What I Read #1: The Exchange

Other than cooking all the southern goodies, I was a couch potato for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, and it was HEAVENLY to relax a bit after a busy holiday season. 

One of my favorite Christmas traditions in recent years has been the books and chocolate exchange started by one of my lovely sorority sisters. There are about 30 women in the group. There are a few fellow Sigma Kappas, but most of us don't know each other and are only connected through Allisa. Every year, she draws names to pair us up for our own little Jolabokaflod, and we give each other books and chocolate to enjoy during the holiday season. 

I received John's Grisham's The Exchange this year, and I was excited to see what happened to Mitch and Abby after they escaped The Firm. It was an engaging read and fun to revisit some memorable characters, but I kept waiting for a "bigger" conspiracy to emerge and thought the ending was a little bit of a letdown. I wouldn't put it up there with my favorites among his earlier novels, but it was a pleasant way to spend a relaxing day or so.
