Summer Reading

I read all the time, but certain books seem made for summer. Have you ever read anything by Luanne Rice?

Most of her books are set in New England by the beach. Very good stories. This one isn't new, but I hadn't read it yet. Quite a tearjerker!

I just finished A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. If you like vampire stories, you'll love this! It is really a good love story. And since Ms. Harkness is history professor, there is a lot of interesting factual history thrown in. Makes for a believable story - but not scary.

Right now I'm reading Hiss of Death by Rita Mae Brown and her cat Sneaky Pie. I know, weird, right? But her books are great mysteries, and if you like cats, dogs and horses, you'll love them. The only problen I have with this author's books is that she gets a little preachy about whatever topic she is into at the moment. Fine if you agree, easily overlooked if you don't.

So, what are you reading? I'm always on the lookout for a good book!

Nothing at the moment but you sure make me want to get a book from the library this week. We go all the time but with my 3 yr old it is hard to get out of the kids section.

No I've never read one of her books but I've heard of her. I'm reading a vintage book called Celia's House and some gardening books.

My sister introduced me to the Laura Childs tea shop mystery series. I'm loving them. I do enjoy a good murder mystery, especially with a cup of tea and a few recipes thrown in for good measure. Cheers!

Love Luanne Rice books!
I think I have them all, and they are just as enjoyable to read the second or third time :)
I've not had a lot of time for reading this's a bummer. Hoping to carve out some time in the Fall :)
Have a great day....and happy reading !

I used to read Danielle Steel. I have a whole collection of her books and I had promised myself that after the children were through with school, I would take time to read them......have not done that yet. I have not heard of Luanne Rice, however she sounds wonderful. I also love Debbie MacComber.......the Blossom Street Series. Have a great week. blessings,Kathleen

Oh how I wish I had time to read...I keep hoping that someday I will. For now, though the list gets longer and longer. I will add the Deborah Harkness book to the list, too!!!
