Took a chance. So glad I did!
I enjoyed this book tremendously. I was familiar with the narrator but not the author. The story spools out in tantalizing bits and has some great twists towards the end. Will definitely check out other books by this author.
Freida Klein is Irresistible
I have loved Freida from the first book! Her character, her friends and family are all wonderful. I always enjoy the books. Each one is a bit better than the one before.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was anxious to read it because I had loved Magpie Murders. I do hope we will be reading more about Anthony and Hawthorne.

I loved this book. I was listening to it with Bluetooth headphones while gardening, and my neighbors may now think I am deranged. I was laughing abruptly one moment and then stopping mid-stride to gasp. This book was so good, I don’t care! I will doubtless listen to it many more times.
One book and I’m hooked
This is a genre of its own. Thriller, mystery, tale of redemption with passages that made me laugh out loud. As long as Joe Ide writes books, I will be his reader.

THIS WAS TERRIFIC
Harlan Coben knows how to grab your attention and not let go. Did not see the ending coming. Humor, sarcasm, suspense, all the things he does so well are here. Even a cameo by Myron!

The Scars and Sweetness of Life
A thoughtful story about the stories and scars we carry with us through life. How we cope with,over-compensate for or fold in on ourselves from the emotional weight of our past. I loved the compassion the writer has for these flawed and striving characters. This is a book the I will go back to.

Wonderful Return to Shetland
Ann Cleeves brooding detective Jimmy Perez is back with a new murder to solve. This story delves less into island life than some earlier books, but we get a glimpse into a bit of Jimmy's inner turmoil.

Tana French Never Disappoints
Another case for the Dublin murder squad. The story unfolds in ways that had me sure I'd solved it four or five different ways. Great revelations about detectives, victim and suspects. Loved every minute of it.

Like all of Ann Patchett's novels I have read, this one is wonderful. Ms. Patchett has a feel for story and dialogue, character and setting that never puts a foot wrong. Hope Davis' narration adds a wonderful pace and slight softness that serves the story well. I loved this book!
