It's A Wonderful Life!
Review of the Amazon Original Stories Kindle eBook (March 19, 2024), released simultaneously with the Audible Original audiobook.

My lede is a bit lame, but the memory of the old time Jimmy Stewart / Christmas redemption movie from 1946 was what struck me as I started writing this review. Jade is a bit of a sad sack who has decided to end her life in New York City after having one final meal at a restaurant where she always went with her father to celebrate her birthday until he died in a car accident 10 years earlier. Jade blames herself for his death and her life has spiraled downwards ever since. But then she sees her father outside the restaurant!

A series of pretty fantastic and elaborate coincidences and convenient revelations then follow which lead to a final twist. None of it is very realistic but it did keep me reading to find out how it all turns out. Most of my satisfaction was actually from a karma payback subplot which I won't spoil 🤐.

Everywhere You Look is one of six Amazon Original Stories Kindle eBooks/Audible Audio audiobooks released on March 19, 2024 as part of the Never Tell Collection of short stories which are promoted with the collective description:
"How well do you know people? How well do they know you? Six award-winning, bestselling authors of suspense explore the lingering threat of secrets and the inescapable fear that they can’t stay buried forever. No matter how dark the hiding place, the consequences of revealing the truth can bring out the worst in lovers, friends, family, and strangers."

Absolutely unputdownable domestic thriller!

When Amber Patterson sets her mind to something, nothing gets in her way. She, a nobody from Nebraska, has plans. When she finds and stalks the beautiful and uber wealthy Daphne Parrish, Amber is determined to become part of her world. Daphne has the perfect life -- super gorgeous rich husband, Jackson, and two lovely daughters. They live in a mansion in Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, and they are the ultimate power couple. Amber's envy and ambition are undaunted, and she will do anything to get what she deserves.

This was so deliciously good that I could not stop reading and listening to the audiobook at the same time. The pacing was perfect as the plot unfolded. The twists were surprising as the revelations came fast and flawlessly timed. I fell right into it and enjoyed every minute. Very well drawn multidimensional characters and their behavior evoked all the reactions. The narration was well done and a pleasant listening experience. I highly recommend this in either the audio and/or e-book formats.

Best of all, a sequel is in the works and I can't wait!

This is my first time reading the amazing writer duo, Liv Constantine. I love that sisters Lynne and Valerie Constantine have become a writing team, producing suspenseful stories. The Last Time I Saw You took me on an interesting, who dunnit adventure with Kate and her childhood best friend, Blaire. Kate is a surgeon, from a wealthy family with a husband and young daughter.

Kate and Blaire have been estranged friends for several years. Kate’s mom, Lily, is murdered and she reaches out for Blaire to come to her side. Once Blaire arrives, there are tensions among Kate’s current inner circle. Blaire is determined to find out who killed Lily. It appears the killer is close to Kate, which increases the level of suspense and fear. There’s a lot of secrets and suspicious behavior that keeps the momentum building.

There are a couple of personal annoyances I experienced with the story. One is Kate’s pretentious lifestyle. It later made sense and had a purpose as the story concluded. Second, as Kate is on the brink of losing her sanity, she literally freaks out every time something unexpected occurs. I understand the stress she is under and the trauma she is experiencing. There are a few times, her reaction is too impulsive and over-the-top.

I seldom intentionally try to solve the mystery when reading, and try to just sit back and enjoy the ride. I also think it’s human nature to be thinking through the possibilities and questioning every character. The Last Time I Saw You is one of those books that automatically put my brain into solving mode. I didn’t trust any of the characters and felt suspicious towards just about everyone. By the conclusion, I was right and wrong! And I loved it! There were unexpected layers and satisfying twists.

I borrowed the audiobook from my local library with the Hoopla app. I enjoyed the narration by Julia Whelan.

Since posting on social media that I was reading this book, I’ve received recommendations and encouragement to read more books by these authors. I certainly intend to listen to my book tribespeople. 🤓

I have photos and additional information that I'm unable to include here. It can all be found on my blog, in the link below.
