THE HORSE DANCER by JO JO MOYES

This is the third novel of JoJo Moyes that I have read. The storyline is different from the others.
It was a heartfelt, captivating read.
The story of fourteen year old Sarah is so much more than a story of a girl and her horse.
Natahsa, a young lawyer and her husband Mac become very involved in Sarah's complicated life.
With the right actors this would make a great movie.

Author Nancy Thayer

Just got done reading a book by Nancy Thayer called "Secrets in summer," and loved it. I usually don't read these kind of books since I'm more into police drama, murder mysteries and the like but I just happened to pick it up and was enthralled. It's about a woman living in a house on a beach. She inherited the house from her grand mother. Next thing she knows, the summer people are here and her next door neighbor is her ex husband!! It's funny, uplifting and I can relate to a lot of it.

Also on July 22nd, the author will be at the local library in my city to chat and sign books...so excited!!

Boar Island by Nevada Barr

I love the Anna Pigeon series. Nevada Barr really is a Park Ranger with the NPS. Her books are always set in a National Park. Murder/Mystery She uses factual information about the park and I can picture myself there with her. I've read most of Nevada Barr's books. Start with her first one...I think it was Track of the Cat and is set in Carlsbad, New Mexico.

CAMINO ISLAND by JOHN GRISHAM

Camino Island is John Grisham's latest novel. It begins when several crooks steal some valuable rare books from a vault below the

Princeton University library. The books are insured for 25 million dollars.
A book dealer in Camino Island Florida is suspected.
What follows is an interesting tale to find the books.
It was a good story but I .was hoping for more excitement.
I would like to know what you think of this novel.
