Goodreads Monday #travelingsistersread #travelingfriendsread

Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  where we show off a book from our TBR that we are looking forward to reading.

This is our first post for the meme Goodreads Monday.  Since we host two Goodreads Reading Groups we decided to show off two books from our TBR shelves that we will be reading with our groups.

My book to show off, that I will be reading with my Traveling Sisters is Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey.  Norma has already finished this one with our TS, while it’s still sitting on my shelve.  I will be opening up my iPad and diving into this one soon.  I am looking forward to starting this one.  Norma really enjoyed it.


Goodreads synopsis 

Gripping, emotional, and wire-taut, Not Her Daughter raises the question of what it means to be a mother—and how far someone will go to keep a child safe.

Emma Townsend. Five years old. Gray eyes, brown hair. Missing since June.

Emma is lonely. Living with her cruel mother and clueless father, Emma retreats into her own world of quiet and solitude.

Sarah Walker. Successful entrepreneur. Broken-hearted. Kidnapper.

Sarah has never seen a girl so precious as the gray-eyed child in a crowded airport terminal. When a second-chance encounter with Emma presents itself, Sarah takes her—far away from home. But if it’s to rescue a little girl from her damaging mother, is kidnapping wrong?

Amy Townsend. Unhappy wife. Unfit mother. Unsure whether she wants her daughter back.

Amy’s life is a string of disappointments, but her biggest issue is her inability to connect with her daughter. And now Emma is gone without a trace.

As Sarah and Emma avoid the nationwide hunt, they form an unshakeable bond. But what about Emma’s real mother, back at home?

Norma’s choice to show off is from her TBR that she will be reading with our Traveling Friends.  I read this one a while back with our Traveling Sisters and overall we all really enjoyed this one.  She is really looking forward to reading this one with our TF and I look forward to the discussion.


Goodreads Synopsis

Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.

To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne—a socialite and philanthropist—and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale.

Amber’s envy could eat her alive . . . if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life—the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.

With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent.

Have you read either one or both?  Are any on your TBR list?  Drop us a comment!  We love to hear from you!

Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee has a New Look.

Over the weekend Norma and I decided to do a little work on our blog. In the process, I did a little whoops and I changed the theme of our blog.  That’s when Norma a little stressed with changing our theme came in and had to rescue us and a few hours later created our new look. We are curious as to what you all think.  What do you think of our new look?

We also decided since we have a new look maybe it’s time to officially introduce some of our Traveling Sisters to you all.  We are going to start off introducing some of our TS you have probably seen a bit here on our blog.

Most of you know Lindsay our very first Traveling Sister and whose’s reviews you have seen quite regularly on here and who has recently officially joined our blog.

You have also seen Kaceey and Susanne’s reviews here on our blog.  Kaceey was our second TS with Susanne soon after.  And then we started our TS reading group and have grown from there to about 20 active Traveling Sisters who read with us regularly.

We have shared some of Kristin’s reviews here on the blog as well and will be sharing many more of her reviews. She is going to start writing a bit more for our blog too soon. Kristin joined the TS a few months ago.   I have also shared Jan’s reviews.  Jan has been a TS right from the start and we have enjoyed many reads with her.  Recently Christina joined us and we just started posting some of her reviews.

We have shared many links to a few of our TS who have their own blogs and who also read with us regularly. Carol and Marialyce joined the TS soon after we started the group.  Debra joined the group a few months ago.

Carol from Bookaria

Marialyce from yaya_reads

Debra from Open Book Post

We will be introducing more of our TS as we continue on our Travels reading with our Traveling Sisters.

We have had an amazing first year reading with our Traveling Sisters and we look forward to reading and discussing so many more books with them.

What do you think of our new look? Drop us a comment!  We would love to hear from you all!
