New Release from J.D. Robb Available Signed from Turn The Page Bookstore Cafe

This link takes you to the official author page:

“Festive In Death” by J.D. Robb will be arriving signed from Turn the Page Bookstore Cafe at soon.  The next in person book signing is scheduled for September 13, 2014

You can get the book signed in person at Boonsboro Maryland or virtually via the website (follow the rules on the website to indicate how you’d like the book signed).

I’ve been ordering signed books from virtually since last year at this time.  I always receive the books signed correctly and in good shape here in Minneapolis MN.

Hope all will take advantage of this opportunity to connect with the author.  I’m thankful that the service is provided.  If you get the chance to travel to Boonsboro MD – is a great brick and mortar business to visit and support.

Book Reviews Coming Soon

Hi All,

I haven’t forgotten my book reviews just have to make the time to write about the fantastic books I’ve read recently.

THE ROYERS OF RENFREW by Marie & Maxine Beckroyers

Just finished this book from a Nora Robert Book signing event and available at at this link

This is a wonderfully written account of one family’s experiences for one year living in the 1800’s in Pennsylvania USA.  Ups and down’s of growing up before there was indoor plumbing, electricity and hard wood floors.

I’ll write more about this book soon.  Catching up on all my blogs and finding it a pleasure to share my thoughts on the books I love to read.

All your comments are welcome.  Keep on reading and writing both lift the soul and spirit to learn, share and grow.
