First Line: There were probably, Nan thought as she walked into the Spring Hill Inn, a thousand more odious ways to spend an August Saturday night.

L.A. Attorney Nan Robinson returns to her hometown of Spring Hill, Illinois for her twentieth high school reunion. She is surprised to see the Class Tramp Brenda Blaine waltz in. Although she is surprised by Brenda even showing up, she is completely unprepared when Brenda is murdered just outside the reunion. Instincts set in and Nan can’t help but want to solve the murder herself. What she finds out will be the surprise of a lifetime and some things that a lot of surprising people want to keep hidden forever.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a quick and easy read. It was a great break from what I consider the heavier books that I’ve been reading lately. I usually don’t like books like this, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little change in pace. Besides, I thouroughly found myself enjoying this one. And I was very shocked with the ending! Very good book!!

Okay, even I can’t read ALL the time, so I’m guessing that you folks might voluntarily shut the covers from time to time as well… What else do you do with your leisure to pass the time? Walk the dog? Knit? Run marathons? Construct grandfather clocks? Collect eggshells?


This is my first week doing the BTT! Here goes nothing: Other than reading, what do I do to pass my time? Hmm …

  1. I spend a lot (way too much, in fact) of time on the internet messing around with my blog here as well as on paperbackswap.
  2. I also belong to numerous Yahoo groups and get thousands of recipes in my email, so I love to go through those and see what new ones I can try.
  3. I also enjoy cooking. I like to experiment on my husband! Trust me, he appreciates it! Haha!
  4. Watching TV and movies. The only reality show I can stomach is American Idol. I generally prefer dramas over comedies.
  5. Spending some time with my husband. Between our work schedules time together is treasured. Unfortunately it’s not going to be getting any better, as he’s going to start a new job next week and will be commuting an hour each way until we can get moved and settled. And then I’ll be the one commuting an hour each way because I’m not leaving my job. So we really don’t see much of each other through the week, and any time we get together is very important to us.
  6. I like to organize my books. I know it sounds weird, but I like to alphabatize them every once in a while. I like to make lists; I am totally a Type A personality!
  7. I also like to play video games occasionally. I love my Wii! I also like to play Guitar Hero. I don’t play very often, though. I get sick of it really easily.
  8. And finally, I love to do word puzzles. I like to buy those big huge Puzzler’s Giant Books put out by PennyPress. Sometimes I even order backorders from them when I see a good deal!
