Sparklin Jewels that was Awesome. Have you read any of David Baldacci's? I drive at least 2 hrs/day & 6 hrs round trip on weekends, so I listen to a lot of books on CD. Also read a lot. Have read a few of those you mentioned & will try some of your other 2s. Thanks.

Great job!


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

I've enjoyed the Sue Grafton books I've read so far. But not in order. They're still good. Hoping I can get some on audio CD's.

I just finsihed "The Laird Who Loved Me" by Karen Hawkins and I give it a 6*

It was great historical romance between Laird Alexander McLean and Caitlyn Hurst - there were lots of goings on and it had some funny bits in it where I laughed out loud at the antics these 2 goaded each other into. It is the last book in a series about the McLean siblins - who when they get angry cause very bad weather.

A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton 4 stars

I have heard so much about these stories that I thought to start at the beginning. I really enjoyed the story and it was complex enough to to entertain me. Would any one like to suggest some of the best ones?

P.S. Did anyone see the Jeopardy show in which Sue Grafton's books were the category? That was a lot of fun.

"Whiplash" by Catherine Coulter ***.5

Another action-mystery featuring FBI agents Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock. Culovort, a critical drug used in chemotherapy for colon cancer patients is suddenly in short supply - production has halted and the drug manufacturer's explanation of production line problems sounds fishy to some. Private Investigator Erin Pulaski is hired by a patient's family to prove that it is deliberate market manipulation on the part of Shuffer Hartwin pharmaceuticals. Meanwhile Savich and Sherlock are investigating ghostly apparitions appearing to a US senator, and a top foreign Shiffer Hartwin 'enforcer' has been found murdered behind the company's US headquarters. As the story unfolds, the plots begin to merge (and thicken) to a complex, but satisfying, conclusion.

23) Strange Bedpersons by Jennifer Cruise 3 stars

Tess Newhart is free-thinking and anti-establishment; Nick Jamieson is a Republican lawyer. Naturally (it is a romance novel) they are perfect for each other - if they can just overcome a few obstacles. She'll pretend to be his fiance for a weekend so he can make partner in the firm ...

the sea of monsters- audio- by rick riordan- 3 stars

13-year-old Percy is just finishing up his school year and is looking forward to another great summer at Camp Half-Blood with all the other demigods. But even before school ends, things start happening, and soon Percy is at camp along with Tyson, a homeless kid adopted by Percy's school. At camp, Percy not only discovers that Tyson is a Cyclops and a son of Poseidon, which makes him Percy's half-brother, but also that the camp is in trouble. There's a quest to rescue Percy's friend, Grover the satyr, and to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The plot zips along with plenty of action; lots of mythological monsters, titans, and gods; and a leavening of humor. Jesse Bernstein does a good job of giving Percy a youthful voice in this first-person narrative, while at the same time creating appropriate voices for the other characters. Listeners who have not read or listened to the first book in the projected trilogy will want to do so before the next installment is published.–

The Lightning Thief- Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan- audio- 3 stara

Amazon.com Review
Book Description
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.


Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.


With cover art from the major motion picture, this first installment of Rick Riordan's best-selling series is a non-stop thrill-ride and a classic of mythic proportions.

The Horse Goddess by Morgan Llywelyn 6 stars fantasy
Excellent prtrayal of the beginnings of the Celtic gods and godesses

The Heights of Zervos by Colin Forbes 3.5 stars action/adventure
This one was hard to rate. An interesting plot and good characters but authors style was really irritating. Not just run on sentences but run on paragraphs with POV changing mid-paragraph. Currently reading another book by the author which shows amazing improvement.

22) To Kill a Warlock, an Urban Fantasy by H.P. Mallory 3 stars

Dulcie O'Neil is a fairie, but not the Disneyfied version - she's a Regulator (think cop) in the paranormal word. Now she's caught up in a series of gruesome murders and working with a hunky mysterious guy. There are vampires, elves, demons, and more - also some love interests and a bit of shady S&M (Dulcie doesn't go for that)

Porkchop, I love Jeffrey Deaver & have that on my list to read.

Reniesparkin, my friend lent me that Follett book but I won't get to it for months as I have so much to read before that. His "Pillars of the Earth" and the sequel, "World without End" were both excellent.

I'm about to finish "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers" by Maria Augusta Trapp. I give it 3.5 stars. Although it's very interesting to read the true story of Maria from "The Sound of Music," I feel that a lot of details have been left out and left me wanting more.

6* The Fall of Giants by Ken Follett

This epic novel, the first of a trilogy, follows the lives of 5 families during the time of World War 1, in the US, Wales, Britain, Russia and Germany, from coal mines to palaces, the rich and the poor. The story is rich in historical detail, and I even learned a few things I had not known about before from that period in history; for example, I did not know that the women's rights movement was also active in Britain around the same time that was starting here in the U.S, and that women were fighting for the right to vote there as well.

It was fascinating to read of the events that led up to the war, and how the war affected people all over the world, and how the stage was set for the 2nd World War.

There is a large cast of characters, but in the beginning of the book there a list of the characters by country, and which ones are fictional and which ones were real people, which was very helpful, but the story flowed so well that it was not hard at all to keep track of all the stories. I am looking forward to the next book of the series, to see where it takes the lives of the characters and their children.

Jesus by Paul Johnson. This biography of the man and Lord was extremely well written and interesting. And although I have finished it, I will be returning to it for more in depth study. I give it 6 stars.

Recently looked at a Joanna Fluke mystery in the library, JerseyGirl318. She's on my list of possible reads coming up. Sounds like fun.

Edge by Jeffrey Deaver *****

Corte is a senior federal protection officer known as a "shepherd". It is his job to keep the Kessler family alive while the dreaded killer, Henry Loving, has them targetted. He uses game theory to try to out-maneuver his opponent. Corte must ultimately choose between protecting his charges and exposing them to a ruthless killer in the name of long-awaited revenge.

This is a suspenseful tale with many twists and turns and the reader is never sure of who the real bad guy is til the very end.

Secret Life of a Vampire (Love at Stake, Book 6) by Kerrelyn Sparks

6 stars - As I have said before, I LOVE this series!!

A typical bachelor party is all about beers and beautiful women. A vampire bachelor party is no different -- except the men are drinking Blissky (whiskey-flavored synthetic blood). And no one can throw a party quite like Jack, the illegitimate son of the legendary Casanova. But when the party gets out of hand and the cops show up, Jack has some explaining to do . . . if only he wasn't struck speechless by the beauty of Officer Lara Boucher.

Lara is sure there's something more than a bachelor party going on. What is Jack hiding? And why is he so interested in the recent disappearance of young women all over town? Her investigation uncovers more than she wants to know, especially about this modern-day Casanova. But if she's ever to make detective, she'll need to expose all his secrets . . . if only her heart wasn't on the line.

Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman *5 1/2*
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
A potentially life-changing book! At 48 the author sold her possessions and began her nomadic life. From the cover summary, "Rita's example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults." So much more than amazing travelogue.

21) The Fiery Cross, by Diana Gabaldon 5 stars

Whew - I read it on my Kindle, but in print it's nearly 1000 pages. Continuing the time-travel love and adventure story of Claire from the 1960's Highlander husband, Jamie. They're in pre-Revolutionary War North Carolina. With their daughter Brianna and her husband Roger, they are swept up into dangerous situations again and again.

"The Greek Villa" by Judith Gould **

Not clearly labeled at the library as a 'romance' novel, but turned out to be a classic bodice-ripper: all major characters were beautiful, the featured men were rich, the plot totally improbable (the string of 'coincidences' was beyond belief), and the only time the author got beyond a superficial examination of emotions was during the page-long sex scenes (and there were plenty of those - varied partners, no protection, and no one the least concerned with STD or pregnancy). Leave it on the shelf where it belongs.

Hi peoples. I'm a newbie on this team, but had to join in on the fun. I love who-dunnits.

Anything by Lee Child--I just finished reading, One Shot.

Have recently become a fan of Robert Crais. Loved The Forgotten Man, and The Sentry.

Sue Grafton's alphabet series are intriguing and fun. I loved her explanation for writing mysteries. She thought of so many good ways to do in her ex-husband, she couldn't let all those good ideas go to waste. emoticon

I've always been intrigued by Dean Koontz and just finished his, What the Night Knows. His cover has some black birds flying in front of the moon. It freaked me out when I took the garbage out to the curb and on my way back in the house, a whole bunch of black birds flew in front of the moon and were landing in my trees. Yikes. I moved rather quickly into the house. Whew!

There's a brand new book out by a fairly new author: Daniel Palmer. The book is called, Delirious, and it's got me scratching my head and wondering what the heck is going on. I highly recommend this one to any mystery fans.

Patricia Cornwell's 'Port Mortuary' is another good one in her Scarpetta novels.

And for a change of pace: 'Seven Sisters, The Voyage,' by Carolyn Hart Bennett. A riveting true story of new converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) making their voyage from England to the United States and on to Utah. Not for everyone, but I felt like I was right there aboard ship with them.

I've got a John Sandford 'Prey' book in there waiting next in line.

Thanks for allowing me the time to express my views.

phantom prey by john sandford- 3 stars

From Publishers Weekly
In bestseller Sandford's solid 18th Prey novel (after Invisible Prey), Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agent Lucas Davenport, who's received numerous promotions in the course of the series, ought to be taking the desk aspects of his job more seriously. But the man remains more comfortable working a stakeout, interviewing suspects and taking down bad guys than he is filling out personnel evaluation forms on his staff—which explains why he's still getting shot at, peeping at a cocaine dealer's wife hoping for a glimpse of her husband and, at his wife's behest, looking into the unsolved kidnapping and presumed murder of a wealthy young woman into the goth scene. It becomes clear that a serial killer is targeting goths as well as anyone, including Lucas, who gets in the way. While some pretty murky psychology encumbers the plot, Sandford delivers the kind of riveting action that keeps thriller fans turning the pages.

The Good Neighbor by William Kowalski

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

From the Goodreads.com summary:

""When Colt and Francie Hart stumble upon an empty 150-year-old house during a weekend drive in the country, they each fall in love with it and want to buy it - for entirely different reasons. For Colt, the house will become a trophy representing his enormous success at trading stocks. For Francie, a blocked poet, the house seems to whisper hints for reawakening her creativity." "Picking up the house for a song, the couple begins the transition from city dwelling to country life and find for the first time in too long that they have something to work on together. Yet the more the Harts learn about the house, its history, and its previous inhabitants, the more it drives them apart."
