To Read!

Woohoo! I have a new mystery novel to read. I just purchased Jennie Hansen's new book, If I Should Die. I love that title--it's a great chills-along-the-spine title.

Here's the blurb about the book:

"One morning on a routine jog, Kallene’s running partner, Linda, confides that she’s filing for divorce. The next morning, she’s gone without a trace, leaving behind her frightened young daughter. Since Linda’s enraged husband refuses to notify the police, Kallene steps in to initiate a missing person search, not knowing it would soon become a murder investigation — or that she’d soon fall for the charming lead detective. With Linda’s handsome brother also on her mind, Kallene must navigate the rapids of a double romance as well as the deepening suspicion in her upscale Utah neighborhood. Intrigue turns to danger as Kallene faces the consequences of hasty judgments. And when startling new evidence casts Linda’s murder as the work of a determined killer, Kallene needs the intervention of unlikely heroes to avoid being the next victim."

Jennie Hansen is one of the long-time stars of LDS fiction; in 2007, she received an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Whitney Awards. I bought the Kindle version of her new book--it is so cool to be able to purchase LDS fiction at the click of a button!

What's on your summer to-read list?


  1. Oooo ... interesting storyline. *sigh* I've been so busy editing, my to read list has gotten to 40 books. But I'm taking 2 weeks in July to just read and not write (while my ms is being critiqued). Might as well enjoy myself. =D

  2. Sounds like an awesome book! LOVE the cover.

  3. I'm reading it right now and enjoying it. I've made my guess as to who the killer is--wonder if I'll be right???
