A Single Thread

The story was OK. The characters just weren't that interesting. I did go on and read the second book: A Thread of Truth and that was a little better.

I liked the recipes at the end of the book. Maybe I should have read the 1st book in the series first because I just couldn't get into these characters. I found it boring.

Christmas Cookie Murder

There was not much to this book. Very light. I would have liked more of a mystery. I'm giving the author another try by reading the next book in the series. I did enjoy the recipes at the end of the book.

Book A+ Movie C-

This movie is ok. It left you looking for more.The movie did not do the books justice. I did not laugh like I did while reading the book, Stephanie is just to well dressed. From the books I'm a Ranger fan but from the movie I'm Morelli fan now. Thought we saw all of the funny parts from the movie trailers. Loved the last scene where she takes Morelli to the police station.

 
Confusing, Poorly Written
This book was not "razor sharp"

If you have not read the other books in the series this one is not worth reading. It was very hard to follow and had a ridiculous plot. There are too many characters with very small parts.

Pure Joy: The Dogs We Love by Danielle Steel
 
Slow, Insightful, Boring
Pure Joy -rich lady with many dogs.

boring as can be. I was hoping for cute dog stories. but mostly it is about how she has multiple dogs at one time. She buys them from pet store and even auction them off and gives dogs as gifts. I don\'t agree with this.

The Cuckoo\'s Calling

Dull & tedious. I was frustrated with the style of writing. There’s no action. It’s all conversation. I wanted it to be over. It\'s a whodunit involving a private eye. there is a long exposition at the end of the how and why.
