A good book: my turn-to when stressed

When I'm stressed-out, my turn-to is a good book in bed before I go to sleep. Well, I always prefer a good book at that time, although sometimes I force myself to read a harder book (often one that's very good for me).

So, I was stressed yesterday. Too many things happening, most of them good things, but a lot of stuff to do and process. Thankfully I had a good book to read, come bed-time.

This is about a doctor who gets caught up in a murder-mystery when a man she doesn't know is shot on her front lawn. The author seems to have thrown almost as much as he could think of at his protagonist to the point where you wonder how much more she can take before she cracks. The end is a little too sweet and perfect, but still this was an enjoyable read, especially when trying to relax in the midst of a busy, stressful period. Only trouble was: I read a little too late as it was hard to put down!
