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: Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson

book review every vow you break peter swanson

Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson - Abigail Baskin falls in love with millionaire Bruce Lamb. During her bachelorette party, Abigail has a drunken one night stand and instantly regrets it. When the guy from Abigail's bachelorette party shows up every where she is, including her wedding and honeymoon, she's frantic.

Fast paced and unputdownable is how I would describe Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson. Enjoyable from page one, I couldn't wait to see how it would end. Although it was a bit predictable, I loved this novel so much more than I did his Eight Perfect Murders. I was ecstatic that he didn't give away any endings to other books this time. However, if you haven't watched The Wicker Man, you may want to watch the movie before reading this book because he does give away the ending to it. Thankfully, I had already seen the remake of the movie with Nicholas Cage.

Several of the characters were unlikable like Bruce and Scottie. With that being said, at one point I kind of liked Scottie, but that didn't last too long. However, there were some likable characters . . . I liked the main character, despite her indiscretions and her best friend Zoe. I even liked the only other female guest on the island, Jill.

Even though Every Vow You Break was a bit predictable, as I mentioned before, it still had my heart racing at parts. It was very entertaining yet disturbing at the same time. Some things that were great reminders about real life that were in this book was to take breaks from social media . . . it really is addictive, and to not ignore any red flags you see in relationships or other aspects in your life. 

I don't really have any complaints for Every Vow You Break and can't wait to read another novel by Peter Swanson. I gave this book five out of five stars.
