This week, I’ve been trying to read through some of the book pile as I tackle my The Other Daughter revisions. I’ve been blessed with a couple of good friends who send me book care packages (hi, Vicki and Claudia!), so this week’s haul is mostly from them.
— Isabelle Holland, Counterpoint. Thanks to the care packages, I went on a huge Isabelle Holland kick two summers ago, when I was writing Purple Plumeria, but I somehow missed this one. Her books are 1970s set Gothics, a little Elsie Lee, a little Katherine Neville. This isn’t one of my favorites, but it did still provide a fascinating look back to the New York of forty years ago.
— Linda Howard, Kill and Tell. Confession: I’ve never read any Linda Howard before. This one involves a New Orleans cop and an Ohio nurse who are drawn together when her absentee father is murdered on Bourbon Street.
— Wendy Webb, The Vanishing. This is such a house book. Woman who needs to disappear finds refuge in a mansion in the wilds of Minnesota. But will the shades of the house’s past be too much for her?
