About a month ago I read Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio and loved it. Last night I started her book, Violets of March, and read until 4:00 a.m. because I couldn't put it down until I knew how it ended. I enjoyed it even more than Blackberry Winter. I have my name of the waiting list at my library for her third book, Bungalow.
I saw Safe Haven, a movie based on the last Nicholas Sparks book, on Valentine's Day. It was very good. The setting was a small NC coastal town and the scenery was beautiful. The story is not the typical Nicholas Sparks love story and has some violent scenes. It's probably my favorite of the movies made from his books.
