"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Ellison may be born into the country club set, but she isn’t there willingly! She is trying to break out of the obedient housewife mold and has already made a name for herself with her art (which annoys her mother to no end)!
I was thrilled to see detective Anarchy Jones and attorney Hunter Taft return. They are both interested in Ellison but she doesn’t think she is ready to date. This is a wonderful murder mystery with a very likeable main character and some fun secondary characters which make for a great book! I’m anxiously awaiting the release of Clouds in my Coffee #3!
So she is attending a football game to root for her daughter and friends. Suddenly, she drops her lipstick under the bleachers. She starts digging around for it…after all, it was an expensive brand she bought in Paris. Imagine her surprise to discover a boy, who turns out to be Bobby Lowell, one of Grace’s friends, bleeding to death. He whispers to her: “Tell her I love her.”
Who did he mean? And who would have shot Bobby? These and other questions drive Ellison to do what she seems compelled to do: find answers.
But more bodies turn up before the end of Guaranteed to Bleed (The Country Club Murders Book 2), along with a few disastrous secrets that could have motivated any number of people to kill Bobby and others. Why is Jonathan Hess, India’s new husband, and daughter Donna’s stepfather, such a bully, pushing his way into her home after a sleepover? What led Grace and Donna to run away, hiding out as if they have secrets they couldn’t tell?
The returning characters from Book One included Anarchy Jones, the homicide detective; Hunter Taftt, the attorney who has his eye on Ellison; her mother Frances, whose glares could wither anyone who crossed her; and Ellison’s best friend Libba.
Set in the 1970s, I enjoyed the reminders of that era like landlines and payphones, as well as mentions of Watergate and Nixon. The humorous and somewhat snarky voice of our first person narrator, Ellison, kept me turning pages, trying to guess what might happen next. Another delightful read from the author. 4.5 stars.
