This was the much awaited sequel to Death on Tour, which was Janice Hamrick's first mystery. I was a big fan of Death on Tour, so I was unsure whether or not the author would be a one hit wonder. Well, I must say I enjoyed this book just as much even though it took place in Texas instead of Egypt, and I'm not really a fan of books set in Texas. Jocelyn Shore is back home and ready to start a new school year, when she stumbles over the dead body of a fellow teacher. She quickly becomes involved in trying to help solve the crime, and becomes a target herself. Throw in a distant boyfriend in a long-distance relationship, and much too attractive police detective, an over-the-top drama teacher, and the craziness of her cousin, and it all adds up to what may be this teacher's final exam.

This is the book by the author we have coming to the library on Saturday. Since I'm going to be talking about it I wanted to refamiliarize myself with the book. Bad vampires, good vampires, demons, vampire fighters, and a forbidden romance, everything a vampire book needs.
Since I like to read something light a lot of nights just before I fall asleep, I've starting picking up comic collections to read. I've read Dilbert from almost day one, and it was entertaining to go back and reread some of the earlier comics. Seeing how new and amazing the Internet was considered was funny.

Peculiar People: The Story of My Life Augustus Hare, edited by Anita Miller and James Papp, 303 pages
This is the latest book in the Death on Demand series, featuring Annie and Max. I've been a fan since almost the very beginning, and getting to meet the author when she came to the library was a treat. This one is just as good, the books always keep me entertained and are too bloody or fluffy.
I like reading a comic book collection a lot of nights before I go to bed, it helps me unwind. Dilbert has been a favorite for many years, and I plan on being part of Dogbert's ruling class.
