    Default Shelley's Recommended Reads

    I love to read. I started out as a reader before becoming interested in writing and still read a lot to keep up with market trends. My love for reading is still as strong as ever.

    I thought I'd start a thread and mention some of the books I've particularly enjoyed. Mostly I read romance but sometimes I journey into mystery or thriller territory.

    My first recommendation is Blood Ties by Lori Armstrong. Blood Ties is a mystery featuring Julie Collins. Julie is tough, she drinks and swears. She likes sex, and she comes to the story with a lot of baggage. Her half brother is part Lakota and she's devastated at his death. Others have been murdered and no one is investigating the crimes because of their Native American heritage. Then a white girl is murdered and Julie becomes involved in the investigation.

    On paper Julie should be an unlikeable character. She's not. She's tough and tenacious and complex. There's a definite chemistry between Julie and her friend Kevin.

    There are two more mysteries in this series. I'm waiting for book 2 to arrive and imagine I'll devour it as quickly as I read Blood Ties. Lori has done an awesome job with Blood Ties. It's a riveting read.

    Hollie - Lori is an amazing writer. She has a new series coming, which I'm looking forward to very much.

    Dani - I enjoyed Unquiet Dreams as much as the first book in the series. They're not romances but still very good, interesting reads with great characters.

    Thanks for the info on the book. I'll have to find the first book and read it before reading the other.

    Oh, I wanted to tell you that I picked up Best Man the other night while I was getting another EC book. I'll let you know soon how I like it.

    I've seen the books of Shelley Munro and I like it. I guess I should follow Shelley's recommendation for a beginner to read her books. I am more on romance and fantasy reader but I guess I don't need to be hesitant in reading an interesting books like this.

    I'm reading a Week to Be Wicked by Tessa Dare at the moment. It's a historical romance and so much fun. The hero and heroine are racing off to Scotland at the moment. There's lots of humor and witty dialogue and its such a fun read.

    What are you reading this week?
