    Story

    Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

    Overall

    I eagerly await each new Sandford novel because I love his characters and his ability to unravel a serious crime mystery and make you laugh while he's unraveling. I'm totally in love with the Lucas Davenport family although I'd love to read more about the baby boy. Any story that has Lucas Davenport and crew then throws in his young side-kick Virgil Flowers has to be a winner. I highly recommend this book. I can't wait for the next John Sandford "Prey" Novel. I give this one a Ten...wait, I forgot Five is the highest score. Five Stars for John Sandford's Storm Prey.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was so well written. I have never had an addiction to alcohol but after meeting Hildi and getting to know her, I have a better understanding of how terrible the illness can be. I would and will recommend this book to all of my friends.

    Story

    I loved this book. It made me smile, laugh out loud and cry my eyes out. How can you get better than that? The 3 Supremes became my friends.
    The author introduced each character slowly, reaching back to the past then leading you into the present so well that the Supremes became people you want to spend time with. Like old friends that fill your memory and sustain you through life's most difficult times. I feel blessed to have friends like these. That is why I know the deep appreciation these women had for each other.

    In this breathtaking and beautiful novel, the #1 New York Times best-selling author Anna Quindlen creates an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family, and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions.

    Kimberly says: "Almost Unbearably Sad, Completely Wonderful"
    "Every Last One"
    Overall

    This was an excellent telling of a miserably painful story. After listening to this book I had to listen to Janet Evanovich's Sizzling 16 to lift my mood. This may not sound like a good reveiw but I will probably listen to Every Last one again, it was so well written as is the Anna Qindlen style. 5 Stars!!

    Zee Finch has come a long way from a motherless childhood spent stealing boats—a talent that earned her the nickname Trouble. She’s now a respected psychotherapist working with the world-famous Dr. Liz Mattei. She’s also about to marry one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors. But the suicide of Zee’s patient Lilly Braedon throws Zee into emotional chaos and takes her back to places she thought she’d left behind.

    "The Map of True Places"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. I selected it because Brunonia Barry's Lace Reader is on my list of all time favorite books. Map of true places has found it's place on my list too. The story is intricately woven, the characters are complicated but believable. I loved that there was mention of some of Lace Reader's characters. Thank you Ms. Barry for another entertaining book.
