It is raining!  I stayed indoors yesterday, but I was planning to go out today.  However, as I study the wet sidewalks and imagine the wet streets, I find myself curling up in a ball.  Wanting to hibernate again.

As I visited blogs and checked in over at Amazon, I noticed that many of the books I want are coming out next week.  But I did find a book that came out today, from an author I have enjoyed:

The Liar’s Room, by Simon Lelic, is my kind of read.

Synopsis:  A new spine-tingling thriller from the author of The New Neighbors that takes place over the course of a therapy session, in which neither patient nor therapist are who they claim to be.

Two liars. One room. No way out.

Susanna Fenton has a secret. Fourteen years ago she left her identity behind, reinventing herself as a therapist and starting a new life. It was the only way to keep her daughter safe.

But when a young man, Adam Geraghty, walks into her office, claiming he needs Susanna’s help but asking unsettling questions, she begins to fear that her secret has been discovered.

Who is Adam, really? What does he intend to do to Susanna?

And what has he done to her daughter?


Sounds like a good one to me.  Has anyone read it?


Yesterday I started reading By the Book, by Julie Sonneborn.

An English professor struggling for tenure discovers that her ex-fiancé has just become the president of her college—and her new boss—in this whip-smart modern retelling of Jane Austen’s classic Persuasion.



What are you reading and/or anticipating?  Are your days keeping you indoors, or searching for adventures outdoors?



  1. Ooh–The Liar’s Room! Does that ever sound compelling–and the other book as well. You’re my go-to advisor for this type of thriller. And By the Book sounds fabulous. I’m so intrigued… Thank you.
