Seattle Kitchen's Katie O recommends "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn

Katie O writes ... "Gone Girl" is the epitome of a beach read and has been the book du jour on many best-selling lists for good reason. Never has getting sucked into another couple's dysfunction been so enjoyable! My only suggestion: If you really do take this on a beach vacation, bring another book because you'll gobble this one up so fast, you may be left with nothing to read for 90 percent of your trip.
