The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish

Friends living together, friends meeting on commutes to work, marital affairs, and now a missing friend and Jaime is the last one to see Kit alive.

We follow Jaime and Clare, Kit and Melia, and Gretchen, and Steve as we hear background information on all characters and their current shenanigans.

Everyone seems to be friendly, but some might be too friendly. We find out Jaime and Melia are having an affair.  No one seems to know, but the police do when they are questioning Jaime.

There is a lot to absorb about each character, and when Kit goes missing you definitely can't figure out what's going on with each of them. 
 
Can any of the characters trust each other? I wouldn’t have trusted any of them.
 
Just who is the other passenger who seems to be a witness to the fact that Jaime and Kit were in an argument before they left the commuter boat.

This book truly dragged for me, and I couldn't really connect with any of the characters.....they all were unlikable.

The story line was very confusing as well, but I do have to say the ending twist and the revelations were brilliant. 3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley and in print in exchange for an honest review.

The Lights of Sugarberry Cove by Heather Webber

This book is as sweet as the name Sugarberry Cove with characters that are just as sweet and lovable.

Leala and Sadie’s mother, Susannah, still owned Sugarberry Cove Bed and Breakfast but it was falling apart along with their mother. 

When Susannah had a heart attack, the girls came back to help but found everything in disrepair even though there were guests staying there.

Wallpaper was peeling off the walls, the windows were filthy, and their mother was getting close to financial troubles.

Both girls who hadn’t been that close in years decided to help spruce up the place.  Working together also helped bring them closer, but their mother hadn’t changed from the aloof woman  that she was.

You will warm to the things happening and enjoy the stories behind the Festival of Lights that happens each year.  The Water Lantern Festival is the big draw for Sugarberry Cove, and it has magical powers.

THE LIGHTS OF SUGARBERRY COVE has lovely characters and a setting you would definitely want to visit.

Anyone who needs a light read that will lift your spirits will enjoy this book.

It will also have you take a look at your life choices and know they can always be changed.  

A lovely, sweet read. 5/5
