This was a cute book, about Allen who escapes his nursing home through a window. He meets new friends who he gets in and out of trouble with.
You also get to know what he did for his life leading up to his age of 100.

Tianarose I picked up a copy of this book recently. Looking forward to getting to it (eventually) 2w
bookaholic1 @Tianarose Yeah I know the feeling of EVENTUALLY reading a book. I bought this in 2017, and finally read it. How easy books can get lost in a bookcase, lol😁😁😁 1w
Tianarose @bookaholic1 if that‘s the average then I guess I will be reading this in 2021! 1w

Solitude Creek | Jeffery Deaver
post image
Pickpick

Love Jeffery Deaver, haven't read one in awhile and asking myself WHY??
A tragedy occurs at a small concert venue on the Monterey Peninsula. Cries of fire are raised and, panicked, people run for the exit doors, to find them blocked. People either die from being crushed, or are seriously injured. But it's the stampede that killed them, there was no fire.

Loved this book

I really enjoyed this book, had me wanting to listen to it in one day, but decided to take the time of listening a couple hrs a day.
I feel this is one of this author's best. WHO you may think could be behind the warnings, to a mother in pain in the death of her son. Will surprise you.
All the secrets will keep you wanting more. A great read, I promise🤞🤞

To start a mother is beheaded in a park, and her son has gone missing. To help with the case is a man that was kidnapped and held in a silo for many years, the man who kidnapped him he called the father, is he still alive or is it a copycat? Great read.

Detective John Rebus is always a great character to read about in Ian Rankin books

Jinster Oo I've been meaning to read Rankin for a while but just haven't got round to researching and picking. Any advice? I've read Larsson, Nesbo and a few others, are they similar? ☺ 3mo
bookaholic1 @Jinster pretty well, my first Ian book was THE FALLS years ago and was hooked. He seems to grab you at the beginning and keeps you there. He's an easy read too. I haven't read them in order. He's definetly up there as a great writer. I would pick one up at a second hand store or library, just to see what you think. That's what I do🤞👌👍📚 3mo
