Listen – before you get onto me – I’ve been busy!
So October was 2 books… I’m sorry!
But two is better than nothing for recommendations, right?
I think so!
Killers of a Certain Age – https://amzn.to/3Tz3HeL
They’ve spent their lives as the deadliest assassins in a clandestine international organization, but now that they’re sixty years old, four women friends can’t just retire – it’s kill or be killed in this action-packed thriller by New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-nominated author Deanna Raybourn.
Billie, Mary Alice, Helen, and Natalie have worked for the Museum, an elite network of assassins, for forty years. Now their talents are considered old-school and no one appreciates what they have to offer in an age that relies more on technology than people skills.
When the foursome is sent on an all-expenses paid vacation to mark their retirement, they are targeted by one of their own. Only the Board, the top-level members of the Museum, can order the termination of field agents, and the women realize they’ve been marked for death.
Now to get out alive they have to turn against their own organization, relying on experience and each other to get the job done, knowing that working together is the secret to their survival. They’re about to teach the Board what it really means to be a woman—and a killer—of a certain age.
The Haunting of Ashburn House – https://amzn.to/3g0fpRV
Everyone knows about Ashburn House. They whisper its old owner went mad, and restless ghosts still walk the halls. They say it’s the dwelling place of something cruel and sinister. But when Adrienne―desperate and in need of a place to stay―inherits the crumbling old mansion, she only sees it as a lifeline… until darkness falls.
Strange messages are etched into the walls. Furniture moves when she leaves the room. There’s something here―something powerful, angry, and hell-bent on shaking things up. Worse, a grave hidden in the depths of the forest hints at a terrible, unforgivable secret. Eventually Adrienne can’t ignore that a twisted thing lives in the house, its hungry eyes ever-watchful. Chasing the threads of a decades-old mystery, it isn’t long before she realizes she’s become prey to something deeply unnatural and intensely resentful.
She has no idea how to escape. She has no idea how to survive. Only one thing is certain: Ashburn’s dead are not at rest.
They were both REALLY good – so I recommend them!!!
I am hoping to read more this month – aka November.
I am currently reading this month’s book club book and so far I am not far into it but I am trying!
I’ve been sick so reading makes me sleepy!
Trying to read yesterday I got a few pages in and fell asleep so it wasn’t working so well.
But hopefully soon I’ll be reading more than a few pages and falling asleep!
