He’s Still My Baby


My Butterboo heard about the impending kittens and did what all spoiled children do when new babies are coming. He has reverted to infancy. He sat himself in the antique highchair yesterday. Isn’t he the cutest? He’s glad we saved Dead Meat, Goner, and Mud for the kitten names…………

Me, I went to the cute little library here this week. This town is so cute. Everything is tiny and cute. One gas station. One bank. One grocery store (with four aisles). One guy works at the tiny cute post office. He takes lunch at noon and they close up! I love the library. It doesn’t have any crap. Meaning, almost all it has is popular fiction, and plenty of it! Lots of new books in hardcover that I usually have to wait to get my hands on till they come out in paperback. I picked up: Eleven On Top and Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich, The Summons by John Grisham, and State of Fear by Michael Crichton. What to read first??? At the checkout counter, they had a whole stack of MY books! I had my son with me. I said, look–my books! He said, whatever…….. I went to Books-A-Million with my daughter this week, too. I dragged her over to admire the romance section and pointed out Deep Blue. I said, look, aren’t you impressed with your mommy? She said, can we GO?? At least the librarian thinks I’m cool…….

So what are you reading?

(Pssst! Check out the brand new Silhouette Intimate Moments authors site!)

    I have to read in between writing, which is tricky. But I just finished JD Robb’s latest Memory In Death. Love her as always.

    Well, I just finished reading “Cole Dempsey’s Back in Town.” It has been on my TBR pile (hangs head, forgive me?) 😳 forever and I had a long weekend in which I read “Cole”, Alison Kent’s “Goes Down Easy”, and MaryJanice Davidson’s “Undead and Unappreciated”. I am starting on Michelle Martinez’s “Most Wanted” tonight.
    “Cole” was most enjoyable. I must admit I had a sneaking suspicion of how it would turn out, then you threw that big ol’ red herring in there and tricked me! 😈 It was a very good plot twist, Suzanne. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Angie!!! That book made my head hurt, LOL!!

    Just finished Alison Kent’s “Goes Down Easy”, started on Karen Anders’ “Give Me Fever” last night. My TBR shelf is full …

    I’ve just been over drooling about the guy used in the “heroes to die for” part of the new Intimate Moments” site. Yummy! Cool website – thanks for the link!

    I’ve been reading Clive Cussler. I enjoyed the two books of his I got a lot more than I expected. Btw, I loved Janet Evanovich’s Metro Girl!

    Love the new SIM site!

    I’m almost done with Pamela Clare’s “Surrender.” I would say it’s a very spicy historical. Really extremely good. I received an ARC so it’s not out til next month.

    Right now, after finishing your PAX books last week :thumbsup:, I’m reading Vicki Hinze’s War Games Series from Bombshell. They’re actually my first Bombshells: “Body Double”, “Double Vision”, “Total Recall” in the anthology “Smokescreen” and the last book so far “Double Dare”. The anthology is from the library and it has to go back soon. That’s why I’m reading those right now. So far, I like the first better than the second book. However, that could be because I have had to spread out the reading on the second one while my sister was here helping me get a little more settled in my “digs”. The whole series is a great idea with an agency named S.A.S.S.

    I got an ARC from Pamela Clare, too, and would have read that right away if it hadn’t been for the library book. So that’s next on my agenda. We were sent that book in order to publicize it a bit. I also the like the time it’s set in: the French and Indian Wars which had impacts on both the U.S. and Canada.

    I also got a copy of Michele Martinez’s “Most Wanted” also with the idea of publicizing it more. It came out in hardcover earlier last year and is now out in pb. So those are my current and immediate TBRs.

    I think the kids get pretty blasé about their mother as author especially since you’ve been doing it all their lives. I can imagine, though, that if anybody else says to them, :rolleyes: “Are you the son/daughter of the writer Suzanne McMinn who writes such great books?” they’re pretty proud of you.

    I wish I’d read Fannie’s story before today. My sister took me out for supper in honor of my approaching birthday while she was here. We went to Swiss Chalet, one of our longer-lasting restaurant chains which I first went to in 1957. (Yikes that’ll soon be 50 years ago!) It features rotisserie chicken and more recently, spare ribs. As I was on my way to the washroom, I passed a sort of waiter’s nook and looked up. There sat a wooden rooster; I looked in the other corner, another one sat there. I had to smile because of your rooster. I made some remark to the waitress and we had a chuckle. Had I known Fannie’s reaction to a similar happening, I would have told her that story. :rotfl:

    I just read Pamela Clare’s “Surrender” ARC. I’d gotten away from historicals but I absolutely loved it! Think William Wallace Braveheart in 1750’s America. I also read Dorie Graham’s “sexual healing” trilogy… about 3 sisters and how their experiences with men/relationships/healing differ..interesting, new way of looking at sex. My TBR pile is huge…need to find more time to read! Next up…”Deep Blue”!!
