Do you want to curl up with a good book this weekend?

Then today is your lucky day!

Because I’ve got not one, not two but three for you. Each book different and unique.

Long flights are perfect for reading and I found these good talented authors to keep me company as I traveled.

Up first…

The Sanctification of Peter Kane  by Troy Stoops

The Sanctification of Peter Kane by [Stoops, Troy]

At first, the mixed reviews gave me pause. I wasn’t sure what to expect, offered through Kindle Unlimited so I thought, why not. And boy-howdy I’m glad I took a chance on Mr. Stoops.

I enjoyed this book so much, I returned the KU version and bought a copy to keep. It’s that good. Ever heard the old saying, “Truth is stranger than fiction?” That’s what popped into my mind as I read this book.

I also wondered where the author bought his crystal ball, the book was published in 2013. Twilight time. Be sure to open your mind and check your biases before you begin reading. To read my 5-star review on Amazon review… 

 

Next is…

The Millionaire’s Wife by Shalini Boland 

The Millionaire's Wife by [Boland, Shalini]This psychological thriller kept me on the edge until the last chapter. That makes for a great read. If you enjoyed Gone Girl, you will like The Millionaire’s Wife. Just what will someone do for money?

Kill, plan, and terrorize? All of the above is in this book. Ms. Boland earned five stars for the roller coaster ride of suspense. To read my 5-star review on Amazon review… 

 

Last but not least…

I Am Watching You by [Driscoll, Teresa]Where do I start? At the end. Why? Because there are few books that have brought me to tears. This is one. I read the last few pages through blurry eyes. Not because my eyes were tired or my Kindle on the fritz. No, the words danced because of the compassion rolling inside of me.

Ms. Driscoll tells a story of murder, loss, and deceit from the perspective of all too human characters. This takes talent. She makes the reader care about the people in her story. I can only hope to achieve this great feat one day.

I didn’t figure out guilty until the author revealed their identity. Now that is great story telling and very deserving of five stars. To read my 5-star review on Amazon review…

  1. My most favorite book this year, thus far, is “Tidewater” by Libbie Hawker. It is a thoroughly researched historical novel set in 1607 about the founding of James Town in Virginia and the real life lives of John Smith and Pocahontas. It is fascinating and Libbie Hawker is a strong literary writer. I gave it 5 stars. It remains one of my most favorite novels. K D

  2. These look great. Thanks for the recs! I just posted about some of the books I’ve read recently, so I won’t list them here, but I’m currently reading the second book in Angela Marson’s new thriller/mystery series. About an English detective whose personal skills aren’t the best, but her police skills are brilliant. Great series.

  3. Thanks for the great recommendations! I recently read The Return of the Courtesan, by Victoria Blake. I started following her bog (a blogging friend of a blogging friend) and Andrea Stephenson (Harvesting Hecate blog) gave a rousing review for the book, so I ordered it on Amazon. FABULOUS.
