W is for What I Read in April

This month I read three books. 

Dodie Smith, author of 101 Dalmations wrote this charming story of a slightly quirky English family living in an old castle.  Written in the voice of 17-year-old Cassandra, it's a coming-of-age-and-falling-in-love story.  Fun to read.

A best-seller in its day, this story of a serial killer with an enhanced sense of smell absolutely grossed me out.  I finished it because it was a book club read but I don't recommend it.

This fairly new release was a page-turner.  The story of an assistant DA whose son is accused of murdering his classmate has all the ingredients of a best seller--a crime, a trial, twists and turns.  Highly recommended.

If you've read any books you'd like to recommend, please add them in the Comment section.  I'm always on the lookout for new reads.

What a neat idea for W. Congrats! I added 2 of your books to my TBR list and can recommend one for you: THE COOKBOOK COLLECTOR by Allegra Goodman, a story about sisters and set in Silicon Valley.
