- The Lost Man, Jane Harper, thriller ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I love this author. Her first book, The Dry, was one of my favorites a few years ago. The Australian landscape is a major feature in each of her books. This one opens with two brothers standing over the body of their third brother, and explores lots of family dynamics while unwinding the mystery of the circumstances of their brother’s death. It was intriguing and the characters are strong.
- The Islanders, Meg Mitchell Moore, fiction ⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was a fun summer beach read. It’s not a super gripping story or remarkably well written, but it’s light and entertaining. I enjoyed it.
