Evening Edition! Free Kindle & Nook Book!

Today was a day of errands, a day of not getting much sewing done as other jaunts around town took me elsewhere. It was a GORGEOUS day, temps reached about 72…and it was glorious to be out in it!

However. It was too cold in the basement to sew down here! Folks, we have reached the point where it is nicer outside than it is inside….and the plug-in space heater for my basement sewing studio came out of the storage closet. *SIGH* I so did not want to turn this on yet!

Sadie also appreciated it! I turned around while typing an email to see her lying down right next to the heater with her back all warm up against it! She is a smart girl, that Sadie Jane! I should have snapped a pic! I guess if you can’t cozy up to the sunny spot on the floor like a cat does, you can lay against the heater and be a dog :cD

One of my “jaunts” today was my yearly physical with the doc. I felt like I went in for the total overhaul! First off? CATTLE SCALE! NOT fun. And compared to last year’s visit for the same purpose….well….Do I need to remind you that in the past 6 weeks alone I’ve been to Alasaka twice, a week long Caribbean cruise, a week long trip to Kansas ((OH the cinnamon rolls!!)) and just returned from being treated SO well in TN!! ((Did I tell you about the buffalo chicken dip yet? oh my!))

This girl needs to reign it in and get back to a more steady gym schedule! In fact, after this posts, I’m headed out for a long walk. Wanna join me?

I had blood drawn, I got a flu shot, I had an EKG. I had all my female bits checked –I don’t think they left ANYTHING undone. I’ll find out results when tests come back. Everything looks good, but I am worried about type 2 diabetes since my mom has it and was at my age when they found it. ((Yeah, Bye bye cinnamon rolls! :c( ))

Again. Need to be more physically active…make better choices…Are you with me?

So on to the free book….since the rest of my day was so exciting ((NOT!!))

My Sister’s Voice by Mary Carter, is free for UK customers in the Kindle store.

Book Description:

Every love leaves an echo. . .

What do you do when you discover your whole life was a lie? In Mary Carter's unforgettable new novel, one woman is about to find out...

At twenty-eight, Lacey Gears is exactly where she wants to be. An up-and-coming, proudly Deaf artist in Philadelphia, she's in a relationship with a wonderful man and rarely thinks about her difficult childhood in a home for disabled orphans. That is, until Lacey receives a letter that begins, "You have a sister. A twin to be exact. . ."

Learning that her identical, hearing twin, Monica, experienced the normal childhood she was denied resurrects all of Lacey's grief, and she angrily sets out to find Monica and her biological parents. But the truth about Monica's life, their brief shared past, and the reason for the twins' separation is far from simple. And for every one of Lacey's questions that's answered, others are raised, more baffling and profound.

Complex, moving, and beautifully told, My Sister's Voice is a novel about sisterhood, love of every shape, and the stories we cling to until real life comes crashing in. . .

Get the free ebook from Barnes & Noble.

Doesn’t this sound good? Run go get it! What is free now, may not be later ---no promises, and no affiliation, just an avid reader who can’t get enough free books. It’s kinda like free fabric, you know? :c)

Have a great evening everyone!
