{Arc Review} Stolen Things by R.H Herron

Book Summary:
A sensational crime, a missing teen, and a mother and daughter with no one to trust but themselves come together in this shocking debut thriller by R. H. Herron.
“Mama? Help me.”
Laurie Ahmadi has worked as a 911 police dispatcher in her quiet Northern California town for nearly two decades. She considers the department her family; her husband, Omid, is its first Arab American chief, and their teenaged daughter, Jojo, has grown up with the force. So when Laurie catches a 911 call and, to her horror, it’s Jojo, the whole department springs into action.
Jojo, drugged, disoriented, and in pain, doesn’t remember how she ended up at the home of Kevin Leeds, a pro football player famous for his on-the-field activism and his work with the CapB—“Citizens Against Police Brutality”—movement. She doesn’t know what happened to Kevin’s friend and trainer, whose beaten corpse is also discovered in the house. And she has no idea where her best friend Harper, who was with her earlier in the evening, could be.
But when Jojo begins to dive into Harper’s social media to look for clues to her whereabouts, Jojo uncovers a shocking secret that turns everything she knew about Harper—and the police department—on its head. With everything they thought they could rely on in question, Laurie and Jojo begin to realize that they can’t trust anyone to find Harper except themselves . . . and time is running out.

My Review:

Stolen Things is a mother’s worse nightmare. When being a 911 operator, you never never thought getting a haunting call by your daughter. This book is very chilling read. The story line was good and the can really connect with each characters in the book.

Laurie is good at her job and friends with the cops on the force. She even marry to a cop. Her life seems well and so busy with work. One phone can change her life around.

Jojo, Lurie’s daughter, wakes up in a stranger house. With no memory of what happen that night, she calls for help. Jojo been leading a secret life her parents never knew about. When her friend goes missing, will her serects be revealed. What really what happen to Jojo?

This new mystery/thriller I liked. It has some good twists and turns in it. I do like the cover of this book. It seems innocent the cover. It may have sensitive stuff in it for people. Not sure it’s young adult or adult read. Sorry I have liked the summary and was intrigued with the cover when my friend gave it to me. The book comes out Aug 20th. Something you might want to put on TBR.

Happy Reading!!!

Romanov by Nadine Brandes

Book Summary:
The history books say I died.
They don’t know the half of it.
Anastasia “Nastya” Romanov was given a single mission: to smuggle an ancient spell into her suitcase on her way to exile in Siberia. It might be her family’s only salvation. But the leader of the Bolshevik army is after them, and he’s hunted Romanov before.
Nastya’s only chances of saving herself and her family are to either release the spell and deal with the consequences, or enlist help from Zash, the handsome soldier who doesn’t act like the average Bolshevik. Nastya has only dabbled in magic, but it doesn’t frighten her half as much as her growing attraction to Zash. She likes him. She thinks he might even like her.
That is, until she’s on one side of a firing squad . . . and he’s on the other.

My Review:

Romanov was such another good Anastasia retelling. There been a lot of retellings of the story. Some are true and some are fantasy. The real story is sad, but some people like to make a happy ending story for Princess Anastasia. This book stays close almost close to the real story with a hint of magic to it.

Anastasia in this book, she don’t understand why Rasputin had to die in the begining of the book. People with magical abilities being hunted down and now her family is in trouble for harboring one. Slowly she learning magic herself to heal her sick brother. When her family is taken away, she find a hidden doll. This doll could be the key in saving the family. Now trapped and heavily guarded, will she find out it secrets before it’s to late?

This book you will fall in love with the Romanov familym You will bond with them as they cope being hole up all the time. Maybe fall in love with some guards, who seem nice. But who can the family really trust? If you mood for something magical, and into retellings. You may not be disappointed. Also you can check it out at the library if your unsure.

Happy Reading!!!!!

The Best Lies by Sara Lyu

Book Summary:
Remy Tsai used to know how her story would turn out. But now, she doesn’t even know what tomorrow will look like.
She was happy once. Remy had her boyfriend Jack, and Elise, her best friend—her soulmate—who understood her better than anyone else in the world.
But now Jack is dead, shot through the chest—
And it was Elise who pulled the trigger.
Was it self-defense? Or something deeper, darker than anything Remy could have imagined? As the police investigate, Remy does the same, sifting through her own memories, looking for a scrap of truth that could save the friendship that means everything to her.
Told in alternating timelines, Thelma and Louise meets Gone Girl in this twisted psychological thriller about the dark side of obsessive friendship.

My Review:

The Best Lies was such a thrill ride. I really did enjoy the story and love the characters in it.

Remy and Elise are prefect for each other. They been through a lot of tough times together and are hardly ever a part. What happens when one of them just snap?

Right off bat the book starts off with Jack’s death. It is told in flashbacks on Remy and Elise friendship, and up until that night. With Remy still in shock and trying to come into grips what happen. Is she willing to protect Elise, and what really happen to Jack?

This book was a roller coaster ride. I really was hooked onto the story from begining until to end. I’m glad I picked it on sale for 50% at barnes and nobles, and gave it a shot. The cover is so sweet and innocent. Could read this book over and over again. If your in mood for some new mystery/thriller reads, you’ll be in for a treat.

Happy Reading!!!!
