 Good Monday all , hope you are all reading something good and staying cool . Today we are going to review a great book , and I must say I love this author . I am in the process of reading all that she has to read . Today's book is TWO NIGHTS by my new favourite author Kathy Reichs .

                         BOOK BLURB 


A standalone thriller featuring a “tough-talking, scarred heroine”* from the author of the Temperance Brennan series, the basis for the hit TV show Bones.

Meet Sunday Night, a woman with physical and psychological scars, and a killer instinct. . . .

Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing. But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie’s help. Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn’t she want to be found?

It’s time for Sunnie to face her own demons—because they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

                      MY REVIEW 
         This book blew me away , I have heard about here other series and I was excited to sit down and read this book.  I started reading and couldn't put it down , the author sucked me into the story after the third page.  Let me introduce you to Sunday Night is a woman who is battling her own demons and is in semi retirement on Goat island . Where she is living as a recluse , trying to rebuild her life. Until the day a young girl goes missing and she is called back into action with her brother Gus . They are on the way to finding the girl and on the way she battles her own demons and by battling those long lost demons she may be on the road to finding the girl and putting her past behind her . Will she survive and will she find the girl alive . 
      What I love about this author's characters is that they are flawed but they are also redeemable . Case in point Sunday has some very bad demons that she is trying to bury and keep buried . She is trying so hard but you can see her struggling and you want her to get through it all and come out the other side . As she starts to go through her demons when she is out trying to find the girl . You see a side of her that can be kind of scary at times . She is like a ticking time bomb , but she does rein it in and get control. By the end of the book you see a much calmer and happier Sunday . The grandmother of the missing girl is rich and very manipulative and I was like wow grandma is kind of bad ass, in the way she twists everyone . The characters are all very well written and very complex, there is no real black and white its all shades of grey with these characters. But when the bad guys do show up you know they are bad and boy can the author write some bad characters as well as the good guys . 
      The author is a definite go to for books that will make you think as you read them . The twists and turns are unbelievable . One min you are thinking no you can't go there and bam she does . One min you are thinking it is one person and then you get taken down another direction. This is a fast paced story with lots of action that will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time . The new cast of characters are great and you will cheer for them and maybe shed a tear or two . She is one of the best in her genre of writing . Her books are suspenseful and fast paced , clever and well written mysteries . So if you want a book that will take you on a roller coaster ride that you will keep you on your toes and reading well into the night . This is the book for you and definite addition to your summer reading list
