Romance Writers Weekly ~ Favorite Books of 2022 ~ #LoveChatWrite



This week's Romance Writers Weekly question is: "Writers are readers, too! Who are your one-click authors? What was your favourite book of 2022?"

Um...how long have you got? 2022 was a pretty great year for books with a lot of my favorite authors beginning and/or ending series, and releasing stand-alone books and/or spin offs. 

Kelly Jamieson wrapped up the 2nd trilogy in her Bears Hockey series and released a stand-alone MMR, Royally Indecent. Jenny Schwartz wrapped up her Adventures of a Xeno-archaeologist series and gave us the first in a new spin off series with Any House in a Storm. Jennifer Bernard maybe, sort of wrapped up her Lost Harbor, Alaska series, but segued into a new kinda, sorta connected series, Lake Bittersweet.

Jordan L Hawk debuted a new series, (Outfoxing the Paranormal) with her story The Forgotten Dead. Jeffe Kennedy wrapped up Heirs of Magic with The Long Night of the Radiant Star. And Devon Monk has (maybe) ended her Ordinary Magic series, but hopefully there are more Souls of the Road books coming. The newest, Wayward Sky, released last month but I haven't read it yet.

Oh, and KJ Charles dropped a nice little Christmas present to wrap up the Year. Masters In This Hall is part of the Lilywhite Boys series, which in turn connects to both her Sins of the Cites AND her Society of Gentlemen series.

In case it isn't obvious by now, I LOVE interconnected series.

Well, I think that's enough to go on. As to my favorite...no. I don't play favorites. I'm far too indecisive. I will say that the most unexpected (in a good way) book I read last year by a new-to-me author was One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston. Set in New York City and partially during the time I lived there made it a very nice treat.

Next, hop on over to  Leslie Hachtel's page and find out what she's been reading. And be sure and check out her book, Murder Most Notorious

A beautiful homicide detective and a sexy cold case guy have to team up to find a vicious axe-wielding killer. Brutal murders have shocked the city and all the evidence points to a twin sister once thought dead. So many twists and turns in this action packed romantic thriller you might get dizzy. And so much passion

Christmas Angel

You’ve heard this story a hundred times before. Well. A dozen times, anyway. It’s a Christmas classic: Cranky guy dies without learning the true meaning of the season, gets turned into an angel and is given the job of saving someone else from suffering the same unhappy fate.
Usually it’s billed as a romance, or at least as feel-good, family fun. Which is ridiculous. Even Dickens, the man who invented cheesy Christmas stories, knew better than that. His Marley was miserable, as who wouldn’t be in his situation? Which also happens to be my situation.

Hi. My name is Jacob. I’m an angel. And this is my story.

Releases May 16, 2023 in the limited edition anthology Redemption: a Fallen Angels Paranormal Romance Collection available for pre-order now. https://books2read.com/b/br1JkE
