Saw my cardiologist on Monday. She wants to wait until after my scheduled imaging (for my kidneys and lungs) in November before she looks into me having heart surgery. But, she did say she would talk to the cardiac surgeon to see what my options are after that. So… more waiting. Granted, I would prefer surgery (or whatever) to happen after our March cruise, but it’s the not knowing that I don’t like.
Other than that, I’m doing fine. No changes. That’s good.

Blurb from book: Lydia Susi is passionate about protecting wolves in their natural habitat. When a hotel chain develops a tract of land next to the preserve, Lydia is one of the most vocal opponents of the project—and becomes a target.
One night, a shadowy figure in the forest threatens Lydia’s life, and a new hire at the Wolf Study Project comes from out of nowhere to save her. Daniel Joseph is both mysterious and someone she instinctively wants to trust. But is he hiding something?
As the stakes get higher and one of Lydia’s colleagues is murdered, she must decide how far she will go to protect the wolves. Then a shocking revelation about Daniel challenges Lydia’s reality in ways she could never have predicted. Some fates demand courage, while others require even more, with no guarantees. Is she destined to have true love…or will a soul-shattering loss ruin her forever?
My thoughts: This new series is set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world and a character from that series is in this. Not yet sure how it all connects, as this particular book doesn’t wrap up that storyline. Yeah, there’s a little bit of a cliffhanger…for the series. But it wasn’t an irritating one for me. Or maybe I just like J.R. Ward too much to fuss about it? Maybe… But I enjoyed this and look forward to reading more.
My walking is taking a hit this week. Doctor appointments on Monday and Wednesday mornings, and I had to pick up my daughter Tuesday morning. I refuse to walk later in the day, as the temps have been in the 90s (and will continue to be that way for the rest of the week). I like summer, but 90 degrees is ridiculous. Hopefully I’ll get back to walking tomorrow.
I recorded a TV series this past spring: “Debris.” I thought it was one of those one-season kind of series, so I waited until the whole series was aired before watching and never bothered looking up anything (so as not to be spoiled). Well, I finished watching it Monday night, where it ended on a huge cliffhanger. Then I checked and saw it wasn’t renewed for a season 2. WTH??? To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I wish I’d never watched it now.
So… Are you as gun-shy about starting a new series on television like I am? I really don’t watch as much TV as I used to. Mainly because it seems like nothing lasts anymore. Or more importantly, nothing ends properly.
