  • Island Thriller

    Synopsis: Four female friends take advantage of using a private island for free to have an opportunity to work on their art, however, the reader soon finds out that each woman is there to escape something in their life. Shortly after they arrive at the island, things don’t go as they had planned and soon the murders begin. Is there someone else on the island they don’t know about, or is the murderer one of them??? My thoughts: I enjoyed the atmospheric descriptions of the island, spooky buildings and weather and I found that it added a lot to the story. The author pays homage to Agatha Christie and the story “And Then There Were None” so the plot was somewhat predictable, however, I didn’t correctly guess the killer so high five to the author for pulling that off. Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Collins for providing a free copy of this book to me in exchange for an honest review.

  • Twisty suspenseful thriller

    Mia, Sam, Scarlett and Riley are all artists, attending school together. They decide a trip together to explore their art is just what they need. Whisper Island sounds like a dream, secluded Island off of Alaska with a mansion, theirs for the summer. 3 months of creating their art and friendship, what could possibly go wrong? Before it even begins Sam's brother Rob is also going, much to Mia's dismay. Rob just doesn't just tag a long but his girlfriend, Opal, is in tow. From the moment they arrive the trouble begins, and soon enough it is apparent that a killer is on the island with them. But who is the killer and why do they want them dead? What secrets are they hiding? Maybe the killer is among them? Carissa does it again, a story that unravels with many twists and surprises. Keeps you guessing until the end. I love stories that keep you enthralled and this was definitely one of them. Thank you to NetGalley and One More Chapter for an advanced ebook in exchange for an honest review.

  • One more chapter

    Whisper Island is a fast paced thriller that will keep you guessing as to who killing the friends off one by one by one. The author lets you get to know the 4 girls before they leave for the island and you think well things might not go well but how bad can it be. Riley, Mia, Sammy, Scarlett, Rob and Opal have all gone to Whisper Island in Alaska for the summer. The house looks nothing like the photos. You can feel tension among the friends. I love a closed room mystery , only so many suspects. I thought suspiciously of all of them at one point. It is indeed a book that you say to yourself just One More Chapter ; you want to know who is the evil culprit.

  • I expected better

    4 female art students decide to travel to Alaska to do a bit of soul-searching and concentrate on their ‘art’. Sammy’s brother has a friend who owns an island in the Bering Sea that they can use free for 3 months. It sounds almost too good to be true and of course, it is! The first hitch is that the brother decides to come to the island as well and turns up with his new girlfriend. He went out with his sister’s roommate for a while and she isn’t quite over him yet. The house doesn’t look at all like what they saw on the website and is rather dilapidated. The reader also knows that all girls have secrets in their past. The first night strange things start happening; they find an old diary and a skull buried in the sand, their boat is sabotaged overnight. Then, one of them is murdered. … We learn the story from the POV of each person on the island, but one of them can be untrustworthy. This constant switching of the narrator sometimes causes multiple versions of the same event. You also have to check who’s talking at any given time. It takes about a third of the book to get acquainted with the characters. It’s sold as a psychological thriller but I wouldn’t go that far. There is suspense and you do want to find out what’s going on but the pace is too slow. The ending is kind of what I expected as well. I only didn’t understand why they all had to die as well; the reason given is a bit shallow in my eyes. The book carries references to “And then there were none” and I appreciate the similarities but this is far from Agatha Christie. The idea and premise are good but unfortunately, the book doesn’t deliver. It’s not a bad book; it just could have been a lot better. I thank One More Chapter for inviting me to read this book and this is my honest, unbiased review.

  • Whisper Island

    Thank you to NetGalley and Carissa Ann Lynch for an advanced copy in return for my honest review. Whisper Island is available for purchase on February 5, 2021! Scarlett, Sammy, and Mia have been friends for years and one day Scarlett invites Riley to join their group. All four girls have graduated from art school and are dealing with their own internal struggles, from drug addiction to trying to get out from under their famous parents shadow. The girls decide to spend the summer on a private island in Alaska in hopes of buckling down and working on their art. While on the island, strange things start happening and slowly people start going missing or wind up dead. Will the girls be able to figure out who is harming them before they are all victims? This book had strong “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie vibes. Unfortunately for me, I wasn’t a fan of that classic – but Lynch does a good job of making it more modern and a bit more interesting. I will say that the ending threw me for a loop as I wasn’t expecting the culprit to be who they turned out to be but I also felt like it wasn’t a clean ending. Why the culprit did what they did was understandable but I wish I had more background on the reasoning. Overall, it was a fast read and a decent mystery.

    Thanks for your feedback!
