Oops….Two “New” Authors

Sometimes I am on top of what’s new.  And I will admit I am not a fan of “Oprah’s Picks” because they make me think too much.  I want a read where I can escape and relax and enjoy for awhile.  I really like books I can pick up and put down and not have lost the thread of the plot.  I would say about 95% of what I read fits into that category (I do read some “deeper” things sometimes, usually when a close friend says I have to).

So, that said, I have two “new” (to me) authors I have discovered.  The first one, Stuart Woods, I found by way of a book someone left at work for anyone to read and I picked it up and read it.  He is a mystery writer of a couple of different series (which happen to interlock at one point).bloodorchid

I have not been disappointed in the books I have read of his so far and I checked out a pile from the library, so I have plenty to read of his.

While at the library, picking up more Stuart Woods’ books, I found this on the shelf,  The Diva Runs Out of Thyme

By Krista Davis, this book was a really fun read and a little drooling over the cooking going on in the book while solving a mystery doesn’t hurt.  So now it’s back to the library to get more.  You can never have too much of a cooking diva.  And the antagonist in the book, Natasha, is a hoot.  We all have people in our lives, who always have to be “better”, have more, be better off than we are and they are our cross to bear.  Such is Natasha to the main character, Sophie.

  1. Hi, Judy! I am embarrased to admit I am just now finishing up visiting those who stopped by my blog during our soul journal blog party, but I just had to come by and say thanks and hi. I giggled at your OD's party philosophies. Those kids, huh? I have one that is 20, and similar in her own way. Gorgeous journal page about words and so true. xoxo,
