    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.

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    Story

    The subject was dark and real but some how LIane Moriarty managed to add humor. Madeline was sarcastic, emotional, loyal and funny. She was the perfect good friend to women who had misery in there lives. This one kept me guessing right up to the last chapter. I expect great things when I purchase a book by Liane Moriarty and I'm never disappointed. She is a gifted story teller. More more!!

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Story

    This was a book that I didn't want to finish. I wanted it to go on and on. Liane Moriarty created characters that were unique but believable. This book was 3, maybe 4 stories that all tied together at the end. I laughed and cried over and over. The Husband's Secret ranks in my top 10 favorite books ever read.

    Award-winning author William Kent Krueger has gained an immense fan base for his Cork O’Connor series. In Ordinary Grace, Krueger looks back to 1961 to tell the story of Frank Drum, a boy on the cusp of manhood. A typical 13-year-old with a strong, loving family, Frank is devastated when a tragedy forces him to face the unthinkable - and to take on a maturity beyond his years.

    The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson, Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

    He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet. The only problem was...something smelled bad - like, really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to 15 bodies and counting.

    Story

    You can never go wrong with a John Sandford novel. I enjoy his unique style of telling who did it in the first chapter then allowing the reader to watch as the brilliant Lucas Davenport solves the crime. Virgil Flowers is also a favorite. If it's written by John Sanford it will be in my library.

    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.

    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.

    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.
