This is a National Book Award winner (for fiction). It is a beautifully written book. We all enjoyed it very much - we being myself, my father & my husband. Highest recommendation to those readers who enjoy well-written, well-developed stories.
Ha! Delightful!! This is a really fun novel - fun in all senses of the word. Character and plot development is strong; dialog is witty - and there is a happy ending. A super-fun book enjoyed by me, my mother & my daughter - making it a true "multi-generational" book.
This is the 3rd in the Holly Barker series ... pretty good, kept me entertained. Plot was fairly well-developed with only a minimum of what I call "author contrivances." Best part of this book is that Holly has a new love interest! If you're reading the Holly Barker series, then it's worth your time to read this one as well.
This is the 1st of the Cliff Janeway books. My entire little reading circle (Mom, Husband, Friend & Me)all thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a cut above your normal, formulaic cop-murder-mystery books. Well-written with a tightly woven plot and witty dialogue. Well worth your time (and well-worth the credit!)
The 3rd Cliff Janeway book. I think these books just keep on getting better. If you are new to this series, start with the 1st one, Booked To Die! If tightly woven, well-developed crime novels are one of your genres, give this series a try!
This is the 12th Spenser. Hawk plays a major role in this book, which is always fun! This book is also longer than his previous books ... 368 pages of nail-biting action, wise-cracking remarks & cynical humor ... Spenser at his best!
And, yet another great book from Barbara Delinsky. My advice to people considering reading this book - do not be put off knowing that one of the main characters is in the hospital following a car accident. We get the background story through "flashback" and come to know and love the characters in all their faults, hopes, dreams and disappointments. This is a *great* book!
This is the 2nd book in the Lonsesome Dove series. This one finds Gus & Call in their middle years. A wonderful book - not as good as Lonesome Dove (that one would be hard to top), but much better than some of McMurtry's other books, in my opinion.
*Loved* this one!! This is absoultely one of my top three Heyer novels. Lord Rule is absolutely the very best & Heyer is at her all time best with witty & clever dialog. Setting is 1770's; in fact, in the "larger picture," England is trying to tame those rowdy rebels in the American colonies.
In this one, Lord Rule has offered to marry the oldest daughter of a genteel and well-placed, albeit impoverished, family. However, this oldest daughter is madly in love with a young gentleman trying to earn his place in the King's Army. Enter Horatia, the youngest sister, who very bravely offers to marry Lord Rule in place of her sister, strictly as a marriage of convenience, thus, giving Lord Rule the stability his family thingks he needs, the financial support his wife's famiy needs and the freedom for the oldest sister to marry her true love.
