We're Back and Vacation Time Reading
We arrived in Massachusetts earlier today. As always, the Outer Banks was fabulous. I highly recommend it to families of all sizes, especially those who enjoy water sports, fishing, and local arts and culture.
As I mentioned at Book Tours and More this week, this was partially a working vacation. In addition to writing projects and virtual book tours, I read and reviewed the following books:
Prairie Tale by Melissa Gilbert (reviewed July 5th)
The Last Operative by Jerry B. Jenkins (reviewed July 11th)
State of Reservations, Book 3 in the JGDS series by Elysabeth Eldering (reviewed July 12th)
Beautiful Malice by Rebecca James (review will appear at Book Tours and More on July 29th)
Plan B by Steven Verrier (review will be posted at The Children's and Teens' Book Connection on July 30th)
I also read Lingering Spirit by Marilyn Meredith, Evenings on Dark Island by Rhett DeVane and Larry Rock, Bowdancer III--Warrior Women by Janie Franz, and Capturing Karma by K.M. Daughters, the fourth book in The Sullivan Boys series. Reviews for three of these will appear soon. I am writing up a cover blurb for Bowdancer III.
It was wonderful to be away, but it is nice to come home and be in a familiar place where you can relax comfortably without dreading a long ride afterwards.
Look for news on our big Summer Book Giveaway coming soon!
