Mehso-so

I enjoyed the mystery and I enjoyed the twist at the end and how she keeps bringing up more questions as she provides answers to others. But, I feel like there was a whole lot of book with a whole lot of nothing happening. And maybe there are things that will be revealed in book 3 that will make that relevant. There was just something that was okay about this one and not as great as the first.

Got a bit carried away today. Mostly secondhand though

ErinSueMreads I totally went to a library book sale today and came home with like thirty so don't feel bad 😂 4d
Gillyreads @ErinSueMreads library sales are dangerous! 4d
ErinSueMreads So dangerous! I went right at the end so there wasn't a ton left. Last year I went to a big one in Denver and literally came home with the entire back of my suv full. I was in big trouble trying to sneak all those upstairs 😂😂😂😂 4d

#bookreview - ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 This book was headed for 5 stars until about 3/4 in when I felt that the new character introduced halfway in was an unnecessary, last-minute addition. It annoyed me. As did the last several pages of the book. Other than that, the story was great and I‘ll be reading more Jennifer McMahon in the future.

Well, despite some annoying details and not particularly enjoying Fiona and finding the conclusion to Sonia's story to be rushed, I enjoyed this. I could read a whole series about the Idlewood girls. Their friendship was the best part. I can't believe I'm saying this, but the ghost story almost seemed unnecessary. It either needed to be have more relevancy, or be done away with all together. Overall, not perfect, but very engrossing.

This trilogy was so much fun! I'm really sad that it's over. I was a little worried they were going to have a crappy ending, but thankfully, it was great!

As an added bonus, the author has a delightful pinterest board with random ephemera from the books (including the one posted above).

I'm sorry....but....who the fuck keeps chardonnay under the sink and who 'shudders' when drinking chardonnay?....it's pretty mellow...unless it went bad because you kept a bottle of chardonnay under your sink for a year. This story is good, but there's been a lot of weird little details like this that are just driving me nuts

Melwilk @IndyHannaJones Who needs an emergency to drink Chardonnay anyway 🤷‍♀️ There are quite a few ridiculous phrases on that page 😂 5d
IndyHannaJones @Melwilk right!? It's not like a shameful secret bottle of hard liquor... It's a glass of 5%alcohol chardonnay. I just....I just can't with some of these things. It's not a bad book but I'm kinda like, really Simone? Really? 5d
thebacklistbook I may be wrong. I think having read that passage that she shudders because of two things she hates Chardonnay and she has let it become vinegar through improper storage. 4d

#currentlyreading On to book number two for #24b4Monday and I‘m starting Jennifer McMahon‘s The Winter People this morning! I read 8 hrs 23 min yesterday, which was quite a bit more than I expected! Today is a busier day with errands to run and a school banquet for my son tonight, so we‘ll see how it goes! Have a great Saturday!
