Time to read – and write

January 7th, 2012

I’ve spent part of my time over the holiday season reading mystery. I tackled my advance reader copy of Defending Jacob (obtained at Bouchercon 2011). It was an emotional ride, but worth every goosebump. A good, if disturbing story, that was told well. As a parent, I found my thoughts  and emotions pulled from despair to hope  and back again as I rapidly turned pages. The book will be available by the end of January, 2012. Highly recommended!
As always, I have multiple other volumes on my “to read” list. I’d love to hear what you’ve been reading, and how you liked it.
I also had uninterrupted time to devote to my second novel – the prequel to Seeker of TruthMaiden Murders. Sister Lucie (Sarah Forbes) is central to the plot, of course, but the action takes place before her convent days. Mark, her police detective husband is still alive, and she unwittingly helps him track down a serial killer while researching prehistoric Native American sacrificial rites. Stay tuned for more on Maiden Murders!
