Just finished Storm Front by John Sandford, one of his Minnesota police novels. Sandford has a great number of books out which revolve around the Minneapolis police. They are probably primarily aimed at men, but I enjoy them.

Now starting Good Night, Mr. Holmes by Carole Nelson Douglas, the first in a series of books about Irene Adler, "The Woman" from the original Sherlock Holmes mysteries.

Louise, Is that the same author that wrote the Sherlock book about bees.... I think it was called The Language of Bees ?? Enjoyed that one a few years ago.

Michele, I don't think it is the same writer, but will have to investigate. I finished the book I mentioned and went on to Chapel Noir, another in the Irene Adler/Sherlock Holmes series by Carole Nelson Douglas. I'm really enjoying them but will probably need to switch off with a modern novel. The Victorian setting is very well done, but it can get a bit too "period" for me at times, if that makes any sense.

I also read/scanned Cool Couture: Construction Secrets for Runway Style by Kenneth King. He is a costume designer who has created outfits for Elton John, among others. Some of his embellishments are over the top, to put it mildly, but inspiring and fun.

In addition, I got Sandra Betzina Sews for Your Home from the library. I generally hate home dec sewing, but she has some good ideas. Projects for kids include a teepee, a card table playhouse, a puppet theater and a bunk bed "fort." Quite clever and imaginative.

I just finished John Grisham's The Rainmaker, and I thought it was really well written. I would like to read another novel of his and was wondering if anybody could recommend one of them.....Thanks

My goodness, IMHO anything written by Grisham is A-one...You might remember some of his books were adapted into movies; The Client, The Firm, Pelican Brief, and my favorite Runaway Jury. His books are well written and will suck you in quickly unlike some other good authors that drag along through half the book and then hook you. Although only his "Boone" series books you should read in sequence, most of his books are non-sequential, so it doesn't matter in which order you read them. Still you might do a search to see when he wrote them and try to stick to that order...I do that with a lot of authors so I can see how they develop.

Just finished The Tooth of Time by Sue Henry. This is one of a series of mysteries in which the protagonist, Maxie McNabb, is a retiree from Alaska who travels the lower 48 in her Winnebago (solving mysteries along the way, of course). This particular book was set in Taos, New Mexico. I found it well written and quite enjoyable.
