Book Launch: The Marriage Lie

Wednesday evening my husband was kind enough to drive me to The Hunter Collective in Atlanta for the book launch for Kimberly Belle’s newest book, The Marriage Lie! We arrived there early and I was thankful for that. I got to meet Kimberly, talk with her, and get all three of her books signed!

Iris and Will have been married for seven years, and life is as close to perfect as it can be. But on the morning Will flies out for a business trip to Florida, Iris’s happy world comes to an abrupt halt: another plane headed for Seattle has crashed into a field, killing everyone on board and, according to the airline, Will was one of the passengers.

Grief stricken and confused, Iris is convinced it all must be a huge misunderstanding. Why did Will lie about where he was going? And what else has he lied about? As Iris sets off on a desperate quest to uncover what her husband was keeping from her, the answers she finds shock her to her very core.

Kimberly is a super nice lady!

My husband counted around 50 people that showed up for the book launch. Kimberly was a very popular lady! She had so many people coming out to congratulate and support her! We were able to meet her husband, whom she refers to as ‘The Dutchman’ and also her father.

There were various goodies to eat and lots of bubbly to drink!

   

There were souvenir soaps given out that were provided by Sweet Peach Wax & Sugaring Studio.

Kimberly also did a reading from The Marriage Lie. I really wish I was caught up on books to read for reviews, because if I was I would definitely be picking up this book now!

Cobb County Book Sale Fall 2016

 stock-vector-sale-sale-sale-offer-sale-sale-card-sale-sticker-sale-label-hot-sale-banner-sale-summer-440992372

The Cobb County Library has their three day book sale every March and October. All profits from the sale go to buying more items for the 16 libraries in Cobb County. The book sale was this past weekend and it was my third time attending the sale.

I go on Sunday since it is BYOB (Bring Your Own Box) Day! For $20 you can fill up a ‘box’ of any size! And they mean ‘box’ loosely. I have seen people bring trashcans: They fill them up, go to their car, empty the trashcan, then go back in!

 Sunday at the Book Sale:

I was ready with my suitcase to find some treasures!:

The book sale began at 1pm, and I got there a little after 12:30. The line wasn’t too long when I got there as you can see:

Camping, Books, and a Doe!

The hubby and I went camping at McKinney Campground for a couple of days this week.  It was nice to get away, but it was hot!  We won’t camp again in hot weather until one day we can afford a popup camper or better! We are in Georgia, therefore we need air conditioning! We were the only ones there without some sort of camper.

This is our camp site!  It was nice and larger than expected.

Here is the Hubby and I:

Of course I read:

I finished these two books in the great outdoors.  Reviews will come next week.

Teasers on the reviews: The Middle Place received 2.5 stars and The Woman in Cabin 10 received 4 Stars. The Woman in Cabin 10 was an audiobook.

It’s a hard life working on reviews while on vacation:

We made a friend while we were camping. A sweet doe! I would call to her and her tail would wag like a dog’s! She was so sweet! She visited us three times in one day!

Here is a video of one of her visits. She got so close to us!:
