Time to Get Your Spooky Reads All Lined Up for October!
Monday, September 29th, 2014: Today I plan to shop until I drop. It’s an annual birthday tradition, and I can hardly wait. I rationalize it by saying I’m doing my part to keep the economy going but it’s actually just an excuse for some annual retail therapy. Whoot! (Truthfully it’s as much window shopping as actually purchasing but who cares? It’s tons of fun!)
Tuesday, September 30th, 2014: We’re reviewing Ryder by Nick Pengelley. In Book #1 of a new mystery series, Ayesha Ryder has to solve her lover’s murder. But she also has to uncover secrets and a conspiracy dating back to the real Lawrence of Arabia if she’s to stop a plot designed to literally blow up Israeli/Palestinian peace talks.
Wednesday, October 1st, 2014: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for The Hawley Book of the Dead by Chrysler Szarlan. When Revelation “Reve” Dyer’s magician husband is killed in Las Vegas, she takes her children to the only place she believes they’ll be safe, Hawley’s Five Corners in Massachusetts. But Reve learns their family’s myths aren’t myths at all. Can she uncover what she needs in time to protect her family from the thing searching for them?
Thursday, October 2nd, 2014: We’re reviewing A Penny For The Hangman by Tom Savage. Fifty years ago, two wealthy teen boys murdered their parents on the island of St. Thomas and went to prison. Karen Tyler, a New York journalist, is fascinated by what she learns about the case when a movie about them is in pre-release. Getting an interview with anyone connected to the case could be the scoop that will make her career so she accepts an invitation to the islands – big mistake on her part…
Friday, October 3rd, 2014: I’m going to FINALLY finish (hopefully) transferring everything from my old laptop into my kinda new one. It’s got to be done before this poor old faithful beast dies on me for good. I feel like someone should play Taps or Auld Lang Syne for it to give it a good send-off because it’s been an amazing workhorse…
