Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Thoughts on...White Sleeper by Rett and Langford

I was thrilled when I got this book but for a less then ideal reason. Sure the book sounded good but I needed to read a book with "white" in the title for a challenge. How silly is that? Of course, I never would have said I'd review it if I didn't think I'd like it. Still the book sat on my shelf for months before moving to my read these soon pile. Where it sat for another month. Poor book!

How long did it take to finish the book once I started reading? Same day.

I love the cover but if I had read the first paragraph instead of the back cover, I never would have wanted to read it. Everything ties together nicely and I didn't feel rushed at the end. I grew to love the main characters and hope to see them in another book (White Lies is being written).

I enjoyed rooting for the underdog, yelling at the bad guys, shaking my head at moments and wanting to hit people upside the head. The boss is a perfect example of promoting civil servants through politics instead of performance and I absolutely loved him being described as "a C-list person in an A-list position". Dr. Root and Mr. Smith are a couple of my favorite characters.
