Kate (Feathered Turtle Press) I'm more into SFF, but Cherry's base in the author's own experiences has caught my attention. I'm gonna check it out.

cupofnicole Of course I judge books by their covers... Cherry looks beautiful but also really interesting as the author wrote it in prison. Those books always seem to have a good amount of edge and tend to be more interesting to me. I'm excited!

Barbara Senteney Feared by Lisa Scottoline looks good, I read After Anna by her and thought it was really good
