Same story. Man and woman detective working on case, they dislike one another, but solve the case and end up in love. Not only do they solve the case, you know who did it before they do, usually. If you could recommend one that isn't like that, I would appreciate it, and would definitely read it.

I do really like Dennis Lehane though. I've read one of his detective/crime books, but I don't remember which one. I've also read Shutter Island and of course Mystic River.
Try Lee Child's Jack Reacher books. He never falls in love. His earlier books are better than his more recent ones. I believe he also has an early novel out that is not featuring Jack Reacher but is set during WW2. I can't think of the title but that book had me totally hooked.

added: On the other hand, I think that the book set in the second WW was by another author. Can't think of the name but the author is German and sets his books usually in bayou country. It'll come to me. Ah - Greg Iles, Spandau Phoenix.

I am going to try and work my way through the Dark Tower series. I tried once before years and years ago and just couldn't get into it.... I am about a third of the way through the first book and it is more interesting this time around.

Just finshed "Forever Odd" by Dean Koontz. Quite good.

Now I'm one third into "The Queen's Fool" by Philippa Gregory.

I finally finished The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King.

I will start Star Island by Carl Hiaasen today. I need a light hearted story.

Phonelady61,
I'm always astonished by how fast you read. How do you get through books so quickly?
