Hey All,

This is so exciting. I've just learned that Library Journal has chosen The Killing Storm as one of its best books of 2010. The list was just released, and my novel, the third in the Sarah Armstrong series is one of only five mysteries. I can't tell you how honored I am. Here's the blurb about the book:

Casey, Kathryn. The Killing Storm. Minotaur: St. Martin's. ISBN 9780312379520. $25.99. As Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong investigates the ritualistic killings of prize cattle, a four-year-old boy is kidnapped, and a hurricane heads straight for Houston. Riveting suspense and nifty plot twists in an outstanding series. (LJ 10/1/10)

Thank you to everyone at Library Journal, and thank you to all of you who are reading the book and recommending it to others. As the holiday season begins with Thanksgiving, I have much to be grateful for. High on the list are all of you who read my books. I love writing, but I couldn't do what I do without your support. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by family and friends!

    Congatulations, Kathryn! Came out a little too late to say that on my blog didn't it? I could have said I was offering one of the best books of 2010 in then contest!

    Love that Sarah Armstrong, and I hope the book does well for you!

    Hi, just found your book over here in Germany, love it and can't wait for more. Blut Sühne-reads like Cody McFadyen, I just love it and glad I found another fictional character to keep reading about. Can't wait for your other Armstrong books.
