There is just something special about having a good book to read on a winter day. The snow may be falling outside, but you are cozy and warm inside, next to the fire and a cup of something warm nearby. Before Kindle, I would be happy to have a stack of books from the library. Now, I am happy to have a list of books on my wish list, just waiting to be downloaded whenever I am ready. Reading is my happy place when cabin fever strikes.
An old favorite mystery series has a new offering in February and I always look forward to catching up with life in Lake Eden, Minnesota and cookie baker Hannah Swensen. There is murder, mayhem and cookie recipes; all in one book.
A new Jane Green novel, Saving Grace is out now and is next on my list to start reading. I always have enjoyed her writing style; a perfect mix of seriousness and humor. I also love her take on American life from her British perspective.
The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins is getting very good reviews and is being called the best psychological thriller of the year. It is being compared to both Gone Girl and Alfred Hichcock's Rear Window. Also, all the reviews say you will not be able to stop reading once you start - my favorite kind of book.
