Slaughter writes a good thriller. The murders are brutal and the chase for the killer is twisty with several surprises as the tale unfolds. It takes a while to get its footing, but that‘s not surprising for the first book in a series. I‘ll definitely pick up the next, but (and I know this is blasphemous) I may like the TV show better, at least for now. This has one of my least favorite plots and I‘m horrified and sickened by the crimes in it.

Like an afternoon spent with an old friend, catching up and hearing all the news of the village. Such a treat. And, I remembered very little. I love Miss Marple and her debut here is so good. Plus, the Vicar's narration is particularly delightful. Looking forward to chatting about it with #thegoldenagecrimeclub tomorrow. Also, marveling about how so many mysteries that came after echo bits of this.

I feel flummoxed. This was my first Hoover and while I give it props bc I flew through it (in 4 hours), I don‘t know what that says about the quality of the writing. What started as epically dark just got cartoonish as the pages went by and don‘t get me started on the lack of characterization & the over abundance of porn. Seriously. Every chapter porn. And not even good porn, like Wattpad-porn. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

I‘m thinking Hoover‘s not for me.

The.Great.Catsby She isn't for me either. However, I did like this one. But haven't liked her others. 2h
Melismatic I take public transport & see so many people reading her daily. I‘m kinda bummed I didn‘t enjoy it that much. 😂 @The.Great.Catsby (edited) 2h

Finished!! This was a hard one to put down. I enjoyed the story line and it was full of plot twists. I did have a bit of a hard time understanding all of Elon‘s choices and actions knowing her Detective background but it was still engaging and well written. The epilogue hooked me and I‘m excited to pick up Sarah Pearse‘s The Retreat as soon as I can!

First bingo!!!! 💖 Was rough getting through Earth & Blood, so it's definitely a nice reward. I'll try to see if I can get through an audiobook for one more.

TheAromaofBooks Yay bingo!!! 3h

It snowed a lot since yesterday so I have spent my hours since getting home from work reading another masterpiece by Louise Penny. Her Gamache books never disappoint. 5/5

A dark & disturbing Nordic noir! This mystery was thoroughly entertaining, but it went a little off the rails in the end. No spoiler here since it‘s in the blurb, but I would have preferred the mystery remain focused around the husband. (That was an interesting situation!) Instead he is killed off and thereafter it felt like a distinctly separate novel. Nonetheless I‘d like to try another on audio.

Seems an appropriate activity as I finish listening to tagged book. 🧶
