Title/Author The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Anne & Marco Conti seem to have it all- loving relationship, great home, new baby. But one night they go to a dinner party, and when they return the baby is missing. Their lives will never be the same again. At times a little predictable, but good writing, a lot of twists and turns, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end.

Title/Author
While My Pretty One Sleeps Mary Higgins Clark

As always, Ms. Clark engages the reader from the very first page. The NYC ex police commissioner is fearful that his daughter, Neeve Kearny, will be murdered just as his wife was decades ago. When a client of Neeve’s exclusive Madison Avenue boutique is found dead, the plot, as they say, thickens. There are many red herrings and I was surprised when the murderer was revealed. Of course, in the midst of mayhem, a love interest emerges. A book worth

Title/Author
Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann

Fascinating book.
Tells the story of the Osage Indians who were forced to move from Kansas to brutal conditions in Oklahoma until oil was found. Then they became the richest people per capita in the world. But they for the most part were not allowed to take care of their own money and many were killed by the white men who were supposed to be helping them. It took the infancy of the FBI to uncover much of this. But it is the writer of this book who uncovered even more.
Great research on his part.

Title/Author My Life With Bob by Pamela Paul

I found her personally to be very annoying. For most of her life she seems very self-centered, affected, liberal, and sanctimonious. Takes herself too seriously. Does not seem to really get other people until her second marriage & her relationship with her children. Also, her father’s death seems to have made her vulnerable & to understand how we should not be petty with those we love. This book was recommended to me because I am a voracious reader and take notes on almost all the books I read. However, did not find anything else in common with her. How many stars does the book deserve?
