The Flower Arranger by J.J. Ellis

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My Thoughts:

What I Loved: The setting of this book was in Japan and covered a variety of locations. The writing really took me to each of these places and made me appreciate each one’s beauty.

How I Felt: I loved this book. It was fast-paced with a lot of action to keep my attention all the way through. The beginning of the book was a bit of a struggle as there are a lot of Japanese words thrown in right at the start and, not knowing what they meant, I struggled. I finally just realized that I didn’t need to know what they meant, context would help me, or I could look them up. And after that, it wasn’t an issue for me anymore. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I was interested in the characters and their part in the plot, and I was invested in the story.

To Read or Not To Read: If you enjoy action-packed crime fiction and thrillers, this is a good book for you! It’s a murder-mystery focused on a serial killer that must be stopped.

What’s This Book About Anyway?
