Recently I got “Someone Else’s Daughter” from BookBub. And, I have found a new author that I plan to follow. It’s a Romantic Suspense. One of my favorite genre’s. This is the first in the series and introduces the characters.

Miranda Steele is a damaged heroine that has been through hell. Thirteen years ago her husband, stole her three-week old daughter and said he adopted her out. Then literally threw Miranda out like garbage. She reinvents herself and over the years spends every resource she has looking for her daughter.

Wealthy (really wealthy) PI Wade Parker is a fantasy hero. He has it all. Money, looks, social status, oh and did I mention looks. We all need these bigger than life hero’s from time to time and he fills the bill.

Linsey Lanier has created strong characters and woven in a page turner plot.  Miranda gets information that her daughter might be living in an upscale town. She immediately travels there and stumbles into the path of a serial killer who is strangling young girls her daughters age in what looks like a bizarre ritual.

Like I said, I got this book through BookBub which directed me to Amazon. While looking at Ms. Lanier’s backlist I noticed it was still offered at no cost but that might have changed. I also purchased two more of her books in this series and can’t wait to read them.

Wishing you Happy Reading.

UnknownAlthough every day is a day to be thankful, this is Thanksgiving week for those of us who live in the States.  It isn’t as busy for me as it once was when we had the holiday dinner at our house and I spent the days leading up to it grocery shopping and cooking.  All around a full work schedule.  I remember one year when I had just started on the pies (around six in the evening) and all of a sudden I didn’t have any water.  We did have this amazing guy who had put in the well and he came right out.  He fixed the pump, thank heavens it wasn’t the well, though he worked until almost eleven o’clock.  He told us his wife was home baking pies for the homeless shelter.  What an exceptional family. Yes, I stayed up late, but how can you not remember and be thankful for people like these.

I took some time off from writing and I probably won’t be turning out as many books in the future. I love writing though, so I doubt that I’ll ever not have a story in progress.  What I don’t love is promoting and if you want to sell books you have to do it.  So, with the holidays here, and not promoting The Season Of Love last year, I decided to do a little research and found BookBub.  I love it. For one thing, it is as much a service to the reader as the author. Just my kind of marketing as reading is a big part of my life. And, sharing an author I’ve just found or a book I haven’t been able to put down isn’t ‘Marketing’ it’s forming a community to share the experience of a good story.

BookBub sends me out a list of ebook bargains every day.  Some are free. I had just picked up ‘Sold On Monday’ in paperback for $9.99 and it was on the list for  $2.99.  By the way, it is a really good story.   The bargains don’t last long I’ve gone in like a week later and the book was up to regular price but that isn’t a problem for me.  If you would like to join BookBub  click here. 

I made an author page and would love to have you follow me.  It’s a great place to share reading experiences.

Until next time, Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving and happy reading.
