Reading right now:
“Missing You” by Harlan Coben. I just started and I can’t put it down. This stand-alone novel by Coben follows NYPD Detective Kat Donovan down the rabbit hole of online dating. People are disappearing, her ex-fiance resurfaces, and new evidence comes to light regarding her father’s murder. I am loving this book and can’t wait to find out how everything is going to fit together. Coben’s website says “Missing You” is “a heart-pounding thriller about the ties we have to our past and the lies that bind us together.” I would have to agree. I can’t wait to finish, but will be sad to see this book end.
On hold right now:
“The Collector of Dying Breaths” by M. J. Rose. This is the sixth novel in Rose’s Reincarnationist series. All of the books in this series are gothic thrillers full of passion and obsession. The latest novel fluctuates between Florence, Italy, 1533, and modern day Paris, France. It centers on two lives: the first in 1533 is Rene le Florentin, who becomes Catherine de Medici’s perfumer, and in the present Jac L’Etoile is a mythologist who learns of Rene le Florentin’s work as a perfumer who wants to create an elixir that would unlock the secret of immortality. This series was the inspiration for the Fox TV series “Past Life.”
