I really enjoyed this. I was getting a little worried when no one had been killed at 200 pages. But I thought it had a very satisfying conclusion and ...more

Roadside Crosses (Kathryn Dance, #2)

it was ok
A pretty so-so mystery. Slow paced until the very end, and the material about computers and teens seemed dated and clueless. Also not a lot of kinesic ...more

Devil in a Blue Dress (Easy Rawlins, #1)
3.91
Not bad, but I always feel like I'm missing something when I read Walter Mosley's books. I very much enjoy the look at historical Black LA, though!

La Vida Vampire (Oldest City Vampire, #1)
3.64

A true beach read. Containing elements of chick lit, romance, vampire novels, and mystery, this had no redeeming value but was a lot of fun.

A Question of Honor (Bess Crawford, #5)

did not like it
Went on and on, and was not engaging. The plot didn't seem to be going anywhere. I eventually decided this book wasn't worth my time.
