Summer 2021 Book Reviews

Title: Piece of My Heart (Under Suspicion, #7)
Author: Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke
Rating: 4/5
Comments: I didn’t realize this book was part of a series when I grabbed it from the library. However, Clark makes it very easy to read without having to have read the previous books in the series. I didn’t need the other books in order to enjoy this one. Although the story is serious and terrifying, something about Clark’s style of writing makes it so light and easy to read. There is no fluff and not too much detail where it’s hard to follow along and differentiate story-lines. The outcome isn’t a total plot-twist but it’s still a good read.

Title: The Cinderella Murder (Under Suspicion, #2)
Author: Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke
Rating: 3.8/5
Comments: I found this one on a bookcase in my aunt’s house! It’s part of the series I didn’t know I was reading and I was excited to pick it up even though I already read further ahead and knew some spoilers. I didn’t enjoy this as much as #7 but the main characters are so likable that they make you want to keep reading. This ending had much more of a shock-value but still wasn’t as interesting. With that being said, I am so ready to read the rest of the Under Suspicion series and I plan on going in order this time!

Title: The Last Thing He Told Me
Author: Laura Dave
Rating: 3.7/5
Comments: This did not give me the shock value I was expecting. Everyone has been talking about this book and I think I just had different expectations. I listened to it on Audible and I was able to stay interested. However, I kept expecting someone else to be involved somehow or something else to not be what it seemed. The whole concept did not seem as serious as it should have been considering some disappears. It almost felt Lifetime-y. I appreciated the ending but I still have one major question: Why did he have her table?

I slacked this summer with reading. Typically, I read around 10 books but between moving, starting a new job, new friends, and new experiences, I didn’t have much interest or time to pick up a book. I would love to say I’ll read 10 this fall but I doubt that will happen since I will probably be moving again. Nevertheless- I’m thrilled to be back on my Audible game so hopefully I can at least commit to my audiobooks!

Side note- I am LOVING Nine Perfect Strangers on Hulu. I read the book last summer and I remember not loving it. My mom also read it but enjoyed it way more than I did. However, disliking the book would never stop me from watching any sort of adaptation of something written by Liane Moriarty especially when it stars Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy. Even if you haven’t read the book, I would definitely recommend watching the limited series!
