I can't believe how many challenges you're participating in! Do you double dip or all they all different books? Either way, I'm impressed.

Left to Die is on my TBR list, it will be my 1st Lisa Jackson book.

You had a great month.

Karen - I can't believe the number of challenges either! I'm nuts! I definitely double dip, but not every book for every challenge. I make sure of that. I try to read mostly what I already own when I can, but that doesn't always work out.

Marce - be prepared for the cliff hanger ending in Left to Die. I hope you like it, it was my first by the author too.
