I Love a Good Mystery!

What are YOU Reading? Try a SNOWBALL!


I’ve been enjoying some blog tours for the past couple of weeks. Starting with the authors that I was currently reading, I added some others, represented by interesting agents. That list continued to build as I found some local, recently published authors, and the whole thing grew enormously as I peeked through Twitter links. 

I wandered onto Sandra Bricker’s blog during all of this, and found her sense of humor to be delightful. (Actually, I think I called her a “hoot!”) Intrigued by her novel titles, I chose to download Finding Love in Snowball, Arkansas to my e-reader.

I laughed hysterically at the antics of the heroine that, frankly, hit way too close to home!  Moments later, I had to dry my eyes from empathizing with her humiliation.  This book certainly ran the gamut!

However, I enjoyed this book more when I finished it than while I read it. I know, that sounds pretty strange, but the most fun I had with this book happened while I listened to my sweet red-head’s reactions as she read it! 

My sweet red-head!

Completely uninhibited in her expressiveness, she would sit across from me and burst into giggles.  Seconds later, I’d hear her say, “Oh, no.” I loved hearing her laugh or seeing her tear up.  I would ask her, “Where are you now?” and we would talk through the event she had just passed. What a great sharing time. 

It’s so wonderful to have such an amazing variety of Christian fiction that she and I both can enjoy and share together!  Huge thumbs up to Sandra Bricker.  If you like to laugh and enjoy a fun romance, this book is for you. 

What was the last novel you read that made you both laugh and cry? How about just laugh out loud?
