September was a great month for reading, not a stinker in the bunch!

Someone Knows is a thriller and an emotional rollercoaster.  It's about family, marriage, justice, and the emotional wounds that just won't heal. It's a stunner and I loved it.

The World That We Knew is a wonderful read about the courage of 3 women during WWII. Read it and you'll never forget it.

The Terminal List is an explosive, riveting; it has vivid characters and a relentless pace. My head is spinning and I loved this debut thriller. It has lots of bad guys and a few good ones. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

A Good Neighborhood is not my normal read, but I enjoyed it for the wonderfully drawn characters and sense of place. It's compelling, heartbreaking and the conclusion seems inevitable. I think this would be a great book club read,

Great series, and great writing. Out of Bounds is a police procedural, it moves fast and covers lots of intricate ground. Scottish law is very different. Out of Bounds encompasses mystery after mystery, all interconnected, of course

Travel Light is a moving tribute to her father and a memoir of growing up in Africa. This is a great read and the only memoir this month

Dominicana is another great debut novel, it's a story of how the American dream works. This would also be a wonderful book club read, I'd love to sit in on the discussion!

After reading The World That We Knew, earlier this month, I wanted to read more by Hoffman. The Rules of Magic is another great read and I'll be looking for more of her work.

Such A Fun Age is another debut novel. It's a big-hearted story about race and privilege. It was a good read.  I love being able to recommend debut novels.
