The Hanging Tree
The Hanging Tree - Ben Aaronovitch

I enjoyed spending time back in the skewed world of PC Grant and his "Falcon" cases. But at the same time, I was slightly disappointed by Installment #6 in The Rivers of London Series.  

 

Not sure how much of that disappointment is from The Hanging Tree being a weaker, mature series book, where it feels like all that gets advanced is the plot and the character's don't grow much.

We DO learn the name/identity of a key villain, but somehow that doesn't seem to change much of anything. 

(spoiler show)

 

 

Or how much of my disappointment is just general malaise and book hangover from the intensity of the last few weeks of Booklikes-opoly.

Audio review
Crooked Tree Ranch: Montana, Book 1 - RJ... Crooked Tree Ranch: Montana, Book 1 - RJ Scott,Sean Crisden,Love Lane Books Limited

Crooked Tree Ranch is a low angst and sweet story. It's very much a simple tale of a 'city boy' and his family (sister, niece, nephew) moving from New York to Montana to take a job after he gets laid off. There he encounters many things that are new to him: Mountains, horses, and, of course, cowboys. 

 

Sean Crisden's smooth and sexy narration really brings the story to life. Definitely a comfort listen.

The Grandfather Tree: A Tale of Age and Usefulness - Kenneth M Martin,Dan Alatorre,Allison Maruska,Allison Maruska

The Grandfather Tree: A Tale of Age and Usefulness by Kenneth M Martin
This story is about a man who's worked his whole life and is retired from his job. He gets bored at home and he finds he is useless.
He decides to also get rid of the tree because it's as useless as himself. He realizes on his way to the market many things.
Love the things he's able to share and he finds he does have useful information to those who will listen.
Love gardening and trees and that children keep the tree cutter from cutting the tree-but for how long.
Reminds me so much of my father, a nurseryman among many other jobs he held, thanks for the memories. Other works by the authors who brought this book to publication are highlighted at the end.
Received this review copy by the author and this is my honest review.
