The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond – 4 stars
Received from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. A newlywed couple gets themselves sucked into a secret, dark society. It’s equal parts creepy, intriguing and unbelievable. Wasn’t sure how I felt about the ending, it seemed like a let down but I didn’t exactly hate it. Overall, a great story because it really sucks you in. I stayed up a few nights much later than I should have because I didn’t want to put it down!
Received from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. This is a traditional, who dunnit novel. It follows the few months before and after the murder of a high school senior told from her own and others perspectives. Everyone is a suspect in this one and I thought it was really good. It was really up in the air who the murderer was until the very end.
Lauren Graham is one of my favorite actresses and her fiction novel was a little bit of a let down for me but this made up for it. I love her personality and learning about her life and experiences. Any Gilmore Girls fan would enjoy this of course, but she also had a lot of insight into acting and writing. I especially liked the Kitchen Timer exercise she talks about and want to implement that to be a better writer. I listened to this on Audible and it was definitely fun hearing her narrate her own story.
Another Audible listen. I always enjoy a Moyes novel, my favorite love stories. This one was a little slow in some parts, especially the middle but overall good.
