A WEEK OF ENGAGING 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:  Day of the Dead (e-book, Frieda Klein Novel), by Nicci French: the final book in this extraordinary series is here. And it’s an ending you’ll never forget.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

I have been waiting for quite a while for the newest Paula Daly book, Open Your Eyes, and now that it is on my coffee table, I can’t wait to read this surprising and gripping thriller of pride, ambition, and envy, an unsettling whodunit about the illusions of a perfect marriage that confirms Paula Daly as a writer at the forefront of domestic suspense.

Synopsis:  Jane Campbell avoids confrontation at any costs. Given the choice, she’ll always let her husband, Leon―a bestselling crime writer―take the lead, while she focuses on her two precious young children and her job as a creative writing teacher. After she receives another rejection for her novel, Leon urges Jane to put her hobby to rest. And why shouldn’t she, when through Jane’s rose-tinted glasses, they appear to have the perfect house and the perfect life?

But then Leon is brutally attacked in their driveway while their children wait quietly in the car, and suddenly, their perfect life becomes the stuff of nightmares. Who would commit such a hateful offense in broad daylight? With her husband in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems in her life, as well as the secrets that have been kept from her. Although she might not like what she sees, if she’s committed to discovering who hurt her husband―and why―Jane must take matters into her own hands.

  1. Hi, there! I am currently reading “These IsMy Words” as recommended by a bookstore owner friend. It is pretty good but parts are a little harsh. It is about a young woman on a wagon train to Arizona. It is written in diary form and covers 20 years of her life.
