Guests / December 27, 2009

The Daily DoseSmattering of Romance, Paranormal, and General Observations Happy Sunday everyone! Sorry for no Smackdown yesterday, I was sucked in by a story that I couldn’t stop writing and when I finally did take a break from that, I got sucked in by a book that I couldn’t put down. On our post-holiday trip to the bookstore, what to my wondering eyes should appear but Carrie Vaughn’s latest Kitty Norville novel: KITTY’S HOUSE OF HORRORS. The book is scheduled for release January 4, 2010 according to Amazon so I snatched that little Christmas present right up for myself. Read more including Heather’s take on the latest Kitty… Visit to learn more about books and authors.

Sara Edmonds | Taking An Inexpensive Vacation To An Exotic Locale
Uncategorized / December 26, 2009

With winter here, I have often wished to be in a nice tropical locale for a few weeks. I realized though that while I was reading TWENTIES GIRL by Sophie Kinsella, that the best vacation is right in my own books. As some of you may have read, I very rarely notice or need a lot of location in the books I read. The one thing I do notice though, are the locations that if I hit the lotto today, I would be on a jet plane in a minute. I have always loved the way that Nora Roberts intertwines her characters and makes them one with the places they are. Her favorite far off locale is Ireland. TEARS OF THE MOON was one such book that after reading, made me want to go and spend some time in Ireland. Susan Elizabeth Phillips‘ novel, BREATHING ROOM, has my favorite all time location–Italy. Of course, being half Italian, I am always partial to anyone who can place the background setting of Italy into the story in such a way as I look forward to the next destination. Katie MacAlister sets her Aisling Grey series on the streets of London, with some…

Dewey by Vicky Myron, Bret Witter The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can’t even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa. Dewey’s story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. He was found the next morning by library director, Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. Dewey won her heart, and the hearts of the staff, by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love….

Chet And Bernie #1 February 2009 On Sale: February 10, 2009 320 pages ISBN: 1416585834EAN: 9781416585831Hardcover$25.00 Mystery Pet Lovers Buy at A Fresh Fiction read for 2009! Dog On It by Spencer Quinn Meet Chet, the wise and lovable canine narrator of Dog on It, who works alongside Bernie, a down-on-his-luck private investigator. Chet might have flunked out of police school (“I’d been the best leaper in K-9 class, which had led to all the trouble in a way I couldn’t remember exactly, although blood was involved”), but he’s a detective through and through. In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters. A well-behaved, gifted student, she didn’t arrive home after school and her divorced mother is frantic. Bernie is quick to take the case — something about a cash flow problem that Chet’s not all that clear about — and he’s relieved, if vaguely suspicious, when Madison turns up unharmed with a story that doesn’t add up. But when she disappears for a second time in a week, Bernie and…
