Linda's first go-round at the Owl was fall 2005 - winter 2007. After a hiatus for other work, she came back in January of 2011, and she's loved every minute of it! Her favorite genres have been legal suspense and books with well-defined, many-layered characters. Since reading Devil in the White City and Unbroken, she's become a big fan of historical writing as well. She feels privileged to be able to work with the wonderful staff at The Owl and to have the opportunity to interact with the faithful and neophyte customers who walk through our door.
Linda recommends: There are few things better than settling in for a story filled with raw and real human emotion and characters who are as flawed and as confused as I am! This was a somewhat dark page-turner that taunted me as each chapter brought me closer to the event that was foreshadowed early on in the story. I look forward to Ms. Haynes' next offering!
Linda says: what a storyteller! haynes weaves the most delicious and diabolically detailed tales! this is another must-read by one of my favorite authors.
Linda says: Lescroart never lets me down! Compelling characters, suspenseful and scintillating story line - the perfect book to lose one's self in!
Linda says: A well-crafted story that speaks to the deep connection that sisters have. Sarginson draws us into the tension of the family after one of them has disappeared into the sea, presumed dead. She helps us to see how each of them is affected by the tragedy, while creating a story of how we learn to relate to one another and, ultimately, find understanding.
Linda recommends: I'd forgotten how captivating O'Dell's writing is, and her newest is every bit as good as the last one I read. She knows about the human psyche and the human spirit, and her stories ring true and honest.
