I just completed Haunted Ground by Erin Hart. I had read about this book and wanted to read it because it involved anthropology and forensics. I thought it might be like a Kathy Reichs book. It wasn't. The book was interesting and informative. It takes place in Ireland where a human head is found buried in a bog. Now, a bog is a very special place because remains do not decay like they would if they were just buried in dirt. There a several colorful characters and the story was interesting as the main character, Cormac, tries to figure out several different mysteries. The bog lady is one, but there's another mystery of a woman and her child that disappeared several years ago.
I enjoyed reading the book; it was descriptive and colorful. But not the suspense and intrigue of a Reichs.
I had to read a lot last night -- I had to finish that book so that I can read a book on my NEW KINDLE!! I have been researching and desiring an ereading device for a while now. I had just about decided on the Kindle, when in July, they announced a new version. I took that as a sign from God and took the plunge. It arrived yesterday, and so far I'm thrilled. I've loaded one book on it so far, and I find the controls very easy and intuitive. I'm anxious to get started, but I also have three other books checked out that I want to read! Where to begin???
