It is official - I have been bitten by the Christmas bug!

I know it is early.... but I have officially been bitten by the Christmas bug. There is a fresh dusting of snow on the ground and the library is already partially decorated for the holidays. This is the time of year when many authors offer up their yearly Christmas book and I hope to read new titles as I catch them and share my thoughts with you. Luckily, most of the books are short and sweet and very easy reads. My first selection is An Island Christmas by Nancy Thayer.

Sometimes authors surprise us...

I have long been a fan of author Susan Elizabeth Phillips. Her romance stories are written with style and grace, and most times love conquers all when the story comes to a happy ever after ending. She certainly surprised me with her latest book, Heroes are My Weakness. Even though the title hints at a romantic setting, this one has a much darker and serious feel to it. In some ways, the beginning had elements of classic gothic romances like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

Can you build a crazy golf hole?


Golf fans know it. Movie fans, too. It’s the scene in the comedy Happy Gilmore when Adam Sandler has to hit his golf ball through a massive pile of wreckage to sink the putt and win the tournament. Spoiler alert: It’s ridiculously funny.
