A Flicker in the Dark | Stacy Willingham

Chloe‘s father is doing time in prison, accused of six murders. Twenty years later, other girls are missing using the same method as her father used in the murders. A copycat maybe? More than one suspect. I suspected of that character but then I focused on another character. The end was maybe predictable but for me was an interesting twist. The author urgently needs accurate information about forensic psychology as a profession😳🤦🏽‍♀️3.8⭐️

The Woman in the Library | Sulari Gentill

Mehso-so

I have mixed feelings with this one. I liked and enjoyed very much the way the story was developed, narrated. A book story within a book story. I liked how Freddie describes the idea to develop her characters and the story. While she is in the library, she observes 3 peoples, their actions, physical appearances and a story is developed. Then, all of them will be connected for the sound of a scream and the story will start from there.⬇️

Gissy Which story will start after the scream? I think this idea was so great. I liked the mystery, how the events were intertwined and how I suspected from each character. However, I think that the last part of the story was a little bit rushed and abrupt. 3.5⭐️I had a hunch about that particular character. But I still liked how Freddie developed the story. I think writers use that method, they must see actions and behaviors from another perspective. 5mo

Another thriller that I really enjoyed. A boarding school with an elite group of students with cuestionable morale. Family drama with a disappearance of a family member, a suicide, betrayals and a murder. Is everything connected? Who is lying? What would you do just to keep your image and power? Is everything related with this elite group? It was a fast read. I couldn‘t put it down. A particular situation was so unrealistic to me. 3.8/4⭐️

Gissy I finished this one this week for June 2022 #Buzzword (all) @Booksandlala YouTuber

In this Teashop some people will share tea, with desserts and something else, companion, reading club. A friendship will start among these neighbors. Everyone has a story and a secret that they will share and support. A place for second chances. It was a fast read, maybe predictable but cute. I enjoyed it. 3⭐️

2nd book in this series. Anouk has a little antique shop and even though the story is in Paris, the story and characters are similar of what we see in cozy mysteries where it usually happens in small towns. Not murder here but Anouk will be involved in some jewelry robberies. Situation and characters are silly and story can be described as meh but I read it after a thriller, needed something silly and funny. But it should be described so-so 3⭐️

I read it physically and in audio. Loved to listen the accent because is part of the region, culture, and identity. I think Eilis immigration in general was more manageable in comparison to other people, she had a job and persons that supported her. She even had some money when she left her country. But she questioned some of her decisions which would changed her life. There are some sad parts. Liked the story and author‘s writing style. 3.5/3.8⭐️

Gissy Loved the cover😍The bookmark was another gift from another friend when they visited Ireland after 2021 London marathon.

Mix feelings with this novel. There are three different stories that are interconnected as a way to explain the creation of Liberia. I loved the story and the beautiful writing style narrated by the author who has a pleasant, soft voice and was amazing to understand each character. Love Gbessa, the witch. But the use of magical realism in the story in my opinion took some beauty away from the story, was like reading a superhero story😬3.75/3.8⭐️

Gissy I have to admit that magical realism not always works for me😳 Love that cover😍
