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 monthís new releases. Hopefully longer days means more reading
time because you wonít want to put these books down.

A lot of new to me authors this month. Are any of these authors your
favorites? Where should I start reading?

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 theyíre 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. Iím looking forward to Readers Ďn Ďritas 2011 because
RNR 2010 was such a blast. Iíve 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 donít tend to shop very often, and
rarely go to a mall. Then Christmas hits, and I have to shop, and suddenly
itís the season of giving ďone for you and one for me.Ē Temptation abounds and

I was at one of the final meetings for the Readers Ďn Ďritas 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 ďTo scare the *&^% out of you while making you hot.Ē Needless to say, it took the table by surprise but I think itís 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. Iíve 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
Obviously, one of my favorite genres is romantic suspense. I love the way the
building suspense makes my heart race and keeps me reading late through the
night. I like the strong heroine who goes toe-to-toe with the lovingly arrogant
hero. I enjoy the passion that brings them together and keeps them going. I
love, love, love the happy ending. Iíve tried reading suspense but it doesnít
work for me unless Read More...
Itís June and the Texas heat has settled in for the summer. If Iím not out the
door by 6:45am, we skip the trip to the dog park because itís just too hot. So,
fun means indoor and air-conditioned activities. Movies, television, shopping,
and going to the gym are all on the list. Of course, my favorite activity is
curling-up in bed with a good book. Now that I Read More...
