1. Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney
The main character, Adam, is a screenwriter and his wife, Amelia, works at a dog shelter. Adam is consumed by trying to adapt a reputable author’s books into films. Obsessed. Amelia “wins” a trip to a house in Scotland. The drive to the house is tense and when they arrive the house is creepy. They discover that the house is haunted and they’re not alone…
2. Local Woman Missing by Mary Kubica
I can hardly remember reading this book. April went by too fast and I think I was too distracted. A girl goes missing in a small town, but turns up eleven years later. The father tries to cope and accept her as his own, but her brother doesn’t think something is correct. And then a mother and daughter also go missing. The ending was considerably lack-luster, but it was an okay story.
3. How to Bang a Billionaire by Alexis Hall
This book was available to checkout immediately and I didn’t read any reviews before downloading. This book turned out to be the gay version of 50 Shades of Gray. Go at your own risk, haha! A young college student, Arden, has a job calling alumni for donations. He calls the rich Caspian to ask for a donation and to attend an alumni event. They meet at the event and have a scandalous encounter. And the story goes on from there…
4. The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley
Jess is looking for her half-brother at his Paris apartment, but he isn’t home. There are many strange characters that come in and out as she tries to find him. The apartment itself is weird and mysterious. This is definitely a page turner as we experience the mystery unfold. The ending was definitely a surprise for me and I didn’t pick up on any of the hints along the way.
5. The Guncle by Steven Rowley
This book is an absolute recommended read! I would love for this book to become a movie as soon as possible. The gay uncle is a former actor who has exited his career to live a private life in Palm Springs. His brother’s wife passes away and his brother tells him that he needs to go to rehab… and he’s leaving his children with him. The heartfelt story is where he teaches his niece and nephew how to deal with grief, but he also opens his own heart. I ugly cried at the end. It was so beautiful!
