So much more than a crime book. It also looks at the way a cop can become obsessed with solving a crime and the guilt that comes with that.

As won the Swiss Crime Award. Will publish in the USA on January 3, 2023.

11th book for #Winterreadathon and last book for 2022.



SamAnne On my list. 1mo

Thanks to #netgalley and #randomhousepublishing for the opportunity to read and review this book #RemainSilent by @SusieSteiner
Pub date June2,2020
Book 3 of the Manon Bradshaw series did not disappoint. I love that the author shows Manon with all her foibles, and her character flaws. Manon is just like all of us, with the running commentary in her head. The plot of the book revolves around a suicide of a refugee who is part of the labor ⤵️

Crazeedi imported to do the backbreaking work others wont do. It is tragic to read that people are used as slave labor in this time. The side plots of Manon and her friends lives adds so much to this book.i highly recommend 3y
Crazeedi Side note, the author was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma as she was writing this. She is in remission after brain surgery at this time. What courage❤ 3y
Freespirit Wow amazing..how brave 3y
Crazeedi @Freespirit yes, she wrote a bit about it at the end of the book 3y

It took until the 65% mark for this book to get interesting but once it did, I couldn‘t put the book down. Lots of twists although none really shocked me, it was still a fun way to spend a few hours. A grifter, an influencer, a handsome hustler, a family fortune, a lifetime of deceit and a con that might destroy them all. #NetGalley #ARC #RandomHousePublishing available April 21

Tex2Flo That's a big commitment to have to get to 65% before you were sold. Not sure I'd have endured it. 3y
Cinfhen I read the first 25% then I skimmed a bit and when I got to the 65% point I was solidly sold @Tex2Flo had it not been a review copy I may have bailed😆I‘m glad I didn‘t though. 3y

Thanks to #netgalley, #RandomHousePublishing, and #BallantineBooks for the opportunity to read and review this fantastic book #TheBookofLostFriends by #LisaWingate Publication 4/7/2020 This book will touch your heart deeply. The year is 1875 and Hannie Gossett is dreaming of the time before the war when her mother, brothers and sisters are all torn from her and sold on the way to Texas. Fast forward to 1987 when Bennie Silva ⬇️

Crazeedi arrives in a little Louisiana town to start her job teaching at a poor high school. These two story lines are seamlessly woven together with beautifully written prose. In between each chapter is an ad place in the paper, of someone who is searching for their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters. You will be changed as Hannie helps the her half sisters search for their father in wild Texas, ⬇️

Crazeedi and Bennie sees the promise in the students who have been put down and made to feel worthless. Excellent book.

Hestapleton I‘ve got a netgalley copy of this book and you‘ve made me so excited to read it! 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz Hmmm not too sure about this one.. It was a 3.5 for me... Felt the issues were too broadly discussed and didn't leave an impact I was hoping for, but it did leave enough for thought, though not for long... 4y
Reviewsbylola I will def be reading this one. 4y
Cinfhen I get what you‘re saying @Jee_HookedOnBookz the ending was a little trite but overall this book still left me gasping. It was extremely realistic and felt very relevant\ current. I‘m still calling it a total pick 🌟🌟🌟🌟 4y
Cinfhen Can‘t wait to hear your thoughts @Hestapleton 💥 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Cinfhen oh! I did like the ending though.. Thought it was very realistic! I know majority didn't like it but I did 😅 4y
Cinfhen Funny @Jee_HookedOnBookz the ending was my least favorite part 😂😂 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Cinfhen 🤣🤣funny how just one book can bring up so many different opinions! This is why I lurrrrrve reading!! ❤️ 4y
Cinfhen Yes!! Always!!! @Jee_HookedOnBookz 💕🙌🏻📚what was your last favorite read??? 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Cinfhen Where The Crawdads Sing 🙂 Yours? Also may I have your email add pls? I have a little idea in my head about our opposing views on this book and thought of sharing it with you, if you don't mind 🙂 4y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Cinfhen oh sorry it was Once Upon a River! Crawdads was before that haha😅 4y

Art of Leaving: A Memoir | Ayelet Tsabari
post image

Thank You #NetGalley & #RandomHousePublishing for this remarkable memoir. I highlighted the crap out of this one. This collection of essays resonated with me on so many personal levels; daughter, mother, expat, Jew. Though we were born & raised oceans apart, and we lived such different lifestyles, I still felt a strong connection and familiarity amongst the pages of Ayelet‘s life. The sights, sounds, emotions were so strong, I was swept away.

Cinfhen @Billypar add this to your memoir list for 2019 ~ it‘s brilliant 4y
LauraBeth Wow - this sounds great! 4y
Billypar Ooh, will do: - thanks for the heads up! 4y
