Review: Die Eishexe

Die Eishexe Die Eishexe by Camilla Läckberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bought this in German when the price was lowered and I received an iTunes info-mail (but bought it at Thalia). Forgot to put it on my TBR/owned. And just checked it after reading an answer on my favourite GR-group "What's the Name of That Book???" - message 10.
Lately I was rather lazy, both writing reviews and reading less. If there is a review I will first write it in German, as I will read the German translation, German being my first language.

Review: The Coast-to-Coast Murders

The Coast-to-Coast Murders The Coast-to-Coast Murders by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Had to think about this for a while, the story was twisty and complicated, but very interesting - but the epilogue?
Well, I thought that was a flashback and not necessary for the story.
Then I read a few reviews or question/answer about the book here on Goodreads.
And read the epilogue again.
Not sure what to make of it.
Rating books and reviewing them I regard the ending as significant, and the epilogue if it is not a flashback would warrant a "2 star, not recommended" from me, as it ruins the book.
As it is, I have not further investigated, what the authors say about it, and my advise is:
disregard the epilogue or do not even read it.

Without the epilogue or as a flashback I stand by my 4star rating, which is also a recommendation.
Might investigate further, if I find the time. Please comment or link to something, if it helps.

Review: The Drowned Girls

The Drowned Girls The Drowned Girls by Loreth Anne White
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lent with Kindle Unlimited, 3,5 * rounded to 4 for the first book in the series, not enough suspense, too long. And as often, the personal problems grate on my nerves, although some are part of the story.
Might look into the second book in the series if it is also on KU, and then decide wether I like the series or not - currently I am not sure, more leaning to "not" maybe it gets better?!
Also the first book I finished in 2021.
