P. D. James is not an incredibly celebrated author for nothing. She has such skill. Beautiful descriptions, a couple of surprises... great set of stories.

I 😍 the premise of this book - a woman, on the day her life implodes (her husband leaves her for her best friend & takes the kids) finds purpose when she realised that she knows the man at the centre of a true crime podcast - & in a downwards spiral decides that she needs to find out what really happened. As the book progresses & we find out her past and how it connects to the events in the podcast... it all gets a bit soap opera-y.

Cathythoughts It started off well 🤷🏼‍♀️ 23h
Reggie Hmmm you‘ve kinda sold me on it. 10h
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Reggie, only kinda 😂 I‘ll have to work on my description. I‘m probably going to use it in an upcoming library book talk. 10h

This is just about getting a “ pick”. First half is great & promises to be thrilling , but the second half starts meandering & the thriller isn‘t as thrilling .... but I did finish & it was some “light” relief while reading a heavier book.
I‘m using for #tartannoir #booked2020

Cathythoughts @TrishB Thanks! I‘m pleased to have finished some books 😁👍🏻 2d
4thhouseontheleft I was thinking of reading this for #tartannoir. This is a stand alone novel, right? 4h

Cathythoughts @4thhouseontheleft it is a stand alone ... but I‘ve read better tartan noirs ... maybe you have read them though ... if not , just other options ( better , but only in my opinion) 4h
4thhouseontheleft @Cathythoughts Thanks! I haven't read any Tartan Noirs before, so I'll check out those two as well! 2h

Lots of twists and turns in this story. I found it a bit predictable.

This was the one book I struggled to read in 2019. I loved Pretty Little Liars both the show and the books, but I just couldn't connect with this new story. I tried and I didn't finish it, but I'm not a fan.

I mean... we‘ve all read through conversations we should have been paying attention to... I used to read through the majority of my classes 🧐

LittleBug My dad still complains he never knew if I was really doing my homework, cause I‘d usually have a book on my lap that I‘d read instead🤪 4d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @LittleBug, my French teacher used to greet the class and then say ‘Sharni, put that book away‘ 😂 I miss the days when I could read in the gaps of my day 4d
LittleBug Awesome!!☺️🤩 Yeah, I miss those days too... although... I still do it, but there‘s just not that many gaps anymore🤣🤣🤣 4d

🤔 interesting start to a book where the narrator admits to being a liar liar pants on fire *but* they are telling the truth now... 🤨

The second in a trilogy, it raised almost as many questions as it resolved from the first book, but in the most deliciously mysterious way! This author has me hooked! Counting down the days (8) until the third book is released!!!

So this was a weird read. I read the last half in a single sitting - Hooray! 🍰 🥳 But goodness, it just didn‘t grab me. And it should have! From Scotland to London to France, Belgium, Italy! Location scouting was brilliant!

But it‘s supposed to be a new age Who Done-It! Answered by chapter 7! So then it‘s a modern How Come? Chapter 20ish. Okaaayyyy, so what‘s the lemon squeezy, Twisty Sneezy!? Nicely done!

So ho hum! @MrBook #ReadWithMrBook

MrBook Hah! Love this review! Added 🙂. 🙌🏻 6d
Cathythoughts I‘m reading this one at the moment 👍🏻So far I‘m really into it ... 6d

This book certainly garnered a lot of hype! But the main character‘s book obsession and love of true crime podcasts drew me in- and I could hardly tear myself away from listening! The performance is great, too-the accents are wonderful & the fast pace & twisting plot make this a fun read! This completes January‘s #ReadWithMrBook challenge- #OneWordTitle! Glad I revisited this author since I didn‘t care for her #debut! #AuldLangReads #AudioColoring

ljuliel Sounds interesting. Gonna have to look this up. 6d
TorieStorieS @ljuliel I loved the audio! I think I have your email - I will try to send it your way! Let me know if it works!! ❤️ 6d
ljuliel I changed my email a couple months back. I apparently got a virus or somehow got put on a mailing list for NEKKID PEOPLE stuff. Yuk. I appreciate the offer, but if it‘s the Audible onebook thing, I‘ve already gotten one a long time ago, so wouldn‘t be allowed a second. I really do appreciate the thought, though. 💕 6d
TorieStorieS @ljuliel Oh my!!! 😳 I can see why you changed it!! Well I do recommend the audio of this one- the accents are all great!! 6d
ljuliel I‘ll definitely look it up on audio. It sounds terrific. 😊 6d
TorieStorieS @ljuliel I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!! 🤞🤞🤞 6d
