I brought home some intriguing looking books this week. Jim already finished two of his books, John Grisham's The Associate, and James Patterson's Run for Your Life.
I picked up four new books. Honestly Dearest, You're Dead is Jack Fredrickson's second mystery featuring eccentric Chicago P.I., Dek Elstrom. He's been named as executor of the will of a woman he never met. It seems like an easy seven hundred bucks, until he finds blood, and worse.
I really liked Robert Ellis' first Lena Gamble book, City of Fire. The Los Angeles cop is back, but she's been ostracized after her last case. When the chief gives her a new case, after an eight month drought, she's pleased, until she realizes she's set up for failure, with an unidentified victim, and a gruesome case that will attract media attention.
I love crime novels, but I do read other books as well. Would you go back in time, and take the road untraveled? In Allison Winn Scotch's book, Time of My Life, Jillian Westfield wakes up seven years in the past. It's before her marriage. Before her daughter. She's back in a fast-paced, single life, with her ex-boyfriend. What if she had chosen that life?
I'm a sucker for certain covers. The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister has one of those covers that reaches out and grabs me. When it hints at kitchens, and comfort, I'm in. This story of eight students who meet once a month in Lillian's restaurant for cooking classes looks promising.
I hope this pile of loot turns out to be a pile of treasures. Did you bring home anything special from the library this week?
