In Target I found not one, but two books for my reading pleasure; one I was expecting and one that was a nice surprise. I was expecting, actually went in to the store specifically to buy, the new Stephanie Plum novel Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich:
“In the thirteenth book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious and hottest chase yet. With her loveably offbeat family along for the ride (as well as a few new faces), there’s no doubt that the Stephanie Plum novels put the fun in dysfunctional, and its clear to see why they’re called Hot Stuff by the New York Times and why Evanovich herself is called the master.” (Book description, Amazon).
I was pleasantly surprised to see the next installment of the St. Kilda series, Innocent as Sin, by Elizabeth Lowell (see Running with Quills):
“Kayla Shaw is a private banker in Arizona—smart and capable but underpaid and under appreciated. Rand McCree is a haunted man who paints landscapes in the Pacific Northwest, burning with a need for answers about the terrible event that shattered his world. They are two strangers with nothing in common . . . until their lives entwine—and explode.” (Book description, Amazon)
Now I have a new book for the plane to D.C. and another one for the return trip as well. Talk about a win-win book-buying situation. The hard part will be not reading one of them this evening …
Tomorrow is another errand day, but tonight I have one more important preparatory task, updating the music on my MP3 player for the flight. After all, I have new tunes to add including Big Dog Daddy by Toby Keith, Some People Change by Montgomery Gentry, Enjoy the Ride by Sugarland, and Let it Go by Tim McGraw.
