    Dear John,
    I really missed the familiar voice of David Colacci whom I've come to know and love as the personification of your books. If you're attempting to go in a different direction with your reader, please turn around NOW. This was painful.

    The president knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel. Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair.

    From the celebrated author of The Secret Life of Bees, a magnificent novel about two unforgettable American women. Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world - and it is now the newest Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection. Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her within the wealthy Grimke household. The Grimke’s daughter, Sarah, has known from an early age she is meant to do something large in the world, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women.

    Story

    This book really touched my soul with the flawless depiction of slavery in the south. I can't think of anything Sue Monk Kidd's written that I didn't love and The Invention of Wings is not an exception. I was swept into the Charlestonian era as soon as the first words were uttered and I was literally captivated throughout this poignant story of hope and hopelessness. I would highly recommend sinking into the depths of this epic novel.

    Story

    I think I've read every Robyn Carr book and, while realizing that this book would be different, I wasn't ready for such a departure from her tried and true genre. In short, I loved it. I liked the character development and the twists and turns of the storyline. I was initially a little conflicted with Jackie's "hunches" about Tom, but just decided to go with it and now I'm glad I did. Robyn, feel free to entertain/scare us with more of these stories.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    This story really is a tight narrative that twists and turns it's way into your psyche. I'm new to Gillian Flynn, and usually don't commit to an author so quickly, but I think she had me at crazy. I'll definitely return for more!

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber and award-winning novelist Eric Pete team up to deliver the first in a much-anticipated new trilogy. The Family Business features two times the heat, two times the fun, and two times the drama as the members of an unforgettable family (not to mention their lovers and hangers-on) find their way in and out of trouble. As their many fans will attest, Weber and Pete share a talent for penning juicy fiction that their audience can’t get enough of.

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    I am listening to the end of this book while I write this review because I was so excited that I couldn't wait. I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella and this book does not disappoint. Poppy and Sam are absolutely dreamy and I can't wait to hear more about them. Sophie has a flair for funny, lovable, endearing characters and these are no exception. Read it, listen to it, just get it.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    This is absolutely Stephen King at his best. I've never really liked the horror genre that King masters, but I did read his classics like Pet Cemetery, It and Bag of Bones. When I saw the reviews of this book, I was initially hesitant because I thought I knew what to expect. Boy, was I wrong! I purchased this book because I needed something to keep me entertained through the holidays, but this book went well beyond that. I was enthralled and engaged in the story to the point that I got very little else accomplished. I have now recommended this book to others and we're convinced that King has legalized literary cocaine. He's that addictive.

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    I've read many of Michael Connelly's books and enjoyed most of them. The Poet's twists and turns took me by surprise. As soon as I thought I'd figured the plot out, we were back on the rollercoaster ride. I enjoyed everything about this book! Kudos, Michael.
