Crooked Heart by Lissa Evans
Crooked Heart

Mary Lou Cook, September 8, 2015

This book is a multi-course literary delight. It is funny, serious, intelligent. I like all the characters, even the wicked ones. Set in World War II England, the book includes a full cast, led by a suffragette, a con artist, and an orphan evacuee. Don't mis this entertainment! It is funny, not silly

Do not over look this small volume. Nothing about this story is as it initially appears at first read, but everything is a delicious mind experience.

State of Wonder (P.S.) by Ann Patchett
State of Wonder (P.S.)

Everything about this book is delicious: the writing and the plot. I wanted to finish the book because the story is so great, but I slowed to enjoy each sentence as a separate work of art. So many prizes under one cover!

Scandinavian Classic Baking by Pat Sinclair

This is a comprehensive Scandinavian baking book that is colorful and offers easy to follow recipes. There are lovely photos of various Scandinavian locations as well as of the finished creations. We ate our way across Scandinavia last summer, and this book allowed me to re-create the experiences in our own home. Perfect anytime.

The Laughing Policeman (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard) by Per Wahloo and Maj Sjowall
The Laughing Policeman (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)

Mary Lou Cook, January 1, 2011

This is one of a series of Swedish crime mysteries that are all enjoyable from a historical context(preceding the currently popular ones), and in conjunction with the more modern Swedish crime novels, eg by Henning Mankell and the Millenium serices.
