😭😭😭 the worst book hangover I‘ve had in a loooonnnnggggg time 😩😩😩 I listened to the first six novels in this series when I was commuting for work. This is the first one I‘ve read (as opposed to listening), and it is probably my favourite so far. I also really liked that it took place in Edinburgh, which I‘m missing something fierce! The cliffhanger in this one though, y‘all — prepare yourself!

Not my favourite as I don‘t really like reading about things set during the COVID pandemic. Still looking forward to the next one and to see where Ruth and Nelson find themselves!

Kayla.Adriena I agree we just lived it and are still living it why do we need books about it already 🤔. Gorgeous cover though 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I really liked this one and was surprised to see it had only 3.83 stars on goodreads. If you liked this, read the short story “EDickinsonRepiLuxe”, which is in Joyce Carol Oates‘ ‘Wild Nights‘

I wanted to read this as I was really intrigued by the concept of people starting anew and to see how this group evolved. My interest in books like Where the Crawdad‘s Sing, Educated, The Silent Alone & Prodigal Summer led me to this title — if enjoyed any of those titles, you might like this one too

Kdgordon88 I‘ve read and loved 3 out of the four. Stacked! 10mo
SamAnne I‘m currently reading. Not too far in yet but I‘m getting sucked into the story. 10mo

The southern lady stereotype was spot on at certain points, which I appreciated as I‘ve been so long away from that. It helped me immediately identify with these women. However, there was a big part of me that wanted this to be something more than it was. There‘s a metaphor in there I‘m sure but it‘s not near as powerful as I‘d hoped it‘s be. ⚰️⚰️⚰️

BlueMoonJ This book fascinated me. The horror was a lot more than just a vampire. Worse even. Trying not to post spoilers. 13mo
Librariana I felt very similarly about it - wanted it to be more than what it was. 13mo
Ms.Story @BlueMoonJ I‘m glad to hear you liked it! I‘m worried I moved through the audio too quickly as there‘s something there but it just hasn‘t clicked for me yet. But ... I definitely saw a range of things/people that drained life and purpose from these women. 13mo
Reggie @BlueMoonJ was it the husbands? Cause they were HORRIBLE. I wanted to punch all of them. 13mo

I was really into some parts of this audio ... especially the parts that referenced the individual narratives we make from shared experiences. I wish that had been explored a bit more. I also feel like the ending was quite abrupt 🤔

Honestly thought this series wasn‘t to my liking as I usually enjoy the detective, procedural aspects of crime/detective novels. I enjoyed book one but didn‘t anticipate reading anymore of the series due to the graphic details from victim‘ point of view. But then I found I‘d listened to all 6 in the series in two weeks!!!

Binged Bridgerton on Netflix and finished this audio in two days while attempting to get our home back in order! Still a bit more smitten with Daphne & Simon but enjoyed this fairytale nonetheless ❤️❤️❤️
