"The Collector"

I found a few great books at the thrift shop 

I love finding books that are by some of my favorite authors at a great low price!

This week I read "The Collector" and found I could hardly put it down.  I liked the characters and the plot was interesting.  Take a professional house sitter who is also a writer and mix them up with an up and coming painter, add theft, murder and love to the mix and you have a really great story from the pen of Nora Roberts.  It kept me engaged and reading late into the night to finish it, always a sign of a good story!

I just started "The Island" by Elin Hildebrand and will share what I think of this book next week!

I'm joining  Literary Friday

Wishing you JOY,

I'm always drawn to books set at the ocean so Island would get my attention! I love to read! We're sisters of course! Hugs, Diane

Sounds like my kind of story Linda. Our library has a used book store, so I'm looking for that one when I head there today. :)

Hi Linda! I've heard of 'The Collector' and thanks for the review as I may want to read it sometimes. Thanks for popping in to see me and I'll bet you're the only one who's never been even called! :)
Be a sweetie,
