Posted 14 February, 2014 by DLWhite in Writers Read 0 Comments



Hello, Sweet Friday! It’s been another week of weather woes here in the Southeast. Let’s hope we begin our Spring early, shall we???

This weekend I hope I’ll be knee deep in some writing, but I have to take advantage of the long spans of time during which I can READ MY FACE OFF. Below are the books I’ll be digging into this weekend:

17618286The Wife, The Maid, The Mistress by Ariel Lawhon

On a sultry summer night, as rumors circulate about the judge’s involvement in wide-scale political corruption, the Honorable Joseph Crater steps into a cab and disappears without a trace. Or does he?

I saw a great review of this book and it’s sent in New York in the 1930’s, which is an era I love to read about. I decided to make this my weekend read. Looking forward to it!


18246304The Chance by Robyn Carr

With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she’ll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

I am reading this novel for NetGalley. It will be available for purchase on February 25th, so I’ll finish it and pop up a review before then. Initial thoughts: It’s kind of a meandering love story without a whole lot of conflict. I’m finding Robyn Carr to be dialogue heavy. I tried to read the book that came before this one and I don’t believe I finished it. I’m trying my hardest with this one. It’s not awful, and it’s actually an easy going read. I just read way too much romantic suspense because I keep thinking “something” is going to happen and it’s…… just a romance.  

Among others, those are what I’ll be reading this weekend. What’s on your reading list?
