 To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…


• What are you currently reading? Bone Bed, the latest in the Scarpetta Series, by Patricia Cornwell. The story is moving along at a fast clip and it's always nice to spend time with Kay. Fortunately, at about halfway through, I can reassure everyone that this one isn't too disturbingly gruesome, as some of Kay Scarpetta's cases have been. It's also nice to see Cornwell dealing with Kay as she ages. Our heroine has some believable moments where she worries about how men view her now that she's no longer young, and then she chastises herself for her own superficiality. It's nice to see a human side of the uber accomplished Kay.

• What did you recently finish reading? Another mystery, The Spellmans Strike Again. It was funny, as all in the Spellman series are, but this one had a lot of heart, as well. Rae, with her quirky doggedness and her passion for justice, is quickly becoming my favorite Spellman.

• What do you think you’ll read next? Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos. This looks promising, chick lit of the highest order. Three lives of three very different women -- a perfect housewife, a working mother and a recent transplant from Manhattan -- collide in a suburb and "become entangled in a web of trust, betrayal, love and loss."
