No One Left to Tell – Karen Rose

Review written by Kaetrin

Narrated by Marguerite Gavin

Paige Holden is a trainee Private Investigator working pro bono for Maria Munoz, the mother of Ramon, currently in prison for the murder of a woman six years earlier.

Packing for Vacation

Monday, June 6th, 2011

book.case Ah, summer reading! Who doesn’t love it? And of course, vacation reading is an important part of the joy of summer.

With my Kindle, it should be easy to pack for the trip. Simply slide the Kindle into suitcase and go. But after considerable thought I decided that that would not be the route I’d be taking this year. Yes, the Kindle will be going but a mid-size bag of books will be going too.

The reason is pretty simple. I am sick of my TBR. It has long since ceased to be a pile, has expanded beyond a shelf, then shelves, and is looming into a room. I don’t have a room to devote to it. So several books from my “pile” will be joining me on this trip.

Looking over the shelves determining which of these books will be coming with me has not all been easy. I knew two right off the bat. Bound to Love Her by Esri Rose has been sitting on the shelf since 2008. As part of my Unofficial AAR Forums Reading Challenge (11 in 2011) it has to come with me. I’ve made several false starts with this one and it will be good to finally finish it and drop it in a bag to head to the UBS.
