Love this book! IMO better and more informative than New Atkins for a New You!

Goodness Gracious Green (Kindle edition<---- love my Kindle! )
2d in a series by Judy Christie

"Sometimes the sequel to good book leaves the reader disappointed. Not so with Goodness Gracious Green, sequel to Gone to Green. I loved it and hope there's a third book in this series. Judy Christie writes such charming characters that I was drawn into their lives. I want to visit Green and meet the mayor and Lois's other friends. If you haven't read Gone to Green, grab a copy, and while you're at it, get Goodness Gracious Green. These are a perfect summer read. Novel Journey and I give it a high recommendation."

Ane Mulligan- Editor, Novel Journey

Yeah! Looking for some good reads! I just finished "Loving Frank" about Frank Lloyd Wright's Arcaro with Myna Cheney. Came to find out she was a relative to my husband's family by marriage! Great read!

I was wrong, not "Black Coffee." The last book was "And Then There Were None."

I saw "Black Coffee" on stage.

My nifty wife had Santa bring a Kindle Fire HE for Christmas. The first book I downloaded was Georg Hegel' s Philosophy of history. For whatever reason that embarrasses me. But I still watch WWE every week. Have to have balance.
