About this deal

Overall, an enjoyable, well written book which had me guessing and trying to figure out who killed Blake.

I'm sure the story would have got a bit more interesting as it went on, but it was very 'samey', and I am afraid to say, read quite poorly, with pauses in the narrative which spoiled the flow of the story. It is a slow burn of a story, with the past of each wife being revealed through chapters of alternative points of view. Also, I do have to put caution out there for more sensitive readers: While nothing is told in first person or completely graphic in nature, the novel does contain numerous references to more extreme fetishes, so to speak, and abuse to minors. Mia reminds Stacey of her sister in many ways, including a hidden condition she was once forced to suffer alone.I didn't even care that it was multi-POV (not a narrative style I usually like) because each of the three wives were all so distinct and interesting in their own way. A few of the books on this list I’ve already been lucky enough to read, and the rest of them are all on my personal to-read pile for the weeks ahead—but I’m excited about all of them. These would be minor things but for the fact that the whole plot centers around religion, so to have such an obvious confusion of facts on the main subject matter was a head-scratcher to me.

Attraverso il racconto di queste tre donne, Cate Quinn aiuta il lettore ad abbattere ogni pregiudizio e ad accettarle per quelle che sono: donne con un passato di sofferenza che provano a riscattarsi. There's expertly crafted fights, banter, and suspense that continued to keep me on the edge of my seat.BLOOD SISTERS will be published in September, but thanks to Vanessa and her publisher, we’re able to get an exclusive early glimpse into the book right here in today’s blog post!
