Miracle Creek is a legal thriller involving a Korean family and a single mother who has been accused of killing her autistic son.
Pak and Young Yoo operate a pressurized oxygen chamber that is used for therapeutic purposes on different patients. During one of the therapy sessions, the oxygen chamber explodes and two people are killed. The trial explores everyone who was there the day of the explosion and uncovers secrets and lies of those individuals.
For me, this book makes you think about the lengths someone would go to in order to protect those that they love. This was such a great story and was impossible to put down. It kept me guessing up until the end as to who was behind the explosion. I can confidently say that this has become my favorite Mystery book of 2019 so far!! I can’t recommend this book enough and if you haven’t read it I would highly suggest you go and get it.
In case there were any guesses, I rated this a 5/5 stars!!
April started out really strong for me and then fizzled out, but that’s ok. I was able to read 2 books during April and they were both ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) that I received through NetGalley so that was very exciting for me!
Both authors were new to me. In total I read 638 pages and my average rating was 3.5 stars.
Full reviews of these books are in prior posts on my blog but short recaps of the books are below:
I have 2 more ARCs waiting for me in NetGalley. I’ll be splitting those up between May and June and will post reviews as I finish them. Here’s hoping I have a more productive reading month during May!
This book starts off with the murder of Jordanian student, Siwar Salaiha on her 25th birthday. Her consciousness goes into the body of Wyatt who was born on the same day Siwar was murdered.
Wyatt grows up and develops a fascination with Siwar’s death and begins his own investigation to find out who is responsible.
I received an advanced copy of this book from Natasha Tynes and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review and it comes out on June 21. This book was unlike anything I have ever read before. The story kept me guessing up until the very end as to who killed Siwar and I loved Wyatt’s character.
I rated this book a 4/5 stars and would definitely encourage everyone to get it when it comes out in June!
