Some books to mention

Shameless book pushing (ok, nudging)

Picture the Dead by Adele Griffin and Lisa Brown

From Goodreads:

Jennie feels the tingling presence of something unnatural in the house now that Will is dead.

Her heart aches without him, and she still doesn't know how he really died. It seems that everywhere she turns, someone is hiding yet another clue. As Jennie seeks the truth, she finds herself drawn ever deeper into a series of tricks and lies, secrets and betrayals, and begins to wonder if she had every really known Will at all.

Do you remember the massive amounts of love I have for this book? So I couldn't not mention the release of the paperback. I'm totally in love with the new cover! It shows off Lisa Brown's illustrations so much better than the old cover.

The Stuttering Tattoo by Greg Logsted

Product Description:

Steven Bishop is extraordinarily ordinary. He goes to school. He rides his motorcycle. He stutters. His best friend is a former Colombian cartel hit man turned cook/construction worker. You know, ordinary. All that changes the day Becky Moore walks into his classroom. Becky is dazzling, enigmatic.

One day Steven gives Becky a ride home on his motorcycle. There, they discover a severed arm, one of the fingers of which still has an unusual ring attached: a circle, in the middle of which is a heart, at the center of which is a bold number 37. While comforting Becky, Steven discovers a tattoo at the base of her neck: it is the same symbol. And so begins a thrilling descent into a world of crime and murder, a ride wilder than any Steven has taken before.

I haven't read any of Greg Logsted's books yet, but I adore his wife's books (that would be Lauren Baratz Logsted). The plot sounds exciting! What is up with that symbol??

Have you read either of these books? What were your thoughts?
Will you be adding either to your TBR?
