I have just given up on a book and I dont do that very often. It was The Cedar Cage by Robert Greenwood. I just could NOT get in to it.

I have started on an Angela Marsons book. So far so good.

Very happy as have three brand new, sweet smelling books.

Jane Harper - Force of Nature. Follow up to The Dry

Michael Robotham - The Secrets She Keeps. Very good writer

And

Joy Ellis - Crime on the Fens. Not read her before but she's had good reviews and there are a few books in the series.

Tonight I will be starting Last Seen by Lucy Clarke.

The Angela Marsons book was called Evil Games and was very good.

Numbers one and two not as good as usual, sadly. Still not bad though.

Three - A decent start to a series.

Am now reading All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It's sad and hopeful and beautifully moving.

The One
The Good Samaritan

presently reading a Robert Crais novel--a modern style of the classic LA detective genre.

I am going to read the Mystery Man series by Colin Bateman, I read the first one years ago and never got round to reading the rest. It was very funny from what I remember, totally ridiculous.

Ive just finished Linwood Barclays new one, “A Noise Downstairs”.

God I was disappointed. I love Barclay but this book just frustrated me.

I'm on the last chapter of The Good Samaritan. Brilliant idea for a book and very well written but relentlessly desolate. Couldn't stop reading though.

had five wishes for years. how I know this My Son was 3 when the Hamster bit His finger and started crying. He remembers the Hamster to this day. at the time I was storing my books in a closet. the Hamster managed to make its way into the closet destrying a few books for bedding. the corner of Gay Hendricks book has evidence of the Hamster. for the past few months I have seen the book often, even picked it up off the floor to return to My library after Daughter was playing with the books. I plucked it again from My library just to read the summery. I ended up reading the first chapter. I feel I could have finished the book in less than two hours, I decided one chapter and the next I can take notes. His surmisation of His death bed regret is how I have focused My attention for over 15 years though not as concisely as Mr Hendrics. I have a strong feeling I will learn alot from this book.
