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: Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3) by Nicola Upson

Back in 2010, I discovered a website called Goodreads.com where I could keep track of what books I had read, what I was currently reading, and books that I wanted to read. Then, I found out that you could enter giveaways for a chance to win an advanced readers copy, also known as an ARC, of a book or a book that had already been published. I have been fortunate enough to win several books through Goodreads.com's First Reads Giveaways. One of those books was Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3) written by Nicola Upson. I received this novel for free in exchange for my honest review.

Not knowing anything at all about the author going into reading Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3), I had absolutely no preconceived ideas about Nicola Upson. Overall, the book was relatively well written, and the style of writing reminded me a bit of P.D. James. It was interesting enough to keep my attention until I got about halfway through the book. At that point, the story line really started to drag for me, and I had to push through it. When I got to the last eighty or so pages of Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3), the narrative really started to pick up. Even though this is the third book in a series, it definitely can be read as a stand alone book. I gave this novel three out of five stars because the book redeemed itself in my opinion. If you liked this book, then I definitely recommend you try reading Devices and Desires (Adam Dalgliesh, #8) by P.D. James.

Synopsis of Two for Sorrow (Josephine Tey, #3):  A mystery writer named Josephine Tey is writing a novel based on two British women who were hanged for the crimes of murdering newborns. While researching her novel, Josephine finds herself entangled in a hunt for a modern day killer.
