The Betrayal Knows My Name by Hotaru Odagiri

The Betrayal Knows My Name by Hotaru OdagiriYuki has the ability to feel people's emotions and learn their deepest secrets just by touching them.

This book is for anyone that likes shonenai-type manga. There is a character for every personality, so there's NO way you can't relate to any of the characters. The plot is fairly thick, as is the book.

Public Secrets by Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts is one of my favorite Authors. Her books are rich with likeable characters and stories with twists and turns. In Public Secrets, Emma McAvoy and her famous rock star father, Brian McAvoy, are the main characters. This story spans 23 years, from the British invasion of music to the American 1990s. In 1967, Brian McAvoy is a young man. He comes to fame and fortune with his new pregnant wife and his three old daughter, Emma. Brian is the lead singer of Devastation and they've taken the world by storm.

Brian, the son of Irish peasants, now has fame and the money that goes with it. However, that doesn’t stop tragedy from striking. Brian’s 2 years old son, Darren, is murdered during a bungled attempt at kidnapping. Why? Who would hurt little Darren? The whole world is in love with little Darren. Will they ever find out? Who will have to hurt, lose and come back to make life livable? This story is an example of how life is so strange; how what we do when we are young affects our dreams, futures, and life; and how one incident can your life change everything.

Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen

This is featuring Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles. Far from a Boston homicide, this features Dr. Isles at a convention in Wyoming where she meets up with a friend who is also a medical examiner. He has his 13 year old daughter with him, and a couple of friends who plan on going to a ski lodge after the convention. They are traveling in a blizzard and here is where the suspense keeps you from being able to put the book down. Stranded in the blizzard, they seek shelter, but soon find something very eerie about the town in which they find themselves.

Tess Gerritsen keeps your attention throughout, gripping the edge of your seat. In her true style of the Rizzoli and Isles books, this is a must read for her fans. Terror, suspense, feelings of being watched, and finding how the residents seemed to have disappeared rather suddenly are just some examples. Jane Rizzoli knows that something terrible has happened to her friend and goes to Wyoming to find her. The investigation and what happens to Dr. Isles and her companions will keep you reading from cover to cover.

Digging for the Truth by Josh Bernstein

This book is based on the History channel's show with the same name. Josh Bernstein is the book's author and the show's host; he is kind of a young Indiana Jones. The book, after giving a little biography of Josh, follows the first season of the show. It covers everything from who built the pyramids; to the Holy Grail; to the Ark of the Covenant; to Easter Island; to mysteries of the Mayans; and to the Nasca Lines. It's is very well written. After you read it, watch the show and the journey will be complete.
