    11. Cheap shot - Ace Adkins - 7.5/10 - OK read but not near as good as the Robert Parker written books 10. Stone Cold - Robert Parker - 8/10 - Typical good reading like all his books 9. Witching You Were Here - Amanda M. Lee - 8/10 - My favorite so far of the Witches of the Midwest series. Good reading and and hilarious at times. The husbands of the divorced sisters start to come into play and the daughters are unsure of how to accept them. Witchery is really showing its colors. I had to laugh when Aunt Tillie got mad at Thistle and put a curse on her so that none of her clothes would fit. I am now starting to read The Shepherd's Crown by Terry Pratchett. I can't believe that I haven't read this book but can't find any record of having read it. Hope I don't get half through and realize that I had already read it.

  9. I finished Witching You Were Here by Amanda M. Lee. This is book #3 in the series Witches of the Midwest. This was my favorite of the 3 that I have read. The personality of Aunt Tillie is coming more and more to the forefront and the series has a lot of hilarious moments. There is also some hanky-panky occurring by the cousins.....Bay, Thistle, and Clove. I am getting a better understanding of the "Winchester" family of witches and how they practice their magic.

    The latest "Flavia" book picks up steam towards the latter part of the book. I may try reading some more of the Durrell books, will look to see what is available. I still have a lot of Wicked Witches of the Midwest to get through. I may take a break from witches once through reading them. I think there are 10 or 11 in the series. Over the years I have requested the library to buy books that I wanted to read. The library would then send me an email if they bought one of my recommendations....or so I thought. They have a place to show all the books that I have on loan and on hold. What I didn't know until just today was there is a place where they show "all' the books that I have requested, and behold, there are about 5 or 6 that they bought that I was not aware of. I feel like I won the lottery.

    The start of the ice skating has been great. The ice dancing has been beautiful and the Canadian couple put on a wonderful performance. I also was stunned by the Superslope snowboard competition. They gotta be crazy to perform those stunts. Red Gerard of the U.S. won gold with his outstanding run.

    Agree, the whole family has certainly become forthcoming in their behavior. I kinda like Thistle but am not enamored of Landon (although I am sure he will turn out ok). I am now reading "Witching You Were Here" and it is hilarious. Book 10 is not on sale here but I bought books 4.5, & 6 as a set for $8.99.

    May I throw it back to you. What change in tone did you notice. Aunt Tillie is more in the picture in book 2 . I am now starting book 3 and maybe I will notice more of a change. I gave it a 8/10 rating but it still wasn't as good as the earlier books, although I did enjoy it.. There is a change coming to the story lines. I bought the book as I couldn't wait for the library to get it. Were there any other Gerald Durrell books you enjoyed?
