Stuff and Nonsense (Tim Finn Free)


A Delicate Truth by John Le Carre.  Le Carre was born in 1931.  This book was born in 2013.  A successful counterintelligence operation may not have been a success.

Dead, White and Blue by Carolyn Hart.  The title reminds me of Sheriff Dan Rhodes in Red, White and Blur Murder where Rhodes gets beat up by a woman.  Twice.

Blossom Sisters by Fern Michaels.  I've said my piece about these sister titles.

Bat in the Belfry by Sarah Graves.  Home Repair is Homicide book.  Graves bio on the flyleaf says she lives in a house from 1823.  Was it as uninsulated as my 1890 house is now?

Silken Prey by John Sandford.  The Prey novels are Anthony Neil Smith's newest obsession.  This one has Lucas Davenport investigating thefts of silk worms n Edina.  Maybe.

12th of Never by James Patterson Literary Industries Amalgamated.  ___ _____ __ ___ _____ ___ _____ ____.  The blog post is like the plot.  Just fill in the blanks.

Secretly Smitten by Four Women Whose Names I Don't Want to Check for Spelling.  Three granddaughters find some dog tags in their grandmother's attic.

Dead Ever After by Charlaine Harris.  One of those vampire things by Harris.

Inferno by Dan Brown.

Dan Brown's New Book Came With A Big Warning.

Best Man by Kristan Higgins.  Paperback romance because people enjoy paperback romances. I don't know if people enjoy having the image of the dog on the front cover flipped and put on the back cover.  I don't enjoy that.  I am always annoyed when a graphic artist flips photos.

Best Kept Secret by Jeffrey Archer.  Here is a worst kept secret about Archer: he lied in court and went to prison for it.
