Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 06/23/19

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.

Monday and Tuesday were mostly normal days. We had the AC people come back to check up on our new unit (which is working great). The kids and I played outside, and we all went swimming when Daddy got home from work. Tuesday the kids went to my mom's house for the rest of the week. We get them back today. Husband had a work conference that he and I went to. We left Wednesday morning for Palm Beach, Florida and came home Saturday. He was in meetings and conferences during the morning and we had the afternoons to ourselves. We did have a couple of dinners to attend also, but I was able to focus on relaxing and reading by the pool and on the beach for the most part. We also celebrated my birthday while we were there on Friday. It was a lovely trip, but I sure have missed my kiddos.

Goodreads description--Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart. After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming love, reality intervened. They could have no future. Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired—until the most important person in his past returns, challenging him as no one ever has.

When Sarah’s ailing uncle summons her back to the family estate in England, there is only one person from her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil, the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried—but is it too late for second chances?
