Today I’m participating in Sam’s WWW Wednesdays. Here’s how it works:
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?
I couldn’t decide on one book to read, so I chose two from different genres:
The Beach Inn, by Joanne DeMaio: A new season of love, adventure, and heart-healing awaits in the quaint seaside village of Stony Point. So pull up a sand chair and book your stay for a page-turning getaway in The Beach Inn.
The Red Hunter (e-book), by Lisa Unger, a haunting story about two women, strangers to each other, and walking very different paths in the wake of trauma, they are on a collision course—because Zoey’s past nightmare and Claudia’s dreams for her future take place in the very same house. As Zoey seeks justice, and Claudia seeks peace, both will confront the monsters at the door that are the most frightening of all.
BOOKS FINISHED SINCE LAST WEEK:
(Click titles for my reviews)
The Swallow’s Nest, by Emilie Richards: Three women fight for the chance to raise the child they’ve all come to love…(An Author Review Request).
One Good Thing (e-book), by Wendy Wax. I have been a fan of this series from the very first book. An assorted cast of characters have remained at the core of these books. Supporting characters come and go, but the basic ones who were there from the beginning have kept me coming back for more.
Every Last Lie (e-book), by Mary Kubica – (NetGalley – 6/27/17). Alternately narrated by Clara in the present and Nick “before,” the story carries the reader on a fast-paced ride. Back and forth between the red herrings and the truth that seems well hidden, lurking beneath another sea of lies, I could not stop reading.
Today I stumbled upon an upcoming release from an author I enjoy: Karin Slaughter’s The Good Daughter, with a release date of 8/22/17.
Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried forever…
Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.
