Crossing Places

Did I tell you that I know someone who lives in a shire?
I just love that word...shire...and really have no idea why.
I love the sound of it when I say it...SHIRE.
Did you say it out loud?

Anyway, my friend, AJ ( of Morning AJ)
lives in the UK and when I saw her return address, I beamed with pride!
I finally found someone who lives in a SHIRE...:)
(doing the HAPPY DANCE, I was!!)



Back in early Spring, I won a giveaway that AJ had and all participants received a book. Although mine took it's sweet time getting here because of the mail here in the states the book and note from AJ were unscathed.

The Crossing Places was one of those you can't put me down books. I love a good mystery and this was one! As you can see by the close-up, Ruth Galloway, the main character, is hunting a killer although that is not her true profession. Filled with intrigue and some surprising twists and turns, now I have to get the next one!



oops...sorry no pix today...:)

  1. I love that you think it's a big thing to live in a shire. It just means an area of land under a particular jurisdiction. Of course it's where the American word for a lawman 'Sheriff' came from. It's derived from Shire Reeve, who was the guy in charge of the area!
    I might do a 'shire' post, because it probably deserves one. :)

  6. well finally at last you found a shire person.. LOL..you know i am addicted to asking google questions. i asked what is a shire.

    In England, a shire is the district about a major town which is the responsibility of a sheriff to police now we all know

  8. O.K., now I'm wondering exactly a Shire is! A small town? A valley of some sort? I'm off to look it up!
