    It's June in Montreal, and Dr. Temperance Brennan, who has left a shaky marriage back home in North Carolina to take on the challenging assignment of Director of Forensic Anthropology for the province of Quebec, looks forward to a relaxing weekend in beautiful Quebec City. First, though, she must stop at a newly uncovered burial site in the heart of the city. The remains are probably old and only of archeological interest, but Tempe must make sure they're not a case for the police. One look at the decomposed and decapitated corpse, stored neatly in plastic bags, tells her she'll spend the weekend in the crime lab.

    Story

    Book was way too detailed oriented on the small things. If you were watching this as a tv show or a movie, it would be ok but as a book, the details were just too involved. I am sure the abridged version would have been much better. Story line was actually good, but too cluttered by all the bla bla bla of the insignificant backround that was talked about.

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Whether it's at home or at work, so much of our lives involves negotiating to get what we want. From negotiating a higher salary, to lowering costs from suppliers, to hammering out a new contract with a major customer, or even deciding where to go on vacation, the only way to consistently arrive at successful conclusions is to master the art of negotiation.

    Autumn has arrived, and the citizens of Pickax find themselves amid a clamor of activity. In addition to the opening of its latest theatrical production, the town is celebrating the dedication of a new bookstore and park built in memory of Pickax's beloved bookshop owner Edd Smith. Columnist Jim Qwilleran, participating in the festivities, is also busy with his latest book project: an account of a uniquely historic guest residence, the Hibbard House.

    Cute story for anyone who likes a little mystery and likes cats. The author has a very good imagination.

    With the same down-to-earth wit that made her entertaining memoir sTORI telling a #1 New York Times best-seller, Tori tells the hilarious and humbling stories of life as a mom in the limelight. From learning to be the kind of parent her own mother never was to revealing what it's like to raise a family while everyone is watching, Mommywood is an irresistible snapshot of celebrity parenthood that you won't get from the paparazzi.

    Amber says: "Perfect Tori!"

    Tori Spelling tries to explain herself just a little too much. She sounded like a spoiled whiny grown up child who can't seem to see beyond herself. Not really worth the read...

    Myron never saw it coming. A surprise visit from an ex-girlfriend is unsettling enough. But Emily Downing's news brings him to his knees. Her son Jeremy is dying and needs a bone-marrow transplant, from a donor who vanished without a trace. Then comes the real shock: the boy is Myron's son, conceived the night before her wedding to another man.

    Richard Delman says: "Myron Bolitar retires. Harlan Coben moves on."

    Harlan Coben knows how to write. This was suspenseful and exciting. Another good one by the author.

    Seventeen-year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban family, headed off to college next year with hopes and dreams. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst. Caught tells the story of a missing girl, the community stunned by her loss, the predator who may have taken her, and the reporter who investigates.

    If you like Harlan Coben books, you will thoroughly enjoy this one. If you have not read him yet, this is as good as any to get started on!

    In this eagerly anticipated memoir, Palin paints an intimate portrait of growing up in the wilds of Alaska; meeting her lifelong love; her decision to enter politics; the importance of faith and family; and the unique joys and trials of life as a high-profile working mother. She also opens up for the first time about the 2008 presidential race, providing a rare, mom's-eye view of high-stakes national politics - from patriots dedicated to "Country First" to slick politicos bent on winning at any cost.

    Mike & Jan Geihsler says: "Needed unabridged"

    Good book. She has a good picture of herself and shares her view with the rest of us. Entertaining and insightful....

  • The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 3

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest"
    Overall

    Stieg Larsson jumps right in where he left off from book 2. He hits the ground running, well maybe a fast walk. The detail and history that is given once again may make you impatient for him to get on with the current dealings of the main charachter, but the details are what make this book so awesome! Really emotional and the ending... Man, I did not expect that!
