Books I’ve Read and Loved, Part Five

People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry

This is the last book that I finished and I really enjoyed it! It’s a great beach read – not suspenseful or twisty, just an entertaining story.

Verity by Colleen Hoover

One of those books that just sticks with you. I still think about it! It’s dark and has some very tough content, but my goodness, I so enjoyed this read. I couldn’t put it down! I’m always a little envious when I hear from people who just started reading it because I wish I could experience it again.

Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle

Another suspenseful novel with twists and turns, this one kept me on my toes a bit. It’s an interesting read all the way through. It took a little bit of a left turn towards the end, but I would still say that it was an entertaining read!

An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena

I’m definitely a fan of Shari Lapena, as is evidenced by how many of her books I’ve read! She writes good suspense novels that won’t keep me up at night by being too dark. This was right in line with that.

The Wives by Tarryn Fisher

Another twisty, investigative novel that I was entertained by. It took a minute for me to get into it and figure out what was going on, but then I found myself fully invested in finishing out the story and seeing where the characters end up. It does deal with some triggering topics, so keep that in mind.
