Finished Lost Among the Living Author: Simone St. James last night.  Several mysteries going on in this one.  I did guess them along the way, but  wasn't positive so it still kept me somewhat at bay.  I did get a little bored with the over descriptive wordiness (Is that even a word).  My first time reading this author so I'm guessing this is her style.  Still not sure if I really liked it or just tolerated it to get the answers.  I will have to read another of her books to decide if I like the style or not.  

I have surprised myself this year I am only one book away from Silver.

I have one more book for the Home Sweet Home category of the basic Challenge - Desert Shadows by Betty Webb is set in Scottsdale, AZ. Still need to read the Complete a Series category of the bonus, and then Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet for the Read the Rainbow bonus, and I'll have earned the Titanium Medal. Right now I'm waiting for a "blue" book from my WL - either Death in Blue Folders by Margaret Maron, Blue Lightning by Anne Cleeves, or The Blue Door by David Fulmer - whichever comes first!
