The Shore by Sara Taylor

As a reader, I am sure you often wonder what draws another reader to a particular book. Is it the cover or perhaps the synopsis? I was drawn to The Shore for a number of reasons. If I am being honest, MacLeod Andrews name listed as a narrator first piqued my interest. Do you do that? The second thing that spoke to me was the setting, as I am very familiar with the shores along the Chesapeake Bay. The Shore is a collective of stories and perspectives that both intrigued and frustrated me.

The Witch of Bourbon Street by Suzanne Palmieri

The Witch of Bourbon Street by Suzanne Palmieri offers a lush, Gothic tale wrapped in mystery, and magic. This was my first Palmieri book and her descriptive writing style is beautiful. The New Orleans setting and the series of unsolved murders drew me to this novel set in 1902. I would classify it as women’s fiction with a touch of magical realism.

Suddenly One Summer by Julie James

This was my first James’ novel and while this is a standalone, the hero Ford first appeared in one of her FBI/US Attorney novels. I must admit to being curious. Filled with banter, sexy time and wrapped in heartwarming side stories it is easy to see why Julie James is a favorite

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty narrated by Caroline Lee was an audiobook I simply devoured. Moriarty takes us into suburbia, parenting, playground politics and shares with us what happens behind the closed doors of several families homes. It was a captivating mystery leading up to a school function that had the police questioning everyone. Riveting, funny, sad, and thought-provoking Big Little Lies held me spellbound.
