Predictable plot, but likeable characters. This took place on the coast of North Carolina and finishes a trilogy featuring three sisters.  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

Author is a wonderful speaker--if you've seen him on TV he's the long white haired Asian scientist--his explanations sometimes get a little deep--my recommendation is that you read till you understand it, then when he goes deep, skip a few paragraphs. Here's a good quote from the book, "in the next 5 years, IBM scientists claim that we will be able to mentally communicate with computers...using the power of the mind to make phone calls and drive cars"  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

As a fan of Lisa Scottoline's previous legal thrillers, her return to writing about Bennie Rosato's law firm was like getting re-aquainted with old friends. A good summer read.  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

This book was a short and entertaining read, however it did not stick out in my mind as anything special. While it gave a brief over view of many aspects of these young women's lives it did not specifically focus on one person or one part of their lives. I think it would have been better if there was more detail or more of a story line.  Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog

Book two of the trilogy continued the story of Mary and her battle to balance the world between the living and the Returned. I'm truly not a fan of zombie books, but this series has plenty of other directions that the book hooked me. It was better than the first book of the series, and I can't wait to read the third.   Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library Card Catalog
