Just a little break....back in a couple of weeks...


Hey everyone!  Hope all is well with my reader friends.  I haven't disappeared, but have been busy with some things.  And I've been walking and yoga-ing and admiring the wildflowers and planning a bit for what we might do in our back yard area.  Oh, yes - I've been reading - ha!  I have some flower pictures to share with you soon and will report on my books and book group attendance, etc.  See you in early May!

Waiting on Wednesday - Think Twice


'Waiting on Wednesday' is an event where I feature an upcoming book that I am extra excited about.  I used to do this in the past and am making it a priority to do again.  Seriously, who among us doesn't have a book or two or twenty that we are excited about reading?  Plus, it lets us 'spread the word' about authors and series that we personally enjoy. 

The book I'm featuring this week is another series book that has been a long time in coming.  It's kind of interesting that several books that are grabbing my attention are ones where authors are adding to mystery series after a long gap.  I have truly missed a bunch of the characters that populate these featured books.  You're probably thinking - well, Kay, what's the book?  Ha!  OK, I'll tell you.  It's the 12th book in Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series and it's called Think Twice.  The last Myron book was written by Coben in 2016.  So, an eight-year gap.  Whew!  Myron is a sports agent that also is a retired pro basketball player.  And he tends to get into the middle of murder situations.  I have read most of this series and am delighted to see Myron and his friend, Win, sleuthing again.  By the way, the first book in the series was Deal Breaker and it came out in 1995.  

Think Twice

by Harlan Coben

Publication Date:  May 14th

A man presumed dead is suddenly wanted for murder in this thriller of secrets, lies, and dangerous conspiracies that threaten to cover up the truth.

 Three years ago, sports agent Myron Bolitar gave a eulogy at the funeral of his client, renowned basketball coach Greg Downing. Myron and Greg had history: initially as deeply personal rivals, and later as unexpected business associates. Myron made peace and moved on – until now, when twofederal agents walked into his office, demanding to know where Greg Downing is.

According to the agents, Greg is still alive—and has been placed at the scene of a double homicide, making him their main suspect. Shocked, Myron needs answers.

Myron and Win, longtime friends and colleagues, set out to find the truth, but the more they discover about Greg, the more dangerous their world becomes. Secrets, lies, and a murderous conspiracy that stretches back into the past churn at the heart of Harlan Coben's blistering new novel.
