When Will There Be Good News?

Atkinson, Kate
I finished this morning, now I've nothing to read. Lots of twists and turns. I read the large print edition. It is SO MUCH easier than the paperbacks. I was worth driving to the library three cities away to borrow it. Thank goodness for the county library system!

I was reading page 198 when I said out loud, "Who the hell is Tessa?" Well, now we know.

Quote:

Louise was sure that buried deep inside her, lurking in the murky labyrinth of her heart, there was an incredibly well-behaved person wondering when she would ever be let out. Patrick probably wondered the same thing. -- pg. 321

One Good Turn

Atkinson, Kate
Great book, surprise ending. It took me until page 317 until I realized who Julia was. And I just read the previous book in April!

Quote:

You had to hand it to the Welrod. When they said "silenced", they meant silenced. -- pg. 370

Lost

Maguire, Gregory
Confusing story of Winifred Rudge who stops off in London at her cousin's place, run into...ghosts, maybe? It is all cleared up, finally, in a pretty good story. But it was a rough go, for me, for quite a while.

Quote::

...to claim any truck with ghosts. -- pg. 245 - I thought I was the only person who used that word!
