Secrets She Kept

After her mother's death, Hannah Sterling looks into her family history.  Her search takes her to Germany to meet a grandfather that she never knew she had. As she attempts to learn more about her mother and find closure to the estranged relationship that they had, she is shocked to learn all the secrets that her mother had kept!
I love stories about family secrets and delving into the past, so I knew this one would be right up my alley!  I was right. This book held my attention and combined present day characters with flashbacks and stories of the past. I was completely involved in Hannah's journey to uncover the truth, but I was equally interested in learning her mother's story! And it was quite a story!  If you like family intrigue or WWII stories, I would definitely suggest picking this one up!!


Big Plans!

Now that I am done with school and on to Fieldwork, I have decided to add yet another adventure to our lives. I am planning to be a LulaRoe Consultant!!  I am very excited. I really like the clothing and I love the encouragement and confidence that I have seen in the women of this company! My family is excited to help, and I am hoping that it will be a fun way that we can work together, make a little extra money, and eventually use it as a way to give back. I really want to do at least one fundraiser a month and give all of the profits of that sale to different organizations, missions, etc!  I already have a few in mind that I can't wait to approach about it!!
I will try to post once a week about the company the clothing and my personal business to keep you updated and informed!  I am currently on instagram, lularoe.megan.marie.t And I am working on my facebook group, which will be under the same name, but I am not opening it to public until closer to receiving my initial inventory which probably won't be until July!  I also plan to sell on Periscope and do in-home pop-up boutiques.  Please feel free to comment here or contact me if you are in my area and interested in seeing my inventory or hosting a pop-up (either online or in-home!)  Hostesses earn free clothes!!  Who doesn't love free clothes!?!


Whispers in the Reading room

Well, I thought I posted this review months ago, and here I hadn't even written it yet!!  I enjoyed this book.  It is the third book in the Chicago World Fair Mystery series, but the story stands alone. It is fun and quick, great for a beach book or lounging on the back deck!!

From the back: Just months after the closure of the Chicago World's FAir, librarian Lydia Bancroft finds herself fascinated by a mysterious dark-haired and dark-eyed patron. He has never given her his name; he actually never speaks to a single person. All she knows about him is that he loves books as much as she does.
Only when he rescues her in the lobby of the Hartman Hotel does she discover that his name is Sebastian Marks. She also discovers that he lives at the top of the prestigious hotel and that most everyone in Chicago is intrigued by him.
Lydia and Sebastian form a fragile friendship, but when she discovers that Mr. Marks isn't merely a very wealthy gentleman, but also the proprietor of an infamous saloon and gambling club, she is shocked.
Lydia insists on visiting the club one fateful night and suddenly is a suspect to a murder. She must determine who she can trust, who is innocent, and if Sebastian Marks-- the man so many people fear -- is actually everything her heart believes him to be.
