Review:

I was excited to read The Last Time I Saw You by Liv Constantine because I had read The Last Mrs. Parrish and loved it for its fast pace psychological thriller.

I was hoping that this follow up book was going to be just as good.

Did it meet my expectations? Unfortunately it did not meet my expectations. I was highly disappointed with the book. To give it to you straight- it was horrible!

Here’s why it was not for me:

The Female Persuasion Book Review

Book Review by Arlene.

5 out of 5 stars

Review:

I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it for any woman to read.

I felt it was spot on in creating a story line and characters that it represented the time period of the early sixties and beyond when women’s lib (as it was called then) took off and there was no looking back. The Women’s Movement was established.

The Seven Or Eight Deaths Of Stella Fortuna Book Review

Book Review by Dinh.

4.5 stars out of 5 stars

Read synopsis here.

Review:

From the title, The Seven Or Eight Deaths Of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames I was thinking a murder mystery but it was not what I had expected. I had read The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton last year and thought it would be something similar, like a who dunnit murder mystery. I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an Italian family saga novel.

This was a debut novel for Juliet Grames and what a great start! I loved this book!

This book is definitely worth reading, and here’s why:
