It's Monday (or not!), What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly link up hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I am only fashionably late, right?

Ha.  I really meant to post this on Sunday evening but then I was tired.  I meant to do it after work on Monday but I was tired.  Then Tuesday came and went and now it's Wednesday and bam! Here I am!  

Last week, I posted that I was going to read The Scent of Butterflies but that didn't happen.  I started reading it.  I just couldn't get sucked into it, no matter how hard I tried.  I just wasn't into it.  It's nothing to do with the book but it really is me.  I do this often.  I am just in the mindset to read a specific genre for some reason.  I know that when I return to it, I will inhale it.  

However, apparently, I did get sucked into two mystery/thriller books.  

Here is what I read:

Synopsis via Amazon: 
Detective Louis Kincaid cracks a murder case frozen in time in this new work of “crime fiction at its finest” (Lee Child) from bestselling author P. J. Parrish. 

Florida PI Louis Kincaid wants to wear a badge again. But before he can, he must return home to Michigan— and some unfinished business. He hopes to bond with ten-year-old Lily, the daughter he only recently learned existed, and reunite with girlfriend Joe Frye. But new clues to an unsolved murder put his plans on ice. A trip with Lily to enchanting Mackinac Island turns grim when the child falls on a pile of old bones; the dangerous discovery reopens the cold case of Julie Chapman, a teenager from one of the wealthy summer families, who vanished two decades ago. And when Louis is forced to cooperate with a tough state investigator who once worked with Joe, tensions skyrocket. Now, what was supposed to be a time of building lasting ties splinters into disturbing fragments, personally and professionally, as Louis pursues a mystery entangled in dark family secrets and twists even he can’t predict.
I loved this one.  I am a huge fan of the Louis Kincaid series and this one was great.  Louis is starting to soften up a bit.  No, he's not going soft but his defensive, cranky edge is going away a bit.  This was a fantastic addition to this series.  This series really gets better with each book.  There were enough twists and turns to keep me hooked.  If you haven't read any of the Kincaid books, you should.  Well, if you like a dark, thriller PI book.  

I actually also finished a second book.

Synopsis via Amazon: 
Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients-or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

Ok,  I liked the story.  I liked Abby Cooper.  I liked the flowing of the story.  What I did not like? Abby's spazzing over Dutch after ONE date.  That's all I didn't like but the rest? I thoroughly enjoyed and I really will read the rest of the series.  

I did start The Outlander series this week.  I think my brain still wants more mysteries because I am not at all sucked in.  I may have to get the mysteries out of my system.  Ha ha.

What did you read? What are you reading this week?


  1. Mysteries usually have that "can't put it down" quality that makes them irresistible! If you are craving mysteries, I say that you read as many as you want!

    1. Yes! You definitely have that one right! I usually have to get to a "sick of it" point before I can change genres, lol


Thank you so much for saying hello! I love your comments.
