I am so very sorry, I fell asleep watching Stargate thinking that there was something else I needed to do ..............
I was thinking that I needed to go to bed early so that I would be up for the House Doctor to come at the very early (for me anyway) hour of 9:00.......
I'm not quite a wake yet but let the day begin...

Uneasy Spirits: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery
In this sequel to Maids of Misfortune, it is the fall of 1879 and Annie Fuller, a young San Francisco widow, has a problem. Despite her growing financial success as the clairvoyant Madam Sibyl, Annie doesn't believe in the astrology and palmistry her clients think are the basis for her advice.

Kathleen Hennessey, Annie Fuller's young Irish maid, has a plan. When her mistress is asked to expose a fraudulent trance medium, Arabella Frampton, Kathleen is determined to assist in the investigation, just like the Pinkerton detectives she has read about in the dime novels.

Nate Dawson, up-and-coming San Francisco lawyer, has a dilemma. He wants to marry the unconventional Annie Fuller, but he doesn't feel he can reveal his true feelings until he has a way to make enough money to support her.

Sandy, speaking as a guilty Non-starter and often as not Non-poster as well, ANY start is great and much appreciated. All that matters is to get everyone dragged over to a new day, and even what you call a no-frills start (seemed pretty frilly to me though) has accomplished that perfectly!

Glad to hear you have made a nice connection into the future job department, and hope they need someone soon (and that you don't have to slave ever again as you did before - you've needed a good holiday just to recover), happy belated birthday to Chris (what book did he choose at the shop? somehow I missed the answer to that one) and once again, many, many thanks.

Greetings to all who are about to join the new day, and happy hunting. Hope to see LOB bounding in sometime soon free of pain in the neck or elsewhere, and ready to take on the world again. Fingers definitely crossed for that one.

From my wish list.....

The Devil To Pay (Hennessey.)
After years of drudgery and unpaid servitude to her demanding and abusive mother, shy, reserved ADELA FARADAY is finally free. She has won a great deal of money on the lottery and with her mother now dead embarks on the trip of a lifetime, touring the southern states of America.
On her third day in Alabama she meets JONAS LANDO, a disdainful, rude and embittered hermit, haunted by the death of his wife. She is wary but intrigued by him, especially when he comes to her rescue when she is lost in the woods.
On her fourth day she herself rescues a young girl on the run from the rich and powerful but sadistic Dashiel Glissando. After several frights and near misses Adela finally manages to get the girl out of the country and thinking that is the end of her adventures continues with her tour not knowing that the enraged Glissando has discovered her part in the girl's escape. He enlists the help of a hitman, STERLING HENNESSEY, with instructions to extract any information about Desdemona's---Glissando calls all his employees by names of character's in Shakespeare's plays---whereabouts then kill her. Hennessey tracks her to her next port of call, Mississippi, and there befriends her hoping to illicit information the easy way before he does what he's been paid to do.
But Hennessey, the world weary, dispassionate, cold hearted killer is not prepared for the feelings she engenders in him. Feelings of respect, protectiveness, and affection.
But he's torn between the five million dollars Glissando has promised him, a personal oath he himself has made and his affection for Adela.
Then something happens that causes him to act quickly and he kidnaps Adela, but she escapes and seeks refuge in the home of Jonas Lando. But it's not long before Glissando's men come calling and Adela has to decide who to trust, the troubled and tormented Jonas Lando. Sterling Hennessey, the man who taught her what it was like to be a woman yet is a ruthless, cold blooded killer. Or Ellis Leyton the detective, undecided whether she is Hennessey's accomplice or his victim.

An abused, desperate runaway. A naïve but stout hearted tourist. A ruthless, determined killer. An embittered, jaded ex cop. All cross paths in this story of trust and betrayal, truth and deceit, revenge and love.

The Murder of Susan Reed (The Val & Kit Mystery Series) by Patricia Obermeier Neuman
This is No. 2 in The Val & Kit Mystery Series. When Kit suspects Larry of having an affair with one of his employees, Susan Reed, she enlists Val's help in uncovering the truth. The morning after a little stalking expedition by the lifelong friends, Val reads in the newspaper that Susan Reed was found shot to death in her apartment the night before, right around the time Kit was so certain Larry and Susan were together. Were they having an affair? And did Larry murder her? The police, in the form of dishy Detective Dennis Culotta, conduct the investigation into Susan's murder, hampered at times by Val and Kit's insistent attempts to discover whether Larry is guilty of infidelity and/or murder. As the investigation heats up, so does Val's relationship with Detective Culotta. Val and Kit and their shenanigans can also be found in No. 1 and No. 3 in The Val & Kit Mystery Series, THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MAVIS WOODSTOCK and DEATH IN DOOR COUNTY.

Biscay, I would like to ditto your post. I'm also guilty of being a non starter and I greatly appreciate any start, they are all great to me.

Sandy, good luck with getting a new job, thanks for the great start, hope Chris had a Happy Birthday, and most importantly hope your ankle is healed.

THE BRIDGE TO CARACAS is Volume one of THE KING TRILOGY, an epic story, spanning four tumultuous decades, of an inconvenient fortune and its catastrophic affect on a loving family.

Stephen Douglass's knowledge of the Oil and Gas Industry is woven into a plot similar to John Grisham's tales of lawyers, judges, and the law. Both are terrific at storytelling at a brisk pace coming with a knowledgeable background. You will be educated as to the Oil and Gas Industry, especially the dark side of money making, and entertained by a romantic, engaging action story. This book belongs in a class with "Unbroken", "Lost in Shangri-La", "In the Garden of the Beasts", and other five star books that I have enjoyed this summer. (5 star review)

Jim Servito shatters the hopes and aspirations of star-crossed lovers, Mike King and Karen Taylor, while simultaneously engineering a grand theft ranking as one of the largest and most audacious in Canadian and U.S. history. Cynical and remorselessly ruthless, he possesses a brilliant criminal mind, has enormous contempt for the law, police, governments, and the system in which they function. He assumes rules are for fools, and takes sadistic pleasure in breaking them. Using The Peace Bridge as his fulcrum, he steals $325,000,000 from the U.S. and Canadian governments, steals enormous quantities of gasoline by illegally installing valves in Golden National's Buffalo refinery, then murders everyone who can implicate him.

The setting is storybook perfect. The beautiful daughter of wealthy parents meets the handsome son of middle class parents. The two fall in love and assume they will marry and live happily ever after. History would prove their assumption wrong. Cruel twists of fate and the wrath of Jim Servito combine to prescribe a horrible nightmare for the two lovers, one that grows in intensity and ultimately leads them to prison, then a life and death confrontation with Servito in Caracas.

Karen Taylor, tired of life in private school for girls, the endless doting of her wealthy parents, and the monotony of constant female company, wants out, to experience the real world, preferably on her own. Her priorities lead her to an endless love affair with Mike King, but his marriage to another woman leads her to a disastrous marriage to Jim Servito.

But Elizabeth the Sweetest Honeybee, even if it were necessary to do so, you make up for the lack of starting in SO many other ways :)

Did you have a nice visit with your sister? I think you said you were seeing each other yesterday - or maybe today...

Edited - I'm nipping off now so have a good day either way, and a good day/night to all :D

Elizabeth, I think Chris had a pretty good day.. Didn't have to work, and spent the day on the computer, reading and watching Stargate SG1...

I do think my ankle is getting better but it has a way to go before "healed" is the word to describe it..
How are things on your home front?

My mom told the joke about God being missing at church last night..

Snowlady Sandy Shops
What a terrific start to the day.
Good luck with your job hunt.

Loved your meltdown yesterday. I am betting that the rooms are clean but everyone was fed.

Out the door and on my way home.
