It's that simple.

This week I'm reading...

This is from page 56 on my Nook...

"Honestly, Zach, I've baked ham every Christmas Eve since we were married. You'd think after twenty-four years you'd remember that."

"Right. Ham." Now that he thought about it, they did seem to have ham every year. Rosie used the bone for a black bean soup she served on New Year's Day, which was some Southern tradition she'd read about and adopted. It was supposed to guarantee good luck for the upcoming year. He doubted anyone believed that, but he liked black bean soup and so did Rosie.


  1. Sounds good. He's just a bit clueless though. Happy reading!

  2. I have read some McComber. A very cute cover and I'm getting hungry reading your 56. ^_^

  4. LOL 24 years? Yeah, you'd think he'd remember.

  5. OMG! He would irritate me, I'm afraid...LOL.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “SAVE THE DATE”

  6. Great description of a typical clueless man! Debbie Macomber's stories are always entertaining and heart-warming, and I'm sure this one is too.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: MADE FOR TWO.

  7. He's a typical man isn't he? I love Macomber's books, and love watching Cedar Cove too!

  8. I've really enjoyed the few Macomber books that I've read and I"m looking forward to this one. But seriously if I made ham every Christmas for 24 years and then made another meal out of the leftover bone and he forgot it I'd be about ready to throw the ham at him!

  9. He sounds like a bit of a bore. She sounds more like my kind of people.. lol...
    Happy weekend!

  10. This sounds yummy. I love ham. Her husband seems like the type to forget birthdays and anniversaries too. Uh oh!
    Here is my 56 -

  11. I've heard of Black Bean soup. It might be tasty. I love this series by Debbie Macomber. I might have stopped at 40 Harbor Street or something like that. I felt as though I knew the people. Trying to read these in order. Sure would like to skip to the Christmas one.
