    Another Mystery to Solve!

    If you like reading and mysteries, Tome of Death by D.R. Meredith will give you the chills of your life! This was a great fourth addition to the Murder by the Yard series. In this book, the heroine or female Sherlock Holmes is Dr. Megan Clark, PhD, a reference librarian at the Amarillo Public Library and paleopathologist. She along with her trusty and older sidekick-Watsonian neighbor, Dr. Ryan Stevens, continue their membership in the Murder by the Yard book club that reads mysteries; what could possibly go wrong in a book club? Right? Well, let's just say that Ryan never expected that he and Megan would stumble across ANOTHER dead body at a picnic near the Palo Duro Canyon. But they don't just find one, they find two! And as usual, Megan decides to take on the case in competition with Lieutenant Jerry Carr and his Special Crimes police force! How will this end? You'll have to read in order to find out!
    The fourth installment in the series brings up an interesting cultural heritage - that of the Comanche Amerindians. Once again, this book does a great job of showing the growing confusion in the relationship between Ryan and Megan. Are they friends, or is there something more? I think they should just finally admit to themselves and each other that their feelings are more than just friendship. And I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good mystery!
