- Psychological thriller that is not too psychological and not too thrillery. Good if you just want to get involved in a story and turn pages. I enjoy the way Jewell writes.
- Big fan of the Ruth Galloway series. Not so cozy mystery about a woman who does not insinuate herself into a crime, nor happens upon dead bodies. This is 13 in a series- if you are going to read, start at the beginning
- If you need a lightish book about resilience- this is it. Probably OK for book clubs
- Beach read with a little more soul than usual. Not too heavy, but somewhat thought provoking
- Light read yet made me think. Good for fans of The Rosie Project
- I had never read any of the books in the series, so it took me a bit to understand the main character and what she does. Once I got the gist the book was enjoyable, but I think you need to read in order
- My main issue with this book was that the main character was sort of all over the place. While I get that people are multi faceted, none of the character’s actions make sense when you look at them from a distance. Couldn’t decide if I liked the main characters even though I think the intent was for the reader to root for them.
- Yet another book about WWII. True, the story is slightly different, but not so much that I would tell you that you need to read this book
- The language is beautiful, but not so beautiful to make up for lackluster story and unlikeable characters. The book is sort of like junk food- it feels pretty good when you are reading it, but then you realize that you got nothing out of it and it’s not satisfying
- Too wordy. Too much description. Took what could have been an interesting story and muddled it up.
