Nothing like a good book and a pool! Snatching a few pages while Bean has swimming lessons! The instructors have been a godsend with helping him deal with his fear of water on his face.

Mehso-so

The second Book Collector volume picks up about 5 months after the end of the first book. Jordan continues to work for Vera, albeit in fear of losing the job if she can't track down the missing Sayers books. Although various characters displayed some sorts of growth, this book didn't sparkle for me. It didn't make me laugh, I guessed at least 1 of the twists quite early, and I felt little fear in the dramatic climax. Overall meh.
