Wednesday #wanttoread List-Jenny Milchman Double Take!

This week is brought to you by books I want you to read...
I know what you are thinking...that I am the girl who reads fluff. I am the one who recommends books in the "Women's Fiction" genre. I rarely read Literary Fiction only because the depth of concentration it requires is usually not within my grasp. I recently turned over a new genre leaf after reading The Stranger by Harlan Coben, and now I am hooked! What took me so long to read this genre? I've missed out on a lot of reading opportunities, but that will not happen again! I also am writing today to get you started on two great mysteries, both from the same author-Jenny Milchman.

Cover of Snow

When a story starts out with a suicide, and then the pieces of the puzzle slowly add up together, you know you have the makings of a great audio book. The police corruption, and the suspicion of all the characters make this audio book a great companion for your commute, workout or chore list! 

Waking up one wintry morning in her old farmhouse nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, Nora Hamilton instantly knows that something is wrong. When her fog of sleep clears, she finds her world is suddenly, irretrievably shattered: Her husband, Brendan, has committed suicide.

The first few hours following Nora’s devastating discovery pass for her in a blur of numbness and disbelief. Then, a disturbing awareness slowly settles in: Brendan left no note and gave no indication that he was contemplating taking his own life. Why would a rock-solid police officer with unwavering affection for his wife, job, and quaint hometown suddenly choose to end it all? Having spent a lifetime avoiding hard truths, Nora must now start facing them.

Unraveling her late husband’s final days, Nora searches for an explanation—but finds a bewildering resistance from Brendan’s best friend and partner, his fellow police officers, and his brittle mother. It quickly becomes clear to Nora that she is asking questions no one wants to answer. For beneath the soft cover of snow lies a powerful conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep its presence unknown . . . and its darkest secrets hidden.

To Read
As Night Falls

Oh, goodness, this is a woman's worst nightmare! Alone and isolated with a pair of murderers on the loose? The suspense will have you wondering what will happen next, and glancing sideways in to the blinds. It was quite a book. Truly a page-turner and a great segue in to this genre for a new mystery/thriller reader! 

Sandy Tremont has always tried to give her family everything. But, as the sky darkens over the Adirondacks and a heavy snowfall looms, an escaped murderer with the power to take it all away draws close.

In her isolated home in the shadowy woods, Sandy prepares dinner after a fight with her daughter, Ivy. Upstairs, the fifteen-year-old—smart, brave, and with every reason to be angry tonight—keeps her distance from her mother. Sandy’s husband, Ben, a wilderness guide, arrives late to find a home simmering with unease.

Nearby, two desperate men on the run make their way through the fading light, bloodstained and determined to leave no loose ends or witnesses. After almost twenty years as prison cellmates, they have become a deadly team: Harlan the muscle, Nick the mind and will. As they approach a secluded house and look through its windows to see a cozy domestic scene, Nick knows that here he will find what he’s looking for . . . before he disappears forever.

Opening the door to the Tremont home, Nick brings not only a legacy of terror but a secret that threatens to drag Sandy with him into the darkness.
