It's April! Wow, how did that happen? It's another busy month here at The Romance Dish and an even busier month for me offline. Hence, the five-day delay in posting April's Coming Attractions. Things in the PJ household are a bit topsy-turvy at the moment. I've been in my condo nine years now. That seems to be the point where I start opening myself to new adventures and - yep - here we go again. In the past three weeks I've decided to move closer to family, signed a sales contract on my condo, traveled to Florida for two weeks to scope things out, and am now back in North Carolina, busy packing and preparing for a closing and a move back to Florida the beginning of May. You know those hamsters running run non-stop on their wheels? That's going to be me for the month of April. And most likely half of May. So you may not see me commenting as much as I typically do. Don't worry. I'm still here working on reviews and other posts for you but the rest of the time my head will probably be in boxes, drawers, and cabinets. I'm guessing this will be my last move. Of course, I said that nine years ago so who knows? LOL! Anyway, that's enough about me. Here's what's on the Dish schedule for the month of April.
The month launched with a review of A Moment of Faith by Martin Svaneborg on Friday, April 1. Read PJ's review here.
Tuesday, April 5 brought a review of A Family Affair, a new standalone women's fiction novel by Robyn Carr. Read PJ's review here.

Lots of good books this month!! Loved Janna MacGregor & Robyn Carr's book. Just started RaeAnn Thayne's. I also pre-ordered the Sunflower Season anthology. Looking forward to your reviews on these.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to going out without needing a sweater! I'm looking forward to better news in the world - I find myself reading more for distraction. Always enjoy Robyn Carr's stories - they do hold my attention.ReplyDelete
Our 53rd Anniversary is tomorrow and on Fri we are going to dinner and a show with friends. Also looking forward to wearing sandals soon and no heavy coats and of course any new contemp books by my favorite authors.ReplyDelete

So many of the above and a few more. Mulberry Hollow by Denise Hunter and That Cowboy of Mine by Donna Grant.ReplyDelete
What a great line up! I’m looking forward to the weather hopefully getting warm enough for me to read outside, or at least open my windows to freshen up a bit! Reading-wise, I’m looking forward to The Romantic Agenda by Claire Kann and The Wedding Crasher by Mia Sosa.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to enjoy the weather before it really gets hot.ReplyDelete
Rules for Engaging the Earl.ReplyDelete
Best wishes for your move!
I am looking forward to sitting on my porch reading. And just getting outside to do anything.ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to so many books on this list especially Jeaniene Frosts mew one and also the book for Ukraine called Nightingale
I'm looking forward to all the flowers blooming. Spring celebrates "new" and start over. Love sitting on the deck with my morning coffee. Welcome to Florida.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm kind of excited to be moving back.Delete
Good luck with your move PJ! Do you have anyone coming to help you pack? Good luck keeping up with your reading while all of that is going on! What part of Florida are you heading to?ReplyDelete
Thanks, Susan! I do have packing help (yay!). It's bittersweet leaving our beautiful area and all my friends here but I am excited about the move. I'm going to East Central Florida.Delete
You better get up to Tenders a few more times before you go!!💜Delete
Good luck on the big move! You don't realize how much stuff you have until you have to start packing it up. The last time I moved I felt like my closets were like bottomless pits. What part of Florida are you moving to?ReplyDelete
We are looking forward to celebrating my dad's 97th birthday this month. We are also getting prepared to travel overseas again after a 2 year delay. The first of May we are headed to Spain and Portugal.
I hope you have a fabulous trip! I'm so looking forward to traveling again.Delete
Happy Birthday to your dad! That's quite the milestone.
I'm moving to East Central Florida. I lived in Florida for 24 years but I was on the Southwest coast, then in Jacksonville. My brother and sister-in-law have lived in the area where I'm moving for years so I'm familiar with it but as a visitor.
April is warm and lovely, perfect for walks. I look forward to planting and flowers.ReplyDelete
Best wishes on your move. I love the Spring since the days are longer and that is so pleasant.ReplyDelete
My one daughter was born near the end of April along with her husband and the other at the beginning of May so always a happy time in celebrating. As always, lots of good books coming our way. Best of luck in your move!!ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to hopefully more seasonably appropriate temps and less violent thunderstorms.ReplyDelete
I admire your courage P J. It takes bravery to pick up and move - again. Thanks for the introductions to all the wonderful new books upcoming in April. I hope you are correct... I hope We Get Rain here in Austin. We need it Badly.ReplyDelete
Have already purchased the Sunflower Season anthology. I look forward to reading it. And shoot fire, there are quite a few books this month which are by authors I love.
Thanks for this post. Hope everyone is happy today.

I'm actually wishing for rain this month here in Northern California. We're in severe drought. On a positive note, I'm always looking for new books to read. Moving is hard. I wish the best for you.ReplyDelete

Good luck to you, PJ! Take comfort in knowing that Anne Gracie is going through the same thing on the other side of the world. And I'm looking forward to putting away my warm winter coat for more than a few days at a time!ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to all the new books coming out and to warmer weather.ReplyDelete
I’m looking forward to babysitting my 8 month old grandson. He’s creeping everywhere, next up crawling as well as walking and saying some words.ReplyDelete
I enjoy several of the authors you mentioned Robyn Carr, RaeAnne Thane, Lorraine Heath, Sheila Roberts, Janna MacGregor and Michele Major. I like to try new authors too Diana Quincy and Hope Holloway.
Oh my goodness PJ!! Good luck with everything that comes with moving!ReplyDelete
We're still working on training our puppy and taking him lots of places so a summer spent in the shadows of the Tetons won't be too strange. I am hoping that the contractors will be able to start work on our bathroom remodel. I'm tired of looking at the taped up holes in the wall caused by the plumbers - and too cheap to fix a wall that is coming down.
Late again to post. Another great line-up. Several books by favorite authos on tap for this month. I look forward to reading some of them.ReplyDelete
