One of my new favorites! Gilded Age New York has always been one of my favorite settings, and this beautifully told mystery uses it not only as a setting, but as a character. Engaging plot, heartbreaking characters, and a galloping pace kept me at th ...more

I had an itch. It was right between my shoulder blades, and I couldn't reach it. I tried to get it with this book. The nostalgia, the complicated family relationships, the hint of mystery that unravels throughout the story. It usually hits my sweet s ...more

I think there are only two ways I could have finished this book. First, if I were accountable to someone else for finishing it, say, a book club, and second, if I didn't have to sit down and turn pages through sermonettes about environmentalism and s ...more

I had to finish this book. Compelling, exciting, entertaining, and just a tiny bit scary, this book had me up until nearly dawn to see the ending. It did not disappoint.

This was the perfect summer read for me. Funny, lovely characters with enough substance for good thought, but not enough for heaviness. I laughed, I cried.

Every time I start to describe this book it ends up sounding like a book I'd hate. Dystopia? Dungeons and Dragons? Anxious teenaged boys? Still trying to figure out why I loved this book, by my working theory has something to do with compelling writi ...more
