After finishing "Beachcomber" by Josephine Cox I decided if that was the best my bookshelf had to offer, I had better head off to the library.
So, Monday I got home from work and then remembered I didn't go to the library. Tuesday as I left work I remembered I didn't have my library card. Wednesday I actually left my whole purse at home - naughty naughty driving without my driver's licence and finally today I got there and borrowed 3 books.
None of the books on my "books to read list" were actually available so I grabbed one off the new book shelf and then found a shelf and picked 2 more.
I'm starting with "Be Mine" by Laura Kasischke - 'a compelling, erotic thriller about what happens when the boundaries of acceptable behaviour with family and friends are pushed to the edge'.
Sherry feels that something in her life is missing. She is a respected college professor, her adored only son has finally left home, and although she has a happy, solid marriage with her husband, how exciting is sex after twenty years with the same man?
When, on Valentine's Day, she finds an anonymous love note in her locker - BE MINE - she is flattered. As the notes continue to appear she becomes intrigued. But it's when she believes she has discovered the identity of the sender that she starts to play a dangerous and ultimately deadly game with those closest to her.
Here's one review and another . Don't read them if you don't like too much information about a book tho.
There are also bookclub reading notes available online...always a plus when you're looking for a book for bookclub.
I'd like to think I'll start it tonight but I think I'll be asleep early - a change in plans for the eldest son and his friend meant he rang at 2.30 this morning needing to be picked up. I'm pleased that finally he believed me when I said I would rather be woken up than have him walk home or wait around for a bus...yay how many times have I said that for it to sink in.
