How are you all this summer? While I had spent a lot of my time researching on a perfect book to read next, It took me some real good time to find the right one! But the good thing is, I now have a list of books that I thought of sharing with my fellow readers, in case you’re wondering what to read next!
Here goes my List!
- Look for me – Lisa Gardner
Lisa Gardner has always been on fave list, as I’ve read several of her crime hits. She never misses to let the mystery in her books fade till the very last page. With such a success rate, this new book of hers has had high expectations even before its release.
The book is a sequel to the detective D.D. Warren series, where she takes the help of then victim Flora Dane (abduction survivor of her previous book “FIND HER”) to help find a missing young girl, whose family is gunned down in their own home. But witnesses say she took her dogs out for a walk, minutes before the shooting. When Detective Warren steps in, she’s encountered with two questions. Is the girl a victim? or the accomplice for the multiple murders?
I can’t wait to start right off with this great book!
2. Bring me Back – B. A. Paris
A young couple Finn and Layla, are on a road trip to France to enjoy a beautiful holiday. But things are about to go wrong, when they stop for gas, and Layla goes missing. No one ever sees her again.
11 years later, Finn is engaged to Layla’s sister Ellen. Life is good. They’re happy in their beautiful Cotswold home. Until one day he gets home after work, to see Ellen holding something that belonged to her still missing sister. As more questions are raised, tension starts to build between the couple. Soon Ellen becomes suspicious of what had actually happened to her sister. There’s someone else who knows more about Layla, and the truth will come out soon.
I have seen mixed reviews about this book and the author (first time for me too!) but the plot intrigued me, and I am definitely gonna read it!
3. The Death of Mrs. Westaway – Ruth Ware
Here goes the plot of this book.
On a day that begins like any other, Hal receives a mysterious letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes very quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but also that the cold-reading skills she’s honed as a tarot card reader might help her claim the money.
Soon, Hal finds herself at the funeral of the deceased…where it dawns on her that there is something very, very wrong about this strange situation and the inheritance at the center of it.
Creepy and dark isn’t it? Ruth ware has already given hits like The Lying Game and The Woman in Cabin 10 previously, and this book has set high expectation even before its release. I myself cant wait to grab my copy ASAP!
4. The Summer Children – Dot Hutchison
This book is the recent release to its prequels “The Butterfly Garden” and “Roses of May”.
One morning Agent Mercedes Ramirez finds a scarred young boy clutching a toy to his chest on her porch. when asked, he tells her a story. A horror story. An angel killed his parents and then brought him to her, so that Mercedes would protect him.
The parents aren’t just killed, but slaughter in their own house. Brutality that hasn’t been witnessed by any agent before! As more and more children arrive at her home, telling the same horror stories. More bodies pile up, as more families die. Can Mercedes stop this brutal killer before it’s too late?
This is a very dark, and creepy book alike its prequels, so don’t tell me you’re not warned before!
5. House of Spies – Daniel Silva
This book is the 17th installment of the infamous Gabriel Allon Series. Being a fan of Silva’s books myself, I am adding this book to the last of my list since this is a very detailed spy novel, that needs your time and concentration. If you love Spy stories (James Bond Stuff!!!) you will find Silva’s book to be informative and exciting.
Gabriel is now the head of Israeli Intelligence and he cannot just sit in his office and stay out of trouble. He visits the French Secret Intelligence Service Office, when a deadly bomb detonates leaving the Art Restored/Spy in a badly injured state. However, this does not stop him going in search of the mastermind behind the operations, the SALDADIN.
Know more about the life and consequences of Secret Service agents, Intelligence officers, Safe houses, Terrorism, attacks in Silva’s books.
Hoping that my list could help my fellow readers, off I go to continue my reading process. I will meet you all in my next book review.
Happy Reading! xo!
