    "Born in Fire and Ice" was a very good read, I'm anxiously awaiting the second book in the series.

    I'm now reading "Moon Over Manifest" by Claire Vanderpool.

    I've read that series on and off for years. It is a bit steamy.

    I started "In the Woods" by Tana French, and I'm most of the way through it. It's quite good.

    I finished "In the Woods" and already bought the second book in the series. Yesterday I started "Camino Island" by John Grisham. Sadly, it isn't another "A Time to Kill" or "The Last Juror."

    Just finished "Killers of the Flower Moon" about the systematic killings of members of the Osage tribe in the 1920's for their oil money. On to something lighter.

    "The Breaking Point". One of the body farm books.

    Somehow I missed it when it came out. So far so good.

    Just bought "in The Woods" sounds good. mmoetc-would you recommend Killers of the Flower Moon. I have considered it, but haven't purchased yet?

    Thanks

    Disclaimer- I seldom buy a book anymore. That's what my library card is for.

    I found it to be an interesting read. It gave me some insight into a time and culture I wasn't really familiar with. It wasn't a compelling page turner to me but I never felt like I had to force my way through it. Hope that helps.

    I finished Camino Island, and it was not one of John Grisham's best work. I started The Dead Zone by Stephen King. I read it years ago, but it just came out on Audible, and it's read by James Franco. Had to read it again.
