Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...

QUICK NOTE...Update: 1/2/19

The blog is slowly coming back on line. 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. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. I've finally reached a stage in all this chaos that I feel that I can try to take a few baby steps back into the blogging world. A post here, a post there, and who knows. Hope you stay along for the ride!

About the book...
Spring has come to Fernwood Forest, and the Heartwood Hotel is all a-bustle. With Mr. Heartwood off on vacation, it's up to Mona and the rest of the staff to keep everything running smoothly. When rumors buzz of a rival hotel, Gilles is determined to prove that the Heartwood is the very best with the splashiest Spring Splash the forest has ever seen. Guests check in from near and far to compete for the Cutest Egg, the Tiniest Talent, and the Best Blossom. Newcomer Henry is all too happy to help out, making Mona start to feel unsure of her place. Does the Heartwood really need her as much as she thought? But soon there's more to worry about than whose egg has the sweetest speckles. Some decidedly uninvited guests have been drawn to the festivities. Can Mona find a way to bring everyone together in time to save them all from danger?

Heartwood Hotel

An adorable addition to the growing Heartwood Hotel series with enough danger and excitement to keep it interesting, but a whole lot of the friendship and heart we've come to love. It was great visiting with old friends, enjoyable making new ones, and wonderful to see Mona settle in more at her new(ish) home.  The "return of the grump" was an unfortunate setback, but realistic (you can't tell me you've never felt unnecessarily grumpy thanks to someone or something in your life) and the way Mona handles it was admirable.  Change isn't always easy, especially when you feel slighted or left behind, but accepting it and finding a new way to look at things can certainly turn a frown upside down; seeking the open arms and hearts of our friends never hurt anyone either.  All our animal friends have to work together to divert a common threat (gasp!) and while they certainly aren't jumping (or flying) at the chance to act as one, if anyone can get them to cooperate, it's Mona...and maybe even Henry.

So go ahead, pick your dates, plan your stay, and get ready to have a relaxing vacation at your best home away from home choice, this side of Fernwood Forest.   Even though Mr. Heartwood is away, you're still in good hands...and don't forget to join the festivities!
