Monthly Book Review: June 2017

I moved into my new home for the next year. I feel exhausted and efficient ... listening to books while purging/packing/unpacking my entire life over the past month allowed me to accomplish two things at once!

The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty - Big Little Lies is my favorite Moriarty book to date and this is a close second. Assumptions, secrets and thinking the grass is greener on the other side drive the actions of three women, three husbands and a PE teacher.

In Farleigh Field by Rhys Bowen - a chaste early WWII romance mystery. Pro-German aristocracy attempt to return the Duke of Windsor to the throne for the presumed inevitable Nazi occupation. I figured out whodunit just before it was finally revealed.

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh - billed as the latest Gone Girl, most of the story alternates between male and female protagonists. A hit and run kills five-year old Jacob. What happened before and after keeps you guessing. Hard to describe without divulging spoilers.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan - this has a lot of buzz so I figured it was time to join the party. Nick brings his Chinese born American girlfriend home to Singapore for the society wedding of the decade. How will his family and large social circle within this tiny community react? First in a series of three ... currently being made into a film and I can hardly wait for the opulent fashion and over-the-top locations.

China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan - I liked the first book so much that I had to read the sequel. Vivid descriptions of the over-the-top characters and their glamorous ridiculous lifestyles really draw me in. I may have done a genealogy chart on a sticky note to help me keep up with who's who.
