I've Been Reading

A friend of mine recommended Linda Lael Miller's Deadly Deceptions. LLM is widely known for writing romance, but this is a mystery about a PI named Mojo Sheepshanks who sees dead people and solves crimes. It's a great new series, love the characters and the setting. It's definitely a romantic mystery and had me blushing on the flight to DC.

Also read The Marriage Recipe by Michele Dunaway. I'm a sucker for romances with "marriage" in the title for some reason. This was a great escape while sitting in the airport waiting for my flight. Though I kept craving sweets while reading it. Wonder why.

Currently reading Thugs and Kisses by Sue Ann Jaffarian, the third in her Odelia Grey series. I really love plus-sized paralegal Odelia and Sue Ann's writing style. It was hard to put down last night...

I also read two People magazines and a Good Housekeeping on my travels. I was *almost* sick of reading by the time I got home. Gasp.

Anyone have other recommendations? Not that my TBR pile needs more additions...


  1. I love swapping reading lists =) I actually looked at The Marriage Recipe in the store the other day...the cover looked yummy. I guess I'll pick it up. And I'm a sucker for anything with ghosts, so Deadly Deceptions looks right up my alley too!

    I just finished Elizabeth Bevarly's Fast and Loose, the first in her Kentucky Derby trilogy, and caught up with the latest 2 titles in the Harlequin NASCAR series. I'm a huge NASCAR fan, but even if you're not, they're great stories. Right now, with my heart broken over the death of Eight Belles at the Derby, I'm reading My Guy Barbaro by Edgar Prado.

  2. I've just finished reading The Other Boleyn Girl and almost done with The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. I've enjoyed both of them and look forward to reading more of her books.

  3. Melissa, I bet you'll love DD, though it's the second book in the series. You might want to start with the first. I haven't read Elizabeth Bevarly in a while--I'll have to pick some up!

    And that was just too sad about the Derby. *sniffle*


    Katie, I've heard so much about the Boleyn books, but haven't read them yet. I'm making a list. :)

  4. I meant to post that mystery-wise, the best books I've read recently were Withering Heights by Dorothy Cannell and Murder is Binding by Lorna Barrett (love Miss Marple the cat)! Next I plan to read The Cracked Pot by Melissa Glazer, set in the fictional town of Maple Ridge, Vermont =)
