    America's favorite bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum, is back in her twelfth best seller and sure to win more fans than ever before. Trenton, New Jersey's premier troublemaker is once again struggling with her tangled love life, her chaotic family, and her gift for destroying every car she drives. Not to mention her attempts to bring in the sometimes scary bail jumpers of Trenton and the sudden appearance of a mysterious female stalker, who turns out to have a close connection to Ranger.

    Story

    Lorelei King IS Stephanie Plum. Her voices run true to each of the characters, which are nicely drawn by Evanovich. I can relate to Plum, her self-doubt, her neuroses - in other words, she's not superwoman, she's just another woman with issues, who happens to have the hots for two very hot men, a grandmother who should have her own TV show, a father who has retreated into his own tiny bubble to protect himself from the strange women in his life, a mother who believes pineapple upside-down cake cures everything. Every character in these stories is memorable, even those with supporting roles. I can hardly wait for the next Plum novel to come out!

    Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire mysteries are critically acclaimed. Longmire's third outing takes him from Wyoming to Philadelphia to investigate a brutal assault on his daughter, Cady. Walt believes her ex-boyfriend is behind the crime and searches him out. But when he turns up dead, Walt is back to square one.

    Story

    I love the easygoing style of Walt Longmire, a small-town Wyoming sheriff who approaches problems methodically, with humor, and with heart. He is a laconic, slow-moving guy who approaches each case individually and does not easily give up when the going becomes difficult. His sidekick Henry, often referred to as "The Cheyenne Nation" is one of my favorite characters in fiction - almost, but not quite, the stereotypical stoic, wise Indian, with a superb sense of the absurd. The two men together are larger than the sum of each of them. I CARE about what happens to these two, and long after I've read the book, they stay in my mind. For me, that is the hallmark of an excellent read.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"

    Story

    I first discovered Harry Dresden on TV - now that I've heard the book, I must say they did a decent job, but the TV show can't compare to James Marsters' narration of Harry Dresden nail-biters. I love the thought of "things" living right along side us, that we can't see, (It would also explain a LOT of unsolved mysteries) and that there is a special department of law enforcement which deals with these "things" when they break the rules. Butcher's characters, even the nasty ones, are nicely drawn, right down to Harry's sometimes stupid ways of thinking. If you like dark urban fantasy, you'll love Harry Dresden.

    The picturesque Cotwsold village of Winter Parva has decided to warm the post-Christmas season by roasting a pig in the town square. Agatha, always one for a good roasting, organizes an outing to enjoy the merriment. But as the rotary spit is placed over a bed of fiery charcoals and the pig is carried toward its final resting place, Agatha realizes that things are not as they seem... Stop!" she screams suddenly. The "pig," in fact, is Gary Beech, a policeman not exactly beloved by the good people of the village. Although Agatha has every intention of leaving matters to the police....

    Story

    Agatha Raisin is definitely human. She can be petty, crabby, selfish - in other words, just like the rest of us. She is not a superhero in any sense of the word. Beaton writes with wry humor and spins an engaging yarn. I've read thousands of mysteries and thrillers, and I must admit, this story has a unique way of disposing of a body. If you enjoy British humor, you'll enjoy this one.
