S.D. came to clean. I said hi, and borrowed the vacuum, since she had it upstairs, to vacuum my room. I can't carry the vacuum up and down the stairs. She was cleaning other things at the time.
The new PsyCop book is out. I'll get it when I'm not so broke. I may wait until it's available at Rainbow eBooks, if it's on sale there.
I borrowed The Haunted Heart: Winter from U. As I posted, I read the rough draft. I skimmed over the first several chapters of the published version. They didn't seem so different. There were changes and additions in the last few chapters. (*spoilers, especially for dialogue*) One modern-day character described a character from the 1930s as "black as sin," and maybe a "throwback." It wasn't so much that an octogenarian would use those words, but the younger characters didn't seem to think there was anything wrong with that wording, or so it came across to me. I was hoping that would have changed since the rough draft, but it was the same.
There was a crossover visit from Stephen and Mark of the "I Spy" series. The "I Spy" books are contemporaries, and The Haunted Heart is paranormal. I was kind of okay with it, but as I recently posted, I'm not much for genre-mixing along those lines.
Though it's a series, the ending isn't as abrupt as some of Josh's books. I thought Blood Red Butterfly had an extremely abrupt ending. The last couple of words of Come Unto These Yellow Sands were not how I expected a romance to end. The Haunted Heart: Winter was a decent story. I hope the narrator's mood improves.
The free Friday Barnes & Noble book was The Midwife's Here! It sounded interesting. I read a little. Amazon must have price-matched, because it was free there, too.
I went out to the flowers. The mystery pink rose had several blossoms.
Later: I read Break and Enter by Rachel Haimowitz and Aleksandr Voinov. I'd had it since 2011, so my file information said. When I started getting e-books in 2007 or so, I was reading the ones I got pretty promptly. Even now I'll occasionally read one I get the day I get it. But sometimes I read them years later. I thought it was good.
