When my mom was alive, she couldn't wait for the next Dean Koontz book to come out, and I wasn't really into that kind of reading.
Recently I've read 2 of his books, and am working on a 3rd.
The way he writes is so very descriptive, and the novels are so intense.
Velocity, The Husband, and I'm working on Intensity
Also, this other book I picked up is called Missing Mom, it's kind of a 'self-help' kind of book. It's about a young woman who loses her mother (is is quite young herself) and how she never dealt with her mothers death until several years later. (which is the same thing i'm going thru now)
