  • I Couldn't Turn the Pages Fast Enough!!!

    This book was a fun, exciting, intriguing, suspenseful, thought-provoking, and inspiring read!! So many exciting, intriguing, suspenseful, and thrilling moments in this book!!! I literally couldn't turn the pages fast enough!!! I really enjoyed the main characters, Toby, Josh, Colin, Toby’s BFF, Quinn, and Toby’s Mom, Ivy. They were likable, relatable, and genuine. I really liked Toby!! I felt an instant connection with Toby and was able to easily relate with her for the most part. She was sweet, smart, brave, kind, caring, considerate, determined – the friend you’d turn to and want on your side! However, she was also somewhat insecure, naïve, and gullible. I completely understand why Toby was fawning over Josh even after all these years. I mean come on – we’ve all had a Josh or two – a guy we had the biggest crush on who probably barely knew our name let alone knew we existed lol! So, for Toby to even have a chance to be with the dream guy and for him to be acting like he’s also into her – yeah, I totally get it. But unfortunately, giving someone that much power really clouds your thinking and so it’s easier to overlook them constantly lying to you and hiding things from you. But if they’re a murder suspect – might not be a good idea to have blinders on lol! I really liked Colin! He is charming, gentle, protective, handsome, strong, persistent, and romantic. I loved his connection with Toby and their interaction together. I loved how he opened up and confided in with Toby about his mom also having gone through cancer and how difficult it is on both the patient and their families. I also really liked Quinn, Toby’s best friend since Kindergarten. Quinn was supportive, encouraging, loyal, and compassionate. She was also very eight months pregnant, but regardless still had Toby’s back. One of the major themes in this book is bulling. Bulling is such a serious and heinous act. Yet it still happens every day. I really appreciate the author shining a light on such an important topic that often gets swept under the rug. Toby showed us that bullying leaves deep permanent scars that even though they can’t be seen to the naked eye, those torturous memories stay with you forever and can be recalled at any given moment. We see this over the course of the book through flashbacks as Toby recalls intimate, torturous moments when she was bullied at camp by the mean girls led by Tonya. Unlike the main character Toby, I was never really bullied growing up. But these days bullies are EVERYWHERE!!! I’ve had to deal with bullies in the workplace, as neighbors, and at the gym. I’m sure most of us, can at least relate to having to deal with a bully somewhere in our lifetime – which is why Toby made such a great, well-rounded, easy to connect with character – that I think most of us can relate to at least some part of her. Toby is a character you want to invest in and root for! As this book is book one in Toby’s upcoming series, I look forward to getting to spend more time with her and watch her character arc develop and grow! I think the author did a fantastic job on her character development as these characters were so real, raw, and personal on many levels! This book is book one in the Toby Wong Book Series. It can be read as a standalone. However, this book series has been greenlit and there many upcoming books in this series to be released in the very near future! All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it! I think all romantic suspense and mystery readers will like this book too! So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**

  • Divorce Is Murder

    Divorce Is Murder, the first installment from the Toby Wong Mystery series by Elka Ray. I found this mystery to be a great read. I did not find it predictable and was left guessing of “who did it” until the end. I give Divorce Is Murder four stars and look forward to the next book from the Toby Wong Mystery series to see what happens next. I recommend this book for readers who enjoy a fun mystery. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

  • Divorce is Murder

    Divorce is Murder is the first book in the Toby Wong series, and it introduces us to a female, family-lawyer whose client is a blast from the past. Toby had a major crush on Josh Barton when they were young, but bullies made sure it next happened. Now, nineteen years later, she's back where it all began. I would class this more as mystery than romantic suspense as Toby isn't sure who she wants, although I'm not very clear on why! There is a police officer who is interested in her, he is not a liar and plays no games, but she seems more interested in a crush from nearly twenty years ago who has constantly lied to her. Hmm, I guess you can see who is my favourite, but I'm guessing this is a storyline for further into the series. There is a great cast of characters - from a psychic, whimsy-loving mom, to the bullies from Toby's childhood. Some of the mystery was obvious (to me) and some of it, not. I thoroughly enjoyed the build up and the climax to this story. With no errors that disrupted my reading, this was an enjoyable read from beginning to end, and I have no hesitation in recommending it for all fans of cosy murder-mysteries. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

  • Awesome book!

    When you find yourself missing the characters of a book after you’re finished reading you know they are well developed! I read this book until 4:30am, it’s gripping and unpredictable. I strongly recommend this book!

    Thanks for your feedback!
