Red Leaves and Look Again

This book was so good! It is narrated by Eric Moore whose 15-year-old son is suspected of abducting and killing the eight-year-old he was babysitting. It is disturbing and hard to read but I couldn't put it down. The writing is wonderful and the characters are human.

I'll be looking for more books by this author!

Two good books in one week. Whoo!

This is another one that grabbed hold and wouldn't let go until the last page. Ellen Gleeson notices that a "Have you seen this child?" flyer in the mail looks an awful lot like her adopted son, Will.

The more she looks into it, the more convinced she becomes and the higher the danger to her son and herself.

Wow, lucky you to get two good books in a row. That almost never happens. Red Leaves has a beautiful cover even if the subject matter is disturbing. It looks like one I'd like. Have a great week Linda!

I love the Red Leaves cover ... and it sounds like a gripping read.
