This week’s winners are Eliza Rosales and Kathryn Smith. Congratuations, both of you. As always, there’s a new contest underway as of today. All you have to do is comment and you’re automatically entered. There will be a random drawing, and two new winners will be chosen and notified by my niece/assistant, Jenni. I’ve been listening to a lot of books lately; guess you could call it a binge. Here they are: THE BOOKSELLER, by Cynthia Swanson. I could barely turn this one off, it was so fascinating. The story is truly original, all about the mysteries of time and dreams. THE UNIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY, by Rachel Joyce. This is an English novel, and even though I realized I’d read it before, I kept listening anyway. The characters touched my heart. THE THREE SISTERS, by Lisa Unger, who is one of my favorite suspense authors. This is a novella, really, a short but fascinating listen, spooky and gripping. ONE STEP TOO FAR, by Tina Seskis. This is another English novel, and I really enjoyed it. The story kept me guessing right up to the end–lots of twists and turns in this one. DINNER AT THE HOMESICK RESTAURANT, by the inimitable Anne Tyler. I loved this one, too–Tyler’s characters literally come to life on the page–or the screen of my iPhone. And finally, LAST ONE HOME, by Debbie Macomber. To my delight, the audiobook opens with an introduction read by Debbie herself. I’m only a little way in, but this is a strong, beautifully written book. I’m loving it, and not just because Debbie is one of my closest friends. Trust me, it’s great.
