Eclipse and Ice Cold

It's been crazy around here!  First I had company for three days.  My MIL, son, his girlfriend, my daughter and granddaughter, Kylie, all descended on us at the campground.  We had a blast eating, swimming, boating, and enjoying each other's company.  There was no time to read, that's for sure!

Everyone left after 3 days except for Kylie and she stayed another 6 days.  She's a great kid and never fusses or misbehaves but Grammy is just getting too old! She wants to go, go, go all the time and I don't blame her!  Wish I had more energy!

A few times I let her play games on the computer so I could sit next to her and read.  That was nice, quiet time for us.  I managed to finish Eclipse.

It was okay.  I guess this is another area where I'm just too old.  I got kind of bored with it.  I've downloaded the fourth book in this series but need a break before I read it.  I'll tell you, I really got bogged down in this one and didn't think I'd ever get through it.  I'm glad I persevered but I'm definitely not gaga over it like my niece, Michelle.  It's nice to be able to discuss it with her, though.  And I'm certainly going to see the movie.

I've read all of Tess Gerritsen's novels and loved them all.  This one was no exception.  It was a pleasant break from all that teenage angst!   
This one involves Maura Isles who goes to Wyoming for a forensic pathologist convention and meets up with a former classmate.  Unhappy with her present relationship, she agrees to go on a skiing adventure with him and several other people.  On their way they slip off the road during a raging snowstorm and end up fighting for their lives against the elements and a group of religious fanatics. 

Maura's friend Jane Rizzoli and her FBI husband search for her and try to figure out what is going on in this isolated valley.

I definitely give this one a thumbs up!

I took Kylie home yesterday, my husband has gone fishing, and, now, it's time for me to relax and recuperate!

Oh my, it has been crazy at your place! I'm sure Kylie could run most of us ragged. lol. Kids never seem to run out of energy - wish they could bottle that and sell it. I'm glad you had a great time with family and Kylie.

I've only listened to one of Gerritsen's novels and really liked it. I wouldn't mind trying more of them. Glad you liked this one.
