The Widow of Pale Harbor

By: Hester Fox

When I read the synopsis of The Widow of Pale Harbor about a man with a secret past, a woman living in a big old mansion scorned by the town for fear she’s a witch and a series of escalating crimes based on the writings of Edgar Allen Poe I was like sign me up!

More than anything else I would classify this book as a romance and… do not sign me up.

Mooncakes? Depends on What You’re Looking For…

Mooncakes

I received a copy of Mooncakes from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. It’s scheduled to be released October 15th per Goodreads.

I was really looking forward to this one: witches and what seemed like cooking. No it doesn’t take much to make me happy but after thinking on it for a couple of days I’m very torn on Mooncakes.

When I first started book blogging I told myself be careful of Netgalley. Don’t get overwhelmed with ARCS. I am a total mood reader and also one of the worst things you can do is give me any kind of reading deadline.

I’ve mostly kept to that and appreciate any ARCs that I do get but my relationship with Netgalley can definitely swing like a pendulum between moods.

It probably is and you should run away.

When Jessica lies her way into a morality study the strapped for cash girl feels like she hit the jackpot when the Doctor chooses her for “further studies.” Unfortunately for Jess Doctor Lydia has her own goals for this one and may severely be in need of a therapist herself.

Soon Jess finds herself trapped in a maze not only with no way out but no clear definition of the rules.
