1st to Die
Little, Brown and Company, 2001
Whose the first to die?
Fast moving, action packed yet very in tune with human emotions. James Patterson has done it again. You never know what's going to happen next. The story is about a honeymoon serial killer and what makes him tick. It is also about the friendship of four professional women who form a murder club to help solve these crimes. These ladies, one of which is the detective in charge, also have to deal ...
The Island: A Novel
Reagan Arthur Books
WOW .....couldn't put it down!
I definately love ALL of Elin Hilderbrand books. Once I read one of them I quickly found more and didn't stop until I read them ALL. I loved this book so much because of the style in which it was written. It is so engrossing from the start that you will be obsessive about finishing it. I only wish I had slowed down because now I have to wait for her next book!
St. Martin's Press, 2010
I have never been much of a reader. I have seen Emily Giffin's books at the bookstore many times, picked them up thinking they may be something I'd like but always refusing to buy them because many times in the past I have purchased books and they just collect dust on the shelf. I went to the library and checked out "Something Borrowed" earlier this week. I finished the book in 4 days!! I ...

Loved this book!
I have read all the Sisterhood books and had fun reading this newest one also. I feel that the characters are my neighbors and love all the excitement in their lives. I recommend this book to all who keep up with the Sisterhood.

Deed To Death
33 reviews, 2010
I usually don't write many reviews, but this Author deserves a thank you for the amazing story. This book is truly a page turner and I couldn't wait to see how it all unfolded. I'm looking forwarding to reading more from D.B. Henson. One of my favorite books of the year.
Savor the Moment (The Bride Quartet, Book 3)
loved this book just as much as the first two
This is the 3rd book in this 4 part series from Nora Roberts and I loved this book just as much as the first two. In this book you follow Laurel the baker at Vows and her journey through life and love. It is not action packed or a mystery, etc but just a great story with relatable characters that you fall in love with. I would recommend this book to people who like romance stories with strong ...
Best Friends Forever: A Novel
Another good book by Weiner
Despite reading the negative reviews before buying this book, I purchased it. I've really loved all of Weiner's books and I was excited to read this one. I really liked it and would recommend it to other Jennifer Weiner fans.
Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet)
Dreams are realized in the eagerly-awaited fourth novel in Nora Roberts's Bride Quartet. As the public face of Vows wedding planning company, Parker Brown has an uncanny knack for fulfilling every bride's vision. She just can't see where her own life is headed. Mechanic Malcomb Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker is no exception. Both know that moving from minor flirtation to major hook-up is a serious step. Parker's ...
The 8th Confession
Little, Brown and Company, 2009
The 8th confession
The book is a typical James Patterson thriller. I can't say enought about his books. They keep you turning the pages to see what is next. I recommend this book.
Little, Brown and Company, 2002
Hooray for The Women's Murder Club
Another riveting,mindbending thriller from the women's murder club,by way of Mr. Patterson. An unusually calculated serial killer is on the loose and he's clever. His targets seem to have nothing in common, but the heroine, Detective Lt.Boxer, thinks differently. The F.B.I. becomes involved but they're on the wrong track. You'll never guess whodunit until maybe the very end. Mr. Patterson's ...
The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir
A very enjoyable read
Relationships are much the same, whether same sex or opposite sex. This book certainly makes that clear. You have to work on any relationship, especially during times of stress when jobs are lost and investments become worth much less. Changing from a city lifestyle to a rural lifestyle at the same time is almost certainly a stress on any relationship. Humor is one mechanism that can combat ...
St. Martin's Press, 2008
Firefly Lane: Not a beach read!
While taking a writing class in college a professor once told me, "No plot is completely original." Well, that's certainly the case when it comes to Hannah's Firefly Lane. Ever seen the movie Beaches? Then you know the story of Katie and Tully, two kids who form a lifelong friendship. Growing up, Katie has the ideal family and stability, whereas Tully's life is tumultuous due to a druggie ...
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
A Passionate Cry for Free Speech and Women's Equality
Many memoirs are published every year by people who are famous and powerful and who can drop many names of other famous and powerful people; these books often wind up on the remainder bin of history. This memoir is different. It is written with passion and clarity by a relatively young woman who began life far from the centers of power in the industrialized world. The events of her life touch ...
Vision In White
cannot help but fall in love with
This is the first book in a four part series about the women of Vows (a wedding business). Each book is about one of the women and the men they fall in love with. This is very much typical Nora Roberts. It is not a nail biting mystery, or action packed suspense, it is just a great story with very relatable characters that you cannot help but fall in love with. This first book follows Mac the ...
Little, Brown and Company, 2004
My favorite of the series!
I'm reading the entire series and to date, 3rd Degree was the most shocking and also my favorite of the series to this point. I was sad when it ended and within hours had my nose in 4th of July to continue the story. This is for the series of books as a whole, I'm so very glad I picked up that first book. They are all good and there has been no disappointment.
The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel
Great old-fashioned good story.
I hadn't read a good old-fashioned"just plain good story" in a long time. I really enjoyed the story. The writing is awesome too. I would, and did, recommend it to our book club.
Zebra Books, 2010
haven't read it yet just got it yesterday but i got to for 15 and if you go anywhere else you'll pay 20 for just one amazon is the best :)
Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom (Revised Edition): Creating Physical and Emotional Health and Healing
Christiane Northrup M.D.
IF YOU BUY ONLY ONE BOOK THIS YEAR, BUY THIS ONE.
If I had Dr. Northrup as my physician I would have been healthy in mind, body and soul a long time ago. I believe she has probably forgotten more than most, so called, "doctors" know. Dr. Northrup educates, in depth and incredible scope, her knowledge of healing which is not limited to Western medicine. I currently have, from a teaching hospital/facility, mind you, an internist, cardiologist, ...
The Female Brain
I enjoyed this book and its companion, The Male Brain. Dr. Brizendine presents a highly referenced study on the differences between the sexes. She explains the material well and uses case studies to support her conclusions. Somehow I'm having trouble convincing the three females in my family that this is a very interesting and informative read. Curious. And probably consistent with a woman's ...
