Cop Town

Cop TownCop Town by Karin Slaughter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Guess I am addicted to cop stories....but Karin Slaughter did not write the usual one. This story centered around the women on the police force and how they prove themselves capable of doing such a demanding job along with the job of being a female cop in a predominantly male world.

And of course, the story shows this when Kate Murphy's first day on the job in the Atlanta PD turns into one where she is not sure she will return the next day. Only when she hooks up with Maggie Lawson to find the person responsible for killing other cops, does she show her ability and knowledge of what a cop is capable of. Between their personal problems (both had family who did not want them to become cops) and those on the job, these ladies were able to solve the crimes (with a few surprises in between) and become strong women in the eyes of their fellow cops.

Rain Girl

Rain GirlRain Girl by Gabi Kreslehner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Terrific book.....starts off with drama....girl wanders into the road and gets hit by a car. There is alot of back and forth between what happened 20 years ago and the present...but if you stick with the book you will soon find out the relation of both stories, the people involved in them...with a few surprises thrown in.....very amazing surprises.....

Summer House with Swimming Pool

Summer House with Swimming PoolSummer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Marc, the doctor....who drives me crazy. As a parent, who would not report the rape of your daughter....it seemed like he was ashamed it happened....and then again maybe he just wanted to play G-d....he should not have gone to the beach house...but then again, there are alot of should haves and should not haves in this book. Very wordy and found while I had a problem reading it...I did not give up since I was waiting for the "story" behind this book.

I had many issues with both the father and how he handled things....taking it into his own hands. Waiting for him to report it to the police....not even getting counseling for his daughter....guess it was not my cup of tea....this book....

Hi

 HI....everyone....havent been around for quite some time.....havent been blogging, that is.  I have been reading books and posting reviews....other than that I have been battling a health problem and it doesnt seem to be getting better.

It is called Neuropathy and has been affecting my feet and legs.  Currently on nerve meds and pain medicine...so have been coping.  Lately I have been having the same problem with my hands, so typing is bothering me, but I manage.  Off for the summer so will not have to worry about work....and will be going on vacation this summer....looking forward to that since stress does not help my condition.

I belong to a great group on FB and we encourage each other and share info......Anyone of my blogging buddies have this condition?  Would love to chat about it.

Since I am not a complainer, and push myself to cope with this problem and enjoy life as much as I can (just a bit slower these days).....I will try to keep up with my blogging again.

Are you a reader? Then take a look at my book reviews and enjoy.  Love mysteries mostly....how about you?
