Reading the Jesse Stone series

The books read very quickly, with lots of description of the New England landscape and weather. Jesse Stone, of course, is the laconic police chief of the fictitious Paradise, Mass. He has an on/off drinking problem and has an on-again, off-again relationship with his ex-wife. And between visits with his psychiatrist, Stone shows his brilliance at solving crimes.

It’s fun to read the novels and imagine myself as someone who says little but knows a great deal about what’s going on. This is the type of reading I do to keep myself reading to prepare for heavier reading or when passing the time while waiting for something to arrive through MelCat.
