Review for The Visitors by Catherine Burns

Review for The Visitors by Catherine Burns

 

 

 

 

 

The Visitors is a story of two siblings that are now adults that still live together in the family home. Marion has always came and went as she pleased and left her brother Johns to his secret excursions in the cellar. That is until she has to do into the cellar and discovers just what he has been doing down there all these years, which was quite frightening. My review will be a little vague, it’s just so hard not to give to much away, so have to say I’m sorry in advance.

Marion was verbally abused growing up, never feeling wanted, never believing that she worth anything. Even as an adult, she is still this way. She spends most …

Can’t-Wait Wednesday #10 Better Than Revenge by Elizabeth Adler

Can’t-Wait Wednesday #10 Better Than Revenge by Elizabeth Adler

 
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!

 

This caught my attention when it mentioned twin who are con artists, add in some murder and romance and I was even more intrigued. The wait is a little long but I think it will certainly be worth it.

Review for Magnolia Nights by Ashley Farley

Review for Magnolia Nights by Ashley Farley

 

 

 

 

Magnolia Nights is a wonderful story that takes us through three generations of women set in beautiful southern town, with large antebellum homes and a mystery to uncover all wrapped up together, and Farley’s writing pulled me in the start. After the few chapters, I knew this was going to be one of those books I couldn’t put down.

Ellie has recently inherited her Grandmother’s rather large estate in Charleston. She hasn’t seen nor heard a single word from this women since she was a child, so it was all really stranger to her. Now, Ellie doesn’t remember much from her childhood before she went to live with her father, and some of what she does remember though is filled …

Review for The Silent Fountain by Victoria Fox

Review for The Silent Fountain by Victoria Fox

 

 

 

 
The Silent Fountain is a gothic and historical romance with a little bit of suspense mixed too. This house has some sinister things going on it. What more could I ask for?

Fox takes us back and forth between Vivien Lockhardt in the 70’s and Lucy Whittaker in the present, and it done so with such grace that it flows right into each other. Never confusing, just completely enthralling and with a pace that kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen. Vivien is one those characters who you love, but then you want to hate all at the same time. In the end, I found Vivien to be a wonderful woman, and felt her story deep …
