TGIF! You must have heard the saying “No good deed goes unpunished.” It is something we would say frequently at my old office because it was always true.
My story this week is that I finally paid off my iPhone and decided to surprise my youngest and give her my iPhone. I got myself the new iPhone and gave my daughter my old iPhone which was an upgrade from her LG budget phone. She was very excited. After downloading and playing with both phones for most of Sunday, I needed to hook up to my computer so I could re-download my review audiobooks from Tantor. Of course I avoid updating my iTunes since it screws everything up every time I do it. But because I had a new phone, it wasn’t syncing with my old version of iTunes. So I was forced to update everything. Afterwards, it required my computer to reboot, so I did. And that was the end of that. It wouldn’t come back up. Updating iTunes killed my computer. My husband’s friend is a computer guy and he breathed some life back into it but it is only on life support for now so I can download everything. I am told that if it gets shuts down, it won’t ever come back. So much for doing something nice.
This is my long-winded attempt to let you know that I need to get a new hard drive and have it installed and cross my fingers that I can get everything up and running again. I have a ton a reviews I am bursting to write down and I might have to resort to paper and pen. I have a WordPress App but I don’t think I can deal with tapping them out on my phone. If it gets quiet around here, I will be back…eventually…hopefully.
So until I get my digital world straightened out, I will leave you with this week’s giveaway which looks like a really sweet cowboy romance.
Just leave a comment to be entered.
Giveaway open to U.S. residents, 18 years and older. Giveaway ends Thursday, February 14th.
Ryder Copeland is an accomplished architect and one heck of a father…not to mention tall and sexy. He’s everything a hero should be, and Lord knows, Maisy Kelly has read enough of her great-aunt Eloise’s romance novels to recognize one when she sees one. But like all fairy tales, Maisy can’t help but wonder if this Prince Charming is too good to be true…
Ryder is drawn to the shy, curly haired professor who hires him to convert the Victorian house she’s inherited from her aunt into a romance bookstore. Attracted to a woman for the first time since his divorce, Ryder finds himself wishing for a future with Maisy that he knows is impossible. Ryder has never wavered from his plan to leave the small town of Fairdale, North Carolina, so he can give his daughter the life she deserves. But suddenly he’s not so sure. And the closer he gets to Maisy, the harder it’s going to be to walk away.
