Dawn | 1309 comments Sunset Beach by Mary Kay Andrews 3/5
While reading this I couldn't understand why I wasn't liking it more...I usually like the Hilderbrand books I read. Ummm...it wasn't the Hilderbrand book that I had requested. DUH. This is what Quarantine brain looks like.

The Long Call by Ann Cleeves 5/5
My first Ann Cleeves and won't be my last!

28 Summers by Erin Hilderbrand 4/5
Ahhh...this was the book I wanted to read

Turning Angel by Greg Iles 5/5
Crossing off books on my Determination List got me to finally start this series, and I'm so glad I did

The Silent Wife by Karin Slaughter 5/5
Loved it..its bittersweet...and I don't want to give anything away.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14682 comments OMG Dawn: I needed that laugh! I’m glad you eventually found the Hildebrand book! Great month, looking forward the the new Karin Slaughter and I know you will love the Penn Cage books, they are so very good. I like Mary Kay Andrews too! MKA is the pen name for Kathy Hogan Trocheck.

LOL, dawn! thanks for the laugh. i like MKA's books- she's quite entertaining but if you were expecting 28 Summers then i can see why you were disappointed!

I'll have to check out the Two Rivers series by Cleeves. I loved the first few Shetland Island ones but didn't care for the Vera something ones.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14682 comments Bonnie: I've wondered about the Vera series. I looked once to see if i had access to the tv series Vera but can't remember if I could access Acorn to see it. Anybody ever watch it?
