I've just finished a couple of good books....
Maryz had recommended the author, Lisa Scottoline and I just finished reading her book, "Lady Killer"....Excellent, very enjoyable and for sure I'll be getting more of her books...
Another author is Mary Burton...I read, "Before She Dies" and there again, excellent reading...
Also read, "Quilter's Daughter" by Wanda E Brunstetter...Good, clean reading with an Amish setting.....
In the process of reading another Mary Burton and will let you know about it......

Almost done with "The Book of God" the bible as a novel. by Walter Wangerin Jr. Its awesome. For those who want to know all the bible stories in easy good reading pick it up. It also can be a bible study for a group there is a reading group guide in the back. I have truly enjoyed it:))

Just finished Fly Away by Kristin Hannah. It picked up where the book Firefly Lane ended. These books were about best friends and all you go through in your lifetime. The author is pretty good at hitting it right about relationships. I have read several of her novels and liked most of them. Not a big romance person, tend to like mystery, supernatural or historical type books. Love Iris Johansen and a big Stephen King fan, I have every book he has written with the exception of one or two..........the only thing I really collect.

I'm reading Women Food and God by Grennen Roth.

it's about how to recognize and resolve food addictions.. whether you're bulimic, aneroxic, or a compulsive eater.

it's really interesting.

I am looking for a book called the Red Tent by Anita Diamant. hopefully it will be my next read

I just finished reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It is the book that inspired the movie. (Which now I want to see)
It is about the life of Louie Zamperini. I found it a very good book, although some parts are very hard to read. Being in a POW camp was hell on earth.
