I'm with Mary Ann -- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is a great read! Surprises galore, and switching from one perspective to another is quite interesting. Gives a whole new perspective to psychopath!!!

Ford writes with compassion & depth of his characters & takes us from a family life in the United States, to complete disfunction & chaosis on the run to Canada. Exceptional read!

The Affair Lee Child

I have read several reviews and have seen this picked apart, but not everyone gets a home run every time. I enjoyed the depth that he added to the intimacy. He usually does not do that. I loved it. I like the fact that it tied up a lot of loose ends that were in his other books. I thought it was great, but I am a bit biased. I wish he wrote more, but the quality is normally worth the wait.
—Guest Lynn Eley

Fifty shades of grey

I just LOVE the style of James' writing!! It is so interesting and I do mean the sexy parts...

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

The best novel I have read this year. Slow starter but you have to keep reading. Alot of surprises in this book.
