Books to read . . . in addition to mine of course.

Okay, it's been a while since I've recommended a few books. So I have three more to add to the list.
The first is actually a series of four books. I'm on the fourth, but I love them all.

M. Louisa Locke is the author. I've talked about her books before, but here they are.

Locke creates a delightful atmosphere in Victorian San Francisco. She offers mystery, intrigue, with a touch of romance and her stories are clean. I highly encourage you to check out her books.

Next up is a mystery novella by Debra Erfurt.

It Takes a Sleuth is a fantastic mystery to read in an afternoon (during your responsibility vacation.) that will have you turning pages all the way to the end.

Maxine Larabee (Max) owner of Larabee Investigations, needs a big case to solve and she needs it now. Taylor Hodges, field producer of Hollywood’s hottest reality show, Marry Me, hires Max after someone tries to kill her while scouting next season’s filming location in Arizona. Maxine hopes solving the celebrity’s case might end her company’s financial struggle, and at the same time prove to her lead investigator, Jace Atmore, she has what it takes to be a good detective. 

But she has a bigger problem than just trying to prove her investigative abilities to a man with whom she’s attracted and probably falling for. The strongest lead in Taylor’s case trails straight to an ex-contestant of Marry Me, Lemon Beauchamp, a woman who’s engaged to His Royal Highness Prince Dante of Monterra. Getting to question her might be more difficult than keeping Taylor alive, or getting Jace’s respect.

And lastly, a wonderful Christian romance by Carol Moncado.

Good Enough for a Princess is a delightful romance that seems like your typical love story, but there are twists and turns that surprised even me. 

Crown Princess Adeline of Montevaro has her life planned out for her: get her Master's in international relations, marry nobility, produce an heir, inherit the throne. There's no room for romance with the single father she meets when their cars collide on an icy winter night. Parliament - and her father - would never approve. 

Charlie Brewer grew up without roots. The son of an archaeologist father and anthropologist mother, he either traveled along or lived with his aunt and uncle in the States. He's determined to give his daughter the stability he never had. He also wants to give her a mom, but the beautiful European he's falling for refuses to move to Serenity Landing, Missouri permanently. 

He won't move. She can't stay. What will happen when they try to forget each other by dating someone "acceptable"? They find themselves drawn together by one of the girls in the after school program Addie supports - a girl who happens to be Charlie's daughter. How will Charlie, and his daughter, feel when they find out the woman they've both fallen for is a... princess? 

A trip halfway around the world shows Charlie and Addie how much they long to be together - and how impossible it is. Is there any way he can prove he is Good Enough for a Princess?
