Stopped by my favorite used bookstore and picked up a few new reads. Since one of the owners has similar reading tastes, I went with her recommendations.
Better Read Than Dead by Victoria Laurie
Word of Abby’s talents reading tarot cards has reached a mob boss who wants her help in some business matters and he doesn’t take no for an answer. When the police seek out her psychic intuition to shed light on a masked man who’s been attacking women, Abby finds herself working both sides of the law on her own, leading her to wonder, why didn’t I see this coming?

Night Film by Marisha Pessl
On a damp October night, 24-year-old Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive cult-horror film director Stanislaus Cordova–a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.

I’ve been following Susan Hyatt online for awhile now, so decided to buy her newest book thanks to an Amazon credit. Excited to see if her books live up to her emails and Facebook chats!
Bare by Susan Hyatt
In her second book, Bare, Susan Hyatt presents a badass, feminist approach to transforming your body and your life.
Bare is a must-read book if you want to take excellent care of yourself, upgrade your mental and physical health, build confidence, conquer your goals, crush the patriarchy, and look and feel damn good doing it. (Goodreads)
