rescue Sadie Hollowell now?
Everyone in Lovett, Texas, knows Sadie has always been a "notional" kind of gal. She got a notion to leave town ASAP and never visit her daddy (bless his heart) again. Now she's back and got the notion to invite a good-looking, hard-muscled, total stranger to her cousin's wedding. Better a stranger than some of the losers she's dated.
Vince Haven got his muscles the hard way—as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan. He's staying in Lovett to visit his crazy aunt—the proprietor of the local Gas and Go. Before he can get the heck back out of the small town, his aunt makes him an offer he can't refuse. Maybe he'll stick around Lovett for a while. Maybe he'll make a "go" of the Gas and Go. Maybe he'll rescue Sadie out of that pink dress!
Thoughts:
I already finished it and it was throughly enjoyable.  Light and fluffy.  Super easy read.  Actually I went online and bought a few more of hers. 


Book number 2:


Synopsis from Barnes and Noble:

The historic hotel in BoonsBoro, Maryland, has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings. Now it's getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect of the family, Beckett's social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there's another project he's got his eye on: the girl he's been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen...

Thoughts:
I'm a huge fan of series and I've read one other series by Nora Roberts called The Bride Quartet.  I really enjoyed those books so I knew I would enjoy this one.  This is the first of three and it was really good.  Made me want to move to North Carolina and open a bookstore or a bed and breakfast. 
Can't wait to read the other two! :)


Pretty good hull if you ask me!

Thank you so much Katie! 
You rock!
