Well, Becke, you already know I'm a HUGE Jennifer Crusie fan . I also enjoy Janet Evanovich's books as well as Patricia Cornwell's. On my Christmas list this year are a couple of Brenda Novak's books and also one of Allison Brennan's. My to-be-read pile has dwindled lately and I need to add to my collection lol!

Wendy and I are both big fans of Jennifer Crusie's books. My favorites are probably Tell Me Lies and Bet Me, but I also love Welcome to Temptation and Faking It. And Fast Women. And I am soooo excited that The Cinderella Deal, one of Jenny's earliest books, is being reissued. They are romance rather than mystery, but I still highly recommend them.
Actually, some of her books do involve mysteries, including Agnes & the Hitman, Don't Look Down and some of the others. Here are a selection of her books for those of you who haven't discovered this fantastic author yet.

Jill - What would you like as your prize? One of Wendy's books, or a surprise book that I will send?
Becke, that is a loaded question. One of Wendy's books. OR. A copy of her new book

I don't know how to do your fancy pics but ...

Wendy, I just search images on the web. I use a PC, so I just right click and "Copy Image" then paste it in. It's trickier with pictures from your personal computer; only moderators can do that right now. Did Jill decide what she wanted as her prize? Should I email her?

We're going to have overlapping featured authors for a few days. Wendy and Brenda are featured through the end of December, but because Jan. 1 falls mid-week, our January featured authors will be checking in soon, too.
Wendy, before we get to the end of the month I want to thank you so much for joining us in December. I know how difficult it is to squeeze visits to our board in with your writing and all the usual holiday insanity, and I really appreciate you taking the time to do this!
I'm looking forward to reading your new book, but I admit I'm really hoping the Ghost Dusters will be back -- I'm soooo not ready for this series to end! I'm visiting with my daughter, and I'm looking at your books lined up on her bookshelf. So make that at least two of us who hope Sadie will be back!
I want to mention, also, that this thread will always be accessible to anyone who searches your name or book titles. Make a note of your view count and then check it out in a few months -- I'm always astonished how those numbers grow and grow!
I hope you will come back and visit when your next book comes out, and any time you have news -- awards, or whatever -- to share with us!
Are you going to any of the big conferences this year? I hope I'll get to meet you one of these days!

Thanks, Jill! Wendy said she'd send you one of her books as the prize, but in case you had them all I was going to offer an alternative of some kind. I'm excited that you want one of Wendy's books -- maybe you'll recruit a new fan!

Becke, it was hcrittenden who posted the answer to the first question that I was going to mail a book too. I haven't heard from her. Could you email and see if she'd prefer a book from me or another?
