    I am reading The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson. An interesting read, but I think a poor choice for the title.

  2. Patty Hunt

    i’m reading ” The Force” by Don Winslow. I’ve read and enjoyed others by him, especially The Cartel. It is fiction but scary to think it might be based on fact.
    Denny Malone and his NYPD elite has been given control to “wage war on gangs, drugs and guns”. It is a harsh read so that I need to put it down at times but can’t wait to pick it up again.

    LOVE your blog, Paulette. Glad you’re feeling better.

  5. Nancy Skadden

    I’m reading A Land Remembered historical fiction about the very early days of Florida. What a hard life this family has. Few resources; the trading store over an hour away sometimes has nothing to sell. No flour, no ammunition. The Confederate army demands the the adult males accompany the cattle drive to feed the soldiers, leaving wives and children to fend for themselves. I, used to 21 century luxuries, wouldn’t have made it through those tough times. It’s a great read.

    Hi Paulette – I have been reading the James Runcie “Grantchester” mysteries series. The PBS Masterpiece Mystery series “Grantchester” is based on his books. They are set in the 40’s & 50’s within an English village. Centered around a vicar – Canon Sidney Chamberlain – and involves his personal life, his friend, Inspector Geordie Keating, and his community. Each chapter is a separate mystery and they read quite fast and are good. I have enjoyed them a lot. With so much rain this summer, I have had time to read more and not be on the golf course.
    Hope you are doing well – See you in February.

    If you are into World War II, I recommend The Lilac Girls and The Women in the Castle. If you like art, read The Art Forger.
