I usually really enjoy James Patterson, but not this time. It was just so unbelievable, and nothing moved forward.

In A Bakeshop Mystery #2, Jules accepts an invitation to join a TV baking contest to help save her family's bakery. But she soon finds herself wrapped up in another murder mystery where every one has secrets they are trying to hide. Who was willing to go as far as murder to keep it hidden. I enjoyed this one as much as the first in the series.

I Gave it 3 stars, this series is one on my comfort pleasures. I know I'll get a descent storyline and a few laughs. Somehow I skipped book #8 so I'll have to back tracked before I move on to book #10

My first bail of the year. I spent hours and about 50% in but I can't do it. It's extremely repetitive, and the character development just isn't there for me. Has great reviews, major letdown for me

Fun Cozy Christmas Romance. Story about the love between two sisters. One who appears to have a perfect life and one has the appearance of being rebellious and carefree. The choice of 2 attractive men. A run down book shop but what awaits inside is a treasure. Appearances vs reality. What I didn't like was that it was a little long winded and a little too predictable but overall a good holiday read that feels like a hallmark movie.

Made it 40% thru but couldn't continue.. Amateur writing, one evil ghost with a house full of ghosts that act more like Casper the friendly ghost, wild goose chase for his missing parents, was not enjoying this one.

Corrag | Susan Fletcher

This book goes by these 3 titles. Corrag tells her story in a jail cell waiting for execution for Witchcraft. She's fled her home in England for safety and found herself in the Scottish Highlands. Where she befriended the villagers of Glencoe and finally found some peace and a place to call her own. But trouble soon arrives at their doorstep. I also learned about the Glencoe Massacre of 1692. Highly recommend this for fans of Historical Fiction

My daughter taking a class in Holocaust Literature so after she was finished with it. I picked it up. I'm numb with emotions and in a book hangover from this true story of a survivor who was only around 15 at the time. Been awhile since a book has made me cry.

Didn't care for this book at all, weak Character Development and unlikable characters, I honestly didn't care of any of them, and plot was Meh at best. Some twist and turns but really unbelievable and Silly. Don't get the hype and a totally waste of my time. Only gave it 2 🌟 on Goodreads

I've read a few of her books before fun, entertaining, lighthearted romances. It's what I wanted and expected but thats not what I got. I got so much more. What I got was a hard look at many social issues, Race, social classes, women's rights, and our criminal justice system. Do not let this cover and title fool you. Its about life's sugar and salt. One of the best books I've read this year.

As a proud Appalachian from SouthWest Virginia, grow up only an hour from Troublesome Creek, I love love these books. So happy to read about our beautiful Appalachian culture, society, and landscapes. Our stories are just now starting to get told. Picture of my new pillow that was gifted to me by a special friend, it's even personalized my name on it.

I love this series but this one was only ok for me. Agatha follows James to Cyprus after their ditched wedding. She just seemed so desperate for him. I missed the village and people of Carsley, and wasn't interested in this plot in another country. The introduction of Charles was nice and I hope he remains in the series. I think he's a better match for Agatha. I'll continue on in the series and find out.

This grab my interest because it's so different about a polyamorous couple. I'm polyamorous and was thrilled to see a book about it. Well it was just so bad, I made it thru 25% but couldn't go on. But on a wild guess because polyamorous couples do not live this way, she's probably crazy stalking and delusional. But that's just my guess

This is my 3rd Chris Bohjalian novel, after Midwives and The Hour of The Witch both of which I rated 5 stars. I enjoy it but was my least of the 3 and I will probably rate a 3 on good reads. Still will not be my last of his. The ending was unpredictable but very unrealistic and I found it humorous for some reason. Shes a very unlikable character that has a drinking problem which causes a hard fast downward spiral.

Maria514626 Oh, that‘s disappointing! It sounded so good. This one was amazing. (edited) 7mo
BookedBySunrise @Maria514626, That one is on my To be read list. He is a very good author so I'll continue to read his work. 7mo

Ok, Probably an unpopular opinion but I've decided to bail on this one. The writing is slow and I've found myself rereading Passages because her writing style is confusing to me. Half way thru it and just not liking it at all. The picture is of My finch so if anyone has the app you will understand why he's so cute. My code is L8Z2HEL3VX is interested in being my neighbor

I tend to avoid hype up books, but my daughter who absolutely hates to read asked me to take her to the library for this book. Then she proceeded to fly thru it and is now insisting that I do too. So here it goes.

Helping me realize that my pain is my pain but I'm also reliving generation after generation of trauma surrounding abandonment. My mother abandoned me physically, she felt abandoned by my grandmother emotionally who felt the same way emotionally about my great grandmother who was sent away from the family at the age of 3 . I knew our family history, but this book help me piece it all together and why this keeps happening

Written very badly. I struggled thru the entire book. What I did like was learning about these cases, but I found the writing was repetitive and the fact she mentions several times how horrible America was when these cases had absolutely nothing to do with America was a little off putting. Also strays from the victims to other cases that may or may not be connected. It was just really confusing.

KristiAhlers Yeah I‘ve already run into a thinly veiled snide comment about America and I‘m not even through the first chapter. This should be fun. Why can‘t authors keep their opinions to themselves in books like this. 9mo
BookedBySunrise @KristiAhlers, and skips around to other cases. But did it in a way that I stayed confused and lost my focus. Soon I didn't know if im reading about the original 8 missing women or not. 9mo

Now that I've finished and thought about it.. Here my review, I hated it.. The Characters are blend and unlikable all of them, Very repetitive, a few good power points made but overall extremely boring.. I felt like I was reading an essay instead of story. I wanted to read at least one classic this year and I accomplished that. After hearing such high praise about this book for as long as I can remember it, I'm very disappointed.

Alfoster I think this is a hard one to read without some discussion! There‘s so much to debate and debrief that reading it on your own would be difficult and annoying! 11mo

Second Book in the Hungarian Tea House Mysteries.. I like the fact it introduced new characters, but the plot didn't hold my interest like the first book in the series did.. I will continue on and eventually read the third book because I do enjoy these characters and I want to know what is in store for them in the future
