My friends Jane and Jenna both posted about their delight in reading this weekend. I spent days reading too! I took seven books with me for the holiday weekend. Good thing! I ended up with a sprained ankle so spent more time laying around than planned!
Here’s three novels I recommend: (I was rather amused they all were generational family stories since that’s not what I expected from reading the blurbs!) These are all new-to-me authors and have extensive back-lists.
Skinny Dipping by Connie Brockway – Full of great visuals, quirky characters, pampered dogs, a few voices from beyond, and the reader gets to stay with them through all four seasons. I liked that because it offered a greater level of character development than many novels set in a time frame of a few weeks.
Temptation Ridge by Robyn Carr – Book 6 in the series and I didn’t have problems meeting a whole town of people and keeping them straight. It was fun because there were so many stories going on. 🙂
The Lost Hours by Karen White: This was a fascinating story with layers upon layers of secrets, injuries, mysterious deaths and historical twists from 70 years ago, still affecting lives today… The writing style is awesome.
