I just finished reading Simple Genius by David Baldacci. The novel can be a little confusing at times, considering it’s actually an adult book and we’re not all quantum physics geniuses. But other than that Baldacci lives up to his name. Michelle Maxwell has become a little suicidal. After her last case she doesn’t  know who she can trust (other than Sean) and doesn’t believe she can trust her judgement anymore. After trying to get herself killed in a bar, she is placed in a facility for people struggling from a range of things. Her psychologist, Horatio Barnes, was hired by King to help her overcome her demons. So while Maxwell is in a facility for crazy people King is trying to solve a murder/suicide? case at legendary Babbage Town. But after a second murder and getting shot at from the CIA department across the river, King realizes this isn’t going to be some easy case. And what’s he going to do when his partner shows up, not completely cured?
An amazing novel, I seriously devoured most of it in one sitting. Baldacci’s writing should almost be mandatory for everyone to read, it’s so well written. Simple Genius is a thrilling, twisted novel like all the ones before it.

I thrilling sequel to Split Second, Hour Game by David Baldacci continues the adventures of ex-Secret Service agents now gone private investigators, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. Fast paced and extremely well written, it explains the mystery of the Battle family. A serial killer is on the loose, but is killing a number of different kinds of people; there doesn’t seem to be a pattern to the killings. One day the famous Mr. Bobby Battle is killed in his hospital bed, but doesn’t stick to the pattern of the previous killings. More murders transpire, but there seems to be more than one killer now…
King and Maxwell need to solve this crazy mystery before it’s too late. But they soon learn some stunning things, and realize they can trust no one but each other.
An amazing mystery, I couldn’t put the novel down! I wasn’t really into crime mystery until I started reading Dan Brown and David Baldacci. Now it’s one of my favorite things to read. Baldacci’s books (at least the stories with King and Maxwell) are a must read; he’s one of the best storytellers of our time.

I just finished The Reluctant Heiress by Eva Ibbotson. This is a well written, spell-binding historical fiction and romance novel. The prologue and first couple chapters are kind of slow, but once you get past the history lesson you just totally devour the rest of the book. Tessa loves music, ever since she was young and heard it during her classes, it’s been her whole world. So she left her home in Pfaffenstein, where she was an princess with a castle and had basically no money, to work in an opera house as she fulfilled her love of the arts. No one in the Viennese opera house needs to know she their under wardrobe mistress is actually a princess. But all that changes when handsome, self made millionaire Guy Farne arrives, searching for an opera to play at his castle. There is an obvious attractive between Tessa and Guy, and Tessa soon realizes there is more to life than music. But with Guy’s vain fiancee in the way, Tessa starts to wonder if there will ever be a happy ending for her.
This is a must read! This novel is only second best in Ibbotson’s novels beneath A Countess Below Stairs. A story about European history, miraculous music, and love, I would highly recommend this novel to every girl who enjoys reading romance.

Comfort Snowberger’s family doesn’t run the most usual business, they run a funeral home! Each Little Bird That Sings is a bitter sweet book about a 10-year-old girl who is dealing with the death of her Great Uncle Edisto and Great-Great Aunt Florentine, an annoy cousin Peach, a best friend that isn’t acting like a best friend should and adventures with her dog Dismay!
I absolutely love this book! It can be pretty sad but it all evens out with love and laughter! This book is a must read!

A Lady of Hidden Intent by Tracie Peterson was an incredible book! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good read! Catherine’s world takes many unexpected turns and twists. This may seem like an ordinary kind of book but it is NOT! I loved it and rarely could put it down! Oh and it’s an historical fiction book. That doesn’t mean it’s boring, just that it is set in the 1850’s which actually makes it more interesting than reading about the 2000’s because we all know how life is now. Read it!
