Book List so far this year

Since it is the end of March and it is unlikely I will have time to finish the current book and start another one, I'm calling this my first quarter book list. Last year, Ms. Lemonade requested that I review the books so most of these have a little blurb about if I liked them or not.

Tippy Toe Murder Leslie Meier Jan


Too Many Crooks Tamara Myers Jan Good book. Quick read. Interested to read more


Mom, Apple Pie and Murder Nancy Pickens Jan Boring. Several short stories. A few were good and made me want to look up the author but most I just
couldn't wait to finish


Star spangled Murder Leslie Meier Jan


High Heels and Homocide Kasey Michaels Jan This started off slow but wound up nicely and I'm looking forward to more


Crime Seen Victoria Laurie Jan Best VL book yet. Abby and Dutch weren't fighting the whole book and it was less creepy


Blue Blood Susan McBride Jan Took longer that I would have liked to read but it was decent. Read out of order but other than her relationship, I couldn't tell.


Just Plain Pickled Tamar Myers Jan Took a little to get into but it is quite funny once it starts


3 willows Ann Brashares Jan Continuation of the Sisterhood


Drop Dead Blond Nancy Martin Jan Anthalogy Well done books from good authors


Nothing to Fear but Ferrets Linda Johnston Jan Kendra Ballantyne mystery


Fine Feathered Death Linda Johnston Feb Much easier to get through than ferrets


Meow for Murder Linda Jonhston Feb More development of the story awfully predictable


Mail order murder Leslie Meyer Feb First book, many contradictions to future character development


A crazy little thing called death Nancy Martin Feb Not the best Blackbird book, a little crazy premise


Bubbles a Blaze Sarah Strohmeyer Feb Bubbles is quite fun.


Bubbles All the Way Sarah Strohmeyer Feb Good until the end, then it just got strange


Nursery Crimes Ayelet Waldman Feb Meh, decent story, bad characters


Murder of a Smart Cookie Denise Swanson Feb Totally out of order. Need to read the rest of the series to get a better handle on where things stand


Murder of a real Bad Boy Denise Swanson Feb Follows right after Cookie. Starting to make some sense


Death Perception Victoria Laurie Mar Good whodunit but a little predictable


Don of the Dead Casey Daniels March Slow to start but a solid base to an interesting series


The Chick and the Dead Casey Daniels March Further charcter development, she seems to be getting in to her role as Gifted


Are you there Vodka Chelsea Handler March Way Funnier than expected. LOLed in many parts


Plum spooky Janet Evanovich March JE. Laughed so hard at parts, I woke up Lizzie. Super quick read


Nip, Tuck Dead Lori Avocato Mar Took some getting into but then was fairly fast. Main character was a little annoying and the story was Predictable!


White Witch,Black Curse Kim Harrison Mar Resolved the mystery at the end of the last book. 500 pages, so took a little while to read


On What Grounds Cleo Coyle Mar Quick read, finally first in a series. Interested in further developments


Killer Cocktail Sheryl Anderson Mar Second in a series. Seems to really need the other book to make sense. Main characters whines about guy too much


Muder with Peacocks Donna Andrews Mar Currently reading, no comment yet

Wow! I thought my 3 books in '09 was pretty good.

I'm glad you liked "Are you there Vodka". Are you planning to come to the book club? I laughed my butt off all the way to Missouri listening to that book on CD.
