This stuff is awesome, and it’s only like $12. I picked it up on a whim at Ulta, and it’s working better for me than any of my expensive brands. It’s very buildable, long lasting, and isn’t flaking.

To be fair, I’m also using Burt’s Bees Facial Oil, which has resurrected my dry af skin.

I’m crying as I write this review. This book touched my heart in a way that hasn’t happened in some time.

This historical fiction is about packhorse librarians in the Appalachian Mountains around 1935. But more than that, it is a celebration of love, reading, and female friendship. I absolutely adored it. I have all the feels right now. I’m so sad that the story is over.

This ended up being better than I expected. It’s filled with unlikeable, but interesting, characters. About 30% in, I thought I knew exactly how things were going to unfold, but there ended up being a few unexpected twists. It’s a fast read. Good, but not great. You’ll have to suspend disbelief to get through it. That said, it’s well written, and I’m now interested in checking out the author’s other books.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

3 1/2 stars.

This was very twisty; maybe too twisty. But it was also highly entertaining and kept me wanting to know more. I couldn’t put it down. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the ending, however. It left me feeling somewhat disappointed. Still, this is a good read, and I recommend it to anyone who digs character driven mysteries.
