The Layover 320 Pages June 15, 2021 Source: EARC from NetGalley   Synopsis from Goodreads: After ten years as a flight attendant, Ava Greene is poised to hang up her wings and finally put down roots. She's got one trip left before she bids her old life farewell, and she plans to enjoy every second of it. But then she discovers that former pilot Jack Stone -- the absurdly gorgeous, ridiculously cocky man she's held a secret grudge against for years -- is on her flight. And he has the nerve to flirt with her, as if he doesn't remember the role he played in the most humiliating night of her life. Good thing she never has to see him again after they land.... But when their plane encounters mechanical problems, what should have been a quick stop at the Belize airport suddenly becomes a weekend layover. Getting stuck on a three-hour flight with her nemesis was bad enough. Being stranded with him at a luxury resort in paradise? Even with the sultry breeze and white

Hide In Place by Emilya Naymark March 1-31, 2021 Tour Synopsis: She left the NYPD in the firestorm of a high-profile case gone horribly wrong. Three years later, the ghosts of her past roar back to terrifying life. When NYPD undercover cop Laney Bird's cover is blown in a racketeering case against the Russian mob, she flees the city with her troubled son, Alfie. Now, three years later, she's found the perfect haven in Sylvan, a charming town in upstate New York. But then the unthinkable happens: her boy vanishes. Local law enforcement dismisses the thirteen-year-old as a runaway, but Laney knows better. Alfie would never abandon his special routines and the sanctuary of their home. Could he have been kidnapped–or worse? As a February snowstorm rips through the region, Laney is forced to launch her own investigation, using every trick she learned in her years undercover. As she digs deeper into the disappearance, Laney learns that Alfie and a friend had b

Review: This is How I Lied

This Is How I Lied 332 Pages  May 12, 2020 Source: Library  Synopsis from GoodReads: Everyone has a secret they’ll do anything to hide… Twenty-five years ago, the body of sixteen-year-old Eve Knox was found in the caves near her home in small-town Grotto, Iowa—discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola. There were a handful of suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without sufficient evidence, the case ultimately went cold. For decades Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that horrible night. Now a detective in Grotto, and seven months pregnant, she is thrust back into the past when a new piece of evidence surfaces and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, secrets about what really happened begin to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried deep. This is the first book I have read by Heather Gudenkauf and it won't be the last!  I loved every page of th

The Three W’s are: What did you just finish reading? What are you currently reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Recently Finished Nine Perfect Strangers was a 🌟🌟🌟🌟 and The Twins was a 🌟🌟🌟. Currently Reading   I've been reading Anxious People for a few weeks.  While I am enjoying it, I am having trouble getting into it.  I think it's more about me than the book.  I'm house-hunting and buying in my area feels like a full-time job and is taking up a lot of space in my brain.   I started listening to Caught on Audiobook yesterday and I'm intrigued to see where this story leads.  I started reading This is How I Lied last night before going to bed.   Reading before bed has always been a habit of mine.  I find it helps me relax and put the day behind me.  Sometimes I am bette
