One of those books you‘re almost sad to have finished...Kya, an abandoned child raises herself in the swamps. As a young adult, she is attacked by a man she once thought of as a friend. Shortly thereafter he is found dead and she is arrested.

Whiskey Beach | Nora Roberts

Landon discovers his soon to be ex-wife‘s body & is accused of murder. He loses his job & friends, but nothing adds up correctly. Book started slow; I almost bailed, but I‘m glad I didn‘t.

Decker & Jamieson arrive for vacation with her family. However, some strange things happen in the house beyond their backyard that don‘t add up despite the storm and Decker & Jamieson fund themselves embroiled in a multi murder case that just might be tied into drugs & other weird goings on in the town.

Three Graves Full | Jamie Mason

Two separate acts of murder involved around one house. People have just disappeared. Until the owner of the house asks gardeners to replant a garden. This story makes you ask some questions. I‘d put it between a pick and a so-so. There were places it dragged, but the characters and their development was interesting.

A story about the damaged lives led by two men who survived an accident which killed their father and for which one of them was responsible. Their personal damage spills over onto others, damaging them. I think the author‘s intention was to write a hopeful book, but I‘m not sure she succeeded.

“There is very little peace for a man with a body buried in his backyard.” ....now that‘s a promising beginning. Looking forward to reading it.

A series of “accidents” finally include a murder. Hannah & her cupcakes become suspect, so she tracks down the culprit. Quick read/listen.

Wow! It is the telling of the story even more than the solving of the puzzle that draws you in and holds you in it‘s grip. I fought the answer all the way through. And, I‘m not saying more lest I ruin even one morsel for you.

Mshookquilts @TrishB Right!?! But, still, it was a fantastic read. I told my husband he‘d love it but, that at each red herring, he‘d be saying “please let it be true.” 1mo
TrishB It‘s a great series 👍🏻 1mo

‘“Do you have a gun?” Beauvoir whispered as they ran, crouched, to the corner of the house. Gamache shook his head. Really, thought Beauvoir. There were times he just felt like shooting the Chief himself. ‘

“‘Are they close?” His back tingled as he imagined something dreadful creeping through the woods. Toward them. “....So glad to be reading another of Louise Penny‘s books. She has such a way with words, great word pictures.

Detective Clah is working on a murder while trying to figure out why, who and how a local business man is being stalked & emotionally tortured. Fun read, but I could determine who was behind it all fairly early.

This was a delightful read. A love story and the mystery of a missing/ disappearing duchess told through 3 time periods. That may sound complicated but it actually flows very smoothly. Thank you @FeatherV for turning me on to this book.

I know this was a critically acclaimed book, but I did not think it was up to par with her other books. In fact, I found it tedious at times. A freed woman, who bought her own freedom, gives a picture of the era and the Lincoln family

I‘m so glad I listened to my daughters and read the book enjoyed the movie, but the book lets you get into the thought processes. Futuristic world about to go to war because the utopian set up really wasn‘t perfect.

On trial for murder of his step daughter, the jury seems against Noah. All of his testimony about how evil she was only makes him look guilty. Interesting twists, but I didn‘t really like her method of telling the story.

While a good book, this may be hard to read for those affected by Columbine, with 911 following 2 short years later. The protagonist has a hard life exacerbated by Columbine and the after affects experienced by his survivor wife and him as someone waiting to see if a loved one lives and then trying to be comfort for years after. A well written, but often depressing story.
