The Paradise Guest House

I just finished reading THE PARADISE GUEST HOUSE byEllen Sussman.  It was good I would recommend it to customers.  Jamie returns to Bali where, on year before, she lost her boyfriend and helped rescue many from a bombed building.  She was invited by the government for the one year anniversary all expenses paid.  Jamie wasn't sure if she wanted to go but she knew she needed to find the man who helped with the rescue and took care of her.  She was afraid that she wouldn't be able to handle the memories that have been nightmares for the year.

OUT OF RANGE by Hank Steinberg

OUT OF RANGE is written by Hank Steinberg who also created the tv show Without a Trace.  True to the tv show; the book is also a cliff hanger.  Working for world peace and equity, Charlie and Julie want to change the world until they almost die.  Charlie wants to hide and not think about this time but Julie is finding being a chauffeur boring.  Julie wants that excitement and exhilaration back.  Then, Julie is kidnapped and Charlie must face that life he wants to forget.  No one believes he did not kill his wife; no one will search the places or people Charlie knows took his wife.  Charlie has to do this by himself.  Can he save Julie?

Unremembered by Jessica Brody

Violet (Sera) is found in the ocean after a terrible plane crash.  She is the only survivor and has no injuries.  How could this be?  She has no memory at all past or present even her name.  Who is she and who is the boy that keeps confronting her saying he is her friend?  And then, people start chasing her and seem to want to harm her.  Violet does not know who she can trust.  I really enjoyed this YA book but I hope it's not the last one.  Ms. Brody left too many unanswered questions.
