I have had quite a few problems with downloads all from reputable sources. Books that were all blank pages, but mostly numerous typos. In some cases they actually changed the meaning of the text.

1357 For cats and dogs - I've read Murder Past Due. Haven't found the one yet for around the house.

Sherrie - This is a hard time, but don't forget to take care of yourself during this too. It's important to keep you healthy if you are to care for your dad. I went through it with my mom. It's difficult, but the peace you have from the experience is important.

1357 I only read one of Fluke's books and wasn't impressed. I'm a picky reader though. I did keep the book for the recipe in the back.

Loved the Barker and Llewellyn series!

1357 I too have used the books or authors Carolyn Hart has mentioned. I've looked them up and/or made a list. The list was extremely long for the references in just one book. I did read a handful of them, and enjoyed most of what I had read.

1357 Just finished the Shooting in the Shop by Simon Brett. Just as much fun as the earlier works.

1357 I love Caroyln Hart's characters. I can figure out who did it a lot of the time which normally makes me strop reading a series, but I love her characters so much that I just have to keep going with it.
