Gina, I am not sure but it looks like part of your post was cut off.  I  have read about Chua in a Time magazine piece when her first book came out and some people were angry with her at that time.  There are more positive comments on Amazon than negative ones regarding this last book, but the 1 star reviews are funny!    Actually one star reviews on many books are funny.  I remember one on a Latin grammar book, Latin for Dummies.   It was to the effect that Latin is not for dummies and if you are a dummy work on learning you native tongue.  It was said much funnier than how I am giving you the gist of it.  I still smile when I think of the comment.

Hi, everybody!



I am reading "Don't Go" by Lisa Scottoline. One of her best mysteries, IMHO

I just started "Death of a Dowager" by Joanna Campbell Slan last night.  I've never read anything by her, so far its good.

This has certainly been quite a winter so far, with more to come.  But as bad as it has been in Michigan, I know it has been worse in other places.  I hope all of you are keeping safe and warm.



I just finished Haunted Ground by Erin Hart.  It is a modern Irish mystery based around the discovery of a "bog body" - a well preserved corpse discovered in a peat bog.  It was a little slow at first, but when I got past that I couldn't put it down.  I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.



Next up is The Feast of Love by Charles Baxter.  According to the bookjacket, it is "a reimagined Midsummer Night's Dream, mean and women speak of and desire their ideal mates; parents seek out their lost children; adult children try to come to terms with their own parents and, in some cases, find new ones."  This is a change of pace for me. I hope Ilike it.

I read The Yard a few weeks ago, and I agree.  Definitely a bit gruesome, but fascinating, especially the forensic bits.

I just finished "The Yard" by Alex Grecian.  Its a good read, however, there are some gruesome passages.  It does give you a sense of 1889 London.
