I've been away from this series for a few years and decided to get back to it. Currently I'm reading "The Whole Enchilada", by Diane Mott Davidson. The quote is from page 56  in the paperback.


Years ago, he'd been a legend in his own mind, never less than an hour late for any appointment, intent in impatiently interrupting patients as they related their tales of woe.

  1. Love that saying: "a legend in his own mind." Sounds like this is suspense with humor mixed in. I like that!

    1. It's a good saying, very evocative. Davidson mixes humor in but never goes over the top.

  2. I think I would have to read this by the cover alone. I choose a lot of books, just by looking at their covers. :-) It made me smile. Say it out loud, The Whole Enchilada. Did you smile?

  3. Being a legend in your own mind is either a good thing or a very bad thing! I do love the cover though and the F56 has me wanting to know more! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you enjoy your weekend!

  4. I haven't read any books by her even though I've of course heard of them. I love the excerpt! I can just picture the type of guy she's describing.
