The View from Rainshadow Bay by Colleen Coble *Review+Book Tour+Giveaway*

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours and Thomas Nelson for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and for having me on this book tour!

Starting off with a bang, I was immediately drawn into the danger surrounding Shauna and her family with a murderer on her tail.  I wanted to know who the killer was and why they were killing.  However, although the beginning pulls you in the rest of the book is a little disjointed and didn’t always feel convincing at times.  I rate this mystery 3 stars.

The Lucky Ones by Tiffany Reisz is weird in a way that makes you unable to look away, it draws you in and before you know it you’ve devoured this dark tale in one sitting.  With definite “Flowers in the Attic” vibes this book will grab you from page one and make you question what is right and what is wrong all the way until the very end.  I rate this unique story 3.5/5 stars!

Beartown by Fredrik Backman *Review*

This book, wow, I finished over a week ago and yet I couldn’t get myself to write a review right away.  It still brings tears to my eyes and tugs on my heartstrings.  I almost don’t know how to review this because any review I write will be insufficient.  This story is powerful, emotional, and important.  Characters written only the way Backman can write them, a story line that draws you in slowly and impacts you for long after, and an author that is nothing short of inspiring.  Another favorite book has been added to my shelf, 5 whole beautiful stars.

In Every Moment We Are Still Alive by Tom Malmquist *Review+Book Tour+Giveaway*

Thank you so much TLC Book Tours and Melville House for sending me a copy of this book for review and having me on this book tour!

Tom Malmquist writes a heartbreaking fictional story based on what he experienced in his own personal life. The grief he deals with is profound and what he has to go through in the wake of that grief is almost unbearable.  A touching story with insights into the Swedish culture, though the writing was not my favorite, I rated this book 3 stars.
