Secrets of the Tulip Sisters/Susan Mallery

This was a very interesting book which brings back two estranged sisters into a small town. Their relationship is complicated as their mother left them when they were teens. One daughter ends up living with the mother while the other daughter lives with the father.

The plot brings the entire family back together and also establishes various relationships among them. A very heartwarming story which keeps the readers guessing as to the outcomes of all the characters in the book. Makes for good summer reading!

L.A.Requiem/Roger Crais

Always thrilling the Detective Elvis Cole is. He’s witty, charming and the “World’s Greatest Detective”. His partner Pike is cool, handsome & a hero to all. He is accused of murder but someone out for revenge is doing the killing. At first they think it is a serial killer but the web is woven deeper & deeper till the truth comes out. Excellent and hard to put down. I can’t stop reading, yet when I get to the end, I want more.

Title/Author
Cross Kill by James Patterson

Gary Soneji has been dead for over 10 years but Cross & Sampson are attacked, Sampson is on the brink of death & Alex saw Soneji do it. It turns out that there is a group of Soneji lovers who wear masks that look like him & are committing the crimes. It ends with ” To be continued!”
Why take a Bookshot (a book intended to be read in one sitting) & then make it “To Be Continued“. This should have been its own book with the needed pages to do what needed to be done- the come-back of Gary Soneji, or in this case his admirers, deserved no less. Very disappointing. Would not have read it if I knew that it did not end with this book.

Black & Blue by Jmaes Patterson & Candice Fox

Harriet Blue is a loner, but then she gets assigned to a case & is paired with Tate Barnes- another loner but ostracized by all the other police because he supposedly committed a brutal crime of killing a mother & her son when he was very little.
One theme centers a woman’s body being washed up on shore with Tate & Harriet being assigned to the case.
The second story involves a killer targeting female college students.
Did not like this story because as previously stated Bookshots should not end up in the air.
Great characters and plot which is shortchanged by the format.
