Winter in Full BloomWinter in Full Bloom by Anita Higman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yes, this is my 2nd 5-star review in a row. No, I'm not getting soft on authors. This book is that good! Not only is the cover art perfect for the story, but the title is perfect too. I loved it from the very first page.

Lily Winter is one of the most relate-able characters I've read in the long, long time. She's a little bit of so many women I know...myself included. Marcus Averill is the charming man every woman should meet on a park bench. And nobody can do the evil step-mother (even if she's not a "step") better than Iris Gray.

Toss in a trip around the world to track down an unknown twin sister, a confrontation with "the other woman" and the empty nest... and you've got a story that will keep you turning the pages long past lights out. Find out how they mix it all up and learn to forgive the past to build the future.

A Memory of Light (Wheel of Time, #14; A Memory of Light, #3)A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my word. I've been reading this series for more than twenty years. You read that right. More than twenty years! I can't tell you how much I've looked forward to this final book. And, of course, when Mr. Jordan passed away many of us Wheel of Time fans feared we'd never see it. But in his wisdom, Mr. Jordan passed the torch on to Brandon Sanderson. He could not have chosen a better stand-in to finish the series. Mr. Sanderson delivered the perfect ending. I love it. L-O-V-E-D it!

And a little part of me thinks - hopes - that Mr. Sanderson left the door open just a smidgen on another book... I can hope, right?!
