Reading right now:

            “Someone is Watching” by Joy Fielding. Fielding has written at least 25 books and so many of her thrillers are all about women in jeopardy. While working on a case, PI Bailey Carpenter is attacked, raped, and nearly killed. After she returns home from the hospital, she is unable to cope with anything and finds herself staying at home and looking out the window. One day she notices that someone is looking back and starts to wonder if he was her assailant. Turning to the only person who supports her (her niece Jade), the two hatch a plot to find out the truth.
On hold right now:

            I am waiting anxiously for several books coming out soon from some of my favorite authors: “Memory Man” which is the beginning of a new series by David Baldacci, the 25th book in the Lucas Davenport series by John Sandford comes out soon (“Gathering Prey”), “The Forgotten Room” which is the fourth book in the Dr. Jeremy Logan series by Lincoln Child, and finally a debut novel by Rocco Schiavone called “Black Run.” I cannot wait.
