Inside Out (Brown Siblings #3) by Lauren Dane

WORTH THE WAIT

Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she’s spent each day putting her life back together. Once vibrant and outgoing, she’s needed to reclaim the best parts of who she was while retaining the hard won lessons. There hasn’t been room for any romantic entanglements, even if she were ready. Still, it didn’t mean she had to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark and Tattooed himself.

Security professional Andrew Copeland isn’t quite sure when his jones for the lovely and decidedly skittish Ella developed. He’s known her for years, has watched her triumph over the pain she’d been dealt. Cope is no stranger to women, but he knows the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to …

Explore This! Portland, Maine

I’ve just finished reading Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick and wanted to feature the town in her novel: Coldwater, Maine. It turns out that this is a fictional town. It would have been nice to feature the boardwalks, beaches and amusements parks as described by Becca but no such luck.

It’s often been a thought of mine to hit the road, travelling down through the Canadian East Coast, then hopping the board and trekking down the coastline of the States. A stop in Maine would be a must for me to get that authentic Maine lobster dinner. Yum!

I’m also a sucker for lighthouses, so you’ll find a few in our travels this week. The funny thing is that in doing my research, I found the picture showing the crash of the Annie Maguire, as commemorated on …
