This was entertaining! I'm glad Stephanie is progressing, at least a little, and this installment had a new plot, which was a BIG improvement. Morelli, Ranger, Diesel- meh, I'm over the will she-won't she and all that jazz. But I enjoyed the Grandma ...more

The Garden of Eden and Other Criminal Delights by Faye Kellerman
"I have long viewed mysteries as the palette cleansers that I read in between denser reads. With the winter doldrums upon me, I notice that I have been reading more mysteries and action novels than usual in order to perk up my mood. One of my go to..." Read more of this review »

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty
"Three couples got together for a barbecue one sunny afternoon. But instead of a delightful, fun social event, the barbecue ended up a turning point for all six people involved and the fallout still ripples through each person and their various rel..." Read more of this review »

This time, the coy puzzle of alternating chapters before and after a significant, darkly hinted event got on my nerves a bit, but I still loved the characters and at the end of the day it was a good story pretty well told.

Katherine Anne Porter
“Don't you love being alive?" asked Miranda. "Don't you love weather and the colors at different times of the day, and all the sounds and noises like children screaming in the next lot, and automobile horns and little bands playing in the street and the smell of food cooking?"
"I love to swim, too." said Adam.
"So do I," said Miranda, "we never did swim together.”
Katherine Anne Porter, Pale Horse, Pale Rider

Rebecca Stead
“If I'm afraid of someone on the street, I'll turn to him (it's always a boy) and say, "Excuse me, do you happen to know what time it is?" This is my way of saying to the person, "I see you as a friend, and there is no need to hurt me or take my stuff. Also, I don't even have a watch and I am probably not worth mugging." So far, it's worked like gangbusters... And I've discovered that most people I'm afraid of are actually very friendly.”
Rebecca Stead, When You Reach Me

Jerome K. Jerome
“I can't sit still and see another man slaving and working. I want to get up and superintend, and walk round with my hands in my pockets, and tell him what to do. It is my energetic nature. I can't help it.”
Jerome K. Jerome, Three Men in a Boat

Meghan Daum
“Also, I was coming up on my five year anniversary of owning the house, and if there's anything I've learned in five years, it's this: if a piece of your house falls off and you don't know what to do with it, throwing it in the trash and forgetting about it is a perfectly viable option.”
Meghan Daum, Life Would Be Perfect If I Lived in That House
