Two Books

When I started posting, I decided I would not have a favorite author. In the last three years I have grown a fondness to several. I love, love, love the pirate books by Mary Lu Tyndall. I read one recently and I'm now reading her latest. I love DiAnn Mills, Kaye Dacus and others.

I'm beginning to grow a fondness to anything written by Susan Page Davis. Susan lives close to me and we try to go out to lunch about once a month. She gave me one of her books as a gift one time and I laid it back thinking I would read it sometime.

Since I've not felt like doing much the last few days, I decided to take Frasier Island off the shelf and read it. The cover looks very military and I had decided that I would not like it, but I'd read it anyway. Now, don't judge a book by its cover. This is a military book, but WOW what a book. I was glued to it and the ending was not what I expected at all. There is so much action and intrigue in the book and I was spell bound by it.

It's about Navy Ensign Rachel Whitney who goes to a remote island on a secret project. She is the only woman with two men and she is pretty. Of course Lt. George Hudson who is in charge of the project falls in love with her, but he keeps his distance. If you like suspense and spying, read this book. Modern day, but wonderful. I give Susan five stars. I read it in less than two days.

After reading the last book, it was hard for me to go back to the western historical that Susan writes so well. I should say "hysterical" because that is what it is. The Gunsmith's Gallantry is full of action with the Ladies Shooting Club. This is the second one in the series. I laughed and I cried at the antics of those ladies and the men around them. This is by far the best historical that I have read of Susan's. I loved it and I give it five stars. My husband said it is the best one she has ever written. He loved it also. Susan does a wonderful job on all of her books.

I'm not doing a lot right now with my knees hurting so much. Today is the best day in a long time, but it still hurts. I'm in better spirits today and I was encouraged by several at church last night. I'm going to try to write a little more today.
