Looking For Something Good To Read?

I'm going to deviate a bit from my usual posts......
....this is my very eclectic blog.
Since I'm retired and often don't have a lot of energy and love to read that's what I have been doing. 
Here is what I have been reading lately.
I have always loved reading.

 This one is about a man who moves his family to the other side of the country....why? One day the father finds his teenage son murdered in their home. The mother takes it very hard and her life falls apart. But what happens when she communicates with her son's murderer is surprising. 
 The beach house is owned by a woman who just can't afford to keep it up, as a last resort she opens her doors to strangers. This is the story of what happens to the people who stay. I enjoyed it.
 I just finished this book and highly recommend it! A reporter finds a flyer in her mailbox with photos of missing children and one of them looks just like her son. She risks her life and job to find out if it is her son.
This is a true story of a young woman who grew up in Saudi Arabia in the 1970s, she is a princess but that is not how she is treated. It is very insightful about the young women's lives at that time.
