Samantha Marie Ramsden has three brothers. Craig, John and Matt. When tragedy strikes their family, Craig takes on the task of becoming his siblings legal guardian.

{Weekly Wrap Up} Weeks of March 8-22th

Sunday Post is Hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves is Hosted by Tynga’s Reviews Hey guys! How has your week been? I skipped last week because it was pretty hectic. Both my dad and my grandpa (his dad) were in the hospital with asthmatic pneumonia. It was pretty scary. My dad went in a week a half ago and the day he was released, my grandpa had fallen and had to go into the hospital. My dad is out and on the mend and my grandpa is still recovering but is doing a lot better. So I have been traveling and very busy and very stressed lately. I have also gotten a good amount of books. These books are from the past 2 and 1/2 weeks. I haven’t had much time to read books for #TakeControlTBR challenge because I have been traveling back and forth between my parents home and work (about 3 hours away) a lot so I haven’t had too much extra time… Read more »

Bittersweet by Kimberly Loth Pages: 183 Published on: March 21, 2015 Every Sunday Savannah Ray gets an email from her dead dad. She doesn’t know how the emails work but she’s finally ready to start looking for answers. To find those answers she has to go to the one place she swore she’d never set foot in after he died—Haunted Valley, the amusement park. Once there and on the hunt for answers she is distracted by the charming Dallas and falls hard for him. When the answers she finds aren’t what she expected and Dallas betrays her, Savannah must make a choice—succumb to the insanity that destroyed her father or find the strength to rise above it. We met at Cracker Barrel, which was just mom indulging me. My favorite meal in the whole world was biscuits and gravy from Cracker Barrel. If I could I’d subsist on chocolate alone, but I tried that right after Dad died and nearly ended up in the hospital. “Grant just texted me that… Read more »
