This week I'm the featured author over at CRAFTIE Ladies of Suspense. Check the blog frequently for an interview with heroine Dani Richards, review of Deadly Exposure, and more.
And Gina Conroy has hosted me today with a great interview -- she asks tough questions, folks -- at Portrait of a Writer Interrupted. Gina led my crit group when I was writing Deadly Exposure, so saw those first chapters more than she ever wanted to and still likes the final version. Gotta love that!
Also last week, I read three fantastic books. I'll write full reviews later, but wanted you to know if you're looking for some fresh fiction to try here are three I highly recommend:
The Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen: set during the early 1800s in London, this books tells the compelling story of a young lady who finds herself pregnant, disowned, and alone in the world. I wasn't sure I'd get into this one -- hence it sat on my TBR pile for months. But once I picked it up, I could not put it down. The story and writing were compelling. And the author kept me guessing until the very end on how it would turn out.
The Convenient Groom by Denise Hunter: This book follows Surrender Bay but stands totally on its own. I'm not even sure characters carry-over. But this book was amazing. A sweet romance that had me rooting so hard for the hero, and grieving with the heroine. Denise pulled on all of my heart strings and brought this book in for a very compelling ending.
And For Better or For Worse by Diann Hunt. This book is a gem. Take a divorce attorney and the owner of a wedding chapel, add in their children who want to get married, and you have a recipe for fun. The sense of humor in this book is great. The romance real. And the characters aren't your normal 20-somethings. This is the first of Diann's books that I've read, and now I understand why everyone raves about her style. This is a great read and fresh addition to romance.
