I enjoyed this book, it started slow but it soon started to pickup after the 3 main characters meet and start interacting with each other in this abandoned mansion where they will be working for the summer. There is just something mysterious and sinister in the house that starts penetrating their subconscious and you just know it‘s not going to end well.

Penny_LiteraryHoarders I find her books are like a slow burn. Their impact starts to settle in and stay on your mind well after you've finished. I haven't read this one yet, buy I do own it. 😊 2mo
Lidia I know what you mean @Penny_LiteraryHoarders . Just like Swimming Lessons 2mo
Penny_LiteraryHoarders @Lidia yes! For sure! I still think about that one!! 2mo

Flâneuse: I didn‘t even knew what the word meant before I picked up this book at the Strand some months ago. Women walking in the city, strolling, wandering by themselves. We take it for granted now but this concept used to be reserved for men only, the flâneur. I love this concept and I‘m loving this book ❤️

Booksnchill Listened to this on audio- while walking! Loved it! 3mo

I finally got to open my #myfavoritebookexchange package today. It was awesome! Thank you so much Rachel @iread2much everything was so pretty wrapped too. I‘m looking forward to read your recommendations, they sound so interesting. And the other 2 are books I really really wanted for a long time. Also you just have to tell me the name of the panda cookies. They are too cute to eat and insanely good! I ate the first package too fast ☺️ #mfbs

This was definitely a pick for me since it combines mystery, murder, family drama and two storylines that ultimately connect. One of them set in Germany right before the start of WWII. This is heading your way @shellleigh33 ! #LMPBC #GroupZ #Round3 @Velvetsun @cherinium

Starting this book today and I can't stop reading it now. It's about the relationship between Martha Gellhorn and Ernest Hemingway and I'm completely obsessed! At one point they said #idoidoido #AbbainAugust

Cinfhen I just read Love & Ruin ~ it was good but a bit too much detail for me, it kind of overpowered the story in a way. I‘d be curious to compare the two books, it was definitely an exciting time in history 10mo

Great book! Based on the stories of real women in the German resistance. Their husbands risked everything to stand up to Hitler and try to overthrow him. They failed and their families suffered the consequences of being treated liked traitors. A story of courage, survival and the bond between women that apparently had nothing in common until they are brought together by the war.

MinDea We just read this for #LitsyBuddyRead in February. I really enjoyed it. By the end of the book I felt so much for each of these women and their families. What they went through. 1y
