  • Hook, line, and sinker: I MUST read every one!

    What an excellent grouping of four nail-biting books in one sampler, just enough of each novel to tease you and pique your interest. I definitely must read them all. I haven't read any Enola Holmes books yet and from this snippet, I can see it's my loss. Lots of catching up to do. These Silent Woods is a mystery thriller about a father and his young daughter living off the grid. Lots of "whys" floating around in my head after this one. The Missing Hours starts off with a jolting shock and doesn't let up from there. Our worst fear put down on paper. Hello, Transcriber is a courtroom thriller from a totally overlooked aspect: the studious transcriber who sits invisible but documenting each and every word. Hook, line, and sinker: I'm allowed a glance at just enough of these new thrillers to want to finish every single one! Thanks so much to St. Martins Press- Minotaur Books!

  • Amazing way to preview upcoming books!

    I honestly cannot explain how excited I get every time I see a Minotaur Sampler available to read, they're such a good way to preview upcoming books. This one contained four previews of four very different books so there should be something for every mystery lover here. Hello, Transcriber - Nov 30th 2021 - this novel is about an aspiring writer named Hannah who works as a police transcriber and ends up getting caught up in solving a crime. The sample really doesn't get too far into the plot but based on the preview I can tell this one is going to be a doozy. The language in incredibly descriptive and evocative - I'd honestly describe it as intense and it seems like this one is going to be quite dark and potentially morbid (early mentions of suicide, animal death, and descriptive mentions of corpses). I personally will be holding off on this one for now but if you're okay with darker themes then I would absolutely recommend this to you! These Silent Woods - Oct 26th 2021 - this one is about a father and daughter who live off the grid in the Appalachian mountains and what happens when the isolated existence they've known suddenly changes. Their supply delivery doesn't show up for the first time, someone disappears, and for the first time ever a stranger appears in the woods and this seems to set off a chain of events that will change their lives forever. I love rural settings in my thrillers and this one seems to have quite a few mysteries going on so I'm definitely looking forward it! The Missing Hours - Sept 14th 2021 - !!! this is definitely the one that I'm most anticipating after this sampler. The Missing Hours is about a trust fund college student who experiences memory loss after a night of black out drinking. The preview only shows her trying to figure out what happened during the time she can't remember but from the description it seems that she also ends up going missing which leads to a city wide investigation looking for her. The sample of the book features three different POV characters and I thought all of their voices were great so I'm really looking forward to this one. I do think trigger warnings for sexual assault will likely be necessary for this one so consider that before you pick it up yourself. While some of the content does have me a little hesitant to read this I'm still going to pick it up because I found the preview really engrossing. Enola Holmes and the Black Barouche - Aug 31st 2021 - this is the 7th book in the series about Sherlock Holmes' younger crime solving sister and while I've heard of the netflix movie I had no idea it was a whole book series as well. The preview gives an overview of some of Enola's previous escapades but doesn't really get into the mystery so I can't really comment on plot but the description of the book does sound very interesting. This book, and the series in general seems like a great fit for any young adult or middle grade fans of Sherlock Holmes or mysteries in general but it being the 7th book in the series I think I will probably skip it for now. Even though they weren't all for me these books all seem very well written and if any of them sound interesting to you I would definitely recommend picking them up!

  • Great way to add 4 books to your TBR list!

    Just enough of these 4 books to put them all on my to-read list asap! Great compilation of authors and I know each book will be worthy of recommending!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Not interesting enough

    Thanks to NetGalley and Minotaur Books for letting me read this book prior to its publication. My opinion is 100% honest, unbiased, and my own. Since I had already read another sampler by Minotaur, they sent me this one for me to read. Unfortunately, none of the books included in the sampler managed to hold my attention. The thrillers didn't look interesting enough for me to want to read the full book. And after watching the cinematographic version of Enola Holmes, the books irritate me just as much as that movie. So, sadly, I won't be interested in reading any of those books.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great sampler. Find your book!

    The Minotaur Sampler, Volume 3 I’m counting myself lucky to have received an ARC to review for books coming out in fall, 2021. What a perfect way to find a book you’ll love. Four previews, all mysteries, made it hard to find a favorite. Hello Transcriber, These Silent Woods, The Missing Hours, and Enola Holmes were the four great picks in volume 3. Don’t pass up this sampler to find your pick for a good read or two for those chilly fall afternoons.

    Thanks for your feedback!
