Thanks for the report - I still need to read Billy Summers, and I love Maeve Binchy, so I'll have to check out Adriana Trigiani, too.

Just finished The Lost and Found Bookshop. It was a good read. I liked the quotes peppered throughout and the book ending.

I just finished reading The Shop on Royal Street by Karen White. Good mystery that takes place in New Orleans, complete with the ghosts / spirits and psychics NO is known for.

I just started The Change by Kirstin Miller. I'm only on chapter three but am engrossed already. I've been introduced to many cheeky women (and a tween girl) who are quite entertaining.

I finished SHARP OBJECTS by Gillian Flynn (author of GONE GIRL). The story was interesting (if rather gruesome), but I didn't find any of the characters likeable, which made it a tough read.

I suggest you check out the mini-series. It was better than the book, IMO.

After reading Gone Girl, I haven’t been interested in reading any of her other books. None of the characters in it were likeable either and I absolutely hated the ending.
