Labor Day Weekend

Good morning Sunday Saloners! I was up before the sun today. My husband left to go tuna fishing and I couldn't get back to sleep so decided to get up and enjoy a little peaceful time.

I finished this book at the beach on Friday. Very cool story! It takes place in the present and in the 1830's. How the two eras connect makes for a fascinating read.

I especially enjoyed learning about the medical practices of almost 200 years ago. Cleanliness was nonexitent and diseases and infections ran rampant through hospitals. Childbirth was so dangerous.

I think I've read all of Tess Gerritsen's novels, now, and am looking forward to her next one. She knows how to tell a good story!

Tess Gerritsen is one of my favorite authors as well. I too am waiting to read The Keepsake

I was up early yesterday too, although I admit I took an afternoon nap to make up for it--a luxury I only get to enjoy on the weekends, unfortunately.

I enjoy reading Tess Gerritsen's books too, although I haven't read too many yet. I'm working on it though!

Have a great week, Linda!

I've never read any of Tess Gerritsen but you sure do make them sound good. I may have to give one a try-any favorites?
