Nancy's Notes - September 16, 2010
Nora Roberts is one of our most popular authors. Her newest novel, “The Search”, takes place in the Pacific Northwest. The story centers around Fiona Bristow a dog trainer. Living off Seattle’s coast she seems to lead an idyllic life. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare. Several years ago she was the only survivor of a serial killer, a stalker who abducted young women, strangled them and left them buried with a red scarf on their bodies. As authorities were closing in on the killer he shot and killed Fiona’s cop finance and his K-9 partner. On Orcas Island, Fiona has found the peace and solitude she needed to rebuild her life. Yet all that changes on the day Simon Doyle barrels up her drive, desperate for her help.
If you like suspense and humor you may enjoy Susan Issac’s, “As Husband’s Go”. Susie B. Anthony Rabinowitz assumed her marriage was great. Her Park Avenue plastic surgeon was a wonderful husband and father. But when he is found in the Upper East Side apartment of a second-rate “escort” Susie is overwhelmed with questions left unanswered. It’s bad enough to know your husband’s been the victim of a crime, but it’s even worse to be pitied because of the sleaze factor. With help from her tough-talking grandma Ethel, she takes on her snooty in-laws, her husband’s partners, the NYPD and the DA as she sets out to prove that her life with Jonah was not a lie.
Gregg Hurwitz has written the suspense novel, “They’re Watching”. All Patrick Davis ever wanted to do was make movies, but after he gets his big break and sells his first screenplay, his life collapses. Davis’ Hollywood dreams crumble sending him back to his dreary day job and he finds his storybook marriage is also on the rocks. Then DVDs start being delivered to him. The DVDs show someone is watching him and his wife, that the two of them are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden around and within their house. Next e-mails start and someone offers to fix everything and make it all right. Patrick figures it’s the offer of a lifetime, but he couldn’t be more wrong.
