Latest Reads

I have been criminally slow in reading lately, but here's a few reviews of the latest titles...


So Cold the River by Michael Koryta

I've been a fan of every mystery novel written by Bloomingtonian Koryta, so when I saw he had a new one, set in French Lick no less, I was eager to get my hands on a copy.

This title was, um, weird. A mystery bottle, human possession, tornadoes, gunplay, mineral water and the West Baden hotels was just a bit of a muddled, strange story.

It was easy to read, and had Koryta's easy prose and occasional wit, but overall, I found myself as cold as the river when I was done. Just an odd book...not what I was expecting...

Financial Peace Revisited by Dave Ramsey

Just a quick reread as a reminder...










 The Pallbearers by Stephen J. Cannell

I'm a big fan of Cannell's "Shane Scully" series, and this is the latest entry - this time featuring a suicide that is not what it seems, a group of former foster kids with a lot of scars, a bit of surfing, and of course, the usual LAPD drama and gunplay. Another fun entry - and a great listen, narrated by Scott Brick.








Insatiable by Meg Cabot

Anything that combines vampires, Meg Cabot, a juicy cover and a lot of humor is going to rank high with me, and this adult title did! Meena Harper is just a run of the mill NYC girl, working for a soap opera when she is thrust into one of her own - with the prince of darkness. A light, funny, fresh take on the vampire genre - love it!
