Purple Knot

Knot to be missed!

If you can only afford one summer read,
make it Purple Knot by debut author, Raquel Byrnes.
Okay, so I’m only 25% of the way done.
But I can tell already this is going to be one of my favorite reads
by a debut author. You know what I mean.
You can just tell…
And even though I’m busy, right? I can’t put it down.
I’m reading for work. In fact, I’m in the middle of one
I have to get done, but I knew Purple Knot was
coming out today and I just wanted to take a break in order to
read “a few pages.”
Yeah, right. Well, the best laid plans and all that jazz.
So here I am, putting down a book that has grabbed
me by the cheeks and is slapping then both so hard
my mouth is twisted into a frown. Get the picture?
But I knew this book was coming out and because I love
I couldn’t resist moseying over to Amazon and
popping the puppy on my Kindle.
Okay, Ms. Byrnes, the ending had better do justice to the beginning, because when I finish, I’m doing a full review, right here, right now, right to the end!
Suspenseful reading all…


  1. Thank you, Linda. So glad Reyna and her crazy world caught you up. See if you can spot my Hitchcock-like cameo in the story....:)

  2. Great teaser, Linda! I'm anxious to read Raquel's book too. Guess I'd better get on it, huh?

    Suspense and romance--can't wait!

  3. You won't be sorry, Cheryl. I'm slow reading new authors, but this is really good and I'm chomping at that "imaginary horse" bit to read more of it.

  4. Ahhh! So MANY great books to read! My kindle is bursting and my husband is grumbling from all the Amazon charges. Can't wait to read this one!

  5. Thank you, Cheryl!

    Karla - I hear you. My husband is the same with Kindle and iTunes. :)
    Edge of Your Seat Romance

  6. What a beautiful cover and intriguing title! I def. want to know what you think, Linda. :-)
