Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, she wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light. If the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died sixty years ago?

Do I Recommend this book? If you like a good mystery paired with an older cast check this one out! 

Notes and Opinions:  Man this one was awesome! This one deals heavy with secrets, loss, memories, and stories from the past.  I was pulled in from the very first pages and didn't let go until the end.  You just do not know what is going on sometimes in this one and that worked out so well.  I couldn't out it down.  And although parts of it felt a little off I still enjoyed it so much!  If you are looking for an older blend of characters as well as stories from the past and a good mystery check this one out! It won't do you wrong!

I liked the book Life After by Katie Ganshert.

I don't have a favorite contemporary read. Right now, I am listening to Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and enjoying it. Thanks for the chance to win Three Things About Elsie! I saw this post in the Saturday, Jul. 28, 2018 edition of The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader.
