Double Monday on a Tuesday

Three day weekend. Over.

I accomplished a whole lot of ... nothing.

On Saturday morning Steve and I had breakfast at IHOP and ran some errands. Sunday and Monday were rainy and dark which was lovely!

I finished the Louise Penny book. I think I'm going to have to stop reading her. The last book and this one was very agenda-oriented that turned me off.

I wish authors would remember half of their audiences don't believe as they do.

I'm about to start APPRENTICE IN DEATH by JD Robb. 43rd of 43 in series featuring Eve Dallas, a homicide lieutenant in futuristic New York City.
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be. Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer. Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

Published in 2016, it has 384 pages. 

More on the weekend tomorrow.

Much love,
