Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments A great opportunity to tackle the stacks in the corner of the bedroom... and let's just whisper that there are a LOT of books on my Kindle
I'll add them as I read.

Did you like it? I have read the second book in this series and I'm debating whether to go back to the first one.

Elle (louiselesley) You know I think have In The Woods on my Kindle.. It's bad that I can't remember if I do or not!!

I did this same thing - read and liked the second book and backed up to read this one. I liked it but it moves very slowly. I got impatient with the detective/narrator toward the end. Cassie is a much stronger character so no surprise she's featured in the second book :)
And is it awful that I also "buy" books only to have Amazon tell me I already purchased it?

Interesting, I thought the second book moved also very slowly, but still liked it because of Cassie.

I have bought a couple of books like that, but now for Kindle books, Amazon warns you on the top of the book page if you've already purchased it. Thank goodness.

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Finished Second Shot (Charlie Fox Thriller, #6) by Zoë Sharp by Zoe Sharp

I can find the link for Angeli to add it to my books on my page, but can't get it to come up here. It just released so maybe that is the issue.

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Finished Let it Burn by Steve Hamilton. I didn't realize this was a series until the #10 popped up when I added it. A good stand alone story and from what I see in the Goodread reviews, it's a good intro to the series.
Now if I was adding to my mountain instead of working it down...


message 13: by Cathy (last edited Feb 02, 2014 11:19AM) (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Hmm, beginning to think I should've picked a higher mountain for this challenge, but the weather is keeping me inside and I'd rather read than watch TV :)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Finished The Color Of Water In July by Nora Carroll by Nora Carroll


C.  (Never msg.  Just comment!  Email if private.) (riedel) Many of us choose slightly lower mountains to guarantee we ascend our goals all the way. Then we up the anti. :) Carolyn.

This is my first year trying this challenge, so yep, a total guess.


message 18: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments The first in a series; not sure I'll continue with it. Until Proven Guilty by J.A. Jance


message 19: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Honeymoons Can Be Murder by Connie Shelton finished it over the weekend


message 20: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Acts of Nature By Jonathon King

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Finished book #11 today: Deceived by Randy Wayne White


message 22: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Book #12 Got Your Number by Stephanie Bond


message 23: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Book #13 - an audio I've been listening to for a while when I walk the dogs. The Deepest Water by Kate Wilhelm I liked several of her other books but struggled with this one. It was pretty obvious who the killer/villain was so I read it for the family dynamics.


C.  (Never msg.  Just comment!  Email if private.) (riedel) I have her haunted-looking one, "Skeleton", which I hope proves to be excellent. I don't know if your pooches' stroll was nocturnal but I wonder how it would feel to listen to a scary mystery while turning corners!

I haven't read that one yet. I've read several of the Barbara Holloway ones and liked them. Re the nocturnal strolls, they're big dogs :)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Book #14 - Gluten for Punishment by Nancy Parra. I enjoyed this one - more plot than I usually see with a cozy. I liked the main character. If I didn't have (shhh) way too many books still piled in the corner, I'd look for the next one in the series.


message 27: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments Oops, forgot to post over here. #15, Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich
"Stephanie" goes to Miami and Cuba
But it was fun :)
And I like Hooker a lot more than Morelli or Ranger


message 28: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments #16 Murder under Cover Would have been a much better book without all the juvenile, 'he likes me and he's so cool and mysterious and hot.'


message 29: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments 17 Death's Half Acre by Margaret Maron. I always enjoy her books :)


message 30: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments 18 Track of the Cat by Nevada Barr.

Double duty here since this was the book of the month for another group I'm in :)


message 31: by Cathy (new)

Cathy (cathy_perkins) | 46 comments 19 Rules of Deception by Christopher Reich; I haven't read a political thriller in a while. This one had me guessing who, if anybody, were the good guys right up to the end.
