Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Lunch

This is a collection of stories from numerous major league players.  It is filled with tales of pranks and practical jokes (i.e. Jell-O-man, straight jackets, goats and mules, and water pistols) to remembrances of special games, events (i.e. 2131, earthquake series).  For a true baseball fan, this is a must read, full of laughter and amusements as well as background info on the contributors.  Great for any baseball fan!

Revenge of the Wrought-Iron Flamingos by Donna Andrews


Genre: Cozy Mystery
Subject: copyright infringement, software piracy
Setting: Yorktown, VA
Main Characters: Meg Langslow, Michael Waterston
Series:  Meg Langslow series
Dates Read: September 26 - September 27
Number of pages: 293
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?:  yes, my shelves
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Study Hall

Meg and her friends are participating in a craft fair/reenactment of the battle of Yorktown.  Her boyfriend, Michael's, mother is the affair coordinator and has insisted that all vendors and participants dress in period garb. (those needing a costume can rent it from her dress shop)  Meg, a decorative blacksmith, is trying to sell her wares but when she stumbles upon a dead body in her stall the first night, she has problems.

Since her stall is the crime scene, she can't get back to selling until the police are finished, so she decides to find the murderer and get the police out of her hair.

This book was so much fun between the descriptions of the pink wrought iron flamingos made for a friend to the paparazzi caught in the stocks, and the antics of the anachronisms Town Watch laughter abounds.  A great addition to this series.


From the tow-path to the White House by James Brisbin


Genre: Biography
Subject: James A Garfield
Setting:  USA
Main Characters: James A Garfield
Series:  no
Dates Read: September 10 - September 26
Number of pages:   588
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?:  Nook Freebie
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: History Class

This biography only dealt with the early portion of Garfield's life up to his nomination for President. It detailed his education, military experience, preaching proficiency (came in handy as a politician), and his political career.  It, however, IMHO,overflowed with his interaction with others, carried far too many quotes (entire political speeches, complete letters - pages and pages), overdid the nomination coverage (it was about as long as the 36 ballots at the convention), and very little coverage of the issues with which he was confronted at that time.

I'm moving on to something that actually should inform me of the issues of the day and his short-lived Presidency.  This book was a Freebie from Barnes & Noble, glad I didn't pay for it.  Not recommended.


Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff

Genre:  Biography
Subject: Egyptian history
Setting:  Alexandria, Rome
Main Characters:  Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, Marc Antony, Octavius
Series:  no
Dates Read:  September 18 - September 25
Number of pages: 432

Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Speech Class, Lunch

I will admit that when I started reading this book I was expecting a fictionalized life story, not realizing until I looked closer that this was a non-fiction biography by a Pulitzer Prize winning author.  So the opening made me  sit up and take notice with the statement "She was a Greek woman who's history fell to men's whose futures lay with Rome."  and "Cleopatra's Egypt produced no fine historians."

There were many facts that were conveyed about Cleopatra of which I was unaware.  She came to throne of Egypt with her younger brother when she was eighteen and he was ten during the last century before the birth of Christ.  He was her husband - intermarriage being the norm of the Ptolemys. "While the inbreeding was meant to stabilize the family, it had a paradoxical effect. Succession became a perennial crisis for the Ptolemys, who exacerbated the matter with poison and daggers. Intermarriage consolidated wealth and power but leant a new meaning to sibling rivalry."

At the same time as Cleopatra's accession, Pompey the Great of Rome was defeated at the Battle of Pharsalus, he sought refuge in Egypt, where he was assassinated.  Cleopatra had sided with Julius Caesar who was in Alexandria when she needed a little assistance to assume the power of the Egyptian throne. Caesar claimed her as an ally as well as a lover. While in Egypt, Caesar was exposed to the enormous amount of  knowledge that was stored in the library at Alexandria.  After his return to Rome, Cleopatra gave birth to his son, Caesarion.

"The personal inevitably trumps the political, and the erotic trumps all. We will remember that Cleopatra slept with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony long after we have forgotten what she accomplished in doing so, that she sustained a vast, rich, densely populated empire in its troubled twilight, in the name of a proud and cultivated dynasty."  She was an intelligent, well-educated, politically adept ruler beloved of her people.

The author managed to divulge enormous amount of facts while keeping this reader's interest throughout.  Highly recommended to those interested in ancient history.  Ancient Egypt may not have had any great historians, but this author filled in extremely well.

Mailbox Monday

Welcome to Monday Mailbox, the meme started by Marcia and currently on tour around the internet. This month is being hosted BookNAround. This past week's mailbox arrivals:

I was fortunate enough to get two great looking books this past week:
The Secret Keeper from Simon & Schuster for review
I requested this one months ago and I didn't think I was going to get it, and WHAM - there it was.
The Library Journal describes it...
Classic Morton: 16-year-old Laurel Nicolson sits dreaming away in her childhood tree house when she spies her mother speaking to an unknown man. Later, Laurel witnesses a terrible crime. But it's not until 50 years have passed that she can ask her mother the pertinent questions—which leads to a story involving three strangers in wartime London. Morton's best-selling work is always classy and nuanced.

The Art Forger from LT for review

I finally got caught up on my LibraryThing ER books so I didn't feel bad about requesting this one. And I got it!
Library Journal describes this one...
By page two of this novel, the reader is fully engrossed into the world of struggling artist Claire Roth, nicknamed "The Great Pretender" who copies famous paintings for a website called Reproductions.com. When Aidan Markel, the handsome owner of a prestigious gallery, offers her a show of her own work in exchange for forging a painting, she reluctantly agrees. He brings two paintings to her studio, a supposedly original Degas called After the Bath and a work by an obscure painter of the same size and age. A Degas expert, Claire determines that the Degas in her studio is itself a forgery, and she's the only who knows. Stripping the paint off of the lesser-known work, she creates another forgery, doing such a good job that art authenticators think it is the original Degas, missing from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum since 1990. (Thirteen works worth over $500 million were actually stolen from the museum at that time.) Aidan lands in jail when the copy is seized by the FBI, and Claire will be too unless she finds the original Degas. In this enthralling intrigue, the yearning to own an original work of art is thoughtfully explored, and the text is interspersed with letters from Gardner herself, describing her relationships with the artists whose work she collected. VERDICT This well-researched work combines real elements (though After the Bath never existed) with the understanding that the art world is as fragile and precarious as the art itself, particularly for young hopefuls.

Two great looking books, can't wait to crack them open!


The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

Another that somehow didn't get posted.

Genre: Historical Fiction
Subject: abandioned children, fairy tales, family secrets
Setting: Australia, Cornwall
Main Characters: Nell Andrews, Eliza Makepeace, Rose Mountrachet, Cassandra Andrews, Nathaniel Walker
Series: no
Dates Read: February 1 - February 9
Number of pages: 549
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: yes, loan from Tutu
Category for 12 in 12 challenge:English Lit, Extra Cirricular Activities

This delightful and fascinating book is the story of Eliza, Rose, Nell and Cassandra and how their histories and lives are all intertwined. The story is also told in several different timeframes - 1900's for Eliza and Rose, 1975 Nell's time, and Cassandra in 2005 who connects it all up.

The story centers around Nell who in 1913 is found abandoned at a harbour in Australia with a small suitcase containing some clothes and a book of fairy tales by Eliza. The harbour master takes her in and makes her a member of his family. When she turns 21 he reveals her lack of family history and thus Nell's hunt begins to put her story together.

Nell lives throughout this book in the stories of her mother, and her granddaughter and the reader gets to see how this innocent young child is loved as her life is explored and her mystery resolved.

Morton's ability to draw the reader into the different lives and then connect all the pieces is amazing. Definitely one of my favorites!

I want to thank my friend Whisper1 for recommending this book and my sister Tutu for lending it to me!

Remains to be Scene by Richard Tyler Jordan

Somehow this book review wasn't posted, so here I'm catching up.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Subject: Hollywood, retired actors
Setting: Hollywood, CA
Main Characters: Polly Pepper,Tim, Placenta,Trixie Wilder, Dana Pointer, Missie Miller, Sedra Stone
Series: yes, #1 Polly Pepper mysteries
Dates Read: March 30 - March 31
Number of pages: 352
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: yes, Nook stockpile
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Study Hall, Homework

Polly Pepper was a star back in the Golden Age, but she hasn't had a film role in ages and is really POed when her old rival gets the part in a new film after the character actress dies of a heart attack. Was it really a heart attack?

Then comes a twist when old rival is found dead at the bottom of the high school pool with no water. Who killed her? Should Polly risk taking on the role since there have been two deaths?

Polly with her faithful servant, Placenta, and her gay son, Tim, set out to solve the mystery and get Polly back in the limelight.

I didn't like it. At least 1/3 of the pages were filled with name dropping, and film history per se and when they weren't name dropping they were busy getting drunk. There really wasn't much character development and the mystery was very easy to solve. Not a series I will continue anytime soon.

Buttercream Bump Off by Jenn McKinlay

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Subject: ponzi schemes, lost savings
Setting: Scottsdale, AZ
Main Characters: Melanie Cooper, Angie DeLaura, Tate Harper, Joyce Cooper, Joe DeLaura, Marty Zelaznik
Series: yes, #2 Cupcake Bakery mysteries
Dates Read: September 18
Number of pages: 212
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: yes, my bookshelf
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Study Hall

Melanie has been holding classes for couples at the bakery and in the middle of one her Mom, Joyce, comes in because she needs help buying a dress for a date that she has. This being the first date for her Mom since her Dad's death 10 years before, Melanie agrees to help her go shopping. The next day, after numerous shops, Melanie tries to bribe an elderly man sitting outside the dressing rooms, to say that her mom looks great in whatever she comes out in. When Joyce appears, the man keels over with an apparent heart attack. Joyce decides that the dress is a knockout and buys it on the spot.

The evening of the date, Melanie gets a call from her mother, to come quickly, she thinks the dress has killed the man she was out with. The antics in this book as terribly amusing with love life problems abounding. The mystery wasn't terribly heavy but the storytelling was great.

Nice quick little cozy which has me craving cupcakes!


Embroidered Truths by Monica Ferris

Setting: Excelsior, MN
Main Characters: Betsy Devonshire,Godwin Dulac, John Nye, Susan Laverly
Series: yes, #9 Needlecraft Mysteries

Of course, Goddy is the rime suspect so when he is arrested, Betsy sets out to clear his name, and the investigation and its results are terribly amusing if a bit predictable.


Evil in Carnations by Kate Collins


Genre: Cozy Mystery

Main Characters: Abby Knight, Marco Salvare, Nikki Hiduke, Carmen Gold
Series: yes, # 8 Flower Shop Mysteries

Abby returns from a romantic weekend with Marco to find that her roommate Nikki has gone out with Jonas Treat (after Abby warned her not to) and now that Jonas has been found murdered, Nikki is in a bundle of trouble since she was apparently the last one to see him alive.

Nikki's lawyer hires Marco to investigate and, of course, Abby has to join in. The suspects include a Speed Dating Coordinator (where Nikki and Jonas met), an ex-fiancée, previous business associate, previous client, and Jonas' own private stalker. With all those to check out Abby gets into a few unusual situations getting her family to jump to some interesting conclusions.

It's been a while since I read the last Flower Shop mystery and I'm wondering how I could have let that much time go by. This cozies are always so much fun because Abby Knight along with her family and employees just make me laugh. I definitely cannot let this much time go by again.


Due or Die by Jenn McKinlay

Subject: friendship, pet adoptions, honoring vows
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Setting: Briar Creek CT
Main Characters: Lindsay Norris, Carrie Rushton, Mike Sullivan, Edmund Sent
Series: yes, #2 Library Lovers Mysteries

Number of pages: 304
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: no, bought for Nook
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Class Schedule

The crafternooners have gathered at the library and are startled when a small puppy is brought to them having been found in the book drop. They oo and ah because he really is adorable and persuade Lindsey to look after him until a new owner can be found and she reluctantly agrees.

That same evening, the Friends of the Library hold a meeting and elect Carrie as their President. The old President, Bill Sent, is angry but turns over all the keys and such to Carrie and drives off. Lindsey goes home with Carrie along with Sully and they discover that Carrie's husband has been murdered.

The next day Lindsey is nearly run over by Marjorie Bilson (Batty Bilson) who is sweet on Bill Sent, and urges Lindsey to get Bill back to the top of the Friends.

Events keep swirling around, along with the snow that keeps falling and falling in blizzard proportions as Lindsey with Heathcliff (the dog) make every effort to solve the murder and keep themselves alive at the same time.

This book was so much fun! Between the matchmaking ladies and the zany dog and people traipsing through blizzard conditions, you have to laugh. When did the puppy get housebroken? Nobody seemed to go out in the snow unless it was to get into trouble. The clues to the mystery were well woven throughout and, again, the characters were great. The next one comes out in December, I'll be watching for it!

MailBox Monday

Welcome to Monday Mailbox, the meme started by Marcia and currently on tour around the internet. This month is being hosted BookNAround This past week's mailbox arrivals:

I received an ARC of this lovely little Young Adult book from Scholastic Inc. for review. Now, just where can I squeeze it in? hmmmm......
I just love contests and especially when I win! I was the runner-up on Tutu's Two Cents but this one looks like fun!

What sorts of goodies did you get in your mailbox this week? Be sure to share your good fortune and I hope you'll leave me a comment as well. Happy reading this week!


Willful Behaviour by Donna Leon


Genre: Mystery
Subject: jealousy, hidden art treasures,
Setting: Venice Italy
Main Characters: Commissiaro Guido Brunetti, Claudia Leonardo, Heddy Jacobs
Series: yes, #11 Commissario Brunetti mysteries
Dates Read: September 5 - September 9
Number of pages: 320
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: yes, audio stockpile
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Speech class

In this 11th installment of the Commissario Brunetti mysteries, this one starts with Guido's wife Paola presenting him with an odd question that had been posed to her by one of her students. Claudia Leonardo knew that Paola's husband was a policeman and asked if she could find out if there was a way legally to have a person who had been convicted and sentenced for a crime declared innocent.

When Paola posed the question, Guido hedged, stating that he had to know the nature of the crime before he could give any kind of valid answer. So Paola sent Claudia to visit Commissario Guido Brunetti at his office to pose the question herself. Claudia gives the barest facts and no names. Guido is intrigued but thinks no more of it until he finds that his newest murder victim is none other than Claudia Leonardo.

After tracking down those who may know why Claudia was killed, Guido discovers Nazi Collaborators with a stockpile of millions in art treasures. Interwoven is a minor tale of municipal corruption and bribery.

This one of absolutely fascinating up until the last few chapters. The ending was, IMO, a little anticlimactic but overall a very good read.


Fundraising the Dead by Sheila Connolly

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Subject: cataloging, charities
Setting: Philadelphia, PA
Main Characters: Nell Pratt, Marty Terwillinger, James Morrison
Series: yes, #1 Museum Mysteries
Dates Read: September 4 - September 6
Number of pages: 336
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: yes, Nook stockpile
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Lunch

Just before the big gala for the Historical Society's anniversary, Nell Pratt, the chief fundraiser, is confronted my one of the board members concerning some missing artifacts. Promising that she'll look into it and mentioning it to the chief cataloger, Alfred Findley, the party goes on, but the next morning Nell discovers Alfred dead in the stacks.

Since Alfred is the only one who knew had to access information about the Society's collections through the new computer cataloging system, Nell has a difficult time trying to track down the missing artifacts. The police rule Alfred's death accidental but as Nell delves deeper and deeper, she not so sure.

I loved the characters in this story, they were realistic, but they were funny and heartwarming and the baddies were the guys you really didn't like. The mystery part was fun with interesting facts about our history as well as preservation of old objects. A definite keeper.


The Bishop and the Beggar Girl of St. Germain by Andrew Greeley


Genre: Cozy Mystery
Subject: Missing person, priesthood
Setting: Paris, France
Main Characters: Bishop Blackwood Ryan
Series: yes, # 12 Father Blackie Ryan
Dates Read: September 3
Number of pages: 252 Audio
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: no, public library
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Speech Class

I usually don't read a book from a series this far ahead if I haven't read the first ones, but I picked it up and thought it sounded good so I popped it in the player and got caught up in the story. I'll now have to backtrack and find the earlier adventures of Bishop Blackie Ryan.

Because of his apparent notoriety at solving mysteries, Bishop Ryan is ordered by his superiors to go to Paris and find a missing Dominican who has quite a following including his on TV show.

The investigation is interesting and the solution surprising…great fun.


The Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber


Genre: Fiction with romance
Subject: emotional healing, acceptance, forgiveness
Setting: Cedar Cove, WA
Main Characters: Jo Marie Rose, Abby Kincaid, Josh Weaver, Richard Lambert, Michelle Nelson
Series: yes, # 1 Rose Harbor Inn
Dates Read: August 29 - September 1
Number of pages: 330
Off the Shelf (pre-2012)? Source?: yes, LT ER
Category for 12 in 12 challenge: Homework

Jo Marie Rose's husband of less than a year is killed in Afghanistan. Devastated, she decides that she needs a major change in her life and buys a B&B in Cedar Cove, WA. Renaming the property the Rose Harbor Inn to honor her husband, her first guests are two individuals with troubles of their own.

Abby Kincaid has been carrying around the guilt of being the driver when her best friend was killed in an auto accident. Josh Weaver was kicked out of the home that he grew up in by a stepfather who always felt that Josh didn't belong. Now dying, the stepfather has no one and Josh is called back.

Each of these central characters came to Cedar Cove with issues - Abby felt people would still blame her, Josh was still angry for the treatment he had received as a teenager, and Jo Marie wasn't sure how to go on without her husband.

The heartwarming acceptance and forgiveness that is threaded throughout this book brought through by the magnificent writing of Debbie Macomber will definitely make this one of my top reads of the year.

Thank you LT for sending this book to me. Funny I don't remember requesting it, but I'm sure glad I got it. I've never read a Debbie Macomber book before, but I definitely will again.
Progress is being made! I finished 4 more categories for my 12 in 12 challenge as well as not even noting last month in my recap that I finished my 75 book challenge. This month I read 12 books, a few stinkers, but mostly enjoyable.
