Sylvia’s Adult Book Selections (Week of May 18, 2020)

Masked Prey by John Sandford.  One of my favorite series. Also good as a stand alone.  U. S. Marshall Lucas Davenport is called to Washington DC to investigate a website showing pictures of DC politicians’ children at school, on the playground, at Starbucks…  Marshalls, Bob & Rae, join him in this chilling action packed thriller. 

Lost Roses by Martha Hall Kelly. Great historical fiction. This wonderful novel follows three amazing women from St. Petersburg to Paris during World War 1.  A tale of love and friendship that carry us through the worst of times. Great characters.  Really enjoyed it!!!!
