LITTLE SECRETS - 5/5 STARS!!! - I devoured this book in only two short sittings! It‘s super suspenseful and well written. It kept me hanging on to the last page. It begins with a child abduction and spins into a web of lies and so much more. If you enjoyed one of her other books that I loved, Jar or Hearts, this is the book for you! Though I will say this one is slightly less dark than Jar of Hearts, but still ohhhh soo good! Pub date: April 2020!

#chance #solvingcrime
“Contrary to whats often happens,no unequivocal intervention of chance,no dramatic turning point was involved. That kind of chance had no part in the events, and yet chance was nevertheless a factor, a constant presence, in the sense that every price of information came at the right time and in the most straightforward, natural way. “ Maigret, now retired. solves a puzzling situation brought to his door step on Chrismas Day.

Summary: A group of friends gather together to celebrate the New Year at an isolated lodge in the Scottish Highlands. The group arrives right before a huge blizzard moves in (cue the creepy music). Two days later, one of them is dead.

Thoughts: Overall not a bad atmospheric mystery/thriller. I enjoyed the fact that the author kept the reader guessing at who got murdered and who did it. The ending left me with mixed feelings.

Book 1 in HP winter magical readathon.I modified the rule😲I had to read a 500 pages book, well I read 2 books instead😉A gothic romance, suspense, mystery thriller book.Plot can be predictable but you forget about that because it was beautifully written. It can be boring for some people because it is very descriptive and slow in the action but I loved it.It caused me anxiety at some point. Cheesy end but I didn't care😍3.9⭐️Thanks @mabell

Well my #bookreport matches my weekly forecast! Finished Never Have I Ever (entertaining thriller, wont win literary prizes), finished Among the Ruins, great series so far, great characters and learned a lot about Iran.
About half way through The Hunting Party and I know a few people haven‘t liked it but I‘m really enjoying it. Out tonight so probably won‘t finish until tomorrow.

Cinfhen Well done 👍🏽 and you had a busy week so bonus points!!!! 7h

This book cover is GORGEOUS! 😍 I can‘t stop staring at it! Have any of you read this one? It came out in October. It sounds deliciously creepy! Thanks to @HarperBooks #partner for this copy. Checkout the praise it‘s gotten 👇🏼

“An atmospheric and surprising debut…an ongoing theme of misdirection flows throughout, maintaining the tension and suspense.” (Booklist) “[This book is]...for readers fond of gothic-flavored tales.” (Publishers Weekly)
