Today I’m participating in WWW Wednesdays, at Taking on a World of Words 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?





Currently Reading:  I’m loving By the Book, by Julia Sonneborn: An English professor struggling for tenure discovers that her ex-fiancé has just become the president of her college—and her new boss—in this whip-smart modern retelling of Jane Austen’s classic Persuasion.



BOOKS FINISHED SINCE LAST WEEK: (Titles/Covers Linked to My Reviews)

The Winter Sister, by Megan Collins (NG-2/5/19)

Those Other Women, by Nicola Moriarty



The Liar’s Child, by Carla Buckley, will be released on March 12, 2019:  In this intense and intimate family portrait that moves at a thriller’s pace, a troubled woman faces a gripping moral dilemma after rescuing two abandoned children from a hurricane.  I have read several engaging books by the author, so I have bookmarked it on Amazon.


Synopsis:  On the outskirts of North Carolina’s Outer Banks sits the Paradise, an apartment complex where renters never stay long enough to call the place “home”—and neighbors are seldom neighborly. It’s ideal for Sara Lennox, who moved there to escape a complicated past—and even her name—and rebuild a new life for herself under the radar. But Sara cannot help but notice the family next door, especially twelve-year-old Cassie and five-year-old Boon. She hears rumors and whispers of a recent tragedy slowly tearing them apart.

When a raging storm threatens then slams the coastal community, Sara makes a quick, bold decision: Rescue Cassie and Boon from the storm and their broken home—without telling a soul. But this seemingly noble act is not without consequences. Some lethal.

Carla Buckley crafts a richly rewarding psychological portrait, combining a heart-wrenching family drama with high-stakes suspense, as the lives of three characters intertwine in an unforgettable story of fury, fate—and redemption.

    1. Thanks, Lafemme, I am loving By the Book…and while it languished for a while on my Kindle, I think I am reading it at just the right time.

      Enjoy your reading…and hopefully the slogging will end. I went through a bit of that in December!

  1. I really want to read By the Book; it sounds really good! I enjoyed The Winter Sister. I’ve never read anything by Carla Buckley, but I like the sound of the book, especially since it’s set on the Outer Banks, which is only a few hours away! Happy reading!
