And being stopped for speeding changed her life.

Yep…that about sums up how Savannah Dey met Sheriff Scott Calvin. He’d stopped her for going seven miles over the speed limit. Oh…do…not…scoff. It happened all the time in the little town I used to live in!

“No…not a speed trap,” they’d say. “Just strictly enforcing the speed limit. For your safety.”

Pshaw.

Barbecue and Bad News will be the 6th Adams Grove novel and it comes out 2/10. You can pre-order it now though. Catch up on the whole small town series of love stories speckled with suspense…and by the way you can get Mint Juleps and Justice for just $1.99 for your Kindle the rest of this month!  

Welcome to Adams Grove…where the tea is sweet, but trouble is brewing!

Oh! If you want to be sure you get an alert when Barbecue and Bad News is out — add it to your Goodreads shelf by clicking here or go to Amazon and LIKE my Author Page here and Amazon will give you a quick email when I have any book coming out. Cool, huh? 

Hugs and happy reading!

Book Reviewers Are Special People!

Sounds like a perfect bumper sticker, doesn’t it?

So, it’s interesting to me that a lot of folks think they aren’t “qualified” to write a review of a book they’ve enjoyed. Gone are the days where a few select people wrote book reviews for the newspaper and special periodicals. Now, reviews are on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and just about any book buying website. Then, there are awesome online places like Goodreads.com and Library Thing or Shelfari that give readers a chance to not only share what they liked about the last books they read…but also connect with other readers that enjoy the same type of books — ultimately bringing awareness to other authors in the genres you enjoy.

The truth is … we are ALL “qualified” to write a book review.

It doesn’t even have to be long. Some of the most impactful reviews are very short. Here are a couple I really appreciated that were just posted yesterday!

If you’re not comfortable with it, though, there are other things you can do to help spread the word about the books you’ve enjoyed. You could go to Amazon.com and bring up the book and see the list of reviews there. Just click the YES this was helpful and you’ve done a little something to add weight to that opinion. :) 

Also, on Amazon.com scroll down to where there is a link to the Authors Page link::

Love is like sweet tea. The secret is all in how long you let it steep.

The Hero In My Mind

A funny thing about books is that sometimes we come out of reading them with the perfect image of what someone looks like. Sometimes…that’s because the author has told us exactly what someone looks like right down to the tiny freckle on their right ear lobe.

But often, the author leaves a lot of that to our imagination. I try to do that because I know that every girls hero does not look the same. Some of us like that sharp businessman that is hovering over the line of surpassing our own attention to fashion and details, or maybe a guy whose hands are as rough as sandpaper, or with muscles so practiced that they outline a perfect six – heck let’s make it an eight – pack tummy.

How do you like your hero?

And for those of you that have read Out of Focus AND/OR Pecan Pie and Deadly Lies … tell me who Sheriff Scott Calvin resembles in your mind!  This ought to be fun.

Christmas Tree – Traditional vs Themes

Over the years Christmas trees change with the times. When I was growing up we had a shiny silver aartifical tree. You poked long wire limbs into a shiny Carolina chrome wooden pole and waalaa…you were ready to plug in the spinny four-color light that would shine and shimmer like no tomorrow. Later my little brother would use that groaning lamp as a grow-light…but that’s a whole other story!  My favorite ornaments were bright turquoise glass that were shaped like a long teardrop. All of the balls were glass and we sure broke our share of them each year. The ones with the fake snow on them were always favorites, although I’m really not sure why because they always looked pretty dingy. Decorating the tree was a family affair, but I’m pretty sure my mom got stuck taking it down every year. ornament

Once our extended family became large, we made hand-made ornaments to exchange each year. It was lots of fun and Mom, my brother and I would start working on them late in the summer so we could have them all done by the big Christmas party. For years before I left home we were able to decorate our entire tree with homemade ornaments. Each had a story.

I still have a set of those ornaments and I love to sit in the floor and go through them. I can still almost remember who made each of them, and I’m always filled with the best feeling as I relive those memories.

I’ve had a live tree for as many years as I’ve been on my own…yeah we won’t do that math ;) … but this year I threw in the towel and bought a small table-top fake tree. The reasons were two-fold. My husband being sick and unable to join me in the big search combined with the fact that this will be our 10 month old yellow Lab, Cheyenne, first Christmas … was enough to make me give it a try. I ordered the tree online and it was delivered just two days later, right to my porch. Easy as pie. It has realistic limbs and it really is quite lovely. Thank goodness, Shining Sol candle company made a pine and spice scented candle so I am not missing out on that aroma. If I squint I can almost fool myself into believing it’s real.

I have one box of tiny 1″ glass ornaments in an array of colors just to spice things up …. but every ornament on my tree aside from those are western themed. My tree is filled with boots, saddles, stars, lasso’s, stirrups, lucky horseshoes and more cowboy Santa’s than you can count without taking off your shoes and borrowing your neighbors digits.

Here are some of my favorites!

If you’re still in the planning stages here’s a fun website with lots of cool ideas.  http://www.altogetherchristmas.com/decorating.html 

Do you decorate in a theme? A favorite something, color, or maybe even all homemade?  Tell me all about it…better yet…post a picture!!

Hugs and Merry Christmas~
