Enjoyable classic

An epic saga and classic about the ups and downs of two lifelong friends. It’s hard to believe that this character driven story was first published in 1918. I imagine it was considered very modern writing for the time. Highly recommend for those that enjoy American midwestern, historical fiction.

Better than I thought

I liked this better than I thought I would. Beyond all of the abhorrent behavior of these horrible people, there was a fantastic story of survival and justice. I liked how the story took me along on a ride through a young woman’s life of adversity and triumph. The story flips back and forth between then and now but it is done well and kept me interested equally between the two. This is not for everyone.

Sandra Brown never disappoints

Sandra Brown writes great suspense thrillers and I really liked the characters in this fast paced mystery. I could not put it down and it would have been a five star, but I figured out a big part of the plot early on, however, it still had a very good ending.

Always a fun ride with Harry

Harry is part time with the PD on the cold case desk and a part time private dic. when he gets a call from an old acquaintance who does personal security for a well known billionaire. He does not plan on taking the case until a very old man appeals to the softer side of Harry. This addition is a good mix between tough unrelenting Harry and an Agatha Christi-esqu story line. Very good, fast paced caper that has a double story and double ending.

Fun Cozy

I really love this cozy, cat series. It’s interesting how the author makes it a plausible, mystic mystery. The characters are not silly and the stories are original and fast paced. I like that the adventures are fun, suspenseful and clean. Onto the next for me.

Not for everyone

A psychological, thriller that delves into depression and agoraphobia. The first part of the book lags a bit but does set the scene and gives us a good look into the psyche of the main character. I have to say it really got to me how messed up she was and what a horrid existence it must be to live with psychosis. This may not be for people suffering from anxiety disorders.

It was hard to tell if this poor woman was delusional or if she was really experiencing what she thought she was seeing from the windows in her multilevel home. There is not much that can be said without setting up spoilers. I read this with my buddy Mary and it was definitely nice to have someone to discuss this mind twister with.

Meh

I know my rating of 3.5 stands out among all of The Traveling Sisters 5 stars, but I had an idea of who was behind the mystery at about half way into the story. The writing style was good and I did connect with a few of the characters, but I was not satisfied with the ending.

Very attached to these characters

First I have to start with that this is not a genre I read, but with that said, these books belong in my top 5 favorite series. The characters, setting and narrative keep me waiting with high anticipation for each new book. As with most series it’s best to start with book one. I Highly recommend this wonderful journey through these characters lives, who if the series was to lose one, I would absolutely be devastated! A bit dramatic... but for me it is just that good.
