I have two new-to-me authors that grabbed my interest this year: Mariana Zapata and Lucy Parker. I also discovered that I hadn't read "Venetia" by Georgette Heyer (how did this happen?!) and promptly remedied that omission.

I don't think I can pin it to down to one book but here are a few of my faves: Matchmakers of Minnow Bay, We Are All Made of Stars (have tissues handy), Lord of Scoundrels (Finally!!), Act Like It and at least 5 Sarah Mayberry books that I got during the Harlequin sale. Most importantly, I finally got into using Goodreads faithfully to track my books.

A few books have really stuck in my mind months later. First, The Knickerbocker Club series by Joanna Shupe with its Golden Age setting and worthy heroes and heroines. Then there is Fortune Favors the Wicked by Teresa Romain which charmed me from the first page. A treasure hunt! Benedict! The Gambled Away anthology, especially the stories from Molly O'Keefe and Rose Lerner, made it one of the few added to my Keeper file this year. Finally, a magical women's fiction with Season of the Dragonflies by Sarah Creech. I read this story as I was relocating near the Blue Ridge, so the setting was close to new home, red Virginia dust and all.

I discovered Heidi Cullinan this year and have been devouring her back list: her Minnesota Christmas books have been the highlight of my holiday reading but her college ste "Fever Pitch" made me laugh and cry and is still my favorite.

I also loved Ilona Andrews' "Clean Sweep" which was delightfully funny. "For Real" by Alexis Hall was heartbreaking and beautiful.

I also really liked C.S. Harris latest historical St Cyr mystery "When Falcons Fall", Nalini Singh's 2016 novella Echo of Silence, and the most rewarding re-read was Courtney Milan's "Unveiled".
