Hoping to finish this one before New Years!
And she was feeling good, at first. Then she began to feel strange, as if she was expanding, taking on new acreage too rapidly to keep up with her own topography. Feelings were returned to her like toys she hadn‘t seen since childhood, and she held them awkwardly, unsure of what to do with them as an adult.
The only bad thing about reading Christmas books at other times of the year is that I always, ALWAYS, end up getting a Christmas song stuck in my head for at least a week. This morning I was doing laundry and I couldn‘t figure out why I had Elvis‘s “Here Comes Santa Claus” stuck in my head 🎅🏻🤦🏼♀️
Well, this explains the internet access. I can‘t stop reading this book. It is crazy!!! I remember when one of the daughters escaped and the authorities went into the house and found the horrible conditions, but it was even worse than what they reported at the time. It‘s amazing that all of them survived it.
So many bizarre things about this family but I am really shocked that they had access to the internet??
Ailsa Calder‘s life takes an unexpected turn when her mother passes away. She discovers that she has inherited a house in Scotland. It‘s a house she lived in as a very young girl, but she and her mother left when her father went missing. Ailsa had no idea that her mother still owned the house, and she‘s even more surprised to find that her father‘s name is still on the deed as well. And that‘s just the start of the twists this book offers!!
I was lucky enough to have someone share their early copy of this book with me. It is SO GOOD. Really suspenseful and creepy. I stayed up way too late last night finishing it. Five stars!!! 🌠
I really liked the first book in this series and bought this one in 2018, fully intending to read it right away. Here we are in May 2019. I just now finished it today and the next book in the series comes out in a week. Ha ha. So I‘ll probably buy that one and read it in 2020! Anyway, I really like these books. The main character is a detective/former cop named Nils Shapiro. He‘s kind of a mess and a smart ass but a great detective!
This is the 25th book in the Faith Fairchild series. I have read all of them. I‘ve been reading these for years. I‘m not a good cook or baker but I have actually made some of the food from these books (recipes always included)! I love this series. 💕
I received an early copy of this book from the publisher.
I‘ve now read three books by this author and this one was by far my favorite. A truly great story and plot that kept me guessing from start to finish. And let me tell you, there were some jaw dropping twists near the end!! I really recommend this book. If you like suspenseful books you‘ll love this one.
“That night, when Graham, Karen and I did peyote, I remember telling myself that if the album was shit, I was gonna be okay. Because I could make spoons for a living. That logic wasn‘t sound, obviously. But the thought did stick with me. You can‘t put all your eggs in one basket.”
Requested this one from the library so I‘m the first to read it!!
