This month I have some chick books, a historical novel, and a crime drama.
Confess: A Novel by Colleen Hoover
Should you read this one?
Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben
It just happens to be her husband!
There are some connected stories to this, of course! Joe comes from a wealthy family and had a younger brother that also mysteriously died. His sister, Caroline, is involved in the drama and his mother, Judith. Maya must somehow piece together all these characters and little bits of information and learn who she can trust. And there is where the drama begins! Who can she trust? Is it Shane- a veteran she served with in Iraq? Is it the police investigator, Kierce, who seems to be taking money from the family? How about her nanny, Isabella, and Isabella’s family? In the end, you will be totally unprepared for what happens! Fabulous book! Five stars for keeping me reading late into the night!
Everything We Keep: A Novel by Kerry Lonsdale
Guess what? The main character in this book is Aimee and the book opens with the funeral of her fiance, James, who is being buried on what should have been their wedding day. At the end of the funeral, Aimee is approached by a woman named Lacy who claims that James is still alive.
This includes opening her own restaurant and getting to be very good friends with a new man, Ian. However, after a year Aimee is still receiving information that James might indeed still be alive. What will she do? Is James alive? Ha! I will leave you hanging there and not spoil what happens. It was not what I expected, to be sure.
