Highway Robbery (Owen Allison Mysteries) - book cover picture

I have no idea why I picked up this book in the first place--I found it lurking in my TBR pile so I gave it a chance. I'm very glad I did.

The good:
The way the hero uses engineering to solve the mystery.
The political details were realistic and infuriating.

The bad:
Can't really find anything.

The excellent:
The characterizations. The characters were a lot more three-dimensional and emotionally complex than I'd have expected from a simple mystery novel.

The verdict:
I'll be looking for the rest of John Billheimer's books, and this time they won't be sitting in my TBR pile forever.

Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 - book cover picture

This book is a great view inside of an atypical Apollo mission: a near catastrophe in space with few options for the crew and death a real possibility. Death not only of the 3 astronauts but of the entire United States space program. The heroes in this book are many including the astronauts, the men at mission control and the administrators at NASA who virtually saved the American space program. A mission in which NASA had literally years to plan had to be completely revised including the engine firings, trajectory and minute to minute time-lines. A great effort by the controllers indeed. The events reflected on in the movie "Apollo 13" are here in much greater detail along with many more facts that were not touched on in the movie. The only complaint was that the book was written in the third person which seemed to de-personalize the story from Lovell's perspective. This was a very enjoyable read however and is highly recommended

Naked in Death (In Death (Paperback)) - book cover picture

I have been a fan of Nora Roberts for some time, and was running out of books to read when I found her J.D. Robb series. I stayed up half the night finishing "Naked In Death." This book is engrossing and unique. One of the best things about this book is how she blends life in a futuristic society seamlessly into the plot, where most futuristic books overwhelm the plot by focusing too heavily on the hi-tech stuff. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.NOTE TO READER IN WASHINGTON STATE: Nora Roberts started writing for Silouhette NOT Harlequin.

Pediatric Cardiology for Practitioners (4th Edition) - book cover picture

In concise and clear language, Prof. Park explains how a
medical practitioner can diagnose alsmost any known
cardiac anomaly in a child.Having a scientific but no medical background myself,
I found it very readable. Some knowledge of cardiac
anatomy and electrocardiography are a prerequisite.What is especially good is Prof. Parks comprehensive
approach to the diagnosis: all posible pathologies are
listed and when a particular observation
is possible in normal patients, he doesn't forget to point
this out too.I have only read the 2nd edition of the book (1988), so
I cannot vouch whether the latest (4th) is up to date
on recent advances in the field, be it in pacemaking
capabilities or teratogenic discoveries.

A Wedding Bouquet (Super Regency, Signet) - book cover picture

I had to write a review because I disagree with the previous reviewer. The two stories she chose to belittle are my two favorites in the anthology. I can't imagine why she had any trouble reading "Something Old" by Patricia Oliver. Sure, most of us have read many stories in which the heroine is a young girl who has a painful experience at at ton gathering. But this time the girl has the extreme bad luck to fall in love at first sight with a cad who doesn't even notice! Ten years later they meet again. Is this a second chance at love? "And a Six Pence for Her Shoe" by Anne Barbour is a wonderful love story. The heroine waits for her fiance to return from war. She quarreled with him just before he left. Will he give her a chance to prove her love is true? The other stories were fine, but I found them less memorable. Read this anthology and see if you don't agree!

Holding the Man - book cover picture

What can I say of this book? I could read it, read it, read it, etc. I've never read a book about any relationship that left me so attached, drained, empty feeling. In a way hoping I could ever be part of such an affair. This is really a powerful book. How can you ever forget it's story and beautiful characters. Such a shame that I can never meet them. Everybody can only hope for a partnership so blessed.

Johnny Harris you are wonderfull!

Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
One Summer - book cover picture

It makes you grip the end of your seat with suspence. The romantic story is the best you could ever read, but I do have some points to make: 1)The way Rachel believed in Johnnys innocence is unexplainable even if he was such a good boy inside, he could have committed murder, They found his semen in her body, for God's sake. 2)As for the charecters, they were realistic. Johnny was totally wonderfull (the man of every womans dream),tender,loving,and sexy.I like the contrast in her character. She's so cute in everyway, but inside lies an inner strength that's worth admiring.Glenda's character was so intriguing,it gave us all the surprise of our lives in the end.

Mississippi: The Blues Today! - book cover picture

This book is fascinating for any blues or history lover. My husband bought it--we both read it and have passed it on--it is on it's way to a different state with a friend and we are buying another copy which we will also share with friends and family. Really makes one understand and appreciate REAL blues and what it has done to influence all kinds of music through the years. Highly recommend especially for music and history teachers as well as musicians.
