Strong female lead, terrible humans, multiple suspects, and some super natural flavor. St James is a master at her craft and this one is no exception. Read for #sundaybuddyread and overlapped as my #doublespin 🤘

Jo is a war widow who becomes the assistant to her husband's aunt. She soon realizes that all is not what it seems. Another great St. James book! I love how she mixes mystery with the paranormal.

Thanks @TheBookHippie for picking another great book for the #SundayBuddyRead!

TheBookHippie ♥️♥️♥️♥️it‘s so much fun with us all!!! 1d

Did I stay up way late to finish this one? Yes, yes I did. I‘ll pay for it tomorrow, but I had to find out what happens! Without giving away any spoilers, this #SupernaturalThriller is probably my second favorite by St James…she has this incredible way of building suspense with a multitude of clues and a creep factor that makes me keep all of the lights on as I read. Cannot wait to discuss this next Sunday! #SundayBuddyRead #BBRC #YeahBaby

I had to finish this today! The ending was just as surprising to me as I expected it would be. No review because I do not want to say anything to spoil our discussion next Sunday.

TheBookHippie ❤️❤️❤️ 3d
AmyG I can‘t wait to finish. 3d

I‘m sure I missed something.

I also have zero clues 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️what‘s happening …🤯

CANNOT WAIT TO FINISH! So glad I didn‘t stretch this out all five weeks of May!

Anyone have guesses????

Librarybelle No clue, but I am so ready to find out what happens! (I‘m also glad we‘re finishing as soon as we are! 😂) 4d
5feet.of.fury The week 3 chapters really brought up ALOT of questions. Can‘t wait to see how it ties together! 4d
Sargar114 I legitimately have no idea, but am thoroughly enjoying the ride. This one is my favorite of this time period. I loved seeing how much St James writing has evolved. This one is so much more layered than her other ones. 4d

TheBookHippie @Sargar114 I agree. I love this time period! This one is much better! Although I‘ve thoroughly enjoyed every single one. 4d
TheBookHippie @Librarybelle seriously I need to know! 4d
Sargar114 @TheBookHippie I have too. And this is not my preferred genre, but St James is a master at her craft! 4d
CoffeeNBooks I'm looking forward to finishing this one to see how everything connects! 4d
TheBookHippie @Sargar114 this is so not my genre either, but I love her writing it‘s oddly soothing … 4d
vlwelser St James clearly kept improving as she went along. It seems like every one is my new fav. I'm probably just going to go ahead and finish. So 🤐. But.... Thank you for not making this 5. 3d
BookwormAHN I can't wait to finish it 😺 3d
julieclair I am fascinated to see how this all comes together. And I'm very glad this was 4 weeks instead of 5. 👍 3d
kspenmoll I cannot wait to finish either. I love her books. Too many strands, clues to keep track of as usual. 3d
DebinHawaii I am looking forward to finishing. As I was sick last week, I read the last two sections really close together & it was hard to stop. I want to see how it all wraps up. 🤗 3d
AmyG My guesses never come true. But it is so fun to guess. Really enjoying this one. 3d

Dead leaves what is it???

Also her mom died? WHAT?

Librarybelle So tragic about Jo‘s mom. I cannot help but think of decay with leaves - the decay of the facade that Dottie puts up for her family. Secrets are about to be revealed. 4d
Sargar114 I don‘t know about the leaves either but that‘s a good thought @Librarybelle As sad as it is for Jo to lose her mother, I can only imagine there is quite a bit of relief as well. While now having no blood family, she can now focus on her life and what‘s best for her…on top of all the mysteries she has to solve lol 4d
CoffeeNBooks I definitely hope St. James explains the leaves in the last section- I'm curious about their significance! 4d

TheBookHippie @CoffeeNBooks if she doesn‘t I‘m asking on IG ! 🤣 4d
vlwelser Maybe this gives St James an opportunity to use her as a ghost. Her books do get a little crazy sometimes but that might be a stretch. 3d
Karisa Was her whole mom and scratches thing just a red herring? Better understanding of Frances/mental illness? I thought the mom dying thing came out of nowhere.,. 3d
TheBookHippie @Karisa she had that dream about someone hurting her mom and a name in the beginning of the book, was it just a red herring ? Or will it connect?! 3d
Sargar114 @TheBookHippie if she answers, you need to screenshot that and put it on here!!!! 3d
Karisa @TheBookHippie Oh yeah… I think I ignore dreams too much in books. I need to pay more attention to those details 3d
BookwormAHN According to Google dead leaves typically represent death and sadness. So maybe the leaves represent the family's turmoil and Frances' death. 3d
julieclair I'm wondering if the mom was murdered... 3d
kspenmoll The mom thing threw me- is it related? Dead leaves are sign of endings- & as yes, death. 3d
DebinHawaii Yes, her mom dying so suddenly seems suspicious & I‘m still interested in the scratches. Not sure how it‘s all related, the leaves too. 🤔 3d
AmyG I googled wht dead leaves foreshdowed. One idea was secrets. That family has some serious secrets. Jo married Alex after knowing basically nothing and out come the secrets. 3d

ALEX?
Just wow
And she was tying CODE?!
Hans is ALEX
…Jo had influenza when Alex left
Did she give it to him!

So are they still a couple?

All the stocking talk is the inspiration for the pic🤣

Why is he staying in bed with her? To protect her? What does he know?!

Librarybelle I kinda had suspicions we would see Alex. I‘m debating whether or not he‘s trying to be chivalrous and “protect” Jo, or if it‘s all an act. We know he‘s lying to everyone else. Is he telling Jo the truth? My hopeless romantic heart is hopeful that he‘s got Jo‘s best interests in mind. We‘ll see, I suppose… 4d
Sargar114 @Librarybelle I generally think Alex is telling Jo the truth and lying to everyone else. I think he is trying to protect her. By having a small wedding so the military and his family wouldn‘t know who she was. I also wasn‘t surprised we‘d see Alex given all the mentions of him missing vs dead but I am surprised it was so early in the book and that he‘s so integral to the story. I‘m kinda loving it! 4d
TheBookHippie @Sargar114 I‘m hoping he is telling the truth along with @Librarybelle I hope they end up happily ever after…which is quite unusual for my jaded black heart 😳🤣🤫I‘m quite liking this read! 4d

CoffeeNBooks I think Alex is trying to protect Jo- I think he knows there's a lot of suspicious stuff going on at Wych Elm as well as with Colonel Mabry, and possibly even with people in town, like Mr. Wilde. I think he's telling her as much as he can. 4d
vlwelser That stocking thing was awesome. I love her weird sex scenes. 3d
TheBookHippie @vlwelser research 1920s stockings it‘s a whole other rabbit hole 🤣🤣🤣 3d
Karisa I was sick all last week. So between this book and bingeing Downton Abbey, I‘m loving all the 1920s fashion, art, and big houses in the country! 🤞Alex is not a jerk! 3d
TheBookHippie @Karisa lots of covid and influenza b around here where we live 😩 hope you‘re feeling better. I‘ve somehow managed to “just” have an RA flare. 😅 3d
Kdgordon88 I wasn‘t surprised to see Alex show up and hope he‘s a good guy. 3d
Karisa @TheBookHippie Ouch! Hang in there. I think the Covid cases are way underreported here. I called Kaiser and they were like “🤷🏻‍♀️ get better” Now my daughter has it but seems mild. Ready for an end to the pandemic! 3d
BookwormAHN I was surprised Alex showed up so soon as well and I loved the stocking scene 😸 3d
julieclair I am so hoping Alex turns out to be a good guy, but I have my doubts. I would love Alex and Jo to have a "happily ever after". But the rest of them... I could care less! 3d
kspenmoll I too am hoping everything between them(Jo & Alex)works out in the end as @Librarybelle @TheBookHippie said. 3d
kspenmoll @Karisa I am glad you are better! My husband & son both have Covid. My husband got an antiviral drug( he is older & his immune system is compromised) she he is slowly recovering. I remain neg. 🤞🏻 3d
DebinHawaii Like @Sargar114 I was surprised that Alex came back this early in the book although I fully expected him to be alive. I feel like he & Jo will solve the mystery & murder together & he is telling her what he knows & being truthful. @Karisa I feel you with the COVID thing—I was sick for a week & I am still just so tired. 😷😵 3d
Karisa @DebinHawaii @kspenmoll 😥 It‘s such a bad virus. Wishing you and yours health and 💪 3d
TheBookHippie @DebinHawaii ugh…. Awful! Hope you get your strength back soon! ❤️ 3d
TheBookHippie @kspenmoll 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 3d
AmyG @TheBookHippie Feel better. Glad you are better @Karisa and @kspenmoll I hope your husband and son are better soon. ❤️ 3d
AmyG I knew Alex would come back. Jo wasn‘t over hum and Simone‘s books always have a love story plotline. I agree with @CoffeeNBooks that he is protecting her. I think he is telling her as much as he feels he can but there‘s more to know. And I am wondering if that more….is the Francis plot line. 3d
