Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Image
Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Book Review: Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris

While on their way home from Paris, France, Finn and Layla stop at a rest area. When Finn comes back to the car, Layla has disappeared without a trace. Fast forward ten years, Finn has fallen in love and is living with Layla's sister Ellen. With Finn's and Ellen's impending nuptials right around the corner, Finn receives a phone call that someone has seen Layla. On top of that, he's receiving sinister emails and items left at his house from Layla's and Ellen's childhood. Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris captured my attention from page one, and I had trouble putting it down. If I hadn't been so sleepy, I would have stayed up all night long to finish it. Even though clues were dropped throughout the book, I was totally shocked when I got to the end. Every guess I made was wrong, which doesn't happen to me often. Even the artwork on the cover is a bit of a clue, even though I didn't realize what it was until I finished. (I loved everything about the

Book Review: Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake, #2) by Rachel Caine

After escaping prison in Missouri, serial killer Melvin Royal is playing a cat and mouse game with his ex-wife Gwen Proctor and their kids.  With Lanny and Connor in the protection of friends, Gwen and Sam Cade are hunting Melvin so they can end the game once and for all. Rachel Caine proved that sequels are not inferior to the original with Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake, #2) . Where do I begin? The book picks up almost immediately where Stillhouse Lake left off, so it's probably in your best interest to read the books in order.  When I saw that it was being told from the perspective of several characters instead of just Gwen's perspective, I wasn't sure I'd like the book as well as the first one. However, it worked well, and it gave me better insight into what made all of the characters tick. The only downside was that I was in such a hurry to finish Killman Creek that I often didn't pay close enough attention to when it switched perspectives, and it lef
