I just looked that up on Amazon as you recommend really good reads....sounds so interesting I just ordered it. Of course just have to see the word New Orleans and it grabbed my attention.

I enjoyed the Witching Hour when I first read years ago, the book is so rich in details I'm sure to dicover some I missed last time I read.
Does Anne Rice write anymore?

an old Jonathan Kellerman one - Rage

also in between books I'm reading the Combat anthology edited by Stephen Coonts, so far I've read the first which is by Coonts "Al-jihad" which was a good read.

Just finished a Robert Crais Joe Pike book and a Lee Childs Jack Reacher book.
Love both characters. As it turns out in each of these particular books (The Watchman, Die Trying respectively) they are involved in protecting a young beautiful woman that they of course fall for. I do get reeeaaaallllly tired of that dynamic to the point where after reading the book jacket I usually put it down if that seems to be the case. If it ever says falls for amazing interesting ugly chick with no rich or connected relatives and an ordinary job I'll get on board. Its more upsetting when its these super in the moment realistic hard guy characters. The Robert Crais Joe Pike book had good plot development and tautness but the girl was particularly unlikeable to me and while the plot development was good it was sort of ordinary and predictable. I love Joe Pike and Elvis Cole though. In the Lee Childs Jack Reacher book at least the girl had a lot more going on than being beautiful and connected. Plus I really liked the insight into the northern militia's as a plot device.

China Clipper by Jamie Dodson

The first book in the series was pretty good. It's sort of targeted at teens and tweens, but the story is pretty good. A little swearing and one semi-adult scene I guess if you're interested in them for your kids. I bought the books as a gift for my mom (she collects autographed books, and the author was doing a signing at a local bookstore). She finished them and thought I'd enjoy them.

Just finished Day After Night by Anita Diamante. I thought The Red Tent was much better.

Now I'm just starting The Map of True Places by Brunonia Barry. I loved The Lace Reader so I'm hoping this one doesn't disappoint.

Trying to read The Given Day by Dennis Lehane, who wrote Shutter Island. It's set in Boston at the end of WW1. I think I'm looking for another Shutter Island and this isn't it. I should give it a chance though.
