Jennifer's Picks

Jennifer is six years deep on the crew. She's an avowed news junkie and lover of the sixteenth century and all things France.

Plotline pet peeves?
When an author takes advantage of the reader by going into too much detail about something or someone that ends up not being relevant.

Monogamist or polygamist reader?
Monogamist. It's the only way.

Are you a morning reader or a night owl?
Night only. Ever. Helps me empty the day out of my head.

First book that made a big impression on you?
On The Road--Kerouac. I read it in 11th grade and wanted to quit school. My dad told me no and wouldn't let me use the car for two weeks. 

Most terrifying book experience?
Easy--8th grade--Salem's Lot (King). I literally did not go down into a basement for years.

Your mission as a bookseller?
To help people find their perfect book.

Anything else of note??
Yes. I love you and your recommendations, but please refrain from lending me books as I already have piles waiting to be read.

This should be THE summer 'go to' book.  Wow - My heart was pounding through most of this story.  The plot is unique and completely plausible - which makes it even more riveting.  And - cherry on top --  completely UNexpected ending.    5 - stars  10 thumbs up.

Extraordinary summer thriller.  Surprising, completely unexected details keep trickling out and I even found myself holding my breath.  But then, my mouth opened and my jaw dropped at the end.  Believable, compelling, organized plot that clips right along with the last couple paragraphs making the entire book!

Perfect summer escape to 1791 London that alternates  back and forth to current day.  A lighter story but just fun and slueth-y.  Well written, unusual, solid story with a great pay off.  This should be on any beach read list for a post-pandemic extravaganza.
