I'm so behind on this series but finally getting started. Up to book 3 now. Easy, light reads though nothing to write home to mom about.

Booknerd2 I agree. I tried to get the into the series and just gave up, think I made it to C. 3y

Tell me a story and forget the fairy tales. It works for some but didn't work for me. I skimmed much of this book trying to get to the meat of the story.

Almost 50% read and I quit. I felt like I was forcing myself to read and that's not what reading should be. Reacher says nothing and a lot of nothing was happening in this latest Reacher novel. I hate to say that I think I'm done with this series. I haven't been able to finish the last 2 out of 3.

Read (actually I did the audio) this for the first time. A little long winded at times, it seemed to end abruptly but still a really great book. Glad I finally read it.

Behind Closed Doors | B. A. Paris

4.5. Excellent suspense! My only complaint is the lack of an epilogue, just a little something more. I didn't want it to end.

A Baxter Family Christmas | Karen Kingsbury

I think old fans of the Baxters or new will enjoy this book. But as a fan from the beginning I did have a few issues with the book. You can read more at Bookish Devices.

“He called it The Bridge because that was how he felt about books. They connected the past and the present, the present and the future. Books brought people together and gave them a path to worlds they would not otherwise experience.”

The Life She Wants | Robyn Carr

I‘ve never read a Robyn Carr book that I didn‘t like. Of course there are some I didn‘t like quite as much as others. The Life She Wants is one of those I enjoyed but it doesn‘t top my list of favorite Carr reads.

Woman of God | James Patterson

I liked this book and read it quickly enough but in the end I think it‘s a bit far-fetched. I‘ll stick with Patterson‘s mysteries from now on.

The moment when the title of the book makes perfect sense and causes you to cry harder. That this story is so personal to the author (please read the author's note) makes this story even more powerful.
