Good morning! It’s the third Monday in isolation for me. We are on Spring Break this week so at least I have some time to get a bit more organized with my online teaching, and we didn’t have any travel plans we had to cancel so that’s a positive. It will just be “isolation as usual “ for us.
Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!
The book I want to read
After her mother’s suicide, fifteen year-old Lane Roanoke came to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin, Allegra, on their vast estate in rural Kansas. Lane knew little of her mother’s mysterious family, but she quickly embraced life as one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls. But when she discovered the dark truth at the heart of the family, she ran…fast and far away.
Eleven years later, Lane is adrift in Los Angeles when her grandfather calls to tell her Allegra has gone missing. Did she run too? Or something worse? Unable to resist his pleas, Lane returns to help search, and to ease her guilt at having left Allegra behind. Her homecoming may mean a second chance with the boyfriend whose heart she broke that long ago summer. But it also means facing the devastating secret that made her flee, one she may not be strong enough to run from again.
Why I want to read this:
I received an arc of Engel’s second book and devoured it! It was a dark, chilling crime thriller that left me wanting more!
She is a master storyteller and weaves a tale so tangible you feel as if you are right in the mix of the cast of characters.
Because I loved The Familiar Dark so much it was a given that I would want to read The Roanoke Girls!
