Cartier's Hope | M.J. Rose
Panpan

I will probably be against the majority, but I hated this book. I didn't like the main character. She got on my nerves. I also thought the book would be more about Cartier and the Hope Diamond.

This book for s fiction based on facts about a murder in the Arkansas Delta. I live in East Arkansas, only 20 miles from the town this murder took place in, of course the author used made up town names, but I knew the town he was going talking about, because I knew about the club he mentioned. It was an ok book. 2 1/2 🌟

Skip it if you a smart. I devour True Crime books, but this is far from an Ann Rule or John Douglas book. Felt as if I was sitting in a classroom being lectured to. I have been reading it since Monday and am giving up. Not even 40% done.

Let's Hope for the Best | Carolina Setterwall

My opinion only:. Don't waste your time. She wrote a personal story, that at the beginning, she was a bitch. At the end, she was whinny and a brat.

I Will Make You Pay | Teresa Driscoll
Mehso-so

I am so tired of predictable endings. Starts out with a good premises and well-written, but the ending was so predictable. Plus, what is it with all different authors using Multiple POV's now? Am I the only one tired of this? Giving it a so-so bc it was well-written.

Wow! A thrill ride with twists and turns. Just how far would you go to protect your family? That is the question. Would you go as far as Simon does?

Purgatory Bay | Bryan Gruley

This was diabolical. The use of the technology makes you think that this could actually happen. A girl preceived she was wronged 12 years ago, and the steps she takes to get even are unbelievable. Suspense filled.

I found this book to be so fascinating. I figure it must have been hard to write, since so little is known about Mary.

I had to choose this because If Nobody Listens Part 2 isn't listened. This is a Norwegian Thriller that is action packed. I don't know how the author did it, put Part 2 was even better than Part 1. Rikard Sommer is a good writer. Can't wait to read more from him.

Such a good book. You start out thinking it's aboSuch a ut a computer company trying to get started and come away with a whole different story. I don't want to say to much in spoil it, but I highly recommend this book. Especially, if you like suspense. This is a slow burn that will have you on fire by the end! Can't wait to read Part 2. Thanks for the book Netgalley!

Who Was Jack the Ripper?: All the Suspects Revealed | Members of H. Division Crime Club
Pickpick

I know you are probably thinking another Jack the Ripper book. This one is different. It's wrote by the H Division Crime Club. They have compelling reasons why they think they know who Jack the Ripper was. Of course it's one of the great mysteries and you have to wonder if it will ever be solved.

When We Were Brave | Karla M Jay

A book about actual events during WWII that few people know about. It's fiction based on actual events told from 3 different POVS. Faulk, a German Officer; Izaak, a Jewish boy, and Muller, a German American. Highly recommend

All I have to say, is before you start this book make sure you have everything you need at hand, peace and quiet, a comfortable place to read, bc you want want to put this down. One if the best series out there. Slaughter continues to hit it out of the park with the Will Trent Series.

A Magical and Whimsical coming of age book in the 1980's. This book will throw heart punches one moment and the next moment make you laugh. Jake reminisces about the summer he turned 12, faced his bully, and found out things about his Uncle Calvin he never knew.

I have to stop finding new series to read. This is the 2nd one in the Clare Carlson series. Now I have to buy the 1st one.
A dead homeless woman, a scandalized Senator, a Billionaire, a Criminal Lawyer, a Homicide Detective what could these 5 people have in common with a murdered Financial advisor? Great Book!!!
