I am thankful for my husband of 37 years. He is the best friend anyone could have.

Here we are at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin last month.

Look What the Wind Blew In (Dig Site Mysteries, #1)Look What the Wind Blew In by Ann Charles

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The first in a series that's a spinoff of the Deadwood Series. I really liked Violet's brother, Quint. This book is set in the jungles of Mexcio and combines ancient curses and modern archeology and romance as Quint goes to a dig in Mexico to find out what happened to his old professor and falls head over heels for the archeologist is digging at the site now, Angelica Garcia. Danger mystery and a few giggles ensue as we meet some unforgettable characters in the steamy jungle.

Sleeping Giants (Themis Files, #1)Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book grabbed me from the first sentence and kept me turning pages for days. We were visiting Germany and I read it at every chance I got until I finished. The style is quite unique and the story is very compelling. I couldn't stop but even then, it leaves you wondering.

It is the story of a very strange scientific discovery that confounds those who found it and even at the end, we are not really sure what has happened. There is another book in the series...

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is the second book in the Themis Files and it's even creepier than the first. Alien robots begin appearing all over the globe and the world soon sees that they are not friendly. We jo9iun our nameless man and the rest in another adventure that will take us in some very unexpected directions. We find out evenutally that all we've been told could be a lie...

Feliz Navidead (Santa Fe Cafe Mystery #3)Feliz Navidead by Ann Myers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Rita is at it again and this time, Celia could be in danger. One of the actors in the Christmas pageant is murdered and Rita vows to make sure that Celia is safe. This one has Indian artifacts, Rita's mom and lots of tasty food to make you wish you could be in Santa Fe at Christmas, too.

The mystery is fun and the food sounds great and the added bonus is Flori and her wacky pals as they lend a hand...

a really fun read.
