To Be Read Thursdays #28: Weekend Reads

TBR Thursdays

To Be Read Thursdays are a meme hosted by yours truly. This is a way to feature the books you’ve added to your TBR list over the past week or a newly added book that you are excited about reading in the near future. Anyone is welcome to participate in this meme. Please just link back to this page so I can read your posts.

It’s been a really, really rough week and I haven’t gotten much reading done. So I plan on knocking out a few for this weekend (hopefully). Here’s just some of what you can expect:

Nowhere Girl by Susan Strecker

Nowhere Girl“The day Savannah was killed she was fifteen minutes late to meet me.” So begins bookseller favorite Susan Strecker’s second novel of twin sisters and the murder that left one twin behind.

Savannah was the popular bad girl skipping school and moving quickly from one boyfriend to the next, so when she didn’t meet Cady as promised, Cady wasn’t surprised and the truth was Cady was already a bit mad at her. When Cady suddenly becomes short of breath she realizes Savannah is in trouble, but within minutes Savannah is gone.

Years later Cady, now a bestselling author of suspense, spends her time interviewing killers, hoping each interview will help her understand what happened to her sister. Despite Savannah’s death, the bond Savannah and Cady share has never been broken. Savannah still comes to Cady, but the clues her sister sends don’t add up until a chance encounter while researching her latest novel provides a missing piece of the puzzle.

Longreave by Daniel Barnett

LongreaveSome secrets aren’t kept.
Some secrets keep you.

It’s dark inside Longreave with no electricity. But that doesn’t bother Mark Currier. And the way the faucets keep dripping . . . that doesn’t bother him either. Even if the water has been shut off. He’s got work to do around the hotel. A man has to take care of what’s his, otherwise he doesn’t deserve it. Look at his wife, Alice. He hadn’t taken care of her, and she’d left him. Now she’s living in his house with her off-kilter brother and trying to rebuild her life, and that definitely doesn’t bother him at all. Not a bit. He has his own rebuilding to do, starting with the crumbling wall in Longreave’s cellar.

If only it wasn’t so cold down there.

If only the boiler would just keep quiet.

Mark and Alice’s marriage might be dead, but they’re about to discover some things won’t stay buried forever . . .
