It is no secret that I enjoy Lisa Scottoline’s books, from the series to the suspense, and also the memoirs. On 4/14/14, (love the numbers in that date!), her newest book, Keep Quiet, is coming. (Title and Book Cover link to Amazon)
Blurb: Jake Whitmore is enjoying a rare bonding moment with his sixteen-year-old son, Kurt, when disaster strikes. They get in a terrible car accident that threatens to derail not only Kurt’s chances at college, but his entire future. Jake makes a split-second decision that saves his son from formal punishment, but plunges them both into a world of guilt, lies, and secrecy. Just when Jake thinks he has everything under control, a malevolent outsider comes forward with the power to expose Jake’s secret and taunts him to the breaking point. Keep Quiet is the powerful and gut-wrenching tale of the unraveling—and the ultimate redemption—of a family.
What are you reading, ranting, or excited about today? I’m curled up reading a book that I’m also enjoying: Two Sisters, by Mary Hogan.
An intriguing tale of a dysfunctional family, two sisters at odds with one another, and the secret that brings them together.
The tale veers between the present and the past, showing us about the parents, the family growing up, and what tore them all apart. Sometimes it skips back and forth so quickly, that I go: huh? Where are we, and who are these people? But overall, I’m enjoying it.
