I decided to finally start putting the recipe book together that I have had in my stash for a while. So I have done the front cover - in a pumpkin theme of course!
I also have an book review to share with you this time!
The Keeper of Happy Endings by Barbara Davis
Soleen Rousell comes from a lineage of women who guarantee that anybody who wears one of their wedding dresses will have a happy ending. They are skilled both with needles and with charms, but they don’t serve just anybody – they have to be sure that the people who they provide the happy ending to are the right pairing. However, this ability comes at a cost – love seems to be out of reach for these ladies, with heart break following rapidly if they do fall in love. The family call this a curse.
When a young lady who is going through a heartbreak of her own, decides that she wishes to buy Soleen’s now derelict shop for use as an art gallery for unknown artists, a new friendship slowly blossoms. Soleen is reluctant at first, but she sees something of herself in the young lady that encourages her to come out of her shell to help. As the gallery nears its opening day, and Soleen opens up about her past, the present starts to be full of surprises, and they are not all good ones.
This is a really gripping story of heartbreak, determination and hope, as well as looking at how fragile relationships are in general. It is well worth reading.
