Wow, this book is the kind of story that sticks with you for a long time. I read this in July, and it has continued to be a story that I think about! It’s emotional, heartbreaking, and surprising. It’s a page-turner, and you won’t be able to put it down!
After a fire breaks out on her family’s compound, Avery and her brother Cole escape. When they are captured by the police they learn that they were in a family who was part of a cult. As Avery tries to come to terms with who she is and who her family was, we watch her emotional, heartbreaking, and revealing discoveries.
I thought this was a pretty fast-paced story! It really starts off with a bang, and I couldn’t stop reading after that!
I really enjoyed the characters, and the situations. I enjoyed the location of the story in NY. It’s a bit gritty, which made it feel pretty darn real! I thought that the story was well-written, and quite captivating.
Okay, this book is a MUST READ for mystery/thriller/time travel readers!! This was such a fantastically written story. I could not stop reading, and I was incredibly invested in what was happening!
Jen’s son comes walking towards the house right at curfew when another man comes up behind him, and Jen watches as her son murders the man. After what quickly becomes the worst night of her life, she wakes up to discover that it is the day before the murder.
I know, I know! It’s crazy, but it’s the day before the murder, and she’s the only one that knows what is about to happen. She tries to figure out what led to the murder, but finds that when she wakes up the next morning…
Luck and Last Resorts is the second book in the series Love, Lists & Fancy Ships, which, of course, I didn’t know when I read it 🤦♀️ On the plus side, this can absolutely be read as a standalone, but I loved it so much, I’m definitely going back to read the first book!
This is a second chance romance told through present day and flashbacks where we learn about the various statuses of Nina and Ollie’s relationships. We get to flashback to when they first met, and to see how their love blossomed (and wilted).
I just loved this story. It’s a wonderful mix of romance, grief, ghosts of the past, and ghosts of the present.
Florence is a ghost writer for an extremely popular romance author, and very few people know. When a new editor arrives to meet with Florence, they don’t start off on the best foot. After a terrible meeting, and then a terrible night at the bar, she finds out her father has passed away and heads home. Where she finds a ghost, but it’s not the ghost of her dad…
So, this book was a great mix of magical realism and self-discovery, and I really enjoyed it! I loved traveling with Lolly to see what her life could have been as well as learning about what she truly wants and already has.
Wow! Okay, I was so enraptured by this story. This is a historical fiction, mystery, paranormal mash-up that I couldn’t put down! I loved that it was based on the life and death of a woman, and how the author took the historical information and created this whole fleshed out story!
My goodness, I just really enjoy Nikki Bryant! She’s such a great main character for this series, and I was so excited to get her back in the second book in this series!
The thing I love so much about cozy mysteries is that I get the murder and investigative aspect, but it’s a bit more light hearted and fun! Lauren Carr knows how to capture that balance perfectly! This plot was so much fun! I loved how the story unfolded and everything that happened along the way!
Two Roads to Paradise is the second book in the Be Careful What You Wish For series, and I was so excited to read it! Lucky for me, I was able to start it as soon as I finished book 1, The Way Out!
This book picks up a few years after the first book ends. I would recommend reading The Way Out before picking this one up, so you aren’t lost. Now that the world has stabilized the rebuilding of the human race, they have to turn their focus to rebuilding everything else. The story follows the characters from the first book as they set out on their individual adventures to help with this task.
This was such a fun story! It’s filled with science fiction, space and time travel, post-apocalyptic situations, and some political commentary!
I really enjoyed the characters, and the situations they were put into. When a space crew heads into space, they hit a black hole and end up back on earth 40 years in the future. Let me tell you…things are VERY different.
Ruth Ware is an auto-buy author for me. I absolutely love her writing and her stories! So, of course, I grabbed The It Girl as soon as I could!
So, this story follows Hannah as her past is brought back into her present. In college, Hannah’s roommate, April, was murdered, and Hannah was the one to find her😱, and identify the killer.
As Hannah navigates her first pregnancy and celebrates with her husband Will, who also used to be friends with April, Hannah gets news that April’s killer has died, but there are now questions around whether he really was the killer.
