**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
It is finally happening! A week with NO doctor appointments and some extra reading and blogging time. I read and reviewed THREE BOOKS, and actually enjoyed some time on the computer. My hand seems almost back to normal…I don’t want to speak too soon, though. Also, I’m still waiting for my surgery, which might not be scheduled for a couple of months.
Coffee is back on the menu for me, but morning only. So let’s grab another cup and take a peek at my week.
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
One book came in my mailbox! I also downloaded an e-book.
The Kennedy Heirs, by J. Randy Taraborrelli
A unique burden was inherited by the children of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his celebrated siblings, Senators Robert and Ted Kennedy. Raised in a world of enormous privilege against the backdrop of American history, this third generation of Kennedys often veered between towering accomplishment and devastating defeat. In his revelatory new book, acclaimed Kennedy historian J. Randy Taraborrelli draws back the curtain on the next generation of America’s most famous family.
Careful What You Wish For, by Hallie Ephron
Currently Reading: The Comforts of Home, by Susan Hill
A book that has been languishing on my shelves since November 2018:
Susan Hill—the Man Booker Prize nominee and winner of the Whitbread, Somerset Maugham, and John Llewellyn Rhys awards—returns with a hair-raising new novel, the ninth book in one of the most acclaimed mystery series of our time. Featuring the enigmatic and brooding chief police inspector Simon Serrailler, this intricate and pulse-pounding series follows a collection of grisly crimes plaguing the city of Lafferton—and The Comforts of Home is the most chilling and unputdownable installment yet.In this gripping new thriller, Simon, eager to be back at work after recovering from a near-fatal injury, takes on a cold-case review for the Lafferton police about a girl who disappeared some years before. Meanwhile, his family adjusts to changes of its own; namely his sister’s marriage to Chief Constable Kieron Bright. But when events take an unfavorable turn for the Chief Constable and an arsonist goes on a deadly rampage in Lafferton, Simon’s personal and professional lives intertwine in more complex and devastating ways than ever before.In the tradition of the fabulous mysteries of Ruth Rendell and P.D. James, The Comforts of Home is Susan Hill’s best work yet—a heart-pounding new addition to a highly-applauded and “elegant†? (The New York Times) series.
That was my week. What did yours look like? I am sharing a favorite cocktail and soup from days gone by: A margarita with Tortilla Soup:
