Today at The Pink Heart Society, columnist Jenna Bayley-Burke is asking about the best book you read this year. She needs some great romances to distract her from surgery this morning. Help a sister out. What story made you feel better this year?
Odds are, as you're reading this I'm unconscious. Which is the only way to be if your angry intestine is being evicted. Long time readers of the PHS will recall my aggravating saga where my intestine wanted to be the center of my universe. I like my organs healthy and able to be taken for granted, thank you very much. So that is where I am headed.
No one signs up for this, but I have it dialed in. The best surgeon, great hospital nursing staff, and my folks are in town to help with the kids. All in all, it should go as smoothly as can be expected. And post recovery I'll be able to write more stories, since I won't be anchored down by antibiotics, pain medications, and ER visits.
Until I'm able to return to my regularly scheduled life, I'll be trying not to get bored and do too much too soon. And this is where y'all come in. I need book recommendations! Funny, sexy, happy books. Tear jerkers are for another time (I'm looking at you, Donna Alward).
Hit me with the best book you read this year. I know it's hard to pick one, so don't fret if you have a top 3. For me it had to be A Fair To Remember by Barbara Ankrum. I've been really impressed with Tule Publishing. The talent there is like a category romance readers dream team.
Jenna Bayley-Burke's latest release is a reissue of her first book, Just One Spark. European readers loved it back in the day, but North American readers couldn't get theirs eyes on the sexy rom-com until now.
