I'm pretty picky...

I'm pretty picky, especially when it comes to what I read.

Some people have to finish a book after they start it,
even if they don't like the book.
It's just for the principle of finishing what you start.  

Me, forget that principle.
I just quit reading.
(I don't want to waste my time.)

But today I have a book to recommend -
that I COULDN'T quit reading!!!!


Its setting is in a part of the world I love, the Texas Hill Country.
(I spent two summers as a camp counselor in Kerrville,
and two summers as a camp counselor in Leakey.
That was back during my college years.)

Anyway, the book has about everything: mystery, fun, interesting characters (folks you'd swear you know), a great setting, plus it's heart-warming and really focuses on what is important in life.

It makes me want to go back to the Hill Country and just drive around,
and then stop a while to take in the 'feel' of it.

You can order PAXON CHUTE easily on Amazon by clicking HERE.

You'll find it extremely well-written,
and you won't want to put it down.

Here's a picture of the author...
Did I tell you that I know him?!

Besides writing he has other talents...
 He's the only person I know personally that can play bagpipes.
(Unless I'm forgetting someone?)

Here he is with his beautiful family...
(They're beautiful inside and out, by the way.)

You won't be disappointed.


In closing,
here's a quote I like
(because it's true)...

"Finishing a good book is like leaving a good friend."
William Feather

What a lovely post, Nancy! Every other Friday Keith and I would go out to breakfast and edit his latest chapter. We would often get the giggles talking about characters and what they might say or do next. I'm glad you enjoyed them as much as we did! I'm so abnoxiously proud of Keith for what an amazing job he did on the book. Thanks so much for the support and encouragement :-)

Great comments, Keith and Stacey.
I especially like how you would edit the latest chapters - at breakfast!

I really think it is a marvelous book.... on so many levels.
