TBR Thursday

Kimberly @ Kimberlyfaye Reads started a new weekly feature that I'm excited to join in! This feature is to showcase what's on your to be read shelf (or eReader, or Audible library) and see what others think of it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? It's a way to dust off the books on your self and decide if they're worth reading!

Twenty-four-year-old Olivia Taylor Jones has the perfect life. The only daughter of a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, she has an Ivy League education, pursues volunteerism and philanthropy, and is engaged to a handsome young tech firm CEO with political ambitions.

But Olivia’s world is shattered when she learns that she’s adopted. Her real parents? Todd and Pamela Larsen, notorious serial killers serving a life sentence. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancé, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.

Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents’ past.

Aided by her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens’ last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.

I've seen this series all over the blogging world and Goodreads, and since I've only read her YA book (I think?), I'm curious about it.
What's stopping me is a love triangle that comes into the series later on. I've mentioned more than once that I cannot stand love triangles. I hate them with a fiery passion. They make me so angry!
Should I try this out anyway?


  1. Eh if you are weary about love triangles it sounds like you won't enjoy it.

  2. I hate love triangles as well. Didn't know this one had one :/

  3. I liked this one. But I've yet to continue on with the series. Love the author, though!

  4. I really want to read this series. I can't say if you should though, as I haven't started them. It sounds like great reads though!

  5. Despite some issues I am enjoying the series.
