    3.5 stars This was a quick, easy read that I devoured on a long car ride. I would categorize it under domestic suspense/women?s fiction, not mystery/suspense. After the women in the neighborhood gather around the firepit for a fun evening of chatting and drinking wine, one of th...

    4.5 stars Writing a review of Not That I Could Tell without including any spoilers is tricky so I will keep it short and sweet. The book is fabulous. Strawser focuses on the relationships between a group of woman and the question of how well one human can know another. As the story ...

    I really enjoyed the second novel of Jessica Strawser. Several women meet around the firepit of Clara?s backyard one Saturday night. All of them except Izzy are married with kids. They all have a little too much to drink. By Monday afternoon, the soon-to-be-ex-husband of Kristin ...

    2.5 Another book featuring a group of women living in close proximity together. Another book with a desperate housewives vibe, though this one does have a serious subject underlying the surface goings on in this neighborhood. I wish I could say I connected with this story, but the trut...

    4.5 stars, rounded up. Boy, do I love a little bit of soapy neighborhood melodrama and mystery... "It's no great accomplishment to get someone to believe a lie. It's not that hard, really. Look at me: doctor's wife, working mom, good neighbor. You've already summed me up, haven't...

    *4.5 stars* Picking up an author?s second book?especially one following a debut as stunning as Almost Missed You?sparks a certain level of excitement on my part that often coincides with a tiny bit of apprehension. For me, it?s almost a test of sorts. Will that sophomore off...

    I hate giving a book 2 stars, but this just wasn?t the book for me. This is a story about a group of women living on the same street and one goes missing...and that was about it up until 70 % , when we had a little action, then it fizzled back out. The final reveal was not at all ...

    Solid mystery, reminiscent of Liane Moriarty, but more low key in intensity. I think this story is about relationships more than anything else. The mystery propels the story forward, but what is front and center throughout is the relationships between the women in this small neighb...

    This is a quick and easy read that seems more of a women's fiction or domestic drama than suspense or thriller. There is indeed a mystery and missing people involved, but the focus of the book is on those left behind. Part of the ending was strong, but I wasn't as attached to the chara...
