Whispers and Lies - Joy Fielding
Terry senses something isn't quite right when Allison moves into her spare cottage, but loneliness and boredom cause her to befriend the free-spirited young woman anyway. This is a suspense novel, but it kind of dragged for awhile. I was frustrated about some things, but by the end most of it gets wrapped up pretty well, although extremely oddly. (I still have questions, though.) It wasn't what I expected, but mostly entertaining throughout. Fielding is a very good writer, even though some of her topics can get dark.

One False Move - Harlan Coben
5th book in the Myron Bolitar series. I enjoyed this a lot!

2017 books: sadly I'm at 5 for the year, so far. NOT a very read-y year so far. Maybe the second half will be different.

One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by B.J. Novak 3/5
A book of short stories by that writer/actor from The Office.  Some of the stories are very, very short.  Overall, they are creative and have an element of surprise.  I really enjoyed reading this.

Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living by Nick Offerman 3/5
I liked listening to this book read by Nick Offerman (AKA Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec.)  He's interesting and funny.  He told about his childhood and how he got started in show business.  He's also fairly vulgar.  I didn't realize that he's married to Megan Mullally, who played his ex-wife on Parks and Rec.  It's funny how in many ways, he's a lot like his Ron Swanson character.  He has woodworking skills and likes to be out in nature.
