Though I’m still in Uruguay for the winter, I’m keeping tabs on everything, and I so appreciate you dropping me notes via Facebook or Instagram to let me know that you really like the cover of my next psychological thriller, BETWEEN TWO STRANGERS. I happen to love it myself. And I also really love the book as well. I try not to play favorites with my novels, but I became really invested in the main character in this one and the story, too. I can’t stop thinking about it even now, despite that fact that I’m in the midst of penning my 2024 thriller.

BETWEEN TWO STRANGERS is the pulse-pounding psychological thriller about a struggling artist named Skyler Moore who receives a bewilderingly large, life-changing inheritance from a man she spent a single night with twelve years ago—and she has no idea why. As Skyler digs for the truth, overwhelmed with a desire to understand the man’s motivation, it becomes clear that he might have taken other secrets to the grave, secrets that could have terrifying consequences for her.

What I’m Reading/Watching

The Lost Man of Bombay
By Vaseem Khan

Gosh, I was so in the mood this month for a good, unputdownable police procedural, a suspense novel that didn’t have a zillion bizarre twists, and I found it in The Lost Man of Bombay, an absolutely enchanting mystery with a captivating female heroine. This novel had me racing to my reading chair every day at 5:00 p.m.—and then lingering over each page to prolong the pleasure!

Slow Horses
Apple TV+

I don’t like spy or political thrillers as much as crime dramas, but when I find a good one, I’m hooked. For instance, I recently watched “The Night Manager” for the fourth time, and some of my other favorites include “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” and also “Bodyguard.” I checked out “Slow Horses” but gave up after fifteen minutes, but then tried again after hearing so many friends rave about it. This time I adored the series. Starring, Gary Oldman, (the gorgeous) Jack Lowden, and Kristin Scott Thomas, it’s about a group of spies who are forced to work together in London’s Slough House (how they get the nickname slow horses) because they’ve all committed a whopper of a mistake and are considered losers by their former colleagues in MI6. But of course, they always end up saving the day. And I liked season two even better than season one.

What I’m Making

There are many variations of watermelon and cheese salad in the U.S., but I ended up having one here in Uruguay at the restaurant Mata Ojo, which I loved for its simplicity, and since they were nice enough to give me the recipe, I served it for lunch last week: cubed melon, blue cheese, salt, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and a touch of lemon juice. I added a little mint! After making it a few times, I decided I like it better without lemon. (The legendary chef Jean Georges dresses his only with extra virgin olive oil, but it’s really up to you. Some people enjoy it with balsamic vinegar.)

Enjoy the rest of the winter, and please stay in touch. I love hearing from you!
