FULL REVIEW 7/5

From a murder on land to murders at sea.

Lena had been there for them. One she thought she was responsible for, and the others she was set up for.

MISS ALDRIDGE REGRETS is a mystery and family drama all rolled into one. 4/5

FULL REVIEW 6/30.

Why would you harm your little sister? 

Keely and her sister were in foster care since their mother died and both left the care home they were in without permission, but Keely is the only one who makes it out and tells the police her story.

Where is her sister Nina? 

Those readers who “really” enjoy guessing will not want to miss this twisty, creative read. 5/5

**Be aware that child abuse is part of the story line**

FULL REVIEW 6/27.

What could have caused the police to re-open the cold murder case of Emma's husband?

She was cleared as a suspect back then.

Ms. White keeps you guessing and wondering who the murderer is in this marvelous, twisty, hard-to-put-down gem.

I do think my ARC copy had pages missing at the end, though, and the ending sentences were repeated from previous scenes.

Even so, I really enjoyed this book. 5/5

Kat‘s dying father asks her to find his plane and a woman who saved him.

Will she find the woman who saved her father after all these years?

Will she find other things too?

Perhaps things she wasn‘t to find?

A lovely, educational, pull-you-in read. Kat is a great character.

This book was given to me by the author for an honest review.

A search for Dior Dresses from the 1950's - how fun would that be?

Louise's chase to find the dresses leads to finding her grandmother‘s secrets, a love interest for her, and a longer stay and return to Paris.

A very enjoyable read with a bit of a mystery as her grandmother‘s life is unraveled.

A lovely read….and look at that GORGEOUS cover. 5/5
