Well, I did it! I read 30 books in a year. My best year for reading since before my Master's degree!! This is a book that is in a long series that I have read for many years, Kay Scarpetta is the main character and is a medical examiner. Since this is about the 20th something book in this series, maybe all the background information reviewing was to entice new readers to the series - this book as a starting point if you wanted to pick up the series now. However, I was severely disappointed in this one. It was all I could do to get through it. I just kept thinking it would get better. It may be time to let this series die. :(
Next on my list (over Christmas break) has been recommended to me by several people - Redeeming Love. People that have read it, say they read it multiple times. We'll see!
