    Dixie Hemingway is a pet sitter for some of Florida's most pampered pets. But when she happens upon a man drowned in a cat's water bowl, Dixie's sleuthing powers from her time as a deputy sheriff return full-force. And as more bodies keep turning up, she'd better find out whodunit.

    When I first saw the cutesy title I wasn't too sure if I was making the correct choice. Since I have loved mystery stories beginning with Nancy Drew that are solved by women I continued with my purchase. "Dixie Hemingway" is one heck of a crime solver. I cannot wait for future books. I am hooked. Oh, and despite the cute title, it's a rather dark mystery at times.

    In 1993 Greg Mortenson was the exhausted survivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2, an American climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram Himalaya. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time: Greg Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.

    Karl says: "An education and inspiration"
    "Inspirational"
    Overall

    I heard about this book on Yahoo. Greg Mortensen's story is nothing short of inspirational. I read it just after I finished "The Secret," which he apparently has woven into every part of his being. I have a more profound understanding about the people and their conditions in Pakistan and Afghanistan. His life work and story have provided the motivation I need to enter a new chapter in my own life.
