This Week’s Reading plus bonus Mini Book Review

The Tale of Hill Top Farm — Susan Wittig Albert
Where We Belong — Emily Giffin
The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. — Nichole Berner
A Teeny Bit of Trouble — Michael West
The Tale of Cuckoo Brow Wood — Susan Wittig Albert

I do enjoy Susan Wittig Albert’s work very much. She always has so much more in her books than just the mystery — herbal knowledge & criminal law procedures (China Bayles books), attention to historical detail (Dahlia books, Beatrix Potter books), that it makes the books a joy to read.

This Week’s Reading

The Time of Giants — Anne Kennedy — I have been waiting for this book *forever* after reading a review of it on Winged Ink. It has been a comedy of errors to get this book from my local library — everything that could go wrong did go wrong. I hope it lives up to the hype it has now achieved in my mind.

Deadline — Fern Michaels — I know I said I really didn’t read her, but I enjoyed Kentucky Rich so much I thought I would try another one.

Twisted Vines — Carole Pierce
Jewelry in a Jiffy — Fransie Snyman
Caveat Emptor — Ken Perenyi
