It looks very good, I added it to my list!

The Adoration of Jenna Fox, by Mary E. Pearson. It's my Niece's summer reading project and I swiped the book for a couple nights. Excellent story!

Working my way through the Henning Mankell Inspector Kurt Wallander series...

I've enjoyed what I have read so far...

I just started reading a series of 19 books by Jeanne M. Dams. They are about Dorothy Martin. She is an American widow who moved to a village in England and turns to her talents of amateur sleuthing.

Last week I discovered Bill Roorbach... Don't know why I hadn't seen his work before..

To date I've read Life Among Giants and The Remedy for Love..

The way he weaves his characters in and out of his stories intrigues me..
There is a bit more sex than I am used to, in most of the books I read but, its so much a part of his story that I hope that wouldn't turn readers away from how he puts together a story... I hope to find more if not all his books in my online library..

Before our trip to Savannah this month, I had been alerted by a friend about a book called "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil". It's a true-life story (and real adventure!) about the city and some of her more colorful citizens, centered around and spun off from the main story about a murder...and the four trials that the accused went through until he was found not guilty! It was an interesting read - I'm planning on ordering up the movie from our library after the holidays.

A book the movie "The Turning Point" is based on. It's called "Ballerina" by Edward Stewart and if you ever wanted to know what the ballet dancers go through to become what they are, this is the book to read.
