"Steve Anderson" wrote:Hi all. New guy here. I just started Field Gray by Philip Kerr. If you're not familiar, his Bernie Gunther series is historical espionage/crime noir. In this one former Berlin detective Gunther has to come clean about his role in WWII, and the story switches between the 1940s and 1950s. Like it so far. It's already better than his last one and definitely my kind of read.


Hi Steve, welcome. Always nice to see a new face here.

I shall be starting Althea by Madeleine E Robins later on today, a Librarything Early Reviewer ebook. It looks like it's a little similar to a Georgette Heyer.
currently reading: My Books on Goodreads

Finishing up The Farthest Eden by Louise O'Flaherty (old Los Angeles) and then plan to dig into Columbia by Pamela Jekel. Set in the Pacific Northwest and the Columbia River. From the jacket fluff it looks like it winds up with the building of the Grand Coulee Dam.

Finished Kate Quinn's 'Daughters of Rome' yesterday which I highly recommend, a really good book. Can't wait to see what Kate's next book will be :) As I've got so many Dynasty books on Mt tbr, I've started 'The Hidden Shore' by Cynthia Harrod Eagles.

Read Beth Patillo's Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart today, and to be honest, didn't care for it much. Just too predictable. Grumble. Not sure of what's next at the moment.

Columbia by Pamela Jekel. About the Columbia River of the Pacific Northwest. Has a river ever had a *biography* before?
