Day four of not having bought any plants. MY HUMMING BIRD IS BACK!!! That little rascal has been missing for two weeks at the very least. I was really worried that something might have happened to him/her. I have no idea if it’s a him or a her. We are not THAT close. Sure I had to save it half a dozen times from being trapped in the skylight, but that doesn’t make us friends. Although it should. I mean, I could have left it there to figure it out on its own, but I didn’t. You would think that it would at least be a little appreciative and maybe let me know it was going on vacation for a while and not to worry. Kinda starting to think they bird is a bit rude. Seriously! No phone call, no postcard… NOTHING! Just worry and heartache. Ugh…. so it’s been four days since I bought a plant.

“A warm, moving story of the power of love.” NYT Bestselling Author Debbie Macomber

In her impetuous summer of love, Jenny St. Claire found Luke Sheridan — her dashing knight in intern’s scrubs. But a fast-track future and rigid, ambitious parents drove passion out of Luke’s life. And the summer ended, leaving Jenny with a broken heart… and a beautiful son, Danny, to help mend it.

Years later it is tragedy that reunites them — the father whom a son longs to know, and the mother who has tried desperately to forget. And as Luke and Jenny struggle to ignore the pain and desire reborn in a look and a touch, only the remarkable courage of a young boy — and the help of a rather unorthodox guardian angel — can offer them the most precious gift of all: a second chance at the love of a lifetime.

Don’t miss this emotionally heartwrenching love story from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy.

Genre: Thrillers | Historical Fiction

FREE for a limited time

A Russian conspiracy in Washington, DC… A passenger jet is shot down, killing hundreds. A mole wreaks havoc in the White House. And an oligarch bent on the most malicious kind of revenge targets Joe Johnson.

War crimes investigator Johnson is sent undercover by his former employer, the CIA, to untangle a web of deceit and online blame games in Russia’s Black Sea region after the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) in Ukraine.

But he quickly finds he has bitten off more than he can chew — and that the key to the conspiracy lies not in Moscow, but on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Johnson, his partner Jayne Robinson, and his friends in the CIA eventually have to come to terms with the fact that Russian methods of infiltrating the US are evolving faster than American counterintelligence realizes in the post-Cold War era, and they are struggling to catch up.

The drama reaches a climax in the US capital and on the Black Sea coast, where Johnson’s long-term nemesis has a stronghold.

The Black Sea, book number six in the Joe Johnson series, is a compelling spy thriller with multiple twists that you won’t want to put down.
