Kel McGowan is Kelligrafie
This is book 16 of the 52AZ challenge. Still on track. In fact I've even slipped a couple of short stories in there on top. This week it was the turn of The Julius House by Charlaine Harris, in what I think is a murder series starring Aurora Teagarden (nickname Roe) in the place of what would be Angela Lansbury or Dick Van Dyke. So someone who's had no formal training in homicide investigations, yet happens to be an absolute sleuth.
She doesn't have a job because her very rich friend died and left her a lot of money (convenient). Her fiancee is the perfect husband (surprise) but with a dark past (you don't say) and her mother is a strong divorced independent woman (shocker). She also has what appears to be a different set of glasses for every day of the week, which as a speccy myself is probably the most unbelievable aspect of the book. I have two pairs not including old pairs which I've kept in case my normal and spare glasses both get damaged. Sorry Charlaine Harris, but this reader isn't buying any of this.
The Julius House is by no means a bad book (try reading Vellum... on second thoughts don't read Vellum) but it's not anything special. Roe seriously needs a job or a hobby or friends that aren't the same age as her mother.
Tomorrow I'm start the 'I' section but I haven't chosen my books yet so I haven't got a clue who and what I'm reading!
