This is a mystery thriller that I cannot wait to begin reading. It is a must read for me for my summer reading list. The book follows a woman’s brutal murder and the secrets and lies that are revealed. Many of the secrets are connected to the dynamics of marriages and the friendships that are kept.

Bookshop Description: The last thing Lizzie needs right now is a call from an inmate at Rikers asking for help–even if Zach Grayson is an old friend. But Zach is desperate: his wife, Amanda, has been found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their Brooklyn brownstone. And Zach’s the primary suspect.

As Lizzie is drawn into the dark heart of idyllic Park Slope, she learns that Zach and Amanda weren’t what they seemed–and that their friends, a close-knit group of fellow parents at the exclusive Brooklyn Country Day school, might be protecting troubling secrets of their own. In the end, she’s left wondering not only whether her own marriage can be saved, but what it means to have a good marriage in the first place.

After watching the Hulu Series on Hillary Clinton, I was so compelled to learn more about her. Running into this work of fiction got me thinking about this “what if Hillary never married Bill Clinton? What could of been of HIllary Clinton. This book takes readers on that journey.

Goodshop Description:But in Curtis Sittenfeld’s powerfully imagined tour-de-force of fiction, Hillary takes a different road. Feeling doubt about the prospective marriage, she endures their devastating breakup and leaves Arkansas. Over the next four decades, she blazes her own trail–one that unfolds in public as well as in private, that involves crossing paths again (and again) with Bill Clinton, that raises questions about the tradeoffs all of us must make in building a life.

5.In An Instant by Suzanne Redfearn

Because we all love a book that can give us that good cry that we need to have. This is described as a deeply moving story about life after a huge accident that changes everyone in the families life. It is a story of survival and family, and that so appropriate with the climate of the world today.
