Find Them Dead | Peter James

Finally got to start the latest in the brilliant Roy Grace series, book 16. As always this was an excellent read but felt a bit different, initially we find Roy working in London, and there didn‘t seem enough of him or of his team, and the team meetings which are the real strengths of this series for me. However despite this I was hooked throughout and wanted to continue reading. Left on a real cliff hanger so now need to wait a year!

With one day left for #CocoTurns50

One week into #CocoTurns50.

Progress so far :

1. Read 3616/ 4000 pages

✅2. Read 12 / 10 books

3 Read 1/4 NetGalley books

Looks like I should exceed on two targets, but fail miserably on the third one. Really need to prioritise my net galley books over the next week and catch up on reviews.

How has Saturday been? Spent the day sorting work emails,, twitter posts for school and letter to parents. Around that been listening to Duma Key by Stephen King, which is a lot of a Chunkster. #Scarathlon2020 #Screamathon #Cocoturns50 #Deweys24hrs #ReadYourWay #Fraterfestrat #24B4Monday #Whodunitathon

BookwormM Bit of a depressing day here spent all morning getting house ready for viewing the estate agent turned up 10 minutes late it was an agent who had never seen the house clearly hadn‘t read the details didn‘t try and sell it to the viewers and they were here all off 5 minutes. Hubby really annoyed. We plan to take house of the market as soon as contract up as Covid means nothing is happening nothing we are interested in buying. Depressing all over 1y
Andrew65 @BookwormM I‘d feel the same as your husband. 1y

kezzlou85 Been a quiet day here. My grandad came out of hospital which was good. Not covid thankfully. He's 91 so doing well really. 1y
JacqMac @BookwormM How frustrating. 1y
JacqMac @kezzlou85 That‘s great news! I live for any good news these days. 1y
JacqMac I‘m just readathoning over here. Dressed really warm and avoiding the snow filled outside. I also drank enough tea to float away. 1y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick Having a lazy day. Took a leisurely walk with the pup and frolicked in some leaves. @kezzlou85 That's great about your grandfather! 1y
CocoReads First day back at work started off with a no call no show pharmacist. Luckily, my brother in law anticipated this so I called him and he came in. Poor guy is now in the middle of like 12 straight days. But otherwise we had a pretty smooth day. Now time to read for a bit. 1y
TrishB Quiet day doing not much. I find I crave them after manic work weeks. 1y
Andrew65 @TrishB Totally agree! 1y
kezzlou85 @JacqMac yeah me too. Was worried when we went in but luckily he's okay. X 1y
tracey38 @BookwormM oh, that really is depressing, I'm so sorry. @kezzlou85 so happy to hear about your granddad! Happy news! @CocoReads wow! Is it a new pharmacist? That's just insane. Your poor brother-in-law. @TrishB same here. Had a hectic workweek so having as much of a lazy weekend as possible. 1y
JanuarieTimewalker13 I liked that it was set in Florida, near Sarasota (if I recall correctly). It‘s a divergence for him, but I think he lives half the year in Florida. I liked that book! Enjoy! 1y
kezzlou85 @tracey38 thank you. Such great news for us all. My two girls think the absolute world of him because he's so funny. 1y
CocoReads @tracey38 no, he‘s not new. He‘s near retirement and has been on vacation. Pretty sure he forgot he was supposed to come In today because he‘s on vacation next week too. It‘s fine, just annoying. 1y
TheSpineView I'm running late. Saturday was busy with trying to get a project done around the house. It did allow for some good audiobook time. 1y
IamIamIam Glad you got to do some reading! We had my nephew's birthday yesterday so we got together with the family. Relaxing today before the grind tomorrow. 👌 1y
tracey38 @kezzlou85 aww, that's sweet. I'm glad you all have this good news. ❤ 1y
tracey38 @CocoReads very annoying and he should be able to keep up with his schedule better as a professional. Hugs! 1y
CocoReads @tracey38 thanks. Today has been better, my BIL was the scheduled pharmacist so it‘s just him and I again. Luckily we work fairly well together 1y

Clwojick I think I have to read Percy Jackson. I read the first one like a decade ago, but I don t remember anything about it . 1y
Andrew65 I enjoyed the Percy Jackson series and got better as it went along. 1y
CocoReads I‘m a big fan of Rick Riordan‘s Tres Navarre books and I know I read the first Percy Jackson years ago but not any of his others. 1y

Listened to this on audiobook and totally loved it despite having already read it as a #NetGalley book. This really is an excellent book and recommend it strongly, great storylines, great characters, actions, and a strong Covid 19 the e running through it so very current.
