The Secret of Raven Point by Jennifer Vanderbes (1940s)

TailSpin by Catherine Coulter (2000s)
I got this via the library's "blind date with a book" program. Participants were asked to give their book a chance by reading at least 50 pages. I was hooked at page 5. A suspenseful murder mystery. -- Added by CindyW on 02/23/2014

Every Secret Thing
Every Secret Thing by Susanna Kearsley (1940s)
This thriller alternates between the 1940s and present day, moving from London to Toronto to New York to Lisbon to Washington, D.C. There are several secondary characters that make the complicated plot a little difficult to follow at times and a lot of twists--some of them a bit too coincidental. Overall, though, a good read for those of us who like WWII-era historical fiction. -- Added by CindyW on 02/23/2014

Claire of the Sea Light by Edwidge Danticat (2000s)

Better Read Than Dead
Better Read Than Dead by Victoria Laurie (2000s)
Although not as humorous as the first book, the suspense in this one kept me reading long past my bedtime. A great series so far with a spunky heroine reminiscent of Stephanie Plum. -- Added by CindyW on 02/10/2014

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye
Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie (2000s)
Why did I first hear of this mystery--published in 2004--just a couple of weeks ago? I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read the next in the series. Abby Cooper is a likeable, quick-witted heroine whose snappy repartee made me chuckle. Move over, Stephanie Plum! -- Added by CindyW on 02/01/2014

Run by Jamie Freveletti (2000s)
Now that I've read the third and final installment I can better comment on this short series. The plot is good with lots of action and suspense, and the story moves quickly. These novellas would be ideal for those who need something that can be read in less than an hour each. However, for more depth and character development, I would recommend Ms. Freveletti's full-length novels. -- Added by CindyW on 01/27/2014

Risk by Jamie Freveletti (2000s)
I enjoy the Emma Caldridge series and just downloaded the three ebook novellas. I've finished the first one, which leaves you hanging, and look forward to completing the remaining two. Highly recommended for readers of action/suspense with a strong female protagonist. -- Added by CindyW on 01/27/2014

Summer of Firefly Memories
Summer of Firefly Memories by Joan Gable (2000s)
This would be a good beach read--light, but a little on the sappy side. -- Added by CindyW on 01/26/2014

Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)
Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games) by Suzanne Collins (Other)
The Hunger Games trilogy was out of my reading comfort zone, but once started, I wanted to finish the series. I thought the first 100 pages of this book dragged, but then the action and suspense picked up. -- Added by CindyW on 01/25/2014

The Invention of Wings
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd (Other)
This is a fictionalized account of the lives of Sarah and Angelina Grimke, daughters of a Charleston plantation owner, who became trailblazers in the movement to abolish slavery and, later, advocates for women's rights. The author's first novel, The Secret Life of Bees, is one of my all time favorite reads, and this didn't quite live up to that standard. However, it is a well researched and written work of historical fiction. -- Added by CindyW on 01/19/2014
