Book Review: The Marriage Pact

The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond will be available July 25, 2017. 

Marriage is forever, right? What would you do if you were gifted "the pact" as a wedding present and asked to sign and contract to follow the rules of a mysterious group that claims to have zero divorces among all the members? Alice and Jake do just that, but as they bend and break the rules of "the pact" they begin to see just how serious the group takes their infractions. Can their marriage survive? Can Jake and Alice survive?

I loved this book, I am not usually drawn to this type of story but once I got two pages in I just had to know how it ended. There were many twists and turns that made me wonder exactly how the whole plot would come together in the end. I was not disappointed but I was quite surprised.

I have already recommended this book to a few friends, and I think it has moved into that rare pile of books that I would actually reread.

Summer Vacation

It's that time again! School is out as of yesterday and we are ready for some summer fun. This year is going to be a little different since in the past the kids have done summer school, I made the decision to keep them out so we could hopefully take a longer trip in July. We have a few options on the table and I have a lot of thinking to do on the matter still.

So how are those kids?
Aedan won most artistic in his second grade class, and drew a killer pic of Rick and Morty on his award.

Avery graduated from kindergarten, and misses his teacher already.

Freya turned two and is talking so much now, she is such a bright girl.
