Note: All of these save for Love Lettering are part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals, so grab them while you can! Love Lettering RECOMMENDED: Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn is $2.99 at Amazon! I think this deal started on Friday, so it could end very soon. Aarya gave this one an A: Love Lettering is a special book that I’ll hold close to my heart for a long time. It’s a quiet romance with quiet protagonists, but sometimes it’s the quiet moments that echo the loudest. In this warm and witty romance from acclaimed author Kate Clayborn, one little word puts a woman’s business—and her heart—in jeopardy . . .   Meg Mackworth’s hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing custom journals for her New York City clientele. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his polished fiancée was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. Meg may have thought no one would spot it, but she hadn’t counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid.   A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find…

The news is bleak right now and a lot of people are self-isolating to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Those things combined can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression and loneliness, and if you are feeling them, trust me, you are not alone. I’ve had to turn off the news almost entirely and have been talking more with my friends around the country than I have in years. I’ve also been knitting more to keep my brain and hands busy. I’m clearly not alone. Ravelry reported they had 420,000 pattern downloads on Wednesday March 18th (175,000 is typical). I normally socialize with my fellow knitters during knit nights and our twice monthly knitting and gaming group. We are still doing those things, but using technology to get together from our own homes. Our Friday night Knit Night will be held using Google Hangouts, which is a free way for people to hang out together and chat. For knitting and gaming we will be using Discord, also free, to video chat and Roll20 to play the game. Roll20 has paid and free versions depending on how you want to use it.

Three more Lightning Reviews on deck! We have some urban fantasy that is violent, but with a great cast of characters. There’s a contemporary romance that one reviewer couldn’t finish. Lastly, we have a nonfiction collection of real life romances.   B Fire & Water author: Alexis Hall Trigger warning: Lots of violence, death of major characters Fire & Water is the third urban fantasy novel featuring Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator. I have not read the previous books in this series, but I had no trouble finding my way into Kane’s world – she provides the necessary backstory in her laconic, humorous style, and it’s enough. Having said that, I’m not sure that it stands alone, precisely – the end, while not a cliff-hanger, does leave some pretty crucial things unresolved. The absolute strength of this book is Kate. She is a private investigator in the hard boiled (and lightly-pickled) mold, and her voice is dry, witty, and self-deprecating. She makes a lot of bad decisions and she knows she makes a lot of bad decisions, and she has a tendency, upon finding herself in yet another sticky situation, to comment to herself: Here lies Kate Kane. Something creepy with…
