After my last blog it seems appropriate that I recommend a romance. Problem is I don’t really care for most romances (the reasons for that can probably also be found in the below post). However after a little thought I realized that there is at least one glaring exception to that rule:
Annie’s Wild Ride by Alina Adams
It is one of life’s many injustices that this book is currently out-of-print. I just hope that eventually Avon will decide to capitalize on the well deserved popularity of Alina’s Figure Skating Mysteries by re-releasing the title with a new cover (sorry, but what’s the deal with the swan?). One of the things that I love about this novel is its heroine, Annie. Unlike so many romantic female protagonists, Annie isn’t a dewy eyed twenty-something damsel in distress/virgin. She’s a savvy, thirty-something Captain in the Air Force/single mom. The characters are complex and exquisitely developed. Of course you can buy the book used on Amazon for like a penny but I really encourage you to ask for it at your bookstore as well. Those requests are occasionally relayed to publishers which is of course a good thing.
