Review: Two Kinds of Truth

Two Kinds of Truth Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, what can you say except another winner. Harry Bosch is now a volunteer in the smaller police department and is looking at cold cases. Meanwhile a couple who are lawyers devise a scheme involving a criminal that is on death row. Harry was in charge of the case thirty years previously and this couple think they have found a way to get a lot of money by revisiting the evidence and discovering DNA that was missed in the original case.

It was good to see Harry again and how his daughter is making out as well. I hope the series will continue.

Review: An American Marriage

An American Marriage An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Celestial and Roy, a young African American couple, have not been married very long when on a terrible night Roy is accused of rape, found guilty and sent to prison for twelve years.

Celestial waits, but as time goes on she must also move on.

The book takes us through the long years of the imprisonment of an innocent man and his wife, who is also innocent, and how their lives transpire in the interim.

An excellent read.

Review: Behind Her Eyes

Behind Her Eyes Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Louise is a single mom with a part time job in a medical clinic. Adele is the wife of a new doctor, David, who has just started at the clinic. Louise and David's paths had recently crossed when they were drawn to each other while drinking a bit too much in a pub and having a chance meeting.

Adele accidentally meets Louise on the street and they become good friends. Louise has problems with sleeping and Adele has suggestions for her to help her to get some proper rest.

This was quite a twisted story and was a complete surprise in the end chapters.

A very interesting read.

Review: The Wife

The Wife The Wife by Alafair Burke
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

My review will be very unpopular considering how most members love this book.

I was unable to engage with any of the characters in this story. After reading chapter after chapter and wondering if the story was ever going to start, or end, it was all summarized in a very short few pages.

A very disappointing read.

Review: The Woman in the Window

The Woman in the Window The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was quite a ride. A woman with agoraphobia is living an isolated existence. She does have a doctor, a physiotherapist and some websites that she communicates with. She likes to spend her time watching out her window and to see what the neighbours are doing.

The book peels away bit by bit the story of how she came to be in this situation and it is really quite shocking. I would never have know ahead of time, the way you do with some books, what was going to happen next.

The conclusion was completely unexpected.

Review: Please Don't Tell

Please Don't Tell Please Don't Tell by Elizabeth Adler
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I really wanted to like this book because it is in my favourite genre, but it just didn't appeal to me. It seemed to me that characters were shallow. In the early chapters, there was a stormy night and a woman who lives in an isolated home discovered a man, who was bleeding, knocking on her door. She ends up inviting him in for dinner and this was very far fetched IMO. The author tried to deceive us and pull the wool over our eyes as to who the actual murderer was.
