Jo’s Picks for July

The Last ChildJuly has some great new books coming out that readers will be looking forward to reading. New books by Alex Kava and Daniel Silva I highly recommend to readers. Silva’s is titled The English Girl and Kiva’s is Stranded. I am also picking The White Princess by Philippa Gregory for fans of English history. Other new books include The Highway by C.J. Box, Death Angel by Linda Fairstein and James Lee Burke’s The Light of the World. As the Readers Advisor readers are always recommending authors to me and I am always happy to pass on their suggestions. Recently one of our readers told me that he had been reading John Hart who writes mysteries. He said that The Last Child by Hart was one of the best mysteries he has ever read So I thought I would pass this along to those of you who are always looking for a new author to read. Hart’s other books are The King of Lies and Down River. While I can’t read everything readers recommend to me I am always happy to hear when they have discovered a new author. Nothing pleases me more than to hear from a reader who tells me that they have loved an author I have recommended to them. Enjoy the rest of summer with a good book!


Jo’s Picks for April

Image of item Daddy’s Gone a Hunting by Mary Higgins Clark, and Protector by C. J. Cherryh are also new arrivals..  Other new books by Nora Roberts, James Patterson, and Kristin Hannah will also be arriving.  
If you haven’t read a John Grisham novel then you have missed some great reading.  Grisham writes fascinating legal thrillers.   Grisham practiced law for several years, but gave up his practice after the success of his second novel The Firm which was a bestseller.  He has written some twenty-five novels and many of them have been made into successful movies.  His novels include The Pelican Brief, The Rainmaker, and A Time to Kill.  I have read several of his books and also have enjoyed Skipping Christmas and Playing for Pizza which are not thrillers.  Checkout Grisham and enjoy a master of the legal genre.

Jo’s January Picks

If you’re in the mood for a little western fun then Linda Lael Miller is a “must read” author. Her contemporary western fiction includes some of the best romance series that can be found. Known as “The First Lady of the West,” she is a New York Times bestselling author.  
If you haven’t read any of Linda Lael Miller’s books I am recommending her Montana Creed series about four brothers who find the women who can lasso their hearts. The first book in the series is Logan followed by Dylan, Tyler and Lincoln. Each story is a fun read and will have you turning the pages and staying up late to finish them. If you like this series you should also read her newest series titled Parable, Montana. The first book in the series is titled Big Sky Country followed by Big Sky Mountain and Big Sky River.   
Checkout Linda Lael Miller and enjoy an evening of western fun!
