Joy, you'll like the Diane Vallere series.  I had them on Kindle and many times I forget to mention them since they are eBooks.  I lliked her other series too.

I am enjoying the book, Geri!  Although I have to say that this MC appears to be one of those who would go down into a dark cellar at night with an axe murderer loose.  :)  Lots of things going on, like the characters.  One of those you can't  put it down books.  Thankfully I have book 2 sitting on my bookshelf.

My dear brother Arnold Horner died at 1:30 a.m. today.  From the time he was diagnosed to this death was 3 weeks.  A blessing in my eyes.  If one has terminal cancer best not to have to agonize for months, both for the patient and the family.  He simply went to sleep peacefully this morning.

The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler. I'm told this is the first Philip Marlowe novel. Starts with an old man in bad health and 2 scheming daughters. Brings King Lear to mind. Have to read on the see where the story goes.

I am reading Seneca Falls Inheritance :: Miriam Grace Monfredo

It is an older book set in 1848, update New York. Good background on the beginings of the Woman's rights movement and settlement of of upstate New York. This book has been sitting on my bookshelf for a long time. It is quite good

I'm in computer hell.  It's in for repair.  But! Plenty of time to read.  But... Either heaven or hell there too.  Got th newest Argeneau yesterday.  Had started 13 Diamonds.  I was a bit reluctant to begin and now torn as to what to read!  I just started the latest Shaye Archer book by Jana DeLong.  This is her thriller series. I have it on my kitchen Kindle.  While I cook or eat.  Now if only I could have them all in front of me!

I got 13 Diamonds for a challenge.  At this point I can't say which.  Older woman living in an independant senior facilty.  Another resident dies and just like her twenty something counterparts - why, how.  Good read so far.  I think it could be a great pick your own category.  Seniors.  I have another with an over 50 woman.  I might change my category!!!

Was able to obtain some of Mel Starr's series about Hugh de Singleton, surgeon.  Am in the midst of The Abbot's Agreement.
