Friday Finds 7-10-2009 and a Tome Traveler

Here are my finds this week! (I am late posting because I got to go to an author talk today at our library - look for a post on it soon along with a signed giveaway and bag!)

The Twilight Before Christmas by Christine Feehan

I had seen a book earlier this week - Fever by Christine Feehan and so when I saw this book at our library's used book store, I had to buy it. I discovered it was the second book in the Drake Sisters series - see below for entire list. It sounds like it will read well alone though. Has anybody read this series?

About the book: Bestselling novelist Kate Drake is one of seven sisters gifted with amazing powers of witchcraft. Returning home in time for her northern California town's annual Christmas pageant, Kate catches the spirit of the season and decides to open a bookstore in a charming but run-down historic mill. Decorated former U.S. Army Ranger Matt Granite, now a local contractor, doesn't mind working in the undeniably eerie house - not if it means getting closer to Kate. There's something about the quiet, sensual woman that powerfully attracts him.

When an earthquake cracks the mill's foundation and reveals a burial crypt, Kate senses that a centuries-old evil has been unleashed. . .and that it's coming after her. Though Matt vows to guard her from dusk till dawn, Kate knows she will have to summon all of her and her sisters' powers to battle the darkness threatening to destroy both Christmas and the gift of soul-searing passion her hometown hero wants her to keep forever. . .(from the back cover)

About the author: Christine Feehan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty novels, including Wild Rain and the Dark Series, as well as numerous novellas, including The Twilight Before Christmas and "After the Music" in A Very Gothic Christmas, both available from Pocket Books. She lives in Cobb, California.

Have not read the book but have read several Feehan books. I will be interested to know what you think of this series.

What I am mostly interested in is your Author talk that you were able to attend at the library.

Ok...was the talk at WNPL? How about the used books you buy...from WNPL? If so, I really must take a visit. Yep...I think a visit is in order to WNPL.

I love Christmas books! In fact, I began collecting them about 2 years ago. I read them all year 'round!

This was my first CF book and it reads quite well on it's own. I have since gone on to her Dark series and everything else. I think I own 90% of her titles {blush}
