The Secret Speech (Leo Demidov, #2)
This was brilliant.

I loved Child 44. Gave it 4 stars. I didn't believe people when they said that this was better.

It is. I could hardly put this boo

B as in Beauty
This was wonderful.

It's so unusual that a "chick-lit" story can put a smile on my face--instead of making me want to heave. B is a real woman, similar

Divided in Death (In Death, #18)
This should probably get 3 1/2 stars, but I'm rounding up.

Watch Your Back (Romantic Suspense, #15)
I can't review this book without putting personal stuff about me in it. Sorry.

To Beguile a Beast (Legend of the Four Soldiers, #3)
This one might be my favorite of the Four Soldiers series. It really draws you into the time, and yet is modern in thinking.

Cross Country (Alex Cross, #14)
I enjoyed this book--it was pretty typical Patterson, with the exception of the setting.

In this book Cross goes to Africa. In the US we are so lucky

House Rules
Due to a massive train delay I was able to start and finish this book in less than a day.

Fearless Fourteen (Stephanie Plum #14)
