I couldn't find a good snippet from Page 56, so this is from Page 156.


They returned to the table and got their meals situated. Rodger smiled at her over their steaming bowls of soup and asked her what it was she hoped to learn from him. She took his directness at face value.

  9. For no particularly good reason, that book cover is making me think of Dim Sum Dead: A Madeline Bean Culinary Mystery
    by Jerrilyn Farmer. Well the whole food mystery connection and the covers have very similar themes now that I look at it. Clearly I am tired and easily distracted by shiny objects today.

  10. A mystery is easier solved with a full stomach. Whether a bowl of soup or a cuppa tea, it works for me!

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
