And the award goes to…

I was absolutely thrilled today when I stopped by Deanna Raybourn’s blog and discovered that she had won the 2008 RITA* for Best Novel with Strong Romantic Elements. As Read This! followers surely know, Deanna is much beloved in these parts, and her books are ever popular recommendations. {You haven’t read them yet? Well…Stop by and check out Silent in the Grave as soon as possible.}

Congrats, Ms. Raybourn!!

You can read more about her win – from the lady herself – here.

*The RITA awards are given out by the Romance Writers of America. Still, don’t let the “romance” in the award’s moniker put you off; Deanna Raybourn’s books are strong, intelligent historical mysteries with charming characters that keep you coming back for more. Like I said, highly recommended!
