Karen Krupp leads a simple, quiet life. She keeps her house clean and tidy, with everything in its place. Which is how she realizes that someone has been in her house- small, seemingly unnoticeable things are slightly out of place. When she has a car accident, everyone who knows her is surprised to hear that she was speeding and running red lights, something she would never do. Does it have anything to do with whoever has been in her house?

This was recommended in one of my book groups on Facebook and I enjoyed it. It was a quick read, and it had a twist I wasn‘t expecting. If you have Kindle Unlimited it‘s on there #ReadAway2024

OutsmartYourShelf
The Night Before | Wendy Walker

Mehso-so

Laura Lochner is always choosing the wrong men & they always leave her. After the breakup of her latest relationship, she goes to her sister, Rosie's, home in the Connecticut suburbs where they both grew up. Rosie is married to their childhood friend, Joe, & they have a young son, & Laura takes up residence in their attic room.

She decides to take a chance on a date with an older man, Jonathan Fields, & borrows Rosie's car. (Continued)

OutsmartYourShelf Rosie is concerned that Laura is jumping back into dating far too soon & when Laura hasn't returned by the next morning, her concern seems justified. Rosie delays in calling the police though as she is less worried that a man has hurt Laura, & more worried that Laura has hurt him. After all, it's not the first time.

I thought it started off well - the first 100 pages were riveting, but it soon turned pedestrian.

OutsmartYourShelf Laura (who seemed like she might turn out to be a bit of a badass at first) was revealed to be a drip who kept saying that she was going to leave the date as he was not being truthful with her, but kept talking herself into staying. Truthfully Rosie was a more intriguing character. If I had to sum up this book in two words it would be 'daddy issues'. 3⭐ for the good beginning. 14h

June #TBRTarot (choose a book with flowers on the cover) #ReadAway2024 #SeriesLove2024 And the hits just keep on coming! I took a break from this series for a few months and as soon as I started listening to this I couldn‘t figure out why. I still can‘t. 40-year-old Daisy has undergone tremendous changes in her life. I guess it‘s a little warped of me to be so amused about life, death, and Armageddon. But this is funny stuff! What I (cont)⬇️

CatLass007 love about this series is the friendships that Daisy already had, the new friends she makes, and the meshing of the two groups to form a large found family. Unhealthy relationships become healthy and there‘s always room for more new friends. 24h
CatLass007 Also, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are drag queens and in this book we meet Tory, aka Purgatory, a broken woman who strongly resists becoming part of this family. “I work alone.” I hope she lets her guard down in the next book. 24h
CatLass007 One of the things I don‘t like about this series is that every book ends on a cliffhanger. One of the things I do like about this series is that the final chapter of each book becomes the first chapter of the next book. It‘s so much better than “the story so far” or no recap of the previous books. 24h
CatLass007 I forgot to add that I enjoy the pop culture references. And in almost every chapter I get a definite Prince Bride vibe. When someone is asked to do something, the reply is never “sure” or “no problem.” The reply is always “As you wish.” 21h

June #LiteraryCrew #ReadAway2024 Most war stories focus on the men who fight the battles. The marvelous TV show, China Beach, focused on the women during and after the war in Vietnam. I‘m sure it is not the first story told from the women‘s POV, but it‘s the first that I remember. Getting to know the women on both sides of the Trojan War, was enlightening and heartbreaking. I look forward to other books by this author. Recommended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

CatLass007 @Jari-chan Thanks for liking my review. Did you change your profile pic? He‘s a very sweet-looking kitty.🐈 23h
Jari-chan @CatLass007 Thank you 🤭❤️🐱 She's been my profile picture for a while now, I think 🤔 Not sure tbh 😅 22h
CatLass007 You‘re welcome. She is one of the 30% of ginger kitties who is female. Cool. My ginger is a big ole boy. I‘m not sure how much he weighs, but he‘s starting to be shaped like a football 🏈. If he gets a basketball 🏀 shape I‘m in trouble. But he doesn‘t meow. He squeaks. He sounds just like a little squeaky toy. I don‘t know how I missed a kitty profile pic. I usually zoom right in on kitty pics. I am owned by four cats, although I‘m (cont)⬇️ 22h

66/150 While this is the last book of the Phule's Company series, its not really a conclusion in any way. General Blitzkrieg is finally defeated, and Captain Jester remains in charge of Omega Mob, still not promoted to Major. There's was a fun chase across planets as Jester went looking for his missing butler, crossing paths with characters from previous volumes, but in the end it goes full circle back to the starting place. It's too bad ⬇️

RamsFan1963 that more books weren't written for the series, there was still a lot of potential left for more fun adventures. 4 💥💥💥💥 66th book finished for #Readaway2024 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES @Andrew65 1d

I found this to be slow and drag a lot of the time. The last 200 pages it did pick up. Overall, a soft pick at 3.5⭐. I won it on a recent Goodreads Giveaway.
