Coming Attractions

 



Who's ready for November? I'm reveling in the cool, crisp mornings, beautiful fall colors, college football and, of course, great books. The trees in my neighborhood are gorgeous!

 


December holidays are just around the corner and I have lots of stories to put you in a festive mood. Here's what's on the schedule for November.




Kicking off the month on Tuesday, November 2 will be my review of Dinner on Primrose Hill by Jodi Thomas. This heartwarming western contemporary is the third book in Thomas's heartwarming Honey Creek series.






Stop by Wednesday, November 3 for my review of Holiday Ever After by Jill Shalvis. This anthology features three previously published holiday novellas by Shalvis: One Snowy Night, Holiday Wishes, and Mistletoe in Paradise. 






Join me on Thursday, November 4 for a review of A Wanton for All Seasons. This historical romance is the third book in Christi Caldwell's emotional Wantons of Waverton series. 





Friday, November 5 brings a review of a new historical romance by Amalie HowardRules for Heiresses. This standalone is garnering rave reviews.






Kat Martin joins us on Monday, November 8 with a guest post. Martin's novel, The Last Goodnight launches her newest romantic suspense series. Click here to read my review. 






I'll be sharing my thoughts about Never Fall For Your Fiancée by Virginia Heath when the book's blog tour stops at the Dish on Tuesday, November 9.






Wednesday, November 10 brings my review of An Heiress's Guide to Deception and Desire by Manda Collins. I loved book one in this series and have been eagerly anticipating the follow-up. 


 




Nancy will be here Friday, November 12 with her review of Nalini Singh's eagerly anticipated novel: Archangel's Light






If you love the dust bunnies of Jayne Castle's (a/k/a Jayne Ann Krentz) future world (and who doesn't?), stop by Tuesday, November 16 for my review of Guild Boss, the newest novel in Castle's popular Harmony series. 




Filled with humor, heart, matchmaking grannies, and adorable dogs, the annual Christmas books in Roxanne St. Claire's Dogfather and Dogmother series are always on my must-buy list. Visit me Wednesday, November 17 for my review of this year's story: Peppermint Bark





If you enjoy spice in your holidays, stop by Friday, November 19 for my review of The Babe from Toyland by Daphne Chase. This steamy contemporary romance is sure to heat up your holidays. 





The Christmas Wedding Guest by Susan Mallery is destined to be an annual holiday re-read for me. I adored this women's fiction (with strong romantic elements) story about two sisters, a town that goes all out for the holidays, and unexpected love. Check out my review on Monday, November 22





Keep Me Warm at Christmas by Brenda Novak is another engaging, heart-tugging tale in her Silver Springs contemporary romance series. Stop by on Tuesday, November 23 for my review.





A novel titled The Christmas Bookshop and set in Edinburgh is sure to find its way into my shopping cart. Find out why on Wednesday, November 24 when I review this new holiday novel by Jenny Colgan




On Friday, November 26, we're "traveling" to Alaska with Finding Paradise, the second book in Barbara Dunlop's Paradise, Alaska contemporary romance series. Take a break from your Black Friday shopping to stop in and read my review.





I've already read an advance copy of After Dark with the Duke by Julie Anne Long twice and have no doubt I'll revisit it many times again in the coming weeks, months, and years. It's one of my favorite books of 2021 and, in my opinion, one of the best Long has ever written. Check out my review on Monday, November 29.





Closing out the month on Tuesday, November 30 will be a review of Once Upon a Cabin by Patience Griffin. I'm looking forward to this second book in Griffin's heart-tugging Sweet Home, Alaska contemporary romance series. 




That's what I have planned for November here at The Romance Dish. What's on your schedule this month? Must-read books? Thanksgiving plans? Travel?

  2. What a beautiful selection of books. November will be lovely. I cannot believe that I will travel for the first time in 5 years with my family on vacation. It seems like a dream.

  5. I don't think I'm ready for it to be November - another year flying by. I know I'll eventually be reading at least half of these books.

  6. WOW You have a wonderful list of books for the month. I have read only one of those books. And looking at the list, it is evident, I need a bunch of the other ones.

    You have picked some of my favorite authors....and that means I need books. (in reality I don't need more books....but I want more books.)

    Thanks for the terrific list and I look forward to all the reviews.

    Hope everyone is well and safe and happy.

  10. Lots of books in this list that I want to read. November has 3 family birthdays - my husband's, my nephew's and mine plus my best friend and then of course Thanksgiving, although I wouldn't mind holding on to the good weather a little bit longer lol.

  12. Jayne Castle's book is on order from my library! Jodi Thomas, Jill Shalvis, Susan Mallery are just a few of the ones I'll be putting on the wish list. No Thanksgiving plans, I will be recovering from hip replacement surgery. Thanks for sharing these books.

  13. Looking forward to so many of these! The new Manda Collins, Julie Anne Long, and Nalini Singh are at the top of my TBR list. I’m also really looking forward to the latest in Sherry Thomas’s Lady Sherlock series, “Miss Moriarty, I Presume?”

  15. We will finish a 2 1/2 week trip to the Northeast in our RV tomorrow. We had a funeral in NH to attend and made the swing through NY to visit my family and friends, then down to NH, Mass., Virginia, and now to NC to visit family. It has been almost 3 years since we have seen them. We had constant problem with the RV and our schedule ended up being on a day to day basis, since we didn't know what would happen next. In spite of that, it was a nice trip and we met some nice people.

    Thanksgiving is still up in the air. Our son and daughter and their spouses that live near us will not get vaccinated, so we are planning no Thanksgiving dinner get together. We will spend our Christmas with our other daughter in NC and they are all vaccinated. So it will likely be a quiet day watching the parade and watching football or reading. I have really missed the family get togethers and doing all the cooking. The rest of the month will be spent doing some Red Cross and veterans' activities and working on going through things to try and downsize a bit.

    1. Sorry about the RV troubles but it sounds like you had a good time in spite of that.

      Downsizing seems to be a constant effort for me. Much too easy for things to creep back in! LOL!

  16. I am away from home and with family this month. Not a lot of reading happening, but lots of chatting!

    1. Chatting is good! I hope you enjoy your visit with your family.

  17. Another great group of authors and titles for November! We're having a mix of overcast days and sunshine here in the mountains of VA--you grab the sunshine when you can! Some of the trees are blazing red or gold and some are still green. We had our annual Fall Festival and it was good. I did my "spooky reading" in October, and now I'm ready for all the holiday reads that come my way!

    1. We're just edging past our peak colors here in NC. It's been beautiful this year.

  18. I love Jenny Colgan's books. I don't think we're having a Thanksgiving gathering yet. The virus situation is still there. It will just be a small one with one son and his family. November is my birthday month. :) Another year, still good health. My daughter is coming next week to celebrate my birthday. We're ordering in; most likely Thai food. I'm hoping someone brings me carrot cake. It's my favorite. I'm loving the color changes this season. bluedawn95864 at gmail dot com

    2. Thank you! My parents are joining us as well. It's been two years since they've come to my house.

  19. It is going to be a busy month. We are adopting a puppy in the middle of the month but before that I've got to seriously puppy proof the house and yard as much as possible. It's been 16 years since we've had a puppy in the house.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh, what fun! I love puppies but, yes, puppy proofing the house is absolutely necessary. What kind are you getting?

  21. Not much going on here, will spend holidays with my children and grandkids. Thanks for showing all these great books.
