I've had a cold for the past few days, and spent yesterday lying on the couch reading.
I finished The Body in the Ivy , Katherine Hall Page's latest Faith Fairchild mystery.
It's an homage to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None , the story about 10 people stranded on an island with a murderer. In Page's book, Faith is hired to cater a mini-reunion of college friends on an island owned by a reclusive writer known as Barbara Baily Bishop. Bishop's twin sister died after their college graduation. Certain it was a murder, she's lured the "old gang" to the island under various pretexts to determine the killer's identity. Lots of Christie references here, but it's still definitely a Katherine Hall Page book.
I also read most of Knitting Under the Influence by Claire LaZebnik. The story of three friends who knit together on a regular basis, it's total chick-lit. That doesn't mean it's not well-written, or a fun read, especially when one's head is fuzzy from cold medicine.
