…I’m not even going to try to apologize for dropping off the face of the earth again. It happened, we’re back, we’re moving on. Up on tap this month:
Three Wishes: In the midst of the mania surrounding Big Little Lies, I decided I wanted to check out what all the hoopla was about. Of course, the waitlist for Big Little Lies is 10 miles long, so I changed tactic and decided to read all of Liane Moriarty’s novels. Three Wishes is her very first book, so that seemed like a good place to start. PS – look ma, not a murder mystery!
The Good Daughter: Nearly 30 years ago, in the backwoods of Georgia, the happy Quinn family was torn apart by unimaginable violence. Now, violence has come back to the small Georgia town and the secrets of what really happened to the Quinn sisters three decades ago are brought to the surface. I mean… C’mon. How could you not want to jump into that? Pegged as both a “cold-case thriller” and a “psychological suspense,” the one promises to be the book of every crime junkie’s dreams.
The Child: The demolition of an old house leads to the discovery of the body of a teeny babe and crime writer Kate Waters asks “Who is the child?” What Kate finds is a decades-old mystery and and her quest for answers turns over stones that some people would have preferred to stay unmoved. This was a Book of the Month club selection and yes, yes, yes I’m excited to love this.
Right Behind You: This one is the latest from Lisa Gardner and y’all know how much I love her. Quincy and Rainie have fixed their marriage and are about to adopt a troubled, 13-year-old girl (be still my heart). The problem is, the murder they’ve just been called out to seems to have been committed by their soon-to-be daughter’s even-more-troubled older brother. Oh the DRAMA!
