Sharp Objects

From Suzanne Boglioli
Title:  Sharp Objects
Author:  Gillian Flynn
Sharp Objects is an exciting and fast-paced murder mystery.  Camille Preaker is a Chicago journalist sent to her hometown in rural Missouri to cover the murders of two young girls.  She befriends the lead investigator, and together they solve the mystery.  I read Gillian Flynn’s other popular books- Gone Girl and Dark Places, which were both excellent.  However, I liked Sharp Objects the best, and I’m looking forward to her next published work.

One False Move

From Dawn  Moore
Title:  One False Move
Author:  Harlan Coben
The 5th in the Myron Bolitar series, the focus is around a female basketball player with all the secrets and deception that you once again think you can figure out and then realize that you are totally off until the last pages. The ending was totally different than the first four books and I am still thinking about it and how it came together. This one gave me a total book hangover.  5 stars.

Lost and found: unexpected revelations about food and money

From Jackie Cantwell
Author:  Geneen  Roth
Lost and found: unexpected revelations about food and money
Well-known author Geneen Roth was another victim of Bernie Madoff’s investment scheme. What may differentiate her from other victims is her ability to lay bare her deep-seated, once subconscious beliefs about money and share these hard-earned truths with the reader. Her father’s entire family was killed in the Holocaust. Since he felt that God failed him and his family, he trusted no one and his life was dedicated to accumulating wealth and material things. As a young woman, Geneen was torn between wanting independence and depending on her father’s largesse for all her expenses. Geneen draws the parallel between our relationship with our fathers, our money, our choice of mates, and even our relationship with food. She encourages us to see if how we’re actually handling our finances jibes with our concern for the environment, our values, and our responsibilities to our families. She warns us that being willfully ignorant of our relationship with money, as she once was, can have dire consequences to our very souls.

And I Shall Have Some Peace There

From Margaret Mezzacapo
And I Shall Have Some Peace There
Author: Margaret Roach

I finished And I Shall Have Some Peace There by Margaret Roach. If I had to sum it up in one sentence, it would be, “My, Margaret, how you do go on.”

Ms. Roach waxes metaphysical to the extent that I just wanted to ask her to get to the point. I read this one first because, as a gardener, I had read her columns in Newsday. Glad I read it, but it really could have been condensed.
