Yes, it is called "Clawback".  A clawback is the nominal sum paid back to investors who lose their savings in a ponzi scheme if there is any money retrieved at all.  Her series on J.P. Beaumont are very good too.  He is a detective in Seattle.  I would recommend reading them from the beginning although that is not absolutely critical.  She also has a series with a woman sheriff named Joanna Brady which I highly recommend.   The Beaumont books are the oldest ones.

Took DD back to college this weekend and head back to work myself this morning, so I guess summer is officially over for me. Now that the summer reading program has ended, the library shelves will fill up again. I've been reading the Ali Reynolds mysteries by JA Jance. Isn't the book you just read the latest in the series, Janet? I think DD read it while she was home. I've only read the first 4 so far, so I held off on that one.

Love Max Lucado books - always an inspiration!

Comment by Vilma/AR on Saturday

I have been reading the books of the Rose Harbor Series by Debbie Macomber.  It's a spin off the Cedar Cove Series that was on Hallmark TV for a few seasons.  Read a book by Max Lucado, The Next Door Savior.  Very good book.  Of Course I love Max Lucado for 20+ years now.

Me, too, love the books by Sandra Dallas and Marie Bostwick.  One thing I discovered this week is E-book.  A friend showed me how to put it in my Android phone, so I have been doing the audio books and loving it.

I too love the books by Sandra Dallas.  I remember reading Buster Midnight's Cafe, but can't remember the story line.  I find quite often I really enjoy a book while I'm reading it, but then don't really remember much of it later on.  I guess if I did, my head would explode due to the fact that I read several books every month.

Thanks Amanda...I have been reading "Through the Looking Glass"...maybe that is why the dreams are alittle crazy!...in fact one of the characters in my dream were three ladies durning the French Revolution dressed in ruffles, flounces and huge portrait hats, they must have weigh 300 lbs apiece...they were sitting on little children's chairs and drinking tea from a child's tea set...the cup handles were too small for them to hold , so they had to sip their tea from the saucer...such a funny picture....now I realize that some of that dream was taken from my new book..Locked Rooms...what crazy, mixed up dreams we can have....

Too funny, Kathy! Good luck on tonight's dream. I don't have dreams very often but when I do they are mostly nightmares, so I try to not have dreams at all.

I haven't found anything really thrilling to read in a while and then I do go back to my favorite's, such as M.C. Beaton, Jane Austen, etc... 

I am still reading Between Heaven and Texas, by Marie Bostwick and I also started Buster Midnight's Cafe by Sandra Dallas. I really like her books, but more often than not they are really sad, so I space them out.
