This one was not the best Tempe Brennan book she has done but it was entertaining. Tempe is being framed for slop shod work, but she does not know who is doing the accusations.
She has several new assistance and doctors at work with her, It could be any one of them.
Several old cases come by her and she and Ryan attempt to figure out if there is a serial killer or these are random acts of violance.
Tempe's neighbor is also causing problems he is fussing about the cat of all things..
I would like to see Tempe and Ryan get it together and finalize their relationsship so to speak. Be a couple or not!

Don was a average Christian man, coming home from a convention when his small car was crushed by a 18 wheeler.
The EMT's checked for pulse and life signs and found none.
Along comes another minister, who insisted to pray for this dead man.
The ministers prays, and led by the Spirit of God, speaks life into the dead body...he starts singing "What a friend we have in Jesus", and the corpse comes to life singing also.
The EMT's are harder to convince but they eventually come at the minister's prodding and all hell breaks loose. The dead man is back to life.
The rest of the tale is Don's experiance with experimantal bone growing devices and the intense pain and depression that he had.
A very real and honest account of a Christian struggling in day to day lie with cronic pain.

This is a good strong story, and it has enough personal interactions to keep it a page turner. It does have some strong language, so beware.

This is a awesome look into the heart and mind of the deep south in the late 50's and 60's.
The author dyes his skin and becomes black. He instantly get treated differant by the whites and blacks alike. I remember the blacks only water fountians and feeling very bad for my friends who were black that they were "differant." To me they were just friends.

It is a very sad, and thoughtful book. I highly recommend it. VERY well written.
I give it 6 stars

This is about two of the world's best cavers: American Bill Stone and Ukrainian Alexander Klimchouk... these two men are looking for the same thing: the world's longest deepest cave.
This is a good book, well researched and has action and adventure galore... you can almost feel the water, the noise from the waterfalls and the darkness all around you.
These men and women explorers, experiance hunger, fatigue, hallucinations, injuries and sometimes death on their quest to find the deepest cave in the world.
This is not something I would ever choose to do, but this book gives youo such a good description of what is going on it is like you are there.... one passage describes a caver coming upon thousands of daddy long legs inches from his face, and every time he breathed they'd get aggitated.. (((YIKKS))
if you like action adventure it is the book for you...

This book is set in the mountains of N.C. in Grace. The Church of the Everlasting Sin has a base there and Tessa a Haven Operative is sent to infiltrate.
Rev. Samual was severely abused as a child and during a rape, has his physic powers awaken. Later, he is hit by lightening during a tent revial and it increases his powers.
He is evil and takes power off the other women in the group.
This book had a lot of dialogue and it took a while to even get into the good parts of what was going on. Had alot of fits and starts.
This one was not as good as the others of hers i have read.

This book is not one of Kellerman's best with Alex and Milo. I usually love Milo and Alex together, but this one kinds lagged.

The book starts off with a high school student getting a call about something in the marsh, where he is volunteering. The director of Save the Marsh is a weird old coot and checks in but the high school student keeps mum about the weird call.
The next day, the body is discovered. A bright young piano teacher is found, with her hand cut off. Soon more bodies begin to pile up and they are all facing east, with the right hand cut off.
Milo and Alex go on the hunt.Several new characters lend a good mix in this story and it does get interesting, it just did not have the verve that the first Milo and Alex stories had.
Hope the next ones pick up the beat..

This was the sweetest little book about a stray cat this couple took in. She worked her way into their hearts and bed. Squeeky was very talkative and loving, had many hunting episodes and triumphs over the neighborhood cats.
a very nice book to give any cat lover.

This was a good book, but got wordy through out the whole thing. He gives some good examples of what he is trying to convey with snap shots into his past.
Some of the stories are real funny, and make me so glad i was not raised in a christian school.
He give some good though provoking questions at the end of each chapter to round out the feel of that chapter.

I used to love this series but the past three books have been forced and lacking in interesting plot and story.
Eric is my fav but he seems flat in this book so much so that i almost just put this down and walked away. Bring back the intensely interesting plot we came to know and love...
And what happened to Elvis/Bubba?? He disappeared...killing off Claudine?? It just is so lacking...please bring back the Sookie/Eric vibe we all loved..
the best book was when Eric was bewitched and fell in love..
