I want to thank those of you who stopped by and commented on my last post. It was for me a serious public service announcement trying to prevent "death by toilet". I knew some of you would be appalled by my delving into bathroom functions and would just move on. I totally understood and actually recommended that you do that. What I didn't see coming was the actual response.
I normally get about 150 hits on my individual posts. I'm sure a lot of that is from accidental check ins as well as lurkers who actually read the posts but don't comment. When you spread that amount over a week, it isn't that much. Most of you probably get that many every day.
However, I was stunned to see that my last post on poop had garnered 785 hits all by itself. I did not see that coming. Who knew poop was a key search word. I thought only sexy key words brought out the strangers. I just hope a small portion of those 785 actually profited by the post and are now practicing exhalers. One can hope.
Another thing I didn't see coming. Fran at Fishducky Finally recently recommended a book written by a good friend of hers. It was only 99 cents and along with Fran's recommendation, downloading it was a no brainer.
Little Girl Lost by Carol Wyer is a crime thriller that is normally out of my preferred genre. I was a little surprised to have thoroughly enjoyed it. The first chapter is hard to read because of the subject matter but is what makes the whole book turn. The last sentence in the first chapter jolted me and I muttered aloud, "Whoa---- I did not see THAT coming."
Throughout the book I found my self repeating that same phrase. The author never lets you get comfortable in your assumptions. It is easy to figure out "who" done it. Figuring out which of the characters the "who" actually is as a grown up is where the challenge enters. The main characters have mostly undergone name, physical and personality changes since they were children.
Just when you think you know which character the adult "who" is, the author tosses in a wrinkle that makes you think once more, Hum, didn't see that coming. Lots of twists.
An easy read?? Nope, nor is it a short read--- but you won't be bored and you dare not skip over anything.The author keeps you on your toes It was a fun challenge and a page turner. I really, really enjoyed it and hope you give it a shot. You have to love the price.
Hope you have some surprises lately that you didn't see coming but were fun and pleasant also.
