Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Thank you Sara and Family

June 16, 2005

Had a great time at the cookout Wednesday evening. As always the food was plentiful and delicious, and the discussion lively. Thank you for always being willing to open your home to us.

I came home and decided to stay awake a little bit longer and finished First Date by Karen Kendall. It was a light hearted read, without a lot of different characters and settings. It would make a great read for a harried person who didn’t have a lot of time and energy to devote to reading.

As the dinner discussion included having to suspend belief in the realities of life I’d like to say to read First Date you don’t have to do that. However don’t go into this expecting the next great American Novel either, because you’ll be disappointed for sure.

As I’ve mentioned previously I’m slowly working my way through the In Death books. I read the novella Midnight In Death after I finished Riggs Park. I almost wish that there had been a previous book about the villian in Midnight In Death, and that it had been a follow up story. Midnight In Death can be found in the anthology Silent Night.

Anthology…that brings up a good thought…wonder who amongst us reads anthologies? Do you read every story in one, or just the story by the author who most appeals? In this particular case I only read the Robb story, but am going to keep the book to read the other stories when it’s just a bit closer to Christmas.

Now I’m off to read Old Boyfriends by Rexanne Becnel. Haven’t read but a paragraph yet, and so commenting would be just a bit premature.
