Sons of Fortune
                                      
Author:  Jeffrey Archer

This one kept my attention! A set of fraternal twins are separated at birth. One baby was sent home with his birth mother, the other was sent home with a very wealthy, elite family.  Both twins grew up to be well known men, one for wealth, money and power, the other for intelligence and heroism.  The men tend to cross paths several times in the story, all the while not knowing they are twins. One of the twins happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and needs a lawyer to represent him. In this court battled case, one twin represents the other and the story progresses from there. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast-paced mystery. It kept me turning the pages.

                  The Mystery at Lilac Inn
                                              by Carolyn Keene

This book is about a girl named Nancy Drew who likes to solve mysteries. She visits her friend, Helen, at Lilac Inn. In this book, Nancy encounters some kind of an underwater creature and she almost drowns in a shipwreck. Nancy tries to solve the mystery of Helen's stolen necklace and she does some sneaky tricks to try to figure out who is behind the strange happenings at Lilac Inn.  What I really liked about this book was that it always kept me guessing, like who stole this or who did that.  One thing I didn't like about this book was that Nancy's friends, Bess and George weren't included in the story very much.  If you like uncovering clues and trying to figure out "who done it ", then you need to read this book.
