The greatest true-crime story in music history, as only James Patterson can tell it.
 
"He turns back to the (cab) driver.  'I'm Mark Chapman  Remember my name if you hear it again.'"  (p X)

Death Comes to the Rectory by Catherine Lloyd ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


January can be such a long month but one bright spot has been the anticipation of a new book in Catherine Lloyd's Kurland St. Mary Mystery series. As you may know, I discovered this series a few years ago when I read book 4 Death Comes to the Fair. I still have book 2 and 3 to read in the series. after reading the author's note at the start of Death Comes to the Rectory, I'm glad I still have those two books to read.

All That We Carried by Erin Bartels ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts


"Midwesterners do dumb things on the one nice day in March.  The thought that winter might indeed have an end makes them giddy, unpredictable and more than a little bit stupid.  They wear shorts, make big plans, believe that this - finally - will be the year they get in shape or go to Paris or write their screenplay." (p 9)

The Fever by Megan Abbott ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


I've often mentioned that when I first started out reviewing that I had trouble saying no to review requests and have a number of books I never got around to. Another area that I struggled with early on was organizing my review copies, particularly on Netgalley. I have a number of e-galleys that archived before I downloaded them. The Fever by Megan Abbott is a book I requested way back in 2014 but didn't get to read. I saw that my digital library had a copy so I thought I would read it now.

Out of Hounds by Rita Mae Brown ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


Rita Mae Brown's foxhunting cozy mystery series "Sister" Jane isn't one I actively seek out but when I see a book in the series I usually pick it up. I enjoy the mystery and the characters are growing on me after a couple of books. Though Out of Hounds is the 13 book in the series, I still don't feel compelled to go back and read the other books in the series.

The Exiles by Christina Baker Kline ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts


"She was starting to think that maybe she belonged in this terrible, beautiful place, with its convict-built mansions, its dense bush and strange animals. The eucalyptus with their half-shed bark and woolly foliage, the orange lichen that spread like molten lava across the rocks.  Here she was, rooted to the earth.  Her branches reaching toward the sky, the rings inside as dense as bone.  She felt ancient as if she'd lived forever, but she was only nineteen years old.  The rest of her life in front of her like a ribbon unfurling."  (p 343)
