The Confession by John Grisham (#57)

A lutheran minister listens to an apparently terminally ill guy confess to the rape and murder of a high school student in Texas. An innocent man would soon be executed for this murder. Thus begins John Grisham's latest suspenseful book. Very enjoyable. (blogged out of order)

Santa Fe Edge by Stuart Woods (#58)

Disappointing! A chase story involving a couple of bad people and other people running around and trying to catch them while engaging in kinky activities involving money, airplanes, and sex. I loved this author's earlier books but definitely not the recent ones.

Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore (#56)

Ron is a successful rich white man, an art dealer in Fort Worth, Texas, and Denver is a Black homeless man, enslaved in the tenant farmer system of the South a generation ago. These two lives came together in a wondrous way to become a deep friendship based on strong faith and the love and guidance of Deborah, Ron's wife. Well written and inspirational. I especially liked how the voices of Ron and Denver came out in alternating chapters.

Her Daughter's Dream by Francine Rivers #55

Well written, very enjoyable, continuation of "Her Mother's Hope", family novel set in California.
