The sun had been up for hours, which was more than I could say for myself. I carried my first cup of coffee out onto the so-called "summer parlor." the covered porch facing the dunes, leaned my elbows on the railing, and looked out to sea.
Friday 56:
It seems to be a universal constant, no matter what the craft, that the little, fiddly stuff is the hardest to get right.
This week I'm spotlighting Carousel Sun by Sharon Lee. This is a recent audiobook copy of a book I also own in print and Kindle. I read it when it came out but this is the first time I'm listening to it. 

Here is the description from Amazon:
The long-awaited sequel to Carousel Tides, enchanting contemporary fantasy by Sharon Lee, award-winning co-creator of the popular Liaden Universe saga. When magic meets mundane, sparks fly: These are exciting times in Archers Beach, Maine! An unprecedented Early Season has united townies and carnies in an effort expand into a 12-month resort, recapturing the town's former glory.

Kate Archer, owner-operator of the vintage wooden carousel, is caught up in the excitement - and is quite possibly the cause of it. Because Kate leads a double life, as carny, and as Guardian of the land. Her recent return to the home she had forsaken has changed the town's luck - for the better - and energized the trenvay - Earth and water spirits who are as much citizens of the Beach as their mundane counterparts.

But the town's new energy isn't the only change afoot. Joe Nemeier, the local drug lord, whose previous magical consultant was vanquished by Kate, has acquired a new ally - and this one plays with fire.


  1. I haven't read any books from this series, but Carousel Sun sounds pretty interesting. I am wondering why there's a rooster on the book cover.

  2. Love that beginning!! Happy weekend!
