Is it even a party if you don't have themed cookies?!?
Huge thanks to everyone that came out to celebrate with us last weekend! We had an amazing time and I can't wait to hear what you think of Guns and Smoke!
If you love it, and I know you will, you'll want to save the date for Bookstore Romance Day on August 21st. We've got a few fun plans shaping up, including a Guns and Smoke book club meeting with the authors!
Have you been curious about the wanted poster you've seen up around the shop? Well, I'm glad you asked because I am thrilled to talk about the new dystopian thriller by local authors Lauren Sevier and A. Smith!
“I didn’t particularly like the idea of killing the handsome, blue-eyed stranger, but he wouldn’t be the first.” And with that opening line, Guns and Smoke launches a nonstop ride that brings the wild west into a dystopian future. Bonnie and Jesse have found themselves thrown together in this harsh, fallen world. As they fight their way across the desert, each navigating their own traumatic past while striving to maintain the hopeful innocence of Jesse's younger brother, these two form a deep bond. But how does one build a life in a world that seems to hold no future?
Sevier and Smith have balanced a dark world with a bright romance. This fresh look at the western genre that grapples with questions of redemption, trauma, and the many wounds of life that love both can and cannot heal. Relationships between the characters grow authentically and while things may be bleak, we can trust these authors with our hearts.
I hope you’ll get a chance to read Guns and Smoke! Join us this Saturday at 6:30 at Le Chien Brewing Co. as we celebrate the launch of this great read!
