Washington Needs a Little Romance!

With all the turmoil going on on Wall Street and Washington, it's comforting to know that we can escape to a little inspiration, romance and even suspense! Here at the CRAFTIE Ladies of Suspense, we love all three! I know I sure do. I was excited to receive my box of books from and began reading Margaret Daley's October 2008 release Foresaken Canyon. The book has followed me around all day. I'll keep my blog short and sweet today because I'm enjoying the book so much I do want to get back to it. Make sure you come back to see the character interview from either Kit or Hawke (I can't wait to see who Terri Reed interviews!). Once I'm done with Foresaken Canyon, I'll be sure to head back over to eHarlequin to list my books in the 100,000 book Challenge to add the books I've read recently. Remember, if eHarlequin gets 100,000 books logged in by readers, they will donate 100,000 to literacy. Having worked with special ed kids in grades 1 and 2 teaching them to read I can say that it is not only a great cause but a very satisfying one. Help give the gift of reading to someone and participate at!

I'm so glad you are enjoying Forsaken Canyon. I had so much fun writing this book.

I am trying to do my share of reviewing on eHarlequin book challenge. My problem is not in the reading but in the posting. I like to read much more than review a book.

Ellen, if you take a look at my view reviews you'll see I don't post a whole lot. The posting of the book is more important than the review. I'm always tempted to just say, "loved it", and leave it at that!
