Connect Five Friday – a little late


It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday,  hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

I am late coming to this challenge as it is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I have been busy. Turkey dinner with all the trimmings on Saturday – but with just 3 of us. Nothing like the dinners pre covid. But I am thankful that we are all doing okay – even if we are separate.

With the holiday in mind, I decided that I would share 5 authors I am thankful for:

Susanna Kearsley. She is my favourite author, a Canadian, and an exceptional author. Most of her books are historical fiction or have a dual time-line. My favourite of her books – The Rose Garden

Anne Bishop. She is my favourite fantasy author, of my favourite series – The Others. This is the only series I have ever reread.

Louise Penny. Another Canadian, she has the wonderful Inspector Gamache series that takes place in the small Quebec town of Three Pines.


Kelly Bowen. I have just discovered this Canadian author who was born in the same city as I did (Winnipeg, Manitoba). I’m so enjoying her historical romance novels.

There are so many wonderful authors, that I am choosing the latest author I am enjoying:

Emilie Richards. I am reading the last novel of her Shenandoah series and loving it (Sister’s Choice).
