While Bailey is sleeping I didn‘t snooze with this one. I love a well written and everyone‘s points of view. I did think half way through that the end was certainly going to be very important to me with all these chart. Ms. Reid did not disappoint.

Been in a reading slump so I was happy to get a new Russell and Holmes as I have enjoyed Laurie King‘s stories. This one did not disappoint as Mary agrees to help her friend find her aunt who did not return to Bedlam with her nurse after a party.

minkyb My daughter loves this series and keeps urging me to start. I am afraid that if I pick up the first one I will get hooked and want to read them all! Laurie King is a wonderful author. 1y

1. Introvert, though I try to “extrovert” on occasion.
2. Do more, time is ticking
3. Movie
4. Clean. It is kind of sad that one of the things I really detest is the thing I have to do every where. Found wild caught catfish so cooking was good.
5. Re-reading a favorite or if I am lucky one of my favorite authors has a book come out that sucks me in. And I think I am coming out of a major slump caused by that lack of focus brought on by stress.

Sandford doesn‘t disappoint. I was a little worried as I didn‘t think it would be as good as the last one in the Lucas Davenport series but it was another page turner. Assignation, murder, corruption, just another day for the Senate in Washington.

DGRachel Oh good! I‘m so glad we can talk about it now. 1y
DGRachel So... I freaked when Weather got smashed and sent to the hospital. I hope my overall positive tone on the book didn‘t spoil the suspense for you there. What did you think about how Lucas managed to manipulate the senator‘s demise? 1y
dsfisher I feared she would go after his family but such violence and I do love how they were caught out. And I figured that he was telling the girlfriend everything for a sneaky reason, loved that phone call at the end. 1y
