    It is midnight on 30th June 1860 and all is quiet in the Kent family house in Road, Wiltshire. The next morning they wake to find that their youngest son has been the victim of an unimaginably gruesome murder. Even worse, the guilty party is surely one of their number - the house was bolted from the inside. As Jack Whicher, the most celebrated detective of his day, arrives to track down the killer, the murder provokes national hysteria. This true story is the original Victorian whodunit.

    Story

    This is not a story as much as it is a history or documentary of the 1860 murder of a young boy, Saville Kent, and the well known and respected Scotland Yard detective, Jonathan Whicher. I will confess, it gets a bit boring at times so if you are looking for something with action, you may want to pass this by. If you are looking for a history lesson of the British police, their words and phrases, and how investigations were handled, you'll enjoy this book.

    As a boy, William Bellman commits one small, cruel act: killing a bird with his slingshot. Little does he know the unforeseen and terrible consequences of the deed, which is soon forgotten amidst the riot of boyhood games. By the time he is grown, with a wife and children of his own, William seems to be a man blessed by fortune - until tragedy strikes and the stranger in black comes. Desperate to save the one precious thing he has left, William enters into a rather strange bargain, with an even stranger partner, to found a decidedly macabre business.

    Bailey Ruth loves to return to earth as an emissary from Heaven's Department of Good Intentions. Problem is, she's a bit of a loose cannon as far as ghosts go - forgetting to remain invisible, alarming earthly creatures - so she's far from the top of department head Wiggins's go-to list for assignments.

She soon learns who she is there to protect and as usual, Bailey Ruth isn't very adept at keeping the precepts, especially the one on not appearing unless it is absolutely necessary. So when Bailey Ruth tries to disappear and finds she can't, she knows that she is stuck on earth and Wiggins has no idea she is there.

    Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich is a rollicking and poignant romantic comedy about a young widow who decides to get in shape...and winds up getting her groove back - and a whole lot more! Holly Brennan used food to comfort herself through her husband's illness and death. Now she's alone at age 32. And she weighs more than she ever has. When fate throws her in the path of Logan Montgomery, personal trainer to pro athletes, and he offers to train her, Holly concludes it must be a sign. Much as she dreads the thought of working out, Holly knows she needs to put on her big girl panties and see if she can sweat out some of her grief.

    When Holly, who is overweight and recently widowed, learns that her plane seat cannot be upgraded to first class, she groans. She hates the tight, compact seats in coach, especially, when she sees the man she will share the next five hours with, spilling into his seat because of her size. She doesn't miss the look on his face either when he sees she is about to sit beside him.

    But during that long flight, Holly and Logan share some conversation and when they depart, Holly has an invitation for personal fitness training lessons with Logan, who not only lives in her town but is also a personal fitness trainer.

    Logan is surprised when Holly calls to set up her first training session, and as time goes on, he is even more surprised at the feelings he is beginning to develop for Holly.

    Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried, and hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live. Often at odds with one another, mother and daughter are forced to stand together against the escalating hysteria of the trials.

    Story

    This story is told by the daughter of one of the first women accused of witchery. Through Sarah Carrier's eyes we see how the family struggled with every day life during these Puritan times and how Sarah and her family dealt with Martha's imprisonment and subsequent death when accused of being a witch.

    Winningham's performance was a bit dry and lacking, even though the story is meant to show how difficult life was during those times.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Story

    Things are just not going well for Sookie, she seems to have her plate full most of the time. First, the vampire king of Las Vegas, Arkansas and Louisiana is in town and causing Eric some problems. To add to Eric's woes, a young woman is found murdered in his yard and it is the same woman Eric just had a drink from.

    Sam is dating a new were, the enforcer for Alcied's Longtooth pack and this were doesn't seem to like Sookie, for reasons unknown.

    Sookie's fairy cousin Claude is also causing Sookie problems, just by being his usual selfish self and Sookie learns there are strange things going on at Claude's strip club.

    Sookie is still worried about her rare and one-of-a-kind magical fairy object and it seems as though someone would like to take it from her, at any cost.

    Fans of Sookie Stackhouse books will not be disappointed. Johanna Parker does an excellent job at the narration, in fact, her portrayal of Sookie is what drew me in to this series.
