I thought Dead Reckoning was alright -- I've noticed sometimes her books seem to set the scene more for the next one, like a sort of transition story as opposed to a standalone.

I'm not reading anything right now, I'll have to sort that out soon.

A gathering light..by jenifer donnerlly
at first i thought i would not get though many pages the book wasn't, i thought my cup of tea but by the end i enjoyed it

the second is ken follets pillers of the earth
didn't get past the first ten pages...glad i brought it from the charity shop they at least gained from the book and they are getting it back to resell

the third was danielle steels zoya

I have just finished Dawn French's book 'A Tiny Bit Marvellous'.  Mixed feelings on this one. It's written in diary format from the points of view of three of the main family members.  Some good, funny stuff in there but I felt that some of the characters could have been fleshed out a bit more.
 
Currently re-reading 'Liverpool Miss', by Helen Forrester.  Last read this in the 80's and thought it was worth another thumbing.
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

I am reading a non-fiction book "How the Girl Guides Won the War", in reference to WWII. I was a Brownie and Girl Guide, but never imagined that the skills developed as a GG could ever be used in the way described in the book. The GGs in Poland and the GGs during the blitz in London - inspiring and brave.

I have just finished reading Ken Follett's 'Fall of Giants' I love all his books , it was another book of his about 800 pages long!! set with a war background Poland/US/England/Germany /Austria etc.....so had a lot of fact in it too.
Read it on holiday in about 3 days, but now passed it on to someone.
 
Have read quite a bit of Lee Child's Jack Reacher's just finished 'The affair ' recently, and just picked up 'The Killing Floor' from my local charity shop, along with a 'lighter' Santa Montefiore, which i can't remember if I've read or not (did read all her books a few years back)- 'The Swallow and the Hummingbird'.
 
Picked up some great 50p books too from School Fayre, a month ago, including Barack Obama's , -Dreams from my father' , Sue Townsend's  'Queen Camilla, and 'The sixth wife' by Suzana Dunn (Henry VIII era), not sure when I'll get chance to read them tho, house in a bit of chaos, and seems to be more to do when kids off school!!!! (maybe during long cricket matches next week)

I've just read 'The Affair' which is his last book written i think?? but precedes all of them?? (bit like Star Wars films, go further back in time!!),
 in it , he's (Reacher) is still in the army as a MP, I think it's just before he gets out.
Have just bought Killing Floor, which may have been the first I think from after he just left??
 
edit
I haven't read them in any particular order, just whatever order i find them in the local charity shops!!! so jump about all over the place.
I'm still annoyed Tom Cruise played him in the film recently, which was based on 'One Shot'
I did like the one (mostly)set in Norfolk too, (The hard way?) it's bleak winter descriptions made me laugh!!
