The Lone Star Book Blog Tours team has voted, and the results are in! From Best Fiction to Most Engaged Author, we have seventeen awards to hand out to the awesome Texas books and authors featured on Lone Star Book Blog Tours in 2017.
MY TWO CENTS: I read and reviewed (click to view) four of these titles on tour and they were truly highlights of the year. I thought Eliza Maxwell had knocked it out of the park on The Unremembered Girl, but then she blew me away with The Grave Tender! (And now I am anxiously awaiting The Widow's Watcher, coming on tour in May!) ALSO coming on tour, Alexia Gordon's next book in the Gethsemene Brown series, Killing in C Sharp. I absolutely loved the smart, quirky ghost-seeing, musically inclined, quirky Gethsemane when I met her in Death in D Minor! I need to go back and read book one. Hidden Sea was AMAZING, and the setting where I read it (on the beach!) didn't hurt either. I really enjoyed the leap from North Shore, the book before, to this one fifty years later and still following the same family. I've been gushing about Bonnie and Clyde: Resurrection Road pretty much every day of the Awards -- have you noticed the book keeps coming up? There's a reason! I haven't read Bombshell (yet), but I have read books 5-7 (Hell to Pay on tour) and cannot wait to keep going in the What Doesn't Kill You series! And yes, yes -- I have GOT to read DiAnn Mills since all the LSBBT bloggers highly recommend her books. NOT ENOUGH TIME IN THE DAY to read all these fab books.

MY TWO CENTS: I have gushed about Melissa Lenhardt's Sawbones Trilogy enough, but I was super excited to see Comfort Plans show up on this award. Kimberly Fish nailed the setting and characters in this book. I miss them both! Sadly, I didn't get to read any of these other books...you know where they are (the ever-toppling TBR pile).

MY TWO CENTS: Looks like I have identified a gap in my reading spectrum. Yes, I read B&C:RR (have I mentioned that I loved it? no?), but I missed all three of these others, all of which really had our bloggers talking. Yes, yes -- on the TBR list.
