I would read this book to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. This is a great chapter book for younger elementary kids to read when starting to read chapter books. The students get to learn about the difficulties during world war II at an early age.

This is a historical fiction chapter book. This book was written about 1945 when world war II was happening. I think the story conveys the times and what happened during that day perfectly. It shows how people from different cultures are not treated right and how different genders are not treated right. This book defiantly gets the spirit across of the time period.

I should have read this series in order. When I read The Proposal back when it was Reese's Book Club choice, I found it kinda Meh. I really liked this first one in the series. Would probably like 2nd one more having seen Carlos as the friend, now I want to see him as hero. Yes this one had that angsty bit where you just want to yell at characters 'JUST SAY WHAT YOU FEEL'! But worth it for a good happy ending. 💑

Crinoline_Laphroaig Looking forward to reading next in the series and Christmas one. It was synopsis of Royal Holiday(Christmas Romance in London, with characters of a certain age) that made me take a second chance on this series. I now see why so many people like it. 3d
cleoh These covers look so good together 😍 3d
Crinoline_Laphroaig @cleoh I love this style of cover! 3d

emmaturi I hadn't realised this was a series! I also wasn't too impressed with The Prosposal. Which is the first one? 3d
Crinoline_Laphroaig @emmaturi 1- The Wedding Date 2 - The Proposal 3 - The Wedding Party 4 - Royal Holiday 3d
TheBookStacker I‘ve read all of them in order and the proposal is still my least favorite. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 3d
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookStacker At this point I can't even remember the end of The Proposal. My Library has it, so I'm gonna skim through it while waiting on hold of Wedding Party. 3d
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookStacker Library Hold is way long. Worth buying? 3d
TheBookStacker I burned through Royal Holiday on a 4 hour plane ride so I‘d say yes. But I‘m biased because I love all holiday type books. 3d
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookStacker LOVE Holiday books! Right now looking for a good Thanksgiving story. 3d

I really enjoyed the beginning but I found myself rushing/skimming part 2 of the book so I can get to the ending of who the killer was and how he was identified (in the Appendix). The appendix was disappointing. But I absolutely loved Michelle's "Letter to an Old Man" at the end of the book. She wrote it before the killer was caught. It was creepy, poetic, and optimistic. I loved how the main book read like a fiction novel. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.5 STARS).

MrBook Great review! 3d
LoverOfLearning @MrBook thank you. 3d

This is how it ends for you. You'll be silent and I'll be gone in the dark. Open the door. Show us your face. Walk into the light.

2. There was no reply; she heard no footsteps. A vehicle never started up. She never knew how or when he left; just that at some point he did.

My goal is to finish this book this weekend. About 60% done and just starting part 2! Who else has read this book?

BarbaraBB Yes! It‘s scary 😱 4d
Cathythoughts Me 🙋🏼‍♀️.... it‘s awfully scary ! But so well written ! I loved it 4d
LoverOfLearning @Cathythoughts Yes, the beginning freaked me out a little. I do like how it's a mix of the victims stories with the authors story. Makes it a different read then most books about serial killers. 4d
DrexEdit I have! Part two is less polished, of course, but still good. This is an amazing bit of detective work and really well written! (edited) 4d
LoverOfLearning @DrexEdit Its so intriguing to me because I'm going to school for forensic psychology and I would love to be a private investigator one day. So this and books like it are right up my alley because she was determined. I wish she would have been able to see the real killer get captured. I'm sure she would have cried tears of joy. 4d

Even when you're trying to watch your weight, count your calories, get 10k steps in in a day. When you're showered and relaxing on the couch.... sometimes nothing beats a glass of your favorite beer. I'm enjoying this without feeling guilty and snuggling up to finish this book. Cheers to the majority of the week being behind us. 🍻🍺
