Uninspired Post, I Suppose Deaver Is Alright


Tigerlily's Orchids by Ruth Rendell. We have two copies of this due to an order error. An error in ordering. Erroneous orders. Arachnid owners. Aardvark orchids.

Lime Creek by Joe Henry. A short novel. Family drama in the West with a headstrong son and his father trying to "impart the wisdom of this way of life."

One Summer by David Baldacci. Baldacci writes family reconciliation novel.

Against All Enemies by Tom Clancy with Peter Telep. Clancy's latest doorstop. "America's enemies...rendezvous...Taliban...horrific turn...Pakistani colonel...forces more powerful and cunning...failure not an option...secrecy is the ultimate weapon...shocking revelation...unholy alliance...vicious Mexican drug cartel...bring the fire of jihad to the hearts of the infidels...ultimate terror and destruction...heart-stopping thriller."

Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares. An adult follow-up to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Because wearing the same pants connects people. What about other clothing items? Socks? Underwear? Earplugs?

Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver. Deaver is an Ian Fleming fan. Deaver was hired to write a James Bond novel. Here it is. Here is page 294:
"A hostile."
The man had a mobile but wasn't making a call; he was taking a picture of bond with Jordaan - proof that Bond was working with the police.
Bond snapped, "Get your weapon and stay inside with your grandmother."
He sprinted hard across the street as the man fled up a narrow alley leading toward Signal Hill, through the deepening dusk.

When Passions Rule by Johanna Lindsey. Cover has some shirtless guy in tight pants with his back to the camera.

The Profession by Steven Pressfield. The Middle East in 2032 with privately held armies across the region.

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson. This should be a good one. Woman loses her memory each time she goes to sleep. Her loving husband may not be so loving. Madison PL has a review of this on their blog.


William and Catherine: their romance and royal wedding in photographs created by David Elliot Cohen. Photos of wealthy people. What's the sister who became a big deal? Pippa?

UPDATE: Motorhead's cover of God Save the Queen is playing. That reminded of this book which I just hand sold to a former Library Page who loves Prince William.
