The Book of the Month for JB

I know, it's about time I blogged...

Once again, our annual YaYa Sister trip brought my sisters and me together. Since we live so far apart, we plan a trip once a year to catch-up on our lives and families, as well as lots of talking, laughing, crying, sightseeing, and oh yes, eating. If you scroll down, there’s a picture of us at Charleston, SC. Last year we went to Myrtle Beach and this year we met in Greensboro, NC and drove to Williamsburg, VA.

I must admit, I love NC and its greenery. I know SC and VA are just as greeeeen, but there something about NC that stands out so beautifully. We ran around Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg, and with all its history, it took us back in time. I was fascinated with the Powhatan Indians and their history, maybe because my WIP is about a woman kidnapped by an Indian clan. My sisters and I had a wonderful time and I can’t wait for next year’s trip (we’re thinking Palm Springs, CA).

On my flight home, I had a long layover – great time to read, huh? Of course, I’m searching through the bookshelves looking for an author that I’ve had contact with and want to support. There among all the Nora Roberts books, I found Annie Solomon’s One Deadly Sin. (

After promptly purchasing Annie’s new release, I found a corner seat in the warm sunshine (you know how cold those airports are) and started reading. From the first page to the end, I couldn’t put the book down. Almost missed the boarding call! I usually start reading and get sleepy on a long flight to SLC from NC, but Annie’s book kept me wide-awake.

Edie Swann, a biker, tattooed woman returns to her hometown for revenge. As a small child, her father committed suicide, but she believes he was murdered. She’s determined to find out the truth. Edie sends a subtle reminder to the men on her list. The shake up causes a reaction and talk throughout the town. One by one, the men on her list turn up dead.

Sheriff Holt Drennen finds all the evidence pointing toward Edie. He can’t believe she’s a murderer. He’s torn between the desire for her and his sworn duty to protect the town.

I give One Deadly Sin a top five posy from my wildflower garden - a gripping, compelling story that’s well worth a read.


  1. Can't deny what an excellent book One Deadly Sin is. Loved it myself

  2. Well, gee, Judy, thanks a bunch! Glad to know I helped you get through that layover--and that you didn't miss the plane! Your sister trip sounded wonderful. My sisters and I tried that once and we had a good time, but I guess there's too much "stuff" between us and we haven't tried again. Sigh. I live vicariously through you!
