Eagerly Awaited May Books

I knew Carla Kelly’s understated, beautifully written romances had reeled in a number of fans here at AAR over the years, but it looks like her latest novel – a Western this time – has almost all of us waiting eagerly. And then there’s Deanna Raybourn’s Spear of Summer Grass. I’ve noticed publishers have been putting out fewer and fewer historicals lately, but May seems to have some nice ones to choose from. And, as always, there are plenty of interesting-sounding contemporaries, category romances and other books to enjoy, too. What will you be reading?

As usual, I have quite the diverse group I’m looking forward to.

Before the Larkspur Blooms – Caroline Fyffe
Monument 14-Sky on Fire – Emmy Laybourne
Whisper’s Edge- LuAnn McLane
Happy, Happy, Happy, Phil Robertson (Duck Dynasty bio)
Deeply Odd – Dean Koontz

I’ll have to check out Carla Kelly’s western, as I love westerns!
