Book Review – The Life We Bury

By Allen Eskens

This is a story of redemption, mystery and intrigue. I truly fell in love with a number of the characters in this book. Brilliant storytelling and character development weaves this tale of mystery together with just enough suspense and humour to make both your toes curl and your lips smile. I was sad when it ended after listening through the whole story in only two sittings. A young college student interviews a Vietnam Veteran who has been convicted of murder for a school project. However, the student gets more from the interview than just a school paper. A story of love, family struggles and resilience.

Book Review – The Guest List

By Lucy Foley

If, like me, you like curling up on a winters day with a hot chocolate and a great, atmospheric whodunit then the Guest List is the book for you. It is written from multiple viewpoints (only 5 so it’s not a cast of thousands) but it isn’t at all confusing. The book is very like a modern take on Agatha Christie. It is set on Cormorant Island during the high profile wedding of Jules and Will – and then the lights go out. That’s all I’m going to tell you about the story because you really should read it and as we are moving into rainy, winter weather it is the perfect time of year to do so.
