A GREAT HUMP DAY: SAVORING THE BOOKS…

Today I’m participating in Sam’s WWW Wednesdays Here’s how it works:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

***

Currently Reading:  Her Every Fear (e-book), by Peter Swanson, a scintillating, edgy novel rich with Peter Swanson’s chilling insight into the darkest corners of the human psyche and virtuosic skill for plotting that has propelled him to the highest ranks of suspense, in the tradition of such greats as Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins, Patricia Highsmith, and James M. Cain. (I borrowed this book from the library, via Overdrive).

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

Soon I’ll be reading another NetGalley ARC, release date April 10.  I can’t wait to start!

After Anna, by Lisa Scottoline

Synopsis:  Dr. Noah Alderman, a widower and single father, has remarried a wonderful woman, Maggie Ippolitti, and for the first time in a long time, he and his young son are happy. Despite her longing for the daughter she hasn’t seen since she was a baby, Maggie is happy too, and she’s even more overjoyed when she unexpectedly gets another chance to be a mother to the child she thought she’d lost forever, her only daughter Anna.

Maggie and Noah know that having Anna around will change their lives, but they would never have guessed that everything would go wrong, and so quickly. Anna turns out to be a gorgeous seventeen-year-old who balks at living under their rules, though Maggie, ecstatic to have her daughter back, ignores the red flags that hint at the trouble brewing in a once-perfect marriage and home.

Events take a heartbreaking turn when Anna is murdered and Noah is accused and tried for the heinous crime. Maggie must face not only the devastation of losing her daughter, but the realization that Anna’s murder may have been at the hands of a husband she loves. In the wake of this tragedy, new information drives Maggie to search for the truth, leading her to discover something darker than she could have ever imagined.

Riveting and disquieting, After Anna is a groundbreaking domestic thriller, as well as a novel of emotional justice and legal intrigue. And New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline will keep readers on their toes until the final shocking page.

    1. Thanks, Cleo, since I’ve been borrowing from the library, I realize I have to “power through” my ARCs and other books I’ve bought…without missing a beat. We’ll see how long that lasts.

      I am eager to move along with Her Every Fear…loved your review of it.

  1. You finished 4 books, well done! I’m usually happy if I finish two per week XD Everyone has their own pace I guess. Your current read has a very creepy cover, it must be a thrilling read. Enjoy!
