City of the Lost is about a town of people who need to disappear. There is also murder. It’s amazing.

I was drawn to this book because I was looking for something similar to Jennifer Lynn Barnes’ The Naturals. Apparently I am drawn to books that feature dysfunctional human beings with dark pasts solving murders. Detective Casey Duncan fits into this trope right from the first line when she meets with another therapist to confess the murder she committed years before. It all gets crazier from there when events lead Casey to Rockton: a town in the Yukon that is completely off the grid and is a haven for both the innocent and the guilty who need to disappear. Because Rockton is cut off from the rest of society the town functions under the rule of the sheriff, Eric Dalton, who decides the town needs a detective after the disappearance of one of the town members.

It takes time for Casey to fit into her role in the police department, but the dynamic between Casey, Eric, and the deputy, Will, is my favorite thing in the book. I’ve read two of Armstrong’s YA series, so I knew the book would take some time to pick up speed, but she does a great job building characters, relationships, and the town. While I enjoyed the whole book, the last hundred pages really exploded everything and kicked it to a whole new level. I never saw the twists coming!

I read City of the Lost in about 24 hours and I totally had a book hangover after I turned the last page. I suspect this series will only get better as it goes on and I can’t wait to read more about Casey’s adventures in Rockton.

I’m glad that we don’t have to leave the Rockton world and characters even if we have left Rockton. It’s nice that the series gets a fresh start where Casey and Dalton get to build the town they want from the beginning. This, of course, brings new challenges and new murders. Hey, it wouldn’t be a Rockton book without it.

The thing that I love about these mysteries is the setting. Haven’s Rock, like Rockton, is set in the Yukon and so besides worrying about a killer in the woods the characters have to cope with the elements and the wildlife which are also deadly. Although this is a new series, everything feels pretty similar in tone, plot, and characters. If you enjoyed the Rockton series, you’ll enjoy this new installment at Haven’s Rock.

Another great addition to the Rockton series. I’m pretty sure this book had every kind of threat from hostiles to settlers, outsiders, council, and nature. Basically, everyone and everything was giving Casey a hard time. If you have been following the series, A Stranger in Town is certainly a must read since it makes some significant progress on the overall plot. I love getting to read more about Rockton and spend time with its large cast of characters, and I can’t wait to see where Armstrong will take the series next.

A Stitch in Time follows Bronwyn as she returns to her aunt’s house in Yorkshire where she used to spend time when she was growing up. As a child, Bronwyn would travel through the timeslip in her room to Victorian era where she befriended William Thorne. After her uncle’s tragic death Bronwyn never returned to the house and believed William to be a product of her imagination. As an adult, Bronwyn is discovering that the ghosts she saw and the friend she made are very real.

This book is a mixed bag of genres, such as romance, historical, paranormal, time travel, and mystery, and it is very much a fun read. Armstrong’s writing style has an addictive quality to it that I can never quite explain. Perhaps it’s because her stories are character driven and slow moving in a way that could be negative, but often just feels like spending more time with the characters. This book is different than what Armstrong normally writes, but at the same time it still felt very much like one of her books. If you’re looking for a book to help you escape reality, I would recommend this one.… (més)
