Project Hail Mary

"Project Hail Mary" by Andy Weir is a fantastic read. The author has done the impossible: written a book that's even better than his previous bestseller "The Martian".

This novel has everything: the heart, the pace, the science, the unexpected yet perfect ending.

Whether you're into SF, think you might like to try an SF book, or are vehemently against SF, you should read it.

One Step Too Far

"One Step Too Far" by Lisa Gardner sees the return of Frankie Elkin, and that's really all you need to know before you rush out to buy a copy (or open a new tab to buy a copy, whatever your preference- mine is to get it in audio format and I can tell you, the performer does a good job). 

For those who need to know the plot, it's about finding people gone missing in the mountainous forests of the Popo Agie Wilderness in Wyoming. There is a bachelor party, secrets, and a delightful search dog called Daisy.

Still need more? Here's the official blurb:

Meet Frankie Elkin, an everyday, average person who specializes in finding missing people. When the locals have given up, when the media has never bothered to care, Frankie takes on the challenge. Her latest mission has brought her to Mattapan, Boston, to find a missing Haitian teen. Eleven months later, Angelique Badeau's disappearance remains a mystery. What happened to the quiet, studious teen? Frankie learns quickly the dangers of asking too many questions, but that won't stop her from learning the truth behind what happened before she disappeared.
