Still Life by Louise Penny — Latest Read

I am getting caught up on both the Bosch and DCI Ryan series that I have been reading, so thought I would look for another mystery series. Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series was recommended and available on KU, so I decided to check it out.
Worry B Gone by Chris Stapleton

Worry B Gone — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is Worry B Gone by Chris Stapleton from his 2020 album Starting Over. This performance is a recent appearance by Stapleton on Late Night with Seth Myers.

Citadel by Marko Kloos — Latest Read

Just finished up Citadel by Marko Kloos, book 3 in his Palladium Wars series. Kloss is known for his military science fiction Frontlines series. All three books have been quick reads. Kloos tends to leave each with key elements unanswered. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Fixer Upper Welcome Home — What We’re Watching

Borderlands — Latest Read

Just finished Borderlands by LJ Ross, Book 14 in the DCI Ryan series. As always in a DCI Ryan story, this story features a stunning setting in Northumberland in the United Kingdom. This time the primary setting is the Otterburn Training Area, a military facility in the Northumberland National Park. The story highlighted the Cheviots, a range of rolling hills straddling the Anglo-Scottish border between Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
