#EverythingIsJustBeginning #ErinBartels #BookSpinBingo

Book read - 20 pts
Party, snow, New Year - 15 pts

Total pts - 205 pts

On the night of December 31, 1989--as the Berlin Wall is coming down, the Soviet Union is inching toward democracy, and anything seems possible--Michael will cross paths with the accomplished and enigmatic young heir to a fading musical dynasty, forever altering both of their futures.

EadieB This is a very interesting book by Erin Bartels about Michael who goes to a New Year's Eve party that his Uncle Mike was invited to and he meets his next door neighbor, Natalie, who is the daughter of Deb and Dusty Wheeler who are famous guitarest-turned-producer and singer and songwriters from the past. 11h
EadieB Natalie who is blind and Michael become great friends which lead them to starting a band and doing a concert. There is a plot that goes along with this that is one that kept me reading until the very end. It is a great story with great characters and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I'm now looking forward to reading the next Erin Bartels. This one will be published 1/17/23. If you love stories about music then I am sure you would love this book. (edited) 11h

The Terracotta Dog | Andrea Camilleri
post image
Pickpick

#TheTerracottaDog #AndreaCamilleri #WinterReadathon

The Terracotta Dog, the second book in Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Montalbano series, opens with a mysterious tête-à-tête with a Mafioso, some inexplicably abandoned loot from a supermarket heist, and some dying words that lead Inspector Montalbano to a secret grotto in a mountain cave where two young lovers dead fifty years and still embracing are watched over by a life-size terracotta dog.

EadieB Montalbano's passion to solve this old crime takes him, heedless of personal danger, on a journey through the island's past and into a family's dark heart amid the horrors of World War II.
This one is better than the first book even though I gave the first book 5 stars. I loved this book. It was a great story and the characters were quite unique. The plot was good and trying to figure out who placed the bodies in the cave was interesting.
2d
EadieB I love Montalbano and all his humorous antics and phrases. The Terracotta Dog is followed by the third title in this satirical and humorous series, The Snack Thief. I am really looking forward to the next installment. If you love humor with mystery then you will love these books. 2d

#TheAngelMaker #AlexNorth #WinterReadathon #BookSpinBingo

Bell, present, believe, candle - 20 pts
Book read - 15 pt
Total pts - 95

This book is about the mysteries of fate, the unbreakable bond of siblings, and a notorious serial killer who was said to know the future. Katie Shaw lived a charmed life until the day a violent stranger changed the fate of her family forever.

EadieB Years later, Katie gets a phone call: Chris has gone missing and needs his big sister once more. Detective Laurence Page is facing a gruesome crime. All leads point back to two old cases: the gruesome attack on teenager Christopher Shaw, and the despicable crimes of a notorious serial killer who, legend had it, could see the future 3d
EadieB I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot was one that kept me reading until the satisfying ending. The characters were unique and very believable. I had read Alex North's other two books and was excited to receive an ARC in the mail for The Angel Maker. It lived up to be everything expected and then some. If you like paranormal books then you would love this book. Pick it up to read and see what you think. Not published until February 2023. 3d
Andrew65 Sounds a good read. Yet to read a book by the author. Well done 🎅🎅🎅 3d

#TheShapeOfWater #AndreaCamilleri #BookSpinBingo #WinterReadathon

The Shape of Water is the first in Andrea Camilleri's wry, brilliantly compelling Sicilian crime series, featuring Inspector Montalbano. The novel is set in the Sicialian town of Vigata, the body of engineer Silvio Luparello is found at the Pasture, a trash filled empty place populated only by whores and drug dealers.

Finish any other book - 15 pts
Angel - 5 pts

Total - 40 pts

EadieB The coroner‘s verdict is that he died from natural causes that Salvo immediately discounts. The plot begins to unravel and I am quickly reading until the very end. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, The Terracotta Dog. Andrea Camilleri writes with humor that creates a funny police procedural. If you love humor with mystery then you would love these books. 4d

#CautionDeathAtWork #RhysDylan #BookSpinBingo

A dark past casts a deep shadow.
Evan Warlow is back in the saddle as a DCI, though he isn‘t yet sure he deserves to be, and there are others who share his doubts.
When a brutal attack on two mountain bikers in the vast solitude of the Brechfa forest leaves one dead and the other badly injured, the hunt is on for the killer.

EadieB And though the evidence points firmly in one direction, an open and shut case soon becomes murky and unclear.
It‘s not the first time bad things have happened in these woods. Things that some have tried desperately to forget. But for the killer, it‘s more a matter of unfinished business.
5d
Tove_Reads Will get to it later this month! 5d
EadieB Unless Evan and the team can outwit a vengeful and clever murderer, someone else is going to die.
This is the 2nd book in the DCI Evan Warlow series. I read and enjoyed book 1 called The Engine House. Evan is walking his dog Cadi when he comes to Brechfa Forest and discovers a dead body of a motorcyclist, Andrew Geary, and another man, Rob Hopley, which is transported to the hospital and will be going home soon.

#CharactersOfHuffinfield #TinaMarieLLamb #BookSpinBingo

With the crazy edicts of the new Police Superintendent, Inspector Deighton is counting the days until he can retire. Then he is assigned to investigate what sounds like a prank, something about a bird tethered to a little girl‘s hat. The complainant is Lady Carmella, new in town.
Deighton pays Lady Carmella a visit. Her story prompts his recollection of the Circus Troupe.

EadieB He explains the people she saw were her neighbors, a retired circus troupe, engaging in stage pranks. He relates how their antics caused quite a stir when they first moved to town. Lady Carmella wants to believe him.
Two days later, the Chief Inspector returns the case to Deighton when Lady Carmella is found unconscious.
The craziness ramps up.
6d
EadieB Hijinx, hardened criminals, meat pies, racist violence, ex-KGB, blackmail, vigilantes, cockroaches, human cadavers, police corruption, beheaded sheepdogs, candle light vigils, water hoses and greenhouses…all begin to emerge. Deighton needs to figure out what is happening in the Town of Huffinfield. Not everyone wants the truth uncovered. 6d
EadieB This book starts out like a quiet little book but the further you get into it, the further it proves to be a crazy book about drugs, police corruption etc. The people that Lady Carmella go to visit are a retired circus troupe posing as drug dealers and they drug her. There are other things going on in town as the book moves on but the drugs are the most important thing going on. 6d
EadieB The Town of Huffinfield is like any other town with crazy characters and you soon realize that as you read on. In the end a new police chief comes in and things settle down and it's time for the next book in the series. 6d

#TheNightTheLightsWentOut #KarenWhite #DoubleSpinBook

Recently divorced, Merilee Talbot Dunlap moves with her two children to the Atlanta suburb of Sweet Apple, Georgia. It's not her first time starting over, but her efforts at a new beginning aren't helped by an anonymous local blog that dishes about the scandalous events that caused her marriage to fail.

EadieB In a town like Sweet Apple, where sins and secrets are as likely to be found behind the walls of gated mansions as in the dark woods surrounding Merilee's house, appearance is everything. But just how dangerous that deception can be will shock all three women. 2w
EadieB The Night The Lights Went Out alternates between 1930's depression era Georgia and 2016 Sweet Apple Georgia. There are 3 leading ladies; Merilee Talbot Dunlap, divorced single mom, Alice Prescott Bates, Landlady Sugar Prescott, and Heather Blackford, socialite and beautiful. 2w
EadieB It is full of humor, southern charm and wisdom. It is also engaging and entertaining. There are friends to meet, stories to uncover, secrets to share and mysteries to solve. A really great book. 2w

#NotAHappyFamily #ShariLapena #BookSpinBingo

In this family, everyone is keeping secrets--especially the dead. Brecken Hill in upstate New York is an expensive place to live. You have to be rich to have a house there. And they don't come much richer than Fred and Sheila Merton. But even all their money can't protect them when a killer comes to call. The Mertons are brutally murdered the night after an Easter Dinner with their three adult kids.

EadieB Who, of course, are devastated.
Or are they? They each stand to inherit millions. They were never a happy family, thanks to their capricious father and neglectful mother, but perhaps one of them is more disturbed than anyone knew. Did one of them snap after that dreadful evening? Or was it someone else that night who crept in with the worst of intentions?
2w
EadieB It must be. After all, if one of your siblings was a psychopath, you'd know. Wouldn't you?
This book is a major family drama. They are all lying and could have killed their parents. Your job is narrowing it down to find out who did it. There are chapters with POV's from each character and I kept changing my mind. They are all guilty as far as I was concerned but in the end it is a surprise who did it!

#ItsAlwaysTheHusband #MicheleCampbell #BookSpinBingo

Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny. They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, even though they are as different as three women can be. Twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge... and someone else is urging her to jump. How did things come to this?

EadieB As the novel cuts back and forth between their college years and their adult years, you see the exact reasons why these women love and hate each other—but can feelings that strong lead to murder? Or will everyone assume, as is often the case, that it‘s always the husband? 2w
EadieB This is a psychological suspense novel. It is a twisty page thriller that kept me reading. It alternates between the time at college and the present time. The characters are not nice and you don't know if you can believe them. It's slow in the beginning but then turns quicker towards the end. I didn't really care about any of the characters and therefore didn't really enjoy the book that much. 2w

#EmmaInTheNight #WendyWalker #BookSpinBingo

One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn't add up.

EadieB Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister's return might just be the beginning of the crime.
This is a psychological suspense novel about the Tanner sisters disappearance. It is a slow-reveal as Cass comes home to tell the story.
2w
EadieB Cass is an unreliable narrator as she isn't telling the truth. The story is about narcissistic personality disorder and how it manifests in a dysfunctional family. The characters are very manipulative and the plot is one that keeps you reading to the satisfying ending. You just need to read this book. If you love psychological suspense then you will love this book. 2w

#TheFamilyAtNo12 #AnitaWaller #BookSpinBingo

When Janette answers the door to a potential customer looking to board his dog, she never imagines he has nefarious plans. But minutes later he‘s dead and in her cellar. Weeks later she realizes she‘s pregnant. And so she becomes Mother and the baby Child, and a hidden life begins. But all secrets come out eventually.

EadieB This was a very interesting book. It had me gripped from the start. The brutal rape of Janette and then the birth of her baby which she kept in a small bedroom. Janette was a complex and evil character to her child. I found the book well-written with an amazing twist in the end. The unusual plot was written in three parts. First part talked about the rape and the murder. Second part was about her pregnancy and birth of the child. 2w
EadieB The third part was about the child's teenage years. The book had a slow start in the beginning but later took off. The psychological and physical abuse played a big part of the story. If you love books about psychological abuse then you would love this book. I would like to thank Boldwood Books and NetGalley for a copy for an honest review. 2w

#MysteryAtSouthwwodSchool #BookSpinBingo

Eve Mallow is happy when she‘s asked to cater Founders‘ Day at Southwood School. Natalie Somerson, ex-pupil and professional gossip, is the guest of honor, but nobody seems to want her there. So why was she invited? Natalie is soon found dead in a locked attic room. Eve‘s boyfriend, Robin, becomes the police‘s prime suspect.

EadieB Eve starts to investigate everyone with a stake in the school. Is it the prudish principal, worried about Natalie‘s influence? Her former teacher, whose life Natalie made miserable? Or the head girl, who seemed to hate Natalie one day and adore her the next?
This is the 9th book in the Eve Mallow series. I haven't read another book in the series but that's not a problem as you can read them as a standalone too.

EadieB I soon found that I was not able to put the book down as it was a cozy mystery that kept me on my toes. There were plenty of plot twists and I kept changing my mind about who the murderer was. I found Clare Chase to be an excellent writer. I would like to thank Bookouture and NetGalley for a copy for an honest review. If you like cozy mysteries then I know you would love this one! 2w

The Railway Murders | J. R. Ellis

Pickpick

#TheRailwayMurders #JREllis #BookSpinBingo

A puzzling locked-room mystery that puts someone Oldroyd loves in terrible danger. One of the film‘s stars has been shot dead in a train carriage while the cameras rolled outside. Scouring the victim‘s past for clues, Oldroyd soon unearths a string of heartbroken lovers and a mountain of unpaid debts, each adding to the growing list of suspects. This was not my first book in this series.

EadieB I have also read book 1 of the series which was a great introduction to the series. I enjoyed this book as much as book 1. This book was a locked-room mystery which was most interesting and really threw them a curve ball. I did enjoy the beginning of each chapter where they described different movies with railways in them. In the end, the mystery was solved and I was satisfied how the book turned out. 1mo
EadieB If you like locked-room mysteries then you will love this book. I would like to thank Thomas and Mercer and NetGalley for a copy for an honest review. 1mo

#TheLastParty #ClareMackintosh #BookSpinBingo

On New Year‘s Eve, Rhys Lloyd has a house full of guests. His vacation homes on Mirror Lake are a success, and he‘s generously invited the village to drink champagne with their wealthy new neighbors. But by midnight, Rhys will be floating dead in the freezing waters of the lake. This is a psychological thriller that shifts from the past to the present. We hear from all the different suspects.

EadieB Lots of secrets are being kept. The plot was such that kept me reading all the way to the very surprised ending. If you like atmospheric psychological thrillers then you would love this book. I would like to thank Sourcebooks Landmark and NetGalley for a copy for an honest review. 1mo

#AllTheWickedGirls #ChrisWhitaker #BookSpinBingo

Raine sometimes complains that nothing exciting is ever gonna happen in Grace again. Daddy told her careful what you wish for. Everyone loves Summer Ryan. She‘s a ray of light in the struggling small town of Grace, Alabama- especially compared to her troubled sister, Raine. Then Summer goes missing. This is a dark and atmospheric novel with points of view by Summer and Chief Black and Raine.

EadieB Raine is bound and determined to find her sister. The local Sheriff‘s Department is looking for her too. If you love mysteries with a dark atmospheric theme, then you will love this book. I look forward from this author a new book with the same type of features that keep me hooked until the end. 1mo

The New Rector | Rebecca Shaw

#TheNewRector #RebeccaShaw #BookSpinBingo

The New Rector introduces Peter and his wife Caroline to the village. Peter is the new rector. He is young, vigorous and very handsome. The problems of the village become his concern and one in particular as the newly widowed Suzy Meadows turns to him for comfort.

EadieB This was a very enjoyable read about all the characters in a small English village. There are lots of problems with the people who live here and the rector helps solve some of the problems but some of the problems are concerned with him and his wife. If you enjoy reading about small English villages then you will love this book. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series as it picks up right where the last book left off (edited) 1mo

#GraniteKingdom #EricPope #BookSpinBingo

With an engaging cast of characters, Granite Kingdom is a complex yet balanced look at the granite industry and newspaper business in rural Vermont in the early 1900s.
It is 1910, and the northern Vermont village Granite Junction is the nation‘s largest supplier of finished granite for construction. Newspaper reporter Dan Strickland, a stonecutter‘s son who hopes to find the right wife and climb the social

EadieB ladder, finds himself caught between the village‘s two big granite producers, George Rutherford and Ernest Wheeler.
This book was very interesting and I learned a lot about the granite industry while reading the book. The newspaper business in rural Vermont also played a big part in the granite industry with Dan Strickland as a stonecutter's son. I look forward to reading another book by Eric Pope as this one was very well research.

The War Nurse: A Novel | Tracey Enerson Wood

Pickpick

#TheWarNurse #TraceyEnersonWood #BookSpinBingo

Dozens of young women were asked to lay their lives on the line during the Great War. Can she protect them?
Julia Stimson, Superintendent of Nurses, recruited 64 nurses to relieve the battle-worn British, months before American troops are ready to be deployed. The young nurses will face a challenging situation.

EadieB The primitive conditions, a convoluted supply system and horrific battle wounds are enough to discourage the most hardened nurses. This book is based on a true story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to my next book by this author. If you enjoy historical books then you would love this book. It is a historical novel by Tracey Emerson wood that takes readers on an unforgettable journey through WW1 in France. (edited) 1mo

#TheLostColonyMurderOnTheOuterBanks #JohnRailey #BookSpinBingo

This is the true story of a murder that happened in the summer of 1967 when Brenda Joyce Holland disappeared on the OuterBacks on North Carolina. She was a mountain girl who had come to Mantco to work in the outdoor drama The Lost Colony. Her body was found five days later, floating in the sound.

EadieB This riveting narrative, built on unique access to the state investigative file and multiple interviews with insiders, searches for the truth of her unsolved murder. This island odyssey of discovery includes seances, a suicide and a supposed shallow grave. Journalist John Railey cuts through the myths and mistakes to finally arrive at the long-hidden truth of what happened to Brenda Holland that summer on Roanoke Island. 1mo
EadieB This was a very good book and one that leaves me thinking about her and her unfortunate murder. I look forward to reading another book by this author as he did a great job writing about this mystery long after it happened. 1mo
Andrew65 Sounds good 👏👏👏 1mo
