Blog Hop / Follow Friday # 7

Laissez les bons temps rouler!  I'm from Louisiana and that means Let the good times roll! That's what I love about these BH and FF, it's a great time and you get to meet so many wonderful people.

Blog Hop Question: "Summer is coming quickly - what 2011 summer release are you are most looking forward to?"


My answer would be Blackberry Summer. I never read one of RoeAnne Thayne's novel. When I saw the cover and read the blurb, I really wanted to read this book.  It's an upcoming HQN release so it can be bought on their site as well as Amazon.

Blackberry Summer

Claire Bradford needed a wake-up call.


What she didn't need was a tragic car accident. As a single mom and the owner of a successful bead shop, Claire leads a predictable life in Hope's Crossing, Colorado. So what if she has no time for romance? At least, that's what she tells herself, especially when her best friend's sexy younger brother comes back to town as the new chief of police.
But when the accident forces Claire to slow down and lean on others—especially Riley McKnight—she realizes, for the first time, that things need to change. And not just in her own life. The accident—and the string of robberies committed by teenagers that led up to it—is a wake-up call to the people of Hope's Crossing. The sense of community and togetherness had been lost during those tough years. But with a mysterious "Angel of Hope" working to inspire the town, Riley and Claire will find themselves opening up to love and other possibilities by the end of an extraordinary summer….

Follow Friday Question:  Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on parajunkee.com, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

Oh, good one!
1. Bible
2. The Windflower - Laura London
3. Slightly Dangerous - Mary Balogh
4. Oh, lord, I'm still thinking Will add more in a bit.
