My 1st Super Series Sunday pick is Things We Never Got Over, the first book in the Knockemout series by Lucy Score. Bearded bad boy Knox prefers to be alone with his basset hound. He doesn't tolerate drama until a stranded runaway bride named Naomi blows into town to rescue her estranged twin. Tricked by the evil twin, Tina steals Naomi's car and cash, leaving her with an 11-year-old niece Naomi didn't know she had. Not liking drama, Knox helps Naomi so he can return to a peaceful life. I have never heard of this author before browsing through Kindle Unlimited library. It has over 145,000 ratings with an average of 4⭐️ so I downloaded. Best impulse read ever! Almost 600 pages of goodness read in 3 days! I am in love with the characters, the author's writing style and the grown chick lit story. This novel is the literary version of the heart eyes emoji with all the feels it gives readers! 😍
My 2nd Super Series Sunday pick is Death by Dumpling, the first book in the Noodle Shop series by Vivien Chien. Yes, I am reading out of order! This is the beginning of the Ho-Lee Noodle House, where the Chinese food is literally to die for. The restaurant's property manager, Mr. Feng, turns up dead after a delivery of dumplings. Now the whole family restaurant is under suspicion for murder. It is a funny cozy mystery that pairs well with Chinese takeout and a weekend inside.
My 3rd Super Series Sunday pick is Family of Liars, the prequel to We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. We are back to another summer, another generation, more secrets that will haunt for decades to come. Put testosterone, entitlement, cold beer and an addicted heiress together and it's one helluva twisted story that I could not put down. I read nonstop, frantically turning the ePages! This novel proves the ocean is hungry and when it comes to the Sinclair family, they were clearly always liars.
My 4th Super Series Sunday pick is Shattered, the 14th book in the Detective Michael Bennett series by James Patterson and James O. Born. NYPD homicide investigator Michael Bennett and top FBI abduction specialist Emily Parker have a history. So when she is found strangled, Bennett leaves his new bride and familiar family chaos to find the killer. There was nothing thrilling about this latest book of the series. It was as if the authors had a contractual obligation to fill and just turned in anything. Do better for Bennett!
