Re: AUGUST 2022 READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

I just finished Dead Against Her by Melinda Leigh. It's book 5 in the Bree Taggert mystery series. I enjoyed this book more than book 4. It held my attention so much that I stayed up late last night to finish it! It's been a while since a book made me miss out on sleep LOL. 

 

I've read a few duds this summer that aren't worth listing.

I listened to Danielle Steele's Neighbors on an audiobook, really enjoyed it.  I like to listen to audiobooks while doing housework.

Finished The Good Sister! It was so good, I really liked it and felt like the author did such a good job with the complexity of it......I won't be reading for the next week, as I will be on vacation at a Church Retreat.

 

However when I return I will be starting The Housemaid by Freida McFadden!

Finished Elsewhere by Alex Schaitkin.  I really didn't like her first one Saint X but decided to give this a try.  It was better but weird.  It was classified as Sci Fi/Fantasy on Amazon.  I've never read anything sci fi but it was pretty good.

Re: AUGUST 2022 READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

Yesterday I finished The Recovery Agent by Janet Evanovich.  It was published in March of this year.  I bought it at my public library book store.  It is introducing a new character and probably a new series where the main character is a woman who investigates insurance fraud.  This book found her trying to find a Blackbird pirate treasure.  It was like reading an Indiana Jones romp fighting some really strange bad guys.  It was a quick, light read, but it seemed repetitious and had no depth whatsoever.  I do not recommend this book.

Re: AUGUST 2022 READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

My latest reads were:

 

THE LIES I TELL by Julie Clark.  Good, but not great.  Another of those books that switch narrators every chapter, making it confusing at times.  This is about a woman who is trying to track down a female con artist and betray her to the world.  The author's previous book, The Last Flight was much better, I thought.

 

THE CHALLENGE by Danielle Steel - just so-so.  A group of seven kids are stuck on a mountain and need to be rescued.

 

Next up is Spencer Quinn's new book in the Chet and Bernie mystery series, BARK TO THE FUTURE.

 

@sandy53, I agree with you completely about Janet Evanovich's The Recovery Agent.  Very disappointing.  I thought the plot was a re-hash of that old movie, Romancing The Stone.

Re: AUGUST 2022 READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

Just finished Killer words by V.M.  Burns, I enjoyed this book.  it is a cozy murder mystery with an author and owner of a bookstore, a charming sleuth seeker grandmother, a group of senior citizens, 2 dogs and other charming characters all working together as friends and a community,
