What I’m Reading…
Blurb – She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.
Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.
When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.
Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.
To be honest, I didn’t expect much from this. I’ve read Meyer’s Twilight series (who hasn’t) but not her adult fiction. I picked this up as research for the spy series I’m writing and while it hasn’t given me much insight, I am enjoying it more than expected! I’m pleasantly surprised by it. Even though Meyer’s writing is more telling than showing, I’m caught up with the story and the characters. So much that I’m looking forward to a chunk of time to finish the thing. I expect bedtime might be later than usual tonight so I can find out what happens!
What I’ve Read…
Blurb – Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora, but one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents, but the truth is a much more complicated story.
Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they’ve kept for years.
What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family, a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.
I liked this better than Girl on the Train. While I figured that one out about halfway through, The Couple kept me guessing. And I definitely didn’t see the end coming!
What am I Reading Next…
After I finish The Chemist, I’ll only have 3 more books to go to finish my Goodreads challenge of 60 books! I’m looking for light and fluffy, something I can whip through before Christmas. Any suggestions? I’ve got a Christina Lauren and a Cora Carmack on my pile that will be quick reads.
