I was hoping to finish this book by the New Year, but I can not get into the story line. It is all over the place. I usually love Kristin Hannah, but this book isn‘t her best. I am on chapter 12. Does it get any better?

What a great book this was. I put off reading this book due to all the negative reviews on Amazon. Readers have said it was awful writing and nothing but a political book. However, I read it with an open mind and fell in love with the story of Elsa and the hardship she went through with her children during the Great Depression and Dust Storms. Elsa proved that a mother‘s love will win against any fight. I most definitely recommend this book.

I loved this book.

a young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying with a new college friend

One year later, a writer moves into a cottage Known locally as the Dark Place, the dense forest is the writer‘s favorite area for long walks and it‘s on one such walk that she stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, “DIG HERE.”

Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple?

The story takes place overnight in a library when five people get stranded due to a massive snowstorm. Each person has their own dilemma. As the storm rages, they get to know each other in more details They say never judge a book by its cover and the same should goes towards people as well. The only bad part about the story was the use of the GD word quite often. Words like that make me cringe.

I enjoyed the Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell and decided to try this book. The first half was slow and I didn‘t like the characters. The story picked up in the middle but I also figured out how the story was going to end before I got to it. I do recommend this book if you like mysteries.

This was an okay book that my daughter recommended to me. Nora tries to commit suicide due to her depressive life. Instead of dying, she is caught in between worlds know as the midnight library where she has a chance to review her book of regrets. She also gets to choose different lives to live based on books and must make a decision on which life makes her the happiest and wants to continue living in or ultimately dying for good.

This really was a great book by Kristin Hannah. As with her other books you know something major is about to happen but it still feels like a rollercoaster of emotions. This story was about the 30 year friendship of Tula and Katie and the ups and downs of the friendship. Even though I knew how it would end, it left me in tears. Definitely a must read book but not on your lunch break when you have to answer coworkers questions why you are crying.

This was a good book but the characters were getting me confused. Next time I read a large book like this I will keep a book journal with the characters names. I loved how the story was told by different characters from past and present.

GondorGirl Kate Morton is one of my favorite authors! All of her books have duel timelines and most have a large cast of characters. 5mo

When I first started reading it, all I could think of how very similar it was to Verity by Colleen Hoover. While I continued reading it I kept thinking this is exactly like Verity so I knew how it would end. However I did get confused if Victoria was just as bad or was innocent because I couldn‘t stop thinking how it compared so much to Verity so I gave it three stars.

I read this book in one night. I couldn‘t put it down with the twists it had. I also felt sorry for Hannah and learned more about mental illness than I thought I knew.
Hannah knows there's been a mistake. She doesn't need to be institutionalized. What happened to her roommate at that summer program was an accident.
Then Lucy arrives. Lucy has her own baggage, and she's the perfect project to keep Hannah's focus off all she is missing at home.

After artist Claire Beaudry Chase is attacked and left for dead in her home on the Connecticut coast, she doesn‘t know who she can trust. But her well-connected husband, Griffin―who is running for governor―is her prime suspect.

I give this book 4 stars. Even though I figured out who the antagonist was early on, the story plot made me want to keep reading to see what happened at the end. there were surprising twists to keep the plot interesting

After the end of her marriage, Kate has retreated to her parents‘ home on Lake Superior to pull herself together only to discover the body of a murdered woman washed into the shallows. Tucked in the folds of the woman‘s curiously vintage gown is an infant, No one can identify the woman. Except for Kate. She‘s seen her before. In her dreams.

Wonderwoman89 I wish we could post longer reviews. I mostly read Romance and YA but lately have been drawn to these kind of mystery books that enter twine the present to the past and brings the whole story together in the end, so if anyone could recommend similar books as this, I would greatly appreciate the recommendations since I don‘t know what else would be a hard to put down book. 1y
inthegreensandblues I've enjoyed some similar books by Sarah Maine and Kate Morton (I think Morton does this style a lot?). This list has dual timeline stories from different genres- https://www.bustle.com/p/13-new-books-with-dual-timelines-that-combine-the-past-... 1y

The book is highly recommended if you like twisted novels. Libby turns 25 and inherits a mansion in London where she learns about her families past including what happened to the three bodies found in the home that were all dressed in black and upstairs a 10 month old baby crying in her crib. This book was hard to put down.

It has been two months working the front line and trying to adapt to a new norm; but in between hectic work schedules and trying to teach an 8 year old, I have been able to start a new book even though there are days I can read only two pages or none at all. I do have to admit I have read more Childrens books than anything lately. Here is to hope that life gets back to normal but hey isn‘t that what life is all about?

Cilkas Journey is part two of The Tattooist of Auschwitz. After surviving the Concentration Camp Cilka is sent to a prison in Siberia. Cilka must do things she doesn‘t want to including sleeping with guards in order to survive. Cilka gets the attention of a female doctor who teaches her to be a nurse where she meets a man named Alexandr who teaches her that she can love. Although the story is part fictional it is still a good story

Finished this book in three days. I gave it four stars because some of the wording was hard to understand. It is the story of a Holocaust Survivor and his experience in the prison camp from horrible beatings to finding love Some of the story is gut wrenching and is so incredibly sad to read. It makes you wonder how anyone can be so cruel and heartless.

This year has been very hectic and I am no where near my yearly reading goal which has depressed me and I gave up on reading for awhile We also had to get emergency custody of our 8 year old grandson and now we are fighting for full custody which is very time consuming. So this New Year I decided to get myself a library card instead of buying books and am thinking of not setting a reading goal. Hopefully this will get me out of my reading slump

Lynnsoprano I hear you. We currently have our daughter and 5yo grandson living with us after her divorce. I keep calling it our new normal, but it‘s not. I‘m not going to make my reading goal, either. It‘s not worth it to stress about it. 😘 2y

It was a sweet story. Bella is a single mom raising two boys and running her own business. When Owen, an out of towner, buys the building she is renting, it throws Bella in a serious situation. Not only does she have to find a new building but she has feelings for Owen even though he is the reason her life is falling apart. I gave it three stars because it had a lot of grammatical errors and I don‘t like that when I am reading a story.

This is book 2 of Before The Storm by Diane Chamberlain. It was an overall good book. The ending did leave open questions about what happened to the main characters but maybe that is because she may decide to continue the story later on.
