It’s Hump Day! And tomorrow is Turkey Day!
Already this week, I’ve done some shopping, had a spa day (yesterday), and read a little more on the book that seems to be taking forever!
Two If by Sea, by Jacquelyn Mitchard, has so much to recommend it. I know that my stops and starts are all me…since I need something either fast-paced or slow and comforting for this week. I am determined to finish it today!
Yesterday I got an e-ARC from NetGalley: a short story called The 4th Man, by Lisa Gardner.
FBI Profiler Pierce Quincy and Officer Rainie Conner return in a baffling cold case in this exclusive eBook short story by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Gardner.
A young woman is found strangled in the stairwell of a college library, only her sneakers missing. With no physical evidence, no signs of sexual assault, and no witnesses, all the police have to go on are the three men who were in the library with her: her boyfriend and two campus security guards . . . all of whom have secrets, none of whom can be proven guilty.
Five years later, ex-FBI profiler Pierce Quincy and his wife, former police officer Rainie Conner, agree to consult on the still-unsolved case, delving into deep background to comb for any clue that will lead to the woman’s murderer. But with no leads and the case colder than the body, will they be able to build a case against one of the three suspects, or is there a fourth man out there? And if the killer has eluded the police this long, how far will he go to ensure justice is never served?
The Murder Game is another I hope to read this week…It was written by “Catherine McKenzie writing as Julie Apple.” Julie Apple, of course, was the MC in Fractured, and she mentions her book in that story.
It has been raining on and off this week…and so far, it’s the soft kind of rain that I enjoy. A good rain for curling up, but not bad to run through if you have an umbrella.
Enjoy your week! What’s on your agenda?
