Whispoers by Cindy Stark

Whispers (An Argent Springs Novel) Small Town Romance by [Stark, Cindy]

Don't you love it when you find a new book and it pulls you in and you can't put it down until you reach the end? I found Whispers by Author Cindy Stark and loved it. It was the type of book I couldn't quit, stayed up most of the night, reading until I finished it.

Here's the blurb on Whispers--

Erin Silvestri longs for a place to call home, and she thinks she’s found it in the small mining town of Argent Springs, Colorado. Towering mountains and golden sunshine greet her when she visits her aunt’s Victorian brothel-turned-bed and breakfast. She soon discovers it’s not the former madam of the house who haunts her most. It’s the off-limits, devastatingly handsome mechanic who moonlights as her aunt’s handyman.

Rick Hartigan wants nothing more than to do his job while he awaits the return of the woman he loves. But his employer insists it’s time to move on, and she’s hell-bent on pairing him with her too-tempting niece.

Just when they both start to believe they might have a future, Rick’s former girlfriend returns, and Erin fears she may lose everything she’s come to love.

If you have a chance, pick up a copy. You will be glad you did.

Happy Reading!

Helpful Hints

I bought a small pocket calendar with several helpful hints each month which I've enjoyed. I thought I'd share a few with you.

1. Use rubbing alcohol as a permanent marker remover. Pour on a cotton ball and rub on stains.

2. Use onions as a basement deodorizer. Cut the onion in half and put on a plate and leave overnight.

3. Remove gunk from your iron with dryer sheets. With low setting, rub iron over the dryer sheet.

4. Use coaster under jars of messy honey, jam or olive oil.

5. Salt and lemon juice mixed together remove mildew stains.

6. Use a muffin tin to serve condiments at an outdoor party.

7. A frozen saturated sponge in a Ziplock bag makes an icepack that won't drip.

8. Use dryer sheets to wipe down a smelly, wet dog for a springtime scent.

9. Pour a bit of vinegar into your wash with detergent. It brightens colors and eliminates odors.

10. To get rid of the bouquet residue at the bottom of a vase, fill vase with water and add two anti-acid tablets.

Kind of interesting. I haven't tried them all so if you do, I'd love to hear if it worked. Perhaps it will give you more time to do what you love -- if it's reading, I have a new book released in April - Cherry Wood Place. Give it a try in your spare time!

Happy Reading!
