need more Retrieval Artist stories? there is hope

Since I can’t find book two of the adventures of Noelle DeRicci and Miles Flint, I may take the plunge to purchase electronically…

the second book in the Retrieval Artist series, Extremes, has just become available as an e-book.  Trade paper to follow in two months.  You can get Extremes on Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and in other e-bookstores.  These books do stand alone, so you can start with this one if you want.

Invasion of the Spirea; or, the plot thickens

And now for something completely different.  Gardening.  Having visited Baltimore earlier this month, I am thinking spring, even though we had an actual snow-day two days ago and I can no longer see my own crocus sprouts.

Spirea as a weed?!

This is bugging me. What is with the spirea in my front garden?  It’s re-sprouting from roots and self-seeding! I’ve never seen this before, and I’ve had my own spirea in gardens since, let’s think now, 1998.

Split Second – Alex Kava

I wanted to like this, I really did. There are tons of mysteries by this author, and they seem quite popular. So, I requested Split Second, which is book two.


The writing was painfully forced (sorry if you’re reading this Alex, but …)  I stopped reading just part-way in.  Didn’t care what happened.

Ceremony in Death – J.D. Robb

Oops, already read this one.  Already I can’t remember the plotline. I tried, but it does not stand up to a re-read.
