What Am I Reading Now?

Well, I closed The Eagle of the Ninth with a very contented sigh, and promptly ordered three more Rosemary Sutcliff books. I'm a little worried from the movie trailers that The Eagle is going to deviate from one of my favorite parts of the book, but I'm willing to give it a chance to come out right in the end. (Hopefully I'm off to see it this Friday!)

While I'm waiting for my Amazon order to come in, I'm reading a light LDS mystery called Dearly Departed, by Tristi Pinkston. I'll be reviewing this book for Tristi's blog tour in March, so check back for that.

Here the back cover blurb for Dearly Departed:

Ida Mae Babbit has done her community service and is a reformed woman--no more law-breaking for her. But when Artlette's granddaughter Eden discovers a mystery in a fancy nursing home, Ida Mae--with the perfect excuse of a broken wrist and a broken ankle--checks herself into the place. After all, it is for the greater good. Soon she's buzzing around in her motorized wheelchair, questioning the residents and swiping files from the office. She's bound and determined to get to the bottom of this case. But can she solve the mystery before she becomes the next victim?

Stop by next Tuesday to read a Tuesday Teaser from Dearly Departed.

This sounds like a good read. I've read Tristi's Agent in Old Lace--this one sounds just as good.

Tina, I haven't read any of Tristi's books before, but without giving away any specifics (which I must save for the blog tour), I'm quite enjoying Dearly Departed.

Tristi's books are awesome and so is she and so are you, Joyce! :) Happy reading.
