Ann Purser's Lois Meade series was okay. She's a house cleaner in a small village in England. Her titles were by the days of the week with Sunday just coming out in hardcover and she's then starting on numbers. That's probably it for me on this series.
Karen MacInerney's Gray Whale Inn series was okay and had a couple interesting recipes.
J. A. Hitchcock was nonfiction about computer security and how to stay safe online.
Kate Forsyth's conclusion of her fantasy trilogy was pretty good though I'm very glad it's over!
Justine Larbalestier's trilogy was not bad. A glaring math error in the Fibonacci series was a big turn-off in the first book. I wanted more information on how her magic system worked. It seemed to work differently at certain times in order to add drama and suspense to the story.
John Sandford's continuation of his Prey books was pretty good as Lucas Davenport searches for another serial killer.
Susan Beth Pfeffer had a very thought-provoking YA novel. Do you have emergency plans if a disaster strikes in your neighborhood? In this book, an asteroid moved the moon into a closer orbit affecting tides and climate.
Bill Pronzini's Quincannon & Carpenter short stories was okay.
