I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Supposedly it is quite different from her YA fantasy series. Definitely check out this book if you are into magic and a adultish slightly Harry Potter-esque book. Slight.

Trying to figure out why it took me 10 years to read this book. First I loved it. Enough so that it was hard for me not to turn around and start right over. 2nd, it is confusing to start. So many characters! But don‘t give up it is awesome. I listened to this, but will be buying the book book to have on hand!

I actually really like this one. But this genre is how I learned to love reading and mysteries so it would have been hard to disappoint. I loved the concept of short stories mixed in with overall story and thought it was well done for the most part. Highly suggest reading this if you are a fan of Christie, Highsmith, etc.

⭐️⭐️⭐️
I waffled between 2 1/2 and 3 stars on this one. I mean, to be fair it‘s not bad. I absolutely loved the premise. Definitely did not need it delivered in the form of therapy through fiction. It ended up feeling more like a self-help book than anything else. And that disappoints me. I had been waiting for awhile to read this one

AlisBookNookCorner I absolutely loved this book! I gave it 5 ⭐ I thought it was a wonderful story. I'm sorry you did not enjoy it as much. 2y

I have no clue why I thought it would be a good idea to read this book. But I did. It is haunting and beautiful and sad and hopeful and just wrong that this was even able to be written. Brief synopsis, a young woman is released from the Nazi concentration camps and starts traveling to find her young brother. I don‘t know how people read these books regularly.

Solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Definitely a series I will read more of. Typical cozy mystery. Set in an Asian-centric plaza in Ohio. Typical cozy mystery and a easy audio read when I wasn‘t feeling too hot and didn‘t really want to concentrate on anything. No knitting during this one.

So...do yourself a favor and make sure this book is on your to read list sometime soon. I am not usually one for feel good books but this book was just brilliant. A beautiful love story in so many different ways. I rarely want to see books I like made into movies but I would love to see this as one. Anyone else who has read it have any thoughts?

CBee Absolutely one of my favorite books of all time!! And I only just read it last year - it‘s just that good 🥰 2y
BlueMoonJ @CBee I listened to it on audio from the library, but I think I am going to buy a copy of the book. Definitely will re-read it at some point! 2y
CBee @BlueMoonJ definitely a book to reread again and again!! 2y
