It's that simple.

This week I'm reading...

Finally Gaby joined Tom dishing steaming oatmeal into bowls. She worked fast and efficiently at his side, noticing that almost every bowl had a chip in it. That was her own doing. She insisted that they use real dinnerware - no paper or plastic, except for the napkins.


  1. I like it! Very down to earth, with the oatmeal and the chipped bowls. I can sense a "normalcy" about what lies ahead.


  2. I just finished this one yesterday and I loved it. It got me in the cheer of Christmas, plus it was fluid writing.

  3. Hi Yvonne,

    The whole style of this book cover, looks so unlike the usual James Patterson, that it is difficult to imagine it being a mystery novel.

    I agree with Laurel Rain, that the scene you depict seems so normal for most households, that it is difficult to see anything untoward happening.

    I did take a sneak look at the synopsis, just to make sure it was by the same 'James Patterson' and I was intrigued ... I wonder why she feels the need to keep the identity of the bridegroom a secret? and what the surpise is that she has in store for her children?

    Can't wait for your review of this one,


  4. Hi!
    I have to agree, this just doesn't seem like a James Patterson book. I'll have to check this one out. Have a great day!

  5. This cover is so different from a James Patterson norm. I must return to read your review.

  6. A very down-to-earth, homey scene!

    Here's my Friday memes:
