New Book Releases

In Texas it’s too hot to spend much time outside. This is the hottest summer I can remember. So many days in a row with temperatures 100 or more make me want to sit in the air conditioning, drink iced tea, and read a good book. Here are some new ones you may not have heard about yet or eagerly anticipated:

Smokin’ Seventeen: A Stephanie Plum Novel, Janet Evanovich

V is for Vengeance (Kinsey Millhone Myster), Sue Grafton

Learning (Bailey Flanigan Series), Karen Kingsbury

Cart Blanche (latest James Bond), Jeffery Deaver

Sisterhood Everlasting: A Novel (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants), Ann Brashares

Christmas books

I’ve noticed more Christmas themed books in fiction over the past couple of years. Debbie Macomber and Janet Evanovich are two authors in particular I’ve read. What fun to write a book in part of a series that focuses on the Christmas season. I hope to join that group of authors who write with my favorite season in mind in 2009 along with my other books.

I’d love to hear from any of you about what books you’re reading this Christmas season.

Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
