November was a busy month on the writing front, so rather less reading. Nothing was stand out brilliant either.
Holding Briefs, Without Prejudice and Duty of Care
by Andrew Calow
Three stories in an almost continuous narrative, set in either a Barristers Chambers or a Naturist Swim, depending on your point of view. The main tale revolves around a very slowly developing romance between two of the legal eagles. While interesting little plot lines bubble along in the back ground.
This is the second time through these books, the first time I really enjoyed them. This second time around I felt that the main romance develops frustratingly and unrealistically slowly. That said they are a great read. Watch out for more references to then on this site soon!
Hippie Hollow: Murder on a Nude Beach: A B.B. Rivers Mystery Series Book One
by Denniger Bolton
A well written little detective story, that had precious little to do with a nude beach.
BB (Bilbo Baggins) Rivers is a failed cop. He is in a romantic relation with Patricia. Patricia’s uncle needs someone to take a look at a five year old murder case … and the story begins. BB aided by several rather larger than life characters, Lucinder the rich aunt of one of the victims, Max the psychic and T.Rex the journalist.
They take an absurd trip around the Austin and its environs in pursuit of a hit man … and the perfect Chiles Relleno (Whatever they are!)
Really good fun romp!
