And it’s four stars from RT Book Reviews! Can you hear me squeeing? Here’s what they said:
SUNSET BAY SANCTUARY by Roxanne Snopek
“While the romance in this story is a sweet, slow burn, the pages will keep turning as the characters careen from crisis to crisis. Aiden’s near-breakdown is a masterful, empathetic portrayal of a strong person in the grip of a mental health low point, and the author skillfully delivers the message that we all have cracks in our outer façade. A supporting cast of loyal friends sustains the feel-good embers, and animal lovers will delight in the detailed personalities of Haylee’s service dogs in training. Sunset Bay Sanctuary is everything you want in a cozy small-town romance. It does deal with the sensitive subject of adoption, and while some might find it biased in one direction, it does not detract from the story.”- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
SURVIVING A LIVE-IN HOME RENOVATION PROJECT
It’s the Year of Renovations, at Casa Snopek. Phase 1 was creating a small guest suite, complete with bathroom and kitchenette (sink/bar fridge/counter), which is where we’re living while the rest gets done.The rest, meaning the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, carpets, paint… really, it would have been easier to move.
Anyway. It all began in late July and won’t be done until early December. Hopefully. Maybe. Don’t really know.
That’s a long time to be without a kitchen, folks. At first, it was fun eating take-out and fast food and checking out the local restaurants. But that’s a) expensive b) dangerous for the waistline and c) tiring.
So I bought us an Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it’s the best kitchen device I’ve ever had.
I LOVE this baby! The first day I made chicken soup – awesome – and rice pudding – the best I’ve ever made. This, my friends, is the way to survive a live-in home renovation project. Do you have yours yet?
