Hola, Book Dragons, can you believe I was drafting this post last night to schedule it for today and then I left to wash the dishes and when I came back, the post had published itself? With all the mistakes that still needed correcting. *groan* I mean, what the hell? Does my laptop have a ghost or something? This does not bode well, especially after the ghost nightmare I had on Saturday.
Though I deleted the published post, I am mortified that this happened when I always take so much care to edit my drafts and preview several times before publishing. 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️ Anyway, I can’t do anything about it now but apologies to anyone who saw that blasted still-draft-post on their blog feed.
Now let’s get to the good part! I’m currently reading the ARC of Hideaway by Nora Roberts. 😍😍😍 OMG, it feels so good to read NR’s writing again! Idk how she does it but she always makes me feel good when I read her words.
I’d been feeling like I was losing the ability to read books, especially after how Dark Shores and Dark Skies tanked on me but Hideaway totally disabused me of that idea. I STILL LOVE BOOKS, THANK GOD!!! (I want to shout that from the roofs lol.)
A family ranch in Big Sur country and a legacy of Hollywood royalty set the stage for Nora Roberts’ emotional new suspense novel.
Caitlyn Sullivan, a daughter of Hollywood royalty, was already a star at ten, but still loved to play hide-and-seek with her cousins at the family home in Big Sur. It was during one of those games that she disappeared.
Despite her glamorous background, Cate was a shrewd, scrappy survivor, and she managed to escape her abductors. Dillon Cooper was shocked to find the bruised and terrified girl huddled in his ranch house kitchen—but when the teenager and his family heard her story they provided refuge and comfort, reuniting her with her loved ones.
Cate’s ordeal, though, was far from over. First came the discovery of a betrayal that would send someone she’d trusted to prison. Then there were years away in Ireland, sheltered and protected but with restlessness growing in her soul. Then, finally, she returned to Los Angeles, hoping to act again and get past the trauma that had derailed her life. What she didn’t yet know was that two seeds had been planted that long-ago night—one of a great love, and one of a terrible vengeance…
Hideaway will be released on 26 May. What about you guys, what are you currently reading?
