The Hollows: A Novel | Jess Montgomery

Pickpick

Wonderful sequel to The Widows!!

I LOVE Sheriff Lily Ross and the group of women that help her manage her family, her home, and her job: her mother and two best friends. They‘re strong, independent women that are true to their time. Just wonderful.

Thank you #MinotaurBooks for the review copy!

I reread The Widows in preparation for The Hollows (Kinship Series #2). I love that Lily and Marvena overcame such an awkward beginning in their relationship and that they had the courage to seek out justice for their families and their community. I particularly loved their daughters‘ friendship and the wisdom of the elder women in rural Ohio. Lily is Ohio‘s first female sheriff.

(Thanks to #MinotaurBooks for sending these review copies my way!)

theladygreer I loved The Hollows! (My name is probably on it somewhere.) 3w

Characters are the strong point of this 1st book in a new series. They are complicated, realistic, and sometimes unlikeable but still sympathetic. The first half of the book moved too slowly for me; I need more urgency and suspense. The detectives missed some pretty obvious clues, which I found frustrating. I don't know if authors do this purposely, so the reader feels smart figuring things out, but I find it annoying.

Slajaunie It is very annoying. We are not stupid. 5mo

I love the setting, both time and place: a coal-mining community in Ohio, 1925. Lily and Marvena have both suffered losses-a murdered husband and a missing daughter. These losses may be connected.

This is a very nice historical mystery. The pacing is steady, but not too fast, and I was very surprised by the end!! I just saw that the author is writing another book in this series, and I‘m so ready for it!!

Amory and Milo Ames are a wonderfully complicated crime-solving couple, and this sixth addition to the series was a clever one. It finds them leaving British soil for a friend‘s wedding in NYC. Someone is murdered (literally on their doorstep), and Amory can‘t resist sleuthing. We are introduced to an interesting gangster that I hope will show up in England at some point in the future. Much enjoyed! 4/5⭐️

I enjoyed this beginning to a new contemporary detective series set in North Devon featuring Detective Matthew Venn. Lots of characters who might have featured in the murder/abductions and some twists/turns. Venn will probably be more fleshed out in future offerings but strikes me as a conflicted, complicated soul stemming in large part from his upbringing. Would definitely read more. 4/5⭐️

Up next, a new mystery out in April. All I know about it is that it‘s the second in a series...which means I‘ll probably be doing some backtracking to read the first. 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️🤞🤞🤣
