The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter

Title: The Good Daughter 
Author: Karin Slaughter 
Publisher: William Morrow
Release Date: August 8, 2017

The stunning new novel from the international #1 bestselling author — a searing, spellbinding blend of cold-case thriller and psychological suspense.

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville's notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case that unleashes the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried forever…

Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.

“I’ve got to figure out before I die whether I want to be happy or I want to be right.” 

Karin Slaughter doesn’t mince her words. 

The Good Daughter was a gritty, violent dark novel which had me from the first page. 

The Good Daughter centers around two sisters Samantha and Charlotte Quinn who after a home invasion will never be the same. This event leaves both of them scarred for life. They have mental as well as physical scars. In a split second, they go from being a family to losing their mother, gamma. 

Their mother Gamma was special. She had a very high IQ. She had married Rusty, a defense lawyer who most of the town people hated especially after defending a rapist. Gamma and Rusty loved their two daughters. Samantha, the oldest daughter had a better relationship with Gamma and Charlotte had a better one with Rusty. As adults, both daughters had followed in the footsteps of their father. They are both attorneys. 

The sisters will become estranged for many years after a fight the last time they saw each other as adults. Neither knows what has transpired in the life of the other. But the estrangement will come to an end when a situation back home requires the presence of Samantha.

What a devastating story! It broke my heart. I was so sad about what these girls lost. Neither had healed from the major event in their lives but I felt like they were on the right track by the end of the book. They were entitled to some happiness after everything they have survived. 

The Good Daughter had a couple of good twists. One was easy to guess. The second one less so. 

Karin Slaughter's writing is addicting. She makes you believe these characters are real. You get to know them inside and out. From their fears to their hopes, to their souls. 

One last thing, the audios read by Katherine Early are superb. She has a great voice. Go ahead and give her a try.

I would recommend the Good Daughter to anyone looking for a writer who delivers a memorable story.

One Small Thing by Erin Watt

Hardcover384 pages
Published June 26th 2018 by Harlequin Teen
ISBN: 1335017275

Beth’s life hasn’t been the same since her sister died. Her parents try to lock her down, believing they can keep her safe by monitoring her every move. When Beth sneaks out to a party one night and meets the new guy in town, Chase, she’s thrilled to make a secret friend. It seems a small thing, just for her.

Only Beth doesn’t know how big her secret really is…

Fresh out of juvie and determined to start his life over, Chase has demons to face and much to atone for, including his part in the night Beth’s sister died. Beth, who has more reason than anyone to despise him, is willing to give him a second chance. A forbidden romance is the last thing either of them planned for senior year, but the more time they spend together, the deeper their feelings get.

Now Beth has a choice to make—follow the rules, or risk tearing everything apart…again.

One Small Thing was the first book I have read by Erin Watt! I have heard that books by Erin Watt are always highly addictive and this book was just that! From start to finish, this book was intense roller coaster! This book focused on romantic relationships, healing after a tragic loss, forgiveness, and family. So, it is safe to say that this book was full of angst.

The drama and angst in this book was very heavy. There were many moments that made my heart actually hurt because I just felt so bad for the characters and the situations they were in. This book really knew how to make the reader feel like they were on an emotional roller coaster! The drama kept the book interesting and extremely addictive, however, there defintely were moments that felt too dramatic. Some of the drama felt just so over the top that it was hard to really enjoy the angst. I was hoping that something new was going to be introduced in the book, but the book really focused on one big drama and it felt a bit repetitve. Also, so many characters in this book were not sympathetic or willing to forgive. I just wanted to pull my hair out when the characters were so mean and unsupportive of Beth and Chase. IT WAS SO ANNOYING. I JUST WANTED EVERYONE TO GET ALONG AND GET PAST THE DRAMA!

Beth and Chase, the two main characters, were both unqiue and memorable characters. They had a lot of growth through out the story, and it warmed my heart to see them grow together. However, I will say that there were many times that Beth annoyed me. Most of Beth's reactions were so immature and they didn't make much sense. There were so moments when I wanted to scream at her to open her eyes and think practically! She constantly threw fits and acted like a five year old. I understood that she was going through a lot, but those things did not make up for the way she acted throughout most of the book. I was glad that she did have a lot of growth throughout the story, because I don't think I would have been able to finish the book if she didn't have growth.

Chase, on the other hand, was a sweet cinnamon roll that I wanted to protect. He was so hard on himself and felt like he didn't deserve anyone's love or forgiveness. My heart ached for him and I just wanted him to feel love and happiness again!

Overall, this was an intense and entertaining novel. Even though there was a bit too much drama for my taste, Chase and the swoony moments made this book an addictive one! If you are looking for a romance novel full of angst, then I would recommend picking this book up!

It Takes Two (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #2)
by Jenny Holiday

"The perfect rom-com." -Refinery29 on One and Only

In this hilarious romantic comedy, USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday proves that what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas...

All's fair in love and war

Wendy Liu should be delighted to be her best friend's maid of honor. But after years spent avoiding the bride's brother - aka the boy who once broke her heart - she's now trapped with him during an endless amount of wedding festivities. Luckily she's had time to perfect her poker face, and engaging Noah Denning in a little friendly competition might just prove that she's over him for good...

Noah Denning is determined to make his little sister's wedding memorable. But it seems Wendy is trying to outdo him at every turn. Challenging each other was always something he and Wendy did right, so when she proposes they compete to see who can throw the best bachelor or bachelorette party in Sin City, Noah takes the bait - and ups the stakes. Because this time around, he wants Wendy for keeps. And when you're fighting for love, all bets are off. 

"Delightfully sexy and sweet." -Lauren Layne, New York Timesbestselling author, on One and Only

It Takes Two was romantic novel full of angst and entertaining banter! This was a fun and quick read that made me feel the warm and fuzzies. 

Wendy, the main character, was a sweet and easy character to root for. Even though she had a lot of feelings building up inside her, she was someone that hated showing her true emotions. She was a strong woman who never wanted anyone to control her or her emotions. I admired her strength and determination, but I also loved watching her open up to Noah throughout the book. 

The romance between Noah and Wendy had so many sweet moments, but also a lot of tension and longing. The angst added a lot of entertaining elements to the story, but there were times when the drama felt a bit ridiculous. There was a competition elements that felt a little repeatitive, which was frusterating. However, as a whole, the romance was still a cute romance! 

Overall, this was a cute and quick romance novel! If you are looking for a fun way to escape, I would recommend checking this book out!

The Fragile Ordinary by Samantha Young


From the New York Times bestselling author of The Impossible Vastness of Us and the On Dublin Street series comes a heartfelt and beautiful new young adult novel, set in Scotland, about daring to dream and embracing who you are. Order your copy of THE FRAGILE ORDINARY today!


I am Comet Caldwell.

And I sort of, kind of, absolutely hate my name.

People expect extraordinary things from a girl named Comet. That she’ll be effortlessly cool and light up a room the way a comet blazes across the sky.

But from the shyness that makes her book-character friends more appealing than real people to the parents whose indifference hurts more than an open wound, Comet has never wanted to be the center of attention. She can’t wait to graduate from her high school in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the only place she ever feels truly herself is on her anonymous poetry blog. But surely that will change once she leaves to attend university somewhere far, far away.

When new student Tobias King blazes in from America and shakes up the school, Comet thinks she’s got the bad boy figured out. Until they’re thrown together for a class assignment and begin to form an unlikely connection. Everything shifts in Comet’s ordinary world. Tobias has a dark past and runs with a tough crowd—and none of them are happy about his interest in Comet. Targeted by bullies and thrown into the spotlight, Comet and Tobias can go their separate ways…or take a risk on something extraordinary.

“Endearing and relatable, Comet-the girl who is searching for her place in this world-will shoot through the sky and into your heart.”

— #1 New York Times bestselling author Erin Watt



The Fragile Ordinary was yet another stand out contemporary novel by Samantha Young. Samantha Young is one of those authors that I know every time I pick up one of her books, I will enjoy it! This book was an entertaining story from start to finish!

The main female character, Comet, was easy to relate to. She was more of a loner who would rather read than interact with other humans. She had a lot of fears and seemed to be afraid to open up or try something new. Sometimes I just wanted to shake her and tell her she could do anything she set her mind to! Even though it was frustrating at times to see her struggle, it just made her seem more human. Samantha was great at showing Comet deal with real life issues in a honest way. 

The romance in this book made me swoon, just as I predicted! Tobias was that hot, dark, and mysterious guy that I couldn't help but be intrigued by. I did not blame Comet AT ALL for her immediate interest in wanting to know more about him. Their realtionship had many ups and downs that made me feel ALL THE FREAKING FEELS. 

This book was romantic, hilarious, relatable, honest, and heart-wrenching. If you are in the mood for a contemporary romance, then I would recommend picking this book up!

*This ebook was given to me in exchange for an honest review. * 

It was the weekend before Christmas, and we had our last week at school ahead of us. In all the time we’d spent together, Tobias and I had never ventured out of Portobello. I didn’t know if it was a conscious decision or if we’d spent so much time concealing our friendship that we feared going out anywhere that we might be seen together. Whatever the reason, it no longer existed, and after a week of tentative silence from our tormentors I suggested he and I go into the city for the Christmas Markets and Fair.
I watched Tobias’s face as we got off the bus early that Saturday morning. He hadn’t been happy about me dragging him out of bed at the butt crack of dawn, but the market always got incredibly busy as the day wore on. As we walked passed Edinburgh Waverly train station on Princes Street the sky was still a dark violet blue, making the Christmas lights twinkle spectacularly. It was like walking into another world. White lights sparkled in the trees like Jack Frost had danced all over their branches. The Star Flyer ride, lit up in a million different lights, stood beside—and as tall—as the Scott Monument. The ride was a pole with a flat umbrella top that moved up and down and spun. Attached to that top were bucket seats on a swing. When you were in the seat you were taken right to the top of the Star Flyer and spun out like the hem of a poodle skirt. You could see all of the city from up there—a three-hundred-and-sixty-degree view.
On the other side of the monument was the massive Ferris wheel. With somewhere in the region of twenty thousand lights all over it, it looked like it was covered in sparkling jewels. The wheel was more my speed, with little sheltered carriages to sit in so you could enjoy the view of Edinburgh without feeling like you were going to be thrown out of your seat.
“What do you think?” I asked Tobias as we crossed the street to stand beneath the Star Flyer.
He gripped my hand tighter in his and smiled down at me. “Pretty cool.”
I grinned back and hugged into his side as we continued to walk down the main street of the city. The center of Edinburgh was split into two historical areas. To our left and uphill the roads led to Old Town, the medieval area. Up there was the Royal Mile, where old tenement buildings towered over the wide, cobbled road. In between the buildings were narrow passageways and stairwells, leading to a “secret” underground world. The Mile stretched all the way up to Edinburgh Castle, perched upon its volcanic rock.
From down on Princes Street it felt like the castle loomed over all, majestic, proud, and as I looked at it through Tobias’s eyes, awe-inspiring.
“That is pretty cool,” he said as we stood at the lower end of Princes Street and stared up at the castle. At this time of the morning, warm lights placed strategically in the rock face of the volcano it sat on lit up the castle in a surreal, ethereal glow. The streets were quiet, even of cars, taxis and buses, and for a moment we just stood there, huddled together in the cold winter morning, staring at all the lights.
It felt like we were part of a wonderland. Why had I not appreciated that until I was standing with Tobias, seeing it from his perspective?
From there we walked upward on our right. Here was the other historical region of the city—New Town. It was famous for its eighteenth-century Georgian architecture. Up there, where the expensive shops, nice restaurants and luxury hotels were situated, was George Street, and my eyes widened at the sight we found.
On the west end, bejeweled in green light like something out of Wickedor Disney, was Edinburgh’s Street of Light structure. It loomed as high as the buildings with two towers at the front and two at the back. Connecting those were arches, giving it the stunning appearance of a 3-D castle made up of stained glass. At night choirs and bands played under it, making the whole experience feel so magically Christmassy that it reminded me of how different my own Christmas experience was compared to a lot of people my age.
“Wow.” Tobias said as we stared up at it.
I burrowed closer to him, not just for heat, but because I couldn’t help myself from wanting to be as close to him as possible. Always.

All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin

Title: All We Ever Wanted 
Author: Emily Giffin 
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Release Date: June 26, 2018

In the riveting new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of First Comes Love and Something Borrowed, three very different people must choose between their family and their values.

Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she’s strayed from the person she once was.

Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville’s most prestigious private school.

Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn’t always fit in—and her overprotective father doesn’t help—but in most ways, she’s a typical teenage girl, happy and thriving.

Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame.

At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together—all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning. 


One photo will irreversibly change the lives of two families in the latest Emily Giffin novel.

Nina Browning has it all. She's married, she's rich and her son was recently accepted into Princeton. She had everything she wanted. She gives back to her community by dedicating her free time to her philanthropy and attending event after event on the arm of her handsome husband.

Nina didn't come from money. Her life could have been very different if she had remained with her high school boyfriend. She could be living close to her parents and her best friend Julie. Instead, she lives in a mansion where money is not an object. But when her son Finch gets into trouble after taking a picture of a half-naked Lyla, she begins to wonder when things went wrong with herself and her family.

Tom Volpe is a single parent. He raised Lyla by himself and he's proud of her accomplishments including getting a scholarship into Windsor's Academy. Everything changes when he's called to pick up a drunk Lyla from a friend's house. It gets worse when he sees the damaging photo in question. Needless to say, Tom is furious and he asks the school for retribution.

Not too long after Nina, Lyla, Tom, and Finch will meet.

Kudos to Emily Giffin for weaving great topics throughout her storyline. Date rape, social media, and accountability all play a big part in it.

Social media can be used for good but more and more, I see it used to attack one another or to hurt peoples' feelings. This is exactly what happens when a picture of Lyla at her most vulnerable spreads all over Windsor Academy.

I supported Tom's decisions especially since Lyla had trouble understanding the severity of the picture. I don't think she realized a half-naked picture of her on the internet is forever. Tom was there to protect his daughter and fight for her rights. He wanted Finch to pay for what he did and I can't say that I blame him for it.

I liked Nina but I had some issues in the way she approached her family during the scandal. I'm not saying that Nina caring for Lyla's wellbeing was a bad thing, on the contrary, Lyla needed people in her corner.

Finch's character was hard to read. At times, he seemed like a good kid and at others, he seemed to be a douche who had everyone fooled.

My one complaint is about the ending. I felt the conflict was resolved all too fast and way too easy.

Cliffhanger: No

The Crown Princess by Kathleen Samuels

Today Kathleen Samuels’ is stopping by to share the release of her new romance, THE CROWN PRINCESS with us! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Title: The Crown Princess

Author: Kathleen Samuels

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Dependable Crown Princess of Cordova, Gwen, is dreading the day she gives up her life for her country. With the day of coronation looming, Gwen decides to make a bucket list of crazy things she wants to do before the big day. Taking her list, she travels to Las Vegas, a place where no one will question wild behavior and she can be just another normal person on vacation in sin city. Enlisting the help of Alex, a notorious entitled playboy, she finds herself checking off more than just the items on the list. Is she willing to risk it all and take a chance at falling in love? 

Fiercely independent Alex, the black sheep of his family, was raised in the hotel business. Breaking out on his own, he built a successful Resort and Casino on the strip in Las Vegas. When Gwen asks for Alex’s help on completing her list of ‘bad girl’ activities he readily accepts. Who else knows how to let loose but the Billionaire Playboy himself. But as he starts helping her with the list, he begins to realize that this Princess might be worth trading in his bad boy image.


“Good morning.” Alex’s voice rang through the kitchen. 
Startled, Gwen shoved her list into the pocket of her skirt. “Good morning,” she squeaked.
Oh my God, I sound ridiculous.
What did this man have to make her act so out of character? Keeping her eyes fixed on her bowl of cereal, she cleared her throat, sipped her water, and desperately tried to pull herself together. The quiet stillness of the kitchen made her raise her eyes. 
There he stood, lounging against the counter in all his glory, a faint tremor of amusement in his expression. Slowly, he raised his coffee to his perfectly formed lips. Without breaking eye contact, he stated what she feared.
“So, we’re attracted to one another, am I right?”
Choking, she spat water over the counter.
“I think if we got it out there, acknowledge the fact that we both can visualize the other naked, something we both want, then we can move on. You can’t tell me you haven’t done that. Visualized me naked, I mean.”
Gwen groaned. This man was crazy.
Correct, but still crazy.
Buying time, she carefully wiped up the spewed liquid, ever conscious of his playful smile. As she saw it, two options presented themselves. Admit an attraction and see how he responded. Which might be fantastic. It could lead to a short affair, not only making her trip more enjoyable than she ever thought, but also crossing off one of her bucket list items. 
She could almost hear her sister’s voice encouraging her. It would be exactly what Petra would do. Was that so bad? This was the whole reason she came here. To be more like her siblings and less like her old self, a fuddy-duddy aristocrat. 
Her only other option—denial—didn’t seem like a great answer. Glancing up at Alex, she knew he would see through that blatant lie, anyway. 
“Okay, yes. There is attraction.” Now what?

Kathleen Samuels knew the moment she picked up a Sweet Valley High book that happily ever after endings were the only books to read. She began writing in junior high school, determined to become an author someday. After college, she became a teacher for children with disabilities, still writing in her spare time. Joining Romance Writers of America in 2011 focused her efforts and she created The Royals of Cordova series. Kathleen is a collector of everything based on the Cinderella story and truly believes she will find her Prince Charming one day. Until then, she will write about them in her books. Kathleen makes her home in Southern California with her two college age children and little Tibetan Spaniel, Jack.

Almost Impossible by Nicole Williams

Paperback256 pages
Published June 19th 2018 by Crown Books for Young Readers
ISBN: 0553498819

Fans of Sarah Dessen, Stephanie Perkins, and Jenny Han will delight as the fireworks spark and the secrets fly in this delicious summer romance from a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

When Jade decided to spend the summer with her aunt in California, she thought she knew what she was getting into. But nothing could have prepared her for Quentin. Jade hasn't been in suburbia long and even she knows her annoying (and annoyingly cute) next-door neighbor spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

And when Quentin learns Jade plans to spend her first American summer hiding out reading books, he refuses to be ignored. Sneaking out, staying up, and even a midnight swim, Quentin is determined to give Jade days--and nights--worth remembering.

But despite their storybook-perfect romance, every time Jade moves closer, Quentin pulls away. And when rumors of a jilted ex-girlfriend come to light, Jade knows Quentin is hiding a secret--and she's determined to find out what it is.

Almost Impossible was a great summer romance novel! This was the perfect book to pick up when I was craving a contemporary with romance, banter, feels, and some drama sprinkled in!

The main character, Jade, was a very likable character. She was a very practical and level-headed girl. I related to her SO HARD when she just wanted to stay inside an read books! She was someone that didn't really take risks if she had any thought of it not working. I liked that she was always someone who tried to think things through before doing them. However, it was nice to see her let loose a little bit in this book and learn that it is okay to lose control sometimes! Quentin was the main male character and he was a dream-boat. He always said what was on his mind and wasn't afraid to do daring things, especially for the people he cared about. He was a charming and kind guy. I couldn't help but fall in love with him!

The romance in this book was super adorable and full of swoons. The author did a great job at creating characters that some wouldn't think would work, but it turned out that they were perfect together. The emotional and physical chemistry between Jade and Quentin was incredible!

The main reason this book didn't get a higher review was that I didn't like the predictability. I was hoping for more surprises when secrets were revealed, but I was able to predict all of them. I still enjoyed the book A LOT, but it was something that took a bit of enjoyment away.

Overall, this book was a fun, entertaining, and adorable book. If you are looking for a quick and romantic contemporary novel to pick up, I definitely recommend this one!
