This was a nice book to listen to.
Becoming outcasted from her mennonite family due to being an unwed pregnant girl. When her baby is 4 months old, he has cancer, and now the truth will come out as to who the father is, which Rachel has tried to keep secret from her twin.
Loved the storyline, and the characters were very warm to follow in the story.

The Widow | Fiona Barton

Wow, the book itself advertises that it's a thriller. Which I didn't think it was at all. The widows husband kidnaps some child, kills her and lies about it, til one day he admits it to his wife.
The book wasn't bad, but a thriller? I didn't think so.

What a great classic. While reading I tried to picture Jack Nicholson, which at times gave me a great chuckle.
I haven't seen the movie, so thinking that will be in the future to do

Beartown: A Novel | Fredrik Backman
post image
Pickpick

Alot of people has said they can't read it because it's a hockey book. It is but more deeper than that. You are introduced to characters that you will love, get angry at, and also cheer and be disgusted with.
The only other thing I can say is, it was one great book, to me.

The Marriage Lie | Kimberly Belle

Panpan

I just couldn't finish this book. I got to chapter 15 then pretty well threw it across the room. The main character who lost her husband just kept whining about the same thing over and over again., like the author couldn't fill in the blanks, or was trying to make it longer.
To be honest I hated it.

bookladyreads That's how I felt about Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. DNF'd around page 250, read the last two chapters and moved on with my life. 🤣🤣🤣 1mo

Just finished this great book. The twists and turns are awesome to keeping you turning those pages, going from one "WHAT THE?" to the next "WHAT THE?"

Another great book. Chevy Stevens has a great way of keeping you interested as you keep turning the pages.
This is about of Toni and Ryan, a high school couple who are committed of murdering Toni's sister. But once they come out these two get out they are thinking of nothing more then solving this murder.
They have a feeling who the actual murder is, now they just need to prove it

This is a true story of a mother who gave up her child at the Foundling Hospital, during a hard time in hopes of getting him back at a later time.
The author of this book is the boy who's life your going to read about.
This little boy who knew nothing of his mother's love, being passed around orphan homes, being sent back because of some bad things that happened.
I loved this book, cried and cheered.

This was nice to listen to on audio, the story in this book was a nice soft romance, about a small town love that never ended for Emily and Nick even after she left to Chicago, because of the death of her mother and the secret her father kept.

I really enjoyed this book, the second of the Trilogy. Being such a big book, I need to read others before I dive into the next one.
This one was a sad one, but won't get into details about it, in case others want to read the Trilogy.
I would highly recommend it that's for sure

Wow, when it comes to children, I just don't understand how a woman can abuse her own children.
Kim kills a special needs person, because she got supend to court to testify against Kim on behalf of little Timmy who was being abused, along with three of her other children.
This book broke my heart, that with every marriage and pregnancy she got to keep the children, that the fathers were fighting for to get them away

This a true story about how a group of sisters start a dressmaking business, even with the dangers of the Taliban that seized control of Kabul. How they have survived the war of the 9/11 war. Heart warming and very interesting as you get transported to an Afganistan you have never seen before

I found yet another series I think I will be enjoying to listen to while walking, crafting etc.

Crazeedi Sounds like a possibility for a new series for me! Curious what you think! 3mo
bookaholic1 @Crazeedi I really liked it, try the first one like I did, just to see if I could go forward to listen to more of the series. I like the whodunnits, and I didn't guess who did it like most books. I think you would like it, but everyone has different tastes for each book. Just try it 3mo
Crazeedi @bookaholic1 I plan on it! Thank you!! 3mo

Her Last Breath | Linda Castillo

This is book #5 of the series. They just keep getting better and better.
This case is very close to the Chief of Police Kate Burkholder. An accident has happened to her once best friend Mattie's husband and children. Husband and two out of three of the children have died.
The investigation into the accident looks more like a murder then an accident. But Kate needs to keep investigating the incident to find out for sure as to what happened.

You also get to know what he did for his life leading up to his age of 100.

Solitude Creek | Jeffery Deaver

Love Jeffery Deaver, haven't read one in awhile and asking myself WHY??
A tragedy occurs at a small concert venue on the Monterey Peninsula. Cries of fire are raised and, panicked, people run for the exit doors, to find them blocked. People either die from being crushed, or are seriously injured. But it's the stampede that killed them, there was no fire.

Loved this book
