Hello, dear friends.  I hope that you are having a good weekend.  I have spent most of mine in bed with a miserable cold. It's not so bad because it is a horrible icky day - cold and rainy.
I need to get better in a hurry because I have a fun week ahead.

I found myself holding my breath while listening to this entire book.
This thriller moves at a rapid pace.
  Warning:  there are some gory scenes.

I enjoyed this story about a privileged family that adopts a girl brought up in the wilderness.

I listened to this book.  The narration added a lot to the creep factor of the twisted tale. 

This is the story of a Jewish woman who is hired by a wealthy couple to tutor a precocious teen with polio.  
I adored this book.


They were the perfect Hollywood couple.  
Then why did she shoot him five times? 

No one knows because she went silent after the murder. 
My fellow bookstagrammers loved this book.  I thought it was very good but felt that it was 50 pages too long.


One of my favorite authors did it again.  
She would have gotten 5 stars, but I wasn't crazy about the ending.
This thriller moves quickly, and I couldn't put it down.

I am hosting our April book club.  I have spent a couple of months searching for my pick.  The following two books are contenders.


I am listening to this wonderful story about three friends that have signed up to be Red Cross volunteers.  


I'm really enjoying this story about two women lighthouse keepers.  It's a fictional account based on their true stories.

A woman finds an abandoned suitcase full of photos in Grand Central Station.  I loved The Orphan's Tale, and I hope that this one is just as good.

After Nina's father dies, she begins to question every man in her life.

Daphne throws her Mother's yearbook in the recycle bin.  A nosy neighbor who also happens to be a documentary filmmaker takes it and starts doing some research.

Two brothers work together in the Australian outback to find out the root of their brother's death.

A woman is dealing with the loss of a baby and the mounting bills of infertility treatments.  

A poet is asked where her inspiration was derived in writing her latest work.  She shares her family's story of betrayal.

An English journalist and a Russian bomber pilot join forces to hunt down a Nazi spy who is living underground in America.

A pregnant teenager jumps off a bridge and ends up brain dead.  Her Mother steps in to find out what really happened.

A Vogue model turns into a world-renowned photographer.
I'll be able to relate to the Vogue model character.  

I've watched the first two episodes of RHBH.  I think that Denise Richards is a welcome addition.  I am also happy that Vanderpump is making an exit.

If you haven't seen the 2010 version of Upstairs Downstairs, you must.  One of my favorite actresses, Keeley Hawes, steals the show. 

I've spent a lot of time watching The Grand while nursing my cold.  If you relish a British drama, you will really enjoy this one.

All I can say is that I hope that Glenn Close wins the Oscar for this one.

Speaking of the Oscars, I told the Mister to cancel our private jet for tonight.  I don't want to spread my germs while air kissing all of my famous star friends.

Until next time...

Is Chili cheating on me?
