On my reading list...

So, I have a rather extensive reading list, but these are a few I most want to read...

Seeds of Summer (Seasons of Tallgrass #2) by Deborah Vogts
I read the first one in this series (Snow Melts In Spring) a while back after winning it from an online contest. And I'll say simply...I LOVED it. I would really, REALLY love to read this one!
ON BACK COVER: When opposites attract, sparks fly--like an electrical malfunction. That's what happens when former rodeo queen Natalie Adams meets the new pastor in Diamond Falls. A heart-warming contemporary romance set in the Flint Hills of Kansas where a former rodeo queen abandons her dreams in order to care for her deceased father’s ranch and her two half-siblings, only to realize with the help of a young new pastor that God can turn even the most dire circumstances into seeds of hope. Spanning the Seasons of the Tallgrass, each story in this series reveals the struggle of the people who live there and the dreams they have for the land until they come full-circle in a never-ending cycle, just as man comes full-circle in his understanding of God.

I don't normally read historical fiction, but this doesn't look like typical historical. Set in Hollywood in the 1940s, it has romance and suspense. I'm actually looking forward to reading something from this era, the 40s and 50s have always fascinated me!
ON BACK COVER: When attorney Audra Schaeffer's sister disappears, Audra flies to Hollywood to find her but instead must identify her body. Determined to bring the killer to justice, Audra takes a job with the second Hollywood Victory Caravan. Together with Robert Garfield and other stars, she crisscrosses the southern United States in a campaign to sell war bonds. When two other women are found dead on the train, Audra knows the deaths are tied to that of her sister. Could the killer be the man with whom she's falling in love?
P.S there's a contest going on to win this book along with a bunch of other goodies here. Hurry, it ends tomorrow!
 
The Rivers Run Dry by Sibella Giorello
I've heard a lot of good things about this book (and this author) and have been wanting to read it for a while. It also has one of the most captivating covers I've ever seen. That alone makes me want to peek inside!
ON BACK COVER: When Raleigh Harmon, geologist and special agent for the FBI, is suddenly transferred from the Richmond field office to Seattle, she finds herself in strange territory. The Pacific Northwest has a whole different pace than the South does, her new boss seems determined to prove she can't handle the work, and she's desperately trying to keep her mother's sanity from crumbling altogether. But a missing hiker, a ransom note, an underground card game, and a "friend" with deadly intentions all ensure that there's no time for an easy transition. Raleigh will need all her skills and a little help—to keep the missing girl and herself alive.



The Gabon Virus: A Novel (Tsi: Time Scene Investigators) by Paul McCusker & Dr. Walt Larimore
I'll let this book explain itself, and you'll understand why I want to read it...
ON BACK COVER:
An ancient disease, a modern pandemic, and the one person who offers hope for a cure has been dead for 350 years
In 1666, a horrible disease took the lives of almost every person in Eyam (pronounced Eem), England. Helping the sick and the dying was the mysterious and ghostlike Blue Monk, whose strange appearance terrified even those who were comforted by him.
More than three centuries later the disease has returned, more virulent than before. Every day more people are infected; every hour more die.
The lives of millions rest in the hands of a bio-team -- the Time Scene Investigators -- that studies history to find cures for modern diseases. But the newest member of the team, Dr. Mark Carlson, has suffered a heartbreaking loss.
With every tick of the clock the world approaches a global pandemic. A race against time becomes a race across continents -- to find a frightened boy who is carrying and spreading the disease wherever he goes, to thwart the machinations of corporate greed and fanatical sabotage, and to find the connection between a great tragedy of the past and a potential catastrophe of the present. Our present.
This book may become tomorrow's headline.

When The Nile Runs Red by DiAnn Mills
A novel with both action and inspiration set in the war torn area of Sudan, Africa. I have never read anything by DiAnn Mills yet, but I would like to. I have a few from her on my reading list.
ON BACK COVER: Paul Farid was once a member of the royal family who openly persecuted any Sudanese who failed to practice Islam. Now he's a Christian who puts his life on the line to aid the persecuted Sudanese. His wife, Larson, is a doctor committed to giving her life for peace.Colonel Ben Alier has fought for twenty-one years against the government's mandates to control the oil, religion, slavery, and politics of Sudan. He neither trusts nor rests any hope in the newly formed government.Ben's health deteriorates while Larson finds out she is going to have a baby. Their worlds collide, and as the relational tensions escalate so does the physical danger.
