Fab news–for you and for me!

on February 18, 2019

First, I’m doing a little interpretive celebration dance (with jazz hands!) because A DANGEROUS COLLABORATION has been chosen as a LibraryReads Top 10 Book! Y’all know how much I adore librarians, so getting a nod from them is an absolute thrill. And now for the good news for readers: Penguin Random House is doing a…

Something tasty for the TBR pile!

on September 5, 2017

Today is pub day for Ashley Weaver’s latest Amory Ames novel! I have so enjoyed this series beginning with MURDER AT THE BRIGHTWELL. The third is out today–THE ESSENCE OF MALICE–and there was a short story set in Capri that dropped this summer if you want to be fully caught up on all of Amory…

I’m in danger of being crushed…

on March 24, 2017

by my TBR pile. SO MANY BOOKS TO READ. But this is a good problem to have, right? Since November I’ve been doing a lot of comfort reading–for obvious reasons. First I binge-read Georgette Heyer’s Regency novels. I haven’t finished, but I did manage quite a few before I decided I needed a break from…

I’m on tour!

on January 12, 2017

So today I’m at the Poisoned Pen in Phoenix–after what I’m assuming was a fabulous event yesterday at Murder by the Book (I’m writing this in advance like the keen multitasker I am…) Since I’m on tour, I thought I’d repeat a post when I was answering reader questions. This was a great query on…

Comfort reads!

on January 5, 2017

Oh, it’s been cold and blustery and damp here, my dears–a typical start to January in my neck of the woods. It’s perfect reading weather, although I’ve been busy revising the third Veronica book and preparing for the launch of A PERILOUS UNDERTAKING. I have still managed to sneak in some pleasure reading, and here…

Are you caught up with Julia’s holiday adventures?

on December 27, 2016

If you’ve read the five Julia novels but not started on the novellas, now is a great time to start! They begin with SILENT NIGHT, picking up just after the action of THE DARK ENQUIRY finishes. They are digital only, but you don’t need an e-reader. Kindle, Nook, and Kobo all offer free reading platforms…

Rounding up some spooky reads

on October 20, 2016

I don’t like to be scared–not really. A little suspense is fine, but no outright horror, please. Here are a few of my seasonal favorites: *Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. WITCHES. That’s all you need. *The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. It’s not a popular view, but I really, really dislike Ichabod Crane….

MOAR BOOKS

on October 18, 2016

Remember when I said we were spoiled for new books this month? Yep, here we go again! Today is the pub day for the latest Sherry Thomas, A STUDY IN SCARLET WOMEN. I sometimes think that there is nothing new under the sun when it comes to Sherlock; I am SO HAPPY to say I…

Milo and Amory are back!

on October 11, 2016

Y’all know how much I love Ashley Weaver’s Amory Ames series, right? I mean, I am not shy about this. Ashley is not only a clever writer, she’s an uncommonly kind person. Hearing that I was bemoaning the fact that her second book would not be published in time to take it along on my…

We are spoiled, dear readers

on October 6, 2016

There are so many great books coming out this month! If you subscribe to my newsletter, you’ve already gotten a peek at what I’m excited about, and today we have Juliana Gray up first. Gray is the alter ego of the delightful Beatriz Williams, and she writes–in her own words–“elegant adventures”. Gray has taken a…
