Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss


February 21, 2010

Sandi ShilhanekAbout a week ago I experienced winter in a way that I haven’t had to since we moved to Texas. Our area had a record snowfall of 12.5 inches, and while I realize that’s nothing compared to the rest of the country, for Dallas it’s paralyzing. All that winter weather got me to thinking about books with winter or some other season in the title.

Off to Fresh Fiction I went searching, and found The Edge of Winter by Luanne Rice. I read this when it first came out and was unfortunately less than impressed, but Luanne Rice is still one of my must read authors, and I have several favorites by her including Cloud Nine which is what my friends call a weepy read…so if you decide to read it have the Kleenex handy.

Summer House The opposite of winter is summer…so I went searching for titles that have summer in them, and was amazed at how many there were, and that I needed a list to remind me of one of my favorite books, The Summerhouse by Jude Devereaux When I read this book it spoke to me on so many different levels, and if I were a keeper it would have made it to my keeper shelf. I also really enjoyed Return to Summerhouse.

Forbidden Falls
Summer leads to fall, and for fall I discovered Forbidden Falls, which is really a “fall” title, but hey it fits for my purposes, and all my friends know what a fan I am of Robyn
. If you haven’t read her Virgin River books you need to!

Come The Spring
Finally after the dreary days of winter we’re ready for spring, and I came up with Come The Spring by Julie Garwood. I know I read Come The Spring, and I know it’s part of her Claybourne Brothers series. While I can’t immediately recall it, I can remember being totally engrossed at the time I read it, and would recommend Garwood. One of my personal favorites of hers is Prince Charming.

So now that I’ve come full circle it’s your turn. Do you have a certain book that has a seasonal type of word in the title? Share and give us a small hint of what it is so we can all add to our TBR piles!

Until next week happy page turning.
