The CW’s The Vampire Diaries finally debuted last week. While I liked it, they’ve taken vampire diariesliberties with the story. Elena is now not only brunette instead of blond but also a much softer version than in the initial books of L.J. Smith’s series. She’s also got a troubled younger teen brother instead of a much-younger sister, and Matt and Vicky are now brother and sister instead of classmates. And only one of Elena’s two best friends, Bonnie, appears in the TV series, and she doesn’t look anything like I pictured her. Meredith is nowhere to be found. But, having said all that, I’m willing to overlook early episodes in a series and give it time. After all, early episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer were a little clunky …

This is the third, and so far final, installment in the Black CAT books by Leslie Parrish, and I’m really hoping there will be more because I hate to see this series end.

Wyatt Blackstone and the rest of his team are devastated by the senseless death of one of their own – Lily Fletcher. Despite working on some pretty horrendous cases, Lily was a sweet young woman who knew way too much about loss. So much so that it colored her world, and affected the way she did her job. Even though she had been walking a dangerous path, there was still no reason she should have died. She was one of the good ones…

But on a bitterly …

I’ve been sacked.  Again.

Those are words Daisy Merrick has uttered more times than she can count in her twenty-eight years, due mostly to her outspoken ways.  Mostly, but not always.  This time she is sacked because she spurned her boss’s appalling proposition.  No doubt her sister Lucy would’ve handled the situation more diplomatically, but not Daisy – “But you’re so old!”  (I love it!!)  On the way home, Daisy believes that it is fate that prompts the omnibus to halt directly in front of Marlowe Publishing, the company owned by her friend, Viscount Marlowe.  You see, Daisy has always wanted to be a published writer.  Having plenty of completed but unpublished manuscripts, she figures that …

For all intents and purposes the summer is over and now we can begin to organize our lives. Some of us are starting school, or our children are going back to school. Some of us may be starting new jobs, or looking for new jobs. Many of us are bringing out our warm sweaters as well as sleeping with extra blankets. A new season means new adventures as well as the commencement of seasonal rituals. One autumn ritual I always observe is checking out what’s new on TV.  As per usual, I’ll be watching ALL the new shows being produced this year. I’m always curious to see what the networks and producers come up with and what they think we’ll like.  To that end I always give each show a …

blood_robertsBlood Brothers by Nora Roberts
1st book in The Sign of Seven Trilogy
Publisher Penguin

September’s Mystery Book is: Blood Brothers. This is the first book in Nora Roberts’ Sign of Seven Trilogy. I loved this series. All three books, Blood Brothers, The Hollow and The Pagan Stone have what you come to expect and love in a Nora Roberts paranormal trilogy; suspense, action, mystery, deep abiding friendship, a well defined story arc with a solid mythology and romance. A great book and a great series, one I highly recommend.

“In the small village of Hawkins Hollow, three best friends who share the same birthday sneak off into the woods for a sleepover the evening before turning 10. But a night of pre-pubescent celebration turns into a night
