Here’s the way Eva sees it: if John is so concerned about her butting into strangers’ lives, he shouldn’t leave her sitting at a table in Bob Evans with nothing to occupy her time…
Enter Cecelia – a pregnant teenager who needs a family for her baby. Fate has placed her at a table behind Eva and John. Now Eva has a chance – a chance to give her daughter, Shelly, the one thing Shelly desperately wants. But nothing is ever as easy as it seems. Because sometimes daughters are not born to us – they are gifted by desperate teenagers – seated behind us at Bob Evans…
QUICK NOTE...Update: 6/25/19
Still working through things. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. You'd think we'd be back in our home by now, since the disaster occurred October 2018, but nope. Things are very slow to progress towards normalcy...and every day presents a new headache/nightmare to deal with. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bookish adventures. It helps remind me I'm not alone in this crazy journey called life.

Speaking of “not picking up otherwise”, today’s blog tour guest (AND BOOK BIRTHDAY celebrant) definitely falls into that category…at least for this reader. As many of you know, I’ve only more recently begun exploring the Romance genre. Sounds corny or prude-ish, I know, but I’m not a fan of “too much” in a novel and the classic definition of a Romance novel to me, screams of this…not to mention the covers, the titles, etc. How can I be blamed for my assumption…fully at least? Am I right? *waits for response* Of course…and not just because it’s me either. (^-^) Once again those who are frequent readers here will remember the appearance of some of my more recent dabbles here and there, as well as my surprise as to their actual content for both better and worse. Today’s pick, definitely for the better! Coming to us via TLC Book Tours, today’s blog tour guest and book of choice is…

Cervera, Spain, 1852. David Sandoval is a sixteen-year-old genius on many different subjects, yet he is more content studying than becoming close with family or friends. He accepts an apprenticeship offer from a French architect, and while on his travels to Paris, a foolhardy decision on his part gets him abducted by a gypsy caravan owned by a living Grecian sphinx. The sphinx, seemingly intrigued by the fearless young man, takes him through the Curtain, the gateway between our world and the worlds of the unseen, where many creatures of myth and legend reside. When David attempts to escape back through the Curtain to the human world, he learns a dark secret: a Shade, an extension of the shadowy Night Goddess Nyx, is slowly draining the sphinx of her most precious talents. Can one normal boy truly undo the inflictions of a goddess, and rescue both the seen and unseen worlds from her dark intentions?
