There are times in life when nothing beats a good, gripping thriller. November has been one of those times for me and I have distracted myself out of my funk with a few mindless, yet highly entertaining reads. The value of these types of books are that they are engaging without being too taxing. This is a huge plus when one’s brain is already overloaded with other things. This is clearly not such a good thing if you are the author of The Kindly Ones which is waiting patiently, book-marked at page 250, for the clouds to clear and reading to resume!!
Two thrillers which kept me occupied briefly were:
Face of Betrayal, Lisa Wiehl
The 7th Victim, Alan Jacobson
I enjoyed Jacobson’s book so much (in part because it was a Kindle freebie!) that I am now reading another of his tales called Crush (also free on Kindle).
