Two for October - Slow month so far!!

Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell

The newest in Cornwell's Scarpetta series finds Kay Scarpetta and Benton Weselley, now married, splitting their time between their home base of Boston, Massachusetts and New York City. When little person, Oscar, is brought into Bellevue's Criminal Psychiatric Ward in NY, he asks specifically for Scarpetta. Oscar is being accused of murdering his girlfriend.

In this latest, Scarpetta is fighting a vicious online gossip site bent on destroying her reputation, trying to help solve a case while also bound by patient/doctor confidentiality, and is also faced with a forced reunion with Marino.

I thought the book was good, but a little too long. I didn't really care about the victim(s) so much until closer to the end of the book. However, I am still looking forward to the next in the series to find out where the characters go from there.

You Can Adopt by Susan Coughman

This is a GREAT book on adoption. It covers all of the nuts and bolts. The checklists are beyond helpful. So far, this is the best adoption book I have read.
