I have a 5 star read to recommend - Benediction by Kent Haruf. Oh how I loved this book! I've read Haruf's Plainsong and am currently reading it's sequel Eventide which are both 4 stars for me, but Benediction pushed all of my buttons and made me cry. Haruf creates wonderful real life characters set in a small Colorado town and his writing style is very simple but so effective. I would describe his books as quiet stories about small town life. If you've never read him you are missing out.
My 4 star reads in May:
- Kill Shot by Vince Flynn
- This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash
- Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo
- The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein (TBR shelf)
- Field of Prey by John Sandford
Field of Prey is Sandford's newest Lucas Davenport book and it is one of my favorites with a compelling outstate Minnesota serial murder case, an interesting new local investigator and all the familiar characters I've grown to love. I started it on audio but had to finish it one late night via ebook. I am so spoiled by being a fast reader!
