Addy | 4989 comments Starting today. Feel free to join! So far it's just Terry and I.


Addy | 4989 comments I've only read the first chapter but this reminds me of Sweetheart, Sweetheart by Bernard Taylor.

If that's the case, we know it will be good!


Addy | 4989 comments Oh, yes! That's what I'm thinking!


Addy | 4989 comments Cool! Good to have you R!

Also, I forgot you don't have the book yet Terry but I've only read the first chapter, so no worries:)


Terry | 4849 comments Glad you could join us R!

Thanks Addy. I should be able to start it tomorrow.


Terry | 4849 comments I started it and read up to the start of ch5. Very fluid writing style it seems. Very Interesting and foreboding beginning (view spoiler)

Terry | 4849 comments Sure Latasha, we've just started.

is this book new? there is a waiting list on my reads system for the e-book & audio.

It's not new, but there is a movie coming out in July for it, so I think it's popular again.

Addy | 4989 comments I got to ch5 this morning. I agree with you Terry about the writing style. Sometimes I have to read things twice but I like it.

Me too. I struggled with it a little bit at first, but I got used to it after a while and it was better as I went.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10688 comments Mod
I listened up to chapter 8. I like it! I'm listening so I haven't had the problem yet of having to rewind to understand what they are saying. I watched the trailer for the movie and it looks wonderful.

Addy | 4989 comments I read to ch 7. (view spoiler)

I know! So far, I'm siding with Philip!


Latasha (latasha513) | 10688 comments Mod
This book, so far, is fabulous! I'm loving every minute of it.

I agree, Latasha!

Addy | 4989 comments Wow. I read to ch11. Hmm. Not sure what to think yet other than the fact that they now seem fond of each other.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10688 comments Mod

Latasha (latasha513) | 10688 comments Mod
sorry, I don't know what chapter I'm on.

(view spoiler)


Terry | 4849 comments I was surprised in ch10 (view spoiler)


Terry | 4849 comments Addy wrote: "Ch11[spoilers removed]"

I'm surprised she didn't get the vapours!

Addy | 4989 comments What the heck is getting the vapours anyway!? Is that what you do when someone faints?...lol.


Terry | 4849 comments Addy wrote: "What the heck is getting the vapours anyway!? Is that what you do when someone faints?...lol."

Lol, I have no idea, but I guess so. I wonder where these terrible vapours come from?


Latasha (latasha513) | 10688 comments Mod
lol!

Addy | 4989 comments I absolutely adored what Louise says at the very end of ch12 to our dear Phillip....😲


Terry | 4849 comments Yes, I like Louise, and I think she is seeing more clearly than Phillip! I think she's right with what she said. I stopped at ch14 just a little bit ago.

Terry | 4849 comments Addy wrote: "Ch13[spoilers removed]"

Do you think (view spoiler)

Addy | 4989 comments Absolutely. You've got to read the next chapter now!


Terry | 4849 comments Addy wrote: "Absolutely. You've got to read the next chapter now!"

All these little clues have to mean something, right?? But when Rachel explains things, it all makes sense. As soon as I'm suspicious, I end up changing my mind. In ch15 (view spoiler). I stopped at ch16.


Terry | 4849 comments R. wrote: "This is a re-read for me, but wow! What an amazing writer! I love the first chapter at the crossroads and how it sets up the theme for the entire book."

It definitely gives you that sense of foreboding right off the bat.


Latasha (latasha513) | 10688 comments Mod
I finished and loved it!

Fear of the truth maybe. I'm pretty sure we may find out later.

Addy | 4989 comments Why is she so pleasant yet so evil? Sorry, just a thought i had while reading ch17.


Terry | 4849 comments Addy wrote: "Why is she so pleasant yet so evil? Sorry, just a thought i had while reading ch17."

I'm in the middle of ch16, and while I'm untrusting of her so far, I'm not all the way to feeling that she's evil yet...

Addy | 4989 comments I've stopped at ch19 for now. (view spoiler)


Terry | 4849 comments Addy wrote: "I've stopped at ch19 for now. [spoilers removed]"

I suspected the same thing. (view spoiler)

I suspected the same thing. It certainly makes some sense if we believe the two of them are in this together to get Ambrose's money ..."

Yes. I agree about Christmas. And what a feast! They are always having amazing sounding food. I would love to celebrate like that!
