Welcome to another Monday Potpourri…Musings.

What is the most recent book you purchased, or brought home from the local library? What made you pick it? Have you started reading it, right away, or will you wait for a bit?


Just this past week, I bought a book I found on the bargain table at Barnes & Noble.  The bargain price wasn’t the primary reason, though; I’ve had my eye on this one for awhile.

I thoroughly enjoy the suspense novels from Nora Roberts, and  The Search appealed to me.  I had wanted to purchase it before, but other priorities seemed to get in the way.

I also like the blurb:  To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life—a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school and a challenging volunteer job performing Canine Search and Rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

Several years ago, Fiona was the only survivor of the Red Scarf Killer, who shot and killed Fiona’s cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona has found the peace and solitude necessary to rebuild her life. But all that changes on the day Simon Doyle barrels up her drive, desperate for her help. He’s an intensely private wood artist and the reluctant owner of an out-of-control puppy named Jaws.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona’s life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands . . .


What was your latest purchase…and why?



  1. The book I am engrossed in now…The Native Star…I have a million other books to read but I wanted to read this one now! It is such a joy to read what I want to read when I want to read it…


  2. The last book I bought was AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI because a friend recommended it. It’s going really slowly, but I feel obligated to finish because my friend really wants to know what I think of it! Cool part though is that I bought it on Amazon as a used copy, and it came autographed by the author who’s a world-renowned spiritual leader!


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
