Time for another Top 10 already! Looking back, it seems like I mostly read mystery and thrillers this year. Hope you enjoy some of the ones on my list!
I haven’t quite finished this one yet, but I can tell it will be a favorite. A young girl attends Harvard, hoping to get closure about the death of her brother who committed suicide there last year.
The second book in the Crimson Lake series which follows the paths of two outcasts and alleged criminals who pursue redemption by helping others solve crimes.
Another second book in a series which rivals the first one. Magic returns to the land of Orisha after being brutally banned for decades, but is it really a victory when you take your country to the edge of civil war?
Deep down, how well can any father really know how his teenage son feels, what he’s up to, and how far he will go if pushed?
Ghosts, mystery, romance, missing persons- what more could you want in a book?
I really enjoyed this story about a young lawyer in a lonely marriage who agrees to help a friend get out of prison, only to find his case affects her more than she could ever imagine.
A deadly wedding ceremony on an isolated island in the middle of a terrible storm. What could possibly happen?
One of my favorite Gamache books so far with lovely twist- the whole thing is set in Paris.
Another great mystery that makes you want to go to Ireland immediately and see the lush countryside and the meet all the quirky people who live in the village.
I just finished this one- it was a page turner full of twists and turns, marriages, families, good-and of course, evil.
