Lazy Sunday and my Sunday Read

Today has been a very very lazy day for me. I didn't get out of bed until 1pm...and I loved every moment of sleeping in. Since my kids are old enough (well my daughter is anyway) to fix their own food to eat, there was no rush to jump out of bed for anything. So I took full advantage of it.

So while on my way back home from vacationing in the Bahamas, we were on a long lay over in Chicago @ O'Hare Airport. We decided to stop in at the bookstore and grab some reads. I am kind of spoiled with buying ebooks, but the sight of all the books lined up brought back my fiendish need to BUY, BUY, BUY. So I did. There was a sale on mystery books.. buy one get the other either half off or free,  I cant remember. I purchased a book by an author that is unknown to me but the blurb on his book sounded very interesting.

The book is called Caught, by Harlan Corben. Have you heard of this guy before? Here is a blurb from his site and some words from the author himself:

Available Now in US & UK
From the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a fast-paced, emotion-packed novel about guilt, grief, and our capacity to forgive.

17 year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

Wendy Tynes is a reporter on a mission, to identify and bring down sexual predators via elaborate—and nationally televised—sting operations. Working with local police on her news program Caught in the Act, Wendy and her team have publicly shamed dozens of men by the time she encounters her latest target. Dan Mercer is a social worker known as a friend to troubled teens, but his story soon becomes more complicated than Wendy could have imagined.

In a novel that challenges as much as it thrills, filled with the astonishing tension and unseen suburban machinations that have become Coben’s trademark, Caught tells the story of a missing girl, the community stunned by her loss, the predator who may have taken her, and the reporter who suddenly realizes she can’t trust her own instincts about this case—or the motives of the people around her.

I know that most of you are romance readers, but this book so far is very good!
