Why does trouble always ensue when you go back to your hometown?! This one dragged on a bit but threw some unexpected twists I didnt see coming. Murder has occurred in Evelyn Bay and it drags up a whole lot of past for Kieran and the town.

I‘ve never read 200 books in one year. Never. It‘s been my GR goal for the past three years. In 2019 I almost made it, with 197 books. Last year I was close again, at 194. 2021 started off abysmally with a case of covid and a short-lived reading slump. I remember as the year started, I was feeling so sick and defeated. But here I am on 10/8 having finally met my goal! 🥳🥳🥳

Can Jane Harper do any wrong? I didn't love this quite as much as The Lost Man but her damaged characters and focus on their natural environment is still so good.

I've liked all of Harper's books so far, but this might be one of my favorites. She sets up the mystery so almost every character looks suspicious, and you're also never completely sure who you hope is innocent. She also does a great job in this book of making the setting feel almost like another character. The ending felt slightly abrupt, but I did like how she wrote the reveal of the murderer.

A pick although bordering on so-so. Probably my least favourite of her books so far. Kieran and girlfriend Mia are back in their hometown helping his mom prepare to move out of her home due to her husband‘s rapidly advancing dementia. Of course, Kieran feels immense guilt about an unspoken of until a few chapters in mysterious accident and then there‘s also a disappearance. It‘s a mystery potpourri. Bring back Aaron Falk!!

TNbookworm Yes! Great review👍 6mo

I finished this at Six Flags while waiting for my kids who were riding the roller coasters. While this was not my favorite of Harper‘s books, it was still a good read set in a beach town in Tasmania. She always does a great job in bringing a strong sense of place to her works which I appreciate.

I‘m surprised by the mixed reviews on this. I found the characters engaging and the plot well executed. The end was a bit abrupt but closed the key character development and plot lines well. I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes a good mystery, and I will pick up more of harpers work.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3.5/5)

I was going to give “The Survivors” at least four stars, but overall I found myself disappointed with this read. This book had a decent plot and two different mysteries involved, but had slow pacing and a sub-par plot twist/reveal that ended abruptly. It needed at least another chapter or an epilogue, which made for an unsatisfactory ending.

So far, 2021 has been a year of failed high hopes...here's yet one off my "most anticipated" list that was a huge letdown ?

For me, this was an example of a "slow burn" that was NOT done right. The the plot was way too boring and the atmosphere was not well developed--not a good mix. I did like the characters, but they couldn't redeem this for me. I normally love Jane Harper's books, but this wasn't worth it.

I really liked the build up and how the stories came together. I do feel like the ending was a let down and I needed more to see what the consequences would be and what the others would have thought.

Book 46 Jane Harper's settings are typically not only integral to her stories but also powerfully-written. This was not the case with Evelyn Bay, Tasmania. The story was slow and only became engaging near the end. The characters lacked dimension. I expected more from The Survivors. ⭐⭐⭐

Jane Harper writes the most clever mysteries. Her mysteries never feel formulaic or predictable. Just like her other novels this one kept me hooked from the first chapter. Loved it!

Another good novel from Jane Harper. This time set in Tasmania, Kieran returns to his home town with his girlfriend and baby. A body is found on the beach and the town is awash with gossiup. Kieran has a past which still has consequences to this day. Secrets that were hidden now will come to light. I like her stand alone books but would like another Aaron Falk too.

Another good one from Jane Harper. Her writing is so atmospheric, the place is always a character and this one is no different. A slow burn, building and building never letting you guess what‘s coming. I‘ve done all her books on audio and they are great that way, the narrator, Stephen Shanahan does a fantastic job

The pounding surf, cold water, and cave-riddled cliffs are not just the setting of this novel set in a coastal village in Tasmania: they are integral to the story itself. Grief and guilt are explored in this rewarding, twisty, character-based mystery. #Audiobook read by Stephen Shanahan. #Ozfiction

I felt as if the ending was left unfinished. I think the author should have had the help arrive and Kieran tell what happened. That way the truth came out and the families could all get closure on what really happened that night of the big storm and what really happened to Bronte.
Other wise, I thought that the story was a delightful and quick read. Was a perfect fit for the thunderstorms and cloudy days I have had here where I live!

A reading picnic! Something for everyone to read (and eat — chocolate covered strawberries 🍓🍫)
Jane Harper is an auto read for me, always on audiobook. The Australian narrator is pure perfection to set the tone and atmosphere of the book. Two young women are murdered, 12 years apart. Kieran returns home and becomes entangled in solving both of the mysteries and in doing so, dregs up memories from his — and the town‘s past. Cont. ⬇️

Chelsea.Poole ⬆️ (from above) glad to have the physical book to follow along with to keep track of the characters and relationships between them. I was a bit put off at the beginning until I got a good hold on who was who. 10mo

This one pulled me in slowly, like the tide creeping up without my notice. A man returns to his childhood home in Tasmania despite heartbreaking memories. There‘s so much grief & blame in the town. Harper manages to create a whodunnit without it ever feeling that way. There are possible suspects and red herrings, but it‘s always about the characters. It reminds me so much of the BBC show Broadchurch. Harper has become a must-read author for me.

I can‘t think of anyone who writes scenery as well as Jane Harper does. This was an enthralling read. It didn‘t grab me quite as quickly as The Dry but it didn‘t take long. I love Harper layered the events of the past into the mystery of today, creating these deeply complicated characters.

Book 3/5 for #MarvellousMarch

Kieran returns to the place he grew up, the place where the tragedy he can't forget about happened 12 years earlier. While helping his mom close her home and care for his father with dementia, another tragedy occurs. The tightly knit community speculates on what happened then and now, and Kieran comes to term with it all. Another good read by this author

Jane Harper tells a very good story. I didn't like this quite as much as The Lost Man but it's as good as The Dry IMO. The charactors, even minor ones, were well drawn, the town was so clearly described I felt like I was there, and the story kept me riveted from the first page. She's definitely an auto buy for me.

I really wanted to love this book because it‘s Jane Harper, but this one fell flat for me compared to her other books. It‘s slower paced and not much happens for a lot of the books. Some characters motives aren‘t made clear. When the “whodunnit” is revealed it didn‘t make sense to me why that person felt the need to kill. It was an abrupt ending and what happened to the rest of the characters wasn‘t revealed. It struck me as an odd place to end.
