BOOK OF THE WEEK
My book of the week is SOME LIKE IT HOT BUTTERED by Jeffery Cohen.
Laugh-out-loud funny, with a great mystery. The murder is "off the page" so there is no gore, and the "romance" part is sweet.
I love the "voice" of this writer. He's smart, funny, and great at portraying believable characters. I love his references to old movies. Now I'll have to request them from the library.
His humor was perfect for me. The arctic blast, hobbling on a cast, and my DH gone for a week had put me in a winter funk. This book lifted me right out. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered his other books, too. I need some humor in my life.
I checked and they have all of his books at our library, too.
Have some fun and check out this new-to-me author.
UPDATE: Jeffery Cohen is blogging today. Check it out.
