Mine


This morning the sun is shining and I'm thankful we made it through Irene with only a leaky roof. The kids still don't have electricity but fingers crossed it will come back on today.


I didn't get a lot of writing done, but in the midst of Irene I was blogging at Coffee Time Romance on Sunday. The giveaways are over but you can still read my posts at: http://coffeetimeromance.com/CoffeeThoughts/

And I managed to finish a book I've had on my TBR list for ages – Mine by Robert R. McCammon. Believe me, if you want a story that will take your mind off your problems, this is it.


Mine is an intense psychological thriller with one of the worst villains I've ever come across. No werewolf or vampire, just a human monster who is downright crazy evil. Mary Terror, is an aging hippie and former member of a radical group from the sixties. She's looking for her old lover, Lord Jack, who was the leader of their terrorist organization, the Storm Front. High on acid and insane Mary kidnaps a baby from a hospital intending to bring it to Lord Jack, to replace their baby she lost twenty years ago. The mother is desperate to get her baby back and she has no faith in her unfaithful husband or the FBI. And so begins a nail-biting chase across the country.


I don't want to give away any more details, but believe me this is page-turner. The sixties details make it feel like non-fiction which makes it all the scarier. I highly recommend it. I'd love to jump right into They Thirst and Usher's Passing, which are also sitting on my shelf, but I really need to get back to work.


So have a great week and happy reading!
