This book is by J. A. Jance who is a great author. Her mysteries are really well written and have lots of twists and turns in the plot.  I love them.  I have read most of what she has written.  I discovered her while on a cruise to Alaska in 1996.  She was a speaker at one of the events on board the ship.  I love to read mysteries and had not heard of her so I went to listen and really enjoyed listening to her.  Once I got home I looked up her books and have been reading then since.  This particular book is in the Joanna Brady series which is set in Arizona.   Great story!  I love her characters and how they have developed over the course of the whole series.  I would recommend these books and suggest that you start with the first one which is called Desert Heat.

This is a great book by Maeve Binchy. She is a really good author and I have read many of her books. They are all down to earth good books. Her characters are real and could be people you know. She does a great job of weaving a story in which I would like to be in.  :)

I started this book  a couple of weeks ago and just finished it.  I really liked it a lot.  The beginning was a gradual build up of the story line and then about half way through I found that I didn’t want to put it down.  I was even trying to read bits at the stop lights driving home.  I read at lunch time, in the morning while eating breakfast and then in the evening before going to bed.  It was very suspenseful and kept your attention. The author, Steig Larsson,  did  a great  job. :)

Are you one of those people who can’t walk in a bookstore without wanting to buy everything?  I am and I usually always end up buying a book or two that looks interesting.  Being an avid reader, I have a bunch of  books that I have not read yet.  I am going to include those books here too, since most of them I have had for a bit of time.  The one I just finished reading  is called Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich.  It is great.  All of the books in the Stephanie Plum series are hilarous and so funny.  They are a riot….side splitting funny :) I would definitely recommend them for a great easy read.  :)
