This is the sixth book in a series but the first one that I have read, & it mainly works as a standalone. Although it was an interesting enough read & the plot was quite good, I have no desire to read the previous books as the characters just didn't appeal to me that much. For me to commit to a series there usually has to be some kind of wow factor & I just didn't feel that here. 3⭐

Linsy So sorry to hear about your Crohn's! It's something I deal with too -- autoimmune stuff is the worst!! I have the hardest time explaining to people why I can't do things and even end up gaslighting myself sometimes. Sending you love! 💕 6h

It‘s a soft pick for me. Kamilah and Liam have to fake date to hold onto their dreams of running their respective family businesses. I love a fake engagement but this one didn‘t sit quite right. The grandpas‘ antics started off cute, but were too much at the end. Kamilah‘s family walked a fine line between tough love and bullying. The saving grace was the genuine relationship between Kamilah and Liam which built off their years of friendship.

Zuhkeeyah I received this as an ARC from Mira books via #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 23h

I'm giving this one a pick, but just barely. I thought the idea was great, but sadly the story was slow in parts which kept disrupting the flow for me.

I enjoyed the female cast of characters and the book had some truly great slasher/horror moments. Malerman fans though will be pleased with this one I think. It's not my favorite by him, but still a good horror read.

vivastory I can't believe how prolific he is now 🤯 I've read only 4 of his books 13h

Not mysterious enough for me.

I liked the manuscript/beta-reading angle and the characters in the manuscript, but there were too many plot holes.

I went into this thinking it was a mystery/thriller. Although it starts with the discovery of a hand, the murder mystery only seems to be a background story and not the focus.

This book features a large cast of characters. I would recommend the print version to keep things straight. The audio made it difficult.

The author has written a book about small towns and small minded people making this more of a character study.

So creepy good! Family trip to an Australian island to see indigenous animals turns into an accident/nightmare/kidnapping. This one kept me on the edge of my seat for hours! Had loved his novel The Chain so I knew this was worth it!
