Friday Finds!

I've enjoyed everyone else's Friday Finds for a while now, and darn it...its time to join this meme!

Thanks to MizB for hosting this fun Friday meme!

I actually read about my find a few weeks ago, but I'm still super excited to read it. My favorite, Dean Koontz has a new book coming out in November, Breathless. I can't wait to get my paws on it!

From Amazon:
Grady Adams lives a simple, solitary life deep in the Colorado mountains. Here the thirty-five-year-old carpenter works out of a converted barn, crafting exquisite one-of-a-kind furniture. There’s little about this strong yet gentle man to suggest the experiences that have alienated him from the contemporary world. But that is about to change.

One day, while hiking, Grady spots a pair of stunningly beautiful furred animals unlike anything he’s ever seen. They flee the instant they detect his presence, but the mystery of that brief encounter remains. In the days ahead, Grady will approach the creatures again, gaining their trust but coming no closer to solving their mystery. For this he enlists the help of an old friend, veterinarian Camellia “Cammy” Rivers, who, in turn, is stunned—and enchanted—by Grady’s new “pets.” But while Grady and Cammy carefully observe these enigmatic animals for clues to their origin, they, too, are being watched.

Soon Grady’s home and hundreds of square miles of surrounding wilderness will be placed under quarantine by Homeland Security. And Grady, Cammy, and the two creatures they’ve come to feel they must protect at all costs find themselves virtual prisoners—and the unwilling focus of an army of biologists, naturalists, and research scientists. But it’s a stunning event no one could have foreseen that convinces Grady and Cammy to do the unthinkable: to escape with the two creatures on a riveting race for freedom

Hi Kelly,

Very nice blog. I'm following, and I put it on my blog as one I'm following. I'm very impressed with the format.

Someone recommended Dean Koonz's short stories to me recently.

I love Koontz! It was because of his books I started our book club 8 years ago (the man just couldn't write fast enough and I needed to explore new authors! LOL)

Of course now - I couldn't choose a fav. author if I tried... way too much variety in my reading!

However - I must be under a rock because I did not know about this book. I am getting it!
