the weddingLinda Bennett has lived a charmed life. With her husband being a rich tycoon, she’s been showered for decades with wealth and privilege. While the bad economy has ruined many of their acquaintances, they’ve been extremely lucky, both in their marriage and their finances. Or so she thinks.

When her daughter decides to marry—too young and too fast for Linda’s liking—Linda’s husband claims he doesn’t want to flaunt the family’s good fortune. He convinces the bride to skip the expensive, ostentatious ceremony and instead host a small, intimate affair at his members-only private club located on the Mexican coast. But from the moment the guests begin to arrive, the entire event seems cursed. Linda’s husband keeps disappearing for hours on end, the groom’s divorced parents are certifiable, and the groomsmen drunken idiots. And when one of the bridesmaids sets her sights on the sexy groom, all bets are off.

Will the bride make it to the altar? New York Times bestselling author CHERYL HOLT—with her fast pacing, dazzling dialogue, fascinating characters, and infuriating villains—will keep readers guessing to the last page.

Jeannie Lin focuses on Tang Dynasty China in her historicals. THE LOTUS PALACE is the first in her in her Pingkang Li mysteries.  As a fan of the Judge Dee mysteries I’m really looking forward to this series.  Blurb & pic from authors site.


It is a time of celebration in the Pingkang Li, where imperial scholars and bureaucrats mingle with beautiful courtesans. At the center is the Lotus Palace, home of the most exquisite courtesans in China… 

Maidservant Yue-ying is not one of those beauties. Street-smart and practical, she’s content to live in the shadow of her infamous mistress-until she meets the aristocratic playboy Bai Huang.

Bai Huang lives in a privileged world Yue-ying can barely imagine, yet alone share, but as they are thrown together in an attempt to solve a deadly mystery, they both start to dream of a different life. Yet Bai Huang’s position means that all she could ever be to him is his concubine-will she sacrifice her pride to follow her heart?

I’ll be reviewing THE LOTUS PALACE in October.

the grand opening

When Peggy McBride moves to Dare Valley, Colorado, the last thing she wants is to meet a man. If she’s learned one thing from her divorce, it’s that love is a messy business, and as a single mom and the new deputy sheriff, she has her hands full. But when hotel magnate and poker player Mac Maven moves to town, she becomes enthralled by the very last man she would ever consider dating… Mac Maven has come to Dare with ambitious plans for his new project, the restoration of The Grand Mountain Hotel as a boutique poker venue. Only one person offers him a less than warm welcome: Deputy Sheriff Peggy McBride, who is dead set against gambling. But although Peggy’s a fierce opponent, Mac senses a tenderness and passion within her that he longs to free. Having helped his sister raise her teenage son, he understands Peggy, and can see past her tough–as–nails exterior. When a threat to Mac’s hotel surfaces, he and Peggy must join forces to find out who’s responsible. Working together ignites the white–hot connection between them, and their cooperation takes a decidedly personal turn. But can Mac convince Peggy to set their differences aside and take a gamble on love?
