⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ K.L. Montgomery is a new author to me and now one of my favorite Cozy Mystery writers. In this 3 book boxed set, we meet Sunshine who is the YA librarian in Bryce Beach. Sunshine becomes a sleuth who helps the local police solve crimes. The characters in these books are lovable and the books so much fun to read. I already have Book 4 on my Kindle ready to be read.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A good book about friendship. I enjoyed reading about Jesse and Leslie and their adventures together in Terabithia. It is a frigid tale but so very good.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The story of the shocking murders of Shanann, Bella, Celeste and Nico Watts. The author does a good job of giving us background information on everyone involved. Parts of this book were very hard to read because I cannot imagine this happening to my children or grandchildren. So much senseless loss.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book begins with the death of two teenage boys. It tells the story of those left behind and how they deal with what has happened. It is a wonderful story of forgiveness. I love how the author told the story through the different characters. She used Rufus, the dog, to reach her readers as well. Rufus was an amazing character.

melissajayne The author dealt with a similar situation when working as a mediator 11mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed the book but it was predictable. A woman sees a man that she terms “bus boy” and spends a year looking for him because she cannot stop thinking about him. The story takes a turn when they finally meet.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ One of my all time favorite books!!! We follow two time lines. One follows an Apothecary in the 1800s. The other one follows a woman on her 10th anniversary trip as she discovers The Lost Apothecary.

This book is so beautifully written. I loved every single minute I spent reading it.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Wow! So very good!! Women can only say 100 words per day. Men rule. There were women who tried to worn of what was coming and no one would listen.

I used to believe this type of scenario was impossible. Now this seems all too possible and real.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book was written while Mr. De Wind was in the concentration camps. He would write about what happens on scraps of paper. It was translated into a book after the war. A reminder of how awful human being can be to one another and what we cannot allow to happen again.

I was struggling with the audiobook so I went back and began the book over in Kindle. This did not help so I ended up going back to the audiobook. I just could never get into this book. Not exactly sure why. I just never felt invested. I would not have finished for if it had not been for this being buddy read. I have to start DNFing a book of I am struggling like this.

fredamans Up till now I thought that I was the only one that didn't get into this one like everyone else did. I read her other book, The Singer's Gun and thought it was waaaaaaaaaay better than this one. I hope you give it a try. Totally different premise from this and a book I devoured. 13mo
paulareadsallthetime I am glad to find someone who felt the same way too. All of the others i. My buddy read seemed to like it a lot. I will add the other book to my TBR. 13mo
gilroyc Yes, I felt the same. Couldn't really get into it. Some of the writing style she used just felt ... off and it felt incomplete, like the storyline had more to do when she just stopped. (edited) 11mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️This book tells the story of Lou Gehrig. He was a baseball player who developed ALS and died. I was interested in this because I have watched Pride of the Yankees and my Mom passed away from ALS in 2018.
