This Week In Books

Another busy week at the K household, but no complaints in my part. I rather be busy than bored out of my mind. While having my many "usual" chores to do, I was never away from a book or an audio book.

What's not to love about this series? Four amazing women that are the best in their fields, together they find individuals that guilty of hanous crimes.

There have been unexplained deaths at a private hospital. Patients receiving the wrong medication, and being found with bottons on their eyes. Also Lindsay is trying to figure who is killing call girls and leaving them in luxury cars.

The 5th Horseman by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro (4.5/5) Mystery; Published: Little, Brown & Company (February 2006); Series: # 5, The Women's Murder Club; Library Book

The third book of The Bottom Dollar Girls series. I listened to this book at home.

In this book, Mavis and her "so called best friend" Birdie are at odds because they are interested in the same beau. Mrs. Tobias has possibly found a new love but she's questioning their social differences. And Elizabeth after being a stay at home mom for ten months, she ready to go back to work but is her husband ready for the change yet? Attalee is planning her dream wedding the only way she knows how, big and bold...

This book really hit the spot. After listening to The 5th Horseman, I needed something lighter to listen to, and this book full of laughs and smiles and ol' fashioned friendship and that was what I needed.

Dollar Daze by Karin Gillespie (4/5) General Fiction; Published: Simon & Schuster (August 1, 2006); Series: # 3, The Bottom Dollar Girls; Library Book

What's a woman to do, when she finds her ex-husband, dead, in her kitchen? Should she call her almost married boyfriend? Or should call her best friend, a priest? And what about that mob boss that just doesn't leave her alone?

I read the first book of the series, Murder 101, last year. And I really enjoyed it. I love the main character, Alison, she's smart, quirky and for some reason has this ability to find dead bodies on her property. And the second didn't disappoint.

Extracurricular Activities by Maggie Barbieri (4.5/5) Mystery; Published: St. Martin's Minotaur (December 2007); Library book
