Thrillers by the masters
I put this book at the top of the list because it’s the one I reread again and again, a novella that always takes my breath away. The epiphany that occurs at the end is absolutely haunting.

When Lake Warren learns that her husband Jack is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she’s pretty certain that things can’t get any worse. The upside is that she’s working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But when Lake finds Keaton with his throat slashed the morning after their one-night stand, she learns that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly.
I’m not a huge history reader so I when I do dig into the genre, I need something easy to digest. I found this book utterly riveting. You are right there as you read. It’s history and thriller rolled into one.
I love to go to plays but I also love to read them for some reason. Macbeth ties with Jean Anouilh’s Antigone as my absolute favorite. Each is a chilling tale about a choice—one evil, one noble—that leads to disastrous consequences. Oddly, my favorites both involve murder, death, and destruction.
Macbeth, William Shakespeare
Published in 2000, this novel about a married woman reconnecting with a man from her past is a gripping tale of desire, secrecy, murder, and betrayal. I love all of Miller’s books, but this one is probably the one that has stayed with me the most.
The classic private eye novel that has influenced so many mystery authors. It introduced me to grown-up mysteries after years as a Nancy Drew fan. Gosh, it’s good, and it has one of the best plot twists ever
