See? Mondays aren't all bad ...

Oy, Monday strikes back. Two guys didn't show up for work today without calling in. Steve in a rotten mood. But we have Moby sold so there is a bright side. 

I'm currently reading SILENCE FOR THE DEAD by Simone St. James. This is a stand alone:
In 1919, Kitty Weekes, pretty, resourceful, and on the run, falsifies her background to obtain a nursing position at Portis House, a remote hospital for soldiers left shell-shocked by the horrors of the Great War. Hiding the shame of their mental instability in what was once a magnificent private estate, the patients suffer from nervous attacks and tormenting dreams. But something more is going on at Portis House—its plaster is crumbling, its plumbing makes eerie noises, and strange breaths of cold waft through the empty rooms. It’s known that the former occupants left abruptly, but where did they go? And why do the patients all seem to share the same nightmare, one so horrific that they dare not speak of it? Kitty finds a dangerous ally in Jack Yates, an inmate who may be a war hero, a madman… or maybe both. But even as Kitty and Jack create a secret, intimate alliance to uncover the truth, disturbing revelations suggest the presence of powerful spectral forces. And when a medical catastrophe leaves them even more isolated, they must battle the menace on their own, caught in the heart of a mystery that could destroy them both.
Published in 2014, it has 385 pages. This is a digital loan from the library.

Very sad news:

Anne of Green Gables actor Jonathan Crombie died of a brain hemorrhage, aged 48. The actor is best known for his role as Gilbert Blythe in the Canadian television drama film Anne of Green Gables and two sequels. The books, of course, are fabulous and Crombie was just fantastic as Gilbert and able to hold his own against Megan Follows who played Anne. 

And to end on a brighter note, these girls ROCK:

Much love,
