Book 31: Before I say goodbye - Mary Higgings Clark

Genre: Suspense/Murder Mystery
Plot: After Adam dies in an explosion on board his yacht, his loving wife wants answers. As she digs further into the matter it seems that what killed Adam just might kill her too.

Book 32: The Second Time Around - Mary Higgings Clark

Genre: Thriller/Suspense

Plot: When the scientist who discovered the wonder-drug that is going to cure cancer's plane crashes questions must be asked. And the enevitable conclusions are leapt to when it is discovered that money is missing from the company behind it and the results from testing were not good. But what is truth and what is not? The step-sister of the scientist's wife investigates and it becomes the proverbial rabbit hole...

My thoughts: One of Higgings Clark's better murder mysteries. I enjoyed the twisting and turning and wondering if Nick was honest or a charleton.

Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)

Book 33: Summer Knight - Jim Butcher

Genre: Fantasy

Plot: When the Summer Queen of the fairies (Titania)'s earthly knight is found murdered, the fairies automatically think of Queen Mab as being the culprit. The thing is, she swears she's innocent. And, when you want something that's just a bit strange investigated, you should definitely call Harry. Harry Dresden.

My thoughts: I love Jim Butcher's style and the way the bigger plot is unfolding.

Rating: 4.5 stars (out of 5) - it's light and fluffy.
