Normally I tackle the week in review on Saturday morning.
It's one of my favorite things to do, so not much can divert me from it.
This week, one thing did.
I got an ARC of THE PROMISE by Robert Crais.
Now, I've known Bob Crais for a long time, and I am a DEVOTED fan of Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. I've read all of the early Elvis Cole novels more than once.
In recent years though, I've been a bit of a slacker fan. I'd discovered other writers that I needed to know to stay current, and I don't have as much reading time as I wish I did for authors I love as a fan.
But, when Jon Jordan extolled the THE PROMISE on Twitter, I tweeted back with a sad face that I didn't have a copy of the book. And Jon, being a VERY nice friend, sent me his ARC when he was done.
And that, dear reader, is why the Week in Review is going to be late.
THE PROMISE is like reconnecting with a beloved old friend. Like going home for Christmas after years away. Like rediscovering a favorite restaurant that has only gotten better in the years you've been off sampling fusion cuisine.
I may have been a slacker fan in years gone by, but never again. Robert Crais is the cat's pajamas. Elvis' cat's pajamas in fact.
Have you rediscovered an old favorite after a time away?
