My Name is Mary Sutter is a historical novel following a young midwife determined to be a surgeon in a time when having a woman in medicine was unheard of. This book follows Mary's career as she leaves home and travels to Washington DC to help the wounded men in the Civil war.
I'm not normally one to like this type of love story, but I needed an easy read to get my mojo back and thought this book might do the trick. The Best of Me is a Romeo and Juliet type love story with the High School sweethearts reconnecting after a 25 year separation. Unfortunately, 25 years of separation includes a marriage by one of the lovers, which in turn leads to infidelity. Then after the infidelity, the book becomes very predictable. Sorry peeps, one of those books I read but wouldn't recommend.
I have had several friends recommend the Stephanie Plum novel series to me, but hadn't paid much attention until I found it on my library shelf one day and thought I would give it a try. One for the Money follows Stephanie Plum on her new job as a bounty hunter trying to capture a local vice cop. She has no experience and has lots to learn. It's a good easy beach read to add to your summer reading list.
So, that's what I've been reading. What have you been reading?
