I had the pleasure of seeing Rebecca Rasmussen, author of Evergreen and The Bird Sisters, at a local book store event last Wednesday. In addition to being an amazing author, she’s a wonderful person. If Rebecca comes to your area, go see her! Check out her tour schedule.

  1. It does look like Christmas in July LOL wow! I was able to get an eGalley of the new Donna Van Liere Christmas book this week, I enjoyed Rebecca’s R’s first book so hope to try Evergreen — great pic Mary.


  2. Nice collection of books! I recently read “The Orphans of Race Point” and really enjoyed it. Happy reading, Mary!


  3. How exciting to meet Rebecca! I will be reading Evergreen this week, as you know, and loved The Bird Sisters.

    You have some great books to look forward to…I want to read The House We Grew Up In.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!


  4. Just finished reading The Homecoming.. and I think Robyn has outdone herself with this one.. I just think I have a fav Thunder Point book and then wow, she hits us with another great read…


  5. Ha! I saw all the covers and immediately had the reflex to check back on the date of your post! It definitely feels christmassy here – but on some very hot days of summer, it feels good to think of the winter days. Enjoy your new books!


  6. Pretty covers, Christmas in July reading is great in Australia, at least the weather matches up with all the snowy covers. Lovely photo of you with Rebecca, must check out her books. Have a wonderful week and happy reading 🙂


  7. Brrr, I see snow on those covers. Yeah, I’d wait a little while to read them too.

    How nice that you got to meet Rebecca – and a photo opp too!


  8. What great selections! Makes me want to go straight to NetGalley and get those and some of your others too. Must try to resist. Hope you have a great week!


  9. Ahh! I finished THE HOMECOMING a couple of weeks ago. Was my first Thunder Point book- but really enjoyed it.
    And eek! I’m excited to see MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS- I LOVE the O’Neill brothers!


  10. I had such a lovely time with you last week! Thank you so much for coming, M. I always LOVE seeing you, my dear! xoxoxox
