New Books! And Award Day Again!!

I normally don't post twice in one day, so I will apologize (I feel like I've said that before... ). If you're looking for Teaser Tuesday (or missed it this morning), it's below this post now. Today is great for many reasons: It's 4:30 and I'm done with work, have already had my piano lesson and I got a "great job" sticker and a tootsie roll!, I'm going to play tennis as soon as hubby gets off work, another book idea sprang into my head today, I won another blog award, and my Amazon order is in!!! What a DAY!

My Amazon box presented me with three lovely books!
The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
