Anything that has a high body count, a serial killer and insects chomping on corpses is all right in MY book!
Not a great book but it fulfills my needs. (Evil laugh inserted here)

(Only 1.99 on my Kindle)
Thanks for the reminder, I've been waiting for this book. I love the Body Farm Books. I've actually considered taking some Forensic Nursing courses.

For anyone who loves the cozy mystery genre, I enjoy looking for authors and book selections on this website: Cozy-Mystery.Com
Thank you for the website info! I'll definitely be visiting there soon.

I love wine but I manage to enjoy modestly priced ones just fine. Don't want to develope a taste for the high muckety-muck kind. I'm on a low muckety-muck budget.

I would think a Forensic Nursing course would be great! When taking microbiology for Dental Hygiene, forensics was a fairly new 'thing' (at least for the public) and I considered taking Forensic Microbiology and dropping Dental Hygiene. But I didn't---- needed to make money immediately.

I've started, "The Finisher", by David Baldacci, it's juvenile fiction similar to Hunger Games and Divergence. Shrek says "The Finisher" ends like it could be continued.

Finished the Divergence Series last night, wonderful stories.

Picked up Diane Mott Davidson's latest Goldie Schulz mystery "The Whole Enchilada". First thing I do with her books is check the recipes. A couple sound good, but I especially enjoyed the first ingredient, with comments, for the "Love-Me-Tenderloin Grilled Steaks". It reads: (use prime grade from Costco, if at all possible). Immediately thought of all you lucky people within reasonable distance to a Costco! If we end up moving back to the city I'd like to live in OH, we'll be about 15 miles away from a Costco.

You liked the Divergent series, Princess Fiona? I liked the first two but really struggled with the third. The two-narrators-with-nearly-identical-mental-voices thing threw me off from the start and then the deeper I got in, the more difficult it became for me to keep reading. The book club I'm in was a 50/50 split. Half loved it, half hated it.

I agree the 2 narrators was difficult, I would have to back up and see who's name was on the chapter. But I enjoyed the story, not wanting to make any spoilers for anyone who has not read the series, yet...hard to discuss the third book. I was glad Shrek wouldn't talk to me about it.
