About to start DEVOTED IN DEATH by JD Robb. This is 41st of 41 in series featuring Eve Dallas, a homicide lieutenant in futuristic New York City (if I'm counting correctly). Here's a description:
When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim’s injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart—and initials inside reading E and D . . . Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don’t ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo’s got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else’s. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone—an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again. As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they’ve landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve . . .
Published in 2015, it has 384 pages.
I'll be finished the Estelle Ryan today. I liked this book better than the last one. Just felt pacy-er.
Steve woke up with the beginnings of a cold this morning so we'll be taking it easy this weekend. I have a lot to read but I do have to run some errands tomorrow. Ryker apparently slashed the sheets on the bed again so I have to buy new ones. Again.
I came across this. Very cool:
Watch the guy walking take away a pin each from the jugglers and then toss them back. Love it.
We hired a new receptionist; a sweet girl named Alexandra. Woot! She can start part time on Monday to begin training. Double woot! Bye Allan (woot!) in 8 days.
I mean, come on. He's missed 22 days since January being ill, 8 days of vacation. He's missed one complete month out of nine in 2015.
To close, instead of sneaking a Deeks, I'm going to do a Charm Attack:
All right, full disclosure, this is not Prince Charming/David. This is his not-so-nice twin brother Prince James -- who's dead now (it's a long story)-- but it's still a mighty fine image to have up on the page for a couple days. (eyebrow wiggle is extra bonus) :)
Ok, HERE is Charming:
Have a great weekend, y'all.
