I love the Reacher novels. This is however not a novel it is a short story. None of the Reacher gloss is lost from the fact that this is not a full novel.

Can you imagine? I‘d love to write a good book one day...someday...somewhere over the rainbow! Enter Lee Child and the bar is set. Each word counts. Each sentence builds. Every chapter adds velocity and the resolution? Forget sizzling, it should be sexy as hell, with just enough “I knew it” to sing you into a fully Reacher‘d oh no you didn‘t, girl! A very very very smart mystery.

MellieAntoinette Sing us out Jessie J - It‘s not about the money 💵 💰/ you‘re buying Reacher mystery history wizardry / He just wanna be a nomad / Forget about the Price Tag!!! 😜 3mo

Do you judge a book by its price? Well, have I got a deal for you! Jack Reacher is like a good Jessie J song, forget about the Price Tag, cause he‘s worth every penny - all 799 of them U.S.! The checkered flag drops on the first sentence and we‘re off to the races with an expertly crafted military mystery that flies from zero to 498 in a breath of words.

“He bolted up the hall, lopsided on one shoe, each step jarring some truth into his hungover brain. That he wore wet, orange boxer shorts, a soaked white T-shirt, one sock, one shoe and no wallet, no pager, no ID, no car keys, and no fucking ChapStick.“ [187]

I feel your pain, Jeffrey. I take my ChapStick very seriously myself. One in pretty much every room of the house, a pocket of every coat, each purse/bag. It's important!

TrishB Me too! 4mo
Mollyanna 🙋🏻‍♀️. I‘m with ya. 4mo
jb72 I‘ve never been a chapstick kinda gal. 4mo

JoyBlue @jb72 Lucky you! 😉 I get stabby if my lips get dry. 🗡 4mo
JoyBlue @TrishB @Mollyanna Hello, sisters! 4mo
Zelma Same here. I have stopped and bought it when I realize I left it at home. It‘s a sickness. 4mo
JoyBlue @Zelma I've read that it actually is an addiction. Sigh. One year, my lips got super-dehydrated on an extremely hot day. I switched to lanolin (nipple cream, believe it or not) for a few days. I hated how suffocating and sticky it was (but it worked). 4mo
Zelma @JoyBlue it may be an addiction but at least it‘s not meth. 😏 in desperation, I‘ve used lotion too. 4mo
JoyBlue @Zelma True—good point! 4mo
iread2much I have switched to more natural versions of lip Balm, but I won‘t leave the house without it! I keep at least one in each purse, one in my work bag, one is my pockets and an emergency one in a bag I also put everyday things I need to add to a purse and/or workbag 😄 it‘s true that the larger brands do put in a lot of additives that can contribute to your needing chapstick, but for those of us with chronically dry lips balm is a must! 4mo
JoyBlue @iread2much What brand works for you? 4mo
iread2much @JoyBlue I use balm standard for day time https://www.balmstandard.com and L‘occitane pure Shea butter at night (also good for hands!) 4mo
JoyBlue @iread2much Thanks for the recommendations! 4mo
iread2much @JoyBlue my pleasure! 4mo
JoyBlue @iread2much I just received my second order of Balm Standard. Thanks for hooking me up! 💙 3w
iread2much You are welcome! 3w

I have a new list of authors to try, thanks to this anthology! Of course, I'm excited that two of my favorites—Kathy Reichs and Lee Child—were matched up. Their story was among the especially good ones.

I was interested to learn that The International Thriller Writers (ITW) no longer charges membership dues. Instead, it publishes anthologies like this to support itself. So, I've added the 2014 anthology, FaceOff, to my wish list, as well.

JoyBlue It was hard to get a good shot, but you can see Milo, ball python extraordinaire's boop snoot in the doorway of his cool hide at the right of this shot. It's a little early for him to be peeking. Sadly, I don't have time to play with him right now (also, it's feeding night, so I'd better not get him excited, anyway). 🐍 💙 4mo
iread2much What a cool concept! 4mo

Just recently discovered Libby, it makes it so easy to borrow Kindle books from the library-- I feel like I've discovered a bunch of treasure. 😊

I've read most of the Jack Reacher books, so this one should be fun.

Griffin, my 16 lb cat, approves. Or, wants to mark my Kindle as his territory, or both. But he probably wants attention and food.

Slajaunie He‘s adorable! 6mo

Karin Slaughter‘s Will Trent meets Lee Child‘s Jack Reacher. Can Fort Knox handle these two?

A short novella packed with action and detail. Hoping to see more of this collaboration.

#WillTrent #JackReacher #KarinSlaughter #LeeChild #novella #Hoopla

TrishB Is it worth it? Q9.89 for about 80 pages? 6mo
SW-T @TrishB I read it on Hoopla so it was a free read for me. For Q9.89 I‘d hesitate to be honest. The Hoopla copy was 94 pages, but that included author notes about the collaboration plus a preview. It was good but worth Q9.89? Hard to say. 6mo
TrishB Thanks 👍🏻 I want to read as it‘s about Will, but I‘m a bit miffed at the price! May wait for an offer. 6mo
