Murder in an Irish Village
A chef named Siobhan, who owns a little cafe at a small Irish Village, is distraught to find a dead body one morning in her own cafe. The dead man is Nile who has many enemies. However, the first suspicion is cast on Siobhan's brother who was last seen drunk on the road near the cafe. Will she ever find the real killer and dissipate all gossip and suspicions? My opinion: Terribly slow, unnecessary mix of love stories in the mystery and repetitive details when characters talk to each other.
This is a typical Nancy Thayer Nantucket beach read. It was good and quick. The book is about the friendship between Keely and Isabelle through their childhood and adult life. Their relationship is based on love but harmed by envy.
The Night Before
This thriller tests what you think you know, versus what is true. When you think you know something, you view everything through that prism. Laura Lochner returns home to her sister's home after a devastating break-up. She tries on-line dating. When she doesn't return home from the date, her family fears something has happened to her. Or has she done something to her date?
This book tells the story of several contemporary Native Americans living in Oakland and their painful journey to discover and embrace their heritage while they fight for their place in the present. I found it difficult to get into and the ending left me with feelings of frustration, hopelessness and wondering. I think this is one that may I have to reread.
This novel finds Stone Barrington in Italy for the construction of his next hotel. He attracts the attention of a Russian mobster and must protect himself and his friends while jetting around the globe. A fun beach read for fans of the series.
