Reading Update and I’m Having Fun!

Our Trafalgar tour is really fun. And we love our tour guide. If they’re all like this, we’ll probably take another. I still prefer cruising (because of only having to unpack once), but this is pretty nice, too. I don’t have to plan anything or figure out how to get to the next place. That’s all taken care of. Most of the time we have to get our own lunch & dinner, but we’re always someplace that’s in walking distance to a restaurant (or several).

Weather has been decent. It was freezing cold in the morning at Yellowstone but warmed up to the 60s during the day. And we only got rained on once (walking back to the hotel from dinner), so far.

If you’re interested in traveling, going by coach isn’t such a bad way to do it.

Here’s what I read since my last update:

Blurb from Goodreads: Admiral Philip Guthrie is alive and kicking—despite an Imperial kill-order with his name on it. Now he’s leading a rebel alliance against the oppressive Imperial forces. Or he would, if he could get his command ship—the derelict cruiser, Hope’s Folly—functioning. If lack of crew and supplies isn’t trouble enough, his assigned bodyguard turns out to be former Imperial assassin Rya Bennton—the daughter of his best friend and first commanding officer. A man whose death is on Philip’s conscience.
    Rya Bennton has been in love with Philip Guthrie since she was a girl. But can her childhood fantasies survive an encounter with the hardened rebel leader who is now her commanding officer? Or will her determination to destroy the Empire put not only their mission, but their hearts and lives in jeopardy?
    It's an impossible mission on a derelict ship called HOPE'S FOLLY. A man who feels he can't love. A woman who believes she's unlovable. And an enemy who will stop at nothing to crush them both.
My thoughts: I enjoyed this story very much. Lots of action. You don’t need to have read the first two books to read this one, but they’re just as good and you should if you’re interested in the series.

One thing I was surprised is that I didn’t see any bears in Yellowstone. Saw lots of bison, though. I’ve taken lots of pictures (and will take lots more). Maybe next week I’ll be able to post some of them (provided I download my photos to my computer before then).

So… Have you ever taken a coach tour? How was your experience?

Happy Reading!

Bears are smart to hide. Glad you're having fun and good weather.
