This week, I treated myself to a bunch of books I’ve been wanting for a while:
— Pamela Morsi, The Lovesick Cure.
A sweet, heartwarming romance set in the Ozarks. It reminded me of both Kristan Higgins’s and Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s books, with as much focus on the supporting characters as on the central couple. Part of the strength of the book was how well it captured that giddy, beginning of relationship feeling once the hero and heroine realize that they’re it for each other.
— Kathleen Gilles Seidel, Summer’s End.
This book was like crack. I stayed up well into the wee hours on a night when I shouldn’t reading it from cover to cover. Although it has a romance component (a former Olympic gold medalist and the son of the woman her widower father has just married), it’s really the portrait of a family learning how to heal and reunite during a time of stress and change.
— Rosemary Clement-Moore, Texas Gothic.
I hoard my Rosemary Clement-Moore books, trying to eke them out. Since she has a new one coming out in May, I decided I could finally indulge and let myself read Texas Gothic. Like the Maggie Quinn books, this one features a sensible, smart-talking heroine who finds herself dealing with the abnormal. Perfect for just before Halloween….
— Barbara Michaels, The Walker in Shadows.
And since we’re getting into my Halloween theme-reading time, I trotted out a favorite old Barbara Michaels to start my ghost story marathon going: unquiet spirits from the American Civil War haunt a pair of Gothic houses in Maryland.
