December 2017 Reads

Believe it or not, my dogs bother me when I'm reading.  They presume that I should be paying attention to them instead of having my nose in a book!

Dec 76 How to Kill Friends and Implicate People Jay Stringer
77 Beast of Extraordinary Circumstance Ruth Emmie Lang
78 Wonder Valley Ivy Pochoda
79 The Police Are At The Station and They Adrian McKinty
Don't Look Friendly
80 The Rooster Bar John Grisham
81 So Much Blue Percival Everett

What a great way to wrap up the year!  How to Kill Friends and Implicate People is the first time I've read Jay Stringer.  His character, Fergus is a hitman and the action never stops.  I'll be reading more from this author.

The Beast of Extraordinary Circumstance is a modern day fairy tale; it's full of wonder and improbability.  You should read it, you'll be glad you did.

Wonder Valley is a novel alive with empathy for the dispossessed and detailed descriptions of the California landscape. It works its way between the hippy-dippy and the straight-collared.  It's both a family tale and a mystery.

The Police are At The Station and They Don't Look Friendly is the last book in the Sean Duffy series.  I've read them all and recommend them; start with the first one, Cold Cold Ground.

One of the things I love about John Grisham is that he doesn't write the same story over and over; as many of other successful authors do.  The Rooster Bar is a great read; it kept me guessing until the end, which is good.

So Much Blue is about characters that you think you might know; how there lives work and don't work.  It's never quite what you expect but it's a very satisfying read by a great author.
