Weekly Book Reviews: 10/9/21

Note: The reviews will be pulled directly from my reviews on Goodreads.

The Last Time I Lied: A Novel by [Riley Sager]

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Date Finished: October 6th

Story: This story wasn’t as dark as the other two Sager books I read, but I really enjoyed it quite a lot. It wasn’t a predictable book for me. Not that I don’t like predictable books. I just really enjoy ones that leave me floored and shook. I can’t explain it. Sager is really good at making you question everything you think.
Characters: I’m really bad with names and it’s been a few days since I finished this book. I really liked the main character a lot. She had some suspicious qualities, but she wasn’t really unreliable. At least not in an aggravating way. Her friend at the camp was pretty interesting too. Especially with all of her photography.
Critiques: None
Narration: Full stars! Fully recommend!
Final Thoughts: The more books I read by Sager, the bigger a fan I become. That didn’t take much. He was already an impulse by before I even read any of his books! I can’t wait to read other books by him!

Dancing with the Single Dad (The Single Dads of Seattle Book 2) by [Whitley Cox]

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Date Finished: October 6th

Story: I really enjoyed this book a lot. I did have my reserves due to a part that happened in the first book in this series that irked me very badly. I won’t get into the details because it doesn’t pertain to this book and it would spoil the other book for potential readers. It was really great. There was a small bit of suspense, but it wasn’t major. There is a healthy bit of spice in the book as well. Let’s just say that the two main characters are very attracted to each other.
Characters: Violet has been through a lot. The love of her life passed away. Her father passed away. Her brother’s wife passed away. Not all at the same time, mind you. It was very close together though. I admire her courage and strength to go on. As somebody who has experienced loss, I can say that it’s not an easy task. Adam is pretty amazing too. He’s a great father and he’s so good to his ex-wife.
Critiques: There is a conflict between Violet and her mother that’s not fully resolved. At least not in my opinion. It’s just kind of left.
Narration: I loved the narrators. They did a very fantastic job.
Final Thoughts: I had my reserves because of the first book, but I’m thankful to say that I was wrong about that. I really enjoyed the book very much. It was a very heated HEA read.

I’d love to see your book reviews!
