#DearLittleCorpses #NicolaUpson #BookSpinBingo

As the mass evacuation takes place across Britain, thousands of children leave London for the countryside. When a little girl vanishes without a trace, the reality of separation becomes more urgent and more deadly for those who love her. This is the first book of the ten books of Josephine Tey series that I have read. It can be read as a standalone so that is not a problem.

EadieB The setting, characters, and plot were intriguing enough to keep me turning the pages until the very end. If you like Golden Age mystery with a timeless fears of a child‘s abduction, then you will love this one. I would like to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for a copy for an honest review. 1d
rubyslippersreads I‘m also fascinated by books about child evacuees in WWII, so this sounds right up my alley. 1d

#StayAwake #MeganGoldin #BookSpinBingo

Liv Reese doesn't remember anything. What did she do last night? Why does she remember nothing from the past two years? Liv finds herself on the run for a crime she doesn't remember committing. There's someone who does know exactly what she did, and they'll do anything to make her forget permanently.

EadieB This has a well-crafted set of characters and a plot that is cleverly written. The twists and turns kept me guessing until the very end. If you love complex thrillers, then you will love this one. I would like to thank NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for a copy for an honest review. (edited) 2d

#ASimpleChoice #DavidPepper #BookSpinBingo

Palmer Knight, a fast-rising TV news correspondent, is sent to cover a mysterious death of a senator who jumps from a cliff in Maine,. Army veteran and former Supreme Court, Amity Jones, finds herself enmeshed in a political conspiracy and ultimately into Palmer's investigation of the senator's death. This is a political book that did not disappoint.

EadieB It it a medical research of what to do to save a loved one. It is a plot that takes us on a roller coaster ride as we weave through a conspiracy to figure out who is behind the death.

#TheThingsWeDoInTheDark #JenniferHillier #BookSpinBingo

Paris Paralta is charged with murder after she finds her celebrity husband dead in the bathtub. Ruby Reyes was charged with murder twenty-five years ago. Reyes knows who Paris really is and she threatens to expose all of Paris‘ secrets. This is a heart-pounding and surprise-filled plot that started out slow but heated up and kept me turning pages until the very end.

#DarkObjects #SimonToyne #BookSpinBingo

Laughton Rees' novel was found at the murder scene. Kate Muller was killed. Did her husband do it? Laughton's mom was murdered when she was fifteen. She cut off contact with her dad, a police commissioner, whom she blamed for failing to prevent the murder. The crime scene had some disturbing personal elements for Laughton. Is someone sending her a message?

EadieB I enjoyed this book and found the plot intriguing. The characters were well-drawn and complicated. The twist at the end was a complete surprise and very satisfying. If you like crime thrillers with hidden messages, then you will enjoy this book. I would like to thank William Morrow and NetGalley for a copy for an honest review. (edited) 1w

#TheItGirl #RuthWare #BookSpinBingo

April Clark-Clivedon and Hannah Jones were roommates at Oxford. But by the end of the year, April was dead. The Oxford porter, John Neville, killed her. Ten years later, Hannah and Will are married and expecting a child. John Neville has died in prison. A young journalist has brought forth new evidence that John Neville may be innocent. Is one of her friends guilty of murder?

EadieB I really enjoyed this book. The characters were so life-like and the plot was fast-paced. There were plenty of twists and lots of red herrings. By the end of the book, I had changed my mind three times. Ruth Ware is surely clever and the book is unputdownable. I would like to thank NetGalley and Galley/Scout Press for a copy for an honest review. 2w

#RunAway #HarlanCoben #BookSpinBingo

You've lost your daughter. She's addicted to drugs and to an abusive boyfriend. And she's made it clear that she doesn't want to be found. Then, quite by chance, you see her busking in New York's Central Park. But she's not the girl you remember. This woman is wasted, frightened and clearly in trouble. You don't stop to think. You approach her, beg her to come home. She runs.

EadieB And you follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed. Where criminal gangs rule, where drugs are the main currency, and murder is commonplace. Now it's your life on the line. And nowhere and no one is safe. 2w
EadieB This is a book that I felt sorry for Simon. He was chasing his daughter throughout the whole book. We found out that she was hooked on drugs and a bit frightened. It wasn't until the end that he caught up to her and changed her mind. She made him promise not to tell her mother that she killed her friend. It was ok but not one of his best. 2w

A Handful of Heaven | Kristin Hannah

#AHandfulofHeaven #KristinHannah #BookSpinBingo

Yukon Territory was a gold miner's heaven, and Devon O'Shea had come to claim her share. But instead of a thriving store in a boom town, Devon discovered she was part owner of a filthy, disorganized tent with a bunch of gold diggers and a mountainous slap of animosity for a partner: Stone Man McKenna.

EadieB Gathering mop, pail and sheer determination, Devon vowed to make this post the best in the Yukon Territory. Stone Man didn't scare her. But his kiss -- a gruff attempt to convince her that the Yukon was no place for a lady -- left her feeling, for the first time in her life, feminine and alive . . . 2w
EadieB This was an interesting story. It was more of a romance than a mystery. It had a good feeling about it and changed the way I saw the Yukon Territory. It was a good Kristin Hannah story and left me a bit surprised at the ending. It was one of the first books that Kristin Hannah wrote and I would have to say that I loved it a lot. 2w

#TheExtraordinaryDeathsofMrsKip #SaraBrunsvold #BookSpinBingo

Aidyn Kelley agrees to help a hospice patient prepare her obituary. Clara Kip has some incredible stories. Some surprises promise to make this throwaway assignment a life-changing one. This was an incredible read. Clara told Aidyn about her husband who died 8 months after they were married. Aidyn wondered why she hadn't married again.

EadieB While attempting to read about his death, Aidyn found out that he was Laotian and was in a car accident. Clara Kip asked Aidyn to make her obituary sound like something extraordinary. Aidyn did an investigation and found out that the Laotian refugee resettlement effort in 1975 brought about the immigration of Laotian people into America. 2w
EadieB Though the resettlement effort is long over, many organizations today carry on the legacy of caring for the physical, spiritual and educational needs of refugees and immigrants in Kansas City. After Clara died, they did a special party for her on the grass and read her obituary. It was a special tribute to Clara Kip and a good time for all.

#TheVanishingTriangle #ClaireMcGowan #AwesomeApril #Readathon #BookSpinBingo

In the 1990's, Ireland seemed a safe place for women. It was easy to ignore non-political murders and sexual violence. Claire McGowan delivers a candid investigation into the culture of secrecy, victim-blaming and shame. McGowan reveals an Ireland of outdated social and sexual mores, perceived propriety and misguided politics.

EadieB Was an unknown serial killer at large or was there something even more insidious at work? Eight women went missing from an area roughly 80 miles around Dublin. This is a fascinating read and well-researched by McGowan. I enjoyed this book as it was very passionate to McGowan to write. I would like to thank NetGalley and Amazon Publishing UK Little A for a copy for an honest review. 1mo

An Honest Lie | Tarryn Fisher

#AnHonestLie #TarrynFisher #AwesomeApril #Readathon #BookSpinBingo #Doublespin

Rainy lives at the top of Tiger Mountain and she is hiding from the disturbing past she wants to forget. She agrees to a girls‘ weekend in Vegas but after a wild night, her friend Braithe doesn‘t come back to the hotel room. Then Rainy gets a text message sent from Braithe‘s phone: someone has her. But Rainy is who they really want, and Rainy knows why.

EadieB Does Rainy need to step back into the past in order to save Braithe? Are the girls that Rainy meets really her friend? This is a heart-pounding and suspense-filled plot that started out slow but heated up and kept me turning pages until the very end. The timeline switches back and forth between now and then. There were a few twists that I didn't see coming but only enhanced the story. 1mo
EadieB If you like psychological thrillers then I am sure you will like this one. I would like to thank Harlequin Trade Publishing, Graydon House and NetGalley for a copy for an honest review. To be published 4/26/22. 1mo
EadieB This is my #DoubleSpin for #April 1mo

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView Thanks for the tag! @Eggs

1. Of course! Who doesn‘t?

2. I probably own 5,000 books 📚 and they have been on my shelves since 2010 when I started collecting books and I still get books from the library and NetGalley and every month I say I‘m going to read my own books but never do! It‘s a life of a reader! lol

Can you play? @itsjustme40something @AmyK1 @peanutnine @OrangeMooseReads @MittenGirlPeach

Kitta 5,000? I wish I had the space for that! My little New York apartment only fits a few hundred. 1mo
TheSpineView Yes, it is the life of a bibliophile! Thanks for playing! 1mo
EadieB @Kitta I had 10,000 but my husband made me get rid of half of them! 1mo

EadieB @TheSpineView You‘re welcome! 1mo
Eggs Agreed!! 1mo
Kitta Oh wow, that would have been so hard to decide which ones to get rid of. 1mo
EadieB @Kitta I mostly got rid of the ones that my library had copies and kept the hard to find ones that I ordered from the UK. 1mo
BookBabe 😅 The life of a reader indeed! What did you do with the books you parted with? I‘m purging now too and wondering if I should try to sell them to a used book store. 1mo
EadieB @BookBabe I gave a lot of them away at the Philly meeting, sold some online yard sale, Paperbackswap.com and gave them to thrift stores. Secondsale.com will buy books too. 1mo

#31DreamStreet #LisaJewell #AwesomeApril #Readathon #BookSpinBingo

Leah lives across the street from Toby and his eccentric house where Toby has a lot of misfit tenants. Leah finally meets Toby and somehow with fate, romance and a helping hand, Toby and Leah's relationship show the makings of a dream come true. I love the characters in this book. It was fun to read about them and their quirky ways and see what was in store for them.

EadieB I found it to be a feel-good story laced with Jewell's warmth and humor. I have read many of her books and have enjoyed them all. If you like touching and entertaining books then I am sure you will enjoy this one. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1mo
Andrew65 Love Lisa Jewell books. 1mo

The Woods | Harlan Coben
post image
Pickpick

#TheWoods #HarlanCoben #AwesomeApril #Readathon #BookSpinBingo #BookSpin

Paul Copeland, county prosecutor, is grieving over the murder of his sister. He is now working on a murder investigation that could be related to his sister's case. Twenty years ago, four young people went missing in the woods while at a summer camp. Two were found murdered and two are still missing. Can Paul's sister, Camille, still be alive?

EadieB This book hooked me from the start. I found it to be a fast-paced suspenseful read. Harlan Coben is the master of the twist and this book does not disappoint. If you like stories about family secrets then you will enjoy this one. It is definitely one of his better stories. I am now looking forward to reading another of his books as Coben always delivers. This is my #BookSpin for April. 1mo
Andrew65 My first standalone by Harlan Coben and still a favourite. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Yes it was really good. I got approved for The Dark Tide first thing this morning! 1mo

Andrew65 @EadieB I never seem to get approved for Harlan Coben books, Both book 1 and 2 pending, Book 1 been on list almost two years! (edited) 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I never got approved for his books either. Are you talking about The Boy From The Woods. The Match my library has a copy. Aren‘t they published yet in the UK? (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes they are now, but they were both requested before they were published. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Well! That's their loss as you love his books and would give them a good review! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Most definitely, it even says in my profile he is one of my favourite authors. First task once I officially finish work next Monday is to get my Net Galley up to date. A number of reviews to write and a large number of books to read. Just finished my 100th review for them. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I still have 18 books to read and I‘ve done 125 reviews. 100 is good for you as you joined a bit after me. 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Quite a few reviews I still need to write. Will definitely take me over 110. 125 is excellent. Not sure how many more I‘ve got to read, but approved for another couple today. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Those will definitely keep you out of trouble! I keep saying that I won‘t request anymore until I finish what I have but it doesn‘t work out that way! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Ditto! I am a tad more selective these days but some you can‘t not request! 😂 (edited) 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I just requested the latest Cork O‘Connor. Just had to have that one! Hope I can get it! 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘m hoping to get the next Roy Grace and. Vera Stanhope book. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 The Rising Tide by Ann Cleeves is not available for me to request yet but I got denied Elly Griffiths (edited) 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB Got the previous couple of Ruth Galloway books on net galley, but from some reason The Locked Room wasn‘t available on their site over here. (edited) 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 That‘s strange! 1mo

#TheDiamondEye #KateQuinn #AwesomeApril #Readathon #BookSpinBingo

This book is based on a true story. Mila Pavlichenko was a librarian and a history student. During World War II she became the deadliest female sniper during Hitler's invasion of Ukraine and killed over 300 Nazis and was known as Lady Death. She becomes a national heroine and is sent to Washington D.C. on a goodwill tour to meet First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

EadieB She soon finds herself battling her own demons and enemy bullets in the deadliest duel of her life which will change the course of history. This book shows the horrors of war. The characters were believable and seemed very real. The great writing allowed me to picture what Mila was experiencing. The story is told from Mila's POV and official memoir entries with her humorous observations also notes from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. 1mo
EadieB I have read The Alice Network and The Rose Code and enjoyed those books. I am now looking forward to reading The Huntress. The Diamond Eye is a must read for historical fiction readers. 1mo
EadieB The Diamond Eye is my #BookSpin for #March 1mo
