Good Morning Ellen,

I'm about a quarter of the way through Spandau Phoenix. It's Greg Iles first book. I've read a couple of others by him and they are excellent suspense mysteries. This first one is good, but not what I would call a page turner. Obviously, practice makes perfect in his case. Blood Memory and True Evil are ones I highly recommend if you're interested in trying some of his books, especially Blood Memory. I loved that book!

Hopefully before the week is up I'll be into Death at Daisy's Folly by Robin Paige. It's a Victorian mystery. This series is written in the style of a British cozy. There are always famous names used as characters who are involved in the mystery along with every day normal folks. Just nice comfortable fast reads. I really enjoy them. In fact, I think that's why my present book seems to be dragging a little. I'd really rather be reading this other one! LOL!!

I am starting a new to me author, Wally Lamb's The Hour I First Believed.


But it's the sixth book I've read (most of them this summer) about school violence/ shootings.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through Cost by Roxana Robinson. I just got back form holidays and I didn't get much reading done. She is a new author to me and I'm enjoying the book.
