My 2 star review of A Cajun Christmas Killing (Cajun Country Mystery #3) by Ellen Byron:-

Spoiler:
I don't know why I keep getting back to this author's work. I think the main reason is that she can write up a goodhearted main character with authenticity. But that is not enough.

Or should I say, enough is enough. I'm going to move on and not look back this time. There were so many people to keep track of. When it came time to unveiling the murderer, I found myself confronting a stranger.

Books like this don't deserve a price tag online. But the writer obviously has found her crowd. Try as I might, I cannot conjure what her readers see in her books. I've been duped for the last time. It's time to say goodbye.

It had been quite a while since I looked up new books by Eric Flint. He has been a busy guy, in spite of surviving spleen cancer. A LOT of new books in the Ring of Fire (1632) universe and...

Two sequels to "The Course of Empire". "The Crucible of Empire" (published 2010, I did say it's been a while) and "The Span of Empire" (published 2016). There's also a short story "Bringer of Fire" (published 2016) that goes between the first two books.

Due to the death of KD Wentworth there were delays to book 3 while Eric found a new co-author, David Carrico.

The first book has the Jao conquering Earth, though Humans are putting up the fiercest resistance they've ever met. Don't they understand its for their own good? Nevermind the Jao don't bother to mention the existential threat posed by the Ekhat until it's almost too late.

In the second book a new (though very well known to the Jao centuries ago) sapient species is found and saved from the Ekhat, even if they don't want to be saved.

The third book expands Jao and Human exploration to very far flung places, and to a revelation that will make the fight for survival of all non-Ekhat in the galaxy a very imminent and urgent one.

This was his fighter group that was based at East Wretham near Thetford, England. My father was on one page with a photo. The incident described was on December 23, 1944. He flew a P-51 Mustang with the name Beachcomber (Our hometown is a beach place in NJ).

I am listening to Mary Trump's Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man. Audio books are not my favorite means of reading, but I have an account this year and had 5 credits. I can buy 4 more and quit. I'm about halfway through. The author is the reader.
I finished Too Much and Never Enough this morning. I have a better feeling about listening to audio books now and may keep my subscription up. I still prefer kindle books though. I don't think that political talk is permitted here, so I won't say much. She clarified what I already knew and now I have no tolerance for all of his complicit aides, cabinet, senators and voters. Earllier today he read from the teleprompter and pronounced Thailand "Thighland." Two days ago it was "Yo Smite" instead of Yosemite. OK, that's all for now and feel free to delete my post if it is "inappropriate" for its political content.

Not sure, but I think my next read (to start in an hour or so) will be Lawrence Wright's pandemic novel, The End of October.

Good but surprisingly short.

Next up: A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton. I got this as a freebie from Fictionwise way back in February 2010.
