Vampires, Oh My!

I have not read very many vampire books but two authors that I have really enjoyed are Lynsay Sands and Nina Bangs.

 Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series is an all time favorite of mine; two titles are Single White Vampire, Tall Dark and Hungry. The books are romantic comedies set in contemporary times.


Hurricane Preparedness Program

Join us on September 18th at 2:00pm, when the Office of Emergency Management will give a presentation that covers hurricane safety procedures.  In this presentation, you will learn basic key steps to ensure you and your family's safety in case of hurricane emergencies. There will also be time for question and answers after the presentation.  Houston is a major hub for hurricane happenings; do not get caught unprepared!


I’m Stuck On The Boscastles Family

This week I’m stuck on Jillian Hunter’s books about the infamous Boscastle family. I’m on my third one, The Devilish Pleasures of a Duke. This weekend I read, Wicked as Sin, and The Seduction of an English Scoundrel. I couldn’t put them down. I love her writing. It is funny and witty and steamy!

Taiwan – Plugging Into The World


Bear Creek is proud to host this fascinating exhibit that introduces, through images, digital life in Taiwan and their goal of becoming a “knowledge-based economy.” Come and take a look at Taiwan, building an e-society! Now through the end of September.

What Can I Say About Janet Chapman’s Books Except “Yum!”

She is one of my favorite authors. As soon as I finish one of her books I can’t wait until the next comes out.  She never fails to deliver; her story lines are so engaging that I just can’t put them down. Moonlight Warrior, is the first book in the new Midnight Bay Series. This story is funny, exciting and drew me right in. My only complaint is that it ended far too soon. If you like this book you should definitely check out her other series especially the Highlander Series, which sizzles!

Congratulation to Debbie Hall -- Bear Creek’s ReaderNation Winner!

Debbie is a former teacher. When she was signing up her children for SRP, her kids noticed the ReaderNation program and encouraged her to sign up, too! She did not think she had a chance to win anything and was very surprised to find out she was the Bear Creek Grand Prize Winner. She says she will definitely sign up again next year.

The Creed Brothers Come Home

I love Linda Lael Miller’s books! Her latest series, Montana Creeds, is about three estranged brothers who come home to find family and love. Once I started reading them I couldn’t put them down. If you want to know about her newest books check out her website
