Nancy's Notes - May 13, 2010

"Lucid Intervals" by Stuart Woods, "The Wild Zone" by Joy Fielding, "The Aloha Quilt" by Jennifer Chiaverini.
Stone Barrington is back in Stuart Woods', "Lucid Intervals". It seems like just another night as he and former cop partner, Dino, share a drink at a local bar. When Herbie Fisher walks in looking for a lawyer, Stone tries to fend off his former client. Instead, he sets his sights on another potential client, one who is quite beautiful. She's looking for somebody whom somebody else wants dead. She takes Stone into her life of privilege where society meets government. When trouble follows him from Manhattan to his summer home, Stone has to decide what to do with the information he's uncovered. 

Joy Fielding's, "The Wild Zone", is the story of a casual bet gone terrifyingly awry. Brothers Will and Jeff, and their friend Tom are sitting at a South Beach bar. As a joke they place bets on who can be the first to seduce a mysterious-looking woman at the bar. She has an innocent, girl-next-door way about her. Little do they know the secrets she hides form the outside world. 

Jennifer Chiaverini is back with the next novel in her "Elm Creek Quilts" series. Her newest is entitled, "The Aloha Quilt". As another season of Elm Creek Quilt Camp has come to a close, Bonnie Markham faces a lonely winter, with her quilt shop out of business and her divorce looming. Escape comes when Claire, her college friend unexpectedly invites her to Maui to help launch a new business: a quilter's retreat set at a bed and breakfast. Soon Bonnie finds herself looking out on sparkling waters and banyan trees, learning the history or Hawaiian quilting and helping her friend run the inn. As Bonnie's adventure unfolds, her soon-to-be ex-husband decides he wants her stake in Elm Creek Quilts, which threatens her financial well-being and her friendships.
