Born to shop. Greg lies is one of my favorites. Wishing he had a new book coming out soon.

 

Since he is so fantastic, he won't mass produce like some of the authors I care not to mention.  GREG ILES is worth waiting for!

Everything Here Is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee (5 Stars)

Novel told in alternating points of view about mental illness. At the heart, this is the story of two sisters. Miranda is the responsible, older one and Lucia is the headstrong, unpredictable, younger one. It's a young woman's quest to find happiness, fulfillment, and a life unconstrained by her illness. But it is also an unforgettable, touching, yet painful story of the sacrifices others make to truly love someone . . . and when loyalty to one's self must prevail over everything else. Excellent read!

Re: WHAT ARE YOU READING? MAY 2020

I'm reading "A Divided Loyalty," the latest installment in one of my favorite historical British mysteries. Charles Todd is actually a mother and son writing team. I don't know how they do it but their mysteries are first-rate. The series, featuring Inspector Ian Rutledge, a WW1 veteran with his own PTSD ghosts, is a great read.

The Charles Todd books are good reads.  I like them because the police and detectives are in a time period without our modern day technology.  They solve mysteries and crimes by old-fashioned, but effective means.  They really talk to people, find out past family relationships and histories, and simply "put two and two together."  Very satisfying stories.  I haven't read your particular title, but I have read a few and I have one in a closet waiting to be read.
