These Toxic Things
These Toxic Things: A Thriller | Rachel Howzell Hall
12 posts | 12 read | 16 to read
A dead woman's cherished trinkets become pieces to a terrifying puzzle. Mickie Lambert creates "digital scrapbooks" for clients, ensuring that precious souvenirs aren't forgotten or lost. When her latest client, Nadia Denham, a curio shop owner, dies from an apparent suicide, Mickie honors the old woman's last wish and begins curating her peculiar objets d'art. A music box, a hair clip, a key chain--twelve mementos in all that must have meant so much to Nadia, who collected them on her flea market scavenges across the country. But these tokens mean a lot to someone else, too. Mickie has been receiving threatening messages to leave Nadia's past alone. It's becoming a mystery Mickie is driven to solve. Who once owned these odd treasures? How did Nadia really come to possess them? Discovering the truth means crossing paths with a long-dormant serial killer and navigating the secrets of a sinister past. One that might, Mickie fears, be inescapably entwined with her own.

(2021) When her client dies, a creator of digital scrapbooks gets involved in a twisty plot involving secrets and murder. It's okay; some of the story logic was a little stretchy for me, but that comes with the genre I guess.

This was my #DoubleSpin read for February.

Some annoying things in this mystery, but it was entertaining enough and kept me reading to find out what happened

How many lackluster books can one read in a row? I'm hoping the answer is "four" and that the next book I read will be wonderful. Please! ???

A digital scrapbooker is hired to compile a collection for a woman losing her memory to Alzheimer's disease. The woman dies, but the scrapbooker proceeds - and stumbles upon a disturbing pattern. I thought the premise of this book was great. The execution was good, but there was too much going on in it. Plenty of red herrings. The MC was kind of a princess but the author did try to evolve her character & show growth over the course of the story.

This is possibly the most unsettling book I‘ve ever read…and I read a lot of thrillers! Mickie is a digital archaeologist who creates “Memory Banks” for those who want more than just a scrapbook. When Nadia hires her at her eclectic store of collectibles and then ends up dead, things just get dicey and the action never wanes! Twisted but oh so satisfying!
