Reading Harry Bosch

I've been continuing with the Harry Bosch series by Michael Connelly. I've made my way through Darkness More Than Night, City of Bones, Lost Light, The Narrows and finally The Closers. I've enjoyed each one. In The Closers, Harry comes out of retirement to join the Open-Unsolved unity. Basically, they take on cold cases. There's a new chief of police and he's cleaning up the department. He wants Harry on the team, but he won't stand for any nonsense. Of course, you know Harry's bound to get into some trouble! He's working with this old partner, Kiz Rider. They start working on the case of Rebecca Verloren, murdered at age 16 in the year 1988. New DNA evidence has provided a lead and they're off to solve the case. Along the way Harry finds some departmental corruption and as I said, he gets in trouble. 

 

Goodbye!

Eight years ago, I came to the Aldine Library, leaving my family behind in Louisiana. At first I was so homesick! But the wonderful staff and customers here soon made me feel at home.  I’ve had such wonderful time here with you all! There have been challenges, but I’ve had so much fun with you. I’ve grown and learned and become a better manager for being here.I’m off to a new assignment at the Barbara Bush Library. I’m excited about my new place but I will always be so grateful for my time here. It has been an honor and a joy to work at the Aldine Library. Thank you and goodbye!

 

A Deep Sadness

Like the rest of the Aldine community, we were shocked and saddened by the death of Stovall Middle School student, Jose Luis Meraz. When someone so young dies, it is such a great tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Meraz family and  the staff and students at Stovall Middle School.

 

The Long Way Home

This is one of my favorite mystery series, partly because of the beautiful Canadian settings, but also because of the personality of Armand Gamache and the other characters.

The Accident

I wanted to read The Accident after reading Pavone’s best seller, The Expats. This story isn’t as compelling as The Expats but it was entertaining. Isabel Reed, a New York literary agent, receives a manuscript from an anonymous author. It is sure to be a best seller, but since it reveals secrets kept by powerful people, she is afraid that it will be dangerous to publish the book. Sure enough, her assistant is murdered and soon Isabel and her associate Jeff are running for their lives.

Every summer, our kids love to see Ronald McDonald coming. He tells corny jokes and does some magic. Most of all, he makes our kids laugh! So come see him, this Wed. at 3 pm in the children's area.
