The White House is the home of the president of the United States, the most guarded, monitored, closely watched person in the world. So how could a US president vanish without a trace? And why would he choose to do so? An unprecedented collaboration between President Bill Clinton and the world's best-selling novelist, James Patterson, The President Is Missing is a breathtaking story from the pinnacle of power.

I was very disappointed in improbabilities in time and cliched references. I hope they do better on their next project.

In Washington, award-winning author Fergus M. Bordewich turns his eye to the backroom deal making and shifting alliances among our Founding Fathers and in so doing pulls back the curtain on the lives of the slaves who actually built the city.

Though the title leads one to expect the book to be about the designation and creation of Washington DC, it was a minor part of the book. If I wanted to read about slavery and the emancipation of slaves, I would have selected such a book.

In Truly Madly Guilty, Liane Moriarty takes on the foundations of our lives: marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship. She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we don't say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.

I was disappointed. I enjoyed all of characters and they were well developed, as was the plot -- as least at first. however, nothing really happened one you learn the little girl survived. Harry's role in the story was worthless. The other characters never realized that he died while trying to save the girl.
