It's going to be a rainy few days here in the nation's capitol. Since there's no chance I'll be laying by the pool or on the terrace with one of my 'beach reads', I'm heading to the book store for a thriller or two!
"The Death of Mrs. Westaway"
Ruth Ware is quite possibly the next Agatha Christie. Her books are atmospheric and twisting. Her latest one is no different. Our leading lady, Hal, finds a mysterious letter stating she's inheriting a substantial fortune. However, she soon learns that she letter was sent to the wrong person.
She starts to think that she can lie her way into claiming the money.. until she shows up at the funeral of the deceased. It's then that she realizes that something is off. What really happened to Mrs. Westaway?
"Something in the Water"
Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave?
That's the opening line to this elegantly chilling debut novel.
A young couple, passionately in love, head to Bora Bora for their honeymoon. While they're scuba diving they find something in the water...
Do they speak out or keep their secret?
Their decision will trigger a series of devastating events.
"Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil"
Have you ever wanted to read about something so fascinating, rich, and hauntingly true?
Reading this book was a long time coming for me. After visiting Savannah a few times, I had to read "the book". Extremely well-written, bringing the city, it's people, as eclectic as they are, as well as the subject of the crime and trial, which I knew nothing of prior to picking up this book, vividly to life.
It has voodoo, Savannah aristocrats, and The Lady Chablis. All the makings for a spellbinding read!
