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?
Always (e-book), by Sarah Jio (NetGalley – 2/7/17), “A heartwarming story of personal growth and the power of nostalgia . . . Fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Emily Giffin should enjoy this warm and compassionate novel.”—Booklist
I have been a fan of Jio for years….but it’s been a while since I read her last one. So I was pleased to find myself caught up immediately into this dual time-line story set in Seattle. Whenever I have to set it aside to do something else, I miss it. I can’t wait to get back to it after these little breaks.
The Stepmother (e-book), by Claire Seeber (click title for my review), was a twisty tale with fairytale references.
The Orphan’s Tale, by Pam Jenoff, (click for my review) was a review book from Amazon Vine, set in WW II Germany and France, with a circus as the backdrop…a great way for Jewish people to “hide in plain sight.”
Right Behind You (e-book), by Lisa Gardner, will be released on January 31, 2017.
Synopsis: Is he a hero?
Eight years ago, Sharlah May Nash’s older brother beat their drunken father to death with a baseball bat in order to save both of their lives. Now thirteen years old, Sharlah has finally moved on. About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his partner, Rainie Conner, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: They are all experts on monsters.
Is he a killer?
Then the call comes in. A double murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon. As Quincy and Rainie race to assist, they are forced to confront mounting evidence: The shooter may very well be Sharlah’s older brother, Telly Ray Nash, and it appears his killing spree has only just begun.
All she knows for sure: He’s back.
As the clock winds down on a massive hunt for Telly, Quincy and Rainie must answer two critical questions: Why after eight years has this young man started killing again? And what does this mean for Sharlah? Once upon a time, Sharlah’s big brother saved her life. Now, she has two questions of her own: Is her brother a hero or a killer? And how much will it cost her new family before they learn the final, shattering truth? Because as Sharlah knows all too well, the biggest danger is the one standing right behind you.
I love this author’s books, so I am counting the days. What did your week look like? What are you waiting for?
