I was so excited to read the newest Victoria Helen Stone book and the first chapter didn t disappoint me muchWhy did I get the impression as I was plodding through the remaining chapters that this was an old manuscript that was dusted off and given a uick edit to take advantage of the demand for new titles during these COVID TimesThe main character Lauren comes across as vapid and directionless and she really only grew a spine towards the end of the story The plot went in so many directions at once but then seemed to retrace its steps and even repeat itself I was often baffled and even a bit boredThe two narrators Lauren Abrams and her wild cat ungovernable mother Donna could not have been different Lauren was downright wishy washy never able to make up her own mind and afraid of discovering the truth whereas Donna came out with both guns blazing and took no prisoners Or at least she did until she got pregnant with Lauren and then her hormones took over and all of her badass instincts kept being over ruled and misdirected by the gutless and eually faithless Michael Lauren s father Promises promises Seriously DonnaWhat a cast of dull improbable and go nowhere characters Even Donna had me rolling my eyes from time to time You re guessing I was disappointed in this one right YOU D make a great detective Lauren was a bust How on earth did Lauren solve the mystery of who killed that poor girl oops oh yes I forgot Lauren got a confession right from the horse s mouth So there I did guess the shenanigans involving the serial killer but that too was another convoluted story line The writing is still good I give high marks for good grammar but after a while I just prayed for a mercifully swift ending Once you ve read one of the Jane novels indecisive heroines from this author just don t cut it for you any I m rating this one a 34 out of 5 because the author can write a decent sentenceMy thanks to the author publisher and NetGalley for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review

free read The Last One Home 100 Victoria Helen Stone ↠ 0 summary summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Victoria Helen Stone A razor sharp novel of suspense about the lies families tell and those we choose to believe by the Charts bestselling author of Jane DoeLauren Abrams wants nothing to do with her damaged mother whose spurious testimony sent Lauren’s father to prison for murder years ago After a serial killer’s confession to the crime restored justic. I was initially so excited for this book then dreaded it after seeing some lackluster reviews I didn t necessarily dread reading it but I rarely felt the excitement Years ago Lauren s father was in prison for murder He was released when she was 10 after a serial killer confessed to the crime Lauren was thrilled except for the fact that her own mother s testimony put her father in jail in the first place Now years later Lauren has just moved into her paternal grandmother s home Her grandmother is in special care after suffering a stroke Lauren doesn t talk to her mother and can never forgive her for lying When someone claiming to be the imprisoned serial killer reaches out to her a series of events are set in motion What really happened to the woman who was murderedTHE GOOD The premise is exciting and pretty original for the most part There are dual storylinesfrom Lauren s POV in the present and her mother s POV in 1985 I enjoyed parts of each so the past The last 20% revs up and provides the excitement I was waiting for THE NOT SO GOOD I repeat The last 20% revs up and provides the excitement I was waiting for That means for about 80% of the book nothing really happens While I was never painfully bored I couldn t help feeling disappointed after numerous times where I thought Oh this is IT Something is FINALLY happening only to have nothing happen The characters in both storylines make bad choices that had me rolling my eyes All in all I think a shorter book or one with a few surprises could ve made a world of difference While I won t actively recommend it to anyone I encourage those who are curious to also read other reviews when determining if this book is worth looking into Thank you to Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review Expected Publication Date 3302021 Review also posted at

I feel so disappointed right now This was not what I was expecting from this author at all Maybe the fact that I come from reading one of the best thrillers I ve read this year did not help either Where I was expecting of a thriller I found a family drama so slow burning that for a moment I thought the flame had extinguished And when I say slow I mean slooowAs usual lately with this type of books there s a dual timeline In the present storyline we follow Lauren who just moved to her grandma s home after she suffered a stroke She didn t meet her father and his side of the family till she was 10 yo because he was in prison for murder And the one who sent him to prison was Donna Lauren s mother and her testimonyIn the past line it s 1985 and Donna just found out she s pregnant Her boyfriend Michael is married and despite his promises of leaving his wife the divorce never happens so when Donna accuses him of murder everyone thinks she s just resentfulI found both main characters pretty annoying Lauren seemed worried about live streaming her house renovations to make her ex boyfriend jealous for a moment I thought I was watching a Property Brothers episode and Donna was blind to how Michael was a complete piece of sht despite all his wrongdoings The past line was so repetitive I felt I was reading the same scene over and over Michael cheated or lied Donna got angry Michael said sorry and promised it would never happen again and Donna would relent and forgive him Really Wake up girlThere were some side plots introduced early on that I hoped would help to move things forward but they were not used to their full potential and were solved in a lackluster way almost at the endIt is not till the last 10% that the action picks up the pace leading to an ending that felt a bit rushed specially if we consider how many pages of nothingness came beforeAlthough not her best work I ll still keep an eye out for the author s next books specially if it s a follow up on Jane my favorite sociopathAnother fun buddy read with Susan and ChristinaThanks to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review
