The Line Between by Tosca Lee @toscalee@howardbooks @simonschuster #travelingsistersread #BookBloggers #askthetravelingsistersaboutourreads #askusaboutourbook

The Line Between by Tosca Lee

Read The Line Between, save the bacon, save the world!!!!  Don’t miss out on this! It’s not your typical dystopian and apocalyptic novel.

From the moment we received this extra fun book mail, we were so intrigued and excited to read The Line Between.  We wanted to share this reading experience with a few of our friends and were very excited when a few of our Instagram friends joined in on reading and discussing this one with us.  The story made for an excellent discussion and we highly recommend for buddy reads or group reads.

Norma’s review

Intensely entertaining, an unexpected gem & a gripping page-turner!

THE LINE BETWEEN by TOSCA LEE is a fascinating, chilling, action-packed and an engaging apocalyptic thriller that had me on the edge of my seat in anticipation for the entirety of reading this novel.  I found myself fully engrossed and absorbed in this tale which was part of an end of the world type of scenario along with a twisted doomsday cult. The cult perspective totally fascinated me and I found the storyline extremely thrilling to read without any unnecessary disturbing or graphic scenes.  The telling in itself is what made this book so thrilling and exciting to read.

TOSCA LEE delivers a fantastic, intriguing, unique, well-written and plotted read here with an incredibly suspenseful storyline, an interesting and angst-driven setting, and believable and realistic characters.  Our young main protagonist here was such a driven and dynamic character that I absolutely loved right from the get-go and right down to her name, Wynter. The race to save the world and the bacon (inside book joke) was just as intense for us readers as it was for Wynter and Chase.  I was fully invested in these characters and rooting for them all the way.

The story is told in alternating chapters between the past and present day which I thoroughly enjoyed equally and thought they complimented each other so well and flowed perfectly.

There were quite a few scenes in this book that I thought was extremely well-written and very meaningful but one that really stood out to me that I feel like I should mention is this one………

“What did you mean, ‘Welcome home’?” I ask.

“Did you see his hat? Guy’s a Vietnam vet.  They didn’t get the kind of respect or homecoming the military do today.”

The dialogue of that scene made me pause to reflect and it just really resonated with me.

Brenda’s review

The Line Between has all the elements to make it an exciting yet moving dystopian thriller but without any disturbing events and unrealistic scenes or Zombie’s walking around.  The actual apocalyptic storyline is realistic and a bit frightening and there is an added interesting storyline here with the cult. There is some action, a conspiracy and a little romance going on. There is some drama here to move the story forward that some of us found a bit unlikely to happen however this didn’t affect how they felt about the story.  It just left us questioning some things.

Tosca Lee does a great job creating a very interesting and likable character here with Wynter Roth.   She is vulnerable yet driven. I loved the dynamics between her and Chase. As the world sinks deeper into madness Wynter races to save the world. The tension builds and I was on the edge of my seat as I was rooting for Wynter every step of the way. I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough to that very satisfying ending.

Lindsay’s review

 A suspenseful, fast-paced, action-packed thrilling ride!

Wynter Roth is in her twenties when she leaves New Earth, a dark and controversial cult that she has called ‘home’ since she was a child.   She enters the real world at the same time that a strange outbreak of an unknown disease is rapidly overtaking the country, causing early onset dementia and death. After reuniting with family friends from long ago, Wynter finds herself in the possession of secretive and highly valuable samples that need to get to a lab hundreds of miles away.  Facing devastating personal losses along the way, Wynter surges ahead on a dangerous and unpredictable journey of self-survival, aiming to resolve the nation’s shocking epidemic.   

This novel took me outside of my comfort zone and I loved it!  I am not one to read ‘end of the world’ type books, but this one had me hooked.   I felt this could actually happen and it had my heart pounding.   The tension was palpable, the suspense was addictive, the writing was excellent!  The characters were unique and left a lasting impression that I am sure I will be thinking of long after I write this review.

From Christina’s review

For me, the first half of the book was more enjoyable than the second half.   While I loved Wynter’s character, I felt that she became slightly unrealistic in the sense of what she was capable of after just escaping a sheltered life in a cult.   Regardless of this, I was still rooting for her throughout and continued to feel an urgency for her character to accomplish her feat.  For Christina’s full review

This book, was NOTHING like I expected it to be. The synopsis definitely drew me in initially, but I was skeptical to say the least when I began this story. However, Lee really proved her skill and wove an intricate story that doesn’t just tell one fascinating story, but two, in tandem with one another. This is told in a somewhat typical flash-back format, with the reader both learning about before Wynter’s banishment from the Enclave as well as a current timeline, after her banishment. I couldn’t decide at any point throughout reading this which I liked more. They each had their own elements that drove me forward with a need to see how this story would progress.

From Dana’s review

The plot of this story is intense, a fast-paced page-turner you won’t want to put down. I have always found cults extremely fascinating and this book did not disappoint. The cult leader definitely gives the reader that uncomfortable vibe that has come to be expected with that lifestyle. Wynter Roth, on the other hand, stole my heart. She was dealt a bad hand in life, was forced to face her obstacles and overcome them. I enjoyed watching her character grow and evolve throughout the story.

The Break Line by James Brabazon @BerkleyPub #BookBloggers #askthetravelingsistersaboutourreads #askusaboutourbook

The Break Line by James Brabazon

Brenda’s review

Now Available!

The Break Line is a fast-paced complex political spy thriller with plenty of action and violence to get your heart pounding. There are some gasp-worthy moments that could get your adrenaline going or leaving you gasping in shock and needing some recovery time before continuing.

James Brabazon creates a fascinating character here with our smart, cold and dangerous assassin Max McLean who grows a conscience and starts doubting his orders. Max is quite the hardcore character. The tension rises and it becomes unpredictably interesting as Max starts to question his mission.

James Brabazon really knows how to draw you right into the action with those vivid descriptions to the setting as well. The story is quite vivid with those combat scenes and at times took on a theatrical feel for me. Things started to move quite fast for me and there is no holding back on some of the gore to the violence. I started to get a little lost with the pace and I became a bit distracted while reading and some of those gory scenes left my mind wandering away from the violence.

I highly recommend for readers who like an action-packed and fast-paced spy thriller. It’s sure to satisfy.

Thank you so much to Elisha at Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to read an advance reading copy of this novel.

Talent by Juliet Lapidos @HBGCanada @littlebrown @travelingsistersread #BookBloggers

Talent by Juliet Lapidos

Norma’s Review

Smart, unique and clever!

TALENT by JULIET LAPIDOS was an interesting, steady-paced, and quirky story that was a little structurally & mentally challenging for me to read. The blurb states that this is a “wickedly funny debut” novel that I definitely didn’t find funny at all or it went way over my head. I kind of lack the sense of understanding the dark humour here. 

JULIET LAPIDOS delivers an intriguing and well-written read here that I really wanted to fully embrace and love. I have this need to broaden my reading horizons and one of these days I am going to thoroughly “get” these types of novels. I love the challenge of reading them even if I do find them a bit grueling to read. 

I wasn’t able to really feel any emotional connection to the characters as I couldn’t connect with the academic side to the story. I missed a lot of the dark humor here with that to thoroughly immerse myself in this storyline. I just didn’t “get” it. Although I was totally entertained and engaged with the narrative, moving this story forward to keep me turning those pages. 

Brenda’s review

I feel like Talent can best be described as an academic literary thriller and is something I have not read anything like before. Like Norma mentioned I do like to challenge myself by reading more books that require me to think differently. I do think it took on a bit of a psychological feel to it as well as some of these characters were unreliable and manipulative. At times it felt a little bit like a psychological playground with the characters. The writing took on a bit of a chaotic feel to the story. It also felt a bit eccentric. Now that can be a good thing and I think here it was, however, the whole storyline was not something I was familiar with. The longest piece of work I have ever done is probably this review and I like to stick to reading fiction and not textbooks. lol

Our main character here, Anna is a grad student struggling to write her dissertation. After an encounter with a stranger, she acquires unpublished notes by a deceased talented author. Anna delves into his notebooks and things got a little chaotic for me with the different formats used to write this story. I also should have focused more on the characters and questioned their reliability instead of trying to figure out the academic dark humor of a grad student. I am not going to say anymore as to not say too much about this story.

I recommend this one to readers who like an intelligent story that explores more of academics and delves into some dark humor around Grad students.

Norma’s Stats:
Cover: Eye-catching, artistic, appealing, and distinctive. I actually quite love this cover and think it’s a great representation to storyline.
Title: Intriguing, interesting, and wish that I was talented enough to have “gotten” this one. LOL 
Writing/Prose: Well-written, entertaining, engaging and smart. 
Plot: Challenging, complex, interesting, thought-provoking, steady-paced, and entertaining. 
Ending: An ambiguous ending that I’m still not exactly sure that I interpreted correctly…..but I’m not so inclined to actually worry about not getting it though and just accepted it for what it was. 
Overall: Even though I didn’t end up loving this novel, I still appreciated and enjoyed the rugged escape that this book provided. 

Thank you so much to HBG Canada / Little, Brown Company for sending us a physical ARC of this book to read and review!

The Eulogist by Terry Gamble @HarperCollinsCa @TerryGambleWri1 #travelingsistersread #askthetravelingsistersaboutourreads #askusaboutourbook #BookBloggers

The Eulogist by Terry Gamble

Brenda’s Review

Terry Gamble weaves some divisive issues here with race, slavery, and abolition of slavery with some real historical people and fictional characters. She creates an interesting family and I really enjoyed the family drama and dynamics between the characters. The writing and the story take on a lighter side to it as we follow Olivia’s journey from a woman unaffected by these issues to strong women with a sense for justice.

Terry Gamble creates an interesting character here with our main character Olivia. She is fearless (maybe a bit too much), strong, smart and engaging. I grew to really like her a lot. Even though I enjoyed these characteristics of her, I felt she didn’t really provoke much emotion from me and leaving me wanting a bit more emotional depth to the story.

As I was reading this one I was a little distracted and found it hard to keep my focus and I would of liked to have seen more depth to some of the issues explored here to drive the story forward for me.

The end left me thinking wow but not the way you might think. A lot of explanation for the story and characters happens in a few pages that left my head spinning. I would of liked a few more clues along the way instead of it all being told to me at once. I don’t think I was the only one because after reading this one we and our Traveling sisters had a few questions for each other.

Overall I enjoyed this one and I recommend it to readers who like to keep things light by not delving too deep into issues and enjoy some interesting family drama.

Norma’s review

Fascinating, passionate and compelling!

THE EULOGIST by TERRY GAMBLE was an interesting, steady-paced, and subtle story that I sort of have some mixed feelings about. At times the story really grabbed me and I was totally interested in what I was reading but then at other times I was a little lost with the author’s choice of words and found myself a little impatient to get to the heart of the story. 

TERRY GAMBLE delivers an intriguing and well-written read here that was definitely an enjoyable and entertaining one but I felt like I wasn’t always invested in what I was reading through. The story seemed to jump around a little and where this story I felt was historically reliable in it’s telling it missed to actually fully immerse me in the lives of these characters and these so important times from history.

Thank you so much from both of us to Edelweiss, William Morrow/HarperCollins and Terry Gamble for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book to read and review.

Angela’s review

An Irish immigrant family arrives in Ohio in 1818 and their future in America is told through the lives of the three children through 1890. The writing is very good and without being overly descriptive, I felt as though I was there in all of the scenes. James, the eldest tries to establish a candle making business. His brother Erasmus takes to drink and the road as a preacher. Their sister Olivia was my favorite character, a strong woman with convictions about the role of women and about the injustices of slavery. She also was inquisitive and engaged in scientific endeavors with a doctor who becomes her husband. While I connected with Olivia from the start, the story seemed to move a little too slowly and I was impatient for the abolition activities to happen and to see how this family gets involved in helping slaves to freedom. It did pick up and I found myself invested also in the story of Tilly, a young slave who comes to live with Olivia and her husband Silas. From a historical perspective, it feels very accurate – the position of women in society, slavery, the cholera outbreak. Things are revealed about family members that connect them to the slaves that they try to bring to freedom. Besides, Olivia there were other admirable women, Tilly, the young slave, Hatsepha and Bethany, her sister’s in law. While the history is aptly reflected and there are strong women characters, the story seemed to jump around and didn’t feel that there was a cohesive plot.

Norma’s Stats:
Cover: Intriguing, lovely, reflective, surreal and a fitting representation to storyline. 
Title: My feelings on this title has kind of left me feeling a little bit baffled and indifferent but it did definitely initially intrigue me though. 
Writing/Prose: Well-written, entertaining, telling, engaging and broken. I did quite enjoy the writing style but did question some of the narrative though. 
Plot: Engrossing, interesting, anticlimactic, steady-paced, and entertaining. 
Ending: A lot was explained and happened quickly in the last few pages but I was satisfied with the way the story wrapped up though.
Overall: Even though I didn’t end up loving this book, I still appreciated and certainly enjoyed the mellow escape that this book provided.

The Suspect by Fiona Barton @figbarton @BerkleyPub @about_thethrill #travelingsistersread #askthetravelingsistersaboutourreads #askusaboutourbook #BookBloggers

The Suspect by Fiona Barton is now available!!! The Suspect is the third book in the Kate Waters series. Our main character journalist Kate Waters is again on a new story here making this one a good one for a stand-alone.

Today we are linking up with Kim @It’s All About The Thrill and sharing our thoughts for The Suspect by Fiona Barton. Pop on over to her blog and see what she has to say.

Brenda’s review

Because of my fear of missing out on people thoughts, we read this one with a few of our Traveling Friends and Sisters and we had some mixed feeling here among us. We first read and discussed this story in our Instagram group and then we followed the thoughts of our Traveling Sisters as they read it. We really enjoyed seeing a few different thoughts on this story and I have added a few different thoughts from our group members here for all to see.

The Suspect explores one of a parent’s worst fear here, however, taking a bit of a different premise to it with the missing children being adult children. They go missing after taking a gap year and traveling to Thailand. I was intrigued right from the start as it played on one of my worst fears of the reality that we can’t keep our adult children safe and the fear of them becoming lost to us. Not only by the dangers around them but also lost to us by not knowing where or how they are really doing.  This lead to a very interesting discussion with some of us who shared the same fear. We connected a bit differently to the story then others did.

The story started off a bit slow and the suspense builds as we start to see some twist and turns. We could see some coming and a few that we didn’t that left us thinking oh that’s a great twist. Adding some fun and entertainment to the story and our discussion.

We see a personal side to our main character here Kate Waters and I really enjoyed the personal conflict she had with her loyalties that left us questioning what we would do in her place.

Overall we all enjoyed this story however a couple of us struggled a bit with the way the story was written. It took on a documentary feel to it. The chapters are short and the POV change often. For some us that made it bit harder for them to connect to the story and the characters. For the rest of us, it added some suspense to the story that drove the story forward for us. We recommend giving it a try and then come back and let us know what your thoughts are.

Norma’s review

Intriguing premise, short chapters & a suspenseful mystery!

Can you enjoy a book even if you don’t connect with the way a book is written? Fiona Barton is an author that I always find myself a little excited to read but I wouldn’t necessarily say that I enjoy the way she narrates her stories though. I find the narrative a little bit indifferent and challenging but I wouldn’t say that it hinders my reading experience all that much though. If so, it’s minimal and it definitely doesn’t stop me from picking up her next book offering. Weird I know! 

THE SUSPECT by FIONA BARTON is a slow-building suspenseful crime thriller that takes you on quite the intriguing journey that clips along at a nice swift pace. I was immediately intrigued within the mystery here and the short chapters definitely helps to move this story forward quickly. I absolutely love short chapters because they make me feel like I have to read just one more chapter. 

FIONA BARTON delivers an entertaining and interesting read here that is told through multiple perspectives with chapter headings labeled “The Reporter”, “The Mother”, “The Detective” and “Bangkok Day ?” from Alex, one of the missing girls. I really enjoy and love this format but I felt like there was something missing though to make me really connect and feel for these characters. I found Alex’s perspective the most interesting and would have liked to have read more of her story. 

Thank you so much to Elisha at Berkley Publishing Group and to Fiona Barton for the opportunity to read an advance reading copy of this novel.

Lindsay’s review

An extremely addictive, twisty and fast-paced journey.

Kate Waters, a determined and successful reporter, travels to Thailand to investigate the disappearance of two eighteen-year-old girls from her home town. The girls were on a backpacking trip, with a jam-packed itinerary and plans to be in touch with their parents every couple days. Their parents notified police after several days of not hearing from either girl. This leads to an investigation by the Thai police and then involves local Detective Inspector Bob Sparkes and his team who travel to Thailand to pick up the pieces that seem to be missing.

I am so sad to be finished this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this thrilling and suspenseful story, where I hungrily devoured every single word in extreme anticipation of what would happen next. The characters, setting and storyline pulled me right in from page one. Each chapter left me feeling an urgent need to continue on and fit another chapter in. I loved Kate Waters and DI Sparkes! I enjoyed their personalities and thought their personal side stories really enhanced the novel.

When I downloaded this ARC, I didn’t realize it was part of a series. I read Book #1 “The Widow” a few years back and enjoyed it, but didn’t love it. I haven’t read Book #2 “The Child”. This, being Book #3, is completely fine to read as a standalone. I feel that the author, Fiona Barton’s, writing is much more smooth and engrossing in this novel, compared to “The Widow”. I look forward to picking up “The Child” to see how it is in comparison and I look forward to Book #4!

Thank you to Edelweiss, Penguin Books and Fiona Barton for providing me with an ARC to read and review. 

Some thoughts from our friends and sisters

From Diane’s review

Told from the perspective of three different characters, one being posts from one of the dead girls. There was just something about this format that kept me from totally connecting to the story. There were many positives, a reporter who becomes part of the story, a moral quandary pertaining how far one would go to protect her child. One big twist in the story that I didn’t see coming. The format though, read more like a documentary, which made it difficult for an emotional connect. I just never really felt the characters. Was more a tell not feel. So for me, this was a good story, different plot, a locale, Thailand, that I have read little about, just wish I could have felt more.

From Christina’s review

Not only are these parents worst fears realized but they’re thrust into immediate limelight in the worst way. As they’re grappling with the reality of their situation, they’ve also become a worldwide source of entertainment.The Suspect is told from multiple POVs – Kate Waters, DI Bob Sparkes, Alex’s mother Lesley and Alex herself. Switching up the perspectives really kept the stories forward momentum chugging along in a way that was at times sluggish and at others built suspense like Jenga blocks waiting to be toppled.

While I enjoyed Barton’s storytelling, her writing and her ability to build some serious suspense I still found myself a bit let down by this novel. As the story progressed and the tension and suspense built up, and the forward progression sped along I found myself enjoying it much more than I had anticipated. I did enjoy this and once it got moving I found it quite compelling, I just wish that it had been a bit more developed and had grabbed me from the start. For Christina’s full review

From Heidi’s review

Barton vividly evokes not only the atmosphere of the Bangkok hotel the girls find themselves stranded in, but also of the nightmare of parents trying to find answers to their questions in a foreign country and a culture very different to their own. I found all her characters authentic and believable, and particularly enjoyed Kate, who I discovered has featured in two previous novels (which I will certainly read now). Whilst some aspects of the mystery did not come as a total surprise, the final reveal still packed some punch and gave a lot of food for thought. For Heidi’s full review

Norma’s Stats:
Cover: Eye-catching, intriguing, mysterious, and a fitting representation to storyline. 
Title: I really like the title of this book and how it played obscurely into storyline. 
Writing/Prose: I am not going to elaborate on the writing because I wasn’t able to connect and fully enjoy it. I read this with my Traveling Sisters and I was the only one that felt this way. 
Plot: Interesting, intriguing, predictable, fast-paced, and entertaining.
Ending: Satisfying but I have questions and wonder what is next in store for Kate.
Overall: There is something about her books that I just find so appealing and readable. Would recommend!
