Crunch Time: A Novel of Suspense by Diane Mott Davidson
Crunch Time: A Novel of Suspense

Marjorie Fuller, September 2, 2013

Goldy's at it again! When her friend Yolanda needs a place to stay and a crime solved, Goldy offers her house, along with her expert investigative services, in spite of husband Tom's watchful eye. I would have enjoyed more cooking and less detective work. Goldy's stepping on the police investigation stretches the limits at times. Other than Tom and the ever faithful Sgt. Boyd, favorite characters such as Arch and Marla are barely mentioned. Still, the plot is engaging and the excitement is non-stop. Fans will enjoy the plot twist in the Schulz marriage as well.

Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
Flight Behavior

Marjorie Fuller, January 1, 2013

Barbara Kingsolver creates such wonderfully developed and fascinating characters in this socially conscious novel about a small town in the Tennessee Appalachians. Dellarobia Turnbow's life as mother and wife is not what she planned for herself. When the monarch butterflies arrive on her property, she grabs onto the miracle and follows where it leads.

The Meryl Streep Movie Club by Mia March
The Meryl Streep Movie Club

Marjorie Fuller, August 18, 2012

I really liked the characters in this book. Not really a new plot line--three women tied together by a tragedy in their youth--the way they learn to like each other after many years and different lives is heartwarming. Believe it or not, the weakest part of the story is the attempt to tie in the various Meryl Streep movies. It is frequently a stretch and almost forced at times. Each of the women learns to both stand on her own and lean on the others, with the charming backdrop of a bed and breakfast in a small Maine town, providing a refreshing look at female relationships and the factors that form and ruin them.

The Expats by Chris Pavone
The Expats

Marjorie Fuller, May 9, 2012

The Expats didn't quite live up to all the hype considering the publicity during pre-release and comments on the dust jacket, but overall it is a fast and exciting read. The mysterious life of spies galavanting through glamorous European cities is irresistible and hard to put down. Beware that the author overuses the flashback and flashforward, so if you do put the book down it can be hard to remember where you are in time when you pick it back up again. The plot is predictable shortly into the book, but even if you can guess what will happen it is fun to see how the author takes you to that point. I am looking forward to more from Chris Pavone, hopefully more Expats adventures.
