Just yesterday I was lamenting the fact that I none of the books I‘m currently reading have fully captured my attention. I obviously have just not been reading the right book! This is a buddy read with the #literarycrew that I started this morning. I love it! I‘m already on part two.

PS @LeahBergen I‘m drinking Tealish chocolate strawberry black tea. It‘s one of the few flavoured teas that I enjoy. It‘s delish 😋

LauraAndTaraAndBooks Yay! So glad you've found something that's taken your fancy 🤗 5d
LeahBergen That sounds tasty! Is Tealish an online company? 🤔 5d
sprainedbrain I LOVED this book. ❤️ 5d

Melissa_J @LeahBergen it is! Plus it‘s Canadian. They used to sell some of their teas at Chapters, which is how I came to discover this one. 5d
Melissa_J @sprainedbrain I really wish the whole trilogy was already available. Apparently book two is out next summer. 5d
Mollyanna I started it this morning too, and had things to do or I would probably be into part 2 as well. 5d
Librarybelle @Melissa_J @Mollyanna So glad it‘s good so far! I had a last minute request from my work place to help at an event today, so I couldn‘t start it today! Maybe tonight... 5d
Melissa_J @Librarybelle @Mollyanna it‘s so good! I only have one chapter left in part 2! 5d

Oh wow! This was wonderful, atmospheric and truly engaging. Usually with dual timelines I rush through one timeline just to get back to the one I enjoy more. That was not the case with this book. Both timelines were so well written and plotted. Willig‘s writing is so lyrical. I even read her acknowledgements 😉. Another great pick for #literarycrew buddy read.

Librarybelle Yay!! 2w

My #ReadingGoals for September are to read more books related to my challenges. In addition, #agathachristieclubr2 is starting this month, and I‘ll have a #LiteraryCrew #buddyread starting later this month. And, I hope to join the #botmbuddyread this month, as I‘ve wanted to read Evelyn Hugo. Will I stick to the plan? Probably not. #SebastianKitty is skeptical about it. He‘s also upset he can‘t lay on my papers. #SelfImprovementSept #catsoflitsy

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I hope you can join us!!! 💚💚💚 3w

Today is the last day for the #LiteraryCrew ‘s #buddyread of the tagged book. If you‘re still reading...no worries! Please feel free to post any thoughts after you have finished the book.

Any final thoughts on the book? Did you enjoy the book? My big question for everyone - what did you think about the romantic elements in the book? Don‘t forget to put any spoilers under the spoiler tag!

Stayed tuned tomorrow, when the next schedule is posted!

Librarybelle I loved this book! I think it edged out The Ashford Affair as my favorite of Willig‘s, and I really loved that one. I was so impressed with all of the research Willig did for this novel and the historical note section after the novel. The characters were so lively and believable, and I couldn‘t help but be heartbroken over Charles and Jenny. But, the ending...so filled with hope and such a sweet ending. I was so happy for them! 3w
Crazeedi Toward the end, I sort of knew who Emily was, since her grandfather willed the place to her. Definitely well written , I dont know that I've read any other Willig book, only the ones shes written in concert with William's and someone else(name eludes me). I totally enjoyed how she went back and forth in time , that was well done too, not confusing. 3w
Librarybelle @Crazeedi She does do the timelines well. I had a thought who Emily was by the end too, but I was pleased to see that Jenny survived. I wasn‘t sure about that piece of it. I think Willig and Williams write with Karen White; I‘ve read most of those and like them too. 3w

Crazeedi @Librarybelle yes that's the other author, (old age is an issue, lol!) 3w
Jerdencon I think I kinda figured out who Emily was midway through. The romantic stuff was ok - not over the top which I don‘t enjoy. 3w
Jerdencon I really liked this book - but I enjoy historical fiction and this was right up my alley. Would love to visit Bermuda knowing some of the history now. (edited) 3w
Librarybelle @Jerdencon It makes me want to see the island, too, and I‘m not a fan of hot weather! Haha! 3w
kspenmoll I too loved the history of Bermuda & enjoyed the book- racial issues made real- (edited) 3w

So, #LiteraryCrew , I had to finish the #buddyread today. I couldn't help myself!

I adore Willig's writing, and I think this one nudges The Ashford Affair out of the top spot of my favorite of hers. It's rich in storytelling, with compelling characters, a building climax, and a satisfying conclusion. I had received an ARC through #NetGalley of this, but also had to purchase a copy to keep. It's so good!

We'll wrap up discussion Saturday!

Tamra I will definitely get to this one! 4w
Crazeedi That sounds great! Look forward to discussing 4w
