I liked every character in this novel. Not what I expected, which was a boilerplate romance. A lot of serious situations are addressed thru excellent storytelling. Kept wondering how it was going to end and was extremely satisfied.

Juicy! One of those books where you aren't sure who to trust or who is telling the truth... it's fun to keep speculating over what is really going on as you learn a little bit more each chapter. Not a bubbly, happy book, but the grittiness keeps it s ...more

The Woman in the Window by A.J.  Finn

A solid psychological thriller. Gets really deep at times but overall I liked the narrator. Reads like a classic film noir movie and I kept picturing Robert Mitchum as one of the main characters in a black and white movie in my head while reading the ...more

Everything and more than you'd ever want to know about Leonardo da Vinci, his artworks and his inventions. I read this to get in the mood for an upcoming trip to Milan where Leonardo lived for much of his adult life. The author does well keeping it v ...more
