Oh My God, if you thought “IN OVER HER HEAD” was a really good read WAIT until you read “WILD BLUE UNDER” I was lucky enough to see Judi at the RWA Nationals this year and she gave me an advanced copy to read on my way home. Well, I didn’t get the chance then to read it, BUT having spent the last few weeks on vacation I finally had time to enjoy the book, and enjoy it I did!

I fell in love with Rod and Valerie! The story is wonderfully told, fun to read and very creative. It was delightfully entertaining and a sweet romantic read. WILD BLUE UNDER will touch the heart.

So girls… this is a book you’re going to want to win! And next week will be a contest - so put on your running shoes, sharpen your pencils and tie back your hair…get ready to compete in another one of my contest! Tell everyone you know Judi’s back and WILD BLUE UNDER IS UP FOR GRABS!

Houston A.W. Knight said...

Besides - they're SEXY!!!!


Houston A.W. Knight said...


Oh, I'm telling you - This is a very good story and I have enjoyed the read! I can't wait for the next book!


Houston A.W. Knight said...


I have so much enjoyed this book! You're an awesome and very creative writer...I'm hooked for sure.

Hawk, you're absolutely dead on with this! It does touch the heart.

I've read the ARC too, and I loved it. In Over Her Head was good, but this one is even better. Judi's growth as an author is amazing. I liked this one because it was deeper and dealt with Mer polictical issues and assigations attempts and it was funny as hell. I loved Val and Rod. Wait until you guys meet Livingston--he's a hoot. Of all of Judi's non human characters, he is by far, my favorite!

I hope vacation was enjoyable, Hawk. Hugs to you, my friend!

OMG, you hit the nail on the head about this book...and Yes, I loved it for nearly the same reasons you did! I LOVE LOVE ROD!

And I agree - if they thought the first book was great - WAIT! The second one is even better!!!


Houston A.W. Knight said...


LOL - This is an easy contest...I promise.

I'll pick the winner!


Houston A.W. Knight said...

Danni said...

Houston A.W. Knight said...


Oh Godness darlin' I could NEVER forget about you...Normally I don't miss visiting your site but finding time for visit while I've been on vacation has been Vegas there's always a lot to do and no time to do it! But I'm trying...once I get home I will be better at visiting all you girls!

I missed you all and seeing what is going on on your blogs!


Liza said...

Judi has some really awesome covers! Adding her next book to my TBR list. Hope you are still having a wonderful vacation with your sister. See you for the contest on Sunday.

Vicki said...

Yay, I'm so glad the book is out. It's great too!!

I want to play in the contest, but just can't be counted to possibly win since I recieved a copy at Nationals. But your contest are always so much fun. :)

Judi Fennell said...

morning, all. Yes, it's morning here on the east coast - barely. I'm heading up to bed, but just wanted to say thanks again, Hawk, for such a wonderful review. Sia, you, too! I'm honestly blushing with all this praise. To think, my "little talking fish story" has gotten this kind of reaction. :)

Makes it all worthwhile.

FWIW, I just finished the first genie book. It's in the hands of some beta readers for feedback, so we'll see if it measures up.

Thanks! Can't wait to hear about the vacation!
