Bethany Claire is at it again, In Due Time is the next installment in the Morna’s Legacy series and doesn’t disappoint! [goodreads | Audible]
Jeffrey’s done everything for Grace and Cooper, but as Cooper watches his dad struggle to find love in the past, he calls in help from everyone’s favorite witch. Morna is back at it again. Setting the right wheels in motion for her family to find the loves of their lives, and Jeffrey is no different. Kathleen has heard so much about Jeffrey and over the years her desire for the man she’s never met has only increased, but when she finally does meet him, will he be as wonderful as she’s imagined?
Thank goodness for more Cooper! I love this kid. He’s a wonderful comic relief character, tearjerker, goofball, everything. A homerun character. With this being a novella, there is a bit of instant love, but that can’t really be helped. The transitions from US to Scotland and present to past are seamless. Additional comedic relief is provided by Jane, Cooper’s Aunt and Grace’s sister, and if I had to hazard a guess, she’ll be our next novel romance.
A new castle is introduced, and even a cozy cottage that ground the story and pulls it out of the Castle for a stint.
Lily Collingwood’s Cooper and Jane… two peas in a pod. Cooper’s child-like and adorable voice matched well with Jane’s up-to-no-good one. As usual, the recording quality was great with no hum or distortion and made the entire focus on the story.
Long time no talk. That's my fault, and I apologize. A lot has been going on in my world lately and I felt it was time to make an official statement to you of where I've been, what I've been working on (an avoiding), and what's on the horizon.
The long and the short of it is I am massively burned out. On writing, on streaming, on everything really. In November I started a new job, in December I had pneumonia, in January I re-evaluated my writing habits, and in March I starting the process of buying a house. As you can see... I've been busy. I decided in April (day 2 of Camp NaNoWriMo actually) that I was too burned out to continue without some R&R. So that's what I am doing.
I've started playing Dungeons and Dragons again, this time as the Dungeon Master and it has helped to reinvigorate my storytelling. I am planning some neat stuff with that in the coming months, and a short story from our campaign is even published on Channillo if you're interested.
The first week in June I'll be closing on a house and get this, I'll have my very own office (with a fireplace!) that I'll be setting up as a library, writing den, and twitch streaming studio. You can probably see I'm a little excited.
I have a book review due next week, but other than that, it'll be light on the blogging/reviewing until closer to the end of June. Don't think I've abandoned any of you though, just because I'm not actively blogging or writing here, doesn't mean I'm not planning.
As always, you're the reason I write, so thanks for sticking with me.
