Suspense Square
The Last Thing I Told You - Emily Arsena... The Last Thing I Told You - Emily Arsenault

Way back when I first joined Goodreads, I won the first or second book by this author in a giveaway.  I didn't like it.  The writing was good, the plot was meh. I didn't finish. I put the author on the "perhaps try later" mental shelf.

 

MyBookBox included this recent release in its Aug 2018 shipment, and the book is much better.  It concerns a small town that is recovering from a mass shooting, a young woman, and a dead shrink.  The story is told via the detective trying to solve the murder and the young woman who is a prime suspect.

 

The pace is a bit slow, but the real suspense comes from the unrooting of secrets.  The writing is gripping and the book is a solid good read.

The Christmas Wishing Tree. An Eternity Springs Novel - Emily March

A cute, delightful, holiday romance that was sweet and innocent.  The characters were good, the plot was entertaining, the pacing was believable, and the passion was very very very tame.  Several kisses, but nothing else. In that department it lacked what I look for in a good romance.  If you like the tame and sweet romances, then this is perfect for you.  If you prefer to have some steam coming of the pages, go into this book expecting to be let down.  If I knew going into it that it would be tame, I would have been ok.  I did like the plot.  I did enjoy the characters and the conflict.  I did enjoy the story. But I do like to have passion in my romances, so that was the only let-down to this book.

Her dad is my mom. "Stop this art crap and find a real career. Artists are only famous after they die." Fuck you.

This book is the first time I will ever call anything haunting. It's also striking close to my heart with the suicide issue.

The Astonishing Color of After - Emily X.R. Pan

Today is board game day in this house, so I checked this out of the library. I got the hardcopy from Book of the Month. I think the cover is so pretty. I plan on cross stitching and listening to the audiobook while I work. Double duty. That way the boy nerds can play Catan or whatever and I can do my own thing. I've had a virus of some sort this week and haven't felt well at all. I'm still weak. I just wanna relax this weekend.
