Review: Kisscut

Kisscut Kisscut by Karin Slaughter
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This just wasn't my cup of tea. The subject matter was horrible and it felt very scattered with too many characters and complicated plots.

Review: The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues

The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues by Edward Kelsey Moore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Supremes, Clarice, Barbara Jean and Odette, who featured in Mr. Moore's first book are now in their sixties. Each are having issues with family and situations but as usual with these lifelong friends, they are always there for each other.

A wedding has brought a famous Blues musician, El Walker, into town and James, Odette's husband discovers that he is his long lost father. El has lived a very hard life and knows that he can't right the wrongs, but is brave enough to face his old hometown.

It was lovely to read about these friends again and to see the roads that their lives had taken. I enjoyed this book as much as the first book in the series.

Review: The Good Daughter

The Good Daughter The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Twenty-eight years ago Charlie and Sam's mother was killed in front of them and they were chased and attacked. The continuation of the story about Charlie's life continues until she is drawn into another attack at the school where she is meeting someone and a child has been murdered.

This probably could be a good story but I was appalled that the same story was told three more times throughout the book.

I gave the book three stars because I did keep reading.

Review: The Store

The Store The Store by James Patterson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book reminded me of The Stepford Wives. Everything and everyone is controlled by "the store". The story didn't have the "wow" factor for me, but I did finish it so that is saying something.

Jacob and his wife Megan decide to write a book detailing the store and how it is controlling everyone basically in the US as far as I could gather. They have an ingenious plan in order to throw people off the track because the store will not allow this book to be published. The management want to keep people reliant on the store and I wondered if it was a bit like communism. (no offense to anyone).
