I was gone most of April, so I did a lot of reading on my Nook. (I went on a cruise and visited Barcelona for a week.)

According to Ancestry.com, I'm 59% Scandinavian; it's no wonder I enjoy reading Norwegian and Swedish authors.  Anne Holt is my latest crush.  Her heroine is Det. Hanne Wilhelmsen.  Hanne's colleague is Håkon Sand, an attorney with the Special Branch of the Oslo police,  I highly recommend this series.  There are a few more books but they weren't in my nook!

The Pursuit of Happiness is almost 600 pages; it's a spellbinding love story that spans the McCarthy era in NYC.  Lots of twists and turns but a good read.  Kennedy is a great writer.

Here's a quote about One Kick:  “Author Cain has done it again. One Kick is superb! From its breathtaking opening sequence, through scenes of wrenching evil and heart-clutching emotion to its roller coaster finale, this novel will stay with you for a long time. And what a heroine . . . Here's hoping for more Kick Lannigan soon!” —Jeffery Deaver,

Birdman takes place in London; it's about the hunt for a serial killer.  The book is full of horror and gore but it's not gratuitous.  Not for the faint of heart.
