Holy Shit: Gene Logsdon

Humorous though very informative, this book deals with the importance on manure and how to use it to make the richest land possible. A great reference book with amusing historical references.

Buried Evidence: Nancy Taylor Rosenburg

Good reviews, not a very good book, I think I have read other things of hers and they annoy me, first off the story line is just a way to work in the characters getting it on, and there is no way any daughter would get away acting that way to her mom and still get her college and car and allowance- how many parents do any of those three things, let alone all of them?? Hard to get finish reading.

The Monsters of Templeton: Lauren Groff

An excellent book. I wasn't sure what to expect with the title, but it was great. The story weaves in and out of Willie's ancestors lives and the true monster is revealed. The book sets a good pace and in genuinely enjoyable. A woman who believes she is pregnant comes home to her mother and learns alot about her mother and her town. Oh, and a lake monster dies...?

Cruel and Unusual: Patricia Cornwell

A scandal that goes straight up to the Governor who was having an affair when someone murdered his girlfriend. Weeks before the murder is executed the governor releases another prisoner to track down a brief case he had left at his murdered girlfriend's house and was picked up by the murderer. Thinking the case would have been found some ten years ago he deletes all the released prisoners info in order to have him fetch it. He wasn't counting on the prisoner becoming a killer on the loose.

All That Remains: Patricia Cornwell

Another exciting unpredictable story with Kay Scarpetta. Interesting turns and ideas as well as shocking deaths when the killer is about to get away with the crime. The killer is disturbingly unknown throughout the book and being a bibliophile myself, quite creepy. Targeting couples, the crimes come to a head when the drug crime solving czar's daughter is murdered. At first they think it must be a gang's doing, then realize it was someone much more simple who hadn't known the girl's identity.
