The Sixth Man

From Paulette Aspesi
author: Baldacci, David
The Sixth Man
I love everything this man writes. Edgar Roy, an alleged mass murderer is being held at a prison for the criminally insane. Sean King & Michelle Maxwell are hired to help with his case. What follows is a conspiracy of major proportions. Edgar has an eidetic memory and is part of a secret government whereby he processes loads of government info from all the major intelligence agencies and makes sense of them. But some very powerful and influential people do not like this- they want to be in control. In the end truth and justice win out.

Cat Sitter Among the Pigeons
Dixie Hemingway finds herself kidnapped. She had been mistaken for the granddaughter, Ruby, of the man she is helping out with his cat. She is let go, but things do not go well for Ruby who is estranged from her race car driving husband, Zack, and has a baby also to take care of. In the end all is well with Ruby and her family, but Dixie’s boyfriend is going back to New Orleans to take a job and she is rightfully devastated. Good summer read. Five books precede this one & those really should be read first.

Sing You Home

From Paulette Aspesi
author: Picoult, Jodi
Sing You Home
Not one of her better books. Too pat. Too contrived. Too Pollyanna. Woman, Zoe, after ten years of marriage loses another child before it is born, and her husband, Max, feels that she no longer loves him so much as the wanting of a child. He divorces her and she finds love with a woman. Zoe & Max fight over three embryos and in the end he gives in, finds love with his sister-in-law and gives Zoe the embryos, and they all end up with the child growing up loving them all. SURE!

Wild Man Creek

From Hannah Columbo
author: Carr, Robyn
Wild Man Creek
I love Robyn Carr’s Virgin Series. This one is about Colin Riordan going to Virgin River to recuperate from a horrific helicopter crash. His family is
wonderfully supportive, but it’s his art that truly soothes his troubled soul. Jillian Matlock has rented an old Victorian with a promising garden in Virgin River. She’s looking forward to cultivate an organic garden leaving behind her high pressure job for some rest and relaxation. Lawsuit against her.

Before I Go To Sleep

From Hannah Columbo
author: Watson,S.J.
Before I Go To Sleep
In this well-written thriller, Christine wakes up every day unsure of who she is. She can’t remember her husband or the life they led together. She
can’t remember anything. She keeps a journal so that she can read it every morning and continue her life as if she remembers what happened yesterday. This book builds to an interesting climax that I won’t reveal here.

Guilt By Association

From Paulette Aspesi
author: Clark, Marcia
Guilt By Association
Never expected this good a book from her. Characters were great and it was an easy read. Hope this becomes a series. The heroine, DA Rachel Knight, is gutsy and funny. She has commitment problems and ended a relationship a while back that still has her upset. However, in this book, she begins to have feelings for a police lieutenant. Loved her two friends. Book has two plot lines, but they end up merging into one. Do not want to give away any more of the story. Read it yourself and enjoy like I did.

Dancing Lessons

From Donna Healy
author: Burke, Cheryl
Dancing Lessons
I found Cheryl’s story to be very interesting. I especially like the role Cheryl’s mother played in her life and how she came from a poor village in the Phillipines and went to build a company of her own. Cheryl’s mother is a very good business woman and has helped Cheryl to build her brand. This story goes beyond Dancing with the Stars.
