A big Beyond Her Book thank you to Margie Lawson for stopping by yesterday with her thought provoking Right brain/Left brain challenge and sticking around to answer every poster. You can still take the test and leave your comments. I’m sure Margie will be stopping by again. It was great fun and now for the winners of Margie’s Lecture packages…drum roll please… Clea Simon and Gemma Halliday!! Please send Margie your snail mail address.
November 30th…where has the time gone? 25 shopping days until Christmas, tree to put up, presents to wrap, cookies to bake, lists to make, or whatever your religious background demands of you this time of year. For other people anyway. I only have one thing to do…books to read. And since that’s what I do the rest of the year anyway, the only change for me is hot cocoa replacing cold lemonade and an afghan instead of a fan.
This week I read Lost Girls by Robert Doherty aka Bob Mayer (brilliant and funny half of the team, who with the equally talented Jennifer Crusie brought us Don’t Look Down and Agnes and the Hitman). When I met Bob a while ago, I was whining about the ending of Bodyguard of Lies, a book I really enjoyed until the last page. "What happened to Hannah?" I cried. "How could you leave me hanging like that?" He promptly told me "what happened" and when I asked him why he didn’t put it in the book, he told me because it’s in the next book, Lost Girls. Duh! I hadn’t realized it was going to have a sequel, but suddenly it all made sense. I couldn’t wait to dive in, but alas, there were piles before his.
Well, finally this week I got to satisfy my craving and devoured this book. Young women are being abducted and when their connection is discovered ultra secret Cellar operative Major Jack Gant is sent in to work with profiler Susan Golden. A top level security cover up is in play and the clock is ticking for one lost girl still alive.
This book is a heart thumper and the killings aren’t sissy stuff, but I dare you to try to put this book down once you start reading. I plan to give a copy to my son (not something I can say about all the books I read) and another to my mom, who loves this stuff.
So, now that you’ve checked to see if you won Margie’s prize, stay and post what you’ve been reading for the week.
Bottom Line: Yes, I did use my whole brain to write this blog.
If you have problems posting, please sent your comment to me and I’ll post for you.
