The Life We Bury Book Review

5 out of 5 stars

Read synopsis.

Review:

The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens has been on my To Be Read (TBR) list for ages. I have heard great praises awhile back about it in the bookish community and I am so happy to have finally read it!

I was expecting it to be good and it did exceed my expectations. This book blew my socks off! I love it so much.

Eight Perfect Murders Book Review

Book review by Dinh.

4 stars

Read synopsis.

Review:

This is my first book by author Peter Swanson.

I feel very late to the Peter Swanson fan party. I love to discover new authors to love and having read Eight Perfect Murders I can honestly say I will be checking out more of Swanson’s work. Swanson’s is known for The Kind Worth Killing and Her Every Fear so I will add those to my to read list!

I really enjoyed this cleverly crafted murder mystery.

Review:

This is the first book that I have read by Chris Bohjalian and I am glad that I read The Flight Attendant as an introduction to this author.

I missed my local library book club reading for this book recently and I am glad I read this for our book club.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. What a great way to start the year by reading a suspenseful thriller!

The Clockmaker’s Daughter Book Review

Book review by Dinh.

3.5 Stars

Read synopsis here.

Review:

I was very excited to read The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton for our monthly read. I haven’t read any of her books before and was keen to discover a new author to love.

From the book jacket’s description it seemed like a read I would totally love- one with ghosts, murder and mystery.

But did it meet my expectations? Sad to say, but it did not wow me. I enjoyed the book but it was all over the place.

The Light Of Paris Book Review

Book review by Arlene.

5 out of 5 stars

Review:

“Paris In The Rain Is Still Paris”-Catherine Remini McReynolds, November 18, 1923.

The Light Of Paris will give the readers of this wonderful novel a real glimpse of Paris, the streets, the shops, the clubs, the people, the history, the charm, the love and yes, “The Light of Paris.”

Through the eyes and hearts of the two main characters, Margie, the grandmother when she was young and in Paris as sort of companion/chaperone for a friend and Madeline, her granddaughter, who never really knew her grandmother until she visits her mother’s house and discovers her grandmother’s journals she wrote when she was in Paris as a young woman.

The Last Time I Saw You Book Review

2.5 stars

Read synopsis here.

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

Read synopsis here.

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.
