Welcome to another Wednesday event, hosted by Sam, at Taking on a World of Words.
I was going to get a really early start this morning, but woke up to no Internet, no TV, and no landline! Used my cell phone to call the service rep and get everything up and running. It only took a half hour, but I feel wiped!
I haven’t done this meme in a while, and then, I think I did it only once or twice. So here goes:
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
Monday’s Lie, by Jamie Mason, is an intriguing thriller about spy games, secrets, lies, and betrayal. I stayed up really late last night, as I couldn’t put it down. I’m eager to get back to it again!
I finished Crash & Burn, by Lisa Gardner, another thriller. (Click title and/or cover for my review).
My review begins like this:
From the very first page of Crash & Burn (Tessa Leoni series), we are drawn into the mind of a woman, tortured by the confused thoughts in her head, as well as bits and pieces of memories. After she catapults over a ravine in her SUV, she manages to climb out of it. She keeps calling out for someone named Vero, as she crawls up the ravine from the crashed car.
Investigators believe she is referring to a missing child and spend hours searching.
The Rocks, by Peter Nichol, will probably be my next read. If I seem hesitant, it’s because I have read mixed reviews of this one…so I am a little nervous.
Set against dramatic Mediterranean Sea views and lush olive groves, The Rocks opens with a confrontation and a secret: What was the mysterious, catastrophic event that drove two honeymooners apart so suddenly and absolutely in 1948 that they never spoke again despite living on the same island for sixty more years? And how did their history shape the Romeo and Juliet–like romance of their (unrelated) children decades later? Centered around a popular seaside resort club and its community, The Rocks is a double love story that begins with a mystery, then moves backward in time, era by era, to unravel what really happened decades earlier.
So now I’m off to see what everyone else is reading! I hope you’ll stop by….
