This week, I ordered and received (via Whispernet) two e-books for my Kindle.
1) The Girl in the Green Raincoat, by Laura Lippman
A bedridden detective, a mysterious dog walker in a green raincoat who suddenly disappears…drama and suspense!
2) The Year of the Flood, by Margaret Atwood
The long-awaited new novel from Margaret Atwood. The Year of the Flood is a dystopic masterpiece and a testament to her visionary power.

Here’s What’s Up Next:
1. Child of Silence, by Abigail Padgett (From my TBR Stacks)
This powerful and suspenseful debut features an unusual heroine, San Diego Juvenile Court child abuse investigator Bo Bradley.

Every character who makes an appearance in her memoir is a fully sketched human, the flaws no less visible than the positive attributes. She doesn’t shy away from portraying honest family difficulties…. Maynard writes honestly and unselfconsciously, without coming off as malicious. No, the people in her life are not perfect, but My Mother’s Daughter stands as a firm testament to the fact that they were still valued, and deservedly so.”
3. The Girl in the Green Raincoat (e-book), by Laura Lippman
In the third trimester of her pregnancy, Baltimore private investigator Tess Monaghan is under doctor’s orders to remain immobile. Bored and restless, reduced to watching the world go by outside her window, she takes small comfort in the mundane events she observes . . . like the young woman in a green raincoat who walks her dog at the same time every day. Then one day the dog is running free and its owner is nowhere to be seen….
So that’s it for my week. What are you reading, and what did you buy, receive, etc.? Hope you’ll stop by….
