The Blight Way (Sheriff Bo Tully, #1)The Blight Way by Patrick F. McManus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sheriff Bo Tully gets a call from one of his citizens who he jailed and later did the same to his sons. He wants the sheriff to come out about a dead body draped over one of his fences. Having viewed the corpse through binoculars, he gives a description of said corpse; white, pinstriped suit, one shoe on, one off but covered with a black sock...not the style of the average citizens.

Thus the story begins. It's a ton of fun with some really good lines added to a good mystery.

Dead Center (Andy Carpenter Series, #5)Dead Center by David Rosenfelt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Andy Carpenter, the Paterson, N.J., lawyer whose wealth allows him to work as seldom as he chooses, is recovering from the loss of the love of his life, Laurie Collins, who has moved home to Findlay, Wis., to become the acting chief of police. When Laurie calls Andy for help after arresting 21-year-old Jeremy Davidson for murders that she thinks he didn't commit, Andy can't resist heading off to Findlay with his faithful dog, Tara."

Who should read or listen to this one? People who love a good mystery. People who enjoy humor. People who enjoy the romance between Andy and Laurie. People like ME!

Sex, Murder And A Double Latte (A Sophie Katz Murder Mystery #1)Sex, Murder And A Double Latte by Kyra Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Remember, I've read other of Kyra Davis' books...not in books you don't have to read in order to enjoy!

This series is witty and quick and great fun! Perfect for a cozy read or listen when the weather is icky or you just need a bit of a giggle. In this one we have art and murder and new men but who is the really bad boy? A Russian who is not who he "claims" to be, an artist who's work some people think a 5 year old could do, or a vampire want to be?

I'll never tell, so you better go get a copy of your own!

Men Are Just Happier People
If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.  If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.

When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.  None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
 When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

           A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
            A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.  A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

            A woman has the last word in any argument.
            Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

            A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
            A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.


            A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
            A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
            A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

         Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
            Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

 Ah, children.  A woman knows all about her children.  She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
 A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


A married man should forget his mistakes.  There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
