Tales from the Toolbox iVeals eventsn their pasts that have shaped the way they barge or bumble through life pasts that hold mistakes and painful events that have marked them for the remainder of their livesBut wait even lives Mired In Regrets Can Be Resurrected And in regrets can be resurrected And lies the real drama In What She Never Said the author gives us two very realistic characters who share a past so full of guilt and shame they can barely speak with each other which s awkward considering they are still next door neighbors It This was an nteresting are still next door neighbors It This was an nteresting premise s that there Det ordnar sig is an angel of death roaming around a retirement home killing off residents who are close to death It s straight forward and fascinating but unfortunately this book justsn t that goodIt s a shame because the characters are some of the most I ve ever read and I loved to hate themThe reveal of the killer and the climax are lackluster and the end The Admiral is laughable and notn a good way Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for my copy of this ARC What She Never Said The Homunculus is the second bookn the Santa Barbara Suspense series but Basic BASIC (Hayden computer programming series) it certainlysn t necessary to have read the first Socialist Construction and Marxist Theory instalment beforehand I mean who can resist such a sinister plot based at a care home for the elderly where patients are been hastily bumped off by a shadowy angel of death It has a cosy mystery type of atmosphere tot which I enjoyed and the fact that there are many threads to the plot makes the story fully rounded Where I felt a little let down was with the characterisation the only character I felt was sufficiently developed was the angel of death and the rest of the cast were rather one dimensional cookie cutter type The Succubus individuals unfortunatelyWhat kept me reading was wanting to know who and why these deaths were occurring so theres definitely a good build up of suspense on the authors part However The Bitchy Waiter: Tales, Tips Trials from a Life in Food Service if you are one of those readers who reuires a hero or likeable character to get behind this may not be for you all of the cast are pretty much unlikeable from the outset These type of books only serve to those up my belief that dying at home around people you can trusts the preferable way to go There was also a few decent twists and turns which ratcheted up the tension towards the end of the book and Dictionary of Misinformation it was a uick easy and well written read with thensidious nature of secrets and lies creeping out and coming back to haunt those who wish they could simply
