Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

Do Not Read in Public

Killer Characters - Ellery Adams

This is set Oyster Bay, NC, and Olivia helping her friend Laurel deal with all that is expected of her while her mil dies from cancer. As she is at Laurel's in-law's house, she overhears something suspicious between Laurel's husband and the nurse, Stacy. She goes to Laurel's house and tells her what she heard and then stands by Laurel when they go to find Laurel's husband with Stacy and then when Stacy is murdered and Laurel is the prime suspect. 


As they begin the search for the truth they find out that Stacy has been stealing from the people she is caring for in the hospice. As they continue to work they discuss the issues that made them who they are and how they trust or not trust. 


I had moments where I didn't like how the writing went and there were moments where my heart broke for Laurel. I had read something written by another that said the author said this was not going to be a Disney ending and I was uncertain about what that meant. Then as I read the ending I started crying and realized that I should have only been at home when I reached this point and I really wanted to hold my husband tight. 


Also, this is another book that is the middle or end of the series. It wasn't a problem with reading this book first as I didn't wonder about the earlier books. I may read the earlier books, knowing my luck, out of order and I do plan on finding more by this author.
