Reading List

This summer has really been nonstop even without school being thrown into the mix but I've still found time to read.  Usually my reading takes place at night in the bath or before bed and also on my lunch hour. 
All  Summer I've been chugging my way through Jackie Collin's Lucky Santangelo novels that are infinitely long but I still love them.  I'm currently on my 5th one and in between #4 & 5 I read the newest James Patterson Women's Murder Club: Unlucky 13.  Per usual it was awesome and I flew threw it just waiting on the next one....next year I'm sure. 
 
In the mean time I've stumbled across a few books that peaked my interest to read and also revisited a couple authors I enjoyed in the past and found they have a new book so I've added those.....

Here is a quick overview of each book provided by Amazon and my hopes of completing this little reading list plus some by the end of the year.




Suspicious: 4 (On the Run)


Amazon Synopsis:
Zoe and Jack’s trip to Rome was supposed to be a romantic one-year anniversary celebration with a little business on the side. Jack’s fledgling security company has landed the plum assignment of providing additional security for the opening night gala of a museum exhibit featuring priceless gems. However, the easy job turns complicated when they discover the exhibit is the next target of a cat burglar who has struck several times in recent months, snatching up a hoard of sparkling jewels. Opening night goes off without a hitch, but then the police accuse them of switching the real gems for fakes. With the exhibit’s organizer missing and planted diamonds showing up in their belongings, Zoe and Jack are forced to delve into the shady side of the diamond trade in a search for the culprit, a journey that takes them from the fountains and piazzas of the Eternal City to the snow-capped Alps.

The Vampire Diaries: The Salvation, Unmasked #3


Amazon Synopsis:
Love is the most powerful force of all…
Elena Gilbert is dying. When Damon Salvatore avenged his brother Stefan’s death, he broke the sacred deal he’d made with the Guardians—and put Elena’s life at risk. She should be dead, but instead, the Guardians are offering Elena a once-in-a-lifetime chance: to start over. Ever since she met the Salvatore brothers, Elena’s love for them both has caused endless death and destruction. But if Elena can return to the beginning—her senior year of high school, when she first met Damon and Stefan—and prove that she can exist alongside them without either of them killing a human, then Elena can live. But the Damon of years ago is unpredictable, rash, and dangerous. The only way for Elena to save everyone—including herself—might be to give up the Salvatores forever. Will Elena be able to sacrifice her own desires for the greater good? Or is her path to tragic love already written in the stars?

Supreme Justice



Amazon Synopsis:
Could an individual or group be trying to tip the balance of the Supreme Court by killing justices? As soon as I heard the setup of Supreme Justice, I knew I wanted to publish it. Inspired by the same modern-day polarized political environment that makes House of Cards so captivating, it’s the kind of scary, thought-provoking concept from which great thrillers are made. But Supreme Justice is more than just a good concept. It’s a deftly constructed, fast-paced story by one of the most decorated and esteemed American mystery writers. Best known for Road to Perdition, Max Allan Collins is the author of more than 100(!) books and the winner of too many awards to list here. One of the things I love about Supreme Justice is the pair of compelling sleuths working the case: Joseph Reeder is a former Secret Service officer and an expert in kinesics—the science of facial expressions and body language—which gives him a Sherlock Holmes–like ability to notice what other people don’t. A hero for taking a bullet for a president, he is also ostracized from the government after sharing his dislike for the very leader he saved. Then there’s Patti Rogers, a driven FBI agent who gets paired with Reeder for the first time on this high-profile case. She faces the most interesting, challenging, and emotionally wracking decision in the book: should she put her job and her life on the line out of loyalty to a partner she’s known for only a matter of days? As they wade into the case of the murdered justice, their journey is a breathtaking inside-the-Beltway page-turner from a master of mystery.

Wedding Night Sophie Kinsella


Amazon Synopsis:
Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose, but then his big question involves a trip abroad—not a trip down the aisle. Completely crushed, Lottie reconnects with an old flame, and they decide to take drastic action. No dates, no moving in together, they’ll just get married . . . right now. Her sister, Fliss, thinks Lottie is making a terrible mistake, and will do anything to stop her. But Lottie is determined to say “I do,” for better, or for worse.


The Vacationer's


Amazon Synopsis:
An irresistible, deftly observed novel about the secrets, joys, and jealousies that rise to the surface over the course of an American family’s two-week stay in Mallorca.  For the Posts, a two-week trip to the Balearic island of Mallorca with their extended family and friends is a celebration: Franny and Jim are observing their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary, and their daughter, Sylvia, has graduated from high school. The sunlit island, its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, also promise an escape from the tensions simmering at home in Manhattan. But all does not go according to plan: over the course of the vacation, secrets come to light, old and new humiliations are experienced, childhood rivalries resurface, and ancient wounds are exacerbated.  This is a story of the sides of ourselves that we choose to show and those we try to conceal, of the ways we tear each other down and build each other up again, and the bonds that ultimately hold us together. With wry humor and tremendous heart, Emma Straub delivers a richly satisfying story of a family in the midst of a maelstrom of change, emerging irrevocably altered yet whole


Happy Reading
