July books

I picked up a small boook, Walk There!, by Portland Metro that gives 50 walking trails in and around the Portland/Vancouver area. From Power Walks to Lunchtime Strolls, there's a trail for everyone around their region of the city. Some have different starting and stopping points so if you arrived there by car, you get to walk it again - in reverse! :)

2 new authors and a long silent author with a new series make up half the books I read in July.
Craig Johnson has 3 books in his Walt Longmire series about a small town sheriff in Wyoming. An enjoyable series that I'll continue if I run across another one.
Cold Dish, Death Without Company, Kindness Goes Unpunished
Kris Neri has 2 books in her Tracy Eaton series about a mystery writes who thinks she could be a detective. These were fine and funny though I probably won't read any more.
Revenge of the Gypsy Queen, Dem Bones' Revenge
Susan Dunlap starts a new series about stuntwoman Darcy Lott. Enjoyed her other 4 series close to a decade ago and this one's no different. Definitely looking for the next one to read.
A Single Eye

Science Fiction/Fantasy
Tanya Huff has 2 new books in her Valor series. Well, one actually but I just recently found out about them and haven't gotten to the newest one 'til this month. (My library books wouldn't renew so I read them first) A good book
The Heart of Valor
David Weber & Steve White - The Shiva Option I thought was going to be the last book in their Starfire Universe series but it seems Steve White has teamed up with Shirley Meier for a fifth one (that I don't have yet! *It's in the mail* :)
Two stand alone novels by David Weber were also very good. (even the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th time around!)
The Apocalypse Troll, In Fury Born
Alex Archer - Gabriel's Horn is the latest Rogue Angel and another keeper!

Historical Fiction
Sally Gunning - Bound is the 2nd historical novel she's written about in the Cape Cod area leading up to the American Revolution. It's a very interesting book and I'm actually looking forward to another one!

Thanks for adding more books for me to read. I'm particularly interested in mysteries but the Sally Gunning book sounds fascinating too.

You're welcome. If you can find them, Sally has a mystery series she wrote in the 90s featuring an odd job man, Peter Bartholomew, that I enjoyed very much.
The titles, in order, are: Hot Water, Under Water, Ice Water, Troubled Water, Rough Water, Still Water, Deep Water, Muddy Water, Dirty Water, Fire Water
