Different ClassDifferent Class: A Novel by [Harris, Joanne]

by Joanne Harris

 

Roy Straitley has been a teacher for thirty years. He’s had his fair share of oddball students. But one particular student named Johnny Harrington never strayed far from his mind. Johnny was evil.

In a bizarre twist of fate, Johnny has suddenly returned as the new headmaster. And St. Oswald’s School of Grammar will never be the same.

While I did enjoy the book, there were times I found it a bit too wordy for my taste. I admit I skipped over what I considered a lot of superfluous words and phrases. Still a good read. Very  haunting.

Kyra Winthrop was involved in a diving accident that wiped her memory. She keeps having flashbacks of another person being there, but her husband, Jacob, insists there wasn’tThe Twilight Wife by [Banner, A.J.].

Kyra is sure Jacob i keeping something from her. But what?

The Twilight Wife kept me interested all through the book, however, I did feel that I knew at least part of the plot. And I did. A bit cliché but a good book. The atmosphere is dark and foreboding.  Definitely worth a read.

Pilar is an independent woman who falls for an older man. She becomes pregnant and gives up her child for adoption.

This story is dark, foreboding and captivating. I couldn’t put it down. It hooked me from the very beginning. Recommended for anyone who loves mystery as well as romance.
