Nothing unordinary is about this trip, as the two families often tend to get together. But this trip uncovers multiple secrets the two families are keeping from their significant others.

The betraying secrets and horrific actions of the characters destroy friendships, families, and trust in this dramatic novel.

Night Flight to Paris

Night Flight to Paris by Cara Black

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kate has lost her family to the vicious Nazi, and ever since she has been keen to get her revenge. The time has come, but her mission is full of dangerous secrets and surprises. She risks her life to avoid getting captured or killed to help her friend. But the discovery that her friend can be a foe is the greatest disappointment of all.

My love for WWII novels returns with Cara Black’s latest novel Night Flight to Paris. The book starts slow, but it picks up the pace very fast. The plot is filled with many unanswered questions, secrets, and hidden facts. Kate’s character is bold and brave. I loved her story. The ending of the novel was phenomenal. Great WWII novel, would recommend it to any WWII or historical fiction lover.

My Father’s House

My Father’s House by Joseph O’Connor

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My Father’s House is the place that protects refugees that are running from the terror-hungry Gestapo. A group of friends unites to help the running escapees to flee the hands of the Nazis. The dangerous task has not escaped the eyes of the authorities and the group must decide between saving their own lives or the lives of the refugees.

A powerful and heartbreaking read. Out of my WWII novels, this is one of a few that takes place in nazi-occupied Rome. This book is inspiring in so many ways, and it is based on the true story of Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty, who has played a significant role in the lives of thousands of Allied soldiers and Jews. Great read, I would recommend this to any history lover.

Every Missing Girl

Every Missing Girl by Leanne Kale Sparks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Detectives Beck and Taylor already have a very tough job, searching for the missing girls. But their new case hits closer to home when Taylor’s niece goes missing. One by one, Beck and Taylor follow the leads. But the closer they get to the suspects, the more gruesome reality is waiting for them on the other side of the discovery.

Every Missing Girl is a dark thriller, it took me a few days to recover from it. But the reality is harsh and I liked the way Leanne Kale Sparks portrayed it in her latest novel. As much as I loved the characters and both detectives, their cases were hard to read about. Overall, great writing, a dark but gripping plot, and a very fascinating finale. Great read, would recommend it to all thriller lovers.

Thank you, NetGalley for a free and advanced copy of the novel in the exchange for my honest review.
