These are the books I read this month:
A serial killer gruesomely murders women in Virginia while FBI profiler, Karen Vail, and her team tries to figure out the identity of the killer. The plot thickens when Karen's family history unveils twists related to the case. A little predictible and unlikely, but never the less, a page turner!
More Stephanie Plum fun, complete with Ranger, Morelli, Grandma, Lula, and the usual craziness. I love this series, but are the characters getting a little tiresome, or is it me? I am not laughing as much as I used to...
How about a TV series?
I thought I had read most of Maeve Binchy's older books, but somehow missed this when it came out in 2001. Ten year old Elizabeth is sent to live with the O' Connor family in a tiny Irish town during the war, when London is unsafe for children. She grows up with also ten-year old, Aisling, and her large, noisy, Catholic family. The girls become best friends, and the book takes them through life struggles, losses and marriage problems, testing their beliefs, loyalties and friendship. This is a heart-warming book about friendship, and at times, a tear-jerker.
TV newswoman Britt Shelly wakes up to find herself in bed with a Charleston police detective, who happens to be dead. She has no idea how she got there...
This page- turner involves a cover-up plot over what really happened involving a devastating fire five years earlier. Britt and ex-fire inspector Raley Gannon are on the run to get to the truth. There is lots of corruption, betrayal, lies, some romance, and there are enough interesting twists to keep you turning those pages!
Stop reading blogs unless you are done reading this! Go get it NOW! I LOVED it! (Even though it took place in Washington D.C., and not Rome!) Costco has it. Go NOW!
Robert Langdon is back, this time running through secret, underground, or hidden chambers in our capitol. There are plenty of codes, symbols, and a horrible villain you'll love to be shocked by. Twists and turns in this fast-paced thriller will keep you reading all night. I didn't want it to end.
