What I like about Fall

As the title suggests I like fall. Here in the northwest we have all four seasons. But the best part about fall for me is the cooler weather. Yes, I’m one of those people who prefer moderate temps and some rain now and then. Below is my top ten list of things I like about fall. I’d love to hear what season is your favorite and why.

If you were hoping for a book review, I’m sorry. I only review books I really like at last week was a dud. Hopefully I’ll have some exciting title to tell you about next week. Now on with the list in no particular order.

1. School is back in session

2. Cooler weather

3. The smell of the air

4. The change in daylight hours. I love long days, but I also enjoy how cool the nights get because of fewer daylight hours

5. Pumpkin anything

6. Fall flowers

7. Colorful leaves

8. Thanksgiving

9. Apple cider

10.The general feel of anticipation in the air about what’s to come–holidays, weather, work, etc… For me it’s strongest in the fall.


Deadly Pursuit

Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon is suspense at it’s best.

Alison Taylor has a soft heart and agrees to help her police-detective brother’s new partner, ex-Navy Seal, Mitch Morgan out of a pickle. Mitch needs a date to attend a wedding and her brother convinces her she’d be saving him from all the single vultures. Since he’s new in town and she has nothing better to do, she agrees. However after making the promise she wishes she hadn’t until she opens the door and meets Mitch.

Mitch can’t believe he agreed to a set up. His new partner gave him a sob story about how his sister was injured in a car accident a year ago and still has no social life. After agreeing Mitch wants to back out, but sticks to his commitment. When Alison opens the door he can’t believe she needed a to be setup on a blind date.

As the title indicates this story is a suspense and it delivers big time. Without giving too much away, I’ll just say that Alison has a stalker. This story is probably one of the best I’ve ever read by Irene Hannon. Of course, I think that after every book I’ve read by her.

Under the Cajun Moon

Under the Cajun Moon, by Mindy Starns Clark had me squirming in my seat thanks to the swamp setting and not so friendly reptiles.

Chloe rushes home to New Orleans to see her father who was shot. But her plans are thwarted when she is framed for murder and finds herself in the middle of a treasure hunt. When she makes bail an old acquaintance helps her escape the media and subsequently helps her to solve the mystery surrounding her father and his treasure.

This novel touched on forgiveness and understanding how the words we say can have a strong impact on others, whether positive or negative.

I enjoyed Under the Cajun Moon, but don’t recommend it to the squeamish. Of course if you’re a romantic suspense reader you probably aren’t put off by a snake or two. Happy reading.

Killer Headline

What do the mob and green eyes have do to with one another? That’s what Journalist Violet Kramer seeks to figure out in Debby Guisti’s romantic suspense, Killer Headline.

Violet is in over her head, but refuses to back down, even when cop Clay West warns her she is messing with the wrong people. Clay realizes nothing he says will convince Violet to let the story die a quiet death and determines to protect her.

I hesitate to tell you more because I don’t want to give anything away. I’ve read this book twice and enjoyed it both times. If you’d like to read more about it check it out at
