The Beautiful Dead Hardcover – January 3, 2017 by Belinda Bauer

Worth Getting in Bed For? No.This is a solid serial killer story that is a quick read. An interesting reflection on media and filming via cell phones rather than getting involved. Other than that, not a whole lot of character or plot development. This is the first book I’ve read by this author.

Watching Edie Hardcover – August 2, 2016 by Camilla Way

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. This is one of those books that you can’t turn away from although you know something terrible is going to happen.  Are friendships ever what they seem? Edie and Heather are both well drawn characters and the use of before and after alternating chapters works well at building suspense. A real page-Turner.

Interference Paperback – September 1, 2016 by Amélie Antoine (Author), Maren Baudet-Lackner (Translator)

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. This is a tricky one  to review. People really hated it or really liked it. It is not predictable. There are unreliable narrators. As a reader, you have to go along with the story for the reward. A man loses his wife and tries to move on with his life, or can he? Anything else is a spoiler.

The Treacherous Net (An Irene Huss Investigation)Hardcover – December 15, 2015 by Helene Tursten (Author),Marlaine Delargy (Translator)

Worth Getting in Bed For? No. I like Helene Tursten and the Irene Huss series, but this was a miss for me. There are two disconnected cases going on and it was distracting to skip between the cold case in another department and the current case dealing with cyber stalkers preying on young girls. The cases weren’t anything new or fresh.
