And so it begins . . .
Abduction by Robin Cook: This was pure escapist fluff – perfect follow up to Franklin’s very excellent but intense book.
Beach House by James Patterson: It was a quick read (all James Patterson books are). This one was not part of any of his series and was quite enjoyable.
The Childrens’ Blizzard by David Laskin: I heard about this one from the BookBrowse newsletter (which I will no longer get because it’s gone to a subscription and although it was nice, it wasn’t worth paying for). Anyway . . . the book was interesting, but not compelling. It had great potential to be compelling, but he kept stopping to take a step back and then losing momentum.
Die Trying by Lee Child: This is the second in Lee Child’s series. I like the Jack Reacher character. He’s got a great smartass attitude.
Eat Cake by Jeanne Ray: Short, sweet, light. It was a perfect counterbalance to a thriller.
Four Blind Mice by James Patterson: Part of the Alex Cross series.
A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber: Light, quick, feel good girly stuff. It was nice for a break in between murder mysteries.
