Yes, I'm nearly done with "Point of Origin". These books also follow a story line with the characters. It's interesting. Some of it a lot of technical jargon, but toward the end it is picking up speed. I may have gotten this novel out of sequence because someone keeps popping up dead and non-dead, book to book.
I get my books (soft cover) from Friends of the Library, so I have a supply also. $.25 apiece. I don't like romace novels either. I like the book to have a thickness to it. I like a good spy story, action is good, archeology with historical information. I used to like the old science fiction stories, the new ones are kind of technical again. If I get a hold of one of those, I'm guilty of skimming over the jargon.
If you see The Eight, check it out. Female heroine! and quite a bit of adventure. Only thing about me still agile is my mind (I hope). I have a few of the authors you mention in my bookshelf. Oh I remeber ones I like, the stories, mysteries, took place in Minnesota. Will have to think on who the author was. This is good exercise. Will keep my eye open and see if I can snare that name.
I don't think I have read any Grafton books. Will have to check those out also.
Good to hear from you. By now you have probably finished "Point of Origin". I'm still working on my book. I was busy at the park yesterday raking the children's play area. Today I plan on some tv catch up and reading. I noticed that with a lot of mystery writers they tend to write books in series form. I've been checking www.fantasticfiction.com to make sure I keep the books in order. It's a very helpful website. You can also find out when your favorite authors latest book is coming out.
I don't mind romance as long as there is some kind of story to it besides the romance. Harlequin books are too much like those paperbacks with the man and woman locked in an embrace unable to keep their hands off each other. I like the romance books by Maeve Binchy whose stories tell a lot about Ireland. I also enjoy Nicholas Sparks, Kristin Hannah, LaVryle Spencer, Mary Alice Monroe and a few others because though there is always a romance there is usually much more going on in the story. I'm not into science fiction books. I do own "Starship Troopers". I saw the movie and thought I might read the book one day. I enjoy the mysteries and every now and then I will read a non-fiction book. I enjoy reading about the civil war and WWII.
I will have to look for "The Eight" at my 1/2 price book store. I don't buy anything until it turns up on the bargain shelf there for $1.00. You might try putting Minnesota mystery writers into a google search and see if you recognize the name of the author.
Well, a few more messages and then I'm off to read.
Have a great day.
