    ..waiting for reviews.

    I had asked the Mods if they would put a book thread up so we could go back on all the old suggestions and reviews -- didn't quite happen. With Christmas coming 'n all.

    My library doesn't put books into the system for hold requests until they actually have the book in hand... so I just now got to request this one. Someone must have checked it out the minute they unwrapped it. I'm going to have to get an inside source at the library before the new Dick Francis book arrives.

    I've got mine but have NOT read it yet - so I guess I'll have to skip the rest of this thread for fear of spoilers.

    So jealous of you who have the book in hand! I have often stood in the barn and thought- now what would Sister do or think about this?

    I am leaving for a week cruise (honeymoon) today and grabbed the new Dick Francis in the airport. Guess I need to go find a bookstore before I leave.

    She did a reading in San Francisco a while ago. In my book she gave me her phone number (probably the hunt's) and invited me to hunt with her.

    Well. It was good. And I certainly would not tell someone not to bother reading it, because I did like it. It was not her best one. I am glad I read it, but I have the same meh feeling about it as I did with Hunt Ball: I hope the next one is better.

    That said, can't wait for the next one.

    Was there one between the Hunt Ball and this new one? There were some references in this one that I didn't get, so I reckon I've missed one somewhere? (The still blowing up, Felicity getting pregnant?)

    I am getting to meet her next weekend! MY bestest friend rides with the Red Rock Hounds in Reno and RMB has set her next book there. She has invited them to come hunt with her in Charlottesville/Keswick (not sure which hunt she actually is with) next week. My friend is flying out and has invited me to a weekend of fun. There is even a party at her house (from what I understand) :-) I can't wait!

    Hey Scotchie, ya gotta dish after that week end!

    Oak Ridge sounds like the best hunt in the world to ride with. Have you read her remarks about attire on their website? Best ever.

    I think I'll go see if BAM has it. I need a little pick-me-up!

    Got my copy on Thursday and finished it Friday. I certainly enjoyed it as much as all the others. And the new Mrs. Murphy book comes out in November. I already pre-ordered mine from Amazon.

    does it have any badgers in it? Because you know, they aren't indigenous to Virginia.
