The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld
Contemporary novel, women's fiction.
This is the story of a woman escaping an abusive marriage and re-inventing herself in a small town in Brittany, France. Her plans to commit suicide are waylaid by the kindness of the people in the town where she finds herself, by the ocean, and the bistro where she finds employment.
Livia Lone #1 by Barry Eisler, October 25, 2016, Thomas and Mercer.
Thriller, crime novel.
I have enjoyed the John Rain thrillers by Eisler and was interested to see he has started a new series, featuring a judo expert and Seattle cop, Livia Lone. Livia was kidnapped as a child from a hilltribe village in Thailand, brought to the U.S., and adopted by a senator. This is her story of escape from horrific abuse, becoming a judo expert, and later joining law enforcement in order to stop human trafficking.
A revealing and intriguing story, but be prepared for some graphic violence.
I rated this 4.5 stars.

I will be doing a book tour for the publisher mid September. Watch for a review then.
Our weather has changed a bit and the temps are down. I am missing the warmer sunny days already, but I feel so sorry for those living on the Texas coast.
