I love to read! I always have a book I'm reading and a large (OK it's a mountain) of 'To Be Read' books. I read a lot of best sellers and I am always looking for new authors and love suggestions from friends. I exchange books with friends and family and of course I buy books while shopping yard sales and thrift shops.
I would like to introduce you to my friend Mary Kay Andrews(Isn't she cute). I first 'met' Mary Kay while browsing the Goodwill books and I found a cute paperback book SAVANNAH BLUES. Well living in Atlanta, GA and loving Savannah I thought I would pick it up and give it a read. Well I am here to tell you I had a hard time putting down this book. You know how when you find a new author how excited you can get? Times 10!!
The main character Eloise "Weezie" Foley is so cute and get this...she is a picker! Yep an antiques picker.
I am not going to tell you any more of the story so you will have to read this fun book!!!
I then when in search of all her previous books. I found several at different Thrift shops! I have enjoyed each and every one. I also buy each of her new books when published.Her books are witty, sharp and funny. Her characters grab you and keep you entertained.
Now more about my friend Mary Kay...she is a blogger! Yep so this is just kismet that I love her books so much. You too can visit her and become her friend (and one day I do hope to actually meet her) by visiting her
blog HERE . Mary Kay who was a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (newspaper) and went to the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs) also wrote 10 mystery novels under her real name Kathy Hogan Trochek. I tracked down all 10 of these books and enjoyed reading them also!! I have shared my love for her books with many friends and they have all enjoyed her writing. I hope you will think about reading a Mary Kay Andrews novel. She is currently at work on her new novel SUMMER RENTAL.
I hope you will visit each of the parties and view all the other fun posts today!
