Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

OMG!! So many twists and turns!! The characters were total train wrecks and utterly despicable, but I found that I couldn't stop reading!! You think you had it figured out, then BAM!, another twist. Hated the ending, though.

Attention grabbing opener
Gone Daddy Gone (Sloane Monroe) (Volume 7) - Cheryl Bradshaw

Talk about starting out with a bang! The opening chapter of Gone Daddy Gone certainly grabs the attention of the reader and sets up the whodunit for this tale. This is my first read in this series and it is obvious that Sloane has a past, but I had no trouble following the story line. The book is well-written, the characters are interesting, and the pacing keeps the story moving quickly. We also get snippets from the bad guy that are a bit creepy and a nice addition to the story.

While it doesn't take long to figure out the direction of the tale, the details were a surprise - at least to me. I can't speak for those that are familiar with the series. Overall, this mystery pulled me in and held my interest throughout, and the characters are sufficiently interesting to have me looking up earlier books in the series.

Gone to Dust
Gone to Dust: A Novel - Matt Goldman
How do you solve a murder when all the DNA evidence has been compromised? With determination, resourcefulness and some wit according to private detective, Nils Shapiro. When Nils is called in on an investigation which occurred out of his usual district, Nils finds that whoever executed the killing had planned it well in advance. The house in which the murder had taken place is covered in dust, dust that looks as if it was removed from vacuum cleaner bags.
 
I enjoyed all the different avenues that Nils navigates to track down the killer and establish what that individual’s motivation was, to commit such a crime. It’s not a cut-and-dry case but one where there are ample individuals who have the motive to complete the task. Nils was a great character as he didn’t play a hotshot detective but he was a guy who was dealing with his own issues but his mannerism was calm and collective. He was a nosey individual, one that looked at all sides before committing himself to his own opinion. I enjoyed the ending of the novel. As Nils solves the case, his thinking is explained and rationalized, taking all other suspects out of the picture.
 
Using this novel for my Amateur Sleuth square in Halloween Bingo

Gone with the Dead: An Anthology of Romance and Horror by Lori Perkins
Gone with the Dead: An Anthology of Romance and Horror - Lori Perkins
Oh my what a book. It's hot and steamy along with scary. I honestly cannot pick one story I liked the most. I love reading paranormal and I love the south. With this book coming from Atlanta it was kind of like going home. I was raised about 20 minutes from Atlanta. I loved that these were short stories. Some I wish had of been a bit longer a few felt like they were rushed. Some I would love to read a whole book on. I was able to read this book without staying up late. I read a story here and there over a couple of days and my house still got cleaned, things were tended to and I got my reading in. 

There are 16 stories in the book. They feature all types of Paranormal from ghosts to vampires and everything in between. Great read any time of the year but great during the Halloween season.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

From New York Times bestselling author Cheryl Bradshaw:   A single moment is about to change Sloane Monroe's life forever ...   On an early winter morning, college student Shelby McCoy walks the quiet, snowy path back home. A tree branch snaps in the distance. Then another. A man is there with her, following close behind, whispering her name. She looks back, sees him gaining on her, and runs.

The man stood across from Bonnie and Hank’s hotel, watching everyone say goodbye. From the looks of things, Cade appeared to be returning to Wyoming, and Sloane would stay behind. Good. It would be much easier for him to divide and conquer this way. He took one last drag on his cigarette and flicked it to the ground, stubbing it out with the bottom of his shoe. He thought about leaving, but he couldn’t tear his eyes away from Cade and Sloane, holding hands, standing together beside the truck for one last embrace. The embrace was long. Too long. It made the man uncomfortable. Get on with it already. Leave. Viewing such tenderness between two people turned his stomach, like a virus had entered his body and quickly spread. Anger. Slow, festering anger. His heart beating faster and faster. He reached out, clutching a tree for support, inhaling and then exhaling and then inhaling again. Focus. Remember what you’re here for and why. You’re in control. It’s all going according to plan. Cade gripped the handle of the door, but then leaned back to Sloane, whispering something in her ear. For a moment it looked like she might cry, but she didn’t. Seeing the display of emotion between them was almost like witnessing two lovers on a movie screen, a magical connection that seemed too unrealistic to be real. For a fleeting moment the man was reminded of a time in his own life when he too had been in love. A time so long ago, he strained to remember it. Over the years he’d been with plenty of women. A few of them he’d even cared for on a marginal, detached level. The rest served a single purpose—a warm body on a cold, lonely night. He had only ever felt real love for a woman once, and that woman had been his wife, and when he lost her, he lost everything.

A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Bradshaw writes in the genres of mystery, thriller, romantic suspense, and supernatural suspense. To date, she has published almost two dozen novels and novellas, including her New York Times bestselling mystery series based on a sassy, OCD challenged private eye named Sloane Monroe. In 2013, Bradshaw’s fourth novel in the series, Stranger in Town, was a finalist for a Shamus Award, and that same year, book three in the series, I Have a Secret, won best thriller of the year from eFestival of Words. She was raised in California and currently resides in Salt Lake City, Utah.
