Which Book is Your Favorite? by Marilyn Meredith

When I have my book on display, readers often ask me this question as a way to decide which of my books they should purchase.

That question is much like asking a mother which of her children is her favorte.

Frankly, I don't have a favorite. For the next few days I'll write about some of the books in the Deputy Tempe Crabtree series, and what I like about each one.

Today, I'll write about Bears With Us.

First, I really love this cover!

Right now, we're in the middle of a drought here in the foothills of the Sierra, which means we've had several fires around us--and the wildlife has come down to find water and food. And among this wildlife, of course are bears.

Neighbors have reported bear scat on their patios. One scared woman posted that she had a mama bear and two cubs roaming around her house and was afraid to come out. Trash cans have been overturned. Yes, the bears are with us again.

Some of that was going on while I was writing Bears With Us, but the real impetus came from my grandson who at the time was an Aspen CO policeman and spent a great deal of time chasing bears out of people's homes.

I also had just learned about an interesting form of Alzheimer's, Lewy Body Dementia.

I managed to come up with a plot using both topics--and had a lot of fun doing it.

So, if you haven't read, Bears With Us yet, hop on over to Amazon or Barnes and Noble to get a copy--available in print or as an e-book.

And for all the different formats, head on over to the publisher's site:

I have read "Bear Are With Us" and can tell you it is a great book. The smoke from the fires in the Pacific Northwest is in our Colorado mountain town right now, Marilyn. We have bears crossing our deck nightly now, as they prepare for hibernation...or so the DOW says. They don't hibernate until Thanksgiving, so it seems early to me. Anyway, love your book.

I also think that would be a hard question to answer, "Which of my books should I buy?" I only have one, so it's easy for me as there's only one answer possible. But if I had a number of books, I don't know that I could suggest one over the other. My second book (a work-in-progress) is one I sometimes love more than the first and then sometimes not. They are two separate entities and both so close to my heart, but for different reasons. Yeah, this is an interesting position to be in. I'm not going to be there for some time, so not sure of my response. I enjoyed this post.
Bears have become a real problem here in the CA foothill, fires and the drought are bringing them into town. One at a neigbor's dog and wounded the other one. Early this a.m. one tried to get in my granddaughter's gate. Sheriff chased him off. He was big and fat.

And Linda, I like whatever book I'm working on at the time, the best--but still have other favorites.
