Book Review: Read To Death At The Lakeside Library (Lakeside Library Mystery, #3) by Holly Danvers

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 Inmate by Freida McFadden

book review the inmate freida mcfadden

The Inmate by Freida McFadden opens with Brooke Sullivan starting a new job as a nurse practitioner at Raker State Penitentiary, where there are only three rules she has to follow.  Unbeknownst to the staff at the prison, Brooke has already broken one of the rules . . . she has a connection to one of the inmates and was the person who put him there.

Recently, I've been hearing rave reviews about the author Freida McFadden, so I decided to put holds on several of her novels at my local library.  The Inmate became available, and I have to say that I absolutely devoured the story.  It's a super easy, engaging read that had me on the edge of my seat.  A beach read if you will.

I thought I had the story almost completely figured out early on by basing my reasoning on the last book I read by the author, Never Lie.  However, I was completely wrong, and I was thrown by the big reveal.  Then, I was thrown again by the epilogue.  The main character, Brooke Sullivan, was a very likable character . . . much more so than the main character in Never Lie.  There were a couple of other characters that were likable to start with and ended up not being so likable.  There were a few twists and turns and red herrings along the way that kept my heart pounding.

Five out of five stars is what I gave The Inmate by Freida McFadden.  I enjoyed the storytelling immensely and can't wait to read the next book that becomes available to me at my local library.
