Started Breakdown by Jonathan Kellerman

Breakdown: An Alex Delaware Novel - Jonathan Kellerman

 

I believe I've read a few of Kellerman's books in the past but it was so long ago that I really don't remember much.  So far I'm liking Breakdown.

Finished Konwn by Kendra Elliot

Review:

Known - Kendra Elliot

 

Not bad.  Thought I read a few of Ms. Elliot's books in the past but it was a different author that was very similar in writing style.  I'll read more from Kendra Elliot.

Started Cop Town by Karin Slaughter

Cop Town - Karin Slaughter

Karin Slaughter, author of the bestselling Will Trent novels, is widely acclaimed as “one of the best crime novelists in America” (The Washington Post). Now she delivers her first stand-alone novel: an epic story of a city in the midst of seismic upheaval, a serial killer targeting cops, and a divided police force tasked with bringing a madman to justice.

 

Starting out great!

Finished High Heat by Lee Child

Review:

High Heat - Lee Child

Just realized that I've already listened to High Heat mid last year coupled with two other shorts of the Jack Reacher series. Nonetheless, it was a great listen!

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz

Review:

The Passenger - Lisa Lutz

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Spellman Files series, Lisa Lutz’s latest blistering thriller is about a woman who creates and sheds new identities as she crisscrosses the country to escape her past: you’ll want to buckle up for the ride!

In case you were wondering, I didn’t do it. I didn’t have anything to do with Frank’s death. I don’t have an alibi, so you’ll have to take my word for it...

Forty-eight hours after leaving her husband’s body at the base of the stairs, Tanya Dubois cashes in her credit cards, dyes her hair brown, demands a new name from a shadowy voice over the phone, and flees town. It’s not the first time.

She meets Blue, a female bartender who recognizes the hunted look in a fugitive’s eyes and offers her a place to stay. With dwindling choices, Tanya-now-Amelia accepts. An uneasy―and dangerous―alliance is born.

It’s almost impossible to live off the grid today, but Amelia-now-Debra and Blue have the courage, the ingenuity, and the desperation, to try. Hopscotching from city to city, Debra especially is chased by a very dark secret…can she outrun her past?

With heart-stopping escapes and devious deceptions, The Passenger is an amazing psychological thriller about defining yourself while you pursue your path to survival. One thing is certain: the ride will leave you breathless.

 

Wow, this book was so good!!

 

This is my first time reading author Lisa Lutz's writing, she had me from page one to the very end.  "The Passenger" was a well written thrill ride of deceit, intrigue, and the uncertainty of what was coming next.  Absolutely loved the ending.

 

I was provided a free copy by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

 

I highly recommend "The Passenger" by Lisa Lutz.  I will be reading more works by Lisa Lutz.

Started and Finished Long Gone by Alafair Burke

Review:

Long Gone - Alafair Burke

Echoing the intensity of Harlan Coben’s Tell No One and the psychological depth of Laura Lippman’s What the Dead Know, Alafair Burke’s first stand-alone novel catapults her into the top ranks of modern suspense. In New York City’s cut-throat world of art, appearances can be deceiving—especially when art world newcomer Alice Humphrey becomes a suspect in a gruesome murder at a Chelsea gallery, and is thrown into a treacherous labyrinth of intrigue, crime, and conspiracy. Now, Alice must discover the truth behind the murder before the unsolved mystery claims her as its next victim.

 

First time reading works from Alafair Burke.  I enjoyed this book so much and it was written (read) so well that I will most certainly be reading more by her.

Started and Finished Wedding Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke

Review:

Wedding Cake Murder (Hannah Swensen Book 19) - Joanne Fluke

Everyone in Lake Eden, Minnesota, may have had their doubts, but at long last, Hannah Swensen is getting married!

Hannah is thrilled to be marrying Ross Barton, her college crush. And her excitement only grows when she learns he’ll be able to join her on her trip to New York City for the Food Channel’s dessert chef contest. They get a taste of the Big Apple before Hannah wins the Hometown Challenge and the producers bring all the contestants to Lake Eden to tape the remainder of the show. It’s nerve-wracking enough being judged by Alain Duquesne, a celebrity chef with a nasty reputation. But it’s even more chilling to find him stabbed to death in the Lake Eden Inn’s walk-in cooler—before he’s even had a chance to taste Hannah’s Butterscotch Sugar Cookies! Now Hannah has not only lost her advantage, she’ll have to solve a mystery with more layers than a five-tiered wedding cake…

 

Great little story.  Wondering if there's a book of all of the recipes in one place?
