Just finished The Husband List by Janet Evanovich & Dorien Kelly. Not fabulous, but a fun, quick read.

Talking of Evanovich, she's collaborated with Lee Goldberg (TV writer and author of the tie-in books to the TV series Monk) on a book which comes out in HBack in June, and they're already on the second.

Meet Kate Winslow - beautiful, street-wise and resourceful. A woman who is used to getting things done, and getting them done her way. After all, she's an ex-Navy seal.

Now she's in the FBI where, like a guided missile, she always gets her target. Meet Danny Cole - irrevent, gorgeous and wealthy bad boy who loves his work...which is pulling off high-profile, high-risk cons all over the world. And never getting caught. Put the two together and it's an explosive mix.

Kate has been trying to trap Danny for five years, has even put a bullet in his shoulder. And now she thinks she's got him...or has she? Blue skies, romance, crime and adventure all rolled into one fast-paced, heart-stopping thriller of a novel. Winslow and Cole : dynamic, diverse, dedicated, dangerous - and desirable.

I like Lee's work. The Monk books were terrific.

Still working my way through the Jeeves and Wooster books by PG Wodehouse but as a break read Painting With Annigoni by Dawn Cookson, an interesting description of life in 1950/60's life in Florence by one of Annigoni's pupils
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Just finished The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell. Not the kind of book I'd normally choose to read. It's not exactly a cheery subject. But I've got to say it was excellent!

I think there are loads of books out there and when you pick them up you think No not my thing, but if you were to read them you would think more than half were excellent, but it's taking the plunge so to speak.... :D

Soul Music has a huge amount of musical references, so of which I'm sorry to say still go right over my head! :oops:
