Earlier this week, I had a successful trip to Washington DC (link). The next day, not so much. I showed up at a facility that was not hosting a new hire fair that week. Arg ... I combated DC traffic for nought!
Later in the afternoon, I walked to the bank, tripped over a displaced sidewalk, and scrapped up my knee. I hobbled home and cracked open Diane Kelly's LAYING DOWN THE PAW, Book 3 in the Paw Enforcement series. I enjoyed the first two books in the series, PAW ENFORCEMENT (link) and PAW AND ORDER (link).
I often read the acknowledgement page - I am always curious who inspired the author. Yet I landed on the "praise" page with reviewer's quotes:
Funny and acerbic, the perfect read for lovers of Janet Evanovich. - Librarian and Reviewer
Humor, romance, and surprising LOL moments. What more can you ask for? - Romance and Beyond
Fabulously fun and funny! - Book Babe
An Engaging read that I could not put down. I look froward to the next adventure of Megan and Brigit! - SOS Aloha on PAW ENFORCEMENT
Sparkling with surprises. Just like a tequila sunrise. You never know which way is up or out! - Romance Junkies on PAW AND ORDER.
Wait a minute ... SOS Aloha is me! Thank you Diane Kelly and St. Martin's Press for including my reviewer quote!
This is the first time my blog name has appeared in a book. My personal name has appeared several times. In 2007, I won a character's name from Bobbi Smith at the RT Booklovers' Convention in Houston. I am a school marm in WANTED! THE HALF BREED. My college friends thought I should have been the saloon wench ... they know me well!
In 2014, Cathy Maxwell dedicated THE BRIDE SAYS MAYBE to me,
