I just finished reading Deborah Smith’s A PLACE TO CALL HOME. This 1997 novel has been described as Southern Fiction and Women’s Fiction. I discovered it via Smart Bitches HaBO (Help a Bitch Out)–a feature whereby readers are searching for a book with only a vague description. Commenters will chime in with the title. Over the weekend, the reader was looking for this book. While not strictly a romance, it is deeply romantic. While a sweeping family saga, it is an intimate story about a boy and a girl who grow up to be a man and a woman. It was lyrical and sad and small-town true. Here’s the AMAZON LINK. I borrowed it from the library but I admit to debating whether to find a used copy to add to my personal library.
I’m starting to read Leslie A. Kelly’s DON’T EVER STOP. This is the second book in her futuristic suspense Veronica Sloan series. This is a dark, near-future world after a devastating terrorist attack on Washington DC. Veronica is a cop on the edge–emotionally and technologically. She lost her family in the attacks and has been implanted with some serious techno coolness. There’s a hot FBI agent for the romance though it’s a secondary consideration. If you like JD Robb’s In Death/Eve Dallas series, you should give this one a try. The first book is DON’T LOOK AWAY.
So what are you reading? Or on your wish list? Have a great weekend. I’ll post a quick link for the blog on Sunday. 😀
