Reading Ahead: February 2015, part 5

One of the best parts of the cold weather (I'm trying for some silver lining here, folks. Work with me!) is that it lends the perfect excuse to curling up on the couch with a great book for some easy reading. If that sounds good to you, here are a few up-and-coming easy-reading titles you may want to line up for a weekend avoiding the cold weather.

Prodigal Son, by Danielle Steel.  Twin boys grow up in the same family, in the same town. Dramatically different, they become bitter enemies, even as children. One good, one bad. One leaves his peaceful hometown, but when all else fails, the prodigal son returns, twenty years later. The reunion of brothers, sweet and healing at first, exposes shattering revelations of good and evil. A suspenseful story of suspicion, betrayal, and a life-and-death struggle for survival as the question arises again and again, which twin is good and which is evil?

Obsession in Death, by J.D. Robb. Eve Dallas has solved a lot of high-profile murders for the NYPSD and gotten a lot of media coverage. She, and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are getting accustomed to being objects of attention, gossip, and speculation.  But now Eve has become the object of one person’s obsession. Someone who finds her extraordinary and thinks about her every hour of every day. Who believes the two of them have a special relationship. Who would kill for her, again and again… Fans are already lining up for this new title, so put your requests in now!

Double Fudge Brownie Murder, by Joanne Fluke. Life in tiny Lake Eden, Minnesota, is usually pleasantly uneventful. Lately, though, it seems everyone has more than their fair share of drama--especially the Swensen family. With so much on her plate, Hannah Swensen can hardly find the time to think about her bakery--let alone the town's most recent murder. Nervous about the upcoming trial for her involvement in a tragic accident, Hannah is eager to clear her name once and for all, but her troubles only double when she finds the judge bludgeoned to death with his own gavel--and she is the number one suspect. Cozy mystery fans, if you're not reading this series, I highly recommend you start! If you're new to the Hannah Swensen series, start with The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder.
