This has been my only 5 star read of the entire year. I was intrigued from page 1. I kept thinking I knew what was going on and how it was going to end. But it wasn’t what I expected at all. The writing style as a letter was absolutely brilliant.
The Turn of the Key

Jewell never fails to provide an interesting story. It was more than anything thought-provoking: what moments in our lives have lead us to this very moment? Was there anything we could do better to save the lives of loved ones? Twisted tale is worth every minute.

I read The Girl on the Train so quickly. All the characters are a little odd which I think makes this book so good - no one wants to read about the “perfect” person, when we are all imperfect.I started to suspect the culprit early on, but was still surprised in the end. I was rooting for Rachel the entire story - including continually yelling at her through the pages. I could feel her embarrassment and shame. The story was brilliant.

Everyone I follow said it was 4-5 stars. I had to pick it up when it was on sale. And it did not disappoint! You have an idea of the killer - they definitely are suspicious BUT in the way it is revealed and caught, I would have NEVER anticipated that. I couldn’t stop flipping the page. I don’t think I’ve ever read that quickly. Definitely a great winter thriller!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ First of all - the prologue set up the story so well. You were routing for Mam to come back the whole time. You are just waiting for Etty to learn to forgive for that moment the entire book. In general the story was slow, but the prologue kept pushing me to finish it. I never expected the last 5 chapters or so to be what they were. Pack some tissues for this read.. These sisters will take you on one emotional ride.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is the first book I’ve read in the series (picked up at a bargain sale). I’m sure this would have been a little less confusing and I would have been more connected to the characters if I would have read others first. But nonetheless, it was a good book. I found myself staying up for “one” more chapter. I expected the storylines to come together more, but it ended up being two different stories with common characters - BOGO deal, I guess. Overall, worth the couple dollars I paid an
