Books I Read In April

I read quite a few good books this month but just can not say enough good things about the Alice Network!  That is one book that I know will stick with me for a long time.

1.  True Places by Sonja Yoerg-- When Suzanne's finds a sick girl in the woods and brings her the emergency room she discovers that the girl has no family and offers to take her in as a foster child; which effects Suzanne's entire family.

2.  Forgotten Hours by Katrin Schuman -- Katie's life change forever the day her father was sentenced to prison.  Now years later just as he is about to be released Katie finally decides it's time to confront her past and try to remember those hours she has long since forgotten of the summer when it all started.

3.  The Alice Network by Kate Quinn-- Charlie St Claire is looking for her lost cousin in the after math of World War II and the only name she has to go by is Eve Gardiner.  But Eve has been battling her own demons since serving in a spy agency known as the Alice Network during the first world war.  Just two key words in Claire's story prompt Eve to help and together they set off to find the truth.  A compelling story told in alternating voices and time zones.

4. I'm Fine and Neither Are you by Camille Pagan-- Penelope is a working mother of two who is a bit disgruntled with her life.  She thinks her best friend has a nearly perfect life and when it's revealed she doesn't Penelope is determined to fix her own life and her own marriage.  Her and her husband agree to write up a list of changes they want to see in each other and agree to total honesty... but is honesty ALWAYS the best policy when it comes to love and marriage?

5.  The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms-- Amy's husband abandoned her and her children years ago.  She's learned to get by without him; working to support her children and their lifestyle.  When he shows up unexpectedly and wants to take the kids for the summer Amy is reluctant but agrees and makes plans to spend time with an old friend of hers in the city.

6.  Leverage In Death by JD Robb-- Eve Dallas lands a huge case after a man walks into a corporate merger with a bomb strapped to his chest.  When she realizes he was just as much a victim as those he took out she goes on the hunt to find the real perpetrator and bring justice to all those who died.
