Below are the books I’m reading and a TV series that’s beginning in May.

What I’m Reading:

Last night I started reading John Grisham’s “The Whistler,” published in 2016.

Book Summary:

Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She is a lawyer, not a cop, and it is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct.

It seems a judge was secretly involved with the construction of a large casino on Native American land. The Coast Mafia financed it and is skimming a sizable amount from each month’s cash.

The judge is getting a cut and looking the other way.

Bosch Book #9:

I just finished the book about Bosch after he left the LAPD and became a private investigator. It is called “Lost Light.”

As I read it, I visualized Titus Welliver in the role. To me, he will always be the face of the popular Bosch character.

Book Summary:

When he left the LAPD, Bosch took a file with him: the case of a production assistant murdered four years earlier during a movie set robbery.

The LAPD thinks the stolen money was used to finance a terrorist training camp.

TV Show Legacy:

Premiering May 6 on IMDb TV, Bosch: Legacy is a spin-off that continues the story begun in the Amazon crime drama, Bosch. The show called “Bosch” ran for seven seasons.

Legacy is loosely based on Connelly’s book “The Wrong Side of Goodbye”, which serves as the first episode’s title. It also is taking its cues from how Bosch ended its seven-season run.

How To Watch Legacy:

The first four episodes of the series will be available beginning May 6, with two new episodes available each Friday through May 27.

Additionally, starting April 22, all seven seasons of the Prime Video Original Bosch will be available to watch on Amazon’s free streaming service.

Legacy is going to be available to stream on Amazon Freevee (formerly IMDb TV). It’s the free-but-with-ads version of Amazon Prime (which you can access through the Amazon Prime app).

It’s a relatively new streaming service. Amazon Freevee is available as a Prime Video channel. You can access this on a web browser or through the Prime Video app.

You do not need an Amazon Prime subscription to access Freevee. But you will need to sign up for a free Amazon account to use the service.

Ivy Being Silly:

Here is what Ivy is up to this morning.

Ivy on her cat tree in my bedroom

She’s being very silly up at the top of her cat tree. Just about a foot and a half from the ceiling, it looks at any moment that she might fall.

Ivy is a big cat and the surface she is on looks small with her on it.

She has been acting more like a kitten in the past few weeks. Ivy seeks more of my attention.

I’m giving her all the love and attention she craves and I’m playing with her.

Ivy is quite the character and a real sweetheart.

  1. The pictures of Ivy are adorable! I can almost see her in motion. I haven’t read a John Grisham book in ages, and there was a time that I read every one as soon as they came out.

  2. Ivy is the cutest and sweetest cat. She’s a perfect companion for you Brenda. I think she’s very content with the way things are right now.
    I used to read every John Grisham book he published and then for some reason I stopped. Hmmm! In recent years I’ve read very little; in fact, hardly at all. A friend and I were chatting about my lack of concentration and she said she believes I’ll read again soon. Time will tell. In the meantime I keep buying books. LOL
    I hope you’ve had a fabulous day!

  3. Nice pictures of Ivy. My cats do things like that too. I recently read “The Whistler” and its follow-up book “The Judges List” both were good. I hope this character continues. You may also like Grisham’s book called “The Guardians.” I am fortunate in since my retirement from teaching that I work part time in the local library (down time gives opportunity to read!) You may like Lisa Unger if you have not read any of hers. I recently read Fragile.

    1. I’ve read some of Lisa Unger’s books. I already have ready and waiting to be read “The Judge’s List,” and I also have “The Guardian.”

  4. Sweet pics of Ivy. I think I mentioned I have a working whiskers cat that lives in my husbands old work shop. I feed her once a day. But every morning she is resting on storage bins and looking out the window when I go to tend to horse and chickens. I stop and talk to her and she squirrels herself around like Ivy is doing. I tell her how pretty she is and she is gorgeous. I’d love to be able to hold her but doubt that will ever happen. If I touch the windows with my fingers she hisses at me then goes back to twisting around. But she knows she has a safe place to live and be out of harms way.

  5. Hello Brenda
    I enjoy your blog and read it everyday. Ivy is so cute and funny! Love seeing crazy pics of her! Lol. Thanks for the recommendations today. We’re always looking for TV shows to watch. Love British series. Thinking and praying for your foot, hip and ankle. I can relate to dealing with pain my friend.
    Hugs to you.😊

    1. Well, thanks for reading! Ivy has kind of blossomed since we lost Gracie. I don’t know if she senses my grief, or just likes being the only cat. Could be both.

  6. What great pics of Ivy. She is so cute. I am glad she’s doing better, and I’m sure she is loving the attention you are giving her.
