Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

I have a brand new romance novel available for Nook.

Mountain Laurel is the first of my backlist books. This book was previously published by Silhouette. It's a sweet romance, suitable for any romance reader between the ages of 15 and 105. :-)

 

This book finaled in Romance Writers of America's Golden Heart contest.

 

I hope you'll download a sample and see if the story is something you might enjoy. And look for more Donna Clayton romance novels coming soon!!

 

Thanks!

~Donna~

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

The Larsson books are a trilogy, yes.  I just finished "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and it just gets better and better as it goes along.  The first chapter is boring, but you can safely just skim it and you'll get a good idea of what you need to know for the rest.  Lisbeth Salander ROCKS!  And so does Mikael Blomqvist.  We could sure use a journalist like him here in the U.S.!

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

PS I wanted to add that I also write women's fiction as Donna Clayton. The Merry-Go-Round is a humorous look at divorce and love. 

 

All professional attorney Lauren wants is to step off the merry-go-round of marriage, and she's stunned when she wins a dilapidated carousel in the divorce settlement. Charmed by the vintage contraption, she decides to refurbish the circus animals. Her world is also inundated with a cast of delightful but crazy clients. Will Lauren let life continue to spin her in circles, or will she reach out and grab the brass ring?

 

 I hope you'll check it out!

 

The Merry-Go-Round    

 

All the best,

~Donna~

Hi Vermot,

I just finished the Stigs Larsson trilogy today.  Most people thought the Hornet's Nest was not in line with the first two books, but I thought it had such a human side to it.  He made all the main characters so, so real and brought out the best in all of them.  What a team the good guys were.  In fact, in retrospect, I liked the Hornet's Nest the best.  He was definitely a genius. 

 

Between reading these three books in the past six months, doing Three Seconds in the FL and then reading The Man from Beijing, my brain is pretty fried.  My library book club is meeting this coming Thursday for The Great Gatsby.  I was still in the roaring 20's frame of mind from The Vixen when I reread Gatsby and wish everyone from FL could be with me for The Gatsby discussion.  Even though my library group is quite analytical, it's still not the "FLers".  

 

One can only dream...when is the next FL?

Yours, Lit

Re: Welcome to the Community Room!

 

I've been trying to locate the schedule for the next (March) selection in General Fiction but can't find it.  I tried to reserve Saving Max from my library but have yet to be called and the discussion has already started.  Help!

Thanks
