Totally engaging and compelling mystery crime novel. Absorbing storytelling and well portrayed characters. This is a very enjoyable story. It‘s a shame there will be no continuation to this series as I‘d have loved to read more.

I really loved this book, it's fantasy and murder mystery combined. It's gripping and fast paced.

Mehso-so

A fast paced thriller mixed with suburban drama. This was an easy read and full of twists and turns but ultimately hated the ending. While I would recommend for anyone who likes thrillers and for the most part had fun reading, it ended up being a bit of a let down and a weird epilogue. Hence middle of the road for me. #bookspin for January

5feet.of.fury I haven‘t read this one yet, but that‘s how I feel about all her books 😂 37m
5feet.of.fury Was the plot good? Not really. Were the characters likable? Nah. Did I immediately devour it nonstop? Yes. 35m
Sargar114 @5feet.of.fury 💯 1m
Sargar114 @5feet.of.fury it was my first read of hers, given to me by a friend. Absolutely devoured but yeah definitely not likable characters and the resolution was pretty disappointing now
5feet.of.fury @Sargar114 the twists always hook though, she‘s always a go to for me if I get stuck in a reading slump. My favorite of hers was now

January Reviews

Septuagenarian crossword creator, Judith, thinks her neighbor has been murdered. She forms a friendship with Suzie, a dog walker, and Becks, the vicar‘s wife, while she tries to solve his murder.

I enjoyed this one and I‘m hoping I can find the second audiobook at my library soon. I think this is being compared to The Thursday Murder Club, but I didn‘t love it quite like I do that series. #Booked2023 #propernounintitle

Bookzombie Sorry for the repost. I had to change from blurb to review. 🤪 9h

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was my first time reading Ruth Ware, and I‘m interested in how her other books compare. I definitely enjoyed this one. I thought I had it figured out but then didn‘t. A fun thriller set on a college campus with interesting characters. I recommend if you‘re looking for a good thriller!

From the first sentence, we know a terrible event is approaching, then we move inexorably toward that while getting to know those involved. I feel like this is a deceptively simple book. This is my second by O‘Nan and won‘t be my last—he is beautifully able to create mood. #toblonglist

BarbaraBB It was my first but I read another book by him soon after and will definitely read more. 8h

Such a tragic story. Very well written and researched. It isn‘t an easy book to read but I think an important one about Canadian law & justice.

Snow Falling on Cedars | David Guterson

Re: A book set in winter for a reading program. I couldn't decide between the above, Left Hand of Darkness, Anna Karenina, Winter Garden, and Winter World, so I started them all. It came down to Snow and Left Hand leapfrogging each other with Snow finishing first. It's as long as Karenina but much closer to home, more focused. Winter Garden seemed like a sleeper at first. Then it just put me to sleep. I dropped Winter World after meeting everyone.
