When Anna, a missing persons detective, returns to her small hometown after a personal tragedy, she finds herself wrapped up in the search for a recently missing teenage local—a case that may even be similar to an unsolved murder from Anna‘s childhood…

With a strong arc for its protag coupled with several mysteries all playing out at once—each of them intriguing on their own—this well-crafted tale is disturbingly detailed and thoroughly engaging.

#12BooksOf2022 @Andrew65

I'm far behind so here's a mega-post for the second half of the year.
July was the toughest month to choose because a couple other books were good. The Traveling Cat Chronicles made be ugly cry.
A Bear Called Paddington might be the best book I read this year.
Madam wins December only because I felt underwhelmed by all of the ones I read.

Andrew65 Thanks for playing along. Paddington is one of my favourite books, also brings back memories of my childhood. 13mo
Susanita The Travelling Cat Chronicles also made me 😭 13mo
Ruthiella The Pisces was so weird and also pretty sad, but I also loved it. 13mo

My final selection for #12booksof2022. This was a library #bookclub pick and despite my reservations about the book, I quite enjoyed it. My favourite chapters were the ones on Florence and the two chapters set in Vienna. My only complaint was that the chapter on Athens was much too long for my liking.

Andrew65 Excellent. Thanks for playing along. 13mo

When I went on my beach vacation back in early November, I had packed three Emily Henry books with, but decided to leave behind two of them (I know realize that I should have left two others behind instead). I ended up taking this one along with me and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I had heard so many good things about the book that I thought it was too overhyped. Boy was I wrong; a very good romance book that didn‘t get cheesy. #12booksof2022

#12Booksof2022 - day 12

I almost forgot to post my favorite read from December. I loved reading Austen‘s letters, especially those to her sister Cassandra. This is a treat for every Austen fan.

I would also mention “Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron”, a graphic novel that surprised me in a positive way.

Andrew65 A brilliant choice. Thanks for playing along, its been a great way to review our Reading year.

#12booksof2022 Father & son try to survive in a post apocalyptic world .Such a dark , powerful read . so my 12 days of Christmas Booklist now done , this was the book for December. I was blessed in December, in a sense, a three tie.”Joan is Okay “by Weike Wang & “Mrs.Palfrey at The Claremont “ by Elizabeth Taylor were brilliant!

Andrew65 An excellent choice. Thanks for playing along, it‘s been a great way to review the year of reading. 14mo
