MY TWO CENTS: Well this was just a lot of fun! Since I've read some of these, one thing that I always appreciate is when a cover matches the story -- and I am pretty sure all of these do. Notice the final two covers of the Sawbones series are here -- nothing purdier than the whole dang set sitting side-by-side. I remember when I first read The Grave Tender, I kept waiting to figure out where the cover fit in with the story. It was a real ah-ha moment. I know that the sassy cover to The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck was a perfect complement to that story -- I could tell by reading all those awesome special features we had on the tour. And I remember everyone falling in love with the dog in Sandpiper Cove, so this winner is not a surprise.

MY TWO CENTS: When I say that I love my job, I mean it. Over the span of six or eight weeks - about how long it takes to build one of our fabulous blog tours - I have the privilege of getting to know many of the amazing authors that go on tour with LSBBT. We put a lot of work in beforehand, but the best of the best also put in considerable work during their tours to interact with the bloggers and the readers so that their tours are taken to the next level. I really admire these four people for their commitment to their craft -- and for just being all-around excellent humans. I've only met one of them in person -- DiAnn was kind enough to schmooze for pictures with me at the 2017 TLA Conference after we toured Deep Extraction, but when we finally meet, Ben has promised to hike in Big Bend with me, Melissa has promised to drink an adult beverage (or several) with me, and Linda and I are probably going to hug, burst into tears, and watch a coffee date turn into a lunch date turn into a dinner date -- and then we'll just repeat the next day! LOVE them all. (And a whole lotta others.) Aww, shucks. Now I'm having all the feels.
