I just finished reading this book last night. I have not read any of Hemingway's books, and I actually found this in the thrift store. My husband's grandfather went to high school with Hemingway, which is why it intrigued me. It takes place in the 1930's in Key West, FL. It was quite interesting!

I read this one too and if you enjoyed this one . I think you would like "The paris wife " which is about hemingways first wife and what she did . I don't want to give too much of the book away but if you start reading it you will
understand why I said what I did .

I just finished "The Last Romantics" by Tara Conklin https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...last-romantics

This was a five star ++ read for me! I was totally engrossed in the book and didn't want to put it down! I loved it from beginning to end! Sorry, but I just couldn't resist the plusses!

Hi All,

Saw these posted on interesting websites you found...two sites where you can download free E-books. I've never downloaded an E-book so can't comment on whether or not they are useful, but here they are if you want to check them out.

I just finished "Sidetracked" by Henning Mankell . It is number 5 in the Kurt Wallender detective series, which was also made into a crime show & has been on PBS. I have never seen the show, but the books are gripping. They are set in Sweden.

Thanks so much . . . "tack sa mycket" in Swedish - one of the few phrases I learned from my Swedish grandmother and which I never get to use!

I loved the crime show and watched every episode. I found them all to be totally engrossing. I'll definitely get the book. Maybe they'll make a movie of it, if I'm lucky.

Try & get them in order I just picked one up, on a whim at the library, & I got hooked, but it was like # 9 or 10, so I went back & started at the beginning.

Good idea. Will do. It's been quite awhile since I saw the show so I won't be so inclined to compare the books and the episodes. That can drive one crazy. I think I'm ready!
