Synopsis:

In the aftermath of her financier husband’s suicide, Emma Shay Compton’s dream life is shattered. Richard Compton stole his clients’ life savings to fund a lavish life in New York City and, although she was never involved in the business, Emma bears the burden of her husband’s crimes. She is left with nothing.

Only one friend stands by her, a friend she’s known since high school, who encourages her to come home to Sonoma County. But starting over isn’t easy, and Sonoma is full of unhappy memories, too. And people she’d rather not face, especially Riley Kerrigan.

Riley and Emma were like sisters—until Riley betrayed Emma, ending their friendship. Emma left town, planning to never look back. Now, trying to stand on her own two feet, Emma can’t escape her husband’s reputation and is forced to turn to the last person she thought she’d ever ask for help—her former best friend. It’s an uneasy reunion as both women face the mistakes they’ve made over the years. Only if they find a way to forgive each other—and themselves—can each of them find the life she wants.

Review:

I am not sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t this. Almost as soon as I started reading this story drew me in and wouldn’t let me put it down for a second. That hardly ever happens now a days and I am thrilled that this one did!

The Life She Wants surprised me because of how much I enjoyed it. From beginning to end this is a well written and well paced story. You can very easily connect to the characters and the situations they find themselves in. You just feel for Emma and you want to cheer her on as she moves forward in her life. Riley has also overcome so much and it looks like her life is finally on track and where it should be. The ending is quite perfect and it put me in a good mood for the rest of the day.

I haven’t read a lot of Ms. Carr’s books but this one has me adding her to my must read list! This is one book that I would happily read over and over again. I highly recommend you read this book. You will be so happy that you did!

My husband was complaining that the steering wheel in his truck was getting rough and was uncomfortable to use. So I decided to surprise him with this high end looking steering wheel cover.

Once I ordered it it arrived two days later (thanks Prime shipping!) and it was very well packaged.

IMG_8260

Easy to unwrap, this steering wheel came with a lavender sachet. It really helped the steering wheel not smell like chemicals or anything stinky.

We read the instructions and thought it was a misprint that when it said that this steering wheel cover is not easy to put on…

IMG_8261

They were right! It too both my Hubby and myself to get it on. But I will say now that it is on it is not coming off!The fit is tight and not loose at all and we really like it!

Above is the before picture.

Below is the after picture. Doesn’t it look great! And it is very comfortable to use. We are very impressed and now we may get one for each of our vehicles!

This has been a quiet week at my house. I have been slowly getting over the reading slump that has plagued me for the last couple of week. I did read and finish both book I got this week but now I am stuck and just can’t seem to find a book to read. I have so many, it is just so hard to choose one!

Well I am going to go color until I can figure out what to read!

I’m calculating, like most women… Except… I’m no ordinary woman…

I’m emotionally damaged… And, I accept that, hell… I embrace it.

I’m a lost soul… I don’t do Love in any shape or form, well I didn’t think I did, until the universe didn’t see eye to eye with me and decided to teach me a lesson that I would never forget, showing me Love can take many forms…

I was asked to review this Led Strip Lighting and I thought it would be a fun thing for my family and I to try out. I had no idea how much fun it was going to be!

The package arrived two days after ordering in perfect condition. You can gift wrap it quite easily if you are going to give it to someone. I would recommend it for a techie or a teenage boy.

IMG_8298

This kit came with everything I needed to get started. It took no time at all to get it plugged in and the remote operational.

As soon as it cam on my kids came in to check it out. I have to admit that even I was entranced by all the different color lights.. My favorite of course is the purple…

IMG_8305

My kids love it! We have already come up with ways to use it this Holiday season. It will be perfect for our Halloween decorations as well as Christmas and New Years! Oh, the ideas are endless on how to use it to brighten up our living room.

IMG_8300IMG_8301

When the Holidays are over my boys want to use it I their room. The have already decided to put it along their baseboards and use it as a nightlight that lights a path to the bathroom. Not a bad idea at all!
