Well, I made it, and I’m currently reading Snowed In by Christina Bartolomeo(hopefully I spelled that right, as I don’t have the book by me) It’s not what I would consider romance, though that’s the way it was billed. I would consider it more a piece of women’s fiction. It’s my first read by this author, and I’m not yet finished, so haevn’t formed a complete opinion.

OK I just figured out how to get signed up for this blog so here I am. Since I was already a Blogger member it was pretty easy. I’m going to try to post these weekly.

In this one, Brenna Lyons is telling two stories in one as well. I’ve only read a few of hers so far, but of the three I read, two were like this, where half the story is about one couple and half the story is about another, though they both tie in together. This book tells the continuing story of siblings Hunter and Erin Konig. Now for my review to get written. LOL I started Loki’s Sin by Saje Williams a few days ago and it is quite interesting. I guess I’d class it as an urban fantasy, with an interesting paranormal thread through it. I’m looking forward to reading farther in this one. I finished Celtic Fire by Joy Nash, her debut Dorchester book and it was really good as well. Now I just need to…

On a recent “TRASH” trip to St. Louis, I managed to pick up books by two of my childhood — well, young girl in the 60s/70s — favorites: Jane Aiken Hodge and Mary Stewart. Not only did it bring back memories of reading in a sun warmed room, or dusty hideaway, but also memories of adventure outside the farming community I lived. Mary Stewart brought a sophisticated international world into existence for me, especially with her tale of Greek Isles, Corfu and the dangers of the Cold War. Wildfire at Midnight was one of my first tastes of Greece and I wanted so badly to go and stay in a villa, bronze in the warm sun, swim in the blue seas, and eat olives. Surely the Greek olives were better than the ones stuffed with pimentos and hauled out in the relish dish for big Pennsylvania Dutch dinners at our house. And I understand they even used olive oil, which was definitely NOT an ingredient in our Mennonite/Amish cooking! Ah, what Stewart exposed me to dream about! The Spell of Mary Stewart is a book club (Nelson, Doubleday) hardback without dust jacket, published in 1968 with three of Stewart’s classics:…
