I haven't read Devil Bones yet. Deja Dead is good. I've read several others of hers, one I think was Bones to Ashes. I don't remember all the titles, I have to read the synopsis all the time or I'll get the same book again! Hope you are feeling better soon.

thank you i am feeling a little bit better. fever is down to 100 but this throat and ear thing won't let go. my older girl got it 5 days before me and she still has the sore throat and voice coming and going thing. spring sickness stinks, it just hangs on forever. thank you again for the well wishes.

Just started Falling Angels by Tracy Chevalier, who also wrote Girl with a Pearl Earring, which I devoured. This one is great, too. Starts off with a real "bang" and I have a feeling I'm going to eat this one up also.

Omigosh! I loved Falling Angels and I'm sorry I'm done with it. Can't wait to get back to the library and get another Tracy Chevalier book. Her descriptions are fabulous. Like watching a movie in my head!!

Right now I'm reading aloud to my blind friend, Galway Bay. Just finished a few murder mysteries (my favorite vice).

Burke's "Cadillac Jukebox." This is the second one by him I've read recently. The first I read was Tin Roof Blowdown and I loved it. He's amazing at description. Sometimes he can leave me going, "What the heck just happened?" but most of the time he's spot on and vivid in his hyperbole.

The first Burke I read was the one about the Confederate Dead, and I think I've read all of his books. Sometimes a little on the dark side, but I liked them all. I've spent a fair amount of time in the area he writes about which makes it even more interesting. His daughter is now writing as well.

Reading Elena Forbes, a new mystery writer. Two books so far, Die with Me and Our Lady Of Pain. On the back cover it says "dark, chilling and clever". My kind of books.

Just finished "Look me in the Eye" by John Robison. Excellent auto biography of living with Asperger's syndrome. My niece has that syndrome so it was rather enlightening. Now I'm onto the new Odd Thomas book "Odd Hours" by Dean Koontz.
