When they do end up being done well, they produce amazing novels like The Thirteenth Tale and Verity I m very happy to say, Maxwell absolutely nailed it with The Caretakers.
I can not rave enough about this book, and I definitely think all readers should try it Fast paced and thoroughly engrossing, The Caretakers is a wonderful piece of writing A huge thanks to Lake Union Publishing and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC.
I m thrilled to say that The Caretakers will be released in April 2020, and I cannot wait to share it with you all In the meantime, happy reading everyone, and cheers to a wonderful rest of 2019 All the best Eliza I received this from Netgalley.
com for a review Filmmaker Tessa Shepherd helped free a man she believed was wrongly imprisoned for murder When he kills again, Tessa s life is upended A crumbling monument to a gruesome history, the mansion that Tessa and her twin sister inherited has been abandoned by all but two elderly sisters retained as caretakers They are also guardians of all its secrets.
Nice twist at the end I like the way this author writes, it s readable and interesting The mystery was very believable and all the loose ends got tied up in the end.

75 Absolutely enjoyed this book and one that was full of twists and turns It is not often that i am able to read a book within a day or two, but on this occasion, i did The story flowed so well and although i am not going to write what the story is about as i prefer one to read the book for themselves, i can recommend I shall be looking out for books by Eliza Maxwell.
My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy This is my honest review, which i have voluntarily given.
I have held off writing this review for days because I just wasn t sure how to rate this I ve settled on 3 stars but I m still not feeling vetted to it being either higher or lower Let me explain Several years ago I read The Grave Tender which, I believe, might be the author s first book Regardless, that book just blew me away It was unlike anything I had read in a very, very long time That book was so beautifully written that I found myself instantly moved to tears by some sentences and sometimes just stopped dead in my tracks by the complete juxtaposition of the darkness of the story and the bright beauty of the writing I found myself stopping to reread sentences over and over again just to try and capture that original 2.
5 Stars, rounded up Filmmaker Tessa Shepherd helped free a man she believed was wrongly imprisoned for murder When he kills again, Tessa s life is upended.
