Chesapeake Crimes: They Had It Comin'
Information from the editors
I'm one of the coordinating editors of this book. I had to give it a rating to write here so I gave it five stars. Yes, I'm biased, but the book actually deserves it. Anyway, I'm writing here because this book actually has 20 stories from 20 great authors, but Amazon for whatever reason only lists a few of our authors up above. Here is a full list of the authors. We hope you like the book. ...
Chesapeake Crimes II
A Great Read!
I love a good mystery, one you can curl-up with at night and immerse yourself in; I truly found more than my cup of tea in this work. We don't just have one mystery to solve, but fifteen, as some top-notch writers take us from one dark corner to the next in reverting tales of murder, mayhem and mystery. My favorite was,"A Senior Discount On Death." I loved the two main characters, Kate and ...
Tropical Desserts Recipes for Exotic Fruits, Nuts and Spices
Andrew; Flynn, Donna K. MacLauchlan
Macmillan, New York
A nut and fruit lovers extravaganza
For one who loves fruits and nuts, and with the growing availability of exotic fruits, this book is a winner. With the author's experience at Trotter's and Coyote Cafe, this guy is good. Some are simple and others quite complex, but each fulfills its promise of delivering uniqueness and packed flavor. From soups to breads to puddings, this is a great dessert resource. Too bad, it's out of ...
A Murder Hatched: Murder with Peacocks and Murder with Puffins, the First Two Books in the Meg Langslow ...
What A Great Start!!
My mother-in-law bought me Donna Andrew's, "The Penguins Who Knew Too Much", and I'm the type who likes to start with authors's first books, so I ordered, "A Murder Hatched", which has her first two books, and they were both enjoyable reads. I have bought the book for my mother-in-law, "A Murder Hatched" which she has highly enjoyed and my daughters have borrowed the book and has given it high ...
Further Dimensions of Healing Addictions

Numerous vibrational therapies are suggested, a deeper appreciation of the subtle energy bodies and chakras is offered, and there is a study of the karma of addiction and relevant past life patterns. Specific addictions discussed include: coffee, tobacco, ...
The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Personality Disorders
American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc.
An authoritative review, and a very precious Compendium.
Personality traits, styles, and disorders are a very complex domain in the Behavioral Sciences. Personality Disorders are currently still catalogued as Axis II disorders in the DSM-IV-TR (APA, 2000). Soon we will be blessed by the 5th edition of the DSM. Personality disorders are planned to be one of the hottest topic in the new edition. Diagnoses will change. Criteria will be added (and ...

Top-Notch Novel in This Excellent Series
To me, the best mysteries can be viewed more as novels than as puzzles to be solved. Donna Leon successfully crosses into this high ground of mystery writing with Wilful Behaviour. In fact, such a successful novel can be read independently of the other books in a series. Wilful Behaviour also meets that test. Do you like a book with memorable characters? Wilful Behaviour delivers both with ...
Quiet Storm Books
Mystery At It's Best
If you are a follower of my reviews, you know how much I enjoy short stories. I was excited to be reviewing such as work from a publisher that I know turns out the finest in mystery novels. Chesapeake Crimes is compiled of short stories packed full of mystery, intrigue and suspense. In this work, you get a delightful taste of numerous authors styles in writing, and perhaps a tad of their ...
A Sea of Troubles
Random House Audiobooks
Brunetti Explores South of the Lido
A Sea of Troubles is a pleasant change in the Guido Brunetti series. Although Venice is surrounded (and almost inundated by) the sea, there's often little sense of that element in the earlier stories except in recounting the need to take a boat or vaporetto to get somewhere. In this book, we learn about fishing and its challenges (for fisherman and those who eat their catch) as Donna Leon takes ...

Revenge of the Wrought Iron Flamingos
Revenge of the Wrought-Iron Flamingos
If you love Meg's mother's wacky friend and want to learn about more of Meg's artistic pieces that she creates. This is the one to go to. Finally, I get to see some of her finished pieces.
Swan for the Money (Meg Langslow, No 11)
Funny, with Meg's quirky family and animals
Meg Langslow isn't looking forward to presiding over a rose show--but once again, her mother didn't take no for an answer. Meg didn't realize, however, how bad it could get. Deer are eating her father's contenders for darkest rose and they've obviously been artificially attracted. Then someone absconds with the dog owned by the woman who owns the barns where the show is being held, leaving a ...
You've Got Murder (A Turing Hopper Mystery)
As a longtime computer geek (since the 70s), I usually have to wince (sometimes a LOT - don't read Dan Brown's Digital Fortress if you're even the slightest bit geeky) at most of the fiction-with-computers-in I run across. Finally, I can relax and enjoy a well-drawn and really damn plausible AIP. Ahhh.... Can't wait to read the rest of the series!
Delete All Suspects (A Turing Hooper Mystery)
The Voice in the Machine
This is the fourth Turing Hopper mystery that I've read. Turing is an AIP, i.e. an Artificial Intelligence Personality super computer, who is owned by the Universal Library. Turing has become a sentient being, and although confined in her machine space, she sees through webcams, communicates with humans with an artificial voice, and can make cellular phone calls. Andrews has made Turing into ...
Six Geese a Slaying
St. Martin Paperbacks
Who Doesn't Love Santa Claus?
It is two days before Christmas in Caerphilly, Virginia and Meg Langslow is in charge of this year's holiday parade. The climax of the absurdly huge event (celebrating not only Christmas but also all the winter holidays) is the arrival of Santa Claus who has been portrayed for years by a singularly horrible local man, chosen not for his jolly disposition but because he fit the costume. As Meg ...
No Nest for the Wicket
Entertaining, witty, well-plotted - one of best in the series
I generally enjoy this series, and when I see that the author has a new book out, I always get it. I have sometimes been disappointed because it's not as good as I expected, but that's not the case with this book -- it was one of the better in the series, all of which have a bird reference in the title. In this case, the nest belongs to a duck -- named Duck. You can imagine what happens when ...

Setient computer solves another crime!
Turing Hopper is a great protagonist. Because she is an Artificial Intelligence Personality (AIP) who is sentient, she gets help from her friends Tim Pincoski and Maude Graham. Their employee Ray Santiago is killed. They begin to investigate. Unfortunately they end up with more questions than answers. They soon discover that Ray wasn't exactly who he presented himself to be. Plus they can't ...
Crouching Buzzard, Leaping Loon
St. Martin's Minotaur
Mystery With A Chuckle
I'm an avid mystery fan. I received my first Meg Lanslow book via an e-bay client of my daughter-in-law. I have been hooked ever since. Meg's family, especially her Dad, add so much to the book, and like some of us, she always finds herself in situations she really doesn't want to be in. When the office practical joker is murdered right in front of witnesses while riding on the mail cart, ...
We'll Always Have Parrots
Books on Tape
the funniest so far
In a series of very funny books, this one stands out as the best so far. Donna Andrews has a real talent for writing laugh out loud scenarios. Whenever an animal (or her dad) enters a scene, you know it is going to be uniquely written, extremely funny and never disappointing. This one, with parrots, monkeys and a tiger, is my favorite, so far. Another plus with Andrews is that you do not get the ...
