This book was a bit overwhelming with it’s size alone. The book is 450 pages. The story was also a bit overwhelming but also very interesting. I thought it would be the story of Catherine Dior but I didn’t realize how important her relationship with her brother had been in her life. The book details both siblings and we learn of Catherine’s involvement in WW2 with the French Resistance. Christian’s life as a designer is interesting as well as his creation of the Miss Dior per
I initially assumed this was going to be a romcom but it is more about a young woman discovering what she really wants in life. There is some romance but that is not the central theme. Nora is working for a publishing company in a dead end job. Her hoped for dream job in publishing is not happening and she needs to make some serious life decisions. She is also struggling with depression and has suicidal thoughts so she definitely needs to dig deep and make some big changes in

This was my first book by this author and it was very entertaining. A beautiful and creepy island locale was the setting. Six people end up together on a deserted Island and things get even more interesting when another unwanted person arrives. As the suspense escalates secrets are exposed and loyalties fracture. Some great twists at the end and some I definitely didn’t see coming. This was a suspenseful and enjoyable book!
I have read five of Kaira Rouda’s books and this is one of my favourites. This thriller was packed with suspense and it starts in the first chapter and slowly ramps up. The male characters are all unlikeable so luckily the female characters are more relatable. Kaira always has devious and manipulative characters and this book was no exception although I felt we were given more insight into those characters in this book. If you like psychological thrillers check this one out!

Be sure to pick this one up if you are a historical fiction reader.
This a character driven story based on family dynamics. The brother that feels a disconnect from his family comes home to help his siblings repair a family owned and run resort.

This is a different book about a sports superstar than we usually get! This is a story about Kobe’s formative years - from childhood until the NBA. I found the book very compelling and a great chance to see what made Kobe Bryant who he was. Like him or love him he definitely had a major impact in the NBA and was a role model for many even though he also had his scandals. I really enjoyed learning more about a young Kobe. If you are a basketball fan or Kobe fan you will enjoy
