Today I finished The Alpine Recluse by Mary Daheim. I love this series which is about a newpaperwoman and murder in a small town.
Character development has always been one of the series strong points with people moving in and out of the story and growth that does not come across as being hokey.
I am still reading The Scarlet Letter to help out S2 though I have a ways to go til finishing it and don't know how much help I will end up being.
On the physical side I hurt from biking yesterday in the oddest place. Lets just say that it hurts to sit (and sleep is not fun either).
