#25 Shop till You Drop by Elaine Viets

This is another new author to me and the first read of the Dead End Job series. I was delighted with the characters and plot of this story. The women that shop the store remind me of the Shopaholic series type with serious attitude. I will definitely be picking up more reads by this author. This gets a 5/5.

#24 The Penguin Who Knew Too Much by Donna Andrews

This is a new author to me and this mystery was whimsical and funny. From the zoo animals being hauled in more and more each day to Meg's exasperation over the whole ordeal, this was a great read. I give it a 4.5/5

#23 Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

This book was awful, in a great way! The last 40 pages of the book were a waterfall for me. Towards the last 20 I started to get a grip but then the waterworks were on again. This story reminds me so much of a friendship I have with my closest girlfriend that I can't imagine getting older and one of us losing each other. I would recommend this book to anyone with heart. I look forward to reading others by this author. Definitely a 5/5.
