I definitely plan to read more books by this author. The story follows the reincarnations of Ursula Todd, the 3rd of 5 children born to a upper class family. The story takes place during both world wars.

The 7th book in the series is just as funny and suspenseful as the others. Charley Davidson is pregnant and has no idea how to be a parent. She decides to practice on a fish as a pet. Her father is missing and she has cases to solve. I recommend this book.

This is an anthology of horror, thriller, and dark fantasy tales. It includes such authors as Charlaine Harris, Cassandra Clare, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and others. Some tales I liked and others I did not like. Judge for yourself.

This is a twisted story about a young girl from Kentucky who moves overseas indefinitely after her childhood love and their group of friends go to jail for stealing objects from the local manor house, after she put them up to it. The story unravels after she learns that the boys have gotten out of jail - and are probably looking for her. The ending is happy with a twinge of irony, I thought the ending was well planned out.
