    josantoro, I didn't know there was a movie! I loved "A Man Called Ove" so much that I named my dog Ove. I always imagined Ove in the book to be short, have a big nose and not a lot of hair. Fit my dog perfectly.

    It is a Swedish production but I believe an American film is in the works.

    I loved that book, too, and didn't realize there was a movie!

    I'm waiting on the new CJ Box book from the library. I haven't read it yet but I'm sure it will be good.

    SD, you got me hooked on CJ Box books so I will have to look to see if they have the new one at the library when I am there this afternoon.

    Finished The Reckoning by John Grisham. Not one of my favorites by him.

    Love CJ Box. We like Wyoming and often he writes about places we've been, so it's easy to picture scenes in the book. Sheridan, WY, is the real Saddlestring and they're proud of it.

    I love John Sandford and William Kent Krueger's books, too. Most are set in MN. WKK's Cork O'Connor series is set in Aurora, MN, which is not far from here, so it's fun to read those.

    Since you are talking about books set in a locale, the wine murder mysteries by Ellen Crosby are set in a town in my neck of the woods - somewhere around Middleburg VA. Merlot Murder, Chardonnay Charade, etc. Goodness, I just now see she has written some more. I thought she was finished with that character after the 4th book.

    Read The Other Woman (it's the boyfriends mother) and Winter Sisters. I didn't like the ending to The Other Woman, although I rarely really like the endings to books. Now I'm reading Forks Over Knives.

    I'm finishing up a book on CD today by a favorite author, Louise Erdrich. This one is supposedly a juvenile book but I knew the writing would be excellent. "The Game of Silence". Historical fiction.

    Finished listening to the latest Lady Darby mystery by Anna Lee Huber. Read by a woman w/ lovely British accent. There will be another book coming in April. I have enjoyed all of them.
