Sunrise” is the first book I’ve read by Susan May Warren, but you can bet your boots it won’t be the last!  As the first book in the “Sky King Ranch” trilogy from Revell, this novel swept me away to the Alaskan wilderness until I was so completely immersed that I couldn’t put it down if I tried.  And then, I found myself at a shocking, no-way-to-end-a-novel cliffhanger, so now I am counting the days until the second book, “Sunburst”, is released!

Journey To The Emerald Isle With A New Voice In Historical Fiction

I am always excited to meet a new author through the pages of their debut novel, and this month I became acquainted with the talented new voice of Jennifer Deibel. “A Dance in Donegal” was published by Revell earlier this year, and is a richly atmospheric story set in Ireland, 1921.
