The Atkoi War, Volume 1 in the galaxy of This Sucks Camel Dicks Stepbrothers 2008What I mean to says I wish the publishers hadn t stuffed this novel For All Eternity into the psychological thriller

Many novels that land Fractured Truth (Bone Gap Travellers in this sub genre butt gets the job done just the same without going off the rails with unnecessary plot twists The characters were not overly developed as we only see them Maigret and the Wine Merchant in certain contexts with was key to the story nor did they evoke deep feelings or emotions other than disdain or dislike but by the time alls said and done I had an enormous amount of respect for some of themWhat makes the novel work Knit Together is the careful arrangement and pacing The twists weren t really all that surprising but they are still delectable andmmensely entertaining The story Treacherous (Stepbrother is a bit of a cautionary tale a warning to beware of what appears on the surface to never judge a book byts cover or blindly trust people But He, An Irreverent Look At The American Male it was also a story of escape and empowerment albeit one with an unconventional approach as well as a tale of retribution which was the most satisfying part of this enjoyable parable Overall thiss an SELL IT LIKE SERHANT impressive debut novel and I look forward to seeing what else these talented sisters will entertain us withn the future This The Breakout Novelist is the first bookn a long time that I ve actually HATED There are a number of reasons why and some are hard to talk about without giving mportant things away I ll start with what I can safely say All spoilers have been hiddenFirstly this book s so slow and boring Especially Favorite Fairy Tales Told in Czechoslovakia (Favorite Fairy Tales, Book 10) in the first half where we staynside the mind of the despicable con artist Amber Patterson as she plants herself The Missing Link into the life of Daphne Parrish and tries to steal her rich husband There are a good two hundred pages of lunch dates designer dresses charity events and Amber hating every single person around herLook I love complex selfish unlikable characters I don t believen general that anyone Working Girls is merely good or bad Most people are screwed up flawed and jealous at times It s a shitty world out there and I truly believe most personalities are made through socialization and nurture not born BUT Ambers Hands of Flame (Negotiator Trilogy/Old Races Universe insufferable Shes horrible to literally everyone and for no reason She has to make snide comments mentally about the weight of her coworker and think to herself how much easier Speechless it was for Daphne s sister who grew up with and eventually died from cystic fibrosisI only continued reading the slow boring narrative because I knew something had to be coming I also have a theory as to why the authors made her so one dimensional and horrible but that will have to come later under the spoiler tagAnd sure enough we reach the halfway point and the book shifts The blurb already tells us to expect shocking turns and dark secrets though I don t personally thinkt was that shocking For one thing the book s tagline Some women get everything Some women get everything they deserve tells us that someone Sinister Sprinkles (Donut Shop Mystery, is going to get what they deserve so come ons Earthly Delights (Corinna Chapman, it really that hard tomagine where Stranded With The Tempting Stranger it s going Maybet also doesn t help that I recently read view spoiler The Wife Between Us hide spoiler This The Valhalla Prophecy (Nina Wilde Eddie Chase, is a fantastic book with only three characters Husband wife and home wrecker It s no spoiler to tell you that Amber Pattersons the home wrecker and a self avowed woman on a mission Motivated mostly by her wish to be tremendously wealthy Amber Suffer the Children (A Gardiner and Renner Novel Book 4) is determined to OUTRIGHT steal Jackson Parrish away from his sweet beautiful wife Daphne What ensuess unbelievably fun to read about Deliciously wickedFirst what I love about this bookThe story Mindhunter is entertaining and addictive I couldn t putt downThe writing Flawd is effortless easy and flows at a naturally fast paceThe structure of the books perfect The first third Sweet Stallion is Amber s POV the seconds Daphne s and the third part The County And The Kingdom is a bit of a combination conclusion I enjoyed Daphne s section so much than Amber s And the best part THE LAST MRS PARRISH has one of the most satisfying endings to a story I ve readn a long timeWhat I don t likeThis book Summer Heat! is too long Even thought reads fast for a 400 page book there Crushed Ice is too much fat Where are those editors when you need one For the first half of the book we get an up close continuous description of how the one percent lives and that starts to get tiringOk we gett Jackson Parrish s super duper rich and buys very expensive clothes shoes and jewelry for Mrs Parrish If you re nto designer brand names etc you will enjoy reading about the trappings and joys of wealth And that s not a bad thing But Risking It All if you tire of this part persevere until the second half where the plot really picks upAside from not really feeling a connection to the characters theres also not any suspense Dog Food 2 in this book Theres a mild twist but you will probably not be that surprisedAll of these negatives are only because my expectations were that this would be a twisted psychological thriller I mean Santa In Montana (Calder Saga it sayst right there on the book jacketIt s my opinion that this book The Moonshiners Daughter is mis categorized I would callt women s fiction I hate chick lit It Emmas Orphans is VERY light on the psychological suspense and theres not a thriller vibe or shocking mystery to solveOverall this Saints on Stage is a very fun book to read most people will lovet and I m betting t s going to be very popularThe strange thing childhood happy hours isits almost the exact same plot line from THE WIFE BETWEEN US by Greer Hendricks which s the book I read just before this one CaaaarazzzzyIn contrast THE WIFE BETWEEN US s a much darker tighter twisted story and I did give Publish and Perish it all the stars That book doesn t come out until January 2018 I will post a review on closer to publicationTHE LAST MRS PARRISHs scheduled for US publication today October 17 It has a gorgeous cover and I want to thank the lovely Chelsea Humphrey from for gifting Given Time it to me as part of a giveawayAvailable TODAY on sale at The Last Mrs Parrish A Novel To be honest I almost feel I am being generous with two stars but then I did finisht so I wouldn t think The Book of Lamentations it right to givet an even lower rating There was something about The Last Mrs Parrish that made Guide Through the Old Testament it a very easy read but that just wasn t enough My disappointmentn the book really comes from my dislike for the characters or at the very least my apathy towards them Amber The Best-Case Scenario Handbook is despicable but her bad personalitys written so overtly there The Last Days of the Romanovs is no mystery no build up of atmosphere to give the story some tension The author tells us all about Amber s sneakinessnstead of just showing The Fate of the Romanovs itwhich ruins the suspensen my opinion I could even get on board when the protagonist Miss Julia Takes Over (Miss Julia, is unlikable as long as theres some ambiguity yet there was none of that here Added to that Amber s goal LOSER is really just to be rich whichs too superficial and not Home-Ec 101 interesting enough to make her a compelling character I did feel for Daphne however I also felt her character was fairly bland and her partn the story not excitingThe mystery Exterminating Angel itself was so predictable that I kept thinking Is thist The book Culture and Customs of Norway is also just shy of 400 pages whichs too long given the rather minimal amount of actual plot Though as I say the writing The Billionaires Secretive Enchantress (The Berutelli Escape, is easy and makes the book very readable the author does make use of many a clich andn several cases I thought do people really talkthink like this She loved the feel of this singularly superior vehicle Shake, Rattle and Roll is just one example of awkward unrealistic language which I found to be a littlerritatingI know I am being hard on this book and maybe unfairly so since many readers loved A Private Midnight it but after all the attentiont received I had hoped for something exciting and The Weavers Idea Book inventive than I got All that being saidt s probably a decent vacation read or even a book club read because I The Mission of Mooney Rooney imagine people could have a lot to say about this book Unfortunatelyt just wasn t for meFind reviews and bookish fun at 45Careful what you wish for Amber has a dream a big one She wants to be rich beyond her wildest The Road to There imagination marry a gorgeous man and liven a stately mansion That s all And she s willing do

FULL REVIEW POSTED35 StarsHide ya wife Hide ya kids And hide ya husband Cause Amber Patterson s on the prowl and liable to steal your entire life right out from under your nose And this time her envious glare s set upon the beautiful and unsuspecting Daphne and her filthy rich disgustingly successful husband JacksonI ll be the first to admit that I love a good cast of whack job characters but there s certain criteria I feel necessary for their levels of nsanity to work The characters must feel fleshed out and human They should have layers and appear altered when viewed from different angles No one s all one thing They have to be convincing enough to make even the unbelievable seem believable No matter how absurd a theory may seem good writing will make me a believer While the characters here certainly nailed psychopathy I felt they lacked the depth and dimension needed for me to buy what they were selling although I m not saying the ride wasn t fun It just felt a bit put on and nauthentic at times This plot Det ordnar sig is dividednto three parts with alternating focus which I thought worked well The first section felt slightly repetitive and was my least enjoyable but the rest of the book had me flipping eagerly through The Admiral its pages anxiously awaiting reveals As for the twists they seemed edgy than surprising whichsn t a bad thing The ending left me a little divided for reasons that are too spoilery to mention but since this The Homunculus is fiction I can stand to give a high five to good ol book karma for doing her job with efficiency and vigor and a sweet twist ofrony as a cherry topper Overall a stellar concept that with a tighter execution I could have easily 5 starred I can definitely see this becoming a movie t certainly reads like one I do think many readers will enjoy the compulsive nature of this one and easily soar through this story Enjoy Traveling Friends Read Book Stats GenreCategory Psychological ThrillerMysterySuspense Characters Deliciously Unhinged but largely one dimensional Plot An envious woman greedily sets out to steal the life and husband of a new friend Writing Straightforward Fluid POV 1st 3rd Person Perspectives Alternating Heroines Cliffhanger None Standalone 45 superb stars 5 WOW What a fun ride that was The only reason this book s not getting the full five stars s t was a bit slow to start but once The Succubus it hit about 40% WOWZA things went sideways and I lovedtI just read and reviewed The Wife Between Us and really enjoyed The Bitchy Waiter: Tales, Tips Trials from a Life in Food Service it howevert Dictionary of Misinformation is very similar to this book so I can t help but compare and I d have to say I enjoyed this book and the reason for thiss I adored and hated these characters so muchAmber was the perfect girl you had to hate although I have to admit up until that first Twist I was rooting for her a tiny bit don t judge then we have Daphne I can t even tell you how I feel about Daphne because that would ruin things but such a well developed character my feelings for her were all over the place throughout this book I so much want to say something right now but I can t Ugh I am so jealous of you who have not already read this you have such a wonderful treat ahead of you so just pick this book up sit back relax and enjoy the crazy ride And keep Rosettas Dress Mess (Tales of Pixie Hollow, in mind good things come to those who wait Think of the beginning of this book as that huge hill you go up on a roller coaster before things start going sideways and crazyt Shadowtech (Shadowrun, 7110) by Karl Wu (1993-01-09) isn t necessarily the best part of the ride butt s necessary to get you to that place where things go wildPSAnd for those of you who have read this already that ending Perfection I devoured this entire book over a lazy Sunday It How to Build and Detail Model Railroad Scenes, Vol. 2 is extremely addictive The writing flows beautifully

only seems to have eyes for his beautiful wife However Ambers just not the type that gives up easily She s n t for the long game those designer clothes that private plane those dream vacations but not
