What I'm Reading, Summer 2019

When at events, I’m often asked what books I’m currently reading so I think it’s about time I share. Yeah!

Just like my taste in music, my literature collection is eclectic. I’m a serial reader, jumping between books and ideas based on what is happening in my day, week, and life in general. If you like my books, then you will probably like what I read, so check these books out! And don’t be afraid to reach out and let me know what you think!

Last week, I read the entire Deborah Harkness’ Discovery of Witches trilogy. This was totally different from my normal read as this series was more of a marathon than a sprint. Typically I like my books to be fast and action packed. These books, while not devoid of action, were more about world-building and empowerment. Love the premises and the writing was solid. Great read if you are wanting a full-immersion reading experience. What about the prequel, is it worth the read? Let me know!

This week, I’m currently reading two books. One is by a Bozeman, Montana author name Troy Kechely. His book is called Lost Horse Park. So far, I’m loving the tie-ins to all things Montana and the author’s authenticity. You can feel Montana in his writing. Best part? I actually laughed out loud while reading his book. Nothing garners looks from strangers like laughing in a quiet coffee shop. Thanks, Troy.

I’m also about halfway done with Thin Air, by Lisa Gray. This book is a great procedural and well-researched, but kind of a run-of-the-mill story. The mystery is complex, but I’m not quite done reading it…Hoping for some nice twists in the end that will drive my love for the book home. I am sure I won’t be disappointed.

Next up on my TBR list is The Secrets We Bury by one of my favorite authors, Debra Webb. If you haven’t read her stuff, I strongly recommend you pick her books up. She is a fellow Harlequin Intrigue author. After meeting her in person, I read her books and came to like her even more. Not only is she an amazing person, but also a tremendously talented author.

What did you think of these books? Which was your favorite? What are you reading? Any recommendations for me? I’d love to hear!

New Release: Ms. Calculation and Special Guest Debra Webb!

I'm excited to let you know that there is a new release on the horizon--Ms. Calculation, Book one of the Mystery Christmas Series!This year has gone by entirely too fast. If you’re like me, you are meeting the end of summer with equal parts relief and sadness—kids are heading back to school and now comes the days in which work can be done.Here in Montana, our air is filled with smoke and our ability to get out of the house is sporadic at best, which means that in some ways we are already beginning to feel a bit housebound—but I’m not complaining. For me, that means more time to write, to play Legos with my kiddos, and read the books teetering off the top of my TBR stack (here’s looking at you, Angi Morgan and Debra Webb).Last week, in an effort to get out of the smoke, I headed to Green Bay for the Writers Police Academy along with my friends and fellow Harlequin Intrigue authors: Angi Morgan, Rita Herron, Jenna Kernan, and Debra Webb. We had so much fun! (Needless to say, we brought the BOOM to SWAT training!) I’m sure you will be reading some of the fun ideas this conference inspired in my upcoming titles!Debra Webb, Jenna Kernan, Rita HerronThis month also marks the paperback release of Ms. Calculation (the paperback will start appearing at your local stores on August 22 and the e-book will be hitting digital shelves on September 1, 2017)!This is the first book in the four-book Mystery Christmas Series.Here is an excerpt from Ms. Calculation for your enjoyment:Mystery Christmas SeriesYou can get your copies here:  HarlequinAmazonB&NiTunes | KoboGoogle PlayWalmart  | GoodreadsIn addition to my release, Debra Webb and I are working together to get the word out about our books. I LOVE Debra’s works.The Coldest Fear, Debra WebbHere is her excerpt for her new release, The Coldest Fear: 

A killer with nothing left to lose… Detective Bobbie Gentry has a monster to confront. The pain of losing her family and nearly her life to a criminal's vile hunger is still fresh, but now the landscape is different. Now she's not alone. Now she has Nick Shade to trust. Nick treats the terror of his past with vengeance. He's dedicated his life to hunting serial killers, and he'd give his last breath to save Bobbie. When a string of killings bloodies Savannah's elite society and causes cold cases to resurface, Bobbie is captured in a city more haunted than Nick's inescapable nightmares. And as the murderer strikes close, Nick and Bobbie will need to become even closer if they're going to survive.
