And here is finally our Best of BARD list for December 2017!
At number 5, we have a book with an interesting title – Quick and Dirty! It’s the latest Stone Barrington novel by Stuart Woods, a mystery of a stolen Van Gogh painting, and no one knows if its authentic or fake. “Everyone in this series is richer than God, more beautiful and sexy than anyone that Hollywood ever dreamed of…and always right.”, said someone online.
“Since life moves fast and books should too”, at number 4 we present Malicious: a Mitchum story, by James Patterson and James O. Born. This pulse pounding thriller will make your blood pressure vary for 2 hours and 17 minutes! (I’m imagining Gerard Butler screaming “Spartaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!”, don’t know why…).
Dangerous Games, a romantic suspense by Tess Diamond is at number 3. According to Fantastic Fiction, “when an elite negotiator and a security expert team up to solve a kidnapping, the only thing higher than the tension is the heat . . .” I’ll let you to decide.
(My hand is shaking as we’re approaching number 1.)
At number 2 is The Rooster Bar by John Grisham, his 25th legal thriller! You will be familiarized with an imaginative way to handle student loans. I think that itself is a recommendation enough.
And finally, number 1 – The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter! According to the Skimm, “The Good Daughter is like Law and Order meets Good Wife.
Now, I’ve seen both shows… still can’t figure out what that means…
P.S. If you’re still not signed up for BARD, let me know.
