I always get excited when an author comes to town. Now that I know a few, when it’s someone I know well, I love to be able to introduce them to their most avid fan. That’s why I headed over to the Mystery One Bookstore on Milwaukee’s east side to see Hank Phillippi Ryan with Heidi (one of the WW Ladies). Hank is on a whirlwind book tour for The Wrong Girl and Heidi couldn’t wait to get her hands on a copy after reading Hank’s last book. Just something very special about connecting that one reader with the one author who has made a lasting impression. While we were at the store, Greg strolled in for a fantasy book, but after Heather’s glowing review of Hank’s book, Greg ended up buying the book. Every author needs these kind of fans.
As a special treat, the Mary Higgins Clark award-winning author and investigative TV reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan is giving away a terrific gift. Hank’s to-die-for prize package: two BOSTON STRONG T-shirts, a signed copy of the Mary Higgins Clark award-winning novel, THE OTHER WOMAN—and a signed copy of THE WRONG GIRL, all tucked into a special tote. Just leave the comment, “The Wrong Girl” for a chance to win. I’ll post the winner tomorrow.
Jade Lee recommends Second Hand by Heidi Cullinan and Marie Sexton. A delightful m/m book that came alive for me. Two guys who felt real. I never thought I could get into m/m but this book showed me how absolutely real love between two men can feel.
C.H. Admirand recommends Ransom by Julie Garwood (Historical Romance). It is one of my favorite books to re-read with a braw Scottish Laird and a strong Englishwoman. I confess, I have all of Ms. Garwood’s books
Anne Elizabeth recommends Cathy Maxwell’s The Devil’s Heart: The Chattan Curse. Maxwell’s heroine is a strong woman with the ability to rise above life’s challenges while still celebrating the beauty of falling in love.
Kathleen Pickering would like to recommend Bonnie Vanak’s latest Nocturne, Phantom Wolf. Bonnie has a knack for writing sexy, exciting romances wrapped around intrigue. Her unique touch to paranormal mystique creates heroes and heroines you can’t forget. I love reading Bonnie’ books and eagerly await each one’s release.
Bottom Line: Today is Video Games Day. I say replace it with You Can’t Play a Game Until You Read a Book Day!
