Sorry I missed last week. I was at DragonCon in Atlanta and that had priority over everything else. I will say I got to see Patricia Briggs of Mercy Thompson fame and I caught myself wanting to stay in the room re-reading her books instead of going to panels. Fortunately, there were a lot of lines to wait in, so I still had time to read.
This week’s quote is from the new Eve Dallas book by J. D. Robb: Apprentice in Death. I love Eve and Roarke and it’s hard to believe this is book forty-three. I don’t know if that includes the novellas she has also released or not, but that is one prolific author.
Anyway, Eve is investigating the murder of an OB/GYN and he has numerous photos in his home of babies he has delivered. Eve’s reaction is definitely not “Awww. How sweet.”
Many of the babies — the really fresh ones — struck her as creepy. They either looked like fish, or really pissed-off alien life-forms.
You know, she has a point.
I finished the book in three days and it only took that long because I had to work. I cannot wait for retirement!
