A MUST READ!!

A bombing that killed their parents in 1941 in Dublin put twins Isabel and Aelish in an orphanage run by nuns.

Isabel was rebellious and Aelish was compliant.

Isabel escapes, but Aelish remains and becomes a nun.

A heartbreaking, heartfelt, beautiful book.

♥️ You will LOVE the characters and miss them when you turn the last page. ♥️

REVIEW 3/29

Set in Italy during and after WWII.

Who are my parents?

An excellent, engaging, heartbreaking, heartwarming read that brings us straight into both lives of the characters hoping for the best and wanting to be there with both Sadie and Betty.

You will fall in love with both characters and the storyline as you read of the beauty of Italy and want to get on the next plane.

Where They Lie: A Novel | Claire Coughlan

Pickpick

HISTORICAL FICTION - THRILLER - IRELAND

Where did Julia Bridges go?

How did she just disappear?

WHERE THEY LIE will keep your interest because of the great storyline, the descriptive writing, trying to figure out the mystery, and trying to figure out what the title means.

Does the title mean the lies people tell or where bodies lie?

A bachelor/bachelorette celebration at a haunted hotel gone wrong.

The combined celebration turns into the murder of the groom-to-be.

But where is the bride-to-be?

She was found in the attic covered in blood.

Will have you blaming every guest and every person at the hotel except the bride-to-be, even though she was the main suspect….the spouse is always the first to be looked at.

Friends, enemies, betrayals, and secrets is how we meet women in a woman‘s compound that lives off the grid.

It is a bit confusing and mysterious until the book gets going and things become clearer.

You won‘t be able to put the book down as things get intense and secrets are found out.

Don‘t give up too soon….it is a wild ending. 4/5

LOVE the cover!!

It is post World War II, and we meet Fanny Fabricant, her husband, Max, and their daughter Chloe.

We follow Fanny as she goes to work much to the gossiping of other women at this time because women didn‘t work, but she had no choice.

The ending was satisfying even though it wasn‘t a book I was anxious to get back to. 4/5

THRILLER - MYSTERY

What an ending to this slow burn. It is worth the wait.

Another good one by Ms. Paris as she gives us characters with secrets kept and characters you won‘t want to trust, but can‘t figure out why.

Don‘t miss it.

The Underground Library | Jennifer Ryan
post image

FULL REVIEW 3/13.

Based on a real library and a true event.

London is being bombed, and we meet three women with troubles of their own who want to save the library and its beloved books.

They save the books and the people of the town by moving the books to the Underground after the library is bombed.

The book also focused more on the library and its importance to keep up morale and friendships instead of the war. 5/5

PROMPT: JEWELRY

I thoroughly enjoyed Benedict and felt sorry for him as he worked through living without his wife. His JEWELRY shop and their love just hadn't been enough for them after they were unable to have children after eight years.

A heartwarming read about family and about trying new things.

An uplifting read.

From Scotland to the state of Washington in the 1800s.

The McIntyres fled Scotland and their life of luxury to a life of poverty, struggles, grief, and heartbreak.

Heartache and history in this beautifully written book with great descriptions of the lives of the characters and the setting.

Lots of sweet characters, but of course there has to be one villain. 5/5

Review 3/7

HORROR - MYSTERY - PARANORMAL

Being a good Samaritan doesn‘t always work out.​

A spine-tingling page turner with paranormal scenes and characters with secrets kept from each other and of course from us.​​

I‘m not a fan of paranormal, but I always enjoy how Ms. Simone incorporates it into her books.​​

The ending is a good one. 4/5

Good Girls Lie | J. T. Ellison

THRILLER - MYSTERY - SUSPENSE - YOUNG ADULT

A gruesome opening, and it continues.

GOOD GIRLS LIE is filled with drama, cruel girls, administrators that look the other way, lies, deceit, secrets, betrayal, surprises, and an ending and ending twist you won‘t see coming.

You won‘t want to put it down because it is filled with edge-of-your-seat tension, is chilling, and pretty creepy.

Another well-researched, poignant, heart-wrenching, fabulous, tissues-needed book.

It‘s the 1960s, and we follow the mindset of families and the only solution they think will work for everyone when they find out their daughter is pregnant out of wedlock and the boy wants nothing to do with the girl‘s problem.

Add it to your TBR!! You won‘t want to miss it. 5/5
