Book love: Always the Hero

My friend, the uber-talented Anna J. Stewart, has a new book out, which is cause for celebration! It’s the latest in her wonderful Butterfly Harbor series. And check out the gorgeous cover!Cover image: Always the Hero by Anna J. Stewart

RT Book Reviews has said that Anna writes “refreshingly unique, quietly humorous, and profoundly moving romance.” Truly, I couldn’t have said it better myself. :)

A little saucy humor for your Friday. ;)

Miss Marple!

I can’t say I’m a fan of murder mysteries, yet lately I’ve found myself happily engrossed in a great fat volume of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple stories. What a wonderful character Jane Marple is! So demure, so self-effacing, yet so coolly brilliant and discerning.

She’s definitely one of those characters I’d love to meet in real life. It would be such fun to sit down and have a cuppa with her. :)
