I'm intrigued by the Cheese Shop Mysteries. That sounds like something right up my alley. Of course, I would have to stock up on cheese to really immerse myself properly. =o)
Pure torture... Cheese and Book Pairing Party...

The "Cheese Shop" mysteries are tasty! Avery Aames - A Cheese Shop Mystery series

I'm back to reading my way through magazines. I was >this.close< to finishing the stack of old ones I had, some of which had moved to MA with us. I checked out what kind of offers I could get for my Recylebank points and settled on three magazines. Since then it seems like I get a new copy sooner than once a week! Got to blow through the couple I have before my next requested book is available at the library.

I'm halfway through The Widow File by S.G. Redling.

I had a hard time getting into it (maybe that was just me) but then it started to make sense and I got caught up in it.

"Dani, a data analyst with an elite security firm, possesses the unnerving ability to read people by the trash they leave behind. Receipts, parking tickets, the detritus of daily life—if you leave it behind, she will figure you out.
Her latest case involves high-tech industrial espionage at a corporation with ties to the military. But when a team of assassins sweeps through the firm, stealing all files and killing her coworkers, Dani narrowly escapes. Whoever ordered the strike thinks Dani has vital information and they put a hit man named Booker on her trail.

Armed with only her wits and a bag of random investigation materials, Dani must figure out who the enemy really is while playing a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the cunning hit man who has an agenda of his own."


The Widow File: S.G. Redling: 9781477808610: Amazon.com: Books

Maybe I like it because of Dani's ability to 'read' trash! Just up my alley!

I'm reading "Lost: Cinderella's Secret Diary" by Ron Vitale. It is now 4 years after she married the Prince and all is not happily ever after. It's kind of interesting reading.

Halfway through "Days of Wine and Roquefort" by Avery Aames. Which explains why I haven't been around here much lately. And...I'm off again to read some more.

I just finished "What's so Funny?" Tim Conway's autobiography. I really enjoyed it since he grew up in Chagrin Falls near my hometown and graduated from BGSU where my dad went to school. In fact, they were there at the same time with Tim 2 years ahead of my dad. Now I've gotten into "This Hallowed Ground" which is the history of Arlington National Cemetery. I thought I'd read this since DH is currently working there on the Millennium Project. It's been a great read so far. Starts out with the history of the plantation and how it became the cemetery and moves through history all the way to today. There are lots of interesting stories. The chapter on Kennedy gave a lot of insight into the planning for that funeral. Also, the part I'm reading now dealt with 9/11 and the Pentagon attack. Very good stuff.
