My list is short this time, because it’s only been two weeks since my last reading overview. Last week was spring break for all the colleges around here. Despite having a to-do list that covered an entire notebook page, I took the time to finish two books by women I know personally.
Norse Jewel by Gina Conkle
Gina is a member of my local RWA chapter. She writes historical romances about Vikings as well as stories set in the English Georgian era. After reading some of her blog posts about research (including making Viking cheese!) I decided to read one of her Viking romances. I purchased Norse Jewel and read it on my Kindle app whenever I needed a break from writing or schoolwork. This is a gripping tale of betrayal, loyalty, and honor. I asked Gina to visit us the next time we have Guest Author week, so I’ll be able to share more!
Cowboys, Castles, and Cradles by Loralee Lillibridge
Loralee is another member of my local RWA chapter. She was my guest here at 4F1H almost two years ago with her first cozy mystery. With this new book, Loralee returns to her Texas roots. I started reading this on my phone while waiting for my husband at doctor appointments and finished it in the evenings this past week (when I should have been writing). Whit is a real hero in that he steps in to help when he sees it’s needed, but he’s also secure enough to listen to others. Gracie is a strong heroine – just the kind I love to read about! Can’t wait to see what Loralee comes up with next!
Our RWA chapter is quite prolific, so I plan to continue reading books by its members. I’ve already got my next reading projects all picked out!
