Book Review: Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice

Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice is a young adult horror novel originally published in April 1997.  Marnie and her cousin Peter drive up to the mansion that Marnie's father rented for the summer ahead of her father.  When the cousins arrive at the mansion called Stonycraig and settle in, Marnie is nervous because she thought she saw a shadow in one of the windows.  Then, she starts hearing a woman crying late at night.  Are the stories about Stonycraig being haunted true? This is a book I originally read as a teenager, and I remember being impressed by the storyline and writing.  I recently decided to reread it as an adult to see if it was as good as I remembered.  I have to say it was phenomenal.  Well-written and unputdownable.   Even though there were parts that came back to me as I made my way through Music From The Dead , I still found it to be perfectly eerie and creepy.  There was even a little bit of romance but nothing inappropriate for a tween or teen.  The only com

Book Review: Three to Get Deadly (Stephanie Plum, #3) by Janet Evanovich

Stephanie Plum is at it again in Three to Get Deadly (Stephanie Plum, #3) by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie has been having a bad hair day for a month and is driving a powder blue Buick. Her latest skip that Stephanie has to apprehend is Trenton's adored ice cream shop owner Mo Bedemier, who was arrested for carrying a concealed gun and missed his court date. To top it off, Vinny's file clerk, former hooker Lula, now wants to be a bounty hunter and assist Stephanie.

As in the previous two installments, One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1) and Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2), Stephanie Plum is a terrible bounty hunter. It's amazing that she stays employed, but I guess it helps that her cousin, Vincent "Vinny" Plum is her boss. I did enjoy that Stephanie's ex-husband made an appearance in Three to Get Deadly. It made the book more interesting.

What I detested was the exercise routine Stephanie started with Ranger because she had gained a few pounds. It's just so uncharacteristic for her, and it just felt like it was put in for filler. I have to say that this installment was one of my least favorite in the series, so much so that I almost didn't continue reading past this one. I gave it three out of five stars.
