“Robert B Parker’s Blood Feud” by Mike Lupica.

When Richie is shot and nearly killed, Sunny is dragged into the thick of his family’s business as she searches for answers and tries to stave off a mob war. But as the bullets start flying in Boston’s mean streets, Sunny finds herself targeted by the deranged mastermind of the plot against the Burke family, whose motive may be far more personal than she could have anticipated.
“Then She Was Gone” by Lisa Jewell. Fifteen year old Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter, beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. Just days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her, she suddenly disappeared. Ten years later, her mother, Laurel, meets an unexpectedly charming man in a cafe, and their flirtation quickly develops into something deeper. When she meets Floyd’s daughters, his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away. Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. The unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? And who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of Ellie?
