Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy


 This my a thriller! I must say it has been a long time since I have been this blindsided by a thriller...and multiple times at that! What a wild ride this was!

Sam and his new wife Annie are looking to escape the big city and back to Sam's hometown. The thing is Sam is hotter than my coffee and Annie knows it. She knows he turns heads without even trying and she knows he was quite the popular dude in town before he left. So going back to his small hometown may be a bit challenging...

So when Sam sets up his psychology office in the gorgeous Lawrence House...well you can't blame a person for wanting to keep an eye on him. When the French girl in the mini cooper shows up...well..I must admit I was worried about Sam's state of mind.

This book went from crazy to crazier! I loved it! The twists and turns were so brilliant that I never even imagined they were a possibility! If you are looking to get out of a thriller slump...this is the book for you!

I can't thank HarperCollins enough for this gorgeous finished copy they sent me in exchange for an honest review! I LOVED IT!

White Ivy by Susie Yang


Wow!!! There is nothing better than going into a debut and having it blow you away. ❤️ This seems to be the year of fantastic debuts and you just need to add this one to the list. This book is a slow burn that is so eloquently done that I could not look away. I could not put this down, it had an almost magnetizing element to it. Susie Yang has arrived my friends!

Ivy Lin is a girl that pulled me in a million directions. On one hand I wanted to feel sympathetic towards her. Her family immigrated to America where she lived in a low income complex, her family struggling to make ends meet. As if Ivy didn't have enough personal turmoil trying to fit in, her family sent her off to a exclusive school- Grove Prep Academy. It is here that Ivy gets a taste of the good life and decides it will be hers no matter what the cost.

For some reason Ivy has that "something" about her that just draw people to her. They would see the good in her, yet she was filled with dark, disturbing thoughts. Her moral lines were not drawn in the sand, they seemed to move about whenever she needed something. Yet still...everyone seems to love Ivy. She is a master manipulator and knows her game well. She makes people want to do things for her.

As she struggles to make it to the top, stepping on people from her past, just how far will she go? The ending was one that I never saw coming! I loved it!

Huge shoutout to Simon & Schuster for sending this gifted physical copy my way in exchange for an honest review.

Girls of Brackenhill by Kate Moretti

 A book that starts out saying..." I didn't mean to kill her" is defiantly going to get my attention and get it fast! I was instantly drawn into this dual timeline with that single sentence.

Brackenhill is an estate in the Catskills with 33 rooms. Sounds delightful doesn't it? It was delightful for two young girls that spent their summers there with their aunt and uncle. It was fun and glamorous...until it wasn't. Until one of the girls disappears......

Hannah swore she wouldn't step foot in Brackenhill again..yet she is forced to when her aunt dies suddenly and her uncle is on his deathbed. The house that holds secrets..the house that Hannah has terrible dreams about...the house that makes her sleepwalk...the house...Brackenhill...

Although it was a slow burn for me it did work. I enjoyed all the mystery surrounding the estate. I liked the use of the dual timelines. I thought the ending was very clever and I like the idea it implied of what was to come...

Thank you so much to Thomas and Mercer for my gifted copy in exchange for an honest review.
