This is the second in the Alaska series. The story continues with some of the characters from the 1st book. This is an easy read and a good book. I liked the first better, but this one was good and I have ordered the 3rd book in the series from PaperBackSwap so I can finish off. This series by Debbie Macomber does want to make the reader visit Alaska!

Casino Island is one of a handful of John Grishman's books that don't involve lawyers, such as Skipping Christmas and Playing for Pizza. I had just finished reading Rooster Bar and was a bit disappointed in it, but decided to read Camino Island anyway. I'm glad I did! There's a cast of interesting characters, a crime, but no lawyers, and a great story idea. The book was well written, leaving til the end the who-done-it and will they get caught or not. I highly recommend this book. You won't want to put it down and when it ends, you'll want to know what happens next in the lives of the characters.

This was the first Liane Moriarty book I've read. It was interesting and well written. The story flowed easily and the characters were well developed. I sort of-kind of guessed who done-it, and was right, but had the wrong reason. It is an enjoyable beach, vacation read. I am looking forward to reading her other books.

This book should be a required read to every parent of a teen. I read this book last year when my daughter was 16 and my son 15. The ages are similiar to the characters in this book.

I couldn't put it down and continued to read through crying eyes. My eyes were puffy and red, and I still continued to read.

When I get up the courage, I will read it again. I can't re-read it while my kids are still in high school.

This was my second book by Sylvia Day, the first being "Pride and Pleasure", which I enjoyed, but liked "Seven Years to Sin" better. The characters are more engaging and the story line flows very smoothly. There is not much detail in the looks of the characters, which Johanna Lindsey does wonderfully, but there is enough to imagine what they look like. The 'love' scenes are spicy. I love historical romance novels. This is a keeper and one I'll read again.

This was only my second Jodi Picoult story I've read, the other being My Sister's Keeper, which I thought was very good.

The first part of this book is typical of the way books are written today. With one character telling his side of the story then flipping to another character in another chapter with his/her story. This part of the book is not very good. The story is building, but very slow. The storyteller (Jodi Picoult) doesn't do a good job with this section of telling the story.

Once you get to the second part of the book, the Storyteller (both Picoult and the character storyteller) does a very good job interacting all the players and writing the old fashioned way - seeing different points of view from different sides all the while keeping the reader in suspense. Once into this part of the book, it is difficult to put the book down.

Also, the story of the girl, the soldier, the grandaughter and her friends are all very interesting. the story-in-the-story, I sometimes skipped over as that was not very interesting.

This was my second Liane Moriatry book. What Alice Forgot is an interesting story idea - Alice falls of her spin bike in gym class and completely forgets the past 10 years of her life. This was well written and easy to follow the cast of characters.

This is a good beach book - interesting and a quick read. I would recommend this book.
