The Complaints by Ian Rankin
The Complaints

JohnLee, January 3, 2013

This book give the perspective of the hunter being hunted and when you turn the tables on those that investigate how they use their skills to assist in finding the truth. The truth turns out to be buried very deep and when he finds it even Foxy is shocked by how this all got started.

Ian Rankin loves a good mystery and the reason I know that he in the flawless way he writes it. You never know who is doing what or what door leads to the clue until the moment he wants you to.

All She Ever Wanted by Rosalind Noonan
All She Ever Wanted

JohnLee, January 3, 2013

I highly recommend this book. I highly recommend this author. At the end of the book, there is a Q & A with the author who after her first baby, felt much the same as most new mother's do. Also, the author mentions that although this is a work of fiction, abduction and murders made her more aware of these types of cases reported in the media. She also goes on to mention two high profile celebrities who at one point 'came out' with their stories; Marie Osmond and of course, Brooke Shields. I'm sure, like me, you all read those stories, too. Without a shadow of a doubt, I know I'll be reading more of Rosalind Noonan's work.

The Last Summer by Judith Kinghorn

Absolutely beautiful book.
Romantic, tragic, extremely compelling. It's wonderfully written: the descriptions are so rich, it was just as though I was seeing a film at times. It's hard to stop reading and it will stay with me long after I've finished it.

I read the audiobook version and I was completely blown away by Jane Wymark's incredible narration. She did a fantastic job, I believed the narration 100 per cent.
By far, the best audiobook I ever heard.

Seven Locks by Christine Wade
Seven Locks

I really enjoyed the setting of the book. Most of it takes place in upstate New York in the late 1700s, which was a very interesting time for anyone in America of course. Judith's family is Dutch and it was interesting to see how Judith's mother still clings to the Dutch way of life while Judith says several times how excited she is to be an American Daughter. Historical fiction fans will definitely enjoy that aspect.
