Shannon was having difficulty posting, so she e-mailed me her post. Pour yourself a big ol’ glass of sweet tea and take a look at Shannon’s Southern Fried Good Reads. –Lorna
I’ve discovered two authors in the last few years that I really enjoy. Great news, they both have new releases this fall.
I’ve read almost all of Denise Hunter’s books and loved all of them. Can’t wait to read this one.
The Trouble with Cowboy’s – Denise Hunter – Oct 1, 2012
Annie refuses to fall for a sweet-talking cowboy. But when her boss throws her a curveball, there’s only one person who can help.
Annie Stevens is the premier horse trainer in Moose Creek, Montana, and writes a horse advice column to help put her little sister through college and to support her young nephew. Money’s tight, so when the vexing Dylan Dawson needs assistance with a blinded horse, it’s not easy to turn down the extra cash. But turn it down she must, for her own sanity.
Then Annie’s editor tells her she must change her column to a lovelorn column. Annie-who’s never been in love-knows she needs help fast. And no one is more qualified for the job, unfortunately, than the smooth-talking, lady-charming Dylan Dawson.
Tension builds as they work together on both projects. As Annie’s life begins falling apart around her, she realizes she needs to let God have control, and she fights to put aside her prejudice toward cowboys-no easy task with Dylan’s unwavering attention. The last thing she needs is to fall for a man who would only break her heart. And she knows he will because that is the trouble with cowboys.
The other book I’m looking forward to this fall is by Jennifer Rogers Spinola. I’ve read Southern Fried Sushi and Like Sweet Potato Pie. These books take Shiloh Jacob through a journey. She starts out as a spoiled, all about me non-believer and ends up transformed. Her transformation is heart-warming, comical, and adventurous. Sounds like the final book in the series has an element of suspense.

In the midst of sorting through her tragic past and strained relationships, Shiloh finds herself on the run from a madman—and hoping she can make it to her wedding alive.
