Weekend Reads: Fields Where They Lay

Loved this well-written adventure about safe cracker Junior Bender.   Working retail, getting me to read anything about the holidays is a feat. This great story was a refreshing tonic on my last airplane ride.     Keebe McIntyre's Books   PS - Pete calls this the perfect Christmas story.

TRUST ME…YOU’LL LOVE THIS: baubles, bangles, and beads

My sisters and I have loved accessories for as long as I can remember. Our creative mother was a master at the art of accessorizing.

Helen Ellis's Southern Lady Code

Weekend Reads: Southern Lady Code

Yes, this book of essays is absolutely hilarious and full of Southern witticisms and pecularities, but it is also highly intelligent.
