Book recommendation

pam_25fAugust 14, 2012

I recently read War Brides by Helen Ryan and enjoyed it. Historical fiction. The book starts in contemporary times with an older woman leading a group of tourists to England. She and 3 other women who haven't seen each other since WWII are meeting up in the village where they met during the war. Circumstances brought these 4 very different women together and they are returning to address some unfinished business.

I see this is $1.99 for Kindle at Amazon.com... free if you are a Prime member. Thanks for the review Pam!

The Witness by Nora Roberts. I keeps you on the end of your seat from the beginning to the end.

I'm reading Gone Girl, and it's the best book I've read in many years. Also What Alice Forgot is another winner. Two great books back to back. GG is number 1 on NYTimes list.

Lily316... I just reserved Gone Girl at my library, I am number 359 on the list, haha, so maybe next year! What Alice Forgot is available, though and I will pick that one up today.
Eileen.... I cannot find The Witness in my library's records online, I will have to go to Barnes and Noble I guess.

Thanks for all the recs!

Jenna..I recommended Gone Girl to my librarian and when she put it on the list, she was 299. I went to the authors website and told her how much I liked her book and recommended it to so many and received a nice thank you from her. I reserved her other two books as well.

I read Defending Jacob. It was good, husband didn't like it though.

I'm now reading Before I go to Sleep..S J Watson. Another amnesia book but am liking it so far.

lily316: I did the same thing. Ordered Flynn's two previous books after reading Gone Girl. She did win awards in the mystery genre for both. I have finished Dark Places, which is quite good. Looking forward to Sharp Objects in my TBR pile now.

Enjoy your books.

Lily, I just read Before I Go To Sleep and enjoyed it. Amazing story isn't it. I know it is fiction, but loosely based on the lives of 2 real people.

Also recently read Julie and Romeo by Jeanne Ray - easy fun summer romance for seniors :)

I read Before I Go To Sleep. I thought it was okay. It got a little repetitive for me, and I didn't think the writing was all that good, but I thought it was a good summer vacation type of book. It sure was a nail biter and I had fun trying to figure out what was really going on throughout the book. I can't remember a book that ever got my heart pumping like the end of that one did!

Jenn..I'm only 1/4 way thru the book ,and it's good but not nearly as good as Gone Girl. I should be the author's publicist. I've gotten so many people reading it...lol. Daughter just downloaded it to her Nook.

Jenna, The Witness is a fairly new book. However, our library has had it for about a month now. Tomorrow I pick up Gone Girl from the library..it's taken a while to be able to get it. I read Defending Jacob, also, and I truly liked it.
Right now I'm reading Black Hill by Nora Roberts. Almost done and it's quite good...kind of a romance that turns into a big mystery.

Not My Kid by Mary Billiter is REALLY good. I'm having trouble putting it down and I'm almost through it.
