Sunday Salon: Buried in books

Renoir - Les Deux Soeurs

It's been one of those weeks with James being sick all week and running back and forth to the doctor.  On top of everything else, he seems to have come down with a bladder infection.  We're waiting to hear back from the doctor on the culture results and what course of action to take next.  The last round of antibiotics didn't agree with him too well, but he's been holding down fluids for the past couple days.  He's at that point where he needs to eat but doesn't want to, but I managed to get him to eat some toast today.  With all the down time and waiting around the doctor's office I've managed to get a lot of reading in.    I immersed myself in the world of the Drake Sisters by Christine Feehan and basically read the whole series.  It is a paranormal romance series based on 7 sisters who control the elements. The series starts with the oldest sister's story - Sarah Drake in Magic in the Wind. It is a short novel which I wish was really longer but it is a good introduction to the series and the sisters, but the rest are full length novels.  

The books in the series are:

1  Magic in the Wind  (Sarah)
2  Twilight before Christmas  (Kate)
3  Oceans of Fire  (Abigail)
4  Dangerous Tides  (Libby)
5  Safe Harbor  (Hannah)
6  Turbulent Seas  (Joley)
7  Hidden Currents   (Elle)

Wonderful series, great characters and interesting story line.   Kept me riveted all week long.  And now, there is the next series set in the same town of Sea Haven involving 6 women called Sisters of the Heart Series.  The women aren't related but all meet in grief counseling and live together on a farm.  I just started the first book in the series Water Bound which just came out in July.  The lead female character is highly functional autistic with sensory issues and magically controls water.  She's an interesting character.  As you can tell I love series books. 

Speaking of series, I had 3 giveaways over the past couple weeks and am ready to announce the winners.   Sorry it took me so long, have been rather preoccupied.  :)

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.   Louisa May Alcott
