  1. Thanks for the shoutout, Tamara! We need to read Dear Wife together this weekend by our respective pools, lol (well if it doesn’t rain here, which I think it will)! Can’t wait for Meet Me in Monaco; I know it will be amazing. Those cats…hoping they find their way home. Hugs. β™₯

    • Ok I NEED to look at the book and text you about the chapters. Sorry- I’m working on a list of 5 million things to do. 😦 I am VERY excited about MONACO. I *Think* there has been talk about rain, but if it’s nice- I’ll be at pool with book (and maybe wine πŸ˜‰

      And those cats. Gosh, I miss them so. They are causing me gray hair.

      • Don’t stress about it! I can easily read it in a day…well not tomorrow since it’s my 8 yr olds 9th bday party. But I can read it on Sunday in one sitting because it’s really short. Just let me know-I can definitely start it tonight or tomorrow night though since it’s my last June ARC that I need to read. We could just read half and message each other when we reach that point unless you want to? I might start Monaco next week! Sounds so good! 😊😘

      • Aww, me too! 😘 And I got Never Have I Ever in the mail today (so excited ❀🀩) and I’d say we buddy read it together but you read it lol! We definitely need to do it again!

      • Oh my gosh! Me too! I was over the moon since I didn’t expect it at all-I told you I had NO clue what was coming from Harper, lol. Yes, definitely! I’ve got 16 ARCS for July alone (help!) but dialed it way back for Aug on since school starts back up. πŸ™‚ I’ll message you sometime this weekend. β™₯

    • You are so welcome!! Callie is LOVING hearing all the “beautiful Callie” comments she’s receiving πŸ™‚
      I think MONACO will be great!!!!! Happy weekend sweet friend!

    I need some pool time and plan to get some next week! Sounds like the perfect reading spot. Enjoy ❀

  3. As you may already know, Meet Me in Monaco is on my list too!

    I’m sorry to hear that Jerry is now missing as well. I hope you find both of your boys soon.
