It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Life right now!

Fingers crossed, yesterday was the last really cold day as temperatures are due to begin rising slightly this coming week. With above freezing temperatures forecast, the thaw will begin, although it will be mid-late April before we are completely snow-free. However, the current weather front is bringing lots of sunshine, so that is good for the soul. It's the last week of school for my son before the Easter break and with a school play running this week, our days will be less stressful as there is no homework. The garden is only accessible on skis, so it was a creative trip to feed the birds. Reading is a little slow right now, but I've managed two books this week. 

What am I currently reading?

Murder Notes (arc) by Lisa Renee Jones

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.

Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

Thoughts so far...

I've fallen into a trap where I finish a book on a Sunday and barely past the first chapter on a Monday morning. Today is one of those days! So far, I'm drawn into the narrative and as I've read books by this author before, I feel confident this will fall into a 4-5 star category. 
The majority of books I've read this year have been Romantic Suspense and I'm loving the diversity of this genre. Each one has felt very different from the last, unlike many contemporary romances I've read. 

What's next on my reading list?
