Traveling Sisters in a Coulee

Traveling Sisters in a Coulee Reading Before I Let You In by Jenny Blackhurst

Before I Let You InBefore I Let You In by Jenny Blackhurst

Kaceey’s review and rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read with Brenda

Three best friends, Karen, Bea and Eleanor. They are always there for each other. In a heartbeat, they’d drop whatever they’re doing to help. I mean, that’s what best friends do…right?

Karen is busy creating a successful psychiatrist practice, and another new client just walked through the door. Only this new client seems to want more than a therapy session from Karen. It’s not long before she realizes this patient will rock the foundation of the tight bonds between these 3 women.

Told from points of view of all three friends. The storyline weaves back and forth between the women as they desperately struggle to hold on to their friendship and their families. Lies will be revealed, leaving all three wondering how well they ever really knew one another. If indeed they ever did.

This was my first read by this author and I just loved how she effortlessly spun the storyline together between these friends. I was joyfully hooked from the first chapter and enjoyed it right to the very end. Highly recommend!

Thank you to NetGalley, Atria Books and Jenny Blackhurst for an ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.

Kaceey’s Review

Wow! Now that my friend, is a thriller!!
Amber wakes up in the hospital, able to hear everyone around her. Only she can’t move a muscle, can’t speak a single word. She is trapped in her own body and has no way to communicate. How did she get here? What happened?

What a finely-crafted whodunit!! It will have you questioning absolutely everything! What’s real, what isn’t! What’s the truth, and what’s a lie!
As the story unfolded and I tried wrapping my brain around the mind-blowing twists, my head actually started to throb! But that’s a good thing with a thriller…right?
Every guess made as to what was truly going on – every theory I conjured up how this would play out…all wrong! Love that.

Alice Feeney has delivered a diabolically twisted thriller that will leave you speechless. Did I mention this is a debut from this author! Seriously! I cannot wait for — follow up! I’m already standing in line.
Highly recommend!

Jennifer’s Review

5 clever blockbuster stars to Sometimes I Lie

Here’s all you really need to know:

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

The very start of the book says it best! From the beginning, you don’t know who to trust or even what is real! I was so excited to read this book with my Traveling Sisters that I couldn’t wait for its release in the US. I had to order it from the UK to get my fix! It was…worth it!

Amber is the most unreliable narrator I’ve ever encountered. This book will have you questioning everything you thought you knew all along the way. I found the premise completely original.

The only fault I found was that, while the diary chapters were necessary to propel the plot forward and connect the loose threads of the intricate web, they were a bit too lengthy.

If you like endings that are tied up neatly, or even endings with simple closure, this book may drive you mad! 🙃 There is quite a bit left to interpretation, and I liked that because it fit with the whole questioning tone of the book. That’s about all I can say. I don’t want to give even the tiniest bit away and spoil the fun for you. Curl up with this blockbuster early in the day, and you’ll be wondering where the time went! 😴

Traveling Sister in a Coulee Reading Missing Molly by Natalie Barelli

Missing MollyMissing Molly by Natalie Barelli

Kaceey’s Rating  4.5 of 5 stars

Review by Kaceey and read in a coulee with Brenda

Rachel Holloway’s community paper is in big trouble. If they can’t cook up some marketing magic to draw in sponsors, the paper will fold. (Pardon the pun.)
When one staff member recommends a podcast, everyone is quickly on-board. They decide to focus their premiere podcast on finding Molly Forster, a girl whose entire family was murdered fifteen years ago. Poor Molly, having vanished, was never seen or heard from again.
And now with the staffs’ podcast choice made, Rachel is suddenly griped with fear. She can’t let this happen! After all, Molly Forster is hiding in plain sight.

“Have you seen Molly Forster?”

There were so many moments that I was lulled into the story, predicting with great confidence where it was going, only to ‘gasp’ as I was launched in another direction. (Touché!) The author has a gift for dispersing pleasant surprises throughout. This one’s going to keep you guessing right to the last page!

The second book I’ve read by Natalie Barelli with one more sitting on my shelf waiting for me. Can’t wait to get to it! Highly recommend!

Thank you to NetGalley, The Last Bureau and Natalie Barelli for an ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
