Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

Good Story to Listen to

The Christmas Mystery: A Detective Luc Moncrief Mystery (BookShots) - James Patterson, Richard DiLallo

I borrowed the audio version of this story because I am trying to work on handcrafted items (a blanket for my nephew, a hat for a friend's son, etc). I also cannot have the tv on during the day hours because the kids would not do school work because they are too busy watching tv. I assign the work and then they are to do the work and I check the work (later that night before I go to bed). 

 

Luc Moncrief is a Frenchman who is a detective in New York. He and his partner Kay Burke are called right before Christmas to solve the murder of a socialite Baby D. Moncrief notices that the paintings are forgeries, but just before they can collect them and have them tested, they are taken from the apartment, that was guarded by police. 

 

Then they try something else and Moncrief follows the driver that he thinks is to blame for the missing artwork. They also go to Paris, France where Moncrief's father has just died. He wants to see a report on his father's death and is told that there isn't one. 

 

On the whole, it was two mysteries and two good stories. I enjoyed the audio and may borrow the book at a later time to actually read it for myself.
