I'm mostly a cozy mysteries reader. Love the ones that include recipes (natch'
) and have tried quite a few of them. Love peoples' reactions when they ask where I got the recipe and I say "oh, a murder mystery". Usually stops their fork mid-air!
I assure them none of the recipes includes any poison.
There are so many authors I follow that have great character development but I've run out of their currently written books. Gotta start expanding my search to others. Having enjoyed the Margaret Truman books I'm thinking it's about time I worked my way through David Baldacci - his books are always flying off our library's shelves. Also want to read Patterson's "Women's Murder Club" series because I enjoyed the short-lived series so much. Never could get into his Alex Cross books though. Maybe those two series will be my "light reading" for this summer!
I'll pick up a non-fiction to break up the killings. Currently reading "Francona: The Red Sox Years" since we've lived here all his Red Sox managerial time and now he's the manager for my hometown Cleveland Indians. During his tenure up here Himself (not a big baseball fan but puts up with me) would say "why can't we get a manager like that?" when Francona's post-game presser was shown during the news. Needless to say I was thrilled when I could tell him "we did!". Being a real sports nut (at neighborhood parties I'm usually the only girl in the room with the guys talking sports...) I followed a lot of the inside stuff up here when Tito was running the Red Sox. Glad to see he's with a team that has a lot less drama that goes with it.
