Everything We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale

A top Amazon bestseller of 2016 and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Sous chef Aimee Tierney has the perfect recipe for the perfect life: marry her childhood sweetheart, raise a family, and buy out her parents’ restaurant. But when her fiancé, James Donato, vanishes in a boating accident, her well-baked future is swept out to sea. Instead of walking down the aisle on their wedding day, Aimee is at James’s funeral—a funeral that leaves her more unsettled than at peace
Really interesting read and kept me going from beginning to end.

OLDER STORY

When my sister passed away she left me all her books--quite a collection. Of course I didn't take them all because I simply don't have room. I have too many of my own. But I did select a few that I don't own. I'm reading one of them now. Or I should say re-reading. It's called "The Fan" by Bob Randall (1977). It was also made into a movie starring Lauren Bacall and James Garner. It is perhaps one of the first novels about a stalker, told partly from his point of view. This book is still available from Amazon.com. I imagine the movie is out there somewhere too.

THE ORPHAN'S TALE by Pam Jenoff

This is a book I have been wanting to read and finally got it and I really loved the story. It is about 16 year of Noa who is pregnant by a Nazi soldier and is forced to give up her child. She is working at a small rail station and discovers a boxcar full of infants and takes one and flees. They ends up in a German circus where she meets Astrid who teaches Noa to work on the flying trapeze. It is a good story about how these two women survive in hard times.

NEVER NEVER by James patterson

This is a new character and the setting is in Australia. It is about murder at a mine in the outback far from any major towns. Detective Blue is a cop who is sent to the mine to investigate these murders and missing miners. She is not received very well by the managers of this mine. I have to say it was one of my least favorite books that Patterson has written.

THE WHISTLER by John Grisham

Another very good book by this author. This one is about Lacy Stoltz who is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. She and her partner have a case that involves a crooked judge and also a Native American casino. It is a very interesting story and keeps you guessing until the end.

The Great Pearl Heist

I just finished The Great Pearl Heist by Molly Caldwell Crosby. This was an interesting read about a famous theft in the early 1900's in London, England. It covers the beginnings of Scotland Yard, and the comprehensive cast of characters involved in the crime. A phenomenal story with great detail. It was a fascinating glimpse of another era.
