Mitchard returns to the Cappadoras from The Deep End of the Ocean (Oprah’s first book club pick), proving that, sometimes, sequels work. In this harrowing outing, set 13 years after the events of Ocean, the oldest Cappadora son, Vincent, 29, has become a filmmaker, and with the help of his brother, Ben (who was kidnapped in the first book), and sister, Kerry, makes a documentary about child abduction. When the film is nominated for an Academy Award, the family is pushed into the scrutinizing eye of the public, and then tragedy strikes with the disappearance of Ben’s daughter, plunging the family into a riveting ordeal that takes them from Hollywood to a grim, middle-of-nowhere confrontation. Along the way, family bonds are stretched to the breaking point, and Mitchard charts a tormented family dynamic with shocking ease. This action-packed and emotionally rich drama is every bit as satisfying as its predecessor.

How to Tame a Modern Rogue by Diana Holquist

How to Tame a Modern Rogue

Ally Giordano‚Äôs beloved grandmother actually believes that she’s living in her favorite romance novel in Regency England and Ally doesn’t have the heart to set her straight. But now Granny Donny’s last wish is for a retreat to the country and Ally can’t refuse her…until she demands that Sam Carson accompany them. And though his smiles turn her knees into jelly, Ally knows better than to trust a playboy…and she definitely knows better than to try to change one. Or does she?

* * * * * * *

Granny Donny wants to spend time at her home in the country outside of London – well, Long Island will have to do. AND she thinks Sam is the perfect suitor for her granddaughter Ally so he must accompany them to the country.

Ally has big trust issues so she refuses to consider a serious relationship with “rogue-ish” Sam. He has a wall around his true feelings – there’s no way he will consider a committed relationship ever again. Ally and Sam agree to pretend for Granny Donny’s sake. Let the fun begin!

I enjoyed reading this book. I found myself laughing out loud many times and caring about all of the characters. I loved the pace of the story and wasn’t ready for it to end when I turned the last page. I’ll be looking for more books by Diana Holquist.
