Norma and I host a Goodreads reading group (The Traveling Sisters) and we thought it would be fun to start posting some weekly suggestions from some of our favourite reading experiences that we have had within our group. Since these books were such a success within our reading group we thought we would share these novels with you and hopefully, you will consider these weekly suggestions with your book club or reading groups.
Our first reading group suggestion is Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea. For our very first pick, we picked an unputdownable, fun and entertaining story with lots of twists and turns that kept us all guessing right up to the shocking and surprising ending.
Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea
Category: Crime Thriller
Why we chose this book
We read The Girl Who Was Taken with Lindsay and Kaceey and absolutely loved it and we thoroughly enjoy Charlie Donlea’s writing style. We highly recommend this story as well.
Why we are recommending this book for book clubs or reading groups
We read Don’t Believe It with seven of our Traveling Sisters and we recommend this one because it is such an entertaining and enjoyable story that will lead to a very lively discussion as you share your suspicions and theories along with thoughts on those very clever twists and turns. We think groups will love piecing this one together!

Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris
Norma’s Review and Rating
4.5 stars for this ridiculously fun, brilliant & entertaining book!
BRING ME BACK by B. A. PARIS had me racing through the pages and finishing this in just two sittings which I haven’t done in quite some time. I really upped my Kindle “time left in book” reading average with this book.
So here’s the thing about this book. It was an extremely enjoyable, entertaining, fun, and ridiculous psychological thriller novel that had me totally engrossed and interested right from the very first page. The psychological aspect of this novel I thought was extremely clever and well executed. I know that doesn’t sound right but that is the way I felt while reading this one. I wouldn’t say that this storyline was all that suspenseful or thrilling but I absolutely love the way that B. A. Paris tells a story though. There were definitely some questionable storytelling and one-liners here that had me rolling my eyes a little bit but all in all, nothing really irked me and I absolutely loved the Epilogue. Let’s just say the last line of this book I gave a little whoop and thought it was a good one and thank you B. A. Paris for that!!
B. A. PARIS delivers a very readable, unique and fun story here with unreliable characters that weave back and forth in a then and now perspective with short chapters to make this an extremely quick and easy read.
So if you are looking for a compulsive read with the help of some Russian Stacking Dolls to solve this mystery then this book is for you! Would recommend!
Publishing Date: June 19, 2018
