Bitter Harvest: A Womans Fury A Mothers Sacrifice
Simon & Schuster, 2000
Excellent, well-written book
Ann Rule did an excellent job with this story. She accurately recounts the facts of the true crime while managing to make interesting and entertaining. Unfortunately, the crime itself is extremely sad as it concerncs familial homicide but it makes for a good read that you don't want to put down. Lots of little details are included so you know she did her homework on this one.

Shattered (Bitter Creek)
Joan Johnston does it again!
Joan Johnston has been a favorite of mine as soon as I picked up my first book. Her characters come alive on the page and the story line is excellent. Even though you know any of her books always end up making you glad you read it, they still draw me. I hope she'll be writing for years to come. I just love "manly" men who take charge but still have a care for the heroine's heart. I'd love to ...
Bitter is the New Black: Confessions of a Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smartass,Or, Why You ...
Fun read for those who don't take it so seriously
Many friends recommended I read Jen Lancaster - and they all loved the books! I just read Bitter is the New Black and honestly had mixed feelings at the beginning. "Old" Jen (not in age, mind you) is an obnoxious prima donna. But that's exactly who she is admitting to being. Once I got over how much I don't think I would have liked her as a person, I totally got into the book and thoroughly ...
The Next Mrs. Blackthorne: A Bitter Creek Novel
A Great Read
Joan Johnston has done it again - drawn us into the bitter feud between the Grayhawks and Blackthornes and wrapped us in the not-to-be-denied emotional bond between Libby Grayhawk and Clay Blackthorne. At eighteen, Kate Grayhawk is still waging a campaign to get her parents together and married. One big stumbling block - Jocelyn Montrose, sister to Clay's late wife and now his fiancee. When ...
Such a Pretty Fat: One Narcissist's Quest to Discover If Her Life Makes Her Ass Look Big, or Why Pie Is Not ...
Such a Funny Read
I'm a Jen Lancaster fan...... she puts into writing things that I think in my head but fear to say out loud. So I definitely fall into THAT group. I think she's hysterical and I can even overlook her fondness for Ann Coulter. Unlike a lot of other reviewers, I find that Jen's books get better and funnier each time. I loved Bitter, loved Bright Lights even more, and might just love Pretty Fat ...
Bright Lights, Big Ass: A Self-Indulgent, Surly, Ex-Sorority Girl's Guide to Why it Often Sucks in the City, ...
One funny ride
I seriously had such a great time reading this book - the title got me, but Jen Lancaster's sardonic humor & utterly witty writing style is the reason I've downloaded everything she's written onto my Kindle. I can't count the number of times I laughed Out Loud! Hilarious, honest appraisals of some of the events and relationships in her life written in a way I "get"... can't wait to ready more.

Rivals by Joan Johnston
I loved this book so much that after I finished reading it I immediately ordered "The next Mrs. Blackthorne", the sequel. It just arrived and I started reading it, and I really like it alot! I usually read Norah Robert's books, (I am so spoiled by her amazing writing!) Unfortunatley I have read all the Norah Roberts books, as well as her "J.D. Robb" books, so it is nice to find a new author that ...

His calling card is a scroll of human parchment engraved with toxic verse. For Jessica the most baffling aspect of the crimes is that no victims show ...

The HCG Diet Cookbook: Helping Weight Loss Happen
This cookbook has been a LIFESAVER!
I received my cookbook two weeks ago and it has made the HCG diet SO much more manageable. My friends and I who are all doing HCG got together for a "cooking party" and made 10 of the recipes. The Bangladesh Beef Curry is to die for, the Spinach and Chard Meatloaf is so good I would serve it at a dinner party, also loved the unique flavor of the Chicken Apple Chard. YUM! The recipes are ...
A Stranger's Game (Bitter Creek)
Where is the next book?
This was a great read and nice to find out what happened to Breed. I liked the plot of a serial killer added into the book. It made the book slightly mysterious. I would deffinately recommend this book to others. I would be sure to read The Next Mrs. Blackthorne before this one. It is always good to read the books in order. My mother and I are both waiting for the next book to come out to ...
A Fine and Bitter Snow: A Kate Shugak Novel

A Fine And Bitter Snow
Interesting reading,as the author uses the backdrop of Alaska, incorporating it into the plot itself.The reading of that usage brought me into a mental space and time I have not felt in many years.I thank the author for that.

Tor Books, 2010
Best Book I've Read in a While.
This book was wonderful. I am definitely not a connoisseur of war novels, and was a little hesitant about giving this one a go, but I was very glad I did. The characters could have been more, no doubt about that, but the story was so rich. I felt like this very well could have happened back during world war II. It was very adept at portraying the gruesome reality of what one has to do, or who ...
This is Sara Paretsky at her best - and her best is very very good.

Any Bitter Thing: A Novel
Don't want it to end
I am about 3/4 through this book and I find myself putting it down after reading another page or two. I don't want it to end. I don't want to finish this book because I know it will be awhile before I find another which is so well written. Page after page of engrossing, beautiful writing...
