Almost There! #97 and #98

I'm almost to my goal of 100 books in 2008.

Chat Chat by Archer Mayor

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's a good entry in the Joe Gunther series. I haven't read the Joe Gunther series in a while, so it was good to get re-acquainted. This was a gripping mystery-suspense up to the last few chapters where it seemed to lose steam. I enjoyed it anyway.

Trojan Gold: A Vicky Bliss Mystery (Book 4) Trojan Gold: A Vicky Bliss Mystery by Elizabeth Peters

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I am an ardent fan of Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series, but I don't remember reading any novels featuring Vicky Bliss before. On the down side, this isn't the first book in the series, so there seemed to be a great deal of backstory that I've missed. On the up side, the book made me laugh in several places. It is a mystery-adventure, and there is murder and mayhem, but there's farce too. A nice escape!

I definitely liked the early Vicky Bliss books, even though there are only a few of them.

I wish I had gotten to my goal. It's not going to happen, but still somewhat happy with what I read.
