Curse of the Spellmans - Lisa Lutz

This is an excellent book for those who think their families are dysfunctional. You'll quickly discover just how normal you are. Lutz managed to top her first Spellman novel with this one. I look forward to many more. Highly recommended.

Hollywood Station - Joseph Wambaugh

This is an excellent cop story about policing in Hollywood. There are lots of characters, some cops and some crooks. The plot thread is salted with interesting short stories along the way to a satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended.

Plum Lucky - Janet Evanovich

This is another Stephanie Plum story. It's short but sweet. The question becomes how many hot men can Stephanie juggle at once? I almost got a friend of mine, who only reads T.V. Guide and stamp and coin collector magazines, to read this one by quoting the last line in the book, "Diesel was gone...and so was my bra." He's waiting for the movie :) Highly recommended.

Creation in Death - J.D. Robb

A novel featuring Lt. Eve Dallas is always worth the read. This time it's personal and comes right down to the wire. I enjoy reading Nora Roberts in any guise. Very highly recommended.
