Book Review

It's been awhile since I've read a book that I couldn't put down. But I just finished Every Secret Thing by Laura Lippman and it was one of those books. What a great thriller! She does a fabulous job of unfolding two parallel stories - one from present day and one that took place seven years ago. I couldn't wait to find out what happened! As someone who more often than not can figure out whodunit, I was surprised by several revelations in this book.

Every Secret Thing is a stand-alone from Lippman's "Tess Monaghan" series, which I'm embarrassed to admit I have not read. But I'm getting ready to log onto the library catalog and reserve the first book in the series and get started right away. Why haven't I read these books? Especially since they take place in Baltimore. It was great to read about all the neighborhood references in Every Secret Thing. I'm jumping on the Laura Lippman bandwagon.

PS - Yes, I lied about posting the pictures from Halloween. First, I didn't log on at home because I was too busy reading. And second, I forgot what a huge mess the computer area is. We bought a new filing cabinet to put next to the computer to also serve as a table for the scanner and printer, but we encountered some space issues and temporarily gave up on doing anything. So I can barely get to the keyboard and the seat of the desk chair is stacked high with magazines that were on the old table. But it's on the to-do list for this weekend, so I'll try to get caught up.

PPS - The Internet filter at work won't let me view Is it getting hung up on "lipp" with two p's as an indicator of porn? Hmmm...
