    What an excellent book I loved everything about it It was brilliantly written with such strong characters that you could totally believe in The way the author used such descriptive language when depicting the scenery the weather the people everything was so detailed it was as though you were there The storyline gently built up to an excellent ending This book is fairly long but you really don’t realise as it is made up of lots of short chapters that jumped between the past and the present and also between the different characters’ viewpoints and experiences This creates a totally gripping storyline that you have to completely immerse yourself in and that I found very difficult to put down I received this free copy from Voracious Readers Only and I am so glad that I did I totally recommend that you also lose yourself within this sad disturbing gripping story

    La Louisiane Mesmerizing talegripping throughout As a native of Louisiana I found this author described the commonplace unexceptional view of my world as a magical mysterious place Treasure trove of characters some too familiar

    This story started out very very slow Nothing really happened until the 40% mark which is frustrating considering this is almost 500 pages I had a difficult time getting into this book at first because there are SO MANY different viewpoints characters story lines timeline hopping etc I think I would have preferred some of the content to be trimmed There were many side stories that I assumed would come together in the end which they mostly did but I think the book would have been stronger by just leaving some of the side plots out to strengthen the main story instead Overall though the story was pretty good and had a lot of potential I was on the edge of my seat during some bits Multiple trigger warnings that I didn't initially expect that potentially could disturb readers murder rape self harm child abuse child sex abuse suicide etcI did dock a star because the editing could have used some help I barely noticed any issues throughout the first half of the book but by the end of the book there were errors on almost every pageI received a free copy of this book from the publisher

    Intersection between small town mental health family relationships in a psychological thriller Note I was provided a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for my honest reviewEden had a bit of everything that came together to form a long but uick moving read with short chapters that bounced between character voices and historical perspectives in journal entries It was a complex read with a lot of information to absorb and kept me engaged throughoutThe flaws of the characters made them feel real although at times the extremes of their personalities and behaviors made them hard to relate to Overall I was invested in the characters and needed the satisfaction of the conclusion which had some genuine unexpected moments that I enjoyedPotential trigger warnings the book tackles mental health from a variety of angles describes self inflicted wounds mentions rape and details crime scenes

    Eden by WA Schwartz starts out slow and jumps around from past to present uite a bit so it keeps you on your toes with fragments of Evelyn’s memory or imagination leaving you trying to separate the lies and the truths I can usually figure out the plot and come to some type of conclusion before the last chapter however Eden has unending twists that will have your head spinning with shocking discoveries right up to the end and leaving me baffled I found myself wondering about a few of the characters so maybe the Author has plans to write another book making it into a series I received this book from the Author via Voracious Readers and am leaving my honest review JKSlovestoreadJudyKULuvsKUJudy Samson

    Complete concentration neededThis was an extremely detail oriented book with so many moving parts one needed to stay focused for the long run There were so many times I wanted to give up Just forget about finishing but something about the story kept pulling me back I had to know the truth had to know the who and the why Needed to understand the secrets Glad I stuck with it because the ending came out of left field If your looking for uick and easy read this is definitely not it but it's a worthy read

    Captivating story so many cliffhangers and twists It's like a puzzle that comes together slowly I found it a little hard to follow sometimes because there's so many perspectives Should come with a trigger warnings for mental health and related issues thoughI received a copy for review through voraciousreaders
