Lisa Scottoline Writes Humor?

I am a huge Lisa Scottoline fan. Her suspense novels are fabulous and keep me guessing to the very last page. Who knew she could also write humor? Scottoline and her daughter, Francesca Serritella, teamed up to put together one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. Titled Meet Me at Emotional Baggage Claim, the book caught my eye on the new nonfiction shelves the other day and I read it last night from cover to cover. It is hilarious!

The New Thriller by Lisa Gardner is Outstanding

Touch and Go, the new thriller by Lisa Gardner, can only be described as an edge-of-your seat thrill ride. The story features the kidnapping of a high-flying CEO Justin Denbe, along with his wife, Libby, and their teenage daughter Ashlyn. The Denbe's have the kind of life you read about in the pages of a glossy magazine; a gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, a great marriage, a perfect life.
