Though it was not a laugh a minute type book, I loved the honest and the real struggle of this man's adventure of living a year lie-free. It was a true eye opener for him as well as me when I questioned if I would be able to make such a commitment to totally honest. In the end, I triumphed with the author on his becoming a better person for the effort.
Thriller does not begin to describe this break a neck pace of this whodunit story. The author had me belted in from the first word and kept me stuck in the seat until the shocking end of the ride. Mr. Ulfelder is poised to become one the hottest new mystery writers this year. Thank you to Early Readers for bring this awesome author to my attention!
I thought it was clever how the author connected Harry Potter text with traditional British food in creating a literary based cookbook. They were not magical recipes with silly ingredients but real food and with real cooking. The recipes I did try were delicious and easy to follow.
I don't write spoilers but rather recommendations. This is a wonderful preteen novel that is positive and touching with ample drama and magic thrown in. Thank you to the LibraryThing Early Reviewers for the ARC copy I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I loved the strength and intelligence that the main character exuded as well as the powerful connection between the nature and humanity that is portrayed in the storyline. The storyline kept the reader completely hooked all the way until the finale. Thank you Early Readers Giveaway for introducing me to a powerful, creative, and intriguing new favorite author!
This was my first Mary Jo Putney novel so thank you Early Reader Giveaway for sharing her with me. I loved the headstrong heroine who wrestles with her station in life and her love for a rogue yet respectable gentleman who desires her more than is fitting for a man born into his position in life. They were thrown together in a mission to safe the royal household which add to the tension between the characters. I loved the quick paced novel that did not reveal the mystery until the last few pages.
Thanks to Barnes and Nobles Free Friday Giveaways for introducing to this author and novel. I enjoyed reading it how ever difficult at times. It was wonderful how Ms. Kingsbury parallels the life of her main character Mary Madison to that of the life of Mary Magdalene. What a triumphant ending for all of the characters.
Such a tragic, but a gripping look into the world of bipolar disorder and the effects on a family. I love the way the narrator takes you into her mania thinking and suffering. The story grips you from the first word and does not let you go even at the last, you will consider to ponder the characters after the story is finished.
I loved the rich characters with their intriguing personal stories that come together that make up this in funny looking for love stories which all of the characters knowingly and unknowingly looking for. I was held captive until the end of the story to find out who ended up with who and how story played out. Thank you Free Fridays on Barnes and Noble for sharing an author I might of not otherwise enjoyed.
