Netgalley Picks of the Week | 9th April

Netgalley 9 Apr

Hello everyone! Here is my latest Netgalley picks blog post.

Here are some of the best sounding books I’ve found on Netgalley this week. It’s a bit of a boring one this week! Sorry!


Title: Below the Tree Line

AuthorSusan Oleksiw

SynopsisFelicity O’Brien hopes the warning shot fired from her porch is enough to scare off the intruder who’s been snooping around her family’s farm. Days later, when two young women are found dead nearby, Felicity can’t figure out how the deaths are related, and even her inherited healing touch isn’t enough to ease the community’s pain over the tragic loss.

Felicity only knows that somebody wants something bad enough to kill for it, but all she has is the worn out property her parents passed down to her. Joining forces with her friend Jeremy Colson, Felicity tries to uncover the truth and save herself and her land from those who would do her harm.

  1. CLOSE YOUR EYES has such a beautiful cover, and the description sounds equally as good. i’m most definitely going to request, even though i already have a million books to read and review and 0 time to do so!

    Also: i’m running the book blogger awards now through the end of the month so if you haven’t cast nominations, check it out here: (i’m posting this on all my comments so sorry if you already have, i promise i don’t self-promote usually haha)
