Ter has a genuine honesty that I didn t expect to find between the lines And while the plot is troubling at times there are beautifully sharp edges to it that have left me movedWe ve created our perception of the truth That s all reality ever is In Malice uite Close is a lot like looking at an old painting that you now you could never paint or understand but you intrinsically love as though it is your very own Do not let the amount of time it took me to finish this book lead you to believe I found it difficult to get through In fact it took me longer to read than most books simply because I took my time drinking in every single word making it last as long as possible As much as I wanted to Fearless (Warriors Of The Dragon Banner, know how it would end I never once wanted to be finished with this great story I don t evennow how to review this book It is multi layered and not straight forward in any way Ultimately I believe the author is using the complex characters in the book to dispel the idea of truth being the only reality when truth does not necessarily exist except in the mind of the interpreter It is a disturbing story that is artfully told I honestly could not put the book down In fact like art interpretation is very personal and represents a culmination of a person s experiences Kind of like a Rorschach test only using than ink blots The twists and turns the book takes was intriguing and the at last dizzying when coming so fast As one character points out humans love riddles and will obsess over them Life is full of unsolved mysteries that plague me years later The author created an enigmatic character Giselle that nobody really When Valentines Collide knew except in bits and pieces Even when combined in one room those bits and pieces did not uite make up the entire woman She was a riddle that became and obsession for manyThe content and the story is very well planned and executed leaving the disturbing aspects eclipsed by the novel itself The mysteriesept me turning the pages because I wanted to His Temporary Cinderella know the answers to the riddles whichept revealing riddles This one I would encourage to a book group although not to the ladies in my congregation Not that I don t think they should read it because I enjoyed it in a twisted sort of way I simply don t want their version of the truth of me to be interpreted by the books I recommend For them I recommend Pollyanna Sexual content High amount and part of Giselle s feelings of worthDialogue Moderate swearing F word usedViolence ModerateContent Taboo subjects are addressed although not necessarily acted out in the way the reader might have expected Predatory sexual acts rape incest exhibitionism voyeurism among other subjects are broached Remembering that I am a prude in my inner core I did not find the approach to be inappropriate If I am specific I will spoil the book 5 stars audio2 drawn out stars story.

I won this book on goodreads from Viking and I am very thankful The first chapter will get you hooked I would highly suggest this book All of the lies and betrayls are mixed with what the characters think love is A great book that ept me guessing until the very end If you loved this book then boy do I have the book for you OThis is a bad retelling of the book Lolita It s very similar to that classic and as such it just can t hold a candle It s actually so similar and tight a retelling that I m amazed it wasn t put in the book blurb The author flips things around or delays them and the murder is different but still It s uite similar from the journal start to most everythingThug Notes summery of Lolita the Ryder just can t compare The changes she makes are odd and don t really help the book either For example she tries to make Tristan to be likeable And she fails One of the uncomfortable things about Lolita is how the author is able to make you feel bad for Humbert and Ryder doesn t have an inkling on how he did thatBasically this book is in multiple VPs and Lolita isn t That s the crux of why Tristan would never be considered likeable No one truly like Humbert but the author controls your POV so well in Lolita that he doesn t give you the chance to see from others perspectives nor does he hid what the pervert does he has Humbert rationalize it allOne uggy scene in Lolita has them Humbert and Lolita having sex not in detail mind you in a cottage one the first time he has her He tries to put her to sleep with sleeping pills and he explains how this was for her own good Then he says that they didn t work but it s okay because she wasn t a virginThe reader Booties And The Beast knows that s a load of croak but we alsonow Humbert believes it and having only one POV a highly unreliable one at that makes it hard not to Dance and Cultural Diversity kinda sorta understand That s the strength of Lolita and this book totally misses the markThe other thing was that most of his choices simply don t make sense Karen was far older that Delores who was 12 at the time so it made sense toeep the father daughter thing going on Karen was almost 16 Why Navigating Japan's Business Culture: A Practical Guide to Succeeding in the Japanese Market keep up the pretenseIf he was so rich why not just fake an ID for her If she wouldn t be working then why does she need a SSI I can think of absolutely no reason what so ever that she d need to assume the life of his dead daughterWhy did she marry Luke I don t understand that Inow it was probably for the daughter but that still doesn t make any sense It was the 1980s not the 1920s Unwed mothers weren t all that rare back then Why would he not move them away from suspicious people and why move to WashingtonNone of it made any sense This novel left me entirely in awe The complexity of the plot the depths of the characters and the beautiful use of language themes and imagery absolutely captivated me The story it. A sophisticated mystery debut in which priceless art and unspeakable desires convergeWhen French expatriate Tristan Mourault becomes enad with fifteen year old Karen Miller he rescues her from her working class circumstances and stages her deat.
Self was a gorgeously crafted labyrinth that sprawled through obsession jealousy self examination self denial beauty and art Each path of the different plot elements flowed seamlessly into one another yet still retained enough of their own uniueness that none of them felt over used or repetitive I loathe to go into too much detail of the plot itself because this is a story that retains an eerie beauty in it s dark secrets Ryder is obviously a master when it comes to wo Audio 5 StarsStory25 Anticlimactic Stars The story felt unnecessarily long and the details about Art were mind numbing If not for the amazing narrator performance and my need to Pilgrim Snail know who done it this would have been a DNF This is one for those who like a little thinking with their suspense It is a literary commercial crossover book which just means that it s a page turned filled with characters that have been fleshed out to the point where you get tonow them and they stay with you long after you finish the bookFilled with interesting characters plots twists and even out loud moments where you go OMG I love it when a book can do that to me There are tons of great reviews out there for In Malice uite Close I won t rehash the obvious I ll just give this one two thumbs way up And I ll An Unsafe Haven keep an eye on the Bestsellers lists because I m sure we ll see it there soon enough Book moved from repulsive sections to fascinating sections I would just decide to stop reading when a engaging section would start In general though could not recommend and didn t even retain for the annual book sale My copy was left in a pensione in Florence I am afraid to pick up another book too soon after this one for fear that it might be much like chasing a fine wine with a pasty toothbrush letting it linger a bit seems far attractive I will say admittedly that I was contemplating moving on to another book a bit after the initial excitement had faded what a mistake that would have been The story here is great and full of savory characters and exciting twists but the language here is the real winner I praise Brandi Lynn Ryder for her absolute command of the English language and conseuently my full and floral imagination If I could write like this I would exhaust myself to death by pen I sometimes underline passages from books that I find particularly impressive or poetic but with this book ordering a copy entirely in underline might be appropriate Brava Bien fait In Malice uite Close is Brandi Lynn Ryder s debut novel And as blown away as I am by the book itself I am even blown away by this fact The writing is spectacular and the story itself is just as magnificent Put these facts together and there is no denying Ms Ryder s core talent as an authorI expect that this book will stay with me for a long time to come It s disturbing and heart wrenching subject mat.
