Reading in the Small Town

datePosted on 18:19, February 7th, 2013 by Small Town Mommy

I have another great book to tell you about.  Last month, the Small Town Library did a Facebook chat where someone provided book recommendations to people (I think that someone was a librarian but I can’t be sure.  For all I know it was someone’s cat who can type).  I was looking for something I might enjoy and the librarian (or her cat) recommended  an author named Lisa Gardner.  While I love humor, I also love suspense.

I recently read Touch & Go by Lisa Gardner.  It’s a suspense novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  It’s about a family that is kidnapped.  The story is told from two perspectives, the detective trying to solve the case and the mother of the kidnapped family.  This two angled perspective allows you to know what’s happening with the family as well as the investigation.

I don’t want to give too much away since it is a suspense novel so let’s leave it with the surprises keep coming.

I know I asked this last week, but I am still looking for a good book recommendation.  Tell me your favorite author or your favorite book.

This review is part of a compensated campaign but all opinions expressed are my own.

    I got THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE for Christmas. Once I started, I could not put it down. I look forward to reading the other books in this trilogy by Stieg Larsson.

    The publicist said she read Doc by Mary Russell last year and it was one of her favorites (

    She couldn’t put it down. She wouldn’t even let me take a taste!

    Sad to say I haven’t been reading at all lately. But, if you come across a book actually written by a cat, I’ll read that!

    Julie Cantrell’s “Into the Free” I have it on my Kindle. I loved this book. It’s one of those that you wonder what happened to the people after you are done reading it.
