Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore.

Book Review: The Tenant by Angela Lester

book review the tenant angela lesterDreaming of a life in music, Kate gives up her life as a librarian to go back to school at a prestigious college. Needing to rent a place to live, Kate answers an ad and moves in with Amy. At first, Kate is glad to have the support of her landlord, but when Kate's life starts to spiral out of control, Amy becomes a bit smothering in The Tenant by Angela Lester.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Inkubator Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Tenant by Angela Lester. The synopsis of the book and the cover intrigued me, and I was thrilled to receive a digital copy for free in exchange for my honest review.

The Tenant by Angela Lester is one of those novels that would make a great movie. The storyline felt vaguely familiar, but not in a bad way. I never did predict what was happening to the main character and was surprised at the ending.

Although I enjoyed this book quite a bit, there were points in the story that were slow moving, and I became a bit impatient, wishing that something surprising would happen. Even though it was a slow burn, I was glad I stuck with it. The ending was well worth the wait. I'll definitely read other books written by Angela Lester. 
 
All in all, I don't have anything negative to say about The Tenant by Angela Lester. I gave this book four out of five stars. I would recommend this book to those who like slow burns.
