Yesterday was really my day off. I went to Scottsdale, and met up with Louise Penny, author of The Beautiful Mystery. I traded a bag of her beloved gummi bears for an autograph in my copy of the book. (Not really, and she brought me a chocolate bar filled with gummi bears.)
Then, I went to the Poisoned Pen to hear her talk about The Beautiful Mystery. So, here's the most important comment she made in the program. Her books are not really about murder, but what murder dislodges in a community.
I was late enough getting home that I didn't have time to recap the Louise Penny event. And, because I was gone, I didn't have a chance to finish Hank Phillippi Ryan's new book, The Other Woman. I can't do justice to either of them today by rushing through either the recap or the book.
So, I'll do a Sunday event here. I'm finishing Hank's new book. It's terrific, deserving of all the rave reviews it has received. And, today is release day. I'll have the review tomorrow, and the recap on Thursday. So, while I finish both of those, what are you reading?
