I just tried this on audio but had the bail after only a few minutes. The narrator pronounced ‘the‘ as ‘vuh‘ and the word ‘booth‘ (as in a cafeteria booth) as ‘boof‘. I couldn‘t cope!

I hadn‘t checked my actual real-life library for any #ToB books, only Libby and Scribd, and it seems they have a few. This is one of them although it‘s on loan for the next few weeks, but at least I can read a hard copy and pronounce words properly in my head! 🤣

Cinfhen This was an Audible deal yesterday, and I had to pass after listening to a sample. I believe it‘s read by the author but his accent was difficult to understand 😥 I‘m sure it‘s great in print!! I‘m NOT a fan of short stories so this will probably be a pass for me if it makes the shortlist (edited) 1d
squirrelbrain I checked my Audible too @Cinfhen, in case it was a different narrator, but it‘s the same. (It‘s not the author - it‘s someone called Jason Sean) 1d
Cinfhen I see that now. 😉 1d

BarbaraBB I want to read this because of its cover and @Megabooks review long ago. But I‘ll maken sure not to read it in audio! 1d
Megabooks It is a good book, and @Cinfhen about half are interwoven, I know you like those better. @squirrelbrain @BarbaraBB I generally prefer to read short stories in print, so I‘m glad this was a #botm choice! Sorry the audio was 💩 (edited) 1d
Cinfhen Hmmmm, that does change things @Megabooks 1d
julesG Makes my ears bleed just reading about it. 1d
Ruthiella Will definitely read in print then! 1d
Crazeedi @squirrelbrain did you erase??? 16h
squirrelbrain @Crazeedi no I haven‘t touched it, although maybe Jules has seen it too as she‘s an hour earlier than me so may have seen it. 16h
Crazeedi @squirrelbrain a new one up, and cant find the other, so she must have 16h
Crazeedi @squirrelbrain thank you Helen. I'm so stupid. I never fail to screw up my month!! 16h
squirrelbrain No worries @Crazeedi - at least it‘s sorted now! 😘 I only noticed as Caroline is a good friend of mine! 😁 (edited) 16h

I can see why this was a #BOTM pick! I literally couldn‘t put it down and stayed up WAY too late to finish it in just about one sitting! Juniper returns to her small Iowa hometown, ostensibly to help her friend & librarian but also to put a stop to a podcast looking to highlight the brutal murder of her neighbors 15 years ago- where her brother was the key suspect. Weaving together past and present, this one moves fast & is impossible to put down!

Solid thriller. I liked the rural setting and the complicated family dynamics and the spare writing. Also love good twisty ending. I will read more from this author! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #BOTM

Excellent! Spooky vibes. Kept me guessing 'til the end. 🕯🔮 🏚

I didn't love the resolutuon of the almost love story, but this isn't a romance and the author's decision made sense.

I‘m soooo excited for my December #BOTM picks! I also already had “The Holiday Swap” audiobook on hold from Libby. I hope I get it before Christmas! (Isn‘t the cover for “A History of Wild Places” stunning?!)
