More Books to look Forward to: The friends edition!

So I have lots of friends who write...tis the joy and wonder of the interwebz. The last list was books that I'm looking forward to just cuz-- These books I'm looking forward to for more selfish reasons...namely they are the creations of the people I run to when I'm ready to give up on this whole writing thing.

A Shot in the Dark-- Book II of the Jesse James Dawson Series
By K. A. Stewart  TBR- July 5, 2011

Jesse James Dawson is a Champion, putting his life on the line for those foolish enough to bargain with demons and fighting to save their souls. But even a Champion needs some downtime, so Jesse takes his annual camping trip to Colorado for some male bonding over friendly games of paintball.

Unfortunately, the fun and war games are interrupted by a pack of creatures summoned up from the very depths of hell by an entity Jesse prayed he’d never see again. With the lives of his friends and a teenager’s soul on the line, Jesse’s only hope may lie with an even more dangerous enemy—his personal demon, Axel…

 **Ohhh I love a bang bang shoot'em up and this has all the elements! I'm going to have to catch up with A Devil in the Details though! I don't know how I missed it!**

Next is Evenfall by Liz Michalski TBR- Feb (?) 2011

Cross a Murphy woman and she'll haunt you the rest of your days.

 That's what they say in Hartman, Connecticut, where the Murphy women are known for their beauty, willfulness, and disastrous luck with men. No one knows the truth of this saying better than Frank Wildermuth. Fifty years ago, he fell in love with Gert Murphy, but through fate and bad timing wound up married to her sister. He spent the rest of his life quietly regretting his mistake. Now Frank's dead -- but not quite gone—and it's time to do some haunting of his own.

All Andie Murphy ever wanted was to get out of town. But she’s back to settle Evenfall, her Uncle Frank’s estate, where some things never change -- and some things have changed a lot. Aunt Gert, for example, still drives her crazy. On the other hand, Cort, the wide-eyed farmboy she used to babysit, is all grown up -- with a whole new definition for the word sleepover.

But if you're a Murphy woman, love never goes smoothly. As Andie struggles with her feelings, Frank sees a chance for redemption -- one that could cost his niece dearly. They'll both need to decide --

Is true love really everlasting? Is home just an address, or a place you carry in your heart? And if you truly regret your mistakes, can the long-buried dreams of your youth come alive again?

** This looks quieter than my average, but I love a good ghost story. Looking forward to reading it!**
