Books, books and more books!
It's November! 2020 is flying by in someways and in other ways, its the longest year ever.
I've been reading and streaming TV/movies when not writing my own books. I just can't do television right now. It's too distressing.
Here are some of the books I've been reading. I'm slowly reviewing my way through my stacks of read books.

Fabulous books for Fall
It's September, the official start to autumn. Here in the PNW, the wind is blowing like crazy, the air quality is poor with smoke from the wildfires and the temperature is still fluctuating in the 80-90 range. It's best to stay inside reading!
Here's a great way to find some new to you authors and books that will keep you going long into fall and winter.

A new Leah Vale book!
We started out together over twenty years ago as unpublished authors with the dream to write romance stories that would touch people's lives. In the process of learning to navigate craft of writing and the business of publishing we became best friends.
How gorgeous is this cover! The story is such a fun and heart-felt tale of two people who have known each other their whole lives but soon discover that familiarity can be enticing and magical if they can let down their guard long enough to let love in.
His little sister’s best friend…
The moment Amanda Rodrigues placed her hand over his heart to break up a fight, rancher Liam Neisson knew he was in trouble. He may have watched Amanda grow up next door and run in and out of his house indulging in wild escapades with his sister, but at this year’s rodeo, he suddenly can no longer think of her as the dark-haired little orphan girl running wild. She’s now a stubborn brown-eyed beauty who needs his help.
Her best friend’s big brother…
Sure she’s crushed on Liam all her life, but can she trust him? Barrel racer Amanda recently inherited her parents' small dream ranch years ago, and has learned to run it with little help, but when a letter arrives from an attorney saying his client has a promissory note now due, Amanda knows even her will and hard work ethic won’t be enough. Liam’s family offers to help, but his offer to buy her prized stallion raises her suspicions. What if Amanda is risking more than her heart?
