The Black House by Peter May
The Black House

Margaret Hardy, January 18, 2013

Along with the next book in the series, The Lewis Man, this is one of my standout books for early 2013. It combines a evocative, wistful mood, an incredible sense of place in a relative unfamiliar area (Outer Hebrides) and complex, sympathetic characters. I'm ready right now to read the third book in the trilogy and plan to look into this author's other series.

Defending Jacob by William Landay
Defending Jacob

Margaret Hardy, January 2, 2013

Talk about can't-put-it-down. Found myself reading while walking to the train.

Makes you really think about what it means to be a parent and how far you would go to protect, defend and believe your children. What two parents do in the face of an impossible dilemma.

Defending Jacob

Talk about can't put it down. Found myself reading it as I was walking to the train.

Really makes you think about what it means to protect, defend and believing in your childres - and how different parents handle an impossibly difficult situation. A dilemma no parent would want to face.

Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante
Turn of Mind

Margaret Hardy, January 1, 2012

It's a cliche to say a book is un-put-down-able but this one truly lives up to it. Written from the viewpoint of a brilliant woman surgeon whose mind is deteriorating from Alzheimers - and is accused of murdering her best friend.

Can't wait for this author's next one.
