Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult

I was intrigued until the end.

A shocking murder of an infant shatters the calm of the Pennsylvania's Amish country and tests the heart and soul of the lawyer who steps in to defend the teenager at the center the storm.

Moving seamlessly from psychological drama to courtroom suspense, this is a fascinating portrait of Amish life.

Rock With Wings by Anne Hillerman

This is the second book in the Leaphorn and Chee Mystery Series. I like it because it's set in the southwest on the Navajo Reservation where I grew up and I am familiar with all the places and names.

Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand

A family owned inn with a mixed-up family. An ex-wife, a Santa, a missing son. And the drama continues in... Winter Stroll, which I'm now reading.

I also read What We Find by Robyn Carr. A neurosurgeon goes home to her family's campground to regroup after several devastating losses. A really good read. I've also read some of Ms. Carr's Virgin River series and quite liked them.

Ocean Beach by Wendy Wax - The ladies of Do Over, a fictional home improvement show, tackle another project. Set in Miami, the home is owned by Max Golden, a retired comedian. The home is in a sorry state of neglect. And they have limited funds for repairs. So they get creative and solve a decades old mystery in the process.

THE DOG WHO SAVED ME by Susan Wilson

This book will tug at your heart and you will shed a few tears but it is a very good story of a policeman (Cooper) who was a member of the Boston K-9 unit. He is injured in an explosion and his dog was killed and while he is recovering he moves back to his home town and becomes the animal control officer for a year.

Cooper finds himself trying to rescue a wounded and gun-shy yellow Lab who has become feral. It is a touching story of a man who is still grieving for his lost partner and a dog who has trust issues. Naturally mixed in this book is a father who was the town drunk and a brother who just got out of prison. Oh, and a love interest!

Well written and a book that is hard to put down.

A few of The Girls by Maeve Binchy

This is a collection of short stories from the late Maeve Binchy. Beautifully written, with her light touch of Irish wit and humor. Amusing, provocative and often poignant.

This is a war story set in Warsaw, Poland during WWII. It is the true story of a young couple who run the Warsaw zoo when the German's invade Poland. Over the years they were able to save over 300 people from the Nazis by hiding them in the Villa or in the empty animal cages after the German's either killed the animals or sent the animals to other zoos in Germany.

This book has been made into a movie.
