    Slow burner with interesting reveals.

    Bitter Orange reminded me of Summer days when I was a child. I could head out into the woods for an adventure, go swimming all day, or laze around the house eating random things from the cupboard. Claire Fuller perfectly captured the feeling of lazy summer days where you don’t have a care in the world. And the descriptions of the dilapidated mansion and grounds had me wishing I was there with Cara, Frances, and Peter exploring a secret world. Their late night meals filled with delicious food and bottles of wine had me feeling jealous of their gluttony and wanting to send my husband to the store for the makings of a charcuterie board. Bitter Orange was the perfect end of Summer read for me. It was filled with revelations I didn’t see coming and drama that I didn’t want to turn away from. It was slow at times, but isn’t that how you want Summer to pass. I was not bothered by the pace because Fuller kept giving just enough information to make me want to see what was going to happen next. How the trio’s story came to an end had me pausing to rehash what had happened. I enjoyed thinking back to the various parts in the story that foretold how it would end. But even with the foreshadowing I still found the ending to be, while not shocking, definitely an ending that I will remember for a long time. This is a book that I will be recommending when people are looking for something a bit different. To remind them of Summers past and that living outside of your means may not always be the best thing to do.
