What I Read: May

May was another slow month for reading. Life has been busy and my down time has been minimal. Such is life I guess, but I'd love to have more time to sit and read. I'll at least share the two books I did get around to finishing.

Books to Read May 2015 | www.shealennon.com


{one} Cane and Abe by James Grippando. If you're looking for a fun, page-turning, crime thriller, this one does the job nicely. Abe Beckham is a star prosecutor for the Miami State Attorney's Office, but a darker spotlight shines on him when his wife disappears during the investigation of a series of heinous murders. He lands himself in the suspect-zone for many reasons, one being that his marriage was on shaky ground from the beginning, when he was still grieving the loss of his first wife to cancer. Despite the suspicious connections to his past that keep showing up during the investigation, Abe fights tenaciously to prove his innocence. Thanks Krysten for the recommendation!

{two} Faithful Place by Tana French. After reading The Secret Place last month, I was itching to get my hands on another Tana French novel. Anne recommended this one, and it sucked me right in. This one focuses on Frank Mackey, an Irish undercover detective, who goes against his better judgment to revisit his family and his past. Despite being a grown man with a child of his own, he's never fully recovered from the loss of his first love, a girl who he thought had broken his heart by leaving town without him. When new evidence is found that points to a crime rather than a voluntary disappearance, Frank drops everything to get to the bottom of it. Just like the last one I read, this Tana French novel did not disappoint.
