Book On Tour….Lost and Found Life of Rosy Bennett

Today we are part of the blog tour for a great book!  The Lost and Found Life of Rosy Bennett by Jan Birley.  I’m very excited to help promote this book and Jan because I really enjoyed this book so much.

ThJan Birley Author Photoe Lost and Found Life of Rosy Bennet is Jan’s debut novel and it’s so polished and well written that I expect great things from her in the future.  It’s hard to believe this is her first published work.

You can find out more about Jan on her author website or find her on  Face Book




I admit I’m jaded and this kind of book isn’t normally what I pick up to read.  But when I was asked if I was interested in reviewing it, I sort of had a Shonda Rimes moment and said Yes!  I’m glad I did.  Jan proves that women’s fiction can be well written with good characters that have depth.  It’s not all hunky dudes and women that need saving.

Rosy certainly has her dilemmas and yes, she does have a romantic interest, but what’s great about Rosy is that she’s got it all covered.  She’s picking herself up and dusting herself off and getting on with life after tragedy hits home.   She’s real.

I hope each of my readers will grab this book – even if it’s not something you would normally read.  It’s worth it.

At-Home Day

This Monday is of the cold, gray and dreary sort.  It’s been snowing and then raining all day.  It’s a great day to curl up and read.  The other evening I broke out my great grandmothers china tea set and had a fancy cuppa and a nosh.


I have declined to go up to the Y today…yes, out of sheer laziness.  Well, that and a weather induced headache.  Somehow I don’t think pounding the treadmill is going to help the throbbing in my skull.

Tomorrow is an exciting day!  Sassy Cat Chat will be participating in our first Blog Tour!  Expect to see our regular post tomorrow and an additional post for the book tour for The Widow.  Several books are celebrating pub day tomorrow so be sure to check out our daily post to get the low down.

Yesterday was Valentines Day…it’s not really a big deal holiday for me and the hubs. Some years we do gifts or dinners. Some years we just opt out. We spent the afternoon running errands – it was nice to just spend the day together.  The main objective was to re-stock the kitty pantry!


Mission accomplished!  This will keep the felines happy for awhile.  They get a can of something most everyday between the four of them.  Yes, our kitties eat canned tuna from Whole Foods.  The particularly love the Skipjack.  Spoiled. Rotten.

Off to take care of this headache!  Happy Monday
