Fiction by Chris Fabry.


This was a really good story about a woman haunted by lingering love from an ex-boyfriend who is about to get out of prison.

It had a great surprise at the end!

Camino Island

Fiction by John Grisham.

Camino Island

I'd call this a classic "heist story," the kind where you want the bad guys to get away with the huge theft, and at the same time you also want them to get caught. This was a good story and I enjoyed it more than I have John Grisham's other recent books.

Thanh Ho Delivers

Fiction by Fred Bonnie.

Thanh Ho Delivers

I found this in the book exchange at the library in Shelby County, Alabama. It's by a local author, and I'm always interested in things like that.

The story was pretty good, but unexpected. It's about a Vietnamese girl who flees the fall of Saigon in the mid-seventies and ends up in Birmingham, Alabama, of all places. I liked the book but I wasn't sure about the ending.

Fiction by Mary Anna Evans.

Relics (Faye Longchamp Series #2)

This was an archeological mystery, which is not a genre I've encountered before. It centered around a fictional ethnic group in Alabama,(which shared some traits with existing ones) and was pretty interesting.
