What I Read in... June

Thursday, June 27, 2013

 

I can't believe it's already that time of the month to share what books I have been reading! Where did June go? More importantly, where did the first half of the year go?!

This month I read two great books and one... not so great one. In fact, I didn't finish the not-so-great one. My dad used to hold the philosophy that if he started a book he was going to finish it. But in the past few years, he has changed to think, "Why finish a bad book, when there are so many great ones out there waiting to be read?" I completely agree with my dad!

Larger-than-life new friends, a handsome but irksome new neighbor, and a mystery from her past may prove to Scarlett that living her life like a RomCom is more complicated than she thought! {Source}

It's Always Ruetten: Rain on Your Wedding Day by Curtis Edmonds
Rain on Your Wedding Day is a modern Southern Gothic novel about one family's tragic past and the consequences that it holds for their future.
Five years ago, Will Morse was arrested and charged with the murder of his youngest daughter Trixie. Will maintained his innocence, and claimed that Trixie's death was a suicide. Although Will escaped criminal charges, he lost his job as a Coca-Cola executive in the scandal. His wife, Danielle, left him, convinced that he had some role in Trixie's death. Distraught and racked by grief and guilt, Will retreated to the safety and silence of a remote cabin in the North Georgia wilderness.
Will's only connection to the outside world is a phone call he receives once a year, at Christmas, from his daughter Alicia. But this year, Alicia calls to tell Will that she is paying him a visit. Alicia arrives with her fiancĂ©e in tow, and tells Will that she expects him to attend the wedding in the spring. 
Will wants to rekindle his relationship with her daughter, especially once he learns that she is pregnant. However, Will fears that attending the wedding will bring up painful memories from his past, and lead to conflict with his ex-wife and her family, who still blame him for Trixie's death. ...
Rain on Your Wedding Day is a poignant, moving tale about the need for forgiveness, redemption, and Coca-Cola. {source}
