Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
This laugh-out-loud memoir takes readers through Kaling’s awkward childhood moments and her rocky start in New York to her success as a writer on the Office. Her observations about men, body image, and life are both spot-on and humorous. Those who enjoyed Tina Fey’s Bossypants will find this novel particularly enjoyable.
Rush of Blood
I like Mark Billingham's Thorne series. This stand-alone murder mystery involves three British couples on holiday in Florida. This vacation takes a criminal twist when a young girl goes missing and is later found dead in a lagoon. The six Britons are suspects and Billingham keeps the suspense going. When another young girl is missing in England, the six who have returned from Florida are even more suspect. Great ending.
Kate Moore and her husband decide to accept a job offer in Luxemburg. While her husband begins his new job and Kate spends more time with her children she must learn how to adjust to the daily life in a new country. Kate begins to notice her husband’s suspicious behavior and also becomes suspicious of another American couple they have befriended. As she begins to investigate she becomes nervous they are connected to her past. Mystery lovers will enjoy this novel which keeps them guessing until the very end.
