 The Art of Racing in the Rain
Fantastic book, especially for anyone that loves dogs!  …even if you don’t, it’s an interesting book told from “Enzo’s” (the dog) perspective.  I couldn’t put it down!

Blind Alley

From Elaine Pasquali
author: Johansen, Iris
Blind Alley
Forensic sculpture, Eve Duncan, Joe Quinn (Eve’s significant other)and Jane (Eve’s adopted daughter) battle a serial killer, Aldo.  Aldo is out to rid the world of the what he believes is the reincarnated Cira.  Cira lived in Herculaneum, which was destroyed by the erupting Mount Versuvius.  Aldo leaves a trail of ritualistically murdered Cira look-a-likes. Jane is one of these look-a-likes.  In order to save Jane, a plan is devised to trap Aldo in the ruins of Herculaneum.  This novel is almost 400 pages and probably would have benefited from careful editing out of about fifty pages.  However, it captured my attention enough to get me to read up on Herculaneum.
