HOT Reads Edition of Fan Girl Friday

Welcome to Friday! Can I get an AMEN?

And we have a long weekend. I can almost hear a gospel choir in the background. Yes, we get an extra day and that means more time for….READING! possibility - Beth

So what do we have on tap for you this edition? Well, a few sales from two Rubies and a couple of recommendations plus a new release. You ready to check these out and then give us your recommended Labor Day weekend reads?

First the sales…let’s check out the deals:

Ruby Sister Laurie Kellogg has The Parent Pact FREE. A Little Bit of Deja Vu will be only $1.99 and Baby, I’m Back! will be only 99 cents. All only at Amazon. Here’s the page where you can score these deals https://www.amazon.com/Laurie-Kellogg/e/B0076J5Q20/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1472784812&sr=1-1

And from yours truly (Liz Talley), the first book in my new Morning Glory series Charmingly Yours is on sale for $1.99! I’m a little too excited about having a book on sale because as a trad pubbed author I don’t get to run sales. It’s the perfect light escapist read that’s heavy on romance with a tinge of Women’s Fiction. And the cover is really cute if I do say so myself. Here’s the link where you can score this one: http://bit.ly/CharminglyYours

Oh, and Ruby Skye Jordan has a fabulous promotion and giveaway going this Labor Day weekend. Plenty of books on sale and a change to win books. There will be 24 WINNERS with tons of great authors (72 of them!) participating. You can ENTER HERE: http://bit.ly/2bdoG1M

Now on to RECOMMENDATIONS….

From Tamara Hogan:

Last week, I read former MTV VJ Dave Holmes’s new memoir, “Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs.” A “hilarious memoir of a perpetual outsider fumbling towards self-acceptance, with the music of the ‘80s, ‘90s, and today as his soundtrack,” Holmes, now Editor-At-Large at Esquire magazine, brings serious writing chops and massive pop culture cred to this bittersweet – and did I say hilarious? – coming of age story.

From Elizabeth Langston

I recommend Noelle Adams for adult contemporary romance. A Negotiated Marriage and Listless are two of my favorites. LISTED will make you cry. https://www.amazon.com/Listed-Volumes-I-VI-Noelle-Adams-ebook/dp/B00BXPHW5C A Negotiated Marriage is a modern marriage of convenience. https://www.amazon.com/Negotiated-Marriage-Noelle-Adams-ebook/dp/B00B09UST8 I also like her Willow Park series. It’s set in a small mountain town in NC. Attending the same church is the the common thread throughout the series–but that is one happy congregation, because these books are sweet and steamy (is that even possible?) https://www.amazon.com/Married-Christmas-Willow-Park-Book-ebook/dp/B00H0OKQ76

 

And finally a NEW RELEASE from Ruby Julia Day (Yes, a pen name…we have a few of those but no worries, they’re still Rubies!)

  I have a new book releasing on Tuesday, Sept 6.  If you want to add it tomorrow, it is available for pre-order.  If you want to wait until next week, that’s fine too.  The book is THE POSSIBILITY OF SOMEWHERE.  My first YA contemporary romance. 

Here’s a link to my books page: that might be easier than including a gazillion buylinks. http://www.juliaday.com/books/the-possibility-of-somewhere/

Now let’s hear from you. WHAT ARE YOU READING THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND?

 

 

HOT Reads Edition of Fan Girl Friday

Happy “Good Lord It’s Hot” Friday!

Or at least it’s hot in my neck of the woods. Kids are gearing up for back to school, the pool is too hot for a dip (temp of bathwater? No thanks) and fall isn’t even flirting with me yet.

BUT, good news – we have some hot reads you can nab. Then put your feet up, grabbed that chilled wine spritzer (or just a cold Sprite) and lose yourself in a whole new world. Yay!

HOT OFF THE PRESSES:

I’ve always liked Susan Wiggs and I put this one on my TBR stack mostly because of the cover and title. Family Tree is her new rerelease and the perfect one for someone looking for a sweet, emotional journey. It’s the story of woman living a charmed life who finds herself losing everything. She must journey back home to the family who raised her. There’s an old cookbook, a former love and lots of healing. And the cover suggest fall. Come on, fall! The price point is prohibitive at $12.99 but it might be the perfect one to put on your “want” shelf. https://www.amazon.com/Family-Tree-Novel-Susan-Wiggs-ebook/dp/B01825C50W/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1470916734&sr=1-1&keywords=susan+wiggs+family+tree

Love the best friend to lovers trope? How about The Best Friend Bargain by Robin Bielman? Olivia Lincoln has a plan guaranteed to get her life back on track. A plan that involves her best friend, Danny. And he’s on board, too…until she blurts ostacking the deckut that they’re engaged and expecting a baby, and the news spreads like wildfire. Sound up your alley (uh, that’s up everyone’s alley), you can check it out at https://www.amazon.com/Best-Friend-Bargain-Kisses-Sand-ebook/dp/B01IN8O470?tag=entangpublis-20&link_code=ur2&creative=9325&camp=211189

And fun news from Marina Adair – her book Autumn in the Vineyard has been picked up for development at the Hallmark Channel! Such fun and fabulous news and if you want to read the book before you watch the movie, you can find it here: https://www.amazon.com/Autumn-Vineyard-St-Helena-Novel-ebook/dp/B00CRMUJV4/ref=sr_1_10?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1470919306&sr=1-10&keywords=marina+adair

Her mother is diagnosed as insane and committed, a psycho-stalker is snapping pictures of her to put into his homemade Jule-shrine, her voice is suddenly putting people into comatose trances, oh and the gorgeous new guy in town, Luke Whitmore, is interested in her . . . but also wants to kill her.   Find it at https://www.amazon.com/Sirens-Song-Guardians-Book-1-ebook/dp/B019WQ3POK/ref=sr_1_5?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1470918179&sr=1-5&keywords=heather+mccollum

Here’s the tag line for the series – In a city built for sin, the Redemption Club is a secret society that exists to fulfill a person’s darkest desires—including murder games—for a price.

FROM THE TBR STACK:

Ruby Rita Henuber has been dipping into her TBR stack and came out with a sexy fantasy. So if you’re looking for something to light your fires, here you go:

Before She Wakes: Forbidden Fairy Tales 
by Sharon Lynn Fisher 
Link: 
https://amzn.com/B01208WP1G

Ruby sister and Rita finalist Sharon Lynn Fisher blends dark erotic romance, fantasy, and science fiction in these bold tales of seduction and sensual awakening. These are bedtime stories for adults.

Double RITA finalist and Bachelor-addicted Lizzie Shane has a recommendation for us:

It’s a new release by my good friend Kaye Chambers, who had to take a hiatus from writing but she’s back and just released the second book in her San Fran-based urban fantasy series.  DEFYING DESTINY (https://www.amazon.com/Defying-Destiny-Ladies-George-Book-ebook/dp/B01IYH8OGW) is the sequel to BLOOD & DESTINY (https://www.amazon.com/Blood-Destiny-Ladies-George-Book-ebook/dp/B0037BS2H2) and I would recommend reading both because it’s one of those series where the characters build on you and the emotional payoff in the final third of the second book is heart-wrenchingly satisfying.  I hope other readers love getting wrapped up in Destiny & Marcus’s world as much as I did.  🙂

And finally I have a recommendation for you history lovers out there. Last week I picked up Daniel Silva’s The Unlikely Spy.  Set in the midst of WWII, it chronicles the cat and mouse games played by both the German and British spies. This particular book revolves around the intelligence surrounding the D Day invasion and was full of masterful twists and turns. It’s long, it’s complicated and it’s perfect for those who love spies, betrayal and a bad ass woman with a stiletto (she scared me!) I bought this one because it was the cheapest and I wanted to try him. It’s $4.99 and worth every penny. He has a new one out now…but it’s not $4.99 🙂

https://www.amazon.com/Unlikely-Spy-Daniel-Silva-ebook/dp/B001MV0GGY/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1470918818&sr=1-1&keywords=the+unlikely+spy+by+daniel+silva

So there you have it – some great books to check out for every reader’s taste. Now it’s your turn. Share with us what’s been tickling your fancy….or making you sleep with the lights on!
