Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

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: Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone

book review two nights in lisbon chris pavone

Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone is about a woman named Ariel Pryce waking up alone in her Lisbon hotel room, and her husband is no where to be found in the hotel.  Panicking, Ariel reaches out to the local police and the American Embassy, but they aren't of much help.  Who would want to harm her husband?

First and foremost, I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone in exchange for my honest review.  I was excited to receive this book, especially since I'm a fan of the author's writing.

Chris Pavone weaved an intriguing story in Two Nights in Lisbon that had twists and turns galore that left me guessing until the very end.  I found myself rooting for the main character and loved the fact that all the loose ends were wrapped up so there were no cliffhangers.  I enjoyed the fact that the storyline switched back and forth between the present and past . . . making this novel a bit of a slow burn.  

There was really only one big complaint that I have about this novel.  I don't like it when the author has an unreliable narrator because it makes it difficult to guess what will happen.  Four out of five stars is what I gave Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone, and I can't wait to see what he writes next.
