It is about a man who is after the person who killed his wife and twin daughters in a car bombing. Then a few months later she discovered she is pregnant. She has three identical triplet boys and she tries to find the man she spend the night with but with no luck. Then she runs into to him like three or four years later. I think at this point the triplet boys are around three years old and he then protects her and his sons because the man she had been dating for the last six months is the one who initially killed his wife and twin daughters. I think the triplets names were Ryan, Sean and unsure of the other one.
If anyone one remembers this I would greatly appreciate it. I loved this book and would love to read it again. I scanned through the last post but not these ones yet. So if someone has already asked about this book just point me in the right direction please.
I mostly remember scenes ant he plot and I think it was a Harlequin. But it was about a guy, who used to be a surfer I think and now he works for or owns a magazine and is doing a photo shoot of the new swim line. Back when he was still surfing he met a girl had an amazing night with her but was so drunk he only remembers the tattoo on her back and not her face.
She owns a shop now that sells organic fiber? Very hippy. I remember the part where she, I think, bets him that her swimsuits are better and she can make the models look better in the shoot than he can. He makes her wear one of her own suits and realizes that she is the one he was looking for and when he asks why she never said anything she tells him that she already knows who he is. Please help me find this book. It's driving me nuts! I read this 4 or 5 years ago and think it was a fairly recent publication.
It's historical European, maybe early s. The hero is in London with friends. His wife is there. It was a marriage of convenience, and they had never lived together. She was struggling to hold the estate together. She nurses him and they fall in love. The villain ends up trapping them in the same mausoleum, but they escape and live HEA.zsolligaforhard.gq/98.php

Can someone please help me name this book its been driving me nuts for years! It is right after the Civil war in America. The heroin is of raven hair and they make mention of it that its so midnight black. He plays and gambles away her horse to a rich handsome horse breeder. She runs away but eventually goes to him because he threatens to place her father in jail. She becomes ill and he nurses her back to health after which she agrees to become his mistress.
He then takes her to France and she finds out she is going to have his child. She fears he wont want it after a misunderstanding and so runs away. He searches for her and finds her. She rejects him. He and her then finally reunite at his big house. I read this many years ago. I want to say that there is a woman with black hair on a horse in the cover but i could be wrong.
It may also have the word raven or midnight or dark angel in it.. Hi everyone, I would appreciate the help if anyone knows of a book that I've been searching for a few years now. What I remember is that she has been betrothed already. She's really good with her bow and arrow. When the hero meets her to marry her, she's being attacked at her house in the woods as he meets her. She believes she's in love with a friend she's known since childhood. But she starts to be really attracted to her hero. She freaks out of how attracted she's becoming of him so she convinces her twin sister to say that she's feeling ill in her bedroom and she escapes in either a rug or trunk I vaguely remember and then goes on horse back to her childhood friends house.
Without realizing that's she's being followed and she's the one who's been the target this whole time. Sorry I wrote a super long post. Thanks Kate Hi, I've been looking for a particular historical romance for weeks now. I read it at least 6 or 7 years ago, maybe more. It is similar to 'Flowers from the Storm' by Laura Kinsale in that the Hero is struck down by something that makes everyone believe he has become an imbecile.
I think he might be a Duke or an Earl? It is set in England maybe regency or just before. There is something about all the other family members dying or being killed by the French? I'd be most grateful if anyone knows what this book is. I'm new to librarything and I'm really hoping someone will recognize a book from a very brief description because I can't remember more than the basics of the plot really.
Years ago I read a romantic mystery about a cold, cruel twin who convinces her twin sister to take her place. The cold, cruel twin is in a very unhappy marriage and has a daughter who she doesn't seem to care about at all. The nice twin goes along with her plan for some reason and falls for the husband and the little girl. The husband at first is baffled by her new, kind behavior because he was used to her gold digging, heartless twin and unaware she had a twin. Eventually he starts to fall for the new twin still thinking its his wife.
Sorry, that's all I can remember. I know its not very specific. If you can think of any plots that fit, please let me know! That's it!!!!! I'm so happy I could cry! Thank you Anna :. Check out the old thread "name that book" Allright gals and? Something like temptation or scandal I think this is the most likely please please help. Posting again in the hopes that someone will end my torment!

Turns out the brother she was married to was gay. That's all I can remember. Hi, I am looking for a romance book I believe it may be from the 80's or 90's. It was about a tree sprite or nymph who awoke from a long sleep to a man coming to this very old house in the winter.

I've read both of those books and they're not the one I'm looking for. Thank you, though. Please HELP! I don't remember the name or the author, but I remember that its about a woman who walks in on her husband and he's having a threesome with his secretary and another man. She feels horrible because he was horrible to her and made her feel horrible about herself I think he called her fat, etc. I don't remember what happens after this but eventually she meets this like super hot rich entrepreneur guy, who's like in computer technology or something and she ends up living with him for a bit and they fall in love.

He meets a woman, falls in love - but if they marry - he then needs to become Lord X and everyone will know he has two identies.
This is in reply to post 66 cmboyd This sounds familiar to a Sandra Brown novel I read some time ago. However, in the book the heroine was not a twin but a look-alike and she took the evil look-alike's place after a plane crash. I don't know if this could be it The first I do believe is a Harlequin or Silhouette. The heroine arrives from the country to net a husband. She has her old nanny and a younger sister who is very beautiful, but has intellectual disabilities.
At some point, someone tries to kidnap her sister. The heroine eventually gets married to a reformed rake who is ashamed of his past. The second book is actually the first part of a trilogy. It was also an historical set in England. All I remember is that there were three sisters who somehow became separated and they belonged to a theatrical family. The third is more recent and is the first of a trilogy of three sisters.
Also an historical, the sisters are fashionistas and set up their shop in London. This story is about the oldest sister who has a daughter. There is a fire started by a rival that burns down their shop and they move into the love interests home. If so, you might be interested in knowing that the third book in the series is due out this month.
I loved it! I've been finding this book for years!!! But she went nevertheless, but ultimately she came up and went back to the shack where they made love. There was another scene where she felt someone staring at her from the woods. Please if someone know the book title help me out!!
Thank you so much! I think my hero is an Earl. Again thanks - I'll get there yet. Everyone have a Great Thanksgiving! Thank you 82ktleyed! I've being going quite mad, especially as I'd like to read the sequels. Gonna to ask again. I'm looking for three books now. Is the heroine goes to Dawson city then to the goldfields to locate her father Hero's name is Logan I believe. She ends up marrying him and they leave to go to his claim by dog sled. She still ends up sleeping with him and gets pregnant. She then ends up being employed by the hero's wife who is also pregnant, making her dresses.
The wife discovers the other woman is pregnant and does not know its her husbands and shames the woman. The wife also ends up trying to kill her own child with a pillow but is stopped and I can't remember if they put her in a home or what but the hero ends up with the Heroine and finds out she has his baby as well.
This one takes place in Australia on a sheep ranch. He is supposed to be engaged to her sister. She offers to marry him in her sister's place. Also they're father wanted the sister to marry the man so he could pay off the family's debt. Hi I am looking for 3 novels. I think there may be more. They might be half brothers.
There mom has remarried. One of the books there is an art gallery and the woman who runs it gets kidnapped by her brothers drug running friends. The other book one of the sons has a daughter. Help me please. Hi first I want to excuse myself. I am looking for a novel. I just remember there was kind of a bet about a mansion going on between the hero and the heroine because of the heroes brother. I was kind of just looking through the book, I haven't really read it.
Hi everyone. Just found out about this place, this looks great. English not my first language, so sorry for any mistakes. I read some posts from the previous thread and I recognized a couple books that I'm also looking for I think Can't remember the author, much less the title or the characters names. The 1st was posted in ' It is set in England near the Thames. In the beginning the heroine is a highwayman dressed as a boy and is in charge of a group of orphaned boys.
She tries to rob a nobleman and he captures her and takes her to his home to be punished. When they go to spank her they figure out she is a she and he decides to keep her and train her to be a lady. In the end she ends up being or looking like someone important that they were looking for all along. Some other random things: I think she had her first "tub" bath and compared it to bathing in the Thames. I believe she had long red hair. During regency time in London, somehow the heroine is passing as a servant boy in the hero house, I think that she tried to rob him, but the hero was sorry and gave her a job instead and then the hero some lord starts to have feelings for the 'boy', when he finds it's a girls instead, he makes her his mistress and in the end eventually they get married.
I think that she also was someone important who was kidnapped and got amnesic. I'm starting to feel that I'm mixing 2 stories The 2nd was posted in ' I think he was drunk or something and she tries to rob him and his friend and he catches her and forces her to marry her. Shes actually suppose to be an aristrocat who got kidnapped when she was young.
I remember then the heros father teaching her how to be a lady and then launching her into society and shes all beautiful and witty and successful. The hero falls for her without realising shes his wife and i remember how she kept visiting the streets to feed some orphans or something and the hero meets her there again asking for a divorce or something along the lines Hi- new member - : I am looking for a futuristic romance from the 80's or 90's.
A female pilot or law enforcer of some type crashes on a prison planet. The decedents of the original prisoners are living there and have formed a somewhat barbarian like society swords, etc. She and the hero fall in love and eventually leave the planet. There is some political strife, as the decedents of the original prisoners were being kept on the planet even though they hadn't done anything.
I can't really remember the details. The heroine had a vine tattoo that wrapped from her foot, around her leg, across her back, to "bloom" on her chest. I think she had red hair. I kept thinking this book was by Elizabeth Lowell or someone mainstream but I can't find it anywhere. Anyone have a clue what book this is?
Thanks for any thoughts!! The first book was Warrior's Woman. I know the female lands on the heros planet when her planet is invaded. The hero's planet is a barbarian planet where woman are second class citizens. He ends up going back with her to help her planet out. I don't think she had a tattoo but maybe its another book in the series? Hi all. Im new to this and its all because im desperate to figure out this book.

The story starts where a beautiful virgin young woman daughter of a man of power - probably a politician gets raped by a fat, short and old diplomat not really sure if he's a diplomat but he scares the girl by saying she can't tell anyone 'coz he has immunity in that country.

Lucky is about 1 lb and will be between lbs when fully grown. When we went to the farm to choose him, I wanted the quietest, most timid creature they had. I found Lucky hiding behind a large plant by himself, shaking. He was terrified and docile.
The breeder swore he would fit in with our geriatric Maltipoo well due to his timid nature. She lied. Twenty-four hours after Lucky came home, he unleashed his true personality. Lucky is not timid, shy, docile, or quiet. There are days I call him Beelzebub and that is when I am feeling kind. Because he is so tiny, I have stumbled and tripped over him. All my pants and pajama bottoms have holes where he sinks his teeth in and holds on as I drag him from room to room.
He has shredded the underside of my new family room furniture, peed all over my cream carpets, and eaten a ridiculous amount of my grand-daughters stuffed animals. He dives off furniture, launches from couch to chair to table. Lucky has destroyed my house, furniture, and clothes, but none of that matters because he has stolen my heart. Six Months Blurb:. For twenty years, Mikala Jacobson had it all: loyal friends, a precious little girl, and a man who adores her.
Then double tragedy strikes and her perfect world shatters. With their help, Mikala finds strength to rebuild and redefine her life. As her spirit and heart heal, she not only finds closure, but the beauty of a new love built upon an old friendship. A cold, hollow ache took residence in her belly where the knot of dread made its appearance that morning. The sensation expanded with alarming speed, dug in deep, and planted roots. Like an unwanted guest appearing without warning and bringing too many bags for just a brief visit, sorrow moved in, shifted, and stretched then got comfortable for the long haul.
When the house line rang, Mikala froze, and her gaze darted to the cordless on the couch. Her breath stuttered. Her heart seized. Clarity forced its way past the tentacles of sheer terror strangling, dominating, and paralyzing her. She shook her head and took a step forward, only to be hit by a wave of dizziness and nausea so tremendous, she doubled over wrapping her arms around her womb. Her breaths grew shallow and choppy, and her legs turned to rubber.
The cord tethering Molly to her and this world had been severed. The telephone rang four times before Mikala forced her body to cooperate. People said she was strong——the strongest woman they knew. They said in time she would heal. She would build another life. People were idiots. They had no idea how in her head she raged. She howled, and shrieked, and wailed…and begged, and pleaded for mercy. All day. All night. Every day. Every night.

The book is part of the Deerbourne Inn series, all stand-alone books about a fictional small town and residents in Vermont.
I hope you enjoy reading about this mystery. Blurb: Paige Norman believes in a tangible, explainable world. When her ghost-hunting niece comes for a visit, she tries not to scoff. But someone, or something, is stirring up trouble at the Deerbourne Inn and her niece, Jillian, is at the center of the mystery. Paige is certain the handsome Aussie photographer is behind the unexplained disturbances, and she warns her niece to stay clear. Has her niece attracted a stalker or has she conjured an evil presence?
Can the culprit be the man who has captured her heart? He nodded a friendly greeting to her, his gaze grazing past to include others on the porch. Her heart skipped a beat. Oh, to be twenty-five, even thirty-five, again. His gaze settled on her niece, and as always happened to men where this girl was concerned, his jaw slackened, then tightened. Next to her, Jillian grew still, lifting wide blue eyes to the newcomer. The moment passed. He was through the front door and into the lobby, and the door closed behind him.
He appeared to me in a dream. She lifted one hand and rubbed the back of her head, then gave a shiver. Learn more at juliemhoward.

A Gentleman in Moscow was my favorite book last year. Have you started savoring Dickens yet? Did anybody feel the same? One of my many favorites of last year. Thanks for the recommendations. I wish there was more of it! It is a classy classic horror story unlike anything you have ever read. Very well written and full of Southern lifestyles and elegance.
He knows his setting well, too. This is one of the best and most unsettling books I have read. He is or was one of the ten or so masters of the genre. Not sure how I stumbled across this post, but thanks! I had read a few of these and enjoyed them, so downloaded a couple of these as audiobooks and have loved them! Haha Katie. I only listen to books or I would never get anything done.
I too, came across this site and am downloading as many books as I can. Listening to What She Knew, which someone on here recommended. Hi Sandy, I use Overdrive a lot. I have several library cards. I also find a lot online at torrent sites. Keep your head up there for a while longer and keep looking. The rest of us will have a civilized conversation. The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss is very good. Of course it depends on what you like. I found it touching and interesting. She meets a lot of people and the experiences she has help her grow.
She loves horses. You can check it out on Amazon. I like stories about horses and that surround horses or contain horses and stories about other times and stories about women who do things differently. I hope you give it a try! But the books… until 3am reading for sure on the first 2 or 3 in the series. Unfortunately outlander took me months to read! I found them very slow reads and not one you can read in 24 hours. Even switching to audio it took me weeks to finish the book.
Well, different strokes for different folks, I always say. The first book was good but the 2nd book just dragged for me! Sorry outlander fans. Hated the second book of the series…took me forever to finish. Finally, just skipped parts. The rest of the series is great. Many readers had some trouble with book 2 and stopped reading the series. They are missing out on a great epic story. They are thick books…. I found them very compelling…and hard to put down though, even then it does take more than a day to read.
But I read the first one in about 3 days which is quick for a page book! I loved them. I did find a couple of titles on your list I will try though! So thanks! I always like to see what others put on their great reads list. Have your read any Jodi Picoult? Jodi picoult what I read were very good. I loved the storyteller that was the first one I read by her. I did like the tv show though.
My Sisters Keeper is one of my all time favorites. So different from the movie. I love how all her books have a surprising twist! The Storey teller was a great book! I just finished SmalGreat Things by the same author. I found it to be a good read. I have also been hooked on Jojo Moyes and enjoyes reading all the books I could find by her. The first Outlander was amazing. To me, they got steadily worse and repetitive after the first one. Funny, I was able to put Dark Matter down. I agree the Fault In Our Stars was great! Since you enjoyed that try Picoults My Sisters Keeper.
You will laugh you will cry! The whole series is amazing. Have you read Memoirs of a Geisha? Compelling, tragic but so satisfying to read! I reread it every few years-so good! A classic. True story too. I find Chris Bojalian books to be hour page turners for sure. They are though provoking, suspenseful, but very sophisticated and detailed. I also love that most of his books are set either in rural Vermont or the hip city of Burlington, VT.
I just read The Wonder by Emma Donoghue in 24 hours and came to this post to see if it was on the list. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Redeeming Love by: Francine Rivers. Francine Rivers is my absolute favorite Christian writer! Read in 24 hours or less. And any book by Laine Moriarty. Every one of hers I can never stop!! SO FUN to come across a list like this. Though The City, also by Dean Koontz took a few days, it was an excellent read! My newest unputdownable was very long, but so good. Edgar and Lucy by Victor Lodato. I just finished A Man Called Ove. It was one of my favorite books of all time.
Go read it or listen to it on Audible…the narrator is fabulous! All three I have read and I highly recommend all. Ove was great. We discussed A J Fikry at my book club. Read Guernsey a long time ago but I liked it. Listening to A Man Called Ove right now and love it. Find myself chuckling outloud as a I am out walking the dog!
My sister and I executed a one week, self-planned trip to Guernsey based on our total enjoyment of this book! Not even sure if I took a bathroom break. Loved them! Read any book by Edward Bunker. Christian books. Once I finish up this series I plan to read some of her others, she has written many.
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. By far my favorite read in a long time. Completely un-put-down-able Loved Ove as well! I read it a few months ago — mixed the title up with another one! Had to get through to stop worrying and feeling scared, and every other emotion! Great book! Read in 24 hours — I could not sleep until I finished it! It chronicles the life of a gal named Lucy, whose parents marry her off at 15 in the year to a 50 year old Civil War vet. Favorite of all time. I started 23 years ago. The audible versions by Davinia Porter are amazing.
My husband would never read them, but we are now listening to book 5. Fate Ball by Adam W. Jones Fantastic debut novel about love and loving someone with an addiction. A quick read and a powerful story. Aw I love this! Not a traditional book club but one for chitchat about books being read! Love Liane Moriarty! I have read everything she has written but Three Wishes touched home for me the most followed by Big Little Lies.
Nothing better than a good book. Anything by Charles Martin is awesome! What an incredible story!!!! I listened to this book!! The readers were two women and did an unbelievable job. Not to mention that the story was incredible. I felt like I was in the car with them. Another incredible listen is Story Hour. Speak by Lauri Halse Anderson. My daughter had to read it for school. We ended up with an extra copy. I started reading it before I went to worked and finished it that night. Stunning read! A Man Called Ove — I listened to it on audiobook and then reread it because it was sooo good.
I am reading Beartown, the latest book, read the first three and the short one on saying goodbye…had no problems with the others. This one is more difficult, the theme is much deeper than hockey, but all the hockey references slow me down! Loved Little Big Lies…and anything else by Moriarity. Just finished Hillbilly Elegy—a must read about a very poor segment of society. Also like The Girl in Cabin Ten. Love my books! BTW, there was also a movie made, and I was surprised at how good it was. Lots of details were left out, but whoever wrote the screenplay did an amazing job. Rare to find.
One of my all time favorites as well. I loved this book, but hated the ending to the movie.
In This Section
I thought the ending of the book was perfection. I cried intensely. Wow, three of the four you have above are also my all time favorites. I still miss PK and Owen! I listen to my books, a long commute. I received it as a gift from someone who knew I loved to read but not sure what I liked to read. Same person gave me The Power of One.

She is now my source of must have books. She is now my source for must have books. Some great books on this list! Another author I breeze through because their just that good is anything by Jessica gadziala. Both are so good but I could not put Shifting down and I have a hard time getting into anything else. The Art of Racing in the Rain, is probably one of my all time favorites!
Love dogs, loved the story, cried a lot. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern was so compelling that I read it for two days straight, hardly taking a moment to sleep! Oh to be loved like she was!!!
Christian Historical Fiction
I raced through Inconceivable by Tegan Wren. Would these books be good for a 16yo? Mainly avoiding graphic sexual content and super strong language? It is fiction based on a true happening…a horrific fire in that burned much of coastal Maine. Excellent book! I highly recommend it! Janet Evanovich — Stephanie Plum Series, have been reading this series for over 17 years, still makes me laugh out loud! All of Elin Hilderbran. The first book I remember reading in one sitting was The Color Purple. I had bought it the day before and that Saturday morning I picked it up to read a bit while having my coffee.
I absolutely could not stop reading…no chores done that day! Horrible user experience, kick them off your ad program! But thanks for the list. I would buy a few of them but my eyes are blinked by the rapid blinking of the ad. I will come back later! Some of them sound good. You need an ad block plug in or at least I think that is the proper term- but I know EXACTLY what you are talking about and an add blocker allows you to control what is popping up or blinking or flashing or scrolling or flapping and squalling… and generally interfering with your ability to focus on the content that you wish to enjoy.
I wish you well, content warrior! If you use Firefox, Ad Block Plus is an awesome ad blocker. Try Firefox or Chrome. Read each one in a day or less. Going to see what our library has from your list, I rarely buy books anymore. Over 13, reviews on Amazon. Her story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I loved that one too! Some people in my book club had trouble keeping the characters straight but I enjoyed it. But it was really interesting and well thought out. I loved it. I am staying away from The Lake House based on the description.
I loved Maude! Another great and spooky read is Graveminder by Melissa Marr, and anything Alice Clayton reads is instantly devoured by me. Great list—What Alice Forgot is great. All of the women are dirt poor in the midst of the Great Depression. Many are Native American. It is a non-fiction book that reads like fiction. I could not get past the first 60 pages. I tried I really really did, but every time I went to pick it up I was dreading it. I made it to page 60 and declared it a good attempt.
I have recommended it countless times. I prefer fast paced books, something that keeps me coming back for more. Thought it was overhyped. I LOVED Arthur, I had to wait a couple days to read another book after finishing because I just wanted to think about this book for a while and mourn the characters being over for me!
I stayed up 2 nights way too late to read it just because I felt so good while reading the book. Sister, Sister by Sue Forten was a great way to spend time on a plane. Layla Hagen- has a series about the Bennett family. Each book I have read in a day. I love the series and each book individually. The Rosie Project drew me in immediately, and The Paris Architect kept me thinking about it after it was finished. Loving Frank made me do some research. All great reads. Bittersweet by La Toya T Haynes! Read in a day…. Love a good contemporary romance novel. Thanks for the great list!
It truly moved me. Not a horror theme and totally compelling from start to finish. Loved this book. I am just amazed anyone can finish a book in an afternoon!!! Takes me days and even weeks to finish even the most interesting books. You ladies are amazing. Goodness Falls by Ty Roth is a great one-afternoon read! One of my favorite books! We Were Liars by E.
Lockhart is also an excellent book; I read it in two days. I read Of Sand and Ash and cant stop thinking about it. Beautifully written and both a romance and a history lesson. I just read I am the messenger by Markus Zusak. Oooh this looks goood! Will check some more on this list. Great post! Susan Meissner A Fall of Marigolds is a new favorite author of mine. She does her research and weaves it beautifully into her story! They must all be good because my library was out of ALL of them!
It was so good I could not put it away! Loved these suggestions! Ride in the squad car from the comfort of your favorite reading chair. It is a story about rescuing a baby wild blue jay and the family that raised and released him. He comes back everyday as the Mom has Ovarian Cancer. As the author says by the end you will wonder just who saved who! It is available on Amazon and kindle too. Pick any A. Riddle book if you found that one sci-first intresting. His sci-fi novels have this awesome Clive Cussler feel to them and will definitely keep you in suspense.
Wanna quick read? Great for a quick read on a portable. A fun little tale about the adventures of a Wish Facilitator. You have excellent taste. Every single book by Colleen Hoover! Her books are just that good! She really drags you into them and connects you with the characters. I was excited to find this list- I have it on my fridge! So far I liked You let me go a lot! And You will know me, enjoyed as well. Plus I mostly listen on audio , so maybe that contributed.
Seemed everyone loved that book but me. Thanks for the great ideas!!! Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. I read it a few weeks ago, and now I want to re-read it slowly to savor it. Just love love love them. I bought it for a plane ride; I was up early and thought I would read and sleep, but that was before I read the first chapter. Beautiful book! I finished it six hours later as we landed. I started telling my family all about it, only to find they had been passing around their copies to each other and friends. Loved it! These 2 books led me to reading everything that Liane Moriarty has published.
Looking forward to the other books. I will load some on my Kindle. All page-turners! Liane Moriarity has become my new favorite author!!! Which one did you enjoy more? I love this list and thanks for the feedback , What Alice Forgot will be my next one.. Hi Paige, I only listen to books because I need to multitask. I listened to What Alice Forgot and loved it. I believe if the narrator is good it makes the book even better.
Very helpful and I will check those out as well. Available through Amazon and well worth the read. My new favourite author. In a dark, dark wood. By Ruth Ware. A book you could read in 24hrs also. Thought I would share. It will become part of my summer reading list. Just finished in 48 hours. It was that good. Also a YA novels that probably appeals as much to adults as teens. Thanks for the suggestions! Read it in 24 hours. We read it for Book Club and we all agreed it was contrived…definitely not one of his best.
Luckily, I had asked an expert to speak about human trafficking who made the reading more worth while. Guest Room is better than his newest one Sleepwalker, but the new one is still a great read! I second that suggestion! Loved the complex, believable characters in the backdrop of World War II. You can find it on Amazon. Note: There is some difficult subject matter relating to genocide.
OMG it was so good. One to tetras every summer.
I love books by Amy Harmon. I read Sand and Ash in about 8 hours. Her characters are always amazing! Loved this list! Working on a few of them as I write this comment, but mostly just excited to go out there and buy a few new ones, thank you for sharing! Just discovered Julia Keller. Read her first: A Killing in the Hills. Now onto Bitter River…slower but really good. Loved Rules of Civility! Amor Towles is a genius. Highly recommend A Gentleman in Moscow, sublime story and characters. All of the books that I have read by the author Sharon Sala I have had real problems putting them down until I am finished.
Ever read the Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell? Dark Matter was fantastic! Thanks for the suggestion. Really liked What Alice Forgot up til the end. Then it got wonky. Love Josephine Tey but her books are so hard to find! Released May YA fantasy with adventure, a spirited heroine, and lots of fun! This is the 1st in a trilogy; 2 will be out May ! I think I had my roommates wait until I finished I may have driven us there! It was my intro to Vonnegut. Provenance by Donna Drew Sawyer. I got blindsided so many times I read the book in two and a half hours.
Also read Behind Closed Doors yesterday in one sitting. That one literally had me jumping out of my skin. The Passenger by Lisa Lutz!! Came out last year but I just discovered it. The Passenger indeed — you become the passenger and this is one heck of a ride!! I have never read a book in 24 hours in my life!! News of the World is the best book I read all year. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown was like this for me.
I read it non-stop this summer in any free time I had during and after my internship. A classic and fantastic book.
