Louisa Clark’s ordinary life changes when she takes a job caring for wheelchair bound Will Traynor. Jojo Moyes spins a story so romantic and filled with emotion, yet it’s not your typical romance novel . The love kind of creeps up on you, and than all of sudden spins you in a different direction. The insight this book gives, from Will’s perspective, made me think quite often of what we take for granted. I fell in love with characters and story, and can see why the author is publishing a sequel due out in September ( readers demanded it!). Let’s hope in 2016 the big screen doesn’t disappoint!
Irish immigrant Niamh Power’s journey on an “orphan train” and through successive foster homes in 1929 is intertwined with Molly Ayer’s, a modern day “juvie.” Their paths cross when Molly has to perform community service by cleaning out Niamh’s (now Vivian) attic. Though separated by nearly 80 years, they soon come to realize they have more in common than they could have expected. Heartwarming and heartbreaking from beginning to end.
A 14 year old girl runs away leaving a note on the fridge stating: “Don’t try to find me“. Did she really leave at her own will? Is this a game? When did the suspect become her mother? Oh yeah, the moment Rachel lied about something, but surely that had nothing to do with Marley disappearing? Secrets,lies, and surprises….
Crime fiction fans will have to read this one! Written by Denmark’s “Queen of Crime”, Sara Blaedel takes you on a suspenseful, page turning read. Louise Rick is the new director of the Danish Missing Persons Department, and it’s been four days since the body was found in the forest. Now it turns out the missing person is identified as a former inmate of a mental institution. The problem: a death certificate was issued for her over thirty years ago…… and the victim has a twin who apparently died at the same time! As she uncovers the case, it gets creepier and chilling as Louise is forced to face her own past.

Jenny only started learning the realities of her family after Naomi disappeared. Now, a year later, she is still searching… and what she finds is even more disturbing as she realizes her daughter had many, many secrets.
