Rosanne is passing this challenge on, one she found from Every little thing blog.
This is a fun idea to see what everyone is reading in the midst of a very cold winter.
Sue Grafton's latest novel was closest to hand.Her alphabet series with the female private investigator Kinsey Millhone.
"Great. I'm sure she'll understand the kind of crisis we've got on our hands. Gus is eighty-nine years old and your his only living relative."
Her tone shifted from resistance to mere reluctance. "I do have business contacts in L.A.I don't know how quickly I could set it up, but I suppose I could fly out at the end of the week and maybe see him Saturday or Sunday. How would that be?"
"One day in town won't do him any good unless you mean to leave him where he is."
"In the nursing home? That's not such a bad idea."
"Yes, it is. He's miserable."
