In the on-line book club I’m in we are reading J.T. Ellison’s Tear Me Apart. It’s not what I normally read, but it’s moving along well and keeping my interest. It’s got a few flaws. The character that I identified with the most, Juliet, pissed me off when she not only decided to jeapardize her career, but also possibly have every case she’s ever worked on reopened and/or vacated because she wants to help her niece by disregarding all the rules (and the law) about professional conduct.

I generally hate it when a major new character suddenly appears half way through a book. But the Zack Armstrong character seems compelling and sympathetic. I’m interested in what he’s doing.

However, after catching up yesterday to where we are supposed to be in the book for this week, I got sick last night. I had some weird dreams involving the story and characters in the book. So today I need to go back and re-read what I read yesterday. Because I don’t remember what was in the book and what was just in the dream. Argh!

So far the book has been pretty good. I’m hoping it stays that way.
