[Read] (I Mean You No Harm)

Mportant part of the book but I felt myself much invested in Vic s sketchy life and Bette and Layla reconnecting Bette is actually hands down my favorite character and and Bette and Layla reconnecting Bette is actually hands down my favorite character and wish this book had really just been their road trip and conversations throughout I liked the flashbacks of the past but they felt a little bit clunky and random I think it would ve made sense for the chapters to be titled based on the narrator although it was so creative to name the chapters based on the location of the character I don t think I ve ver seen that before Lastly I njoyed the nding and I was super surprised as to who was involved and who wasn t involved BUT I wish the last 2 3 chapters were cut out It was too Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation explain y Ending the book at the news article or right when Layla decides to drive back to Ohio would ve been perfect and given me justnough to think about This book wasn t bad at all it just needs a little polishing in my opinionThank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in xchange for an honest review Layla an artist that recently lost her job is troubled by her mother s death Although her father Vic just passed away she is unsure of how to feel about his death specially since he s known to be a criminal She Generations and Collective Memory embarks on a journey with her half sister Bette andnds up learning a lot about her sister and her father who was practically non xistent during her childhood She also tries to figure out the truth behind her mother s death I was ready to give this book 45 as I njoyed the beginning I njoyed the relationship between Layla and Bette I started I njoyed the relationship between Layla and Bette I started interest towards the Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America end It felt a bit dragged and pieces didn t fall into place Thank you NetGalley and publishers for an advancedlectronic copy of this book to read and reviewFirst off I am a character reader In real life I m a total people watcher so characterization in novels is critical for So lucky for me this book focuses primarily on characters the plot line is secondary novels is critical for So lucky for me this book focuses primarily on characters the plot line is secondary at points almost nonessentialWith that said I was interested in Layla her stranged half sister Bette and the line of characters associated with their shared career criminal father Vic I still felt a little disconnected from them though ven with so much insight into their lives and their past But out of all the characters I found Jake Layla s nephew to be the one I cared the most aboutWhile the bulk of the novel takes place during a road trip from Ohio to Arizona the substance comes in the stories and flashbacks that occur along the wayI have seen this book categorized as a suspensethrillermystery but I didn t find it thrilling or suspenseful at all instead I found that it made me curious I was curious about how their lives all connected and how the backstories made the characters act and react the way they did I would agree that it fits into the general fiction categoryNow there was a small mystery that I felt was downplayed until the Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets (Paper)) end of the book where there was about 20 pages when said mystery came to its conclusion In thend it was my curiosity that kept me hookedThis book is about family and grief and with a dash of revenge It s about choices The nding was bittersweetThis is an asy read but if characters drive your decision to put books on your TBR list this is a good option It s not set to be released until August 3 so take noteOverall I d give this a 355 because while it peaked my curiosity I didn t find it possessed that hard to put down ualit.
