ENGAGING READS…

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?

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

Such a Perfect Wife, by Kate White, is the next installment of New York Times bestselling author Kate White’s Bailey Weggins series.  True crime writer Bailey is reporting on a seemingly straightforward missing-wife story when she realizes she might be covering the work of a diabolical serial killer—and that her own life could be in peril.

 

 

Synopsis:  Must be blonde, beautiful, and a good Catholic girl…

On a sunny fall morning, Shannon Blaine sets off on a jog along the rural roads near her home in Lake George, New York. It’s her usual routine after dropping the kids off at school…except on this day she never returns. The residents in the idyllic town are stunned. Could Shannon have just taken off, overwhelmed with the pressures of being the perfect wife and mother? Did a stranger snatch her? Or is her husband responsible?

The hot new online magazine Crime Beat calls Bailey Weggins to cover the case, and it doesn’t take long for her to see that it has far more suspects than she initially realized: a bitter sister, an unfaithful brother-in-law, an evasive deacon, and a creepy local motel owner. When an anonymous caller reaches out to Bailey with the cryptic clue that Shannon was a “good Catholic girl,” it leads Bailey to the grisly discovery of the missing woman’s body—but, stunningly, other bodies are there alongside hers.  

Everything about the case suddenly shifts as Shannon’s murder appears to be the work of a serial killer with a very specific calling card. As the killer continues to drop hints her way, Bailey sets out to expose his identity before another woman perishes . . . especially if that woman is Bailey herself.

I’m really enjoying my reading week.  After a few weeks in which I slogged along, switching from one book to another, I’m liking how I now grab each book with eagerness.  What did your week look like?

    I’ve had a bit of a slow week this week but overall, November has felt like a better reading month than the last couple.

    I love the sound of Such a Perfect Wife – I have a morbid fascination with serial killers.

  2. I’m really looking forward to you finishing Hilary Clinton’s book so you can tell us all what exactly did happen for the U.S. to end up where it has! Hopefully the book does have a few suggestions, if not definitive answers.

    Glad to hear also that your enthusiasm for reading has returned. I think, if you’re a book lover, it never really goes away for long – just hides somewhere for a while 😀

    1. Thanks, Cathy, I am learning a little each time I pick up HRH’s book…but what we see around us in this strange new world is that people are drawn to what they perceive as “different” from the usual, which, sadly for them, is not necessarily a good thing.

      I’m enjoying my books. I hope you are, too.
