First and most definitely foremost, I hope that everyone had a GREAT turkey day, whether there was turkey on the menu or not!
For a work week that was only THREE days long, a surprising amount of stuff showed up on Edelweiss and NetGalley. Which I am, of course, VERY thankful for!
After absolutely LOVING the first book in the Barker & Llewelyn series, Some Danger Involved, earlier this week, of course I bought the next book in the series! But the book I’m also really looking forward to in this stack is Murder at the White Palace, the 6th book in the Sparks & Bainbridge historical mystery series. That series has been terrific from the very first book, The Right Sort of Man, so I’m eager to see what happens to our intrepid duo next.
The book I’m most curious about is Pets and the City. It’s nonfiction, the autobiographical account of a vet who makes house calls in Manhattan – as the full title clearly states. I’m curious because this is not the first book that I’ve seen telling that story. Dr. Louis J. Camuti wrote his tales of calling on tails and fins and fangs in Manhattan back in 1980 under the hilariously true title of All My Patients Are Under the Bed. I remember those tales and those patients very fondly, and still have a copy of the book – assuming the cats haven’t either chewed it to scrap or peed on it somewhere along the way. But all of that means I’m really curious to see how much as changed and how much remains the same. For example, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to learn that all of Dr. Attas’ patients are ALSO under the bed!
