Anybody read Mo Hyder? She's like a British Karin Slaughter..in fact it was Karin who recommended her to me. She's a seriously good writer, but she does get really into some dark stuff. She kind of makes "Silence of the Lambs" look like a nursery rhyme.
I broke down and got the new Phillipa Gregory. "The White Queen." OK, I'm hanging on, but what's gotten into her? These past two books feature women who are just not likeable nor anyone you can pull for. I don't mind villainesses...love them! But Gregory's heroines are turning into vanilla pudding. Yawn.
I also just let my darling neighborhood book store owner talk me into buying Diana Garibaldi's first, "Outlander." I am not a bodice-ripper fan, but this friend just swears these are the BEST. Any thoughts?
