Patty will read almost anything, fiction or nonfiction, but she loves a good, gritty mystery! As Stephen King says, “Sometimes you read for the story, sometimes you read for the words.” She loves a beautifully written literary story, but she will then jump into an Appalachian or Ozark dark tale. She loves a good memoir, but then she'll dive into a Scandinavian noir thriller. Let Patty create a book list for you based on what you like!
