I had a brief trip into town yesterday afternoon to go to the library (another reserved book was in) and pay some extra money into savings - it was nice to see we'd managed to under-spend by quite a bit last month, particularly after the extra we had to pay on the car in September.
Once I got back from the library I read "First Drop" by Zoë Sharp. Fast-paced thriller, our heroine is an ex-army bodyguard on her first job, protecting the 15 year-old son of a computer programmer. Which should be tedious, but easy ... and then it all goes wrong. I'm not sure it would bear re-reading while one remembered the twists, and I wasn't entirely convinced by part of the wrap-up at the end but the book was good enough that I was willing to let it drop and not think too much about it :)
