The Killer’s Family by Miranda Smith

The Killer’s Family by Miranda Smith

Published: 2022

Pages: 310

Rating: 5 stars

Type: ebook 

Source: Free ARC from Netgalley

Three sisters are devastated by the sudden death of their father only 6 months after they buried their beloved mother. But that was just the beginning of their ordeal.

After the funeral, they discover some evidence that their father was no other but the local legend serial killer who has never been caught, Gemini. They choose to keep it a secret but it eats them up from the inside and drives them apart.

A year later, each is dealing with what they uncovered in her own way, some in denial, some in research, and some in self-destruction.

Then the killing starts with the same old Gemini method which makes the sisters rethink what they believed for the past year. Was their father really Gemini, was he framed, or was he covering for someone?!

It was a wonderful fast-paced ride that I totally enjoyed and didn't want it to end, even though I wanted to know what happens and who the killer is. It had some twists and turns that I didn't see coming and some surprises. 

The ending was good and fulfilling, but there was an open-end question that I wished to know the answer to.

I really wish this book would turn into a TV series, I'm sure it will be a blast!

In the end, I thank Netgalley and Bookouture for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The Redemption (Filthy Rich Americans, #4) by Nikki Sloane

The Redemption (Filthy Rich Americans, #4) by Nikki Sloane

Published: 2020

Pages: 288

Rating: 5 stars

Type: ebook

Oh My God!!!

This is the Climax after the previous books.

I've hated Macalister in the first three books and just couldn't sympathize with him at all. I was happy when he fell out of grace and was locked up in jail.

This book starts mainly after he was released 2 years after the third book.

He gets to meet Sophia Alby, and although she wasn't a very main character in the previous books she is the star of this book. She changed Macalister in a way I never thought possible. He became an amazing guy because of her!

I've read the 4 books back to back and can't get enough of the Hale's. Now I already bought the next book to see what happens next with Macalister and Sophia plus the story of Vance.

I can't recommend this series enough!! It's AMAZING!!!!!

Rating: 2 stars

Type: paperback/softcopy

تقديري المبدئي للكتاب كان نجمة بسبب التطويل والحشو لتطويل القصة وملئ الصفحات فما هو الداعي لتكرار اسم كل شخص الثنائي (الاسم الأول واللقب) تقريبا في كل ذكر للشخص حتى أصبح شيئا مستفزا. وما الداعي من ذكر رقم رحلة الطائرة وشركة الطيران ووقتها وتاريخها بالدقيقة في كل مرة.

اما الأخطاء الإملائية فحدث ولا حرج بالرغم من انها الطبعة الثانية للكتاب والمفروض تكون منقحة.

اما النجمة الثانية فكانت بسبب النهاية غير المتوقعة وقد تكاد تكون الشئ الوحيد الذي أعجبني في الرواية.

ملخص القصة ماتت امرأة مسنة مقعدة في الشارقة واتهم بقتلها عدة أشخاص وتدور الأحداث بعلاقتهم ببعض وبالمرأة ومن ياترى القاتل من بينهم. قصة دارت بين الإمارات والمملكة العربية السعودية وسوريا.

اول مرة اقرأ للكاتب وقررت الا أعيد التجربة.

The Bastard Prince by Alix Nichols (It's Raining Royals #2)


The Bastard Prince by Alix Nichols (It's Raining Royals #2)

Year Published: 2021

Rating: 5 stars

Type: ebook

This is the second book of the Evorian Royals and although I did not read the first book I didn't feel that I missed anything, so it's quite a stand-alone book. But now I do plan on reading the first one so I would know what happened with the first brother.

Arnaud is a plastic surgeon who just got out of a relationship, but who has a reputation of being a playboy. He is approached by unknown to him people claiming to be his close family and that he is an Evorian Prince, and asking for his help to save their country.

Sasha is a reporter who is looking for a big story, so when she goes to the Film Festival and meets Arnaud she tries to dig deeper to know more about him and the Evorians.

A partnership between them evolves and they go around on a treasure hunt around France for keys to save a secret kingdom hidden in the hills between France and Italy.

It was exciting and charming at the same time. I totally enjoyed the interaction between Arnaud and Sasha, they are an adorable couple and the chemistry between them is amazing.

I was caught up in the story from the first page; the characters, the storyline, the setting, it was just amazing.

It's the first time for me to read by this author and it won't be the last.

I thank Booksprout for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

High Risk by T.S. Maynard & W.J. McNally

High Risk by T.S. Maynard & W.J. McNslly

Published: 2021

Pages: 103

Rating: 5 stars

Type: ebook

"Jim Sloane, a successful business executive, finds himself locked in his 50th-floor office over the Christmas holiday." 

This is totally my worst nightmare to be locked through the holidays at work with no way out.

From the beginning, I was caught and just had to know what happens to Jim. Although he is not really the perfect person to his family, colleagues, or friends I got attached and wanted him to find a way out. With every clue he assumes a person in his life is responsible I think yes that should be him, then another clue comes up and it could be a totally different person. Just kept me guessing till the end.

"The higher the climb, the further the fall…"

I loved this book and would recommend it as a fast read with a few twists.

New to me authors, will look for more books!

I have been MIA for quite a few years but I'm planning on getting back on the wagon again. I was thinking of making a new blog for the new challenges I'm planning on joining for 2022 but since I'm out of tune for a long time and a lot of things changed in the blogging world since, I decided to continue here in my old blog and just chill, relax and not waste time with new designs and stuff.

So for 2022 I'll be joining in a few challenges that I would like to keep track of and be accountable for.

Phoenix Stone by Roxanne Leblanc

Phoenix Stone by Roxanne Leblanc

1st in the Stone Brothers series

Published: 2021


Ratings 4 stars

The book started great with the tension between Juniper and Pheonix. It was incredible from the first time they lay eyes on each other and the attraction was instant but each of them was fighting it for their own reasons.

Juniper is a single mother to 2-year-old Cross and she is very careful of who enters his life so she has been single since conceiving him.

Pheonix is the eldest of the Stone brothers, he is fond of his single life and does not was to love or commit like EVER!

I liked most of the characters, especially Pheonix's brothers. There were moments when I was smiling from the funny dialogue.

A lot of twists and turns in this novel which I enjoyed mostly except that the love scenes kept repeating and it seems they turned into bunnies. It was just too much and with nothing new.

The unnecessary angst Pheonix was dealing with was annoying and the ending was rushed with a cliffhanger.

I might continue with the series since the other brothers are interesting.

Thanks to Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
