Hi there readers!
Welcome back to the site that strives to satisfy your craving for all things bookish...well at least for a little while anyway....Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers. A great big thank you...wait, that was too small...THANK YOU (much better) to all of you for making a stop here a part of your day. Your comments and thoughts, heck even your lurking without saying a word (you know who you are) is much appreciated and I am humbled by your presence.
What's up with the tone of 'thanks' today? Why it's almost Valentine's Day and love in its many forms just seems to be in the air. *takes a big sniff...and exhale* Ah, sweet is it not? Anywho...today's feature is for the young numerically and at heart as well as a perfect book for Valentine's Day if I do say so. It's little story I happened upon while perusing the NetGalley site not so long ago. What's that? You don't do eBooks you say? No worries...it comes in actual book format too and would most certainly be worth the addition to your library if not for the story, for the artwork! Ready to "read all about it"? Here we go. Today's book of choice is...
The scene opens as Ruby Valentine and Lovebird (you've got to love those names) are just getting settled into their new home. You see, they just recently moved to the area and are now residing in a cozy little cottage high above the city of Heartland...the perfect place for a family with the name of "Valentine" don't you think? Ruby's favorite holiday (Valentine's Day....who'd have thought? ^_^) is fast approaching and being new in town, she's come up with the perfect way to celebrate this year...a party! She promptly makes the (most adorable) invitations inviting the whole town to the get together. Everything seems to be going well with the preparations...there's just one little problem. Ruby forgot to check the thermostat when making the plans because just like most of you (not us down here...*grumble*grumble*) are experiencing this year, it was colder than usual and when the big day arrived....surprise! Snow...and lots of it. Will the big party be ruined leaving these two fine friends to spend Valentine's Day on their own?
