The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
It's been a good week around these parts. Husband and I are continuing to ride our bikes around our neighborhood. We've really enjoyed it. And the weather has been so nice. It was rainy towards the end of the week, but we worked around it. Friday night we went to my parents' to celebrate my dad and husband's birthdays. Husband's birthday isn't until next week, but we try to celebrate them together. The kids put on a Halloween show for us. I think this is the third year in a row that they've done it. They put some strategically placed lights that they turn off and on. They have spooky music. And one of them leads us around the back yard. I think it's awesome, and I really hate the day when they lose their childlike desire to do things like this.

Goodreads description--Julia Boyd has dated more than her share of jerks, and she’s done even pretending to like them. Putting her dating life on hold and focusing on her event planning career is a much safer bet for the blue-eyed blonde…until she meets her newest client.
Organizing the opening for an art gallery should be a breeze for Julia, but gallery owner Alex Holt is becoming very distracting. Tall and muscular with enough charisma and sexy dimples to make Julia swoon, Alex could be the perfect man. The two of them click immediately, creating enough witty banter to ignite sparks.
But just before flames of passion can erupt with Alex, Julia begins planning an engagement party…and learns the groom is Aiden, the man who broke her heart years ago. When Aiden admits that he still has feelings for Julia, everything changes. Should she seek shelter in the familiarity of the past, or should she risk everything on a brand-new love?
