Maybe my least favorite one in the series. Everyone seemed slightly out of character and I was confused by the change in one characters backstory. It didn‘t help that it was read by another person.

Lena Aldridge is barely surviving as a singer at the Canary, a second rate Soho nightclub. Out of the blue, a man linked to her late father offers her the lead in a Broadway musical. Just in time: her best friend has murdered her husband, implicating Lena in the cover-up. This is an entertaining mystery set in 1936, and largely taking place on the Queen Mary sailing from London to New York. Lena finds herself again embroiled in murders on board.

If characters had been more fleshed out it would have made them feel more alive and kept reading more interesting.

This had two timelines and skipping between them distracted reading flow. This still was somehow intriguing read but slow pacing made everything feel less thrilling.

The story itself was good but the way this was written could have been better. I see potential here and still liked this.

Thanks for recommendation @Sleepswithbooks

Sleepswithbooks I love James Patterson- few of his books are a “Mehhh” 🫤 but luckily that‘s in the minority. Here‘s to wishing better J.P. Reads for you 🥂 2d
PageShifter @Sleepswithbooks I can't say that I wouldn't have liked this one. Didn't love but still liked somehow. I am eager to read more if they just gets better 🤩 2d

Book 4 in the Hawthorne and Horowitz series was my favorite read this month. I‘ve loved all four books in this series.

#readingbracket2022 for November is going to one of my favorite auto-buy authors, Anthony Horowitz and his newest book, “The Twist of a Knife”. Horowitz has such a gift for bringing his characters to life, I laughed and gasped while reading this one and cannot wait for the next installment 🙌

CBee I keep thinking I need to read some Horowitz. Any you‘d recommend I start with? 1w
Aims42 @CBee He has so many books that I haven‘t read, but I have LOVED his two newest series and would recommend either 😁
• The ‘Hawthorne & Horowitz‘ series begins with “The Word is Murder”
• The ‘Susan Ryland‘ series starts with “Magpie Murders”

I love the Hawthorne and Horowitz series. This is book 4 and I highly recommend you read this series in order since past books/cases are mentioned frequently. Horowitz is a must read author for me.

I believe that a well-known anecdote exited to the effect that a young writer, determined to make the commencement of his story forcible and original enough to catch and rivet the attention of the most blasé of editors, penned the following sentence:
“‘Hell!‘ said the Duchess.”
