    Story

    Er Thom yos'Galan is well aware that Liaden law and custom require him to marry the contract wife his clan chooses for him, and produce an heir for his line. Unfortunately, some three years ago, Er Thom fell in love with a Terran woman, Anne Davis, a professor of linguistics on the world called University. He parted from her, giving her a farewell gift, but unfortunately has not forgotten her, as one is supposed to forget pleasure loves. His refusal to marry as instructed risks creating a scandal.

    When Er Thom breaks ranks even further, and heads off to University to see Anne one last time, he discovers the makings of an even more dangerous scandal--Anne gave birth to a son from their affair, a son she has named Shan yos'Galan, in honor of his father.

    A yos'Galan outside the authority and protection of Clan Korval.

    What follows is an epic family conflict--between Anne and Er Thom, about taking Shan to Liad, and between Er Thom and his mother Petrelia, over whether Anne and her child will be accepted. Caught in the middle is Daav yos'Phelium, Delm of Clan Korval, who loves his foster brother, but respects Petrelia's rights as head of her line.

    Lurking in the background is a danger they don't suspect, Liaden forces (an early manifestation of the Department of the Interior?) outraged by the research Anne and a Liaden linguist, Professor ter'Bana, have done, showing that the Terran, Liaden, and Yxtrang languages have a common root language. These purists are also, of course, outraged by the idea of Terran-Liaden intermarriage, a view in which they are not alone in Liaden society.

    This purists are also, of course, perfectly willing to use Shan as an expendable tool to get what they want.

    This is a nice mix of intrigue, romance, and family drama, and a great look at a younger Er Thom and and a younger Daav.

    Jamie McCoy is the ultimate guy: 30 years old, carefree and professionally successful as the writer of a nationally syndicated humor column called "Guy Stuff". Nine and a half months ago, he spent a week basking on the beach in Eluthera and indulging in a fling with a woman at the resort. Never did he expect to find the unplanned result of that fling - a healthy, wailing baby named Samantha - strapped into a car seat on his back porch, along with a suitcase full of diapers and infant apparel and a note informing Jamie that he's her father.

    Story

    30-year-old Jamie McCoy is living the carefree life of a successful, popular, newspaper columnist, with a very comfortable income, and no real responsibilities.

    At least, until one morning he hears strange, mewing sounds coming from his screen porch at the back of the house. Upon investigating, he finds a tiny baby, some bags and a suitcase, with a note informing him that the baby is his daughter, Samantha.

    Suddenly, Jamie has a major responsibility, and no idea how to cope. An only child with no married friends, he has no prior experience with babies. He calls the local hospital looking for help, and is directed to nurse Allison Winslow, who runs an educational program called The Daddy School.

    Jamie is in for a crash course in infants and responsibility. He's also in for a crash course in Allison Winslow--who in turn is in for a crash course in Jamie McCoy, and in letting other people help her, occasionally.

    It's light, enjoyable, and if it's not too deep, it does feature likable, engaging characters. Jamie may not be prepared to cope with the unexpected results of a vacation fling nine months ago, but he is determined to get it right. Allison is a smart, capable, decent woman who wants to help other people, and is, maybe, ready to get over her resistance to being helped. This is also the start of a series, and the minor characters are good set-ups for their own stories later.

    Enjoyable.

Ever since her beloved granddaddy died and her longtime boyfriend broke up with her, Riley has been withdrawing from life. In an effort to rejoin the living, she signs up for an online dating service and tries to reconnect with her childhood best friend, Jordan James, a reporter at the Tuttle Times.

    Story

    Riley Ellison and Jordan James used to be best friends. They even had a column in their high school newspaper, writing "obituaries" of over used phrases, unwise fashion trends, etc., inspired by Riley's grandfather, a famous obituary writer.

    Then life moved on. They graduated. Their friendship broke up over a guy, Ryan, who became Riley's long-term boyfriend and whom she expected to marry. Riley is 24, and works in the local library as a library assistant. Jordan is a reporter at the local newspaper, the Tuttle Times.

    Then Riley's grandfather commits suicide. Ryan breaks up with her and goes to Colorado, where he has a new girlfriend. The residents of Tuttle Corner feel affection for her, but also pity. She decides to rejoin life. She signs up for an online dating service, and tries to reconnect with Jordan. And thus she discovers that Jordan has just committed suicide. Except the suicide note doesn't sound anything like Jordan. It's not long before Riley, who never accepted that her grandfather really committed suicide, is investigating Jordan's unlikely suicide.

    What follows is a strange adventure for her. Ryan is back in town. She meets an interesting guy, AJ, through the dating service, even though their first date is a disaster. An investigative reporter at the Tuttle Times has his own questions about Jordan's death, and he and Riley team up--even though the reporter, Will Holman, is a very odd character himself.

    It turns out there's an awful lot going on in Tuttle Corner that Riley never suspected. Taco trucks aren't just selling tacos. Something is odd in the police department, and Jordan may have been looking into it. Someone is threatening the head librarian, trying to force him to accept bookmobile trucks that will be fully paid for by the donor, who is willing to be quite violent about it. AJ's background is murkier than he lets on, and he might be connected to the events leading to Jordan's death.

    There's a lot here that seems unlikely, but Riley and her friends are likable, and the story is fun and lively. Dog note: There is a dog, and no, the dog does not die.

    Not much substance, but it's fun.

    Story

    Early one August morning, two families discover their little girls are missing. Calli Clark and Petra Gregory are seven years old, and best friends. Calli, following a family tragedy when she was four, suffers from selective mutism. There's nothing physically wrong, but she hasn't spoken in three years. Petra, her best friend, is adept at being Calli's voice, able to understand and articulate what Calli wants to say.

    And now they are both missing.

    Calli's abusive, alcoholic father, Griff, is supposed to be on a fishing trip with his friend, Roger, but when Roger is finally located, Griff isn't with him.

    Calli's mother, Antonia, and her brother, Ben, as well as Petra's father, Martin Gregory, and the local deputy sheriff, Loris Lewis, who was Antonia's first boyfriend, each get their own alternating chapters, unfolding the story from their viewpoints. Calli's is the only one told in third person, past tense, which is a nice touch.

    What the reader, or listener, knows that the adult characters don't, is that the girls aren't together, and they are both alive. There is no guarantee they will remain so, and much reason to fear they won't. Griff is the prime suspect, and whether or not it's him, there was another little girl who previously disappeared, and was found, eventually, murdered and abused.

    I found the characters compelling, and the story engrossing. There is one scene, that we see, ultimately, from the viewpoints of Antonia, Calli, Martin, and Lewis, in every case stopping at telling us that Calli spoke just one word, and not telling us the word until the fifth telling of it. That was maddening, entirely too much of drawing out that one particular detail to no real narrative purpose, but that was, for me, the only major storytelling failure. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this book.

    Flashbacks further enrich the story, helping us understand how the characters got to this point, and the complex connections among them. Griff is an abusive, alcoholic husband and father, and some of Antonia's choices may be hard to understand for people unfamiliar with how abuse affects the victim's ability to see themselves as even having the right to be treated better. Abused spouses don't leave because their ability to make that decision and act on it has been damaged by the abuse. They feel shame and guilt, too often, instead of the anger that would allow them to get out. (This is aside from the fact that help in getting away from a dangerous spouse is often far less available than those who've never experienced it fondly believe.)

    Overall, a good, rewarding story.

    Recommended.

    Hollywood actress Hope Hadley doesn't think that things can get any worse for her. In the last 24 hours, her boyfriend has broken up with her and her long-running police procedural TV show has been canceled. When a homicide detective shows up at her door the next morning with news that her ex-boyfriend has been murdered, she realizes that her troubles are just beginning. She is shocked - not only to learn of her ex's death, but also to find out that the police consider her to be a suspect.

    Story

    In short order, Hope Hadley wraps up the shooting on the last episode of her long-running, newly-cancelled tv show, The Sassy Sleuth, has her boyfriend of the past year dump her for an actress half her age, and, entirely too early the next morning, is informed by the police that said ex-boyfriend, Trent Harper, has been murdered and she is a suspect.

    She has no alibi for the one-hour time frame within which he was murdered, because she skipped the wrap party.

    When she can't convince police Detective Noble to immediately rule her out a suspect, she concludes she has no alternative but to clear herself by finding the real killer. That this could be dangerous is barely noted in passing.

    What follows is just silly, and not in what appears to be an intentional way. Hope asks obvious questions of obvious suspects, is frustrated and annoyed that everyone she questions quickly becomes hostile, and doesn't as far as I can tell uncover anything the quite competent and intelligent Detective Noble wouldn't have found out on his own, much more efficiently and safely. I stand by this conclusion even though he is presented as being impressed by her different perspective and valuable insight, at the end. It just isn't plausible.

    Light, entertaining, short mystery story, that may annoy the heck out of you if you like your mysteries to be plausible and reasonably intelligent in how the investigation proceeds.

    Not recommended, though I wouldn't run away from it if you have a couple of hours to kill.

    I honestly don't remember if I bought this audiobook, or if I got it free as part of a promotion of some kind. In any case, I'm reviewing it voluntarily.

    Story

    The first thing you need to know is that I don't read horror. I don't read anything really dark. I just don't.

    Except sometimes I do. Usually because someone said, oh, this is good, and I didn't ask enough questions. A bunch of people said this was good.

    They were right.

    It's very, very good.

    It's also every bit as dark as you'd expect from something entitled The Good House, and maybe a bit darker than that. Lots of really bad stuff happens. And I kept listening to the audiobook, all the way to the end, because it was worth it.

    Angela Toussaint Hill has returned, with her son Corey, to the Good House, the house she inherited from her grandmother, Marie Toussaint, for their annual summer visit, in the Pacific Northwest town of Sacajawea. Her ex-husband, Corey's father, shows up unexpectedly, but things are going better than she expected, as they head into the Fourth of July and the party Angie is throwing.

    The party starts well. It doesn't end well.

    Marie Toussaint was a vodou priestess, and in the 1920s, she saved a girl from demonic possession and, in the process, angered the powers. Her family is cursed, and with Marie gone, her family is unprotected--unless Angie can figure out how to fix things.

    Angie isn't even aware of the problem.

    The story alternates between the summer 2001 events surrounding the Fourth of July party, Corey's unguided curiosity, and the uncertain relationship between Angela and her ex, Tariq, and culminating in tragedy, and the events of 2003, when Angie returns to Sacajawea, hoping to make some decisions about the house, and deal with her grief.

    The characters are absolutely compelling. The story is twisty, dark, and creepy, and Angie has a lot of issues to work through, not just the vodou curse on her family that has cost her everything important in her life. Due builds her story, the family, and the town with detail and atmosphere, and simply made it impossible for me to stop reading.

    Important note for some readers (including me): The dog does not die. For some of us, this really is a critical point.

    Highly recommended.

    DI Nikki Galena's father has died, leaving behind a mystery. His last request to her was to "Find Eve."

    Nikki has no idea who Eve is.

    Yet when she should be dealing with her father's death, and deciding what to do about the mysterious Eve, she has mysteries to deal with at work. A minor-league drug dealer has been fished out of a shaft in the ground at an abandoned World War II airfield, still alive, but only barely. Another drug dealer has simply disappeared, and his sister, with no illusions about her brother but great affection because they survived a difficult childhood together, is determined to find him. The current owner of the airfield is found dead, clearly murdered, but no one knows who wanted him dead.

    And Detective Sergeant Joseph Easter's long-estranged daughter Tamsin has come for a visit. They are attempting to mend their relationship.

    It seems worth mentioning that all of this turns out to be really small beer beside what they're going to find when they start working these seemingly unrelated cases.

    This is, as is typical with Ellis, this is a good, interesting mystery with good, interesting characters. Galena, Easter, and the rest of their team continue to grow and develop, and are well worth spending the time with.

    Kat Harper has moved home to Cherry Hills, Washington, and is settling in happily, until she finds her neighbor, Mrs. Tinsdale, murdered. The police detective who turns up to lead the investigation is childhood friend Andrew, who'll be investigating his first murder.

    Except, of course, Kat has to investigate, too. Mrs. Tinsdale's cat, Matilda, with no one else to give her a home, moves in with her, and she gets involved with the rescue group Matty came from, and which Mrs. Tinsdale was treasurer for. This puts her in contact with all of the tiny number of people who could even conceivably had any motive to kill the friendly, kindly, older woman.

    I like the characters. They're not very deep or complex, but they are likable. Kat also doesn't ignore all common sense and put herself in obvious and predictable danger, which is a plus. Yet it seemed a rather slight story, even for its short length. Enjoyable, but not something that will linger in your mind after you're done reading it.

    In addition to that, Paige Sleuth a.k.a. Marla Bradeen reads the audiobook herself, which was perhaps not wise. She's not a bad reader, but she is merely reading aloud. She reminded me more than anything of me and my cousins reading to each other in bed at night, sharing a book in our shared bedroom. Warm memories, but there are better readers out there.

    Although eugenics is now widely discredited, some groups and individuals claim a new scientific basis for old racist assumptions. Pondering the continuing influence of racist research and thought, despite all evidence to the contrary, Robert Wald Sussman explains why - when it comes to race - too many people still mistake bigotry for science.

    Elisabeth Carey says: "An important look at race, genetics, & politics"
    "An important look at race, genetics, & politics"
    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The belief in race as an objective, biological reality has been very strong, pervasive, and significant in much of public policy. Yet scientists say it is simply not real. There is neither very much genetic variability in humans compared to other species, even our closest relatives, nor is it distributed in humans in anything like the consistent patterns that, in other species, define the biological concept of races.

    Humans are all one species, with no subspecies, no biological races.

    Yet the idea is powerful and persistent. Robert Wald Sussman lays out the history of the idea of races, and early explanations for differences. He works through the ideas of pre-Adamites (separate, earlier creations of non-white humans, also called polygenesis), and degeration (the idea that humans are all descendants of Adam, but non-whites are degenerated forms, also called monogenesis.)

    Monogenesis at least left open the possibility that differences might be environmental, and perhaps be overcome, but that was often an inconvenient, and thus unpopular, idea.

    He also lays out the completely unscientific nature of these ideas. Humans are all descended from the same source, and as noted above, there's very little genetic variation in humans compared to other species. (A friend involved with English shepherds and responsible breeding commented that, by dog breeding standards, humans have a terrifying COI, i.e., coefficient of inbreeding.)

    Sussman describes the intertwined effects of the pseudo-scientific theories of racial origins and racial inferiority, and the political theories and policies that grew from them--including the rise of the eugenics movement in the US and Germany. Influences flowed back and forth between Germany and the US, getting worse and worse.

    At the same time, the rise of real genetic science, and the development of cultural anthropology, also began to undermine those theories.

    It's a fascinating and alarming account, and the racial theories are still with us today, affecting today's policies on immigration, education, health care, and the social safety net. It's well written, read well by the narrator, and tremendously informative.

    Story

    Kepler is a ghost, a being who, when he was beaten to death in a filthy alley, with his dying impulse reached out to touch his killer's ankle--and found himself looking down at his own dead body, out of his killer's eyes.

    That was few centuries back, and Kepler can hop from body to body when ever he needs or wants to. He doesn't intend harm to his hosts, and even comes to cherish them.

    Then one of his hosts is brutally assassinated.

    The killer wanted Kepler dead, but killed his host, Josephine Cebula, even after realizing Kepler had jumped. Why? He needs to find the truth, and avenge Josephine.

    What follows is a terrifying chase across Europe and America. There are other ghosts, some who have been friends of Kepler's, or, arguably, business associates. Others are definitely not friends.

    At least one is perhaps insane, perhaps just evil, but either way a threat to other ghosts. Because this ghost has committed multiple mass murders over decades, if not longer, an organization of what might be called ordinary humans, determined to wipe out the ghosts. The killer ghost, dubbed Galileo, has its own unknown plans.

    Kepler tells his story out of order, moving forward from the death of Josephine, while also jumping backwards to earlier formative or relevant experiences. In the end, we know everything that Kepler knows, but we don't know it all in the same order. Sometimes this is challenging to follow.

    It's not a perfect book, but it held my interest and attention

    Story

    Frannie Shoemaker and her friends and family are once again at a campground in Iowa, this time practicing the hobby of geocaching. Poking around in the woods looking for hidden caches naturally offers opportunities for Frannie's secondary--or perhaps primary--hobby of finding bodies.

    This time she doesn't find a body; just a shoe. Because there's no foot in the shoe, or anywhere nearby, it strikes her and her friends as odd, but completely harmless. Unfortunately, not much later, the police do find a dead body quite nearby. Frannie and Larry tell the police about the shoe, but since the body isn't missing a shoe, and the shoe is gone by the time Frannie tells them about it and they look for it, all this does is call them to the attention of the police.

    The police do find a metal tag near the body, and it turns out to be a tag from a geocaching "trackable," an item hidden in the cache that might have special instructions. Does this mean anything? Will they find out what it means?

    Over the next few days, continuing their geocaching and also volunteering in the campground's fundraising events, Frannie, Larry, JaneAnne, Mickey, Nancy, and husband, are on the scene for a confrontation in a diner, a shooting in the cemetery, and a strange accident where the organizer of the campground's fundraising events perhaps trips, or perhaps is pushed, into a dangerous but fortunately non-fatal fall. Meanwhile, another couple they've gotten friendly with at the campground discovers that the land they thought they bought in the area two years ago, was never sold. It still belongs to its original owner--or did. That owner was that dead body found near where Frannie and Nancy were geocaching, when they found the vanishing shoe.

    There are a lot of local issues and grudges, and a wealth of suspects. Unfortunately, Frannie and her friends, and also their new friends just met at the campground, are among those suspects. The sheriff isn't hostile, but geocaching is new and strange to him, and Frannie in particular is near everything that happens.

    It's a fun, light mystery, and a visit with old friends.
