I hitched a ride on two blog tours and am so excited to start reading these books! On March 11, I’ll post a review for Ellen Byerrum’s newest installment in the Crimes of Fashion mystery series, Death on Heels. I’m especially interested in this book because Lacey Smithsonian is going back to her hometown in Sagebrush, Colorado. I can’t wait to see how she’s going to infuse her vintage ensembles with cowgirl flare! Thank you Samantha, of Chick Lit Pus, for inviting me on the blog tour!
I’m also posting a review for Kimberly Lin’s debut novel, Recession Proof, on April 2. I’ve read nothing but stellar reviews about this book from my fellow bloggers, so I’m sure I’m going to love it. I’m interested to see Helen’s journey from successful financial analyst to up-and-coming writer. Like Eat, Pray, Love, this is one personal transformation story that will probably make me think twice about getting too comfy with my station in life. Amanda over at Chick Lit = The New Black was kind enough to invite me along on the blog tour. Thanks, girl!
