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.

Book Review: An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan

book review an unthinkable thing nicole lundrigan
In the summer of 1958, Tommie Ware turns eleven, and little does he know that his life will be turned upside down when his aunt doesn't come home from her night shift. She's later found murdered, presumably by a serial killer, and Tommie is sent to live with his mother at the Henneberry Estate, where she works as a servant. Nothing is as it seems in An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan.

First, I want to start by thanking NetGalley and Penguin Random House Canada for the advanced ebook copy of An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan. It was a pleasure to be one of the first people to read this book.

Told from the perspective of Tommy Ware, An Unthinkable Thing was reminiscent of several V.C. Andrews books. It's even a bit nostalgic of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Throughout the book, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, and when it did, I was content with the result.

Although a little slow, the story was well written, and I was eager to find out what would happen. I was pleased that there were several likable characters, which made up for the ones that weren't pleasant. All in all, I enjoyed An Unthinkable Thing, and there isn't really anything negative I could say about the book other than the pacing could have been a bit more brisk. Four out of five stars.
