I don't know about you, but this winter has seemed harsh.
Do you get that sense?
Snow. Ice. High winds. Bitter cold.
You'd think living in the Midwest would make you used to it.
Insert whiny voice** "Noooo!"
Give me spring!! Sweet blossoms budding on trees. Warn days going barefoot outside. Taking a snooze on the deck. Feeling the warm breeze on your face. Yes!
That "warmth" last exactly one day. Then plunged back to below freezing the next day.
*Sigh. I know that come summer, I'll be thinking how ready I am for fall--but for now, give me hope that spring--despite the shivering, confused robins outside--is truly on its way!
Now I'm on deadline with a book (Norah-A St Patrick's day Bride-from the new Brides of Noelle series) **not-so-thinly veiled plug* here's the gorgeous cover...
And oh, what the heck--a blurb...
Not proud of his seedy entanglements back East, Irish Immigrant Seamus (pronounced Shamus) Malone is determined to create a new and better life in the western frontier, but despite attempts to reach the woman that captured his heart, his letters for the last four years have gone unanswered. Will a plea for help from Noelle’s new matchmaker convince his estranged wife to join him in this new world, proving his love, and that he is a changed man?
Passion (and a controlling aunt) drove Norah into marriage, but when she finds her new husband dabbling in drink and dangerous liaisons, she bid him farewell, relenting to his pipe dreams of a better life, while she remained behind living in the shame of a broken marriage. But when a dark truth is discovered she must now decide if the love she once felt is enough to survive a second chance in the New West?
But I digress....let's get back to spring! (although I believe this weekend we "spring" ahead!!) Isn't that evidence that spring is indeed truly just around the corner??
