Happy Monday!


Happy Monday!

Monday morning quickie updates.....

I read Sheila Connolly's mystery Let's Play Dead. It is a very subdued style of mystery, about a museum director in Philadelphia. Not a lot of action, no real romance to speak of, and lots of mundane details about daily operations at a museum. Even though it was pretty dry reading, I still liked it. The mystery itself is the star of the show, and Connolly does a good job with the plotline. Also, the cover is simply adorable! Grade: B

I finally got to read Hannah Howell's latest addition to the Wherlocke series, If He's Dangerous. What a great story! I am totally digging the paranormally-enhanced Wherlocke family. They are bad-ass, mysterious and oh so sexy. Schwing! I am now in love with the name Angus. It's hot! I thought this book was the perfect package....great romance, terrific characters, engaging storyline. Grade: A

Thanks to People magazine for this inspiring photo of Hugh.

Happy Monday,
Penelope

I have Hannah Howell's entire Highlander collection, but I haven't read her stuff recently. So I guess I should start again!
Thanks for the morning shot of Hugh. Can never get enough!

Hi Julia! I haven't read the Highlander series, but this Wherlocke series is terrific. I hate to point this out, but I think Hugh might be sucking in his gut. What do you think? Cute!
