I just made my first purchase from ThriftBooks. 😬 I‘m obsessed with this series and it‘s so hard to find the books.🤬 I was going to order the next one, The Death Sculptor, but it‘s out of stock. 🙃

Andrea313 Thrift Books is so wonderful and so dangerous! Happy searching. 🙂 1d

What a nice conclusion to this series. It‘s WWII historical fiction but in San Francisco. The Mulligan family all do their best to chip in and make the best of things. Such a nice read. I would recommend starting with the 1st book.

Booknerd2 First book of the series. 💜💜💜 2d

Love these books, Sam and Nick are a great couple. Each one has a separate mystery but I highly recommend you start with the 1st. Romance, sex scenes, suspense and witty banter between characters. Must reads for me.

I really enjoyed this book. The genre is Christian Fiction but I would say its more historical romance. Verity Banning travelled to the Indies with her 2 sisters to take over their father‘s sugar plantation and fell smitten with a ship Captain. Now she sets off to America to start her own path and find her beau. She will find nothing she expects.

CrowCAH Looks right up my alley! 2mo

So good and so much fun. The FBI team has to save a billionaire and ultimately the world. A brilliant maniac has launched a nuclear satellite into space and plans to detonate it.

It is what it is. If you‘re looking for literature, move along. 😜 If you‘re looking for a spicy, quick romance with little substance and lots of sex, then this is your book. 🤗 It‘s very sweet and predictable. Not as racy as Fifty Shades and consent is definitely emphasized.

This book was dark and twisted , but I wouldn‘t say graphic. It was between a pick and so-so. I liked the writing, easy to read and quick paced. A lot of twists and turns that I didn‘t see coming. My so-so would probably be the ending. I just didn‘t like it. I may have been horrified by it or just disappointed. 😔 Read it and decide for yourself.😎 I‘ve seen a lot of mixed reviews. I will say, I would read another by this author.

What a good book!!! Charlotte‘s sister is taken to a mental institution, so she gets herself committed. The story that follows is sad, infuriating, and hopeful. This is eye opening as to the deplorable treatment of women throughout history. I found myself feeling so many emotions and rooting for all these poor souls. Part romance, part suspense, and big part historical fiction. Highly recommend!!! 💜💜💜

Seriously, how does this author do it? Every. Single. Book. Is better than the previous one. Love Maisie Dobbs and so grateful to make this journey with her. In this one, she investigates the murder of an American reporter, while the Blitz is in full force and her personal life is in limbo. 💜💜💜 I highly recommend this series!!!!

rretzler I absolutely loved this book and love series too. I will admit that the first few were a little uneven - when Maisie was semi-psychic, but once that faded away, they have been fantastic ever since! Have you tried Susan Elia MacNeal‘s Maggie Hope series? It reminds me a little of this one. 3mo
Booknerd2 @rretzler I have not but I definitely will now. Thanks for the recommendation. 3mo

There is absolutely nothing this man could write that I wouldn‘t READ AND LOVE!!!!! 💜💜💜 This book is amazing, not only for the twists and turns, good vs. evil, and the southern feel to it. The emotional roller coaster is exhausting. There are a lot of characters,and at any point in the story, you go from love to hate or cheering to jeering in a nanosecond. There are a few solid despicable human beings, but the rest 🤔? Also 💜💜💜 the ending!!!

Final Shadows | Kay Hooper

I‘m so sad. 😢 I don‘t think I‘ve ever given a bad rating on here. I‘ve bailed on some but never really blamed the book, more myself. I‘ve read all of Hooper‘s books and enjoyed them, that‘s why I finished this one. What a disappointment. The synopsis was misleading, everyone was talking in riddles, and nothing really happened until the very end. It won‘t dissuade me from reading her again but another one like this will definitely be a bail!!

Karkar I think that most authors have a book that even their biggest fans do not like. I love Stephen King but he has a few that I will never read again because I disliked them so much. 3mo

I loved this book. A bit slow going in the beginning, but well worth it. It‘s told over 3 view points but there are other key characters. Hunting the huntress, a killer Nazi, these people stop at nothing to try and track her down. Their reasons and personal journeys unfold in the book. So, so good!!! 💜💜💜

Jack Swyteck‘s abuela has never asked him for a favor in all his years of practicing law, until now, and it‘s a doozie. Free an undocumented immigrant woman from an ICE detention center and help her avoid deportation. A daunting task in and of itself, she has a lot of baggage that will hinder this case. Theo also makes an appearance and they work to keep Julia in the United States. Super good book. Highly recommend, this book and series!!

A young woman is found murdered at a wedding, yet no one knows who she is, definitely not a guest. Alex and Milo painstakingly chip away at the investigation and piece by piece try and solve the case. I really enjoyed it. Some twists but mostly a slow, deliberate path of hunting down clues to solve the case.
