Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye. This week, three that appeared on 2020 ‘best of’ lists.
Olive by Emma Gannon
Summary: When friends’ lives start to branch towards marriage and motherhood, Olive knows there’s something different ahead for her.
I’m thinking: No (it’s a style thing).
Monogamy by Sue Miller
Graham and Annie have been married for thirty years. When Graham suddenly dies Annie is lost. Then, while she is mourning, she discovers a ruinous secret, one that will force her to question whether she ever truly knew the man who loved her.
I’m thinking: Yes (also a style thing – instantly hooked).
The Flight by Julie Clark
Summary: A chance meeting at an airport prompts two women, both wanting to escape their lives, to switch tickets. They believe the swap will give each of them the head start they need to begin again somewhere far away. One plane crashes.
I’m thinking: Maybe (it might be my thriller pick for 2021).
