YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
Of all the ways he could have died, drowning was the least likely.
-- Baker's Blues by Judith Ryan Hendricks.
This third book in Hendrick’s Bread Alone Trilogy finds baker Wyn Morrison in an emotion quandary, with her ex-husband dead, but Wyn the executor of his estate and forced to deal with one hot mess of memories and regrets. I want to make a weekend project of reading all three of the books in the trilogy.
Recently finished this. It's an emotional rollercoaster ride of a read! Enjoy !ReplyDelete
I have been eyeing this book. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I used this one a few weeks ago. Very strong book.ReplyDelete
Those intriguing first lines had me searching Goodreads for the full premise, then the complete series!
Whilst I am not going to be rushing to add them to my 'Want To Read' list just yet, they are definitely worth considering for the future, although I do agree with you, that perhaps they do need to be read in sequence and may not work too well as stand alone stories
Have fun reading them :)
I've seen this in the library before - sounds interesting!ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy your reading weekend.ReplyDelete
