Sunday Post - 242 & Stacking the Shelves - 193

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.

This was a good week. Even with bad weather two days, each day it was clear enough for us to go for our afternoon walk. I truly struggle on the days when we're trapped inside all day. My dryer was delivered on Tuesday. I'm so thankful to finally have it. I went into laundry overload this week trying to catch up. My niece and nephew from Georgia were on Spring Break this week so their family came to visit for a couple of days. It was nice to eat dinner with them twice this week and spend some time hanging out. I don't know what my mind was thinking, but for some reason I had it in my head that I'd be able to work outside on Saturday almost all day, but I must have completely forgotten that I have a year and a half old daughter or something. I'm sure it's just that last week she was at her grandmother's house on Saturday and I was spoiled with being able to do whatever chores I felt like doing. Ah well. I'd rather her be at home with me anyway. Although there is still much to do around our house outside.

Goodreads description--SPOILERS FOR FULL TILT....

Reeling from her loss, Kacey Dawson is grieving and heartbroken, her addictive demons hauling her back into the alcohol-soaked abyss she worked so hard to crawl out of. Kacey teeters on the edge of oblivion, and must fight her way through the pain, to build a new life for herself with her music, and somehow fulfill the promise she made to Jonah…one she feels is impossible to keep.

Theo Fletcher has a secret burning in his heart, one that he holds close, while he struggles to keep strong for his family that is falling apart. His mother’s health is fragile and his father’s disapproval is breaking him down. Theo is afraid if he follows his heart, he’ll fail, and not just himself, but his brother who believed in him when no one else did.

Drawn together by their pain, Theo and Kacey slowly build a friendship, re-forge old ties, help each other to heal, and give one another the courage to reach for their dreams. Together, from the depths of grief and guilt, they learn to laugh again, to trust again, and quite possibly find something beautiful and lasting amid the shattered pieces of their broken hearts.

Part II of the two-part Full Tilt duet, coming Oct 2016

PLEASE NOTE, this novel is NOT a standalone. It is highly recommended one read Full Tilt first to get the entire arc of the story and to avoid spoilers.
