Welcome to Patch’s new book blog! My goal is to get everyone excited about reading, while giving great book recommendations and holding a virtual book club environment where we follow two books a month.
Living near a city like Atlanta, there are plenty of opportunities to see authors, hear readings and go to events that promote a healthy reading atmosphere. So I'll keep you up to date on what's going on around town.
I have a wide range of types of books that interest me and will try to make sure we mix it up and hit most of the genres. But I insist that if a book pops up you wouldn’t normally read, please give it a chance. You just never know if you will enjoy it and find your new favorite author! Thinking, and reading, outside the box is half the fun.
I'll start September off by reading Montana Sky by Nora Roberts. There are few people who don’t like Nora, simply because she is an author that engages her reading audience but also covers almost every genre out there.
This book is about a man, Jack Mercy, who left behind a ranch worth twenty million dollars to his three daughters. Now these are not average sisters, as they were born to three different mothers and don’t know about each other. So they come together for the reading of the will and find out that to inherit any money, they must all live together on the ranch for one year.
All three sisters are extremely different and vary from Tess, who is from Hollywood, to Lily, who is on the run from her abusive ex-husband, to Willa, who actually grew up on the ranch and finds this situation intrusive. They will try and live together as a family and protect each other because there is an enemy trying to hurt them.
Let’s share a goal of finishing this book by the end of the month.
Next week I'm going to give three book recommendations and will stick with our author, Nora Roberts. She has so many to choose from that it won’t be difficult. I've enjoyed her writing for a long time and will pick books that vary in taste and style.
For now, let me leave you with a few questions:
- Do you have a book suggestion?
- What do you think of Nora Roberts?
- What book has influenced you the most, and why?
Hope that you enjoy this book and I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it!
