New Book from One of My Favorite Writers, Tosca Lee

I discovered Tosca years ago when I found her book Havah, The Story of Eve at a Lifeway Christian Book Store. I could not put it down! I then read, Demon. It is not what you might think...loved it!  Then there was Iscariot and The legend of Sheba. I devoured them all and kept the books. I only keep books that I loved so much I can't part with them.

Tosca wrote a series of Books with Ted Dekker that I started but honestly, they were too dark for me as were Progeny and Firstborn but they all made best seller lists so you need to check them out for yourself.

Her new novel, The Line Between will hit bookstores and Amazon soon. I've pre-ordered it. Can't wait to read it. You can read the first chapter on Amazon at the link above.

Here is Tosca's Goodreads page with more information about her and her books: Tosca Lee on Goodreads 

I'd love to hear from you and what books you love! Post a comment below and I promise to read it.

My Suggestions for Winter Reading

I have more time to read in winter. I know I should be writing, but there are just so many books!

Here are some on my list and some I've already read.
I am reading "A Dog's Luck: A Love Story and a Family Saga Intertwined" it is really good and I'm having a hard time putting it down. The writing style is different from anything I have read. It is almost poetry but still very readable. If you like family drama and dogs, this one is for you. 
Here's what Amazon says about this book:

A story of love, separation and longing
A Dog’s Luck is a unique, moving and thought-provoking work of literary art that deals with existential issues in a heartfelt, high-tempo and dynamic style. It touches on love, separation and longing, in an expressive, multi-layered language that provokes the readers to reflect upon subtle nuances of their own inner worlds."

It is a fun read full of adventure, mathem, monsters and Giants! If you liked Harry Potter, you will like this. I plan to read the others in this series too.

I've written about "cozy" mysteries before and I just read another good one. 
Amazon says: Jade’s promising career comes to an unexpected halt when a hacker targets her friend and fellow blogger, Liz, destroying her livelihood and reputation. But the intrusion doesn’t stop there. The mysterious hacker, known only as Connie, is a stalker, and now she has her eyes on Liz’s three children. Before Jade can even begin to investigate, Connie is found… dead in Liz's kitchen. To the sheriff's department, the case is cut and dry. Now Liz is in jail, and Jade is the only one who can free her. 

On my list to read next are: To Catch a Butterfly by T.M. Payne, Catalyst by Michael C. Grumley and The Eye of Moloch by Glenn Beck

These should get you started. Comment below and tell us your favorite winter reads.

Richard Paul Evans- If Only

Richard Paul Evans is one of my favorite authors. I recently came across If Only at the Goodwill Store.  As we say here in the south, I jumped on it like a chicken on a June bug, 

I read it in 3 days. I would have finished it sooner but it's the holidays and I have a ton of work to do.

This is a story of first love, wounded hearts, abuse and desperation. It's about coming of age in the sixties, family abuse, redemption and innocence.

From Grace's diary: Today I asked Eric to be my boyfriend. I know it's supposed to be the other way around but he's shy and it would probably take a hundred years otherwise and by then I might have changed my mind.  

The ending was not what I was expecting...I won't ruin it for you. Grab a copy and plan to stay up a few nights to finish it. Amazon link here or maybe you will get lucky at the thrift shop like I did. .
