Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers opens in Lofty Pines, Wisconsin with library owner Rain Wilmot getting ready to host her first book club and discuss Agatha Christie's Sparkling Cyanide .  When one of the members dies under suspicious circumstances, Rain and best friend Julia take it on themselves to become amateur sleuths to find out what happens. I'd like to thank NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers.  Being a huge Agatha Christie fan, I knew I wanted to read Holly Danvers' latest book since the storyline revolved around one of Christie's novels.  When I was approved to receive a copy for free in exchange for my honest review, I was happy. All in all, I really enjoyed reading Read To Death At The Lakeside Library .  It was a super cute and fun read . . . a beach read if you will.  The only thing

Book Review: The Island by Natasha Preston

book review the island natasha preston
The Island by Natasha Preston opens with teen influencer Paisley receiving an invite to Jagged Island, a resort and amusement park, for all expense paid weekend along with five other teen influencers in exchange for them posting their experience on their social media platforms.  However, none of them expected there to be a killer among them and no way to get off the island.

A huge thank you goes out to NetGalley, Random House Children's, and Delacorte Press for approving my request for the Advanced Reader's Copy of The Island by Natasha Preston.  I was thrilled to be chosen to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  The cover and synopsis of the book intrigued me right away, and I just knew I had to read it.

Reminiscent of Diane Hoh, Natasha Preston weaves a fascinating tale that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat from the get go.  I desperately wanted to take time off from work to finish the book in one sitting, but I had to settle for reading after work.  Yes, this story was that phenomenal.  I had my favorite characters, ones that I didn't like, and a few that I wasn't sure I could trust.

Not sure who the killer was, I was positive that there were at least two of them working together, and I was correct.  However, I didn't work out who the primary killer was until they were revealed. Additionally, I didn't fathom who the second one was, and I was in complete and utter shock when the identity of that person was divulged.

The one thing that I absolutely loathed was the ending.  Because of how the story concluded, I was a bit disillusioned.  Up until that point, it was a near perfect read for me.  I'd be interested to see how other readers felt about this book.  Four out of five stars is what I give The Island by Natasha Preston.
