Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson- Book Review

Matchmaking for Beginners was a cute book. It took me a little while to get into the story but thought it was cute none the less. I loved the character Blitz. I found her so refreshing and loved her carefree personality. I honestly think she made the story. Marnie the main character wasn’t my favorite, I felt like the lacked some depth and was continuously indecisive which was quite frustrating at time. Over all the book was cute but not one of my favorites. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thankfully I was able to read it for free through Kindle Unlimited.

Synopsis:

Marnie MacGraw wants an ordinary life—a husband, kids, and a minivan in the suburbs. Now that she’s marrying the man of her dreams, she’s sure this is the life she’ll get. Then Marnie meets Blix Holliday, her fiancé’s irascible matchmaking great-aunt who’s dying, and everything changes—just as Blix told her it would.

When her marriage ends after two miserable weeks, Marnie is understandably shocked. She’s even more astonished to find that she’s inherited Blix’s Brooklyn brownstone along with all of Blix’s unfinished “projects”: the heartbroken, oddball friends and neighbors running from happiness. Marnie doesn’t believe she’s anything special, but Blix somehow knew she was the perfect person to follow in her matchmaker footsteps.

And Blix was also right about some things Marnie must learn the hard way: love is hard to recognize, and the ones who push love away often are the ones who need it most.

The Shape of Night by Tess Gerritsen- Book Review

I just finished this book and it’s a really good supernatural thriller. I was of courses hooked when I read that the main character had a pet cat. This book was extremely intriguing and hard to put down. My only hesitation is the part when it comes to the main character having sex with a ghost. If you can overlook that then this book was really good. I’ve loved Tess Gerritsen previous books so I knew that I had to read this one. I would give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Thank you to NetGalley and Ballantine Books for the ARC. This book will be published October 1st which is perfect for a supernatural thriller during Halloween time.

The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney- Book Review

Let me start off saying that this book is complicated but once you get into the first few chapters it’s extremely hard to put down. As I read this story, I felt like I was diving into an episode of Black Mirror. A man created a robot that is identical to his missing (presumed dead) wife. Talk about creepy. JP Delaney left nothing out of this psychological thriller with a little scifi angle involved. The only negative is that the ending felt a tad bit rushed and with so much going on it was hard to keep up. I had to re-read the last couple of chapters because I got a little confused as to what was going on but I still felt satisfied with ending. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫. I will definitely be reading more of JP Delaney’s novels.

The Whisper Man by Alex North- Book Review

WOW! This book was suspenseful, nail-biting and creepy and I absolutely loved it. I couldn’t put it down and read it within two days of starting it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through. I love that it had a creepy saying that told you a little about who The Whisper Man because that brought it to a whole new creepy level. I also find that very creative on the author’s side of writing. If you love a good mystery thriller book then definitely add this one to you list. It will be published August 20th. Thank you to NetGalley and Celadon books for the ARC. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine – Book Review

I read this book at the beginning of the year and I devoured this book within two days because I couldn’t put this book down. I loved this book and the ending was so satisfying that I couldn’t stop thinking about for days after I read it. This book is written in two parts, the first part is written from the point of Amber and the second part is written form the point of Daphne. The story is filled with so many secrets and every turn you find out more and more details that continue to hook you into the story. Plus, this book is a perfect summer read, I mean just look at that cover. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. If you haven’t read this book than I urge you to go out and buy it or check it out at your local library.

Synopsis:

Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted. To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne—a socialite and philanthropist—and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale. Amber’s envy could eat her alive . . . if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life—the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.
