10th Anniversary by James Patterson

Another good Women's Murder Club book. I swear they haven't let me down yet. 3 different plots going at the same time with varying intensities and all wrapped up nicely at the end. Very easy read. Definite recommend.

I know this is a short review but these books are hard for me to review properly since there are so many stories going at once.

The Island by Elin Hilderbrand

Not a bad book but nothing exciting ever happens. I like a little more action but I'm slowly learning not to expect it from Elin Hilderbrand and that's not necessarily a bad thing. In my opinion, she's in the same writing group as Nicholas Sparks.

However, this book is about a family of women [mom and her 2 daughters and their aunt (mom's sister)] who go to stay on Tuckernuck, an island just outside of Nantucket, in house that's very old. They are forced to bond because there's not much else to do but like anytime you get more than one woman in a house - there's drama. In the end, we learn everything happens for a reason.

I would recommend for mindless, easy reading - it was a good story and I like the way it unfolded.
