The Rosie Project / Graeme Simsion

A delightfully engaging summer read! Don Tillman is a professor of genetics who also has Asperger’s Disorder – unbeknownst to him, as he believes his approach to life is “perfectly rational and logical.” He decided that it is time to find a wife, and devised an orderly, evidence-based questionnaire to conquer the “wife project.” Bartender Rosie captivates his attention and they soon become involved in unexpected ways.

Humorous, entertaining, endearing, and witty…this book made me laugh out loud from cover to cover.

Title/Author
Mary Higgins Clark

Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories is an easy pleasant read. Unlike most of Mary Higgins Clark’s books, this is a compilation of short stories. I like the short story format for a change of pace and her stories are well written, easy and enjoyable to reach. It is the perfect book to carry with you and to be able to read a story in one sitting. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a well written mystery, suspense psychological thriller. A husband and wife move from NYC to a small town where the husband grew up to take care of ailing parents. The wife disappears on the day of their fifth anniversary and leaves a trail making everyone believe that she is dead and the prime suspect is the husband. It was a little slow at the beginning until I got used to the writing style but one I became used to that it was a book that I did not want to put down. it would be a wonderful beach read.

In An Instant by Lee & Bob Woodruff

In an Instant is a book about Bob Woodruff who was injured by an IED that struck the Humvee he was traveling in while covering news stories in the Middle East. I learned a lot about what the initial injury, subsequent surgeries and the road to struggle learning the most basic skills. It is truly a miracle that he survived and is now back in the news business but not as an anchor. It is a heartwarming story of a wife and family that traveled an unfamiliar road to do what ever was necessary to keep everything together. The book shows the meaning of love under extreme circumstances and that a person is much stronger than they ever realized going through this experience. I would definitely read this book again it was that good.

Loved this book. All his books are action packed and thrillers to the end. Reading the whole 20 book series. Hope they never end.As an innocent hitch hiker he gets a ride and ends up in a murder conspiracy. But being an ex-military policeman he begins to put the puzzle pieces together. Good read
