Hot Fiction Picks from Favorite Authors
Steamy Days, Steamy Reads

If you're a weather geek, you can check out the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration'sState of the Climate Report. Better yet, tough it out at the beach with a good read. Books can add steam of the welcomed variety...
Over twenty years, snapshots of an unlikely relationship on the same day -- July 15th -- of each year. Expect a movie; this one is ready-made for big screen treatment and is somewhat reminiscent of Same Time Next Year and Groundhog Day.
This latest off-beat novel from the very funny Hiaasen stars twenty-something singer Cheryl Bunterman (aka Cherry Pye) and recurring characters Chemo and Skink. Plenty of pop-culture humor to satisfy anyone who laughs at the celebrity gossip industry.
This mystery novel (after Day of the Dead) features former homicide detective Brandon Walker and his wife, novelist Diana Ladd. Murders, cold case and new, impact the TohonoO'odham Nation residents and their [Arizona] neighbors. The novel is dedicated to the late Tony Hillerman.
Fans of Tudor England historicals will surely appreciate Gregory's latest about Margaret Beaufort, grandmother of King Henry VIII, and key player in the War of the Roses. Second in The Cousins' War series (after the White Queen) from the author of The Other Boleyn Girl.
