Thank you to MIRA for an invite to the blog tour!

In Hannah Mary McKinnonโ€™s psychological thriller, SISTER DEAR (MIRA Trade; May 26, 2020; $17.99), the obsession of Single White Female meets the insidiousness of You, in a twisted fable about the ease of letting in those who wish us harm, and that mistakeโ€™s dire consequences.

The day he dies, Eleanor Hardwicke discovers her father โ€“ the only person who has ever loved her โ€“ is not her father. Instead, her biological father is a wealthy Portland businessman who wants nothing to do with her and to continue his life as if she doesnโ€™t exist. That isnโ€™t going to work for Eleanor.

Eleanor decides to settle the score. So, she befriends his daughter Victoria, her perfect, beautiful, carefree half-sister who has gotten all of lifeโ€™s advantages while Eleanor has gotten none.

As she grows closer to Victoria, Eleanorโ€™s obsession begins to deepen. Maybe she can have the life she wants, Victoriaโ€™s life, if only she can get close enough.

– MIRA

The premise of this book sounds SO GOOD! It starts off with secrets and they seem to get deeper and deeper! Can’t wait to dive into Sister Dear? Here’s an excerpt!

Chapter 1

The police didnโ€™t believe me.

A jury wouldnโ€™t have, either, if Iโ€™d gone on trial, and most definitely not the judge. My attorney had more than a few reservations about my story. Ms. Allerton hadnโ€™t said as much. She didnโ€™t need to. I saw it in her eyes, could tell by the way she shuffled and reshuffled her papers, as if doing so might shake my lies clean off the pages, leaving only the truth behind in her inky, royal blue swirls.

After our first meeting Iโ€™d concluded she mustโ€™ve known early onโ€”before she shook my hand with her icy fingersโ€”that I was a liar. Before sheโ€™d walked into the room in shiny, four-inch heels, sheโ€™d no doubt decided sheโ€™d heard my excuses, or a variation thereof, from countless clients already. I was yet another person claiming to be innocent. Another criminal whoโ€™d remained adamant theyโ€™d done nothing wrong, it wasnโ€™t their fault, honest, despite the overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary, a wall of impending doom surrounding me.

And still, at the time Iโ€™d believed the only reason Ms. Allerton had taken on my case pro-bono was because of the amount of publicity it gave her firm. Reducing my sentenceโ€”for there would be oneโ€”would amplify her legacy as a hot-shot lawyer. Iโ€™d accepted her help. There was no other option. I needed her knowledge, her expertise, saw her as my final hope. I now know her motivations were something else Iโ€™d miscalculated. All hope extinguished. Game over.

If Iโ€™m being fair, the judgements Ms. Allerton and other people had made about me werenโ€™t completely wrong. I had told lies, some, anyway. While that stripped away part of my claim to innocence, it didnโ€™t mean I was entirely guilty. Not of the things everybody said Iโ€™d done. Things Iโ€™d had no choice but to confess to, despite that being my biggest lie of all.

But Iโ€™ll tell you the truth. The whole truth and nothing but. Iโ€™ll start at the beginning, and share everything that happened. Every last detail leading up to one fateful night. The night someone died because of me. The night I lost you, too.

I wonโ€™t expect your forgiveness. Our relationshipโ€”or lack thereofโ€”will have gone way beyond that point. No. All I can hope for, is that my side of the story will one day help you understand why I did the things I did.

And why I have to do the things Iโ€™ve not yet done.

๐ŸŒž May Wrap Up ๐ŸŒž

Guys I am so proud of myself this month! For the first time ever, I finished all my arcs releasing this month! This is giving me a huge boost of motivation to keep it up!

I competed in both Words & Whimsy Reading Challenge and the Bookemon Readathon. I finished criteria in WWRC, which I’m always excited about. I ended up reading 12 books again this month! I also read a few books over 600 pages, which is kind of unheard of from me!

My favorite read this month was From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L Armentrout. I couldn’t put it down. My least favorite was probably The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea. I just had a lot of trouble with the pacing and found myself getting bored.

Here’s what I ended up reading this month!

๐Ÿง› Down the TBR Part 24 ๐Ÿง›

Sheesh I don’t know what happened this week. I’ve joined a workout/nutrition accountability group and it’s been hard to work that into my routine along with everything else! It also didn’t help I was going to sleep before 8pm every night. ONE DAY I will figure out how to stay up like an adult. One day.

So I chose the vampire emoji today because 8/15 books we are looking at today are vampire books! I loved Crave recently, so maybe I’ll find another series to keep!

We are starting at 1790 books. Let’s see where we end!

โœ” What I Kept โœ”

Obsessed by Susan Andersen

An ER physician stalked! It’s two of my favorite things – medicine and crime! Not that I do crimes. I just like reading them.

Marked by PC Cast and Kristin Cast

I had this marked as read, but I have zero recollection of it. Apparently I read it 4 years ago. It sounds good, so I’ll give this series a go.

Body Work by Fiona Brand

A novelist doesn’t know where her inspiration came from – real life events she has blocked. Now the killer wants to silence her. Yesssss.

Lust by Violet Blue

Set of sexy short stories. I’m remembering this for when I have my next slump!

โœ˜ What I Deleted โœ˜

Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse #4. I’ve read the whole series previously!

What Stella Wants by Nancy Bartholomew

It’s listed as romance/mystery, but just didn’t catch my attention.

The Silken Web by Sandra Brown

Sounds too much of a chick lit romance.

You’ve Got Male by Elizabeth Bevarly

The synopsis was a little weird. Seems very chick lit.

Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom

I’m not a huge fan of his. Just not my style.

Well we are ending at 1782! Slowly but surely making it through the pile. I’m excited for the new vampire series I found. I hope it lives up to my expectations! I will say they are high after reading Crave!

What did you think of my choices? Would you have done anything different? Let me know in the comments below!

๐Ÿค Title : This Is How I Lied
๐Ÿค Author : Heather Gudenkauf

๐Ÿค Publish Date : May 12, 2020
๐Ÿค Genre : Mystery/Thriller
๐Ÿค Book Form : E-ARC

Thank you to Park Row books for an invite to this blog tour and a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

With the eccentricity of Fargo and the intensity of Sadie, THIS IS HOW I LIED by Heather Gudenkauf (Park Row Books; May 12, 2020; $17.99) is a timely and gripping thriller about careless violence we can inflict on those we love, and the lengths we will go to make it right, even 25 years later.

Tough as nails and seven months pregnant, Detective Maggie Kennedy-Oโ€™Keefe of Grotto PD, is dreading going on desk duty before having the baby her and her husband so badly want. But when new evidence is found in the 25-year-old cold case of her best friendโ€™s murder that requires the work of a desk jockey, Maggie jumps at the opportunity to be the one who finally puts Eve Knoxโ€™s case to rest.

Maggie has her work cut out for her. Everyone close to Eve is a suspect. Thereโ€™s Nola, Eveโ€™s little sister whoโ€™s always been a little… off; Nick, Eveโ€™s ex-boyfriend with a vicious temper; a Schwinn riding drifter who blew in and out of Grotto; even Maggieโ€™s husband Sean, who may have known more about Eveโ€™s last day than heโ€™s letting on. As Maggie continues to investigate, the case comes closer and closer to home, forcing her to confront her own demons before she can find justice for Eve.

Guys. I could NOT put this book down! This is one of the ones I was trying to sneakily read at work. It was so twisty. I had to know what was happening next! This was a Grade A thriller!

Maggie is a detective following in her dad’s footsteps. She’s 7 months pregnant and about to tell her boss she wants desk duty until the baby comes. She goes in for a meeting and is surprised to find out they are opening up a cold case from 25 years ago – the murder of her BEST FRIEND!

This story is told in a dual timeline – what is happening now and what happened that fateful day 25 years ago. I loved reading Eve’s POV. It was so interesting to know what happened to the victim and what evens lead to her murder.

Literally everyone in this book is suspect. Maggie, her husband, Eve’s sister, Eve’s boyfriend, the neighbors. I even suspected Maggie’s dad at one point! You can trust no one in this story.

I flew through this book. I had to know who really killed Eve. I remember texting my friend saying “I’m at 89% and I cannot believe anything that is happening!” I was so surprised at the whole ending. The last 10% had me on the edge of my seat!

I fully, 100% recommend this book to any thriller lover. You will not be disappointed!

Heather Gudenkauf is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of many books, including The Weight of Silence and These Things Hidden. Heather graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in elementary education, has spent her career working with students of all ages. She lives in Iowa with her husband, three children, and a very spoiled German Shorthaired Pointer named Lolo. In her free time, Heather enjoys spending time with her family, reading, hiking, and running.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ Down the TBR Part 23 ๐Ÿ‘ฉ

Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! I am so excited to spend the day with my son. He will be three on Tuesday and I just can’t believe how fast time is flying!

Today we’re starting the TBR at 1800. I keep adding more books! I can’t help it, they all sound so good! Hopefully we can weed some out today!

โœ” What I Kept โœ”

A Crack in Forever by Jeannie Brewer

This isn’t something I’d normally keep, but the MC is a doctor, and it;s written by a doctor, so I’ll give it a go.

Tending Lives by Echo Heron

I love nonfic about nursing. Love it!

โœ˜ What I Deleted โœ˜

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real by Neta Jackson

I’ve deleted the rest of this series.

Being Elizabeth by Barbara Taylor Bradford

The synopsis just didn’t grab my attention.

Fat Tuesday by Sandra Brown

Just didn’t sound like something I’d enjoy. A cop goes after who he thinks is a crooked lawyer.

The Witness by Sandra Brown

Another legal drama that just seems eh.

Leaving Normal by Stef Ann Holm

Just seems too chick lit for my tastes.

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Removing because I’ve read it already! It’s been a while, but the longer the series went on the less I liked it, so I don’t think I’ll do a reread.

Club Dead by Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse #3

We got down to 1792! It helps that I read a series I still had listed as ‘Want to Read’. We still have a long way to go but I’m so excited to weed out all these books I won’t read!

What did you think of my choices? Let me know in the comments below!

๐Ÿค” Down the TBR Part 22 ๐Ÿค”

Another week to clear this forever long TBR! I did go an make sure a lot of my arcs were on my TBR, so we’re starting at 1794, which is more than last week. Let’s get right into it!

โœ” What I Kept โœ”

French Silk by Sandra Brown

I’m kind of a sucker for stories set in New Orleans. Plus this is a woman who is falling in love and trying to prove her innocence but has secrets she has sworn to take to the grave!

The Chamber by John Grisham

I said I didn’t like legal thrillers, but this is set in MS. And I’ve read another Grisham book and liked it, so I’ll give this one a go.

A Time to Kill by John Grisham

Another legal thriller, but this is also set in MS and by Grisham so I’ll give it a try.

It’s Not Easy Being Green by Jim Henson

I got this book when I graduated nursing school as a gift. I should probably read it.

โœ˜ What I Deleted โœ˜

Texas Heat by Fern Michaels

I’ve deleted the others in the series.

Pursuit by Karen Robards

The synopsis just didn’t stick out to me.

A Whole New Light by Sandra Brown

Just very chick lit romance. Eh.

The Crush by Sandra Brown

The synopsis seemed kind of convoluted, so I feel like the story may be the same way.

Unspeakable by Sandra Brown

A psychopath escapes prison and tries to kill a deaf mom and her kids. No thanks.

Smash Cut by Sandra Brown

Not a huge fan of legal thrillers, and this is like a mix of that and a normal mystery with some romance thrown in? I’m going to pass.

We are ending the TBR at 1788. Not too bad! I’m so ready to get through all these books and get a true TBR!

What did you think of my decisions? Would you have made any different ones? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…

๐Ÿ˜ท Down the TBR Part 21 ๐Ÿ˜ท

I hope everyone is staying safe out there! I’m still working a reduced schedule, which I love! I don’t know what I am going to do when I go back to working full time. I have gotten so much reading done! I am for sure going to miss by 12-4 hours.

This week, we are starting the TBR at 1785. I am going to do a quick one today, looking at 10 books. My toddler is occupied for now, but I never know how long that’s going to last.

โœ” What I Kept โœ”

The Nosy Neighbor by Fern Michaels
This one seems cute, along with some intrigue! I’ll usually give it a chance if the FBI is involved.

Hot Ice by Nora Roberts
This one sounds so good! I love a romantic suspense.

โœ˜ What I Deleted โœ˜

Seasons of Her Life by Fern Michaels
This one is just too chick-lit for me.

Blue Dahlia by Nora Roberts
This one just didn’t catch my interest.

Black Rose by Nora Roberts
This is book #2 to Blue Dahlia.

Texas Rich by Fern Michaels
I thought I already deleted this from my TBR. I know I deleted the others in the series.

Texas Heat by Fern Michaels
Maybe I deleted books 3 and 4. I know I deleted Texas something!

Private Scandals by Nora Roberts
This one also sounds super chick lit.

Listen to Your Heart by Fern Michaels
Another super chick lit romance.

Kentucky Rich by Fern Michaels
I am fairly certain I have deleted the other books in this series.

I ended this one pretty well. Only kept 2/10. We are ending the week at 1778! I am going to go through and make sure all my ARCs are on my TBR, so the number may be a little different next week!

What did you think of my selections? Are there any I should have kept? Let me know in the comments below!

Thank you to Netgalley and Quercus for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.

Thirty-two-year-old Jessica is newly divorced and has returned home to live with her parents whilst she puts the pieces of her life back together. But Jessica isn’t the only one with problems, as her mother, Jean, has recently been diagnosed with dementia.

Shortly after Jessica’s arrival, one of the neighbours falls to her death, in what appears to be a terrible accident. However, Jean claims that the woman was murdered by her husband and that she witnessed the whole thing.

With Jean’s memory rapidly deteriorating, her family dismiss her story, believing Jean is confused. But when Jessica learns that the couple next door’s marriage may have been in trouble, she begins to wonder if her mother did see something after all.

Jessica is determined to discover the truth, but soon uncovers much more than she bargained for…

– Goodreads

I was super interested to read this book. My grandfather had Alzheimer’s, so I was excited to read about an MC with it. It’s an awful disease, but I wanted to see how Karen Cole would spin the character. I thought Jean was very believable. I saw parallels to what my grandpa went though. You never know what to believe in those early to mid stages. Sometimes they seem fine, and sometimes they aren’t. It was heartbreaking.

Jessica was a great protagonist. She was smart, questioned everything, trusted the wrong people. It made for a very compelling story. I was gripping my seat at the end! There’s a surprise hero and a ton of action.

I was a little disappointed that the beginning mystery ended up not being the mystery that was investigated. The one that was investigated was compelling, but I wanted closure on the first mystery! I was left with questions and was a little disappointed.

The mystery that was investigated was full of family drama and secrets, one of my favorite things in a thriller. You were left questioning everyone and everything. The ending shocked me! I think I audibly gasped when I realized who the villain was! I did not see it coming.

I would definitely recommend if you are a thriller lover! I was invested from the get-go.

Down the TBR Part 20

Ah! Part 20 of my down the TBR! I’ve reviewed way more than 200 books, but this is really helping me get a true TBR. Today we will go through 20 more books that I added on July 15, 2015. I feel like this is gonna be a good one. Plus, I will finally get below 1800 books! Woooo!

โœ” What I Kept โœ”

Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult
This has everything I usually hate! Chick lit, Amish, adult fiction. But for some reason this just sounds so good! I have to give it a try.

Mercy by Jodi Picoult
Mercy killings are a hot topic, one I love to discuss. I can’t turn a book away with that topic!

About Face by Fern Michaels
Super cute cover. Doctor MC. Memory loss and a mystery. I’m all about it.

The Third Circle by Amanda Quick
I’m pretty sure I added the other books in this series.

Charming Lily by Fern Michaels
I went back and forth, and at the last minute decided to give this one a chance. It’s set in Mississippi and seems like it might have a good mystery.

โœ˜ What I Deleted โœ˜

Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult
This one just didn’t grab my attention the way Plain Truth did. It doesn’t seem like something I’d enjoy.

Songs of the Humpback Whale by Jodi Picoult
This one seems way too romance-y, chick-lit for me.

Snow Angels by Fern Michaels
This is a book of four novellas. The reviews weren’t great and it didn’t really grab my attention, so I’ll pass.

Weekend Warriors by Fern Michaels
#1 in the Sisterhood series. Something about these books just makes me cringe and makes me feel so uneasy.

Lethal Justice by Fern Michaels
Again, #6 in the Sisterhood series

Fast Track by Fern Michaels
#10 in the Sisterhood series, and I remember deleting others in this series.

Razor Sharp by Fern Michaels
#14 in the Sisterhood Series.

Texas Fury by Fern Michaels
#3 in Texas series. The synopsis did not make me want to go and read the first two.

What You Wish For by Fern Michaels
I don’t know why I have so many by Fern, but most of her works just do not entice me.

The Scoop by Fern Michaels
Another very chick lit book. This just screams something that my mom would read. Or my Meme.

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Removing this ONLY because I have read it before. It was before the movie came out. I remember seeing the movie and being SO pissed at the ending. This is a great book, though.

Pretty Woman by Fern Michaels
The synopsis just didn’t call to me. Very chick lit.

Kentucky Heat by Fern Michaels
#2 in the Kentucky series, and I’m pretty sure I deleted the first one.

Fool Me Once by Fern Michaels
Another very chick lit read.

Serendipity by Fern Michaels
I just couldn’t even get into reading the synopsis.

This was a pretty good turnout! I deleted 15 books, bringing my TBR to 1785! I have deleted so many since starting this. I still have a long way to go, but it is still so satisfying. I only have 35 books left from July 15, 2015, so I’ll probably cover all those in the next post! I’m ready to move on from this day. I think it’s taken the whole month!

What do you think of my choices? Were there any that you would have kept or deleted? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…
