Happy Monday readers! We have nine days before it is Christmas Day. Nine. Have I finished holiday shopping? No. Have I started holiday shopping? That would also be a no. Sigh…We have one weekend left before the holiday so I guess you know what I will be doing. My 5 month old dachshund had surgery a few days ago and now has to wear a cone for the next week to keep the incision from getting infected. She will definitely be getting a visit from Santa.
Title: Every Secret Thing
Author: Laura Lippman
Publisher: AVON BOOKS
Publication Date: 2003
Length: 410 pages
I know I have several readers of my blog that love suspense. I highly encourage reading Laura Lippman. Every Secret Thing was my first novel that I have read of hers. If you aren’t into suspense novels that are really graphic, this one is perfect. Lippman writes a novel about two young girls that are accused of murdering an infant. After their release from juvenile detention, all secrets and lies are exposed. Lippman writes with detail and keeps the story in an organized timeline so it is easy to follow. The novel isn’t a fast paced, edge of your seat read or a psychological thriller. She is a perfect read for fans of Mary Higgins Clark. The novel was also turned into a movie featuring Diane Lane and Dakota Fanning.
