Death Before Wicket (Phryne Fisher, #10)Death Before Wicket by Kerry Greenwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars 

This was an usual one because it was in Sydney so it was only Dot there to help out. Jack Robinson was mentioned as source to be referred by but really Phryne is pretty much on her own. I was surprised by the ending, it was not who I thought it was and I didn’t see all the layers of the crime till it was explained by Phryne in a most unusual way. I love archaeology and mythology so it was right up my street so I did enjoy it, and I thought it gave Dot a chance to shine a bit more, since she was looking for her sister. I am looking forward to the next one.

Origin (Robert Langdon, #5)Origin by Dan Brown

This was a really great book but it was also a very troubling book. It was a fun adventure with places I have never even thought about visiting and artists I have never heard of, that part of it was so much fun! I really loved the characters in this book and Robert Langdon’s relationships with them. I love art but like Robert I have been a fan of few modern artists, there are some, because I feel I understand them, but to be truly honest some I will never understand. He introduced to me places I have never been, like Spain, and literature I had never even heard of, as always it was a page turner and it was exciting. And that part of it was so much fun!

The way I feel about Religion and Science is very close to Robert’s that they care deeply about the world around us but they are just going about it differently. I am open to AI, and I found Winston very charming and an interesting character. I am not going to spoil it, but I found parts of the book very disturbing, and I stayed up nights since I read it worrying over it. I am that type of person and I really appreciate Dan Brown opening the conversation and bringing up these very, very important issues especially at this time. I think this is his best book and yet as I said before I felt it is very disturbing at the same time.

More Than Love: An Intimate Portrait of My Mother, Natalie WoodMore Than Love: An Intimate Portrait of My Mother, Natalie Wood by Natasha Gregson Wagner

I have loved Natalie Wood since I was a small child. I saw her on talk shows in the 70’s with Robert Wagner who I also adore, or by herself. She was always funny, intelligent and adorable. She was my favorite actress as kid (I wanted to be an actress, not many brunettes for a brunette who wanted to be an actress to look up to, she was also extremely talented.) My favorite movies are Cash McCall and Love With a Proper Stranger. She was also great in comedy and I adored her in Sex and The Single Girl and Bob, Carol, Ted and Alice. In other words I am a fan.

When Natalie was going to be in Anastasia in LA at the Music Center I was so excited, I squealed when we got the postcard advertising it. (I still have it somewhere.) I lived at home, I was going to college and working but I knew I did not have enough money to go to the play and pay my bills, My Dad promised to get them for the whole family when they came on the market.

Of course that was not to be. I was so stunned when I heard what happened, and heart broken. It is hard to explain, I never met her, or even got a glimpse of her in person.

When all the speculation started with her sister Lana I was shocked, it was obvious she didn’t like Robert Wagner in her book, (which I did read) but she never accused him of anything like she did later. When she accuse him, I was very angry. I am a life long murder mystery fan and what she and the ship’s captain said happened, had way too many holes in it, it made no sense.

I was so excited to read Natasha Gregson Wagner book, I saw the advertisement for it after I saw her HBO special, Natalie Wood, What Remains Behind. I loved all the stuff about Natalie’s life in the documentary, her career and family life. It was beautiful. At the end, I was nodding my head and agreeing with her and the people she was interviewing, they knew best, everyone else in blogs and podcasts are just speculating. The biggest thing for me was that Christopher Walken and Robert Wagner didn’t really like each other and were not friends, why would Christopher back him up, if it was a lie, so I knew that all this fodder was just trumped up stuff, to make money. So sad. And unfair.

So I bought the book, it was very good, it is very hard to write the dark side of your life, the hard stuff for you to grapple with and to do it for the public, wow! I think Nastasha did a great job and she obviously researched her Mom’s life very thoroughly. She is so lucky to have so much, I treasure the pieces I have my parents, I don’t have as much as she does but the bits and pieces are precious. I felt so bad as I read how she had desperately wanted to keep her parents home, that she was scared something would happen to them and then when it did, her life just spiraled.

I also noticed as I read all the things that Lana had wrong, dates that things happened, the bust of James Dean disappearing, (obliviously not true, it was right there in storage,) even what Natalie was wearing on that last Thanksgiving. Also Natasha explaining her attitude to two tiny kids who just lost their Mom, her sister was cold and cruel. It made me realize her book was not true at all.

I love the happy ending for Natalie’s kids though, they deserve it. And I really hope people stop talking about her passing and focus on what great actress she was, maybe even have a Natalie Wood Film Festival. That would be so cool.

Thank you Natasha, from one daughter to another.

Gaudy Night (Lord Peter Wimsey, #12)Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers


I am not sure how many times I have read this book but it never gets old. It is the first book to introduce me to Oxford in such glorious detail. I have been hungry for more info ever since, that was a long time ago. I didn’t get to visit Oxford when I went to the UK, I had little time but I wish I did.

It also finally gives me the ending I wanted between Peter and Harriet, yes there was a tangle of a mystery that they had to solve and it was a mind bender of chore. But the romance really was tested in this one, and I enjoyed both the emotion and the intellect involved in it.

In fact I think it is fascinating that we are still facing this question of how a woman should be in the 21st century. It is such a strange thing, no one questions if a man can be both heart and mind, even though it is just as much a battle (sometimes more so) for a man as it is for a woman. It poses some questions that still ring true today.

As usual Dorothy Sayers pulls your brain apart in several different directions and throws in languages that most people don’t know like Latin and Greek. At least I understood the French. The world has changed I remember the first time I went to the library to get the translations and now I just plug them into Google.

Sayers challenges you but she gives you the pleasure of a good hunt, with some lovely romance thrown in. Very much worth it, especially with the world as it is right now.

Murder and Mendelssohn (Phryne Fisher, #20)Murder and Mendelssohn by Kerry Greenwood

I really enjoyed this adventure, it was fun getting to see Phryne take on a Sherlock Holmes type and really showing him that he had it all wrong. We meet her dear friend from the war who she comforts and is there for when he needs her. We get to find about her spy days and meet some of the spooks of her past. Of course, the framework is the choir, which of course Phryne joins to figure out who was the killer. And it was lovely to have so much of Jack Robinson in it, her favorite detective and her dear friend in the books. (In this book more then others that I have read he is closer to the Jack Robinson of the TV series. Especially when it comes to food.)

The Five Red Herrings (Lord Peter Wimsey, #7)The Five Red Herrings by Dorothy L. Sayers

I loved the setting an artist community in a small Scottish fishing village. The passions are for fishing and art, which is a strange mix to me but interesting to read. Obliviously, Dorothy Sayers knows this place well and loves it. It shows a great fondness for the surroundings.

I’ve read this one a few times, it his hard to through the different accents but you get the rhythm after a while it gives it a depth that makes it sparkle.

The man who is killed is a very unlikable person. I kind of prefer a sympathetic victim myself, but there is a fascinating lot of suspects. All artists, all temperamental and different in their own way. A lot of prejudices come into play of the time, if you know history it is easy to follow if you don’t you may have to look some things up to understand.

It comes to a surprising conclusion and it all hangs one piece of evidence that is essential to every artist that is missing at the scene of the crime. I won’t tell you what it is because it will ruin the fun but if you paint will get it really quickly though it make take you a bit to figure out.

On-line Book Fair and Reprise of Joe Kronus!

This season ended with a wonderful author interview, and I will end Sherri’s Playhouse with a reprise of Joe Kronus.  I am very proud of that show, I wrote it and directed it, we had an amazing cast that I am very proud of.

 

I also would like to thank the playwrights, actors and editors who helped to make this year’s Sherri’s Playhouse Possible.  I would also like to thank the people who take part in my Patreon page who are vital to making my dreams and others dreams come true. Thank you. 

It was a very busy year, I had 118 shows this season, and wrote 4 radio play and three novels. Not bad.

I would like to thank everyone who was a guest on Chatting With Sherri, I had a  great year! The live The Chatty Award was given to Adrienne Wilkinson this year for live listens.
