Friday Finds -- 2/18

This meme is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Happy Friday! My find this week is The Secret of Everything by Barbara O'Neal. Here is the Barnes and Noble description:

At thirty-seven, Tessa Harlow is still working her way down her list of goals to “fall in love and have a family.” A self-described rolling stone, Tessa leads hiking tours for adventurous vacationers–it’s a job that’s taken her around the world but never a step closer to home. Then a freak injury during a trip already marred by tragedy forces her to begin her greatest adventure of all. Located high in the New Mexico mountains, Las Ladronas has become a magnet for the very wealthy and very hip, but once upon a time it was the setting of a childhood trauma Tessa can only half remember. Now, as she rediscovers both her old hometown and her past, Tessa is drawn to search-and-rescue worker Vince Grasso. The handsome widower isn’t her type. No more inclined to settle down than Tessa, Vince is the father of three, including an eight-year-old girl as lost as Tessa herself. But Tessa and Vince are both drawn to the town’s most beloved eatery–100 Breakfasts–and to each other. For Tessa, the restaurant is not only the key to the mystery that has haunted her life but a chance to find the home and the family she’s never known.

I read The Lost Recipe of Happiness by Barbara O'Neal and really enjoyed it (click to read my review). Can't wait to read this one! What did you find this week?

Wonderful review - O'Neal's book looks excellent. I read your review on her other book and would love to get both. Thanks for sharing :}. My recent find is called, Major Dream: From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard Ph.D. by Jin Kyu Robertson, Ph.D. Robertson has achieved the American Dream by working her way up from a factory to the U.S. Army as a major then earning her Ph.D. from Harvard. All this as a single mom as well. Her story inspired me and motivated me to achieve my own dreams. I highly recommend this one.

Oh wow this looks really good! It looks like it has the right amount of beauty and adventure and romance without focusing too heavily or lightly on any one subject. I love outdoorsy stuff!
