Spider Woman’s Daughter ~ Anne Hillerman
Bernie Manuelito, Navajo Police Officer and wife to officer Jim Chee witnesses a shooting, not of just anyone but to Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn. A man who ‘s been like an Uncle to both her and her husband. She swears to catch the person responsible, and intends to keep her word, but she’s taken off the case and has family responsibilities she must deal with. How can she solve Leaphorn’s shooting while still dealing with her mother and sister?
My ranking? 3 howls.
I liked the extension of her father’s stories, but it wasn’t perfect. There was a lot of unnecessary geographical details that I would have skipped (and I give more than a lot of authors…) I liked the back and forth between Bernie and Chee (even though there was a lot of head hopping, with no obvious marking that you were switching). It was a good story, but could use improvement.
Lost in the Nowhere by Christine Howard
I loved this book. While it’s not in the same category as most of the things I read, I really enjoyed it. It pulled me in and kept my interest late in the night. I quickly fell in love with the characters and wanted to find out what happened to them.

I’ve cleared 2500 words for today, and I broke the 25k mark yesterday. I’m doing well. I should be able to take off a few days when I’ve just got too much stuff going on to write, without problem.
How’s your NaNo going?
We’ve got some family in from out of town this weekend so I’m getting less done than I’d prefer, but it’s been a good visit. I am getting a little bit done each day, and I’m not falling behind of the recommended milestones, but I’m not making the two thousand words I like to get each day. I’m sure I’ll be better able to catch up some once people go back to school, but that won’t be till Wednesday for some of them.
Slow day yesterday, only a couple hundred words but it was the old man’s birthday… Today I managed about eighteen hundred words… not quite my two thousand word personal goal, but at least I made the 1667. I’m still a couple days ahead, which makes me happy.
