Sunday Post & Stacking the Shelves - 8/26/18

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.

Both kids are still struggling with colds. We're going on week 3 for Little Girl. I thought she was well until Saturday morning she woke up worse than she has been this entire time. Not much to report for our regular week. School runs on Tuesday and Thursday. She's still having a blast. Saturday the kids and I picked up my parents and headed to Gulf Shores to spend a few hours with my sister and her family. The kids were so good. Especially considering that both are sick and we spent more time in the car driving there and back than we did out. But it was so good to visit.

Goodreads description--Standing before Feldstone Manor, site of so many happy memories, Rose Davenport feels nothing but dread. Her family’s annual visit to the stately home was once brightened by her friendship with the earl’s youngest son, William, but everything changed the day his elder brother was disinherited and William became heir to his father’s earldom. From that moment, William made it clear he has no interest in continuing an acquaintance with Rose. Heartbroken, she sets out to prove that she will simply not be ignored—or outdone—by the arrogant future lord of the manor. When his elder brother marries for love, William’s entire life changes in an instant. He does not have the same option to marry whom he chooses, and he must let go of the feelings he has harbored for his dear friend, Rose. He steels himself against her annual visits, determined to keep his feelings for her a secret. But when he makes the hasty promise to marry within six months, he never dreams that his actions will lead Rose to impulsively undertake the same challenge.
