Murder for Hire.

This is a biography of a dear friend of hubby and I who was one of the most successful undercover Police Officers ever. Most undercover assignments are short to keep the sanity of the officer, but "Jake" was undercover for 20 + years. Great read, I can hardly put it down!

Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

AWESOME book which is a series of letters you read that tells the story.  My book club selection and I was putting off the read, but once I started, I couldn't put it down.  Colin Firth should be the lead male role of the Dawsy from Guernsey!!  Just a wonderful, quick read for those of who enjoy something in the vein of a little romance comingled with the WWII occupation of an island and what happened there.  Just wonderful!!!  Hugs,  Lee

Current book:   A World Made New- Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Author:  Mary Ann Glendon

I tend to read mysteries by women authors so this is not my usual read. I do read everything I find on Eleanor Roosevelt. This book is about who she decided to be- what she decided to do...at a crucial turning point in her life. She was no longer the President's wife (she was then a widow) and she did not have platform she had as First Lady.

On Eleanor Roosevelt.....

A World Made New..... is not light reading. However, for Eleanor fans - it is another possible insight into her personality and what she considered important.

Seychelles... I liked it because of my interest in conflict management. I read it slowly... skipped some areas. I wonder what Eleanor would do/say/write in this political climate today. One of her grandsons has a book titled Too Close to the Sun. I hope I remembered that title correctly. I read that too.

I just recently finished a book called "Sarah's Key".   I highly recommend it.  One of those books that I just could not put down. 

Story of an Amerian woman that moved to France, married a Frenchman, has a daughter and is working for an newspaper geared to Americans living in France.  They are in the process of renovating her husband's grandmother's apartment.  Her assignment was to write about the French police rounding up Jews during WWII.  She becomes interested in a little girl, Sarah, that was Jewish.    Little did she know that her life and Sarah's would become so interlocked.

Harry S. Truman - it's about as thick as an encyclopedia, but so far, really good!

A snowday read....

Joanne Fluke: The Plum Pudding Murder        Totally light reading.... but the recipes are interesting. Fluke writes a series so it is best to read them in order. All have recipes...and the ones I have tried - the results have been tasty.
