Adult Summer Reading Raffle Book Reviews
Week 4


Lone Wolf by Jody Picoult.  5 Stars.  “Loved it.  Read it before or after The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.  Full circle of life!!” – Cindy Raphael

The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty.  5 Stars.  “Fabulous story line.  Plenty of sidelines.  Could put it down!  Highly recommend.” – Neysa Scala


Jack 1939 by Francine Mathews.  4 Stars.  “I love reading mysteries, thrillers, and historical fiction.  Jack 1939 fits all these categories, so this was a definite winner for me.  The book is well written, and the suspense builds with each chapter.  The interplay between FDR and the young Jack Kennedy is fascinating, and the detailing of the pre-war atmosphere in Paris and London is chilling.  I hope that this author will write other stories centering on WWII.” – John Buckley


Potboiler by Jesse Kellerman.  4 Stars.  “Though it takes about 100 pages to really get going, Potboiler is a really fine spoof of the typical spy novel.  Very clever indeed and it gets better and better as it goes along. (This misses a 5-star rating due to an utterly inconsistent ending).  Lotsa fun!” – Marty Cohen

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult.  5 Stars.  “Definitely the best book I’ve read by her.  An interesting read about a school shooting, it grabs your attention right away.  A twist in plot and mixed perceptions definitely held my attention.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone.” – Shannon Andrews
