Iâ€™m on the road (and occasionally in the air) with my family for almost a month, trailing my hubby around the USA as he works, plus taking some vacation time. Our journey includes 10 days meandering in the South. Iâ€™m hoping to have lots of lovely reading time…which means I need lots of lovely books!
It makes sense to read some Southern-themed novels, right? To get myself in the mood for the trip, I recently re-read To Kill a Mockingbird, which blew me away with its wonderfulness. Not one false note in that book. Somewhat more contemporary but equally Southern, I just finished Into the Corner, by Marisa Carroll, the latest in the Harlequin NASCAR series â€“ Iâ€™m loving this series, and not just because I wrote for it!
I have In This Mountain, by Jan Karon in my suitcase…but I need more! Iâ€™m hoping to find The Goddess of Fried Okra, the new book by Jean Brashear, in a bookstore soon, plus the last two books in the current Harlequin NASCAR series, Raising the Stakes by Wendy Etherington, and Crossing the Line, by Jean Brashear, both April releases.
Anyone got any great ideas for other Southern-themed books to help me along my way?
