As a matter of fact, yes, yes I have. I read Robert B. Parker's Lullaby, published after his death and authored by Ace Atkins. It's a Spenser novel, and that made it even better! Maybe Ace can continue to write this series...
Then I read Redfield Farm, by Judith Coopey, an excellent, well researched story of a Quaker family involved in the Underground Railroad prior to the Civil War. A very "smart" read, if you know what I mean.
I just finished Allan Folsom's The Exile. This superb action packed novel is a long one. It consists of 702 pages, so be warned: don't start it unless you have time to finish it. It's a good one!!!
Interspersed with these wonderful reads, I also read The Devil's Cradle by Sylvia Nobel. It was an okay novel, but just let me say, it wasn't quite my cup-of-tea. Enough said about that. I have two of her others here that I borrowed from Curley. I intend to just give 'em back unread. After much soul searching several years ago, I gave myself permission to not finish a book that I wasn't enjoying. I give it a chance, but now I don't feel obligated to read one if it doesn't meet my expectations. Nobel's work doesn't.
But, I must say, that three out of the last four were real "barn burners" for me. Not a bad pick from my local library, huh?
I still need to get used to using my Kindle. There's a lot of good stuff available at little or no cost now for Kindle, and all e readers, but I still like the look, feel, and smell of the written word, on paper, held in my hand. Call me old fashioned...that's okay!
