What to do? Whatto do?
I love doingbook reviews. I’ve learned so much this summer about writing and publishing! Ithas given me a deep respect for the authors who pour their time, energy, andalmost their own blood into the books that I’ve read. But right now, I’m in a quandary.
I try to do myreviews on just released books or those about to be released in order to helpthe authors as much as possible. At this point though, the only books I have inmy e-reader are a little older, so I’m in need of some assistance.
Which of thebooks below have you read and would you recommend it, OR which of these booksare you most interested in learning about? I’ve given a little blurb about eachof them from their back covers.

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  2. What I've read of Ronie Kendig I have really enjoyed. Hidden in Plain Sight was…just okay. Worth a read if you're looking at Love Inspired Suspense.I signed up for Netgalley – you request ARC's by searching by publisher. That's where I get my books to review, then post them on my blogWww.nataliagortova.blogspot.com

  4. The Dead Reckoning sounds very intriguing. I'd like to know whether the plot is as sophisticated as the blurb states.

  6. Loree, Have wanted to read Always the Baker, but couldn't buy any more books until I completed what I had. (Self-imposed goal.) Then I won her new book last week. Well, I have to read the first one first! :)(At least that's what I'm telling myself.)

  9. All of them. lol. My suggestion, since you want to write romantic suspense, is to read as much as you can in that genre. The reason being is you'll get a good feel for how these books flow, which ones make you HAVE to turn the page and then analyze what that author did to make you have to turn the page. This is not only a great opportunity for touting author's books, but learning from those who've gone before you. That's my suggestion. Happy Reading! (And I know the Queen would wholeheartedly agree with me.) lol.

  10. Of those, I've only read two: Code Blue and Dead Reckoning. Both were good. But I tip toward Dead Reckoning just because when I finally delve into suspense (which isn't often!) I do enjoy a good espionage story.
