Book BIN Tuesday

Welcome to the very first Book BIN Tuesday!

What's Book BIN Tuesday, you ask? Well, BIN stands for Buy It Now, so it's my day to pimp a book I'm really excited about. :) It may be a hot-off-the-presses book coming out that day, or a book I just finished reading and loved. It could be an older title that's one of my favorites. The only thread tying these books together is that I think you should, well, Buy It Now.

And what's the first book I'll be highlighting? (Drumroll, please...)

This book came out a couple of weeks ago, and I ran out and bought it right away, even though I knew I wouldn't have a chance to read it for a while (the new day job is taking waaaaay more time than I'd anticipated). Now, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I can't wait to dive right in.

Why No Safe Place? Well, I adore JoAnn, both as a writer and as an all-around fabulous person. I'm on a writer's loop with her, and she's incredibly generous with her time and expertise. But beyond that, she writes a kick-ass story, whether it's a lyrical Irish love story or a pulse-pounding romantic suspense. I don't think I've found a single Ross book I haven't loved.

Plus, the story behind the story is fascinating, too. JoAnn was in the process of writing this New Orleans-set book when Katrina hit, so it got shelved for a while. I'm thrilled that it's finally here!

So I'm going to read it soon -- probably this week, once the day job paperwork is caught up. And I hope if you do Buy It Now, you let me know what you think!

I just started reading it... I love her stuff, usually, but have to admit to frustration at having the H/H miles apart at the beginning several chapters. I want them to meet, and want them to meet NOW! LOL... I'll be interested to see what you think of it.
