My August reading list: 

Finished -

  1. "CAPE PERDIDO" by Marcia Mueller (unabridged Audio Cassette) (A-) Amid ancient redwoods and sun-dappled reeds, the Perdido River runs clear and cold from the mountains of Soledad County to the blue Pacific. A wildlife refuge and a pristine recreational area, the river brings tourists to the old lumber town of Cape Perdido. Now, that is about to change. An out-of-state corporation wants to pump the river nearly dry and float the water to southern California's thirsty cities. With lobbyists, lawyers and dirty tricks, the company intends to get what it wants - any way it can. Ecologist Jessie Domingo hopes to grab headlines for her cause. Environmentalist Joseph Openshaw has come back to the home and the secrets he left behind decades ago. His former lover, local restauranteur Steph Pace, fears both the emotions and the ghosts arriving to haunt her. And old man Timothy McNear, owner of the defunct mill, silently broods about the sins he has hidden for too long. But no one envisions what will happen when the crack of a sniper's bullet sets off a chain of desperate acts. As the peace of this small town is shattered, murder stains Cape Perdido, and one by one, those who stand tall for a cause may be swept away by the current of a town's ugly truths - and a killer's revenge.
  2. "THE SWEETHEARTS' KNITTING CLUB" by Lori Wilde (Twilight Texas #1) (A+) For ten years, pretty Flynn MacGregor has been turning down the same solid, upright man's marriage proposal. Her friends at the Sweetheart's Knitting Club tell her they're a match made in heaven, but Flynn knows there's only one dangerous reason why she keeps saying no: high school sweetheart Jesse Calloway. She was just sixteen when Jesse was forced out of town under a cloud of suspicion but he's never left her heart. Now Jesse is back and every time she turns the corner he's there, gazing at her with his smoldering eyes and tempting her with his kisses. Jesse has never played by the rules and he's made it clear that he's not going to now. And Flynn, who's always done just what her family, friends and fellow knitters have told her to do, must finally break free and claim the love that binds Jesse to her heart.
  3. "EDGE OF EVIL" by J.A. Jance (Alison Reynolds #1) (A) The end of her high-profile broadcasting career came too soon for TV journalist Alison Reynolds - bounced off the air by executives who wanted a "younger face." With a divorce from her cheating husband of ten years also pending, there is nothing keeping her in L.A. any longer. Cut loose from her moorings, Ali is summoned back home to Sedona, Arizona, by the death of a childhood friend. Once there she seeks solace in the comforting rhythms of her parents' diner, the Sugarloaf Cafe, and launches an on-line blog as therapy for others who have been similarly cut loose. But when threatening posts begin appearing, Ali finds out that running a blog is far more up-close and personal than sitting behind a news desk. And far more dangerous. Suddenly something dark and deadly is swirling around her life and a killer may be hunting her next.
  4. "SIZZLING SIXTEEN" by Janet Evanovich (unabridged Audio CD) (Stephanie Plum #16) (A+) Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money. Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, Connie and Lula have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the cash. Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Between a bonds office yard sale, a plan that makes Mooner's Hobbit-Con look sane, and Uncle Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save Vinnie and the business from ruin. Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep being a bounty hunter.This involves hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a Turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer. The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky - the only question is...with whom?

  7. "THE PENALTY BOX" by Deirdre Martin (Blade #4) (A+) Everyone from Didsbury High remembers Katie Fisher as the dumpy brainiac from the poor side of town. Everyone from Didsbury High remembers Paul van Dorn as the school hockey star and heartthrob. But now they're facing off and matching up in more ways than one. Katie's lost the pounds, added some self-confidence, and become a drop-dead gorgeous sociology professor. And since a series of concussions put an end to Paul's pro-hockey career, his star has dimmed. Now he hits the ice as a youth hockey coach. But he's still got the hometown crowd behind him as the owner of a bar called the Penalty Box. Paul is reliving his glory days. Katie wishes she could put those years behind her.

Breeze Inn is a place where the very classy BeBe wouldn't normally be caught dead but, with no alternative, she vows to make magic out of mud. The work is grueling, especially dealing with the cantankerous caretaker, a fishing captain named Harry who's trying to earn enough dough to get his boat out of hock. With the help of Harry, BeBe soon has the motel spiffed up and attracting paying guests. Then there's a sighting of Reddy in Fort Lauderdale, and BeBe decides to go after him. The plan is to carry out a sting that may be just a little bit outside the law but with any luck at all, will retrieve BeBe's fortune and put the dastardly Reddy in jail where he belongs.

  15. "THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS" by Debbie Macomber (A) What would make your Christmas perfect? For Cassie Beaumont, it's meeting her perfect match.

He's Simon Dodson, and he's very choosy about the clients he takes on. Cassie finds Simon a difficult, acerbic know-it-all, and she's astonished when he accepts her as a client. Claiming he has her perfect mate in mind, Simon assigns her three tasks to complete before she meets him. Three tasks that are all about Christmas: being a charity bell ringer, dressing up as Santa's elf at a children's party and preparing a traditional turkey dinner for her neighbors (whom she happens to dislike). Despite a number of comical mishaps, Cassie does it all and she's finally ready to meet her match. But just like the perfect Christmas gift, he turns out to be a wonderful surprise!

So Ali must return to the scene of these crimes. As she passes the site of a horrifying accidnet, she thanks goodness it's no longer her job to report the news. Until she finds out the news is her own. For the victim is Ali's cheating husband, and soon she'll find herself the prime suspect at the center of a terrifying web of evil.

Now Laurel is repaying the kindness of her friends by creating extravagantly luscious tiers of cakes and other confectionary delights that add the prefect touch to their clients' weddings. As for romance, Laurel believes in it - in theory. But she's too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that other women seem to long for. What she does appreciate is a strong intelligent man, a man just like Parker's older brother, Delaney Brown, on whom Laurel has had a mega crush since childhood. But some infatuations last longer than others and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her, or so she thinks. When Laurel's quicksilver moods get the better of her - leading to an angry hot, altogether mind-blowing kiss with Del - she'll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever.

But it is only when she returns to New York that the mystery unfolds.

At the tender age of thirteen, Holly fell in love with Lorrie Beaumont, who inherited the Revolutionary-period estate when his heiress mother died during childbirth. Though more than a decade has passed since Holly last locked eyes with her childhood love, the passion she feels in her young heart has never come close to extinguishing - that is, until charming, ruggedly handsome Nick Taggert unexpectedly waltzes into her life and treats her to an unforgettable weekend of laughter and intense passion. Despite Holly's undeniable attraction to this dazzling stranger, she knows he's not marriage material. What Holly doesn't know is that Nick Taggert is actually Dr. Nicholas Taggert. Having been with more than his share of women only interested in money and pedigree, Nick decides to test Holly and conceal his more refined qualities. Will Holly be seduced by Lorrie's wealth and privilege, or will she choose the simple gift of love that Nick has offered her? The answer is unveiled on a starry Christmas night, when passion, hate, and greed collide to reveal bitter truths that will forever change the course of Holly's charmed life.

Using her contacts in the zookeeping world, Neva and Sam hatch a plan to send Hannah to an elephant sanctuary - just as the zoo's angry, unhappy director launches an aggressive revitalization campaign that spotlights Hannah as the star attraction, inextricably tying Hannah's future to the fate of the Max L.

  23. "THE SEARCH" by Nora Roberts (unabridged Audible) (A++) To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life: a quaint house on an island off Seattle's coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare. Several years ago, she was the only survivor of a serial killer - a madman who stalked and abducted young women, strangled them, and left them buried with a red scarf on their bodies. As authorities were closing in on the Red Scarf Killer, he shot and killed Fiona's cop fiance and his K-9 partner. On Orcas Island, Fiona has found the peace and solitude she needed to rebuild her life. Yet all that changes on the day Simon Doyle barrels up her drive, desperate for her help. He's the reluctant owner of an out-of-control puppy, foisted upon him by his mother. Jaws has eaten through Simon's house, and he's at his wit's end. To Fiona, Jaws is nothing she can't handle. Simon is another matter. A newcomer to Orcas, he's a rugged and intensely private artist, known for creating exquisite furniture. Simon never wanted a puppy, and he most definitely doesn't want a woman. Beside, the lanky redhead is not his type. But tell that to the laws of attraction. As Fiona embarks on training Jaws and as Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona's life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands.

Now as members of the Hot Flash Club, where the topics of motherhood, sex and men are discussed with double servings of chocolate cake, they vow to help one another and themselves. For these women, the time has come to use it or lose it, be it their bodies, their brains, their spirits, or their sense of fun. Together they realize that they can have it all, perhaps for the first time in their lives.

Determined to save his father from a ruthless blackmailer, Penn stumbles over a link to the town's darkest secret: the thirty-year-old unsolved murder of a black veteran.

I'm reading as fast as I can, but my TBR pile just keeps growing!!

Here's my list for August. TBR in no certain order, but as the mood hits......

Carolina Girl by Patricia Rice

Right Next Door by Debbie Macomber --- A quick read, typical Debbie Macomber.

Angels by Marian Keyes --- I really like Marian Keyes books. They're funny and profound at the same time. Maggie is like people I know, maybe even a little like me!!

About Face by Fern Michaels --- reading now

The Cabin by Carla Neggers --- As usual, a very tense plot and well-developed characters. This is the 2nd in the Texas Ranger series.

Murder in the House by Margaret Truman --- I think Margaret Truman writes a very good mystery. Not a lot of blood and gore, but always a good plot with interesting characters. Her inside knowledge of Washington, DC enhances the story, oftentimes it's like reading the daily headlines.

Silent Partner By Jonathan Kellerman ---Not one of my favorite Kellerman books, he goes into deep psychological detail that got boring. I kept reading to see how it would relate to the story and I guess it did, but I really had to force myself to keep going. He tried to tie it all together in the end, but there were so many characters involved that I didn't find the ending to be satisfying.

Copy Cat by Erica Spindler--- My first Erica Spindler book and I'm hooked!! I really like her writing style; short chapters, ala James Patterson, very intriguing plot, surprise ending. I highly recommend this book for those who haven't read any of hers, possibly a continuation of another book,same characters, but it also stands alone.

Fool's Puzzle by Earlene Fowler  --- A quick read, very enjoyable, the first in the Bennie Harper series. I'll be reading the others as time allows.

Captive of My Desires by Johanna Lindsey

Hope to Die by Lawrence Block --- This is my first Lawrence Block novel and I really liked it. He's got a smooth writing style and the plot was a page-turner. I'll definitely be reading more by him.

Return to Summerhouse by Jude Deveraux --- Ok, but I liked The Summerhouse better. The ending in this one seemed very rushed, like the author was hurrying to tie up loose ends.

Thyme of Death by Susan Wittig Albert --- I really enjoyed this first in the China Bayles series. Learned a lot about herbs while reading a well developed plot, the murderer was a complete surprise!

Lost Highways by Curtiss Ann Matlock--- Loved this book!! I started it yesterday afternoon and finished it at 2:30 this morning. The characters are so well-developed and true to life. A joy to read.

Blessings in Disguise by Eileen Goudge --- up next

The Search by Iris Johansen --- waiting in the wings

New authors this month:  Susan Wittig Albert,    Lawrence Block,    Erica Spindler

Finished, : Haunting Women: Collection of short sureal and horror stories by women! Will get back to this at some point,.lots that I didn't get to.

Fiction on a Stick: Short stories by Minnesota Artists: Really good collection based on theme of areas at Mn. State Fair

Started: The Girl who played with Fire~Steig Larsson : Into it! I can't tell if it is better than Dragon Tattoo but it is beginning to pick up pace.

The Sundial~Shirley Jackson: quirky in an Adams family way, wow!

The Sun Also Rises: Hemingway, been picking this up meaning to read it for a long time,so I picked it up again.

Every Man Dies Alone~Hans Fallada : recently translated and published real life story of Berlin in the early years of WWII, about a couple who sets up a resistence cell in a factory. So far it offers a kind of reality check description about the time that helps to clarify how and why things happened as they did. Update: the edition I had was hardcover from the library so I will pick it up again when it goes more portable and less doorstoppish. However,having read the first 50 pages, I have to say that although it is engaging and even gripping in some ways, I found much of the dialogue to be klunky and not that appropriate to the period. 

My Name is Asher Lev~Chaim Potok; I have been hearing about this book for a long time but I am not far enough in it, it hasn't gripped me ye

Re-reading: The History of Love~Nicole Krause: loved it when I read it a year ago,worth a second reading!

Next: I have unearthed alot of books to be next in looking for my copy of the Beowulf new verse translation by Seamus Heany; haven't found it yet but found alot of others I should attack like: Still Alice, Beautiful Inez, Rolling Stone Interviews (revised from 1983 ed) some others TBD.among others.

Finished 16 Lighthouse Road last night and now have started The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen.  I can't make a list of what I'm going  to read for the month because my mind changes so much.  I know that I will read one classic (for my classic challenge), one Oprah book club book, and the rest will be from the numerous series that I have started.

Finished up Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok and can highly recommend it, as well as The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson (Audio).

Currently reading Dreaming Water by Gail Tsukiyama and listening to Coal Run by Tawni O'Dell.

I gave up on Never Look Away by Linwood Barclay last night. Truly awful. Not likely to ever pick up another one of his books again.

3.  A Little Fate - Nora Roberts : Not bad.  It's actually 3 short stories.  The  first one, The Witching Hour, is ok, just not up to her usual level.  Winter Rose is a beautiful fairy tale that starts out a little slow but finishes as well as anything she's ever written.  The last one, A World Apart I didn't like much at all.
