Well when I first looked at this months Amazon First Reads choices I was interested in five of the books.
- Lie, Lie Again by Stacy Wise, Pages: 366, Publication Date: 1 January 2021
- Sweet Water by Cara Reinard, Pages: 363, Publication Date: 1 January 2021
- Confessions of a Bookseller by Elizabeth Green, Pages: 483, Publication Date: 1 January 2021
- <The> Marriage Code by Brooke Burroughs, Pages: 379, Publication Date: 1 January 2021
- A Splendid Ruin by Megan Chance, Pages: 347, Publication Date: 1 January 2021
However after reading the synopsis’ a couple of times I still couldn’t make up my mind, so I decided to read the few reviews that were there and as soon as I read them my mind was made up.
It’s funny since I’ve been writing my book reviews, I’ve been taking more notice of other peoples reviews, especially when I’m purchasing books. I think more and more people will probably rely on the book reviews we write, as I’m sure for most of us over the coming year we will all have to tighten our belts and what we spend on books will probably be a lot less than it has been over the last few years.
So I chose:
Lie, Lie Again by Stacy Wise, Pages: 366, Publication Date: 1 January 2021
Synopsis: For three women with so much to hide, there’s no such thing as a little white lie…
All three women who live at 1054 Mockingbird Lane have secrets…and with a body at the bottom of their apartment building’s staircase, those secrets need to stay buried.
Sylvia Webb has a plan. And a potential Mr. Right. He’s sweet, simple, and dependably clueless about what she’s up to. The only thing unpredictable about him is his needy ex-girlfriend, who is this close to shattering Sylvia’s dreams. But Sylvia’s not going to let that happen.
Riki McFarlan has a good career and an amazing boyfriend who wants to settle down. If only she didn’t have feelings for her neighbor—who happens to be her close friend’s husband. With everything going so right, why is Riki flirting with something so wrong, so…dangerous?
Embry Taylor is as devoted to her children as she is to her husband, who’s a bartender by night, an aspiring actor by day. She is his biggest fan. But with his career not taking off and tensions high, even sweet Embry has something she’s desperate to keep hidden.
Lies, secrets, and revenge. For three neighbors with stakes so high, someone is headed for a downfall.
