“Reminders of Him” by Colleen Hoover.
After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where everything went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter.
However, the bridges Kenna had burnt proved impossible to rebuild.
Remarkably, everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.
In the triumph of all the abandonment faced by Kenna, the only person who hasn’t closed the door on her entirely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner also one of the rare remaining links to her daughter.
Explicitly, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an essential part of Kenna’s life.
Notably, the two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their bond grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve her past mistakes to build her future out of hope and healing.
“The Paris Apartment” by Lucy Foley
The book is about the cinematic mystery behind the disappearance of the character Ben.
Interestingly, this book involves the mystery of an old apartment building in Paris inhabited by residents Nick, Mimi, Sophie, Antoine, and the Concierge.
Reportedly, all the characters are mysterious and have something to hide.
Surprisingly, everyone is involved with Ben in one way or another, whether it’s the excellent guy Nick, the weird little Mimi, or the one with the silk shirt, exquisitely-cut dark skin trousers. A scarf brightly patterned Hermes silk around her neck who lives in the Penthouse of the building “Sophie,” or the old Concierge woman or the alcoholic Antoine, each of them has something to hide.
Notably, they’re all neighbours (well, you think they are until you find out there’s a mystery to that). Jess (Ben’s half-sister) suspects each of them and tries her best to find the hidden truth.
“The Maid” by Nita Prose
Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She lacks social skills and has different perceptions of the intentions of others. Her Gran used to interpret the world for her, codifying it into simple rules that Molly could live through.
Twenty-five-year-old Molly has had to navigate life’s complexities all by herself after her Gran’s death a few months ago,
She enthusiastically throws herself into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character and obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette make her an ideal fit for the job.
Remarkably, she delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection.
However, Molly’s orderly life is turned on the day she enters the infamous and wealthy Charles Black suite, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr Black himself lying dead in his bed.
Molly’s unusual conduct has the police target her as their lead suspect before she tries to figure out what’s happening.
Nonetheless, she quickly finds herself caught in a web of deception, one she has no idea how to untangle.
Fortunately for Molly, friends she never knew she had, unite with her in a search for clues to what happened to Mr Black—but will they be able to find the natural killer before it’s too late?
Strangely, A Clue-like, locked-room mystery and a heartwarming journey of the spirit, The Maid explores what it means to be the same as everyone else and yet entirely different—and displays that all riddles can be solved via association with the human heart.
“House of Sky and Breath” by Sarah J. Maas
In this book House of sky and breath has been marked under Top 5 books in 2022, which is also the sequel in the Crescent City Series; after House of Blood and Earth, Bryce Quinlan and Hunt Athalar are endeavouring to get back to normal―they may have saved Crescent City, but they now seek a chance to relax. Slow down. Figure out what the future carries after all the hustle in their lives lately.
The Asteri have kept their word, leaving Bryce and Hunt alone. But with, the danger seems to be growing as the rebels start chipping away at the Asteri’s power.
Interestingly, as Bryce, Hunt, and their friends get pulled into the rebels’ plans, the choice becomes clear: stay silent while others are oppressed, or fight for what’s right; and to note their traits: they’ve never been very good at staying quiet.
In this action-packed sequel to the #1 bestseller House of Earth and Blood, Sarah J. Maas winds a fascinating story of a world about to flare―and the people who will do anything to protect it. House of sky and breath is a must-read.
Another critical point is that “House of Sky and Breath” is the sequel to “House of Earth and Blood,” a fan favourite of fantasy/romance featuring demons, angels, and fairies.
“One Italian Summer” by Rebecca Serle
When Katy’s mother dies, she is left reeling. Carol was Katty’s best friend, and her first phone call was more than just being her mom. She had all the explanations; now, she is gone when Katy needs her the most.
To make consequences worse, their planned mother-daughter trip of a lifetime endangers: to Positano, the magical town where Carol spent the summer right before she met Katy’s father. Katy has lived waiting years for Carol to take her, and now she is encountered with venturing on the adventure alone.
As she steps onto the Amalfi Coast, Katy feels her mother’s spirit. Awe-struck by the stunning waters, beautiful cliffsides, delightful residents, and delectable food, Katy feels herself returning to life.
Surprisingly Carol appears—in the flesh, healthy, sun-tanned, and thirty years old. Katy is focusing on the truth that she somehow, impossibly, got her mother back rather than understanding what is happening.
Throughout one Italian summer, Katy gets to know Carol not as her mother but as the young woman before her.
Remarkably, she is not precisely who Katy imagined she might be, however, and soon Katy must reconcile the mother who knew everything with the young woman who does not yet have a clue.
Rebecca Serle’s following unique love story is here; this time, it’s between a mother and a daughter. With her signature “heartbreaking, redemptive, and factual” (Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author) prose, Serle has composed an exceeding novel about how we move on after loss and the people we never love genuinely leave us.
