⚖️ ????????? ??????? ⚖️

????? ????? is the acknowledged master of contemporary American legal thrillers. In 1987, Presumed Innocent skyrocketed to the top of the bestseller charts, setting the bar for other authors.

???????, out today, is about a female police chief accused of trading promotions for sexual favors. Turow says it includes "meditation about power & sexuality. That's a consistent theme throughout."

Dark, gallows humor; crisp, witty dialogue; & eccentric supporting characters punctuate 𝐓𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐌𝐲 𝐇𝐮𝐬𝐛𝐚𝐧𝐝 by 𝐄𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧 𝐌𝐞𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫. It's a hillariously outrageous look at a wife at her breaking point and a slyly thought-provoking meditation on marriage, expectations, complacency, & the importance of communication in relationships. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had the pool mostly to myself for quite some time this afternoon, which meant it was quiet and I got thoroughly absorbed in 𝐈𝐜𝐞 𝐎𝐮𝐭 by 𝐒𝐮𝐬𝐚𝐧 𝐒𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐳𝐚! I'm anxious to finish it!

Kicked off my vacation reading 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗜𝘀𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗱 by 𝗔𝗱𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗠𝗰𝗞𝗶𝗻𝘁𝘆 on the island of Maui with a view of the islands of Lana'i & Moloka'i. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Now soft morning breezes, coffee, & 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗠𝘂𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝗥𝘂𝗹𝗲 by 𝗗𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗹𝗮 𝗠𝗰𝗧𝗶𝗲𝗿𝗻𝗮𝗻 on my 7th-floor lanai are perfect. The cloud cover has lifted, the sun is shining. It will be pool time soon.⁣

What are you reading this weekend?

JHSiess @Chelsea.Poole This is my home-away-from-home. I would live here 3-4 months of the year . . . if I could afford it. Alas, I'm limited to about 6 weeks/year. #FirstWorldProblem

Author 𝐊𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝗪𝐞𝐬𝐭 crafts a story about ambition, drive, & what compromises one is willing to make to succeed. 𝐇𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐨𝐫 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐲 is an engrossing, thought-provoking, and emotionally timely & timeless tale of abuse of power and MeToo, betrayal, forgiveness, and reckoning.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The 2nd volume in 𝐊𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐲 𝐋𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐝𝐚𝐥𝐞's “No More“ trilogy has arrived! 𝐍𝐨 𝐌𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐋𝐢𝐞𝐬 examines the dysfunctional Carson family saga from Lily's perspective. Gripping domestic suspense, replete with secrets, lies, betrayals, & vengeance, and a vulnerable young man at the center of it all make it an emotionally rich page-turner. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

•• 𝐁𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐰 ••

𝐒𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐍𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐅𝐨𝐠 is a towering historical fiction work. 𝐄𝐫𝐢𝐤𝐚 𝐑𝐨𝐛𝐮𝐜𝐤 beautifully relates the stories of 2 women who fought back when evil forces invaded France & their lives. Her compassionate, straight-forward, & haunting narrative honors them, & their perseverance, sacrifices, humanity, & legacies. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
