A week ago when I drove to Greenville, Illinois and then over to Columbia, Missouri I logged in quite a few hours behind the wheel. Whenever I hit the road I always have books to listen to. On that trip I finished There’s No Place Like Here, by Cecelia Ahern. Now I know where all my missing stuff goes! This is the first book I have ready by this author and will definitely look for more.
From the publisher: Sometimes it takes losing everything to truly find yourself…
Since Sandy Shortt’s childhood classmate disappeared twenty years ago, Sandy has been obsessed with missing things. Finding what is lost becomes her single-minded goal–from the lone sock that vanishes in the washing machine to the car keys she misplaced. It’s no surprise, then, that Sandy’s life’s work becomes finding people who have vanished from their loved ones.
One minute Sandy is jogging through the park, the next, she can’t figure out where she is. The path is obscured. Nothing is familiar. A clearing up ahead reveals a camp site, and it’s there that Sandy discovers the impossible: she has inadvertently stumbled upon the place– and people–she’s been looking for all her life, a land where all the missing people go. A world away from her loved ones and the home she ran from for so long, Sandy soon resorts to her old habit again, searching. Though this time, she is desperately trying to find her way home…
I started and finished Little Bitty Lies, by Mary Kay Andrews. Always a fun read when you want something lighthearted.
From the Publisher: In a suburban Atlanta neighborhood where divorce is as rampant as kudzu, Mary Bliss McGowan has no idea that her own marriage is in trouble. Then, on one hot summer night, she finds a note from her husband, Parker, telling her he’s gone . . . and he’s taken the family fortune with him.
Stunned and humiliated, a desperate Mary Bliss has been left behind with her seventeen-year-old daughter, Erin, and a mountain of debt. So she decides to salvage what’s left of her life by telling one little bitty lie. But that teeny fib soon starts to snowball, getting bigger and bigger, until Parker turns up dead. Or does he?
Started Hell’s Corner, by David Baldacci. It’s the 5th book in the Camel Club series and I’m ready for more!
From the publisher:
John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he’s fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes.
In the shadowy worlds of politics and intelligence, there is no one you can really trust. Nothing is really what it seems to be. And Hell’s Corner truly lives up to its name. This may be Oliver Stone’s and the Camel Club’s last stand.
Hurray for audio books – I’m ready for another road trip!
