Hard Sun

So I just returned from a long, relaxing weekend in beautiful and sunny Scottsdale, Arizona where I hung by the pool, shopped a little, ate a lot, and saw lots of stuff like this:

And this:

And while I was there my awesome editor sent me the new cover for my May 2008 release, CRUEL SUMMER, and I absolutely LOVE it!! But since there may be a few minor tweaks I will wait for the final product before I post it here.

And the funny thing is, in the book, the main character, Colby, is faced with the prospect of moving to Arizona and she FREAKS! Whereas I really didn't want to leave because it's just so dang peaceful in the desert. . .

What about you-- what are some places you've visited that you were reluctant to leave?
