Not h/h but I've been reading the two new Charlaine Harris novels, Midnight Crossing and Day Shift.

I've just finished an incredibly entertaining read called Letters from Yellowstone by Diane Smith.  The author uses letters most effectively to tell her story about a group studying the flora and fauna during a few months in 1898.  It's so well done, filled with humor, messages about life and the intereactions among the members of the team.  Read it.  It's soo good.

I started a very good Historical Mystery last night Blade of the Samurai (Shinobi, Bk 2) :: Susan Spann

It is set in 1565 Japan. Story is around a samurai and Portuguese Jesuit Priest. Good glimpse into Japanse history with an intriguing mystery. Start with book 1 in the series though (Clawas of the Cat).
