Mystery and suspense for the reader on the edge
Some thrilling books to kick off the summer season! I got a sneak peak at
several of this month’s new releases. Hopefully longer days means more reading
time because you won’t want to put these books down.

Take a peek at some of the thrilling new releases for May. There are some new
and continuing series (I love series), as well as some stand-alone books that
have caught my attention. Happy reading!

A lot of new to me authors this month. Are any of these authors your
favorites? Where should I start reading?
Having read some of her earlier books, I’m looking forward
to reading EXPOSURE by
I’ve posted reviews for two books out this month that I
thoroughly enjoyed. A LOT

I have one month of tracking my books behind me and in that month I read 15
books. I think I am well ahead of my estimate of 100 books in a year. At this
rate it will be closer to 200. Who knew!? What have a learned from tracking my
reading? First, I really do read a lot. People have teased me about always
carrying a book with me, and since they’re right Read More...
Happy 2011! I had a great holiday celebrating with friends and family. As I
think about the new year, I have the typical resolutions (yes, including healthy
eating and exercise!). I hope to finally repair my shower which has been out of
commission for a while. I’m looking forward to Readers ‘n ‘ritas 2011 because
RNR 2010 was such a blast. I’ve been a voracious reader most of my life but
have no Read More...
I think people who know me would be comfortable calling me frugal. I shop at
thrift stores, buy only on sale, and do extensive research before buying
anything over about $50. Because of this, I don’t tend to shop very often, and
rarely go to a mall. Then Christmas hits, and I have to shop, and suddenly

I was at one of the final meetings for the Readers ‘n ‘ritas 2010 planning committee. The issue of defining mission statements for the different genres came up and I, being a loyal reader of romantic suspense, blurted out “To scare the *&^% out of you while making you hot.” Needless to say, it took the table by surprise but I think it’s actually fairly Read More...
I love October. The summer heat is mostly gone. I no longer have to be up by
6:00am to take the dogs for a walk. The new TV season has started. I’ve been
back at work for about 6 weeks, so everything has settled into a routine. I
work in academia so I get to take some time off in the summer, something for
which I am very appreciative. I must say, though Read More...
My birthday falls at the end of August. When I was a kid I hated the fact that
my birthday was during summer break because I never got to celebrate with
cupcakes or cookies in class. Now that I work at a University, I find that my
birthday falls on, or shortly after, the first day of school which means
birthday celebrations come second to the start-of-semester madness. This year
my birthday falls Read More...
It was truly a thrill to spend some of my Saturday with suspense authors Tess Gerritsen and Lisa Gardner who were in
Dallas to promote their new books with a book signing at Borders and a radio
interview. While in town, they made time for dinner with the DFW Tea Readers
