What’s Going On…
Happy Wednesday! Boy this week seems to be flying by. It’s also hard to believe it’s nearly August. Where has the summer gone?
Yesterday I made the grocery store rounds. It’s the first time I’ve been shopping by myself since my injury and it was nice to be able to just go get stuff done. I love to stroll through The Fresh Market and shop – it’s so neat and quiet there. Then I zipped over to Whole Foods. It was a madhouse in there! Very strange for a random Tuesday.
We’ve had a cold snap and it’s only 85* today! Tomorrow is supposed to be nice as well and I’ll take what I can get. The sassy cats will enjoy it when it’s cool enough to leave the front door propped open so they can look out the glass. Mind you we have two sets of glass back doors – but they all insist on keeping the front door open so they can see.
I’ve got to get some housework done but it’s just so dang hot! With the so-so air conditioner we have to be mindful of generating any extra heat in the house right now. It’s a temporary but handy excuse for why I just can’t do any chores. I’ll take it.
In Book News…
I finished The House at the Edge of Midnight (sooo good!) and I’ve moved on to The Last Good Girl. I’m on chapter 6 already. It’s fast and easy to read. I’m into it!
I wrapped up this one by Mary Kubica a few weeks ago and I suggest it for anyone who likes a good mystery/thriller. Loved it!! Here are my thoughts:

Mary Kubica has blessed us with her newest novel Don’t You Cry. It’s smart, satisfying and suspenseful and it will leave you wanting more.
Utilizing multiple narrators, the plot line builds chapter after chapter. Quinn, a college student in Chicago and her missing roommate Esther are one side of the story while the other is comprised of Alex, a virtually orphaned teen in Michigan who is captivated by a mysterious woman who has appeared in his small town.
Quinn is becoming increasingly desperate with each day that Esther is missing and she recruits a co-worker to help find her. Every clue they are able to find sheds a new light on Esther’s seemingly quiet, and ordinary life. When a possible secret lover and a former roommate that died under questionable circumstances turn up, Quinn is sure her missing roommate is not who she pretended to be. Maybe Quinn should stop looking for Esther – for her own safety.
In a small town an hour away a woman shows up in the diner where Alex Gallo is a dishwasher and he is immediately curious about her. In the type of place where new people don’t show up often, Alex tries to get to know the woman who he nicknames Perl. The more elusive she is, the more Alex becomes intent on finding out who she is and why she’s hanging around.
Don’t You Cry is expertly crafted to twist and turn the reader through a maze packed with gripping characters. In this jaw-dropping psychological thriller, you’ll think you have it all figured out only to find out you were wrong….so wrong. I loved this book and I know you will too.
Have a great day!
