Live To Tell (Book #1)

From Dawn Moore
Title:  Live To Tell (Book #1)
Author:  Wendy Corsi Staub
The first in a trilogy about a newly seperated woman and her children and a lost toy that can affect many lives. There were many subplots and points of view and at first it was difficult to keep track of all the different players but all worked out in the end which, probably could have been wrappped up sooner. It tended to drag a bit at the end. All told good plot great end and I will continue the series.

Cross

From Suzanne Boglioli
Title:  Cross
Author:  James Patterson
Cross is an exciting thriller featuring Alex Cross, the psychologist-FBI agent.  He flashes back to when his wife was murdered.  And he believes that current murders in the vicinity might be linked.  The book is also narrated in the perspective of Mike Sullivan, AKA The Butcher.  He is a professional hit-man, and Alex Cross and his partner John Sampson are hot on his trail. This is a real page-turner- I enjoyed my first Alex Cross book.

This is an urban fiction novel about a young ‘lady’ named Red who hustles her way through friends and men as part of her “hustle” She fakes pregnancies, double crosses..whatever it takes for the dollar. This genre is a guilty pleasure read that I was able to finish in a day on the beach. Twists and plots turns everywhere. Great fast read.
