The best of the year is one of my favorite posts to do but its also one of the most difficult. How do I narrow down the many outstanding novels that I read this year to the best? What follows are some of my favorite reads this year in no particular order, and if any fall into your genre, you should pick them up. These are novels that deserve to be read.
I hope that everyone is having a great time preparing for the holiday season.
Some of you will know that I am a bit behind on posting reviews. I’m going to try to catch up a bit tomorrow before we leave for a well-needed vacation. The good news is that I have very little scheduled for the next two weeks and a very lot of “in car” time. I not only hope to catch up but get ahead for the new year. If you have a review pending with me and we are beyond the date, I will be posting your review before the end of the year.
Thank you for your patience, and I hope that all of you have a truly magical holiday, and I will be sure to have a coffee for each and every one of you. 🙂
In closing I would like to thank Rangewoman Inc. for her invaluable advice and help this year. The clean look of my reviews can’t be attributed to my grasp of the English language. Be sure to follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
Title: Star of Bethlehem (Flowering holiday novella)
Author: Sarah Daltry
Release Date: November 18, 2013
Publisher: SDE Press Synopsis:
Jack isn’t a rock star. He’s not the leader of a MC. He isn’t a billionaire. Lily’s not the daughter of a mob boss, or a stripper, or a virgin with a BDSM fascination. They’re just regular college kids, who somehow found each other in the middle of all the crap and chaos of growing up.
“With you, Jack, it was the first time I ever felt real. It was the first time anyone looked at me and saw substance. It was the first time I wanted to make someone see me.”
Jack Bailey is just a few weeks away from beginning his dream career as Forest Ranger in the upstate New York town of Angel’s Bend. Jenny Rudea, veterinarian in training, is madly in love with Jack, and the animals she cares for.
On the way home from her house one night, Jack takes an unanticipated detour to Hosner Lake. While there, he encounters something that raises the hair on the back of his neck. What is out there, on the other side of the lake? Is it a shadow, a hunter, a wolf? Without a weapon or a flashlight, he is not about to stick around to find out.
