*May* have started hoarding books a little bit because having spent everyday for 6 years surrounded by books I was trying to recreate the experience in my own home. LOL. I probably need some kind of book related therapy.

Match Made in Court by Janice Kay Johnson.
Part of the “Suddenly a Parent” mini-series
Super Romance 1620
Linnea Sorenson always played second fiddle to her brother Finn, but when he is accused of killing his wife Tess, she takes his 6 year old daughter into her home. Nothing about this is easy, she is often at odds with her parents and brother.
She is challenged for custody from Tess’s brother Matt and when they are awarded joint custody the sparks start to fly. Her family hates him, and he is none to fond of the them either. Even with all of this animosity, he starts to care deeply for Linnea. Will she return his feelings?
This is a great story about what makes a family and what we would do for those we love.
Janice Kay Johnson is a great author, I love the pacing of her stories and she comes up with some great plots. Super Romance is my favorite Harlequin imprint. I love the stories of love and family; they are just as good, if not better than most single title romances.

Here is my June reading list. Sad list that it is.
1. No Time For Goodbye- Linwood Barclay. This is a suspense/mystery book. I know it sounds cliche but I could not put this one down. I like that the story was told from the point of view of the husband, I think it kept the the suspense high. I recommended this one to my Mother, the librarian and she loved it too.
2. A Secret Rage- Charlaine Harris. Very early Charlaine Harris mystery, nothing as good as the Sookie series, or even the Lily Bard series, but still a good read. Not a happy story by any means, but still worth a read.
3. Delicious- Sherry Thomas. I am becoming a fan girl for Sherry Thomas. I really enjoyed Delicous and these books have renewed my interest in historicals.
4. The Influence- Ramsay Campbell. About once a year I get in the mood for a horror story. Not just Stephen King who I would read anytime, but a really intense, scary, keep you up at night horror story. This was not it.
5. The Price of Pleasure- Kresley Cole. A book about a girl shipwrecked on an island? The LOST fan in me just had to read this book. Of cousrse this is historical romance,not strange mysterious t.v. show, but I was game. This books started really strong for me. I loved the scenes on the island and the thrill of the chase was fun, but about halfway through I just started getting bored. Mostly I wanted to beat the hero with a clue stick. Still not a bad read, certainly not the worst I have read this year.
6. 84, Charing Cross Road- Helene Hanff. I am an Anglophile, so I grabbed this book as soon as I got it in. It is short but very sweet. Over the course of 20 years the author had a correspondence with the employees of a rare bookstore in London. Originally she sends an inquiry to this store looking for some English literature that she cannnot find stateside. Her main correspondent was a man named Frank Doel and he kept her in books for the next two decades. Very quick read, but will stay with me for sometime.
